Where Does the Chiefs Running Backs Group Rank Among NFL Teams?

Pro Football Focus ranks the NFL’s running back units


It doesn't take an expert to recognize talent in the run game, particularly coming off a season like the Kansas City Chiefs had in 2015.

After the season-ending injury to running back Jamaal Charles in Week 5, Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware combined for 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns in the final 10 regular season games of what ultimately became a historical season for the Chiefs.

Their success didn't go unnoticed.

Mike Renner of Pro Football Focus ranked the NFL's 32 running back units from top to bottom, and the Chiefs were given plenty of respect.

Check out what Renner had to say about the running back group:

3. Kansas City Chiefs

Following Jamaal Charles' season-ending injury in Week 5 of 2015, The Chiefs proved that they go three-deep at running back as well as any team in the NFL. Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware both graded out positively. It's all about Charles, though, when he's healthy; no running back slips through tighter creases along the line of scrimmage, and Charles is a threat to take it to the house from anywhere on the field.
