Who should you start? Who should you sit? 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.

1 p.m. ET games
Kenyan Drake, RB, ARI: Hip — Questionable
Impact: He was limited in practice this past week, but he still should handle lead back duties for the Cardinals.
Curtis Samuel, WR, CAR: Illness — Questionable
Impact: He’s been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Likely to play, but potentially limited.
Tee Higgins, WR, CIN: Hamstring — Questionable
Impact: He should suit up on Sunday as he got no worse for the wear during the week.
Brandin Cooks, WR, HOU: Foot — Questionable
Impact: Cooks is iffy, but Keke Coutee should be active. Few alternative options remain at WR …
Kyle Rudolph, TE, MIN: Foot — Doubtful
Impact: After not practicing all week, it doesn’t look good for Rudolph …
Irv Smith Jr., TE, MIN: Back — Questionable
Impact: … but could he give it a try if Smith can’t? Stranger things have happened.
Daniel Jones, QB, NYG: Hamstring — Questionable
Impact: Barring any last-second setbacks, Jones should be back in the Giants’ huddle.
De’Vondre Campbell, LB, ARI: Ankle — Questionable
Isaiah Simmons, LB, ARI: Neck — Questionable
Jalen Thompson, S, ARI: Ankle — OUT
Tre Boston, S, CAR: Hamstring — Questionable

4 p.m. ET games
Matthew Stafford, QB, DET: Thumb — Questionable
Impact: No reason that Stafford won’t continue his audition for other teams in the hopes he finds a new home for next season.
D’Andre Swift, RB, DET: Illness — Questionable
Impact: He fully participated in practice Friday, so this could be the week he finally returns to action.
Josh Jacobs, RB, LV: Ankle — Questionable
Impact: He’s expected to be a game-time call, but signs point to his being able to play.
Deonte Harris, WR, NO: Neck — Questionable
Impact: If he plays, no more than special-teams value is expected from him this week since Taysom Hill will handle QB duties for what could be the last time before Drew Brees returns.
Jamison Crowder, WR, NYJ: Calf — Questionable
Impact: He was a late add to the injury report. Denzel Mims will miss this game for personal reasons, leaving Breshad Perriman as the only other receiver of interest.

Jeff Okudah, CB, DET: Groin — OUT/IR
