May 20, 2024

Whom should you start? Whom should you sit? To help you set your fantasy football lineups and avoid starting an offensive 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. 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: around 11:30 a.m. ET for the early games and 2:30 p.m. ET for the late-afternoon games.

Refresh often for the latest information.


1 p.m. ET games

Michael Wilson, WR, ARIQuestionable
Impact: With Wilson being a late add to the injury report due to his shoulder issues and Zach Pascal out due to a bad hamstring, perhaps Greg Dortch will get some looks?

Emari Demercado, RB, ARIOUT
Impact: Either Keaontay Ingram or Michael Carter, just claimed off waivers from the Jets, will back up James Conner.

Hayden Hurst, TE, CAROUT
Impact: Tommy Tremble will see an increase in targets with Hurst still in the league’s concussion protocol.

Justin Fields, QB, CHIActivated from IR
Impact: He’s missed a month due to a thumb injury, but is finally ready to return to the Bears huddle this week.

D’Onta Foreman, RB, CHIQuestionable
Impact: He’s expected to play, but the workload distribution between him and Khalil Herbert, just activated from IR, remains to be seen.

Deshaun Watson, QB, CLEOUT/IR
Impact: His shoulder surgery has him out for the remainder of 2023. Dorian Thompson-Robinson will start this week with and PJ Walker as his backup.

Marquise Goodwin, WR, CLEOUT
Impact: He remains sidelined following a concussion. Cedric Tillman will step up as the No. 3 wide receiver behind Amari Cooper and Elijah Moore.

Rico Dowdle, RB, DALQuestionable
Impact: Deuce Vaughn and Malik Davis would be in the mix to back up Tony Pollard.

Dameon Pierce, RB, HOUOUT
Impact: Devin Singletary gets to handle lead back duties again for the Texans.

Noah Brown, WR, HOUQuestionable
Impact: He did not practice at all this week and is not likely to suit up. However, Nico Collins (calf) should be good to go.

Zay Jones, WR, JAXQuestionable
Impact: Jones, dealing with off-the-field issues, is likely to be a game-time decision.

Keenan Allen, WR, LACQuestionable
Impact: He practiced in full on Friday, so he’s looking good to suit up.

Jalen Guyton, WR, LACQuestionable
Impact: After being added to the injury report on Friday, all signs point to Guyton not playing this weekend. Hello Quentin Johnston?

Gerald Everett, TE, LACOUT
Impact: Donald Parham Jr. gets a big boost in fantasy value as a result.

De’Von Achane, RB, MIAActivated from IR
Impact: Exactly how many touches he gets is unclear, but he certainly made the most of his chances prior to his injury. Raheem Mostert was limited in practice all week, but still may end up with more touches.

Chase Claypool, WR, MIAOUT
Impact: He had knee surgery and is unlikely to return to the field in time to help fantasy managers in 2023. Braxton Berrios, if his hamstring allows, could step up. Robbie Chosen was elevated from the practice squad.

Durham Smythe, TE, MIAQuestionable
Impact: A few limited practices late in the week points towards Smythe being able to play on Sunday.

Pat Freiermuth, TE, PITQuestionable
Impact: He’s expected to be back from the IR this week.

Treylon Burks, WR, TENOUT
Impact: Kyle Philips has the opportunity to start alongside DeAndre Hopkins.

Antonio Gibson, RB, WSHDoubtful
Impact: Expect Brian Robinson Jr. to handle most of Washington’s RB touches, with Chris Rodriguez Jr. in reserve.


4 p.m. ET games

Garrett Wilson, WR, NYJQuestionable
Impact: Wilson, coming off a nine-catch outing, says he is going to play.

Tyler Lockett, WR, SEAQuestionable
Impact: He’s likely to attempt to play through his hamstring woes, but Jaxon Smith-Njigba may still be asked to contribute more in this one.


Sunday night game

Justin Jefferson, WR, MINOUT/IR
Impact: The team has just one more week to activate Jefferson, so a Week 12 start seems plausible. K.J. Osborn is questionable, but may be able to return from his concussion this week.

Alexander Mattison, RB, MINQuestionable
Impact: With no guarantee of him clearing the league’s concussion protocol, Ty Chandler is perhaps the safer pick. However, reports have begun to come in that Mattison will play.

Jaren Hall, QB, MINOUT
Impact: Hall’s concussion will keep him from suiting up, but this appears to be Joshua Dobbs‘ job to lose right now. Nick Mullens is expected to be activated from IR to be the backup.
