Ask the Scramble writers - Week 15!

Scramble for the Ball needs your fantasy football questions! It's playoff time so the right start/sit decision or waiver wire pickup could make the difference between lording it over your annoying brother-in-law this holiday season or having him lord it over you, and your Scramble writers are here to help! Post your questions in the comments here or hit the mailbag at Scramble -et- FootballOutsiders -dit- com.

Due to Wednesday afternoon post time, questions need to be posted here by Tuesday evening or submitted by email mid-morning Wednesday to get answered in the column. After that time, hit the mailbag or post in Scramble's comments section once it goes up. Please also note Scramble's mailbag feature is separate from and in addition to the FO Premium fantasy start/sit service; if you're looking for that, please use that contact info on the Premium page, but feel free to ask us your question as well. We're not picky!

Disclosure: I am not, and have never been, in any fantasy leagues with my brother-in-law, who is also not annoying.

Here's PLENTY of lineup calls to chew on! My team has been smashed by injuries in the last few weeks (Vick, McGahee, Gronkowski, Amendola, now Bryant and injuries on Chicago D). Here's a summary of my dilemmas for this week - obviously some of the guys I'm listing are the best free agents available, I put stars next to the guys I own. FYI, it's a 12 team PPR league, only quirk is 1 pt per 25 return yards, starts 2RBs+2WRs+1Flex+1 of everything else... I'm going to be the underdog for sure, so guys with the higher risk/upside will probably be preferred if it's a close call. It'd be great if you can pick me out some diamonds!

1 of these QBs: Stafford(*) @ ARZ, R.Wilson(*) @ BUF

2 or 3 of these RBs: S.Greene(*) or B.Powell(*) @ TEN, P.Thomas(*) or M.Ingram vs TB, M.Owens(*) @ MIA, A.Green(*) @ CHI, R.Turbin @ BUF, M.Hardesty vs WAS, L.James @ NE, B.Pierce vs DEN. Looking to get David Wilson on waivers as another option (he's @ ATL).

2 or 3 of these WRs: D.Bryant(*) vs PIT, P.Garcon(*) @ CLE, J.Maclin or J.Avant vs CIN (Maclin would be another waiver option), C.Givens or B.Gibson or D.Amendola(*) vs MIN, B.Hartline(*) or D.Bess vs JAX, R.Streater Vs KC, A.Hawkins @ PHI, D.Avery @ HOU, J.Kerley @ TEN

1 of these TEs: D.Clark(*) @ NO, B.Watson vs WAS, J.Tamme @ BAL, T.Moeaki @ OAK, R.Housler vs DET, S.Chandler vs SEA, L.Kendricks vs MIN, T.Scheffler @ ARZ

1 of these Ds: Chicago(*) vs GB, Detroit @ ARZ, Miami vs JAX, Tennessee vs NYJ, St. Louis vs MIN
