For the majority of us fantasy football players, our league wrapped up last Sunday night, with the conclusion of the Week 16 games. There are some leagues, however, that run through Week 17 (I play in one such league and am trying to win it all for once) and for those of you who must field a team on Sunday, here are this week's forecasts.

Please note that there are five dome games this week, which takes some of the guesswork out of the equation of who to start, weather-wise if not the fear that your studs will sit after the first set of downs. No early games, either, so this is the definitive post regarding weather conditions.

Not thinking I envy the fans watching the Bills take on the Jets, sitting in the snow and blustery cold conditions. Heck, even San Diego doesn't look all that inviting with the rain and 50° temps. I wouldn't expect a lot out of the Dolphins, heading to Foxboro to play in potentially snowy and definitely cold weather, but I wouldn't expect the weather to affect the Patriots much. Nothing to be concerned about with the rest of Sunday's games, though, although if the teams have nothing to play for, don't expect great fantasy numbers.
Good luck if you are still competing for the league title, but you should really consider ending your seasons with the Week 16 match ups. Just sayin'.
