The Philly area may have produced the NFL's best running back in Jonathan Taylor.

There is a pretty concrete consensus that Jonathan Taylor is the No. 1 running back this season. After that, it's a matter of preference.

Do you think Derrick Henry still has some left in the tank after being run into the ground (and into an injury) year after year with Tennessee? Can Christian McCaffrey stay healthy enough to be a superstar yet again? Is Najee Harris going to leap forward and take the No. 2 slot without a solid passing attack behind him?

We've decided to try ranking the top 60 running backs ahead of fantasy football season. Here's a look at them:
