Who to start? Who should you sit on? To help you finalize your fantasy football rosters and avoid starting a player who won’t be in the roster, we post fantasy-related updates and analysis here when NFL teams update their official inactive player lists publish. All rankings quoted in this column are from our ESPN Fantasy staff.
Sunday official inactives should begin approximately 90 minutes before scheduled kickoff times, including approximately 11:30am ET for early games and 2:30pm ET for late games.
Update frequently for the latest information.
4 p.m. ET games
Ja’Marr Chase, WR, CIN: Hips — OUT
Impact: Tyler Boyd will continue to start opposite Tee Higgins.
Ezekiel Elliott, RB, DAL: Knee — active
Impact: While he’s playing, Elliott’s workload can be kept light to help him get back into things.
Jerry Jeudy, WR, DEN: ankles — OUT
Impact: Courtland Sutton should be the recipient of most of the team’s targets.
KJ Hamler, WR, DEN: Achilles tendon — OUT
Impact: Big dice rolls include Jalen Virgil and Montrell Washington.
Kendall Hinton, WR, DEN: shoulder — active
Impact: He could very well be the team’s #2 WR today.
Davante Adams, WR, LV: Belly — active
Impact: With such sparse WR depth behind him, we fully expected Adams to at least try to play.
Josh Tupou, DT, CIN: Calf — OUT
DeMarcus Lawrence, DE, DAL: Foot — active
Anthony Barr, LB, DAL: Achilles tendon — Inactive
Anthony Brown, CB, DAL: concussion — active

game on Sunday night
JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, KC: concussion — OUT
Impact: Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Kadarius Toney will be the Chiefs’ top WR options.
Keenan Allen, WR, LAC: Achilles tendon — Questionable
Impact: All signs point to a return to action for Allen and Williams.
Mike Williams, WR, LAC: ankles — Questionable
Impact: Assuming both recipients return, demote DeAndre Carter.
Gerald Everett, TE, LA: Strip — Questionable
Impact: Since he was a Saturday downgrade, it’s probably wise to start someone else this week.
Dustin Hopkins, K., LA: Achilles tendon — Doubtful
Impact: Cameron Dicker should get another chance to “occupy the tee”.
1 p.m. ET games
Lamar Jackson, QB, BAL: Illness — active
Impact: Jackson was always expected to start despite not having a practice session at the end of the week.
Gus Edwards, RB, BAL: Achilles tendon — Inactive
Impact: Kenya’s Drake will start as Edwards was restricted all week of training.
Mark Andrews, TE, BAL: shoulder — active
Impact: Andrews was a playtime call, so Isaiah Likely could still see some playtime.

Impact: Baker Mayfield will start for the Panthers, but probably shouldn’t start for your fantasy team.
David Njoku, TE, CLE: ankles — active
Impact: Should be among the best TE options of the week.

Impact: DJ Chark is back from IR, but it may be some time before he fully commits to Detroit’s offense.
John Wolford, QB, LAR: neck — Inactive
Impact: Matthew Stafford is back from his concussion and will return to the starting QB job.
DeVante Parker, WR, NE: Knee — active
Effects: Tyquan Thornton may see a few additional targets.
