The following is a list of inactive players for Week 1 (Sept. 9, 10) and the fantasy implications of all the major absences:
Monday, Sept. 10
Inactives:FB Tim Castille , LB Brandon Johnson , C Nick Leckey , DT Alan Branch , WR Jerheme Urban , DE Quentin Moses , DT Ross Kolodziej
8 p.m. ET
4 p.m. ET
Fantasy take: Jones is inactive as expected. Tatum Bell will start, and is a nice No. 3 fantasy back. T.J. Duckett will see short-yardage and goal-line work.
Inactives: CB John Bowie, LB Isaiah Ekejiuba, T Mario Henderson, C Chris Morris, CB Duane Starks, WR Travis Taylor, QB Andrew Walter (3rd QB).
Fantasy take: Rookie Craig Davis will start in Parker's place. Michael Turner is active, and will back up LaDainian Tomlinson.
1 p.m. EST
Fantasy take: Williams is inactive, so Dennis Northcutt, Ernest Wilford and Matt Jones will see most of the wideout work. None of the trio should start outside of larger fantasy leagues.
Kansas City Chiefs
Inactives: TE Michael Allan, LB Johnny Baldwin, CB Rashad Barksdale, RB Boomer Grigsby, LB Nate Harris, DB Jon McGraw, T Herbert Taylor, QB Tyler Thigpen.
Inactives: QB John Beck (3rd QB), RB Lorenzo Booker, DB Courtney Bryan, DT Steve Fifita, CB Andre' Goodman, LB Abraham Wright, DT Rodrique Wright.
Inactives: DB Mike Doss, WR Robert Ferguson, QB Kelly Holcomb, DE Erasmus James, T Chase Johnson, TE Garrett Mills, DE Jayme Mitchell, RB Mewelde Moore.
New England Patriots
Inactives: DB Rashad Baker, T Wesley Britt, DT Kareem Brown, QB Matt Gutierrez, LB David Herron, TE David Thomas, DT Mike Wright, G Billy Yates.
New York Jets
Inactives: RB Darian Barnes, T Jacob Bender, DE Mike Devito, CB Andre Dyson, TE Jason Pociask, DB Eric Smith, WR Chansi Stuckey.
Inactives: DB Ricardo Colclough, LB Marquis Cooper, T Trai Essex, LB Arnold Harrison, WR Willie Reid, RB Gary Russell, CG Darnell Stapleton, QB Brian St. Pierre (3rd QB).
Inactives: RB Casey Cramer, WR Biren Ealy, WR Justin Gage, C Leroy Harris, RB Chris Henry, CB Reynaldo Hill, DT Jesse Mahelona.
Fantasy take: Wade's absence will be felt on the offensive line, but it doesn't hurt the value of their skill position players. Clinton Portis is active and will start, but Ladell Betts could see more work out of the backfield.
