Both have recently returned from injury with Yarde starting his first match for London Irish on Saturday since November and Tuilagi playing 69 minutes against Newcastle on Sunday.
Lancaster has gone with a settled team for the 2014 Six Nations and has named the same set of backs for their three games to date. If Tuilagi, who on Sunday declared himself fit for England duty, returns then it will be at the expense of Luther Burrell or Billy Twelvetrees while Yarde will hope to displace either Jonny May or Jack Nowell.
