Week 17 inactives: Who’s in and who’s out?

Whom should you start? Whom should you sit? To help you set your fantasy football lineups and 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 official inactives lists. Any rankings cited in this column come from our ESPN Fantasy staff ranks.

1 p.m. ET games


Colt McCoy, QB, ARI: Concussion — OUT
Impact: Apparently, things aren’t quite right just yet with McCoy, so the Cardinals will turn to David Blough.

DeAndre Hopkins, WR, ARI: Knee — OUT
Impact: Pick your poison, given the QB scenario here: Marquise Brown, Greg Dortch, A.J. Green or Robbie Anderson.

Tommy Tremble, TE, CAR: Hip — Questionable
Impact: He could be good for a couple of catches if he can play.

Dante Pettis, WR, CHI: Ankle — Questionable
Impact: Equanimeous St. Brown has cleared concussion protocol, so you could pivot in his direction, if needed.

Chase Claypool, WR, CHI: Knee — Questionable
Impact: Should he be able to play, Claypool is likely to dominate the target count.

Jerry Jeudy, WR, DEN: Ankle — Questionable
Impact: He’s expected to play this weekend.

Impact: Courtland Sutton is ready to return to action, limiting most of Hinton’s upside.

Impact: Could this mean a return to fantasy relevance for Albert Okwuegbunam?

Dare Ogunbowale, RB, HOU: Knee — Questionable
Impact: Royce Freeman may not have to share carries this week.

Teagan Quitoriano, TE, HOU: Knee — OUT
Impact: Admit it. You had no idea he was the Texans’ starting TE before reading this. Jordan Akins and Brevin Jordan will share targets.

Kylen Granson, TE, IND: Ankle — OUT
Impact: Can Nick Foles-to-Jelani Woods win you a fantasy title?

Trevor Lawrence, QB, JAX: Toe — Questionable
Impact: Although this game is technically meaningless to the Jaguars, Lawrence is not expected to sit this one out.

Tua Tagovailoa, QB, MIA: Concussion — OUT
Impact: The Dolphins will have to rely on Teddy Bridgewater to try and get them to the post-season.

Rhamondre Stevenson, RB, NE: Ankle — Questionable
Impact: He will probably split some of the RB duties with Damien Harris.

DeVante Parker, WR, NE: Concussion — OUT

Tyquan Thornton, WR, NE: Knee — Questionable
Impact: Given Parker’s injury, there’s a huge opportunity here.

Impact: If he can play, he’ll have a monopoly on any TE targets …

Jonnu Smith, TE, NE: Concussion — OUT
Impact: … with no other active options on the depth chart.

Chris Olave, WR, NO: Hamstring — Questionable
Impact: He’s looking likely to start alongside the likes of Rashid Shaheed and Tre’Quan Smith.

Impact: Once again, Gardner Minshew is going to start for the Eagles.

Julio Jones, WR, TB: Knee — Questionable
Impact: All signs point to Jones being able to dress for this one.

Christian Watson, WR, GB: Hip — Questionable
Impact: He’s looking like a game-time call, so having Allen Lazard as an alternative is not a bad idea.

Ben Skowronek, WR, LAR: Calf — OUT
Impact: Hello, Van Jefferson and Tutu Atwell? Is this thing on?

Tyler Higbee, TE, LAR: Elbow — Questionable
Impact: He’s fully expected to play this week and catch as many passes from Baker Mayfield as possible.

Tyler Lockett, WR, SEA: Hand — Questionable
