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 Germany 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
Alec Pierce, WR, IND — Questionable Impact: Currently, it appears that Pierce will be active for Sunday’s game from Germany.
Josh Downs, WR, IND — Questionable Impact: Expect Isaiah McKenzie to see a lot more action as Downs did not practice all week. If he is active, Downs may be on a “snap count” today.
Demario Douglas, WR, NE — Questionable Impact: He is trending towards playing, but if Kayshon Boutte is (finally) active, there might not be enough targets for Douglas to merit a fantasy start.
Justin Jefferson, WR, MIN — OUT Impact: Although his window to return from IR was set in motion this week, the receiver is clearly not yet ready.
Jaren Hall, QB, MIN — OUT Impact: Joshua Dobbs will start in Week 10 and very likely for many weeks to come. Hall could be Dobbs’ backup down the road once he clears the league’s concussion protocol.
K.J. Osborn, WR, MIN — Questionable Impact: His practice time only increased as the week wore on and he has cleared he league’s concussion protocol. Still, it will likely come down to how he’s feeling this morning.
T.J. Hockenson, TE, MIN — Questionable Impact: All signs point to Hockenson not only playing, but thriving in Week 10.
Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR, DET — Questionable Impact: Still learning the new playbook and with rib issues limiting his practice, it’s unclear if DPJ will dress. However, the Lions may go a bit run-heavy in Week 10 with RB David Montgomery having been given the “all clear” to return.
