Who to start? Who should you sit on? To help you finalize your fantasy football rosters and avoid starting a player who won’t be in the roster, we post fantasy-related updates and analysis here when NFL teams update their official inactive player lists publish. All rankings quoted in this column are from our ESPN Fantasy staff.
Sunday official inactives should begin approximately 90 minutes prior to scheduled kickoff times, including approximately 11:30am ET for early games and 2:30pm ET for late games.
Update frequently for the latest information.
1 p.m. ET games
Trevor Siemian, QB, CHI: Aslant — OFF/IR

Impact: Harrison Bryant becomes an interesting TE option.
KJ Hamler, WR, DEN: Achilles tendon — OFF/IR
Impact: Kendall Hinton could see some additional targets…
Courtland Sutton, WR, DEN: Illness — Questionable
Impact: …as will Jalen Virgil or Montrell Washington if Sutton takes a turn for the worse.
Jerry Jeudy, WR, DEN: ankles — Questionable
Impact: Barring a pregame setback, Jeudy is currently expected to try.
Romeo Doubs, WR, UK: ankles — Questionable
Impact: While he could eat into Christian Watson and Allen Lazard’s numbers, the more the merrier for the Packers’ passing attack.

Impact: He should be able to clear the league log by the time this game kicks off.
Brandin Cooks, WR, HOU: Calf — OUT
Impact: It’s The Nico Collins Show in Houston.
