2018 NFL rushing leaders through Week 6

These five players have racked up the most yards on the ground so far this season.


Todd Gurley - Los Angeles Rams

There's just one undefeated team left in the NFL and that's the L.A. Rams. Much of their success is thanks to their offense, powered by quarterback Jared Goff and running back Todd Gurley. The former Bulldogs star has 623 yards on the ground and nine touchdowns, as well as 247 yards receiving with two touchdowns.


Ezekiel Elliott - Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys can still contend, and if they make a move, it'll be thanks to Elliott. He was leading in rushing yards, but has taken a step back. He's now at 586 yards total, on 117 attempts, but has only three rushing touchdowns, so far. However, his five yards per carry is second-best of the top five players.


Melvin Gordon - Los Angeles Chargers

Of the top five rushers, Gordon has the highest per carry, with an average of 5.1 yards. He's racked up 466 yards and scored six touchdowns so far this season, and the Chargers are holding onto second place in the AFC West.


Kareem Hunt - Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs were among the two unbeaten teams; up until they met the Patriots. However, this high-powered offense runs on Patrick Mahomes' stellar passing and Kareem Hunt's ground work. Hunt has 456 yard and four touchdowns on 103 attempts. He's only in his second season, so sky's the limit for Hunt and this KC offense!


James Conner - Pittsburgh Steelers

Conner just barely edges out rookie Saquon Barkley by a mere 15 yards. For the season, the Steelers' running back has done well in place of Le'Veon Bell. Conner has 453 yards on the ground and seven touchdowns. That's second-best among all running backs, right now, for touchdowns scored.
