Some Semifinals Questions I Expect To See This Week:

• Do I start Alvin Kamara or Saquon Barkley?
I started Bilal Powell instead of Barkley this week, and it was a wash. In my opinion, you can certainly sit Barkley. Play Kamara in a PPR league, but in a standard league, hey, do what you have to do.

• What is up with Aaron Rodgers? 
He has been so inconsistent! Hate the matchup this week (Bears), but he is Aaron freaking Rodgers! All the same, I can start Ryan Tannehill over him.

• Who do I start at tight end? 
Start Travis Kelce, Zach Ertz, George Kittle, Mark Andrews (if he plays), Hunter Henry, Darren Waller and Austin Hooper. Other than that, put them in a hat and draw names.

• Can I trust DeVante Parker and Courtland Sutton?
Well, if you have them and are still alive, congrats! They sunk me in a few leagues. But the answer is yes. Do not let one week cloud everything — start who brung ya!
