It is looking like we will see some snow this week, but nothing to get concerned about.  The weather is getting colder in the North, but a bit of briskness in the air is not generally something to make you alter your lineups.  Anyhoo, here's what is in store for the games to be played this Sunday and Monday (Thursday's game was a dome affair, and thus no need for an early posting this week).

As noted above, there is a chance for white stuff to fall on the field in both Baltimore and Cleveland.  Couple that with windy conditions and I am not real excited about the passing game in those two games.  The two other East Coast match ups also will have breezy conditions, but I fully expect those games to feature plenty of passing, given the teams involved.  Will the wind affect Romo and Eli and their ability to target receivers?  Prolly, given their interception tendencies to date, and that bodes well for the Giant and Cowboy defenses, although Dallas' D is so mediocre, I cannot see a scenario where I would willing roster them.  Miami will be warm, but breezy, with precipitation expected to boot.  Not that I would avoid either team's players, just based on the chance it might rain.  Now, if there were thunderstorms and gale force winds like in Chicago last week, I might have a greater level of concern, but that is not the forecast.  The Packers game is going to played on the "frozen tundra," so expect the broadcasters to play that up a whole bunch, despite the fact that the field prolly isn't that solid yet.  Cold is expected in Green Bay, but it could have an adverse effect on the Vikings offense, especially given how ineffective it has been this season.  I don't see any concerns with the rest of the games this weekend.

As always, good luck and Godspeed in your fantasy endeavors.  My contact information is in my bio below, should you have a fantasy question you want to shoot my way.
