Without much news coming out of NFL training camps yet, the "NFL Top 100" list has been at the forefront of the NFL conversation, and it always brings some controversy.

Not long after going off on Twitter about how disrespectful his Madden rating was, Ezekiel Elliott can't like where he landed on this year's top 100.

Of course, ranking 24th in the NFL is nothing to scoff at, but it does put him behind three other running backs: Dalvin Cook (No. 21), Derrick Henry and Christian McCaffrey (both top-10).

Zeke may not have quite had the season that Henry or McCaffrey did in 2019, but he's been the most consistent running back in football since he was drafted in 2016. He has led the NFL in rushing yards per game in three of his four NFL seasons, amassing a league-best 5,405 yards in that time. No other back comes within even 1,000 yards of Elliott's total since 2016.

Already clearly playing with a chip on his shoulder, this could serve as even more motivation for Zeke in 2020.
