NFL Week 1 fantasy football inactives watch: Who’s in and who’s out?

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.

Refresh often for the latest information.

4 p.m. ET games


Mike Williams, WR, LAC: Shoulder — Active
Impact: Even though he is playing, this is a Tyrod Taylor-led offense. Avoid.

Virgil Green, TE, LAC: Quad — Active
Impact: Hunter Henry should get the majority of TE targets.

Deebo Samuel, WR, SF: Foot — OUT
Impact: Kendrick Bourne is the only completely healthy WR on the 49ers’ roster worth a look.

Brandon Aiyuk, WR, SF: Hamstring — Inactive
Impact: With Samuel on IR, Aiyuk could be a starter if he were healthy. Alas, he is not.

Tevin Coleman, RB, SF: Health concerns — Active
Impact: Air quality issues may force him to be at diminished capacity. If so, Jerick McKinnon’s value rises.

Mike Evans, WR, TB: Hamstring — Active
Impact: Improved late in week. Justin Watson would be next in line.


Geno Atkins, DT, CIN: Shoulder — OUT

Marcus Davenport, DE, NO: Elbow — OUT

Javon Wims, WR, CHI: Achilles — Active

Impact: Breshad Perriman, Jamison Crowder and Chris Hogan will split WR work.

Miles Sanders, RB, PHI: Hamstring — OUT
Impact: Boston Scott will handle No. 1 RB duties.

Alshon Jeffery, WR, PHI: Foot — OUT
Impact: Still could miss another month. Jalen Reagor gets a shot.
