Whom should you start? Who 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 inactive lists. Any rankings cited in this column come from our ESPN Fantasy staff ranks.
Official Sunday inactives should start arriving in approximately 90 minutes prior to the scheduled kickoff times, including around 11:30 am ET for the early games and 2:30 pm ET for the late games.
Refresh often for the latest information.
4 p.m. ET games
Ja’Marr Chase, WR, CIN: Hip — OUT
Impact: Tyler Boyd will continue to start opposite Tee Higgins.
Ezekiel Elliott, RB, DAL: Knee — Questionable
Impact: While he’s expected to play, Elliott’s workload may be kept light to help ease him back into things.
Jerry Jeudy, WR, DEN: Ankle — OUT
Impact: Courtland Sutton should be the recipient of most of the team’s targets.
KJ Hamler, WR, DEN: Hoarding — OUT
Impact: Big-time rolls of the dice include Jalen Virgil and Montrell Washington.
Kendall Hinton, WR, DEN: Shoulder — Active
Impact: He could well be the team’s No. 2 WR today.
Davante Adams, WR, LV: Abdomen — Active
Impact: With such sparse WR depth behind him, we fully expected that Adams would at least try to play.
Josh Tupou, DT, CIN: Calf — OUT
DeMarcus Lawrence, DE, DAL: Foot — Questionable
Anthony Barr, LB, DAL: Hoarding — Questionable
Anthony Brown, CB, DAL: Concussion — Questionable

Sunday night game
JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, KC: Concussion — OUT
Impact: Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Kadarius Toney will be the Chiefs’ top WR options.
Keenan Allen, WR, LAC: Hoarding — Questionable
Impact: All signs point to a return to action for both Allen and Williams.
Mike Williams, WR, LAC: Ankle — Questionable
Impact: Assuming both receivers do return, downgrade DeAndre Carter.
Gerald Everett, TE, LAC: Groin — Questionable
Impact: As he was a Saturday downgrade, it’s probably wise to start someone else this week.
Dustin Hopkins, K, LAC: Hoarding — Doubtful
Impact: Cameron Dicker should again get a chance to “man the tee.”
1 p.m. ET games
Lamar Jackson, QB, BAL: Illness — Active
Impact: Jackson was always expected to start, despite missing practice late in the week.
Gus Edwards, RB, BAL: Hoarding — Inactive
Impact: Kenyan Drake will start as Edwards had been limited the entire week of practice.
Mark Andrews, TE, BAL: Shoulder — Active
Impact: Andrews was a game-time call, so Isaiah Likely might still see some playing time.

Impact: Baker Mayfield will start for the Panthers but should probably not start for your fantasy team.
David Njoku, TE, CLE: Ankle — Active
Impact: He should be among the top TE options for the week.

Impact: Matthew Stafford is back from his concussion and will return to the starting QB job.
DeVante Parker, WR, NE: Knee — Active
Impact: Tyquan Thornton may still see a few extra targets.
