Ask the Scramble writers - Week 15!

Playoffs? You want to talk about the play-offs? The fantasy playoffs? Well, it is that time of year, and time for you to start Adrian Peterson and go down in flames or start Darren McFadden and go on to fortune and glory. Your Scramble writers are here to help you make your key start/sit decisions as they try to achieve their own fame and/or glory. Post your questions below, or hit the emailbag at Scramble -et- FootballOutsiders -dit- com.

im coming off a bye week into playoffs and i have basically 2 positions in doubt with 3 ppl to fill them. Vincent jackson, Sydney rice and Jason witten. im pretty solid on Jackson but witten or rice seem to be a toss up. you either have witten going against the skins, good against the TE and its a divisional game or a Vikings team with a problem at QB up against the bears which will be played who knows where. on a side, should i go with matt ryan or jon kitna this week?

Ok guys, won my first round game at the last possible second (Andre Johnson's TD put me up by less than a point). Thanks for the help. Tolbert was worth much more than Stevie Johnson. Only big miss was Hines Ward who was my #2 scorer but was on the bench - no one could have called that.

This week I've got a few open questions:

QB:
Roethlisberger vs NYJ
Orton vs OAK
or
Kerry Collins vs HOU off the waiver wire

Scoring is 6 pts for a TD and a 4 point bonus for 300+ yds.

TE:
Boss vs PHI
A Hernandez vs GB
or
waiver claim on Owen Daniels (might not get him) vs TEN
or
waiver claim on Kellen Winslow (will almost certainly get him) vs DET

.5 PPR. 4 point bonus for 100+ yards.

Def:

KC vs STL
waiver wire choices:
Carolina, Arizona and Dallas

Scoring is points for yards allowed, points for points allowed and points for DTD, INT, sacks, fumbles recovered.

A defense that holds down the yards and points does better than one that causes turn overs but gives up points.

Thanks in advance guys! Hope to be asking your advice again for the finals.
