I just don't see him top tier.
I'd say Jamaal Charles, Peterson, C.J. Spiller are guys who are ELITE because they have ELITE playmaking abilities.
Marshawn has those 'omg' power beast mode runs from time to time but this is his first TRULY good statistical year and I have a hard time not giving credit to the read option or the fact he's a run between the tackles back and now the ends have to keep contain or spy on Russel Wilson.
Dunn and Duckett averaged a shit ton of YPC with Vick at QB...Lynch had been a bust up until last year and still only averaged 4.2 YPC.
This is his first real good statistical year in the NFL.
