...Derrick Green takes the field for the first snap against Central, and leads the team in carries.

Doubtful. But wouldn't surprise me.
If yes, is it because he living up to his billing or is the best of weak options? Hopefully the first.
No to the first part, yes to the second. I don't think Green will start from day 1, but he will eventually win the job IMO.

No. He will later in the year, though.
I don't entirely agree with the: "no, but later in the year" argument. I think it is much more likely that he gets a lot of playing time in the the weak non-conference schedule to prepare for the conference schedule.
It seems that RB and WR are the positions where playing time as a freshman can come easiest. As it is I think the rest of the RBs on the roster won't provide too much of a challenge, minus Fitz but I expect him to still be not fully up to speed following his rehab so Green can still beat him.

anyone think fitz could get a medical redshirt next year?
Nah, just a broken leg. Should be fine before next year.
Fitz does but the Green takes over.
