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 3 inactive reports.

The NFL is back for Week 3 of the 2020 regular season, and kickoff is fast approaching for Sunday’s 14-game slate. The season got underway on Thursday with the Dolphins thumping the Jaguars in somewhat unexpected fashion. Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 18 of 20 passes for two touchdowns and also accumulated 38 yards and a touchdown on the ground. He was a fantasy machine!

We’re back for Sunday’s loaded slate of 14 games. We’ve got eight games at 1 p.m., highlighted by the unbeaten Rams and Bills squaring off in Buffalo. That’s followed by five games in the 4:05/4:25 p.m. slot, highlighted by Dak Prescott and the Cowboys traveling to face Russell Wilson and the Seahawks in what could turn into a shootout. We wrap with Sunday Night Football featuring the Packers traveling to face the Saints in a big matchup for both teams.

We’re into the third week of the regular season, and we have some significant injury questions to sort out. The biggest is Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, who is questionable with a hamstring injury. The team is putting him through pre-game paces to figure out if he can play. Falcons inactives are due by 11:30 a.m. ET.

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