Whom should you start? Whom 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 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 times, including 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.

Gabe Davis, WR, BUF: Ankle — Questionable
Impact: All signs point to Davis getting his typical workload.
Hayden Hurst, TE, CIN: Groin — Questionable
Impact: It’s a good matchup for Hurst, so hopefully he’ll be able to start.
T.J. Hockenson, TE, DET: Hip — Questionable
Impact: Limited practices all week, but nothing suggests he won’t play today.
Pharaoh Brown, TE, HOU: Shoulder — OUT
