Sure, if you just look at the total numbers for the year, Bernard was only fourth among rookies in rushing yards (695), but his 4.1 ypc was tied for first among backs with over 120 carries.

He also finished second among all rookies in receptions (56) and led all rookie backs in receiving yards (514).

When the ball was in Bernard’s hands, he was as good at making plays as any rookie this year, and he’ll be one of the best RBs in the NFL going forward.

Honorable Mention: Eddie Lacy, Green Bay Packers and Le’Veon Bell, Pittsburgh Steelers
