Because of this, the team is expected to activate Kendall Hinton from the practice team to be a quarterback on Week 12. Below you will find answers to any questions you may have about how this will affect your ESPN fantasy football team and / or league.
1. How does ESPN handle Kendall Hinton eligibility?
