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

We break down the last minute fantasy football decisions you have to make in light of Week 2 inactive reports.

The NFL is back for Week 2 of the 2020 regular season, and it’s almost time to kick off Sunday’s 14-game slate. The season got underway on Thursday with the Browns beating the Bengals 35-30 in an unexpected shootout. Neither team looked like world beaters, but they made for a fun contest that saw the Bengals get a late cover courtesy of a Joe Burrow touchdown pass.

We’re back for Sunday’s loaded slate of 14 games. We’ve got ten games at 1 p.m., highlighted by new home debuts for Tom Brady and Philip Rigers. That’s followed by three games in the 4:05/4:25 p.m. slot, highlighted by a potentially fun matchup between Lamar Jackson and DeShaun Watson. We wrap with Sunday Night Football featuring the Patriots traveling to face the Seahawks in what should be an exciting contest between Cam Newton and Russell Wilson.

We’re into the second week of the regular season, and we have a few significant injury questions to determine. Most notably, Courtland Sutton is questionable but the Broncos are hopeful he can make his debut after injured his shoulder in practice leading up to Week 1. The most significant injury question is not a direct fantasy option, with Cowboys tackle Tyron Smith questionable and the proverbial “true game-time decision.”

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

This is a big boost for Drew Lock
