Last minute fantasy football start/sit advice as Week 12 inactives come in

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

Should you captain Nick Chubb for this week’s Sunday Night Showdown?

Thanksgiving is officially behind us and the main Week 12 slate is at hand. With three games on Thursday and two teams on bye, we only get 11 games on Sunday. Fantasy lineups have already seen some significant impact across the three Thanksgiving games, but plenty remains to be decided.

There are some significant injuries to keep an eye on heading into Sunday’s slate. Most notably, Packers running back Aaron Jones is a game-time decision due to a knee injury. Considering he is not playing until 4:25 p.m. ET, that raises a host of issues if you don’t have A.J. Dillon available to slot in if we don’t know Jones status by the time 1 p.m. games kick off.

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