Top 2023 Fantasy Football Running Back League Winners: Raheem Mostert
Fact Checked by Nate Hamilton

The NFL regular season is in full swing, with a handful of franchises going a long way towards securing postseason berths while others flail about at the league’s periphery. In the Sunshine State, the Miami Dolphins playoff chances are looking bright. They have emerged as the AFC’s top team through 12 weeks of the season, with a 9-3 (.750) record and a three-game lead over the Buffalo Bills in the AFC East race.  

Up I-95 in Jacksonville, the Jaguars have emerged as the AFC South’s best playoff contender, with an 8-4 record and a one-game lead over the Indianapolis Colts in the division, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a game behind the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC South, at 5-7. All three have their fair share of top-notch running backs steering them through the season offensively, though a few players have emerged as top point-generators for their teams in 2023.  

Year after year, we always see our fantasy leagues taken down by a late-round stellar pick or an incredible mid-season pickup to help propel them to the championship.
