The Thursday Night game, like last week's game, will be played in near perfect conditions.  No reason to adjust your rosters based on the foibles of nature's whims here.

As I will be in Arizona watching Arizona Fall League baseball games this weekend, I have taken the liberty of publishing early forecasts for all games.  I am certain I will have time to update the prognostications before Saturday evening, but I wanted to get the preliminary information out to our readers just in case.

UPDATE:  It now looks like there will be no snow in Buffalo, but conditions will be chilly.  No real concerns about the wind this week.  Rain may affect things in Seattle (huge surprise) and Green Bay, so plan accordingly.  The rest of the games don't have any major surprises, as we should expect things to get less temperate as we hit November.

As always, good luck and Godspeed in your fantasy endeavors.  If you have a fantasy question, feel free to drop me a line at  or post a comment and I will do my best to provide guidance.

About Ivar G. Anderson

I have actively played fantasy sports since 2004, when I was roped into competing in an auto-pick football league on Yahoo. My devotion, and number of teams has continued to grow to the present. I began writing about fantasy sports for FantasyGameday in 2008, and was recruited to join the FantasyAlarm team in 2011, where I cover Starting Pitching on the baseball side of things, and publish a weekly IDP Report and NFL Weather Report weekly during the football season.
