If you had to bet your life—or worse, your money—on 10 players to rush for 1,000 yards this season, who would you pick?
It's an interesting question. The easy solution would be to look at last year's leading rushers, take the 10 top guys who are still in college and call it a day. But that methodology might be flawed.
Things like coaching and blocking and scheme all play a role in this hypothetical wager. One player might have rushed for 1,300 yards last year, but if he's the first 1,000-yard rusher his coach has ever produced, that might make him an outlier.
And you never went to bet on an outlier.
