play
Berry: Lewis is worth a start with Henry out (1:22)

Matthew Berry believes Dion Lewis will be productive in Derrick Henry's absence and is worth a start in fantasy. (1:22)

To help you set your lineups and avoid starting a player who won't take the field, we will post fantasy-relevant updates and analysis here as NFL teams release their inactives lists, 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

Christian Kirk, WR, ARI: Ankle -- Active
Impact: Damiere Byrd might see an uptick in value if Kirk has any in-game setback. KeeSean Johnson sits.

Noah Fant, TE, DEN: Shoulder -- Active
Impact: Will suit up, but the potential reward may not be worth the risk.

Bo Scarbrough, RB, DET: Ribs -- Active
Impact: Kerryon Johnson was activated from IR, muddying this backfield picture. Avoid them all, if you can.

Justin Jackson, RB, LAC: Hamstring -- Inactive
Impact: He saw action last week only as "punishment" for Melvin Gordon's fumbles.

Josh Jacobs, RB, OAK: Shoulder -- OUT
Impact: DeAndre Washington is now in the mix for RB2 work in fantasy lineups.

Jordan Howard, RB, PHI: Shoulder -- Inactive
Impact: Miles Sanders/Boston Scott gain value.

Nelson Agholor, WR, PHI: Knee -- Inactive
Impact: Robert Davis may have some long-shot appeal.

Offense

A.J. Green, WR, CIN: Ankle -- OUT
Impact: What made you think this week would be any different?

David Njoku, TE, CLE: Team decision -- Inactive
Impact: Second week in a row for this decision. Not a good sign for long-term future.

DJ Chark Jr., WR, JAX: Ankle -- Active

Jason Sanders, K, MIA: Illness -- Active

Rhett Ellison, TE, NYG: Concussion -- OUT
Impact: Kaden Smith is the top TE option standing for the Giants.

Impact: Limited all week, but Le'Veon Bell is healthy so value here is otherwise capped.

Demaryius Thomas, WR, NYJ: Hamstring -- Inactive
Impact: Vyncint Smith could be a flex long-shot option.

Robby Anderson, WR, NYJ: Illness -- Active
Impact: Expected to be healthy enough to play.

Adam Humphries, WR, TEN: Ankle -- OUT
Impact: Tajae Sharpe should absorb a good number of Humphries' targets.

Derrick Henry, RB, TEN: Hamstring -- Inactive
Impact: Dalyn Dawkins added from practice squad. Dion Lewis will start.
