Like the wide receiver position, having a fast running back can be an edge. Yes, other categories just as much, if not more. But speed still plays a big part in football in terms of breaking away from opposing defenders. Now that Madden 23 is out, we have a chance to determine which players have the highest ratings, including the running back position. So, which running backs are at the top? Let’s take a look.
Who are the fastest RBs in Madden NFL 23?
Here are the top ten RB’s in Madden NFL 23, rated by highest Speed:
- Dolphins HB Raheem Mostert (95 Speed)
- Vikings HB Kene Nwangwu (94 Speed)
- Colts HB Jonathan Taylor (94 Speed)
- Seahawks HB Kenneth Walker III (93 Speed)
- Vikings HB Ty Chandler (93 Speed)
- Free Agent HB Nathan Cottrell (93 Speed)
- Cowboys HB Tony Pollard (93 Speed)
- Titans HB Derrick Henry (93 Speed)
- Giants HB Matt Breida (93 Speed)
- Free Agent Tyreik McAllister (92 Speed)
Tyreik McAllister was not the only back to have 92 Speed in Madden 23. Several others, highlighted by Jaguars back Travis Etienne, Nyheim Hines, Nick Chubb, and Saquon Barkley also have 92 Speed.
The Miami Dolphins have the fastest wide receiver and the fastest running back in Madden 23. Former 49ers back Raheem Mostert has a 95 Speed rating, separating him from the rest of the pack.
Other notable names also in the top ten include one of Mostert’s former teammates in Matt Breida, Tony Pollard, All-Pro running back Jonathan Taylor, and one of the members of the 2,000 yard club in Derrick Henry. Henry punishes opponents with his power, but he also has a ton of speed. Henry received a 93 Speed rating, tying him with five other backs in Madden NFL 23.
