I’d say Grey has the best chance of going over my vote of 500 and wouldn’t be surprised if he does as long as he sticks to the one cut and go style like he did late in the season.

Leaders in rushing yards under Pruitt:

2019 - 655 (Chandler)
2018 - 630 (Chandler)

Carries in 2019 were split 135 for Chandler, 104 for Jordan, and 101 for Gray. In 2018, Jordan had 132 carries, and Chandler had 115. Barring some dramatic change in either strategy or performance, we are highly unlikely to see anyone get 1,000 yards. I expect improvement, but I doubt it'll be enough to get anyone to 1,000. If the trend of having around 130 carries at most continues then we'd need someone to average almost 7.5 yards per carry to reach 1,000 yards. Chandler led with 5.5 in 2018. Gray led with 5.3 last year. Even if someone were to get to 150 carries then he would still need to average over 6.6 yards per carry to reach 1,000 yards. 700-800 yards is the most reasonable expectation in my opinion.

With the road pavers we have up front in 2020, it is highly likely that we have a rb top the 1,000 mark. IMO Gray has the burst and top end speed to be the one. I know the competition was not against the best, but he sure closed out strong against the Dores and Hoosiers.
If rhey load the box, then we have the capability to go over the top, especially with the young talent at wr.
