Fantasy football Week 9 inactives

Whom should you start? Whom should you sit? To help you set your fantasy football lineups and avoid starting a 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, including around 11:30 a.m. ET for the early games and 2:30 p.m. ET for the late games.

Refresh often for the latest information.

4 p.m. ET games


James Conner, RB, ARI: Ribs — Questionable
Impact: He’ll be a game-time call, with Eno Benjamin tabbed for any extra work should he sit.

Van Jefferson, WR, LAR: Knee — Questionable
Impact: After not getting any targets last week, he’s a very risky play. Ben Skowronek is probably the better fantasy option.

Marquise Goodwin, WR, SEA: Groin — OUT
Impact: Dee Eskridge is expected to move into the No. 3 WR role.

Russell Gage, WR, TB: Hamstring — OUT
Impact: Could this finally be the week that Julio Jones reminds us even a little bit of the kind of player he used to be?

Cameron Brate, TE, TB: Neck — OUT
Impact: Cade Otton continues to make this injury “no big deal at all” to anyone but Brate’s fantasy managers.


Dennis Gardeck, LB, ARI: Ankle — Questionable

Budda Baker, S, ARI: Ankle — Questionable

Darrell Taylor, DE, SEA: Groin — OUT

Akiem Hicks, DE, TB: Foot — Questionable

Antoine Winfield Jr., S, TB: Concussion — OUT

Carlton Davis III, CB, TB: Hip — Questionable

Sunday night game

Ryan Tannehill, QB, TEN: Ankle — Questionable
Impact: He traveled to Kansas City, so odds are good he’s going to try to play. We still may see Malik Willis, though.

Jeffery Simmons, DT, TEN: Ankle — Questionable

Kevin Strong, DE, TEN: Ankle — Questionable

Bud Dupree, LB, TEN: Illness — Questionable

Amani Hooker, S, TEN: Shoulder — OUT

1 p.m. ET games


Chuba Hubbard, RB, CAR: Ankle — OUT
Impact: D’Onta Foreman should once again dominate backfield touches.

Ja’Marr Chase, WR, CIN: Hip — OUT
Impact: Perhaps he’ll be back in Week 11 after the team’s bye.

D’Andre Swift, RB, DET: Ankle — Active
Impact: Another split workload with Jamaal Williams is still on tap, with Williams looking more likely to lead the way.

Josh Reynolds, WR, DET: Back — Inactive
Impact: Kalif Raymond (and to a much lesser degree, Tom Kennedy) will get a chance to shine.

Brock Wright, TE, DET: Concussion — Active
Impact: Either Wright or James Mitchell will have to fill the large shoes of the traded T.J. Hockenson.

Allen Lazard, WR, GB: Shoulder — Active
Impact: He was a game-time call, so factor that into your lineup decisions.

Christian Watson, WR, GB: Concussion — Active
Impact: He’s had a few practices this week and could be a sneaky flex play.

Matt Ryan, QB, IND: Shoulder — OUT
Impact: Sam Ehlinger is still trying to prove he deserved to continue to be the starter once Ryan is healthy.

Jonathan Taylor, RB, IND: Ankle — OUT
Impact: Deon Jackson will head a backfield “conglomerate” that now includes Phillip Lindsay and Jordan Wilkins.

Zack Moss, RB, IND: Team decision — Inactive
Impact: The very newly acquired back has not enough time to get up to speed on the playbook.

Keenan Allen, WR, LAC: Hamstring — OUT
Impact: Joshua Palmer will be the team’s No. 1 WR this week.

Mike Williams, WR, LAC: Ankle — OUT
Impact: Michael Bandy and Jason Moore Jr. could see some targets.

Donald Parham Jr., TE, LAC: Hamstring — OUT/IR
Impact: Gerald Everett‘s fantasy value skyrockets.

Dustin Hopkins, K, LAC: Hamstring — OUT
Impact: Cameron Dicker was added from the practice squad as Taylor Bertolet (quad) is also out.

Darren Waller, TE, LV: Hamstring — Inactive
Impact: Foster Moreau, as usual, benefits the most from Waller’s absence.

Damien Harris, RB, NE: Illness — Inactive
Impact: Rhamondre Stevenson is already getting No. 1 RB touches.

Pierre Strong Jr., RB, NE: Hamstring — Active
Impact: There might be some “shot in the dark” value here.

DeVante Parker, WR, NE: Knee — OUT
Impact: Kendrick Bourne and Nelson Agholor should step into greater offensive roles.

James Robinson, RB, NYJ: Knee — Active
Impact: Michael Carter should still have more fantasy value.

Corey Davis, WR, NYJ: Knee — OUT
Impact: Denzel Mims fans — you know who you are — rejoice!
