Last minute fantasy football start/sit advice as Week 16 inactives come in

We break down the last minute fantasy football decisions you have to make in light of Week 16 inactive reports.

The NFL is back for Week 16 of the 2020 regular season, and we’ve made it through a busy early part of the holiday weekend. The Saints beat the Vikings on Christmas, and that was followed by the Bucs, 49ers, and Dolphins winning their Saturday games. We are left with 11 games on Sunday and Monday Night Football to wrap up the week.

It’s championship week in fantasy football playoffs, and there are some notable injury questions to sort out this week. Keenan Allen seems unlikely to play, but we await final word. Ezekiel Elliott and Antonio Gibson are both expected back this week.

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 16 fantasy football lineup. We’ll provide updates on injuries, key start/sit decisions, and more leading up to 1 p.m. kickoffs.
