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.
Week 1 is usually the healthiest of weeks, with no games that count having been played this season. As such, the inactives list is not nearly as robust as it will be in future editions of this article. Still, if everyone is healthy, there may be a few surprise team decisions as to who won’t be dressing today. Stay tuned!
