Last minute fantasy football start/sit advice as Week 8 inactives come in

We break down the last minute fantasy football decisions you have to make in light of Week 8 inactive reports.

Week 8 of the NFL season continues on Sunday, October 30. The Sunday slate gets started overseas as the Denver Broncos will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars from Wembley Stadium in London, England. We will see if those mid-flight high knees will help Russell Wilson avoid a 2-6 start to the season.

We’re back for another week of fantasy football lineup advice. Below is a list of all the questionable players as fantasy football managers start finalizing lineups. If like me, you are an Amon-Ra St. Brown manager, you are definitely going to want to know if he is active and can get back to fantasy relevance that he hasn’t had since Week 2. Other players to look for include Davante Adams, Brandin Cooks, DK Metcalf among others.

We’ll drop in updates as they come along until we get official final inactives at 11:30 a.m. ET and then again before the 4 p.m. games.
