2024 NFL Most Rushing Yards Best Bets

The 2024-25 season is upon us, and it’s time to take our first look at the best bet for the rushing champion. 

Below are the three best bets right now in May 2024. 

Christian McCaffrey (+275) at DraftKings

There’s really nothing that changed for McCaffrey from last year to here. 

Sure, they drafted Ricky Pearsall in the first round and also running back Isaac Guerendo, but McCaffrey will still be a heavily featured force in the backfield as Guerendo profiles more as an explosive pass-catching threat and Pearsall is still beneath him in order of priority. 

Barring injury, expect McCaffrey to be among the top rushers.

Derrick Henry (+1200) at DraftKings

Henry is now with the Baltimore Ravens, and while Lamar Jackson is among the leading rushing threats at the quarterback position, Henry has hardly any competition on the running back depth chart with Justice Hill and Rasheen Ali behind him. 

Jackson will certainly do his thing in the rushing game, but Henry was brought in to be the bell cow. As he ages, the efficiency might drop, but he’ll still get a plethora of carries to take some stress off the passing attack. 

The Ravens were the leading rushing attack per game last season and Henry will be the go-to staple to assist with repeating that trend. 

Bet on Derrick Henry (+1200) at DraftKings 

Najee Harris (+6000) at DraftKings

Going with a dark horse selection to round out the best bets with Harris. 

The threat of Jaylen Warren is there. He had 157 carries last season and went for more than 5.2 yards per carry. 

However, still had 267 attempts. While he had just four yards per carry, he got the volume. 

Now, he enters the season losing some weight, has a run-first offensive coordinator in Arthur Smith, and the Steelers drafted two offensive linemen with two—Troy Fautanu and Zach Frazier—projected to start.

Like Henry, the efficiency might not be there, but the Steelers are going to run the ball plenty and likely better than 2024, thanks to their improved quarterback situation.
