1. Chicago Bears
Jordan Howard, Jeremy Langford, Benny Cunningham, Tarik Cohen
Compared to these backfields, this is a no brainer. Not only is Howard easily the best back of this bunch, they are just as deep as any other unit in the division as well.
Howard is legitimate folks, but most of you probably do not need me to tell you that. From his week two three rushes for 22 yards to his follow up of nine for 45 in week three, it became extremely apparent over a 12 run sample size that Howard needed to take over the backfield. Injury helped, but Howard took the job and never looked back, running for over 1,300 yards in 13 starts. He has great vision patience, and can use lower body power when needed. The Bears are going to lean on him, and it is a very sound strategy.
Langford lost his job, and may find himself on the roster bubble. He is a decent pass blocker and threat to catch out of the backfield so he may see some third down time, but the team also brought in Cohen and Cunningham would should be fighting for change of pace and pass catching playing time. Given that this regime hand picked Cohen and Cunningham and not Langford, they should be the two to look to. Both are great in the receiving game, and Cohen, despite being a rookie has big play ability that saw him drafted just before the potential starter in Green Bay, Jamaal Williams.
The two are great compliments to Howard, and this should be the strength of the Bears in the next season. In a division that has a lot of questions at this position, the Bears should dominate at running back.
