What are NFL rushing props?

NFL rushing props revolve around the ground game performance for players. For individual games, you can place your bets on the various player, team, and game props, several of which will be for over/under on rushing yardage.

There are also season-long rushing props. These are long-term futures wagers that aren’t settled until the outcome is known. The bets provide you with additional rooting interest throughout the season, and the chance at solid profits if you make the right call.

NFL Rushing Props 2022

Futures for the winner of the next Super Bowl odds can be released before the current big game is even in the books. Other futures market odds will come out a few months after the season comes to a close, including rushing props. Here’s a look at some of the top rushing props, but please note that the exact offerings may vary by sportsbook.

Most rushing yards

For this prop, you’re placing your bets on which player you think will lead the league in rushing for the entire year. There are plenty of intriguing candidates to choose from season after season. If we look at some recent odds from the DraftKings sports app, here’s what the numbers looked like for a few favorites.

  • Jonathan Taylor +450
  • Derrick Henry +650
  • Dalvin Cook +1000
  • Nick Chubb +1000

The positive odds across the board set the stage for some potentially lucrative returns. If you bet $10 on Taylor to lead the league and he goes on to do so, the return is $45, while a $100 wager could bring back $450.

While there’s no way to predict which backs will make it through the season unscathed, the injury risk should be accounted for while you’re making your choices. For example, if you’re not feeling great about a team’s offensive line, then betting on that club’s top back to lead the league wouldn’t be a good idea.

Most rushing TDs

This prop works the same as season-long yardage leaders with the goal of picking out which back will lead the league in rushing scores. Odds work in the same fashion: favorites up top, longshots on the bottom, and all other players in between.

  • Jonathan Taylor +450
  • Derrick Henry +650
  • Joe Mixon +900

Last season, Taylor was at the top of the charts with 18, followed by James Conner and Damien Harris, who tied for second with 15 apiece. Joe Mixon was fourth with 13, followed by Austin Ekeler with 12.

Most rushing attempts

The league leader in yardage also has a great chance to lead in attempts. You can bet on who will be the leader here as well at some online sportsbooks. Taylor also topped this category a season ago with 332, followed by Najee Harris with 307 and Joe Mixon at 292.

Player over/unders

Sportsbooks will also post over/under bets on individual running back totals. For example, DraftKings has made the below prop available for New York Jets rookie RB Breece Hall.

The bar has been set at 830.5 rushing yards. Bettors simply have to make the call on whether or not Hall will clear it. The odds are equal on both sides, but there can be some movement on the lines in response to betting volume.

As the offseason advances, we can expect to see more options listed, including player rushing TDs. Once the regular season gets underway, over/under rushing props will be available for each game on the docket.

Which RBs have the best chance to lead the league this year?

Over the offseason, Jonathan Taylor was the clear favorite to lead the league in rushing yards this season. The tough start for the Colts means that he has that much more company near the top of the board. Here are the current favorites for most rushing yards 2022-23.

  • Nick Chubb, Cleveland Browns: 
  • Jonathan Taylor, Indianapolis Colts:
  • Saquon Barkley, New York Giants:
  • D’Andre Swift, Detroit Lions: 
  • Aaron Jones, Green Bay Packers: 

Chubb is off to an awesome start for the Browns, but backfield mate Kareem Hunt will get his fair share of work. Taylor is still producing for the struggling Colts, while Barkley has been very productive for the first month of the season. The chase will continue to evolve as the season gets longer in the tooth.

Do any other RBs have a realistic shot?

The NFL regular season can feel like it goes by in a flash, but it’s a lengthy one for those on the field. Fortunes will rise and fall along the way for top rushers. Here’s a look at a trio of names that are off to slow starts but still have time to turn things around.

  • Derrick Henry, Tennessee Titans:
  • Christian McCaffrey, Carolina Panthers: 
  • Joe Mixon, Cincinnati Bengals: 

Henry and the Titans did not look like themselves for the first two games, but he and the team are rounding into form. McCaffrey is producing, but his injury history makes him far from a sure thing to sustain a heavy workload. Meanwhile, Mixon is off of last year’s pace for now.

Who led the NFL in rushing last year?

Jonathan Taylor led the league last season, and the race wasn’t even close. Nick Chubb, Joe Mixon, Najee Harris, and Dalvin Cook rounded out the top five, but they were all 500+ yards behind the leader. Here are the top 10 finishers from last season and their totals.
