Ask the Scramble writers - Week 16!

Championship time! Barring 51 points of stat-corrections, I'll be playing next week, and you might be too. Post your questions here, or hit the mailbag at Scramble -et- FootballOutsiders -dit- com. If you don't, we'll have to analyze whether I should play Dawan Landry or Richard Marshall, and nobody wants that!

which receivers to start

I'm in my league championship for the seventh time in our 15 year history. Unfortunately, I am winless in the championship game. Our scoring is pretty standard, with no points for receptions nor bonus for 100 yd games. Which two receivers to start alongside Megatron? Maclin, Julio Jones, Bowe, Steve Johnson, Cruz? I am leaning towards Maclin and Jones. Thanks, guys.

Week 16 QB question; who to start of the following?

Eli Manning vs Jets
Ben Roethlisberger vs St Louis
Mark Sanchez vs Giants
Rex Grossman vs Minnesota
Josh Freeman vs Carolina

These are my options. Ben is hurt and a huge risk if he plays at all. Eli has the toughest match up. Sanchez kind of stinks (I'm a Jets fan). Grossman has fantastic match up. I'm leaning towards starting Eli. He's the best, healthiest QB option. Also, if he plays like garbage at least that will mean the Jets are (hoepfully) winning. Thoughts?

Need WR Help for championship: Dez Bryant Vs. Phil, L. Robinson Vs. Phil, Santana Moss Vs. Min, Antonion Brown Vs. STL. I need to start 2. I'm leaning towards Brown and Moss based on matchups. Don't trust the Dal guys against Philly. Any advice?
