Who should you start with? Who should you sit on? To help you set your fantasy football lineups and avoid using an offensive player who won’t be in the lineup, we’ll be posting fantasy-related updates and analysis here as NFL teams release their official inactive lists . All rankings quoted in this column come from us ESPN Fantasy Staff Rankings.
Official inactive players on Sunday should arrive approximately 90 minutes before the scheduled kickoff times: approximately 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.
Update regularly to get the latest information.
9:30 a.m. ET London game
Zay JonesWR, JAX — Questionable
Impact: He has been out since week 2 but may finally be able to return to action. Even when active, it’s a risky fantasy piece.
Play at 1 p.m. ET
Amon-Ra St. BrownWR, DET — Doubtful
Effects: Josh Reynolds And Caliph Raymond will likely start at WR for the Lions, although Reynolds is questionable with a groin injury. Jameson Williams can also be pushed into action, although his conditioning (or rather lack thereof following his suspension) limits his snaps.
Jonathan TaylorRB, IND — Activated from the PUP list
Impact: He is expected to play, but he may only get a quick count to help get him back into action.
Rhamondre StevensonRB, NE — Questionable
Impact: Despite having limited practice all week, he is expected to play.
Derek CarrQB, NO — Questionable
Impact: His shoulder is obviously still bothering him, but he played in Week 4. Expect him to start at least this week.
4 p.m. ET games
Javonte WilliamsRB, DEN — Questionable
Impact: Although he says he’s doing well, a hip injury doesn’t bode well for playing time. He is a game time crier. Jaleel McLaughlin could be given the opportunity to take on lead-back duties.
Rashaad PennyRB, PHI — Doubtful
Impact: He’s been a healthy inactive several times this season, the fact that he’s dealing with an illness just gives Philadelphia a real reason to play this time around.
