Whom should you start? Whom 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 Sunday inactives should begin coming in approximately 90 minutes prior to the scheduled kickoff time, 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 Robinson, RB, JAX: Heel — Questionable
Impact: Practiced enough this week that a start seems likely.
Darrell Henderson Jr., RB, LAR: Thigh — Questionable
Impact: Sony Michel stands ready to go if Henderson can’t suit up — and may still get more touches, even if Henderson does play.
Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LAR: Hip — Questionable
Impact: All signs point to Beckham playing on Sunday.
Josh Jacobs, RB, LV: Ankle — Questionable
Impact: Practiced late in the week, so he’s looking very likely to play.

Impact: Missed some practice this week, but seems to be ready to go.
Darren Waller, TE, LV: Knee — OUT

Rashaad Penny, RB, SEA: Hamstring — Questionable
Impact: Apart from Peterson, DeeJay Dallas is the only fully healthy Seattle back.
Travis Homer, RB, SEA: Calf — Questionable
Impact: It’s likely to be a game-time call as to which Seattle backs actually dress.
Trey Sermon, RB, SF: Ankle — OUT/IR
Impact: Elijah Mitchell and Jeff Wilson Jr. will be just fine without him.
Deebo Samuel, WR, SF: Groin — OUT
Impact: Expect some of his targets to go to either Trent Sherfield or Jauan Jennings, but not enough for them to matter.
J.D. McKissic, RB, WAS: Concussion — OUT
Impact: Wendell Smallwood was promoted from the practice squad and could catch a few passes.
Curtis Samuel, WR, WAS: Groin — Questionable

Impact: Even if he can return to the field, Logan Thomas is still ahead of him.
Patrick Queen, LB, BAL: Ribs — Questionable

Kyler Murray, QB, ARI: Ankle — Active
Impact: Sorry, Colt McCoy fans. It looks like Murray will try to get through this one.
DeAndre Hopkins, WR, ARI: Hamstring — Active
Impact: He was a game-time call. Rondale Moore and Christian Kirk due for boosts if he stumbles.
Justin Fields, QB, CHI: Ribs — Inactive
Impact: No surprise as Andy Dalton had already been tabbed to start this one.
Damien Williams, RB, CHI: Calf — OUT
Impact: Khalil Herbert to back up David Montgomery.
Allen Robinson II, WR, CHI: Hamstring — Inactive
Impact: Darnell Mooney likely to be the team’s No. 1 WR this week.
Marquise Goodwin, WR, CHI: Foot — OUT
Impact: Damiere Byrd should see an increase in targets.
Chris Evans, RB, CIN: Ankle — Inactive
Impact: If Joe Mixon needs to be spelled, Samaje Perine is now the likely option.

Adam Shaheen, TE, MIA: Knee — Inactive
Impact: With WR DeVante Parker finally back from IR, Shaheen might not be missed.
Dalvin Cook, RB, MIN: Shoulder — OUT
Impact: Kene Nwangwu is under the weather, so Alexander Mattison might be the lone backfield option.
Daniel Jones, QB, NYG: Neck — OUT
Impact: Mike Glennon makes for an unappealing fantasy quarterback.
Sterling Shepard, WR, NYG: Quad — Inactive
Impact: Kenny Golladay and John Ross will have to step up.
Kadarius Toney, WR, NYG: Quad — Inactive
Impact: Even if New York’s top receivers can play, the loss of QB Jones makes them unappealing for fantasy.
Kyle Rudolph, TE, NYG: Ankle — Active
Impact: Even so, Evan Engram is the preferred Giants TE option.
Corey Davis, WR, NYJ: Groin — Active
Impact: Davis has lost ground to Elijah Moore in the battle for the Jets’ No. 1 WR honors.
