Jacksonville Jaguars at Kansas City Chiefs
1:00 PM ET
ARROWHEAD STADIUM
KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI

Temp: 63°
Precipitation: Light to Moderate Rain
Wind: 8 mph
Wind Gusts: 13 mph

Fantasy Impact: A lot of posts have been made about the weather, but it looks like much ado about nothing. The worst of the weather will come late morning to early afternoon and then pick up again at night. Expect to see some NFL morning shows getting shots of a drenched sideline reporter, who will mention thunderstorms in the area. The good news is, the worst of it should pass by the time the game kicks off although thunderstorms will be in the area and the field will be wet.

It won’t be ideal with rain expected throughout the game, but the weather won’t be bad enough to predictably alter the game. You might see some extra slips here and there depending on how much rain actually hits the field before and during the game, but it’s just not enough to get cute with benching normal starters.

This will be the toughest test for Patrick Mahomes. If he and the Kansas City’s offense struggle, it’s far more likely to be because of Jacksonville’s elite defense than the weather. If Blake Bortles struggles, it’s because he’s Blake Bortles. If you’re undecided between two players and one is in this game then, sure, skip on the guy in this game but don’t get cute. Play your normal starters. If you liked the opportunity for a player in DFS, then enjoy what will sure to be lowered ownership because of the weather.
