Last minute fantasy football start/sit advice as Week 7 inactives come in

We break down the last minute fantasy football decisions you have to make in light of Week 7 inactive reports.

The NFL is back for Week 7 of the 2020 regular season, and is on track for a second straight on-time Sunday schedule. Covid-19 raised some concerns about Bucs-Raiders and Panthers-Saints, but both games are on track for Sunday after no positive tests Sunday morning.

We have a slightly more balanced Sunday schedule with seven games at 1 p.m. ET and four in the 4:05/4:25 p.m. time slot. The early schedule is highlighted by two unbeatens facing off when the Titans host the Steelers. The late schedule is topped by what could be a fun game between the Bucs and Raiders. That game was originally scheduled for Sunday Night Football, but got moved to earlier in the day due to Covid-19 concerns.

We have a few big names still in question as of Sunday morning. Most notably, Packers running back Aaron Jones is dealing with a calf injury. He’s a game-time decision and seems to be trending in the wrong direction to play. Thankfully, Packers inactives are due at 11:30 a.m. ET, so we’ll know early if he’s a go.

We’ll be keeping an eye out for news on pertinent players and figuring out last minute roster decisions. That means not only who is not playing this week, but who is playing but might not be the best start in your Week 7 fantasy football lineup. We’ll provide updates on injuries, key start/sit decisions, and more leading up to 1 p.m. kickoffs.
