Week 13 inactives

The following is a list of inactive players for Week 13 (December 2-3) and all the fantasy implications:

Dec. 3, 8:30pm EST

Baltimore Ravens
Inactives: RB Mike Anderson, DB Gerome Sapp, T Jared Gaither, TE Todd Heap, WR Demetrius Williams, LB Edgar Jones, DT Zarnell Fitch.

Fantasy take: CBs Chris McAlister and Samari Rolle are both active, which is good news for the Baltimore defense. TEs Quinn Sypniewski and Daniel Wilcox will see more time with Heap inactive.

New England Patriots
Inactives: QB Matt Gutierrez (3rd QB), WR Chad Jackson, FS Eugene Wilson, DB Eddie Jackson, T Wesley Britt, G Billy Yates, WR Troy Brown, LB Chad Brown.

8:15pm EST

Pittsburgh Steelers
Inactives: LB Arnold Harrison, WR Santonio Holmes, C Marvin Philip, S Troy Polamalu, QB Brian St. Pierre (3rd QB), T Marvel Smith, G Darnell Steapleton.

Fantasy take: WRs Cedrick Wilson and Nate Washington will see more work with Holmes inactive. The Steelers defense remains a solid option even without Polamalu.

Arizona Cardinals
Inactives: QB Tim Hasselbeck (3rd QB), WR Larry Fitzgerald, FB Tim Castille, DB Aaron Francisco, T Elton Brown, WR Jerheme Urban, DE Bo Schobel, DT Ross Kolodziej.

Fantasy take: WR Bryant Johnson will start with Fitzgerald inactive. He's a viable No. 3 fantasy wideout. Look for WR Anquan Boldin to post a monster stat line.

Chicago Bears
Inactives:QB Kyle Orton (3rd QB), CB Nathan Vasher, LB Nick Roach, LB Darrell McClover, G Josh Beekman, WR Mike Hass, DE Antonio Garay.

Fantasy take: The absence of Vasher is good news for the Giants wide receivers.

Cleveland Browns
Inactives: QB Ken Dorsey (3rd QB), CB Eric Wright, DB Ricardo Colclough, G Isaac Sowells, C Greg Eslinger, NT Ethan Kelley, WR Travis Wilson, DE Orpheus Roye.

Fantasy take: WR Braylon Edwards is active and will start in Arizona.

Inactives: WR Steve Smith, QB Jared Lorenzen (3rd QB), RB Brandon Jacobs, FS Gibril Wilson, CB Aaron Ross, T Adam Koets, G Kevin Boothe, DT Russell Davis.

Fantasy take: RB Derrick Ward is active and will start in Chicago. He's a nice fantasy sleeper this week. WR Plaxico Burress is also active.

Oakland Raiders
Inactives: QB Daunte Culpepper, QB Andrew Walter (3rd QB), RB Dominic Rhodes, CB John Bowie, DB Jarrod Cooper, C Jake Grove, T Seth Wand, DT Josh Shaw.

Fantasy take: QB Josh McCown will start with Culpepper out. QB JaMarcus Russell could even see some work this week. RB LaMont Jordan seems to have moved past Rhodes, who is inactive.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Inactives: QB Jeff Garcia (3rd QB), WR Micheal Spurlock, RB Lionel Gates, LB Jeremiah Trotter, G Dan Buenning, TE Keith Heinrich, DE Greg Spires, DT Greg Peterson.

Fantasy take: QB Luke McCown will start with Garcia listed as the third quarterback.

1pm EST

Atlanta Falcons
Inactives: QB Byron Leftwich (3rd QB), RB Artose Pinner, FS Jimmy Williams, RB Corey McIntyre, G Kynan Forney, DT Jesse Mahelona, T Harvey Dahl, OL Todd Weiner.

Fantasy take: WR Joe Horn is active, but he has no real value in fantasy football circles. TE Alge Crumpler is also active, but he's no more than a borderline No. 1 fantasy tight end.

Buffalo Bills
Inactives: QB Gibran Hamdan (3rd QB), RB Marshawn Lynch, LB Coy Wire, RB Anthony Thomas, DB Jerametrius Butler, TE Brad Cieslak, OL Christian Gaddis, DE Chris Kelsay.

Fantasy take: RB Fred Jackson will start with both Lynch and Thomas out.

Carolina Panthers
Inactives: QB David Carr (3rd QB), WR Dwayne Jarrett, OL Evan Mathis, OL Frank Omiyale, DT Gary Gibson, DE Charles Johnson, LB James Anderson, DB C.J. Wilson.

Fantasy take: QB Vinny Testaverde is active and will start against San Francisco, which is good news for the value of WR Steve Smith. Carr has fallen to second behind QB Matt Moore on the depth chart.

Detroit Lions
Inactives: QB Dan Orlovsky (3rd QB), DB Greg Blue, RB Tatum Bell, DB Dovonte Edwards, FB Jon Bradley, OT Barry Stokes, G Manny Ramirez, DE Ikaika Alama-Francis.

Fantasy take: RB T.J. Duckett will see more carries behind RB Kevin Jones with Bell listed as inactive.

Houston Texans
Inactives: DB Dexter Wynn , RB Ahman Green , LB Danny Clark , TE Jeb Putzier , RB Darius Walker , WR David Anderson.

