Potential 2016 Running Back Fantasy Busts

It is difficult to identify these players because sometimes their downfall is due to an injury to them or an injury to a key teammate that directly affects their fantasy production. No one can accurately project injuries or which players could be a potential bust, but there are some criteria you can review to try and identify players who could potentially be disappointing.
