Top Returning RB’s Class 2A

I am picking my Top Returning RB’s based on last year’s stats and team finishes.  If your team has a new starting RB it will be hard to judge but halfway through the year I may update this list.  The bottom 5 RB’s are from teams that could use improved RB play or RB’s who could have break out year.  Looking at last year’s list only 2 running backs return that were on the Top 15 List (Nick Wellen and Darius Richards).
