For now, Brandon Jacobs. At the very least, he'll pass protect and receive goal line carries (leading to short TD's). He apparently knows most of the playbook already.
However, with Ballard done and Bradshaw made of glass, you may find yourself picking up Donald Brown in a couple weeks. He's serviceable as bench RB depth.

Gore despite the matchup.
Bradshaw is a nice Flex option with Ballard out. But he must prove to Pagano that he can handle Ballard's missed pass protection. I see Luck throwing a lot this weekend against Miami.

I'm leaning forward super sleeper marlon brown since jacoby jones is out and Haden will cover Torrey smith
I still prefer Jennings despite Ponder being terrible. He wasn't completely made by Aaron Rodgers. So Jennings over Brown, who is more valuable in deeper leagues (think 14-16 teams).
Andre Roberts or Fred Jackson? Roberts. Fitz is battling a bad hammy. Roberts and Floyd will benefit, especially if Housler can't go. PP might even gets reps at receiver. That's how thin Arizona is at the position.
Freddy had a solid W1 showing, but CJ's still the man. Marrone seemed to trust Manuel throwing the football quite a bit in the hurry up, no huddle offense. Carolina's front seven is super stout against the run, exhibited against Beast Mode.
In order: Roberts (if Fitz doesn't play), Jennings, Brown, Jackson. For Week 2.

Cameron, Thomas, Gates. Gates is a shadow of his former self, Rivers isn't trustworthy. Thomas' performance in the opener is a fluke until proven otherwise. Defenses saw the tape on him. Baltimore got hit with the shock factor, and Peyton spreads the wealth.
Cameron was my sleeper TE stud. Chud and Norv will get him the football consistently. Gordon's out another game. Weeden has no other weapons.
