    Maybe I should have been more specific 2000-2009

    Martin and Gore earned a lot of not most of their stats before or after that time frame.

    Faulk and Martin both played nearly half their careers in the 90's

    I think LT easily tops the list from that era.

    He wasn't the best but Ricky Williams was my favourite RB before Peterson entered the league. LT, Portis, Westbrook, and McGahee were others I enjoyed watching.

    Didn't include guys like faulk, dillon, etc because they only had a couple good seasons in the 2000s compared to the guys on my list

    Peterson only played 3 years in the 2000s but they were so elite I think he cracks the back end of the Top 10.
