Fantasy football Week 5 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.
