Ask the Scramble writers - Week 14!

It's the last week of the regular season or first week of the playoffs, and it's time to make the crucial start/sit decision or waiver wire pickup that gives your team the top seed or place in the next round, or leaves you at home. Your Scramble writers are here to help. Post your questions below, or hit the emailbag at Scramble -et- FootballOutsiders -dit- com.

*-Due to Wednesday afternoon post time, questions submitted by Tuesday evening are the ones that get answered in the column. I probably won't check this thread after column time Tuesday, so if you want an answer after that hit the email address or post it in the column comments section.

First round of my fantasy playoffs and I've got tons of questions for starts in round 1:

1) QB: Roethlesberger or Orton - scoring is 6 per TD bonus for 300 yards. As of now, I'm leaning towards Ben.

2) RBs / WRs: My league gives .5 ppr for WR / TE (not RB) and a 4 point bonus for 100 ReYds / 100 RuYds. Long TDs are worth 7 points.

My choices (average points per game so far in parens for reference on the scoring system):

Mendenhall (14.7) vs CIN
Tolbert (12.2) vs KC
Forte (14.6) vs NE
R Rice (12.3) vs HOU

A Johnson (17.1) vs BAL
S Johnson (15.0) vs CLE
Breaston (11.0) vs DEN
H Ward (8.9) vs CIN

All positions are flex and I can pick 5 starters.

Thanks guys!
