NFL Week 9 fantasy football inactives watch — Who’s in and who’s out?


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 inactives, typically about 90 minutes before kickoff. Any rankings cited in this column come from our ESPN Fantasy staff ranks.

Refresh often for the latest information.


4 p.m. ET games

Offense

Kenyan Drake, RB, ARI: Ankle — OUT
Impact: Chase Edmonds will replace him in the Arizona backfield and should produce strong numbers.

Ezekiel Elliott, RB, DAL: Hamstring — Questionable
Impact: Tony Pollard would be the fantasy pivot. Cowboys promoted Sewo Olonilua from the practice squad — not a great sign for Elliott’s availability.

Andy Dalton, QB, DAL: Illness — OUT/IR
Impact: Ben DiNucci, who stepped up in Week 8, will be replaced by Garrett Gilbert.

Keenan Allen, WR, LAC: Illness — Active
Impact: Mike Williams could get a few more looks if Allen can’t play a full 60 minutes.

Josh Jacobs, RB, LV: Knee — Active
Impact: Devontae Booker and Jalen Richard would split carries if he ends up unable to finish.

Matt Breida, RB, MIA: Hamstring — OUT
Impact: A trio of mediocre RB options remain, with Myles Gaskin (knee) on the IR.

Vance McDonald, TE, PIT: Illness — Questionable
Impact: Eric Ebron is coming off two solid fantasy performances.

Defense

Jordan Phillips, DE, ARI: Hamstring — Questionable

Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, ARI: Thigh — OUT

Aldon Smith, DE, DAL: Knee — Questionable

Joey Bosa, DE, LAC: Concussion — Inactive

Casey Hayward Jr., CB, LAC: Personal — Active

Trayvon Mullen, CB, LV: Hamstring — Active

Tyson Alualu, DE, PIT: Knee — OUT

Mike Hilton, CB, PIT: Shoulder — Doubtful

Sunday night game

New Orleans Saints

Michael Thomas, WR, NO: Hamstring — Questionable
Impact: He’s a game-time call, which is scary for fantasy purposes, but Sean Payton says he believes the receiver will play.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Chris Godwin, WR, TB: Finger — Questionable
Impact: Similarly, Bruce Arians believes Godwin will play, as will recent signee Antonio Brown.

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.


1 p.m. ET games

Offense

Calvin Ridley, WR, ATL: Foot — Inactive
Impact: Didn’t practice all week. Russell Gage may see an uptick in targets.

Mark Ingram II, RB, BAL: Ankle — Inactive
Impact: J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards will divvy up the RB work.

Chris Moore, WR, BAL: Thigh — OUT/IR
Impact: James Proche II might be a flex gamble worth taking.

Devin Duvernay, WR, BAL: Thigh — Active
Impact: Late-week injury is still a bad sign. Plus, Dez Bryant has been activated.

T.J. Yeldon, RB, BUF: Back — OUT
Impact: Zack Moss‘ emergence has made Yeldon expendable for fantasy purposes.

Dawson Knox, TE, BUF: Calf — Active
Impact: Just off the reserve/COVID-19 list and may not be fully up to speed.

Mitchell Trubisky, QB, CHI: Shoulder — OUT
Impact: Will not be placed on IR, but won’t be able to play for some time. Nick Foles starts again.

Cole Kmet, TE, CHI: Groin — Active
Impact: Jimmy Graham could still see a few more targets.

Phillip Lindsay, RB, DEN: Foot — Active
Impact: Was always expected to play and handle his usual number of touches.

Tim Patrick, WR, DEN: Hamstring — Active
Impact: Will suit up after missing last week’s action.

Nick Vannett, TE, DEN: Foot — Active
Impact: The crowded Broncos TE depth chart isn’t where fantasy managers should turn.

Kenny Golladay, WR, DET: Hip — OUT
Impact: Marvin Jones Jr. and Marvin Hall will have to help QB Matthew Stafford, who is expected to play after being on the reserve/COVID-19 list all week.

T.Y. Hilton, WR, IND: Groin — Inactive
Impact: Michael Pittman Jr. gets a boost in value.

Marcus Johnson, WR, IND: Knee — Active
Impact: Given Hilton’s absence, this decision may not indicate Johnson’s true health status. Be careful.

Mo Alie-Cox, TE, IND: Knee — Active
Impact: Practiced more later in the week, which bodes well for his Sunday performance.

Gardner Minshew II, QB, JAX: Thumb — OUT
Impact: Rookie Jake Luton is expected to start, with Mike Glennon in reserve.

Sammy Watkins, WR, KC: Hamstring — OUT
Impact: Mecole Hardman continues to be a strong substitute for Watkins.

Devonta Freeman, RB, NYG: Ankle — OUT
Impact: Wayne Gallman and, to a lesser degree, Alfred Morris will get reps for the Giants.

Golden Tate, WR, NYG: Coach’s decision — OUT
Impact: Austin Mack and C.J. Board may see increased roles.

Carlos Hyde, RB, SEA: Hamstring — OUT
Impact: DeeJay Dallas will likely get the lion’s share of RB action for Seattle.

Chris Carson, RB, SEA: Foot — OUT
Impact: Alex Collins has been promoted from the practice squad and may be the No. 2 RB option.

Adam Humphries, WR, TEN: Concussion — OUT
Impact: Kalif Raymond/Nick Westbrook-Ikhine become marginal flex options.

Dontrelle Inman, WR, WSH: Hamstring — Inactive
Impact: Steven Sims Jr., fresh off the IR, will likely jump into the Football Team’s No. 2 WR role.

Dante Fowler Jr., DE, ATL: Hamstring — OUT

Takkarist McKinley, DE, ATL: Groin — OUT
