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.

J.K. Dobbins, RB, BAL: Knee — Questionable
Impact: Practiced all week, but even if he plays, we’re probably looking at limited usage.
Cedrick Wilson Jr., WR, MIA: Toe — Questionable
Impact: He’s gotten some practice in toward the end of the week, so there’s optimism he can play.
Jameis Winston, QB, NO: Back — Questionable
Impact: Given all the injuries in this backfield, even though he’s looking good to start, we’d avoid Winston in Week 2.
Alvin Kamara, RB, NO: Ribs — Questionable
Impact: Being held out of practices isn’t exactly a good sign. He’s likely to try to convince coaches to let him play, but we’re wary.
Mark Ingram II, RB, NO: Ankle — Questionable
Impact: At least Ingram saw some reps this week. He should be ready to step into Kamara’s shoes.
Kadarius Toney, WR, NYG: Hamstring — Questionable
Impact: It’s looking like he’ll be a game-time call, but with a lean toward him being a go.
Leonard Fournette, RB, TB: Hamstring — Questionable
Impact: After being able to practice twice late in the week, we’d expect Fournette to suit up.
Chris Godwin, WR, TB: Hamstring — OUT
Impact: Godwin might be out multiple weeks with this injury.
Julio Jones, WR, TB: Knee — Questionable
Impact: Missed two practices this week, but seems to be on course to play. He’ll be a game-time call.
Mike Evans, WR, TB: Calf — Questionable
Impact: Got hurt Wednesday, but was able to practice Friday. We’ll see.
Breshad Perriman, WR, TB: Knee — Questionable
Impact: He appears to be healthy enough to play, and with all these injuries around him, that might make him a Week 2 factor.
Russell Gage, WR, TB: Hamstring — Questionable
Impact: With all the bumps and bruises in the Tampa Bay WR room, anybody who can suit up has a chance to shine.
