Last minute fantasy football start/sit advice as Week 1 inactives come in

We break down the last minute fantasy football decisions you have to make in light of Week 1 inactive reports.

The 2023 NFL season is officially underway. The Lions upset the Chiefs in Thursday’s opener, and while it was a big win, it helped that tight end Travis Kelce was unable to play. He was a game-day decision, but it was not surprising when the Chiefs promoted another tight end and deactivated their All Pro tight end.

We’re back for a full Sunday slate and there are plenty of fantasy decisions to be made. There are some notable injury issues and so we’ll be tracking all of them as fantasy football managers prepare their lineups for Sunday’s slate.

The biggest names on the final injury reports heading into Sunday are tight ends with George Kittle, Darren Waller, and Mark Andrews all listed as questionable. Wide receiver Cooper Kupp was also questionable, but he has since been placed on IR. Running back Zack Moss was listed as questionable on the final injury report but was downgraded to doubtful on Saturday.

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.
