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
Zay Jones, WR, JAX — Active Impact: He’s been out since Week 2 but is finally able to return to action. Jamal Agnew is also active. Temper fantasy expectations for both.
1 p.m. ET games
Justice Hill, RB, BAL — Questionable Impact: Limited in practice but might see action behind Gus Edwards if he can play.
Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, DET — Doubtful Impact: Josh Reynolds and Kalif Raymond will likely start at WR for the Lions, although Reynolds is questionable with a groin injury.Jameson Williams may also be pressed into action, though his conditioning (or rather, the lack thereof, following his suspension) will limit his snaps.
Javonte Williams, RB, DEN — Questionable Impact: Although he says he feels fine, having a hip injury doesn’t bode well for playing time. He’s a game-time call. Jaleel McLaughlin could be given a chance to handle lead back duties.
Cooper Kupp, WR, LAR — Activated from IR Impact: He’s expected to play without any limitations. Puka Nacua and Tutu Atwell should both see less work than they have been, but not necessarily tons less.
Rashaad Penny, RB, PHI — Doubtful Impact: He’s been a healthy inactive several times this season, so the fact that he’s dealing with an illness simply gives Philadelphia an actual reason this time around.
