COVID situations, injuries and a devastating Week 15 leave us with at least as many questions as answers heading into the semifinals of the fantasy football playoffs. But answers are our specialty here. How should you approach Thursday Night questions? Who should you play over Patrick Mahomes if Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill don't make it back? Who benefits if Austin Ekeler remains out? Who can you turn to for upside at TE?

Let's hit on all of it.

Cleveland Browns at Green Bay Packers ... 9:41

Indianapolis Colts at Arizona Cardinals ... 13:47
