Last minute fantasy football start/sit advice as Week 10 inactives come in

We break down the last minute fantasy football decisions you have to make in light of Week 10 inactive reports.

The NFL is through the halfway point of the season and the playoff picture is starting to come into focus. More importantly for fantasy football players, time is starting to run out on your playoff chances if you’re still struggling. The NFL playoffs start in Week 15, and with Week 10 upon us, time is flying by.

The big news for Week 10 is that Ben Roethlisberger was ruled out on Saturday due to COVID-19. It’s unclear how much this hurts Steelers fantasy options given Roethlisberger’s struggles at times, but Mason Rudolph is not exactly a high-upside entity.

The Week 10 main slate brings some notable injuries to keep an eye on heading into inactive reports. Cardinals QB Kyler Murray and WR DeAndre Hopkins are both questionable and the team seems pessimistic either will play. With Chase Edmonds added to IR, they’ll likely roll out Colt McCoy and James Conner as starters once again.

Arguably the biggest question this week is James Robinson. The Jaguars running back is questionable and it’s not clear what his active/inactive status will be. The Jags play the Colts at 1 p.m. so we’ll know his status by 11:30.

We’ll be keeping an eye out for news on pertinent players and figuring out last-minute roster decisions while we wait for inactive reports 90 minutes before kickoffs. All of that means not only who is not playing this week, but who is playing but might not be the best start in your Week 10 fantasy football lineup. We’ll provide updates on injuries, key start/sit decisions, and more leading up to 1 p.m. kickoffs.
