Week 6 inactives: Who’s in and who’s out?

Whom should you start? Whom should you sit? To help you set your fantasy football lineups and avoid starting an offensive player who won’t be in the lineup, we’ll post fantasy-relevant updates and analysis here as NFL teams release their official inactives lists. Any rankings cited in this column come from our ESPN Fantasy staff ranks.

Official Sunday inactives should begin coming in approximately 90 minutes prior to the scheduled kickoff times: around 8 a.m. ET for the London game, 11:30 a.m. ET for the early games and 2:30 p.m. ET for the late-afternoon games.

Refresh often for the latest information.

9:30 a.m. ET

Keaton Mitchell, RB, BALQuestionable
Impact: Practiced all week long in anticipation of joining Justice Hill in backing up Gus Edwards.

Treylon Burks, WR, TENOUT
Impact: Nick Westbrook-Ikhine will get a bump in value, but DeAndre Hopkins is still the better WR option on the Titans.

1 p.m. ET games

Miles Sanders, RB, CAROUT
Impact: Chuba Hubbard should get most of the backfield touches for the Panthers, with Laviska Shenault Jr. perhaps seeing a few gadget plays.

Roschon Johnson, RB, CHIOUT
Impact: With Khalil Herbert (ankle) now on IR, D’Onta Foreman gets a chance ot handle lead-back duties.

Travis Homer, RB, CHIOUT
Impact: A lost chance to get some touches for Homer. Darrynton Evans will back up Foreman.

Tee Higgins, WR, CINQuestionable
Impact: He’s likely to be a game-time call and the Bengals have a bye on tap in Week 7. With that in mind, if he does end up being active, he’s likely to be close to 100%.

Deshaun Watson, QB, CLEOUT
Impact: PJ Walker will start in Week 6, but we may well see Dorian Thompson-Robinson at some point this week, or in future weeks should Walker struggle.

David Njoku, TE, CLEQuestionable
Impact: He did play prior to last week’s bye, but there are still lingering concerns about the burns on his arms and face. That said, the current expectation is that his will be able to play.

Robert Woods, WR, HOUQuestionable
Impact: He practiced some this week, so Woods may well start alongside Nico Collins.

Tank Dell, WR, HOUQuestionable
Impact: Noah Brown has been activated from IR and may take over Dell’s snap share.

Zay Jones, WR, JAXOUT
Impact: The Jaguars will likely rely heavily on the duo of Christian Kirk and Calvin Ridley.

Jeff Wilson Jr., RB, MIADoubtful
Impact: There was talk of him being activated from the IR this week, but it looks like he’s not ready. Salvon Ahmed should once again back up Raheem Mostert.

Juwan Johnson, TE, NOOUT
Impact: Once again, the tandem of Jimmy Graham and Foster Moreau will take his target share.

Elijah Mitchell, RB, SFQuestionable
Impact: Jordan Mason is in line for backup touches if Mitchell yet again sits out.

4 p.m. ET games

Marquise Brown, WR, ARIQuestionable
Impact: Although he’s been dealing with an illness this week, he was still able to practice. Signs point to a Sunday start.

Sam LaPorta, TE, DETQuestionable
Impact: He practiced on Friday and says he’s looking forward to playing on Sunday.

Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, DETOUT
Impact: David Montgomery will likely handle close to 20 touches in the Detroit backfield.

JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, NEOUT
Impact: Tyquan Thornton was activated from IR to join the huddle in 3-WR sets.

Sunday night game

Dawson Knox, TE, BUFQuestionable
Impact: He practiced in limited fashion all week and is trned ing towards a start, which is good news as…

Dalton Kincaid, TE, BUFQuestionable
Impact: …Kincaid has yet to clear the league’s concussion protocol, so his Sunday is currently on hold.

Daniel Jones, QB, NYGOUT
Impact: Tyrod Taylor is under center for the Giants this week, so temper your expectations.

Saquon Barkley, RB, NYGQuestionable
Impact: He’s been practicing this week and appears to finally be ready to return to action.

Darren Waller, TE, NYGQuestionable
Impact: Assuming he plays, he may well end up being Taylor’s favorite target.
