Last minute fantasy football start/sit advice as Week 3 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 and it’s a busy injury report. The Browns beat the Steelers to open things on Thursday Night Football and now we head to the Sunday main course. We’ll be tracking all the notable injuries as fantasy football managers prepare their lineups for Sunday’s slate.

Tight end George Kittle is back in action for the 49ers, but there are a host of other names listed as questionable this week we’ll need to keep an eye on. Running back JK Dobbins is expected to return, but is questionable and the Ravens have been cautious with him. Meanwhile, the Bucs wide receiver depth chart remains a mess with injuries and they’ll be waiting for word on Julio Jones, Breshad Perriman, and Russell Gage.

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.
