The NFL has a ten-game slate this week, which means there are plenty of fantasy options to keep you entertained. Unfortunately, the majority of your investments will be on hold while they wait for updates from their respective injuries and suspensions.
The “week 13 inactives” is a watch list for the NFL’s Week 13. It includes all the players that are inactive for their respective teams.

With whom should you begin? Should you take a seat next to whom? We’ll provide fantasy-relevant updates and analysis here when NFL clubs issue their official inactives lists, usually around 90 minutes before kickoff, to help you plan your fantasy football lineups and prevent starting a player who won’t be participating. Any rankings in this column are based on our ESPN Fantasy staff.
Official Sunday inactives should arrive roughly 90 minutes before the planned start time, at 11:30 a.m. ET for early games and 2:30 p.m. ET for late games.
For the most up-to-date information, refresh often.
Games begin at 1 p.m. ET.
Kyler Murray, ARI quarterback: Ankle — Questionable Impact: If Murray is unable to play by kickoff, Colt McCoy will take his place.
Hopkins, DeAndre, WR, ARI: Hamstring — He’ll also be a game-time decision, with Rondale Moore and Christian Kirk receiving boosts if he sits.
CHI’s Justin Fields, QB: Ribs — Andy Dalton has already been named as the starter for this one.
Khalil Herbert will take over as David Montgomery’s backup. Damien Williams, RB, CHI: Calf — OUT
WR Allen Robinson II of the Chicago Bears has a hamstring injury. Darnell Mooney is expected to be the team’s No. 1 wide receiver this week.
Damiere Byrd could see an uptick in targets. Marquise Goodwin, WR, CHI: Foot — OUT
Chris Evans, RB, Cincinnati Bengals: Ankle — Samaje Perine is now the most probable alternative if Joe Mixon has to be spelled.
RB D’Andre Swift (DET) is out with a shoulder injury. Swift’s workload will be taken up by Jamaal Williams (and potentially Jermar Jefferson).
David Johnson, RB, Houston Texans: Illness — Questionable Impact: Didn’t practice this week, thus Rex Burkhead may get the most of the plays.
HOU WR Danny Amendola (knee) is out. Impact: This week, Phillip Dorsett II was signed to a contract to provide more wide receiver possibilities.
HOU’s Brandin Cooks, WR: Illness — Impact is debatable: He practiced on Friday and should be able to do it.
HOU’s Chris Conley, WR: Illness — Impact: Could also play and team up with Nico Collins as a receiving option.
Knee — Jack Doyle, TE, Indianapolis Impact is debatable: Late in the week, we practiced and it seems like we’ll be ready to go on Sunday.
Phillip Lindsay, RB, is out in action due to an ankle injury. Myles Gaskin should receive virtually all of Miami’s carries, which is a questionable impact.
Knee — Adam Shaheen, TE, MIA Impact: With WR DeVante Parker returning from IR, Shaheen may not be missed if he is forced to sit.
RB Dalvin Cook (Minnesota): Shoulder — OUT As a result of Kene Nwangwu’s illness, Alexander Mattison may be the lone backfield option.
QB Daniel Jones of the New York Giants: Neck — OUT Mike Glennon’s impact: Mike Glennon is an uninspiring fantasy quarterback.
Quad — Sterling Shepard, WR, New York Giants Kenny Golladay and John Ross will have to step up to the plate.
Quad — Kadarius Toney, WR, New York Giants Even if New York’s best receivers are able to play, the absence of QB Jones makes them undesirable for fantasy purposes.
Kyle Rudolph, New York Giants TE: Ankle — Evan Engram has already established himself as the Giants’ primary tight end.
Corey Davis, New York Jets wide receiver: Groin — Davis has lost ground to Elijah Moore in the race for the Jets’ No. 1 WR honors as a result of a game-time decision.
NYJ WR Keelan Cole: COVID-19 — OUT Impact: Denzel Mims, fortunately for New York, has returned from his stint on the same list.
Jalen Hurts, QB, Philadelphia Eagles: Ankle — Spectacular Impact: Don’t forget your mustaches! With the Hurts’ mobility issues, Gardner Minshew II will almost probably be in the starting lineup.
Jordan Howard, RB, Philadelphia Eagles: Knee — OUT Impact: Miles Sanders is the Eagles’ obvious No. 1 choice.
Boston Kenneth Gainwell will be the clear-cut No. 2 option if Scott sits. Scott, RB, PHI: Illness — Questionable Impact: If Scott sits, Kenneth Gainwell will be the clear-cut No. 2 option.

RB J.D. McKissic of the Washington Redskins is out with a concussion. Wendell Smallwood, who had been on the practice squad, was upgraded to the active roster and could catch a couple passes.
Curtis WR Samuel (WAS): Groin — Samuel is anticipated to play, and he may even get a greater share of the receiving pie than he did last week.
