Not an awful weather day, but a couple games where the weather is less than ideal…
NE @ BUF – Decent swath of rain moving in to BUF later this morning. Steady moderate to light rainfall looks likely for the early portion of the game. We will see this system slowly clear through the game, by the 2nd half it should be dry or mostly dry. Winds are also slightly elevated, around 10-15mph sustained. I’m going to give a bit of a bump down to kickers here, not impossible kicking weather, but far from perfect with a potentially slick field. I suppose we could see some impact on offense, but rain doesn’t usually impact fantasy scoring as much as people think.
NYJ @ CLE – Heaviest of the rain moving in to CLE now, with lighter rain still lingering by kickoff. Similar scenario as in BUF, but I do expect the rain here to clear/dry out a bit quicker than in Buffalo. Light rain likely early, dry or mostly dry by the 2nd half. Winds in the 10-15mph range. Slight bump down to kickers.
OAK @ TB – Sustained winds around 10mph, not quite enough to factor in to any decision making.
MIN @ CHI – A little on the windy side. Sustained winds around 10mph, but stronger gusts could reach 20mph or even a little higher. Slight bump down to kickers.
