Who should you start? Whom should you sit? To help you identify your fantasy football rosters and avoid launching a player who won’t be on the roster, we’ll be posting fantasy-related updates and analysis here when NFL teams release their official inactive rosters. Any ratings shown in this column are from our Sportzshala Fantasy employee ranks.
Official Inactive Sundays should begin arriving approximately 90 minutes prior to scheduled game start times, including approximately 11:30 AM ET for early games and 2:30 PM ET for late games.
Update frequently for the latest information.
4:00 pm ET game time
Ja’Marr Chase, WR, CIN: Hip — OUTSIDE
Consequence: Tyler Boyd will continue to start alongside Tee Higgins.
Ezekiel Elliott, RB, DAL: Knee — Doubtful
Impact: Even though Elliot has to play, it can be reduced to help him get back to work.
Jerry Judy, WR, DEN: Ankle — OUTSIDE
Impact: Cortland Sutton should be the target of most of the team’s goals.
KJ Hamler, WR, DEN: Hamstring — OUTSIDE
Impact: Major dice rolls include Jalen Virgil and Montrell Washington.
Kendall Hinton, WR, DEN: Shoulder — Doubtful
Influence: He would be number two on the WR team if he could dress up.
Davante Adams, WR, LV: belly- Doubtful
Impact: With such rare WR depth behind him, there’s a good chance Adams will at least try to play.
Josh Tupow, DT, CIN: Taurus — OUTSIDE
DeMarcus Lawrence, DE, DAL: Sole — Doubtful
Anthony Barr, LB, DAL: Hamstring — Doubtful
Anthony Brown, CB, DAL: Concussion — Doubtful

Sunday evening game
Juju Smith-Shuster, WR, KC: Concussion — OUTSIDE
Influence: Marques Valdez-Scantling and Kadarius Toni would be the Chiefs’ top WR options.
Keenan Allen, WR, LAC: Hamstring — Doubtful
Impact: All signs point to both Allen and Williams returning to action.
Mike Williams, WR, LAC: Ankle — Doubtful
Consequences: If both receivers come back, downgrade DeAndre Carter.
Gerald Everett, TE, LAC: groin — Doubtful
Consequences: Since he was downgraded on Saturday, it would probably make sense to start with someone else this week.
Dustin Hopkins, K, LAC: Hamstring — Doubtful
Consequences: Cameron Dicker should get a chance to play on the jersey again.
13:00 ET game time
Lamar Jackson, QB, BAL: Disease — Active
Consequence: Jackson was always expected to start, despite missing practice at the end of the week.
Gus Edwards, RB, BAL: Hamstring — Inactive
Aftermath: Kenyan Drake kicks off as Edwards has been restricted all week of training.
Mark Andrews, TE, BAL: Shoulder — Active
Impact: Andrews was called up in game time, so Isaiah Likely could still see some game time.
PJ Walker, QB, CAR: Ankle — OUTSIDE
Consequences: Baker Mayfield will start for the Panthers, but probably shouldn’t start for your fantasy team.
David Njoku, TE, CLE: Ankle — Active
Consequence: It should be among the top TE options of the week.
Josh Reynolds, WR, DET: Back — OUTSIDE
Influence: DJ Chark is back from IR, but it may be a while before he becomes fully involved in the Detroit crime scene.
John Woolford, QB, LAR: Neck — Inactive
Aftermath: Matthew Stafford has recovered from his concussion and will return to starting QB work.
DeVante Parker, WR, NE: Knee — Active
Impact: Taikuan Thornton can still see a few additional targets.
Mark Ingram II, RB, NO: Knee — OUTSIDE
Influence: In Saints RB, there is no other option with fantastic value other than Alvin Kamara.
Kenny Golladay, WR, NYG: Hamstring — Active
Influence: Isaiah Hodgins has already surpassed him in the WR Giants depth chart.
Van’Dale Robinson, WR, NYG: Hamstring — Active
Impact: While Robinson is playing, David Sills V is inactive.

Impact: At best, Chris Mayarik could end up with multiple targets.

Impact: Denzel Mims should get a chance to start again.
