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 London game
Zay Jones, WR, JAX — Questionable
Impact: He’s been out since Week 2, but may finally be able to return to action. Even if active, he’s a risky fantasy play.
1 p.m. ET games
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.
Jonathan Taylor, RB, IND — Activated from PUP list
Impact: Expected to play, but may be kept to a snap count in order to help ease him back into action.
Rhamondre Stevenson, RB, NE — Questionable
Impact: Although he was limited in practice throughout the week, expectations are for him to play.
Derek Carr, QB, NO — Questionable
Impact: His shoulder is clearly still bothering him, but he did play in Week 4. Expect him to at least start this one.
4 p.m. ET games
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 seeing, 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.
