Who should you start? Who should you sit? To help you set your fantasy football lineups and to avoid starting a player who won’t be playing, we’ll post fantasy-relevant updates and analysis here as NFL teams release their official inactives lists, typically about 90 minutes before kickoff. Any rankings cited in this column come from our ESPN Fantasy staff ranks.
Official inactives should begin coming in approximately 90 minutes prior to the scheduled kickoff time.
Refresh often for the latest information.
Allen Robinson II, WR, CHI: Hamstring — Doubtful
Impact: He hasn’t practiced this week, so odds are against a Thursday start.
Akiem Hicks, DT, CHI: Ankle — OUT
Eddie Jackson, S, CHI: Hamstring — Questionable
Tashaun Gipson Sr., S, CHI: Chest — Questionable
Jared Goff, QB, DET: Oblique — Questionable
Impact: He’s a game-time call, although leaning towards yes. Just leave him out of fantasy lineups and watch the parade in peace.
Jermar Jefferson, RB, DET: Ankle — Questionable
Impact: It’s looking like he will play, but isn’t worth the fantasy gamble.
Michael Brockers, DE, DET: Knee — Questionable
Trey Flowers, LB, DET: Knee — OUT
CeeDee Lamb, WR, DAL: Concussion — Questionable
Impact: Dallas expects Lamb to clear the league’s protocol in time to play.
Alvin Kamara, RB, NO: Knee — OUT
Impact: The lack of practice in this short week was never a good sign.
Marcus Davenport, DE, NO: Shoulder — OUT
