With the right cuddle from a good man-manager and an extended run with responsibility in a side, he could go great guns at say Derbys, Gloucs, Northants, Leics, Glammy and even my boys Middx.

I'd hate to see him fade away in Yorks 2nd XI - he won't get any better or regain his confidence unless he plays

Lancashire? Spinning wicket and they could afford to feed him...

He's in the opposite boat to the one James Harris was in earlier this year...

Will have to join a club that will pay him in pennies rather than thousands I feel. As you mention Leics, I'm sure a few good years there and a call up to Notts would be on the cards as soon as Swann takes a comfy spot across from Tufnell on A Question of Sport! Highly doubt he would sink that low though. (Rashid, not Swann)

I think he should take advantage of loans, which are being used a lot more by counties nowadays.

Loans is a good idea - but conversely a settled spinner is better than one constantly trying to prove themselves.

How about Ollie Rayner? He's quite tall...

Sink how low?  Arguably counties like Derby's and Middx have nearly as much to offer as Yorks. They are either winning titles or on the rise - nothing like playing in a winning team for confidence!

Oh, I suspect he'll start the season in the side or miss the first two games at the most - Root will be with England, Bairstow may well be too and Yorkshire's batting reserves are not the best, so I figure he, Rafiq, Bresnan and Pyrah will be four of six bowlers to bolster the batting.

Rashid starts and bats at 7 for Yorkshire against Leeds MCCU, with Rafiq at 6, looks like you were spot on!

Be surprised if they don't swap spots by the time it comes to the match itself.
