We break down the last minute fantasy football decisions you have to make in light of Week 12 inactive reports.

The NFL is back for Week 12 of the 2020 regular season, and things are slightly messy. Covid-19 has resulted in Ravens-Steelers getting pushed back from Thanksgiving to Sunday, and then again from Sunday to Tuesday. Meanwhile, the Broncos have placed all of their quarterbacks on the Covid-19 injured reserve list.

There are some big injury questions to sort out this week. Julio Jones is unlikely to play, but we’re awaiting final word. Kalen Ballage may not play, but the Chargers are also expected to get Austin Ekeler back. Oh, and we’re waiting for confirmation on the Broncos starting quarterback 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 12 fantasy football lineup. We’ll provide updates on injuries, key start/sit decisions, and more leading up to 1 p.m. kickoffs.
