NFL Week 13 fantasy football inactives watch: Who's in and who's out?

Whom should you start? Whom should you sit? To help you set your fantasy football lineups and to avoid starting a player who won't be playing, 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 time, 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.

James Robinson, RB, JAX: Heel -- Active
Impact: Practiced enough this week that a start always seemed likely.

Darrell Henderson Jr., RB, LAR: Thigh -- Active
Impact: Sony Michel may still get more touches, even with Henderson dressing for this one.

Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LAR: Hip -- Active
Impact: No surprise to see Beckham playing today.

Josh Jacobs, RB, LV: Ankle -- Active

DeSean Jackson, WR, LV: Calf -- Active
Impact: Despite missing some practice this week, he seems to be ready to go.

Darren Waller, TE, LV: Knee -- OUT
Impact: Foster Moreau will take over at tight end and should have a big day.

Alex Collins, RB, SEA: Abdomen -- Inactive
Impact: Adrian Peterson was promoted to the active roster and will likely take carries from somebody.

Rashaad Penny, RB, SEA: Hamstring -- Active
Impact: Apart from Peterson, DeeJay Dallas is the only fully healthy Seattle back.

Travis Homer, RB, SEA: Calf -- Active
Impact: It's likely to be a committee approach to the backfield. Avoid them all.

Trey Sermon, RB, SF: Ankle -- OUT/IR
Impact: Elijah Mitchell and Jeff Wilson Jr. will be just fine without him.

Deebo Samuel, WR, SF: Groin -- OUT
Impact: Expect some of his targets to go to either Trent Sherfield or Jauan Jennings, but not enough for them to matter.

J.D. McKissic, RB, WAS: Concussion -- OUT
Impact: Wendell Smallwood was promoted from the practice squad and could catch a few passes.

Curtis Samuel, WR, WAS: Groin -- Active
Impact: Samuel will play and could even see a bigger piece of the receiving pie than he did last week.

Ricky Seals-Jones, TE, WAS: Hip -- Inactive
Impact: Even when he does return to the field, Logan Thomas is still ahead of him.

DeAndre Hopkins, WR, ARI: Hamstring -- Active
Impact: He was a game-time call. Rondale Moore and Christian Kirk due for boosts if he stumbles.

Justin Fields, QB, CHI: Ribs -- Inactive
Impact: No surprise as Andy Dalton had already been tabbed to start this one.

Impact: Khalil Herbert to back up David Montgomery.

Allen Robinson II, WR, CHI: Hamstring -- Inactive
Impact: Darnell Mooney likely to be the team's No. 1 WR this week.

Impact: Rex Burkhead likely to play on the majority of snaps.

Danny Amendola, WR, HOU: Knee -- OUT/IR
Impact: Phillip Dorsett II was signed to a deal this week to add some WR options.

Brandin Cooks, WR, HOU: Illness -- Active

Chris Conley, WR, HOU: Illness -- Active
Impact: He joins Nico Collins in the mix of the team's potential flex gambles.

Impact: Myles Gaskin should get nearly all of Miami's carries.

Adam Shaheen, TE, MIA: Knee -- Inactive
Impact: With WR DeVante Parker finally back from IR, Shaheen might not be missed.

Dalvin Cook, RB, MIN: Shoulder -- OUT
Impact: Kene Nwangwu is under the weather, so Alexander Mattison might be the lone backfield option.

Daniel Jones, QB, NYG: Neck -- OUT
Impact: Mike Glennon makes for an unappealing fantasy quarterback.

Sterling Shepard, WR, NYG: Quad -- Inactive
Impact: Kenny Golladay and John Ross will have to step up.

Kadarius Toney, WR, NYG: Quad -- Inactive
Impact: Even if New York's top receivers can play, the loss of QB Jones makes them unappealing for fantasy.

Kyle Rudolph, TE, NYG: Ankle -- Active
Impact: Even so, Evan Engram is the preferred Giants TE option.

Corey Davis, WR, NYJ: Groin -- Active
Impact: Davis has lost ground to Elijah Moore in the battle for the Jets' No. 1 WR honors.

Keelan Cole, WR, NYJ: COVID-19 -- OUT
Impact: Fortunately for New York, Denzel Mims is back from his stay on this same list.
