Who is Most Likely to Win the Rushing Title? (2021 Fantasy Football)

Aug 22, 2021

Derrick Henry has been undeniably brilliant over the past two seasons. The Alabama product finally took his spot among the elite at the position in the NFL, and he used his amazing physical abilities to take home the rushing title two years in a row. Will Henry be able to capture the title a ridiculous three straight seasons? Or will another back step up to claim his throne?

Continuing our series of Most Likely To…, we’re checking in on players that are most likely to win the rushing title. Kyle Yates shared his pick on a recent podcast. Now, our writers provide their takes.

As you see, there are no surprise picks. Our writers are sticking with the chalk in general. Even the single Ezekiel Elliott vote has a strong case to be made given his historic production.

However, the main focus of our writers is on the reigning champ, Derrick Henry, and the dynamic Dalvin Cook. Henry has been the epitome of consistency over the last two seasons after taking several years to break through in Tennessee. Unfortunately, Cook has been on the opposite end of the spectrum in terms of injury concerns. But injuries seem to be the only thing holding Cook back from a rushing title. Will he string together his first full season in 2021?
