Attic insulation baffles?


I got some foam baffles from HD to run the 5' in my attic where the insulation touches the sheating on the rafters, above the knee wall to the flat ceiling. Previous thread for more details attic insulation/quick ?.

The only ones HD had was 22" that tear in half to 11", my cavity in between rafters is 14.5". Is this going to be ok that some of the insulation touches the sheating since the baffles aren't 14.5"? I'm going to go ahead and install the baffles and hope this is ok. Just looking for a little re assurance that this will be ok and i won't have any more condensation problems. Thanks

It's OK, Install them in the center of each rafter bay areas.
