Ask the Scramble writers - Week 17!

It's the final week of the NFL regular season, and your fantasy league may still be going on! If it is, your Scramble writers recommend that you find a different league to play in next year, one that doesn't include the oft-unpredictable and pointless final week. If you are still playing, though, your Scramble writers are here to help! Post your questions below or hit the mailbag at Scramble -et- FootballOutsiders -dit- com.

Due to Wednesday afternoon post time, questions in this thread submitted by Tuesday evening are the ones that get answered in the column. If you have a question after that time, hit the mailbag address or use the column comments section.

I have made it to my league's final game, and have some questions about starters this week:

I start 2 RBS, and have Mendenhall, Hillis, LT, Shonn Greene, and Woodhead. I've been starting Mendenhall and Hillis, although have some concerns about Hillis at this point, and was thinking about making Greene my number 2.

Desean Jackson has been one of my wrs - should I still start him, or go with someone else because of injuries. My other starters have been Bowe and Williams from TB. After that I have Ward, the other Williams, and Hester.

On defense, I have Arizona and Baltimore. I have consistently chosen wrong on them, although I am leaning towards using Arizona this week. Your thoughts?

I have Shaun Hill going against Minnesota on a short week. Everyone seems to have him ranked low. I don't see why. He is putting up great points in every game he plays in. Does someone know something I don't? Bradford is also available, as well as the other usual suspects, Trent Edwards, Kolb, Smith, Tebow, Skelton, McGee. Anyone have any idea why they are all ranked ahead of Hill?
