The following is a list of inactive players for Week 7 (October 21-22) and the fantasy implications of all the major absences:
Oct. 29, 8:30pm EST
Inactives: RB Travis Henry, WR Javon Walker, RB Mike Bell, DT Amon Gordon, DE Jarvis Moss, DB Jeff Shoate, DT Isaac Snell
Fantasy take: Donald Lee will see more work at tight end with Frank inactive. DeShawn Wynn is active and will start. CBs Al Harris and Charles Woodson are both active as well.
Fantasy take: Ron Dayne will start in the absence of Green. Kevin Walter and Andre Davis will start at wide receiver with Johnson out. Matt Schaub is active, but he's not a recommended fantasy option this week.
Fantasy take: Laurence Maroney is active and will start. Kevin Faulk and Heath Evans will share carries in the New England backfield. Kyle Brady will start with Watson inactive.
Fantasy take: Earnest Graham will start in the absence of Pittman. Maurice Stovall will see more work with Clayton out. Jerramy Stevens has added value with Smith sidelined.
Inactives: DT Ryan Boschetti, QB Mark Brunell (3rd QB), WR Reche Caldwell, RB Rock Cartwright, T Rick DeMulling, OT Stephon Heyer, DB Fred Smoot, G Randy Thomas.
Fantasy take: DeShaun Foster is active and will start. Morgan's absence hurts the value of the what is an injury-riddled Carolina defense.
Inactives: QB Ken Dorsey (3rd QB), DB Kenny Wright, DB Nick Sorensen, G Isaac Sowells, T Nat Dorsey, WR Travis Wilson, NT Ted Washington, DT Louis Leonard
Fantasy take: Jamal Lewis is active and should be considered a nice option against a weak St. Louis run defense. His presence hurts the value of Jason Wright, however.
Inactives: WR Marvin Harrison, CB Michael Coe, DB Matt Giordano, LB Victor Worsley, LB Freddie Keiaho, DE Jeff Charleston, T Tony Ugoh, Quinn Pitcock
Inactives: TE David Martin, S Travares Tillman, LB Zach Thomas, DT Anthony Bryant, DL Vonnie Holliday, DT Sam Rayburn, S Lance Schulters, DE Quentin Moses, TE Aaron Halterman
Fantasy take: Justin Peelle wills start in the absence of Martin. The Miami defense loses value with Thomas on the sidelines.
Fantasy take: Dawkins will miss another week, but the Philadelphia defense remains an attractive fantasy option in Week 8.
St. Louis Rams
Inactives: WR Marques Hagans (3rd QB), WR Travis Taylor, RB Antonio Pittman, DB Bhawoh Jue, LB Quinton Culberson, C Brett Romberg, WR Dante Hall, DE Leonard Little
Fantasy take: Vince Young is active and will start against Oakland. The absence of Brown means more carries for LenDale White and Chris Henry. Roydell Williams will start at wide receiver with Jones inactive.
