Madden 20 has put a lot of emphasis on running the ball, and there are a number of MUT Solo Challenges that require you to pick up big chunks of yards on the ground.
However, the very best half back cards are well out of reach for most players. Sure, you can earn a couple of elite cards if you ace some of the longer missions, but for such an important position it can be hard to pick up a top-level running back this year.
That is where bargain hunting comes in.
There are some very good cards that can get you 85% of the production of a 90+ OVR card at a fraction of the cost.

His acceleration (87) and juke move (86) will make a lot of defenders miss, but with just 72 trucking and 80 carrying be sure to avoid too many runs up the middle with him.

He is a little overpriced for what he can do on the field, but if you are putting together a Chiefs-centric team or like to run to the outside and throw to the back he is a good option.
Marcus Allen, Legends (85 OVR)
Team Chemistry: Oakland Raiders
Best Stats: Speed (83), Agility (83), Spin Move (83), Carrying (82)
Auction House Cost: 23,100 coins
If you want a bit more force in your backfield then Marcus Allen’s 85 OVR Legends card is a good one to use.
He has enough speed (83) to make yards, and the carrying (82) and trucking (78) to make some yards up the middle too. If you like to grind your opponents down and chew clock then Allen is a good back to use.
Gale Sayers, Legends (85 OVR)
Team Chemistry: Chicago Bears
Best Stats: Juke Move (84), Elusiveness (84), Break Tackle (83), Speed (83)
Auction House Cost: 24,000 coins
If frustrating defenses with broken tackles is your favorite thing to do then the 85 OVR Gale Sayers Legends card is a perfect one to use on a budget.

With 84 juke move, 84 elusiveness, and 83 break tackle, he is tough for even higher OVR defenders to bring down. He isn’t much of a threat up the middle or as a receiver, but once the ball is in his hands Sayers can do a lot of damage.
Josh Jacobs, TOTW (85 OVR)
Team Chemistry: Oakland Raiders
Best Stats: Carrying (87), Acceleration (87), Trucking (82), Break Tackle (82), Speed (82)
Auction House Cost: 21,900 coins
Josh Jacobs may well end up winning Offensive Rookie of the Year this season, but until then you’ll have to use this TOTW card to get the best out of him.
Jacobs is a bruiser, with 87 carrying and 82 trucking, but his 87 acceleration will let him pick up first downs and extra yards whenever there is space.