Fantasy take: RB Ron Dayne will start in the continued absence of Green. WR Andre Johnson is active and will start.

Indianapolis Colts
Inactives: WR Craphonso Thorpe, CB Tim Jennings, DB Brannon Condren, T Ryan Diem, T Daniel Federkeil, WR Marvin Harrison, DT Dan Klecko.

Fantasy take: WR Anthony Gonzalez will start with Harrison inactive for another week. T Tony Ugoh is active, but the loss of Diem hurts the Colts' offensive line.

Jacksonville Jaguars
Inactives: QB Quinn Gray (3rd QB), WR John Broussard, RB LaBrandon Toefield, DB Aaron Glenn, DB Lamont Thompson, LB Mike Peterson, T Richard Collier, T Tutan Reyes, DE Kenneth Pettway.

Fantasy take: WR Dennis Northcutt is active, but he has limited value in the world of fantasy football. CB Rashean Mathis is also active for the Jaguars.

Kansas City Chiefs
Inactives: QB Brodie Croyle (3rd QB), RB Larry Johnson, CB Rashad Barksdale, T Chris Terry, WR Eddie Drummond, DT James Reed, LB Keyaron Fox, LB Kendrell Bell.

Fantasy take: QB Damon Huard will start with Croyle listed as inactive. RB Kolby Smith will continue to start in the absence of Johnson and is a viable No. 2 fantasy back.

Miami Dolphins
Inactives: WR Kerry Reed, DB Jereme Perry, DB Tuff Harris, LB Zach Thomas, DT Anthony Bryant, DE Derrek Robinson, T Anthony Alabi, DE Rob Ninkovich.

Fantasy take: RB Jesse Chatman is active and will start against a weak Jets run defense. The absence of Thomas makes Jets RB Thomas Jones more attractive.

Minnesota Vikings
Inactives: QB Kelly Holcomb (3rd QB), DB Tank Williams, CB Antoine Winfield, TE Garrett Mills, LB Dontarrious Thomas, DT Conrad Bolston, T Chase Johnson, WR Troy Williamson.

Fantasy take: RB Adrian Peterson is active and should be in fantasy starting lineups across the board. However, his presence makes RB Chester Taylor much less attractive. WR Sidney Rice will see more work with Williamson inactive, so he's a nice low-end sleeper.

New York Jets
Inactives: QB Marques Tuiasosopo, CB Andre Dyson, DE Mike Devito, T Jacob Bender, T Adrian Jones, TE Jason Pociask, WR Jerricho Cotchery, DT Kareem Brown.

Fantasy take: WR Laveranues Coles is active and will start in Miami. WRs Justin McCareins and Brad Smith will see more work with Cotchery out of action.

Philadelphia Eagles
Inactives: QB Donovan McNabb, FS Quintin Mikell, RB Tony Hunt, G Max Jean-Gilles, G Scott Young, T William Thomas, DE Victor Abiamiri, DE Montae Reagor, DT Brodrick Bunkley.

Fantasy take: QB A.J. Feeley will start for another week with McNabb out of action. RB Brian Westbrook is active and will start.

San Diego Chargers
Inactives: QB Charlie Whitehurst (3rd QB), CB Paul Oliver, FB Andrew Pinnock, LB Anthony Waters, T Roman Oben, WR Malcom Floyd, TE Scott Chandler, DT Luis Castillo.

Fantasy take: The continued absence of Castillo hurt the Chargers' run defense and makes Chiefs RB Kolby Smith more attractive as a fantasy starter.

San Francisco 49ers
Inactives: QB Alex Smith, WR LeRon McCoy, CB Marcus Hudson, CB Shawntae Spencer, T Patrick Estes, DL Atiyyah Ellison, WR Jason Hill, DE Ray McDonald.

Fantasy take: QB Trent Dilfer will make another start with Smith listed as inactive. RB Frank Gore is active and will start in Carolina.

Seattle Seahawks
Inactives: WR D.J. Hackett, FB David Kirtman, DE Jason Babin, LB Will Herring, G Mansfield Wrotto, T Ray Willis, DT Howard Green.

Fantasy take: QB Matt Hasselbeck and RBs Shaun Alexander and Maurice Morris are all active. The weather could be bad in Philadelphia, so start Hasselbeck with caution. Alexander is a risk-reward fantasy starter, while Morris should be reserved. WRs Nate Burleson and Bobby Engram will see more work with Hackett out.

St. Louis Rams
Inactives: QB Marc Bulger, WR Marques Hagans (3rd QB), DB Eric Bassey, C Brett Romberg, T Mark LeVoir, WR Dante Hall, TE Dominique Byrd, DE James Hall.

Fantasy take: QB Gus Frerotte will start with Bulger out of action.

Tennessee Titans
Inactives: DB Chris Hope , WR Paul Williams , WR Chris Davis , DB Kelly Herndon , TE Casey Cramer , DL Sean Conover , DL Travis LaBoy.

Fantasy take: DT Albert Haynesworth is active for the Titans, which is bad news for the value of Texans RB Ron Dayne.

Washington Redskins
Inactives: QB Mark Brunell (3rd QB), DB David Macklin, FB Mike Sellers, LB Matt Sinclair, DT Ryan Boschetti, G Randy Thomas, WR Antwaan Randle El, WR James Thrash.
