Ask the Scramble writers - Week 12!

Scramble for the Ball needs your fantasy football questions! Start/sit, waiver wire decisions, whatever. For those of you eliminated from the playoffs already (like I am in one of my leagues), feel free to ask football non-fantasy questions, too, and we might answer them.

PPR league, who to start at Flex?

Brandon Jacobs vs DEN (Bradshaw might be out)
or
Roddy White vs TB

My other starters are:
Brady, MJD, Benson, Colston, Wayne, Welker, Clark.

No PPR, need to start 2RB, 2WR, 1RB/WR. Currently in 3rd, playing
against the 2nd team and a win puts me ahead of him.

Starting DeAngelo @ NYJ

Then have
Mendenhall @ Bal, Snelling @ TB, Maroney @ NO, Wells @ Ten
(lots of waiver pickups when Ronnie and Clinton went down)

S. Rice @ Chi, Ocho @ Cle, Housh @ Stl, Austin @ Oak

My thoughts:
Snelling seems obvious given the matchup. Maroney would be a good matchup
based on run DVOA, but will the Pats use him? Wells against Ten is a good
matchup even if he does split with Hightower. Housh had that huge week
against Ari and STL isn't good against any receiver.

Non-PPR 2RB, 2WR, 1 Flex

After a raft of injuries, I have the following "pu pu platter" to go with Thomas Jones at RB: Forte (@Min), Jamaal Charles (@SD), Chest Rockwell Cartwright (@Phi), or Bernard Scott (vsCle). Obviously, the waiver wire been berry berry goods to me.

First question...who do you like at RB2? Second question, would anybody else be worth a look at flex over one of Hines Ward (@Bal), Crabtree (vsJax), or Burleson (@StL)? I can't see it, unless Benson is out...
