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.

1 p.m. ET games


Julio Jones, WR, ATL: Hamstring -- Questionable
Impact: He didn't practice all week. Russell Gage is a strong fantasy alternative.

Impact: Devin Singletary to get all the meaningful RB snaps.

Dawson Knox, TE, BUF: Concussion -- OUT
Impact: Tyler Kroft moves up the team's TE depth chart.

Duke Johnson, RB, HOU: Ankle -- Questionable
Impact: David Johnson leads this backfield. C.J. Prosise signed from practice squad.

Impact: DeAndre Carter/Keke Coutee become options if he's still not up to playing.

Cam Akers, RB, LAR: Ribs -- OUT

Alshon Jeffery, WR, PHI: Foot -- OUT
Impact: Greg Ward will be across the field from DeSean Jackson.
