I've got one:
Felix Jones against Tampa, or Darren McFadden against San Diego.
Wow, thats a good one. McFadden should be the #1, but Oakland isnt the best team offensively, and is going against a pretty dang good defense. San Diego was 11th last season against the run.
Felix is the #2 explosive change of pace back. Tampa was 19th against the run last season.
It really is a coin toss. As a change of pace back, what can you expect? 50-70 yards and a TD? I would expect at least 70 yards and a TD from McFadden.
I would go with the #1 RB even for a below average team, over a #2 RB for a above average team. Hope this helps.
