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 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 at approximately 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.


1 p.m. ET games

Offense

Russell Gage, WR, ATL: Ankle — OUT


Impact: Olamide Zaccheaus should continue to see increased action in the slot.

Impact: Chuba Hubbard and Royce Freeman will attempt to fill his very large shoes.

Andy Dalton, QB, CHI: Knee — Doubtful


Impact: Justin Fields has already been announced as the Week 4 starter.

Darnell Mooney, WR, CHI: Groin — Questionable


Impact: As he played through this same injury last week, expect him on the field today.

Impact: He was limited in practice this week, but is fully expected to play a full game.

Deshaun Watson, QB, HOU: Team decision — OUT


Impact: Davis Mills continues to start, and struggle, for the Texans.

Danny Amendola, WR, HOU: Thigh — OUT


Impact: Chris Conley and Anthony Miller to get a lot more snaps.

Carson Wentz, QB, IND: Ankle — Questionable


Impact: There’s no reason to believe Wentz won’t attempt to play through his injury.

Jonathan Taylor, RB, IND: Knee — Questionable


Impact: He’s expected to play, albeit with a banged-up supporting cast.

Jack Doyle, TE, IND: Back — Questionable


Impact: Practiced a bit on Friday, which would lean towards a Sunday start.

Dalvin Cook, RB, MIN: Ankle — Questionable


Impact: Practiced at least a little bit every day this week. Expect a Week 4 start.

Sterling Shepard, WR, NYG: Hamstring — OUT


Impact: Collin Johnson and Kadarius Toney to supplement Kenny Golladay.

Darius Slayton, WR, NYG: Hamstring — OUT


Impact: John Ross was activated from IR, but unlikely to see much action, if any.

Kaden Smith, TE, NYG: Knee — Questionable


Impact: We’re still waiting for either Smith or Evan Engram to have a breakout game.

La’Mical Perine, RB, NYJ: Illness — Questionable


Impact: The trio of Michael Carter, Tevin Coleman, and Ty Johnson are likely to battle for touches.

Elijah Moore, WR, NYJ: Concussion — OUT


Impact: His absence will allow Denzel Mims to suit up this week.

Jamison Crowder, WR, NYJ: Groin — Questionable


Impact: Practiced on Friday and looks good to make his 2021 debut.

Tyler Kroft, TE, NYJ: Ribs — Questionable

Julio Jones, WR, TEN: Hamstring — OUT


Impact: Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and Josh Reynolds will attempt to step up their game.

A.J. Brown, WR, TEN: Hamstring — OUT


Impact: Marcus Johnson and Chester Rogers might also get a lot more looks.

Lamar Jackson, QB, BAL: Back — Questionable


Impact: Jackson plans to play, with new backfield mate RB Le’Veon Bell possibly in the mix for carries.

Melvin Gordon III, RB, DEN: Ribs — Questionable


Impact: Either way, Javonte Williams may well end up with the most touches in the Denver backfield.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR, GB: Hamstring — OUT/IR


Impact: Could Allen Lazard have one or two splash plays in him?

Darrell Henderson Jr., RB, LAR: Ribs — Questionable


Impact: Buddy Howell again gets the call from the practice squad, but Henderson should still play.

Chase Claypool, WR, PIT: Hamstring — OUT


Impact: TE Pat Freiermuth may end up as the biggest beneficiary of Claypool’s absence in terms of targets.

Rashaad Penny, RB, SEA: Calf — OUT/IR


Impact: Alex Collins and Travis Homer will back up Chris Carson.

Dee Eskridge, WR, SEA: Concussion — Doubtful


Impact: It’s been a tough few weeks for Eskridge, which has led to more work for Freddie Swain.

Tyler Lockett, WR, SEA: Hip — Questionable


Impact: He is fully expected to give it a go on Sunday.

Gerald Everett, TE, SEA: COVID-19 — Doubtful


Impact: Barring multiple consecutive negative tests for Everett, Will Dissly will get the start.

Elijah Mitchell, RB, SF: Shoulder — Questionable


Impact: Given the late start, it might be safer to roll with either Trey Sermon or even Kyle Juszczyk.

George Kittle, TE, SF: Calf — Questionable


Impact: This may end up being a game-time call, so be sure to have a backup plan in place, just in case.

Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, TB: Shoulder — OUT

Jamel Dean, CB, TB: Knee — OUT

J.C. Jackson, CB, NE: Knee — Questionable
