Fantasy football Week 3 inactives

Who to start? Who should you sit on? To help you finalize your fantasy football lineups and avoid starting a player who won’t be in the lineup, we post fantasy-related updates and analysis here when NFL teams update their official inactive player lists publish, usually around 90 minutes before kick-off. 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.

1 p.m. ET games


JK Dobbins, RB, BAL: Knee — Questionable
Impact: Finally, it’s expected to make its debut in 2022.

Isaiah Likely, TE, BAL: Strip — Questionable
Impact: Didn’t miss a full day of practice so he might dress up.

Gabe Davis, WR, BUF: ankles — Questionable
Impact: All signs point to Davis getting his typical workload.

Dawson Knox, TE, BUF: Foot — Questionable
Impact: Tommy Sweeney could be pushed into action.

Velus Jones Jr., WR, CHI: Achilles tendon — Doubtful
Impact: Good news for Dante Pettis and Equanimeous St. Brown.

Ryan Griffin, TE, CHI: Achilles– OUT
Impact: Cole Kmet will get another chance to prove he deserves to be in fantasy formations.

Hayden Hurst, TE, CIN: Strip — Questionable
Impact: It’s a good matchup for Hurst so hopefully he’ll start.

D’Andre Swift, RB, DET: ankles — Questionable
Impact: Jamaal Williams will still get his share of touches, but Swift should start.

TJ Hockenson, TE, DET: Hips — Questionable
Impact: Limited training sessions throughout the week but nothing to suggest he won’t play today.

Brevin Jordan, TE, HOU: ankles — OUT
Impact: OJ Howard, who scored in Week 1, should start…

Pharaoh Brown, TE, HOU: shoulder — OUT
Effect: … because Brown cannot play on Sunday either.

Harrison Butker, K, KC: ankles — OUT
Impact: Matt Ammendola handles kicking duties.

Josh Jacobs, RB, LV: Illness — Questionable
Impact: He traveled to Tennessee on Saturday, which is a solid sign he plans to play.

Hunter Renfrow, WR, LV: concussion — OUT
Impact: Foster Moreau could be a surprise artist.

Cedrick Wilson Jr., WR, MIA: ribs — Questionable
Impact: It looks like a game call.

Jakobi Meyers, WR, NE: Knee — Questionable
Impact: Practiced a bit on Friday but will probably sit this one out. Then Kendrick Bourne or Lil’Jordan might surprise Humphrey.

Jameis Winston, QB, NO: The back — Questionable
Impact: He could very well start with the word that his injury “can’t get any worse” from playing.

Alvin Kamara, RB, NO: ribs — Questionable
Impact: He was reportedly close to playing last week, so we’re assuming he’ll try.

Taysom Hill, TE, NO: ribs — Questionable
Impact: Even if he plays for the Saints, starting in fantasy is always a big risk for him.

Zach Wilson, QB, NYJ: Knee — OUT
Impact: Maybe next week for Wilson? Until then, Joe Flacco remains the man.

Corey Davis, WR, NYJ: Knee — Questionable
Impact: Expects to join Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore in the Jets’ huddle.

CJ Uzomah, TE, NYJ: Achilles tendon — Questionable
Impact: Tends to see him on the field, but he’ll likely share goals with Tyler Conklin.

4 p.m. ET games


James Conner, RB, ARI: ankles — Questionable
Impact: It looks like a game time call. Eno Benjamin and Darrel Williams would likely share carries if Conner was sitting.

Rondale Moore, WR, ARI: Achilles tendon — OUT
Influence: “Greg: The Greg Dortch Story” gets at least one more episode.

Randall Cobb, WR, UK: Illness — Questionable
Impact: Allen Lazard and Romeo Doubs would get more stares if he can’t play.

Christian Watson, WR, UK: Achilles tendon — Questionable
Impact: With Sammy Watkins now on IR, here’s an opportunity to take. However, it looks like it could pass Watson.

Marcedes Lewis, TE, UK: Strip — Questionable
Impact: Even if Lewis plays, the timeshare with Robert Tonyan limits both.

Justin Herbert, QB, LAC: ribs — Questionable
Impact: It certainly seems likely that Chase Daniel will see some action below center – if not all.

Keenan Allen, WR, LAC: Achilles tendon — Questionable
Impact: Limited in practice. Also, the threat of playing with a backup QB certainly doesn’t add to his fantasy value this week.

Donald Parham Jr., TE, LA: Achilles tendon — Questionable
Impact: Currently, Gerald Everett still looks like the best TE option on the team.

Van Jefferson, WR, LAR: Knee — OFF/IR
Impact: Ben Skowronek should see a consistent target percentage at WR3 level.

Leonard Fournette, RB, TB: Achilles tendon — Questionable
Impact: With so much uncertainty in the WR space, one can only hope that Fournette is willing to take on a full RB workload.

Chris Godwin, WR, TB: Achilles tendon — OUT
Impact: Mike Evans is suspended so newly signed Cole Beasley could be a factor.

Julio Jones, WR, TB: Knee — Questionable
Impact: Since he’s invoked during gameplay, have other options ready.

Breshad Perriman, WR, TB: Knee — Questionable
Impact: If he can play, he can be the team’s WR1 by default.

Russell Gage, WR, TB: Achilles tendon — Questionable
Impact: After not training on Friday, his situation on Sunday is pretty grim.


Shaquill Griffin, CB, JAX: Hips — Questionable

JC Jackson, CB, LAC: ankles — Doubtful

David Long Jr., CB, LAR: Strip — OUT

Cobie Durant, CB, LAR: Achilles tendon — OUT

Shelby Harris, DE, SEA: Personally — OUT

Justin Coleman, CB, SEA: Calf — Doubtful

Quandre Diggs, S, SEA: Knee — Questionable

Akiem Hicks, DE, TB: Foot — OUT

game on Sunday night

Tyrion Davis-Price, RB, SF: ankles — OUT
Impact: Jeff Wilson Jr. will handle most of the RB workload while Jordan Mason stands by.

Tyler Kroft, TE, SF: Knee — OUT
Impact: George Kittle seems to be good (finally), so the 49ers seem to be at the bottom.

Arik Armstead, DT, SF: Foot — Questionable

Jerry Jeudy, WR, DEN: ribs — Questionable
Impact: Seems likely that he will attempt to play. However, given the kick-off time, you might not want to risk it.

KJ Hamler, WR, DEN: Knee — Questionable
Impact: See comments above for Jeudy, Jerry.

Dre’Mont Jones, DE, DEN: neck — Questionable

Josey Jewell, LB, DEN: Calf — Questionable
