Just look at the playoff teams from last year and you will see not to many elite RBs.
I didn't say all of the playoff teams had elite backs, I was talking about how many carries are given to the teams starting running back in comparison to his backups
Pittsburg - Mendenhall
Baltimore - Rice
San Fran- Gore
New York - Bradshaw
Looks like most of the playoff teams gave the bulk of their carries to their starting running back, while their backups came into the game in situational roles.
New England and New Orleans used committees. However New Orleans tried drafting a work horse back in the first round in 2011 in Mark Ingram, he just didn't pan out. New England barely even runs the ball.
