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.

Jacoby Brissett, QB, IND: Knee -- OUT

James Conner, RB, PIT: Shoulder -- OUT
Impact: Jaylen Samuels likely to receive the majority of carries.

Benny Snell Jr., RB, PIT: Knee -- OUT
Impact: Trey Edmunds practiced late in week and should provide RB backup.

JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, PIT: Foot -- Active

Offense

Chase Edmonds, RB, ARI: Hamstring -- OUT
Impact: David Johnson returns, with Kenyan Drake as stellar support.

Damiere Byrd, WR, ARI: Team decision -- Inactive
Impact: Andy Isabella may have earned himself an increase in playing time.

Ito Smith, RB, ATL: Neck -- OUT/IR
Impact: Brian Hill/Kenjon Barner become handcuff material.

Lamar Jackson, QB, BAL: Illness -- Active
Impact: Will start after returning to practice late in week.

Marquise Brown, WR, BAL: Ankle -- Active
Impact: Willie Snead IV is left in limbo.

Impact: Trey Burton to get the majority of TE looks.

A.J. Green, WR, CIN: Ankle -- OUT

Ricky Seals-Jones, TE, CLE: Knee -- Inactive
Impact: Demetrius Harris should see uptick in value with Seals-Jones sitting.

Antonio Callaway, WR, CLE: Team decision -- Inactive
Impact: Very surprising call. Combined with Kareem Hunt in backfield, this may signal a run-heavy attack today.

Matthew Stafford, QB, DET: Back, Hip -- Inactive
Impact: Detroit will not let him play today. Jeff Driskel will start. Lower all Lions in value.

LeSean McCoy, RB, KC: Team decision -- Inactive
Impact: Darrel Williams/Darwin Thompson to potentially handle backup duties.

Sterling Shepard, WR, NYG: Concussion -- OUT
Impact: At this point, there's no real reason to expect a return.

Evan Engram, TE, NYG: Foot -- OUT
Impact: Rhett Ellison takes over, but it's the Giants' WRs who should see extra looks.

Le'Veon Bell, RB, NYJ: Knee -- Active
Impact: Bell will play and is expected to receive his usual workload.

Demaryius Thomas, WR, NYJ: Hamstring -- Active
Impact: He has played through the injury for several weeks, but Sam Darnold is still his QB.

Impact: He is suiting up, but Ryan Griffin has done very well while he has been away.

Corey Davis, WR, TEN: Hip -- Inactive
Impact: A.J. Brown gets an opportunity to step up.

Delanie Walker, TE, TEN: Ankle -- OUT
Impact: Jonnu Smith has been averaging four catches per game.
