The good news is the weather will be a lot nicer than it was last week, but a few games have really borderline winds. I normally don’t get too tied up with winds until I see 20 mph sustained winds and gusts in the 28-30 mph range. No games are projected to have winds that strong luckily, but a few of them are fairly close.

Follow me @FF_Gouge and look for Mike on Periscope leading up to the games in case any forecasts take a turn for the worse.

Carolina Panthers at New York Jets
1:00 PM ET
METLIFE STADIUM
EAST RUTHERFORD, NEW JERSEY

Temp: 45°
Precipitation: None
Wind: 14 mph
Wind Gusts: 22 mph

Fantasy Impact: My ‘go-to’ weather sites didn’t agree on the winds and my tie-breaker site landed somewhere in the middle. Two forecasts, including the one I used for the winds above, are fine but my concern is the outlier forecast that called for 24 mph winds. Winds that high would definitely steer me clear of the passing attacks and kickers for both Carolina and New York.  It’s rare to have this much disagreement on a forecast so I’m going to be watching the forecasts closely Sunday morning. I wouldn’t change rankings or actively avoid players in this game, but the breezy conditions are enough to tip a close start/sit decision in favor of players not in this game. Have a backup plan if you were thinking of plugging Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, or Devin Funchess into the lineup. Don’t sweat it too much if you have to play one of them.

Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots
1:00 PM ET
GILLETTE STADIUM
FOXBORO, MASSACHUSETTS

Temp: 45°
Precipitation: None
Wind: 15 mph
Wind Gusts: 24 mph

Fantasy Impact: This is yet another game with very borderline wind conditions, but forecasts agree. It would still be prudent to track this game closely leading up to the game.

Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders
4:05 PM ET
OAKLAND COLISEUM
OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA

Temp: 61°

Fantasy Impact: Conditions might look sloppy at kickoff, but winds and precipitation will taper off as the game progresses. We have a lot of new variables with a new defensive coordinator in Oakland, new offensive coordinator in Denver, and Paxton Lynch starting at QB. I’d focus more on untangling that plate of spaghetti before worrying too much about a little rain.
