Who should you start with? Who should you sit To help you determine your fantasy football line-ups and to avoid starting a player who isn't on the line-up, we post fantasy-related updates and analysis here when NFL teams post their inactivity, usually around 90 Minutes before kick-off. All rankings mentioned in this column come from our ESPN Fantasy employees.
Update frequently to get the latest information.

Tee Higgins, WR, CIN: Hamstring – questionable
Impact: He should get dressed on Sunday as he did not get worse for wear and tear during the week.
Ezekiel Elliott, RB, DAL: Calf – questionable
Impact: Don't worry too much that it won't fit. Second cast Tony Pollard stays ready.
David Johnson, RB, HOU: Disease – OUT / IR
Impact: He was added to the reserve / COVID-19 list. Duke Johnson takes on the # 1 RB duties for Houston.
Brandin Cooks, WR, HOU: Foot – questionable
Impact: Cooks are dubious, but Keke Coutee should be active. With WR there are few alternative options …
Keke Coutee, WR, HOU: Knee – questionable
Impact: … for the Texans, with Isaiah Coulter perhaps the best of a bad bunch.
Tyler Eifert, TE, JAX: Shoulder – questionable
Impact: James O & # 39; Shaughnessy could be in play if Eifert can't leave this weekend.
Myles Gaskin, RB, MIA: Shoulder – OUT / IR

Alexander Mattison, RB, MIN: Appendix – OUT

Irv Smith Jr., TE, MIN: Back – questionable
Impact: … but could he try if Smith can't? Stranger things have happened.
Daniel Jones, QB, NYG: Hamstring – questionable
Impact: Aside from last-minute setbacks, Jones should be back in the Giants group.
Cameron Brate, TE, TB: Disease – questionable

Impact: Cunning veteran Mohamed Sanu Sr. has an additional week to remain potentially fantasy-relevant.

Josh Jacobs, RB, LV: Ankle – questionable
Impact: He is expected to be called at game time, but the signs suggest he can play.
Deonte Harris, WR, NO: Neck – questionable
Impact: If he plays, no more than a Special Team's worth is expected of him this week as Taysom Hill will be QB for what may be the last time before Drew Brees returns.
Frank Gore, RB, NYJ: Concussion – questionable
Impact: If Gore can actually play there is no need to notify Ty Johnson.
Jamison Crowder, WR, NYJ: Calf – questionable
Impact: He was included in the injury report late. Denzel Mims will miss this game for personal reasons, leaving Breshad Perriman the only other recipient of interest.
Travis Homer, RB, SEA: Knee – doubtful
