Marshawn Lynch is top-rated RB in Madden 16

We are entering that time of year when the top-rated players in the popular EA Sports Madden franchise are released. Today, the unveiling led us to the running back position.

While the NFL may be shifting from a rushing game to a pass-heavy game, there are still plenty of highly touted running backs in the game.

Leading the way in Madden 16 is Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch at 96.

Lynch edged out Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings (95) by one point and Kansas City Chiefs star Jamaal Charles by two (94). Rounding out the top five are DeMarco Murray of the Philadelphia Eagles and Le’Veon Bell of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who also registered a 94 overall rating.
