Which NFL Running Back Returning from IR Will Be Most Productive?

The 2011 season turned into the year of IR for the elite running back.  On Friday, Total Access on NFL Network took a poll asking fans to vote for which running back returning from the IR they expected to have the best season.  The options to choose from were Jamaal Charles, Darren McFadden, Adrian Peterson and Matt Forte.  

I'm not sure how many people were thinking what I was thinking when I saw that poll, but where was Fred Jackson in those choices?  Apparently, the fact that he was leading the league in rushing before he went down with a broken fibula wasn't enough of a reason to consider him capable of being as productive as any of those other four running backs.  

Since I didn't agree with the options given, or results of the poll, I decided that I would write my own article on this topic.  I hope you enjoy my thoughts as much as I do.
