We need a thread specifically for these types of questions, so I've pulled one from the other thread to kick off the party for this year.

I have had a pretty high success rates just going off matchups. Greene has the toughest matchup there against Baltimore. Cleve, Miami and Arizona all have pretty weak matchups Tampa, Buffalo and St Louis respectivelly.

With hightower, in Beanie Wells gets out hot, which he might, he could see less action then normal. On the flip side, Arizona could be pretty weak at the QB spot this year, so might run a ton.

I dunno, I think I go with Brown/Hightower but I dont feel great about it.

I actually like Arian Foster as a sleeper over Stewart. Stewart's got a subpar QB in Matt Moore or a rookie QB in Jimmy Clausen in front of him. Does that mean he and Williams will get a lot of carries? Yeah, Panthers always run the ball but Foster is in a high-octane offense a la Joseph Addai. Schaub will throw more TDs than Moore/Clausen but will have the Texans in far more red zone opportunities and they do utilize the RB out of the backfield.

I'd probably switch between the two dependent on the defense they're facing.

I have a 3 RB flex spot I think is an easy call, but I'll throw it out there

Matt Forte or Marion Barber (Im already starting MJD and CedBen, standard Yahoo scoring)

Week 1, I'd have to start Forte. Outside of Suh, Detroit's defense is still a siv. What Suh might negate in rushing, Forte will make up for in receiving yards. I think that's likely to be a 28-27, 35-27 type game.

Forte, especially if it's a PPR league. He's a 3 down back. Fantasy football really comes down to number of touches. He'll be on the field longer. That said, I envision the Redskins defense to be easy to run on this year, due to the continued saga on the defensive line. But Felix Jones and Tashard Choice are going to combine for at least 50% of the offensive snaps, if not more.
