Insulation 15", space 16 1/2"

I am getting ready to insulate a basement room with Kraft-faced R-13 insulation, 2X4 wall construction. There are a few places in the framing where, due to obstructions, etc., the studs are not 16" on center (the distances range from approximately 15 1/2 to 23 inches in places). I would like to know what is the proper way to install the insulation since stapling both sides is out. My instinct is to cut the insulation and insert two pieces so that I can staple sides and just tape the middle seam.
Does this sound right? You guys are gurus of insulation!

Most of the time cut a hunk off the roll to go across or like stud to stud and long so you will have some of the paper or foil to tack too the studs. Or do it like you said ED
