Out wide on the left-hand side, it doesn’t get much better than Derrick Henry. To be fair, he works all over the field. Jonathan Taylor isn’t far behind. He has less volume but has the best YPC off the left end of running backs with at least 3 carries in that zone. Most of these names are predictable because they’re the RB1s on their respective teams. Khalil Herbert and Javonte Williams don’t fit that bill, though, and they’ll be worth keeping an eye on.
