It's Week 3 of the NFL season, and the weather has been an issue in a few games so far. That is more of an impact than I recall seeing in the past years that I've been in charge of the publishing the weather reports.
It's never too early to plan for next week. Check out our Weekly Player Rankings updated throughout the week for who you should sit and start each week throughout the season.
I am only putting in the full details for the Thursday Night game between the visiting Chiefs and the host Eagles, because I don't trust the weather, nor do I particularly have great faith in our weather forecasters. Thus, I update on the weekend to provide the most current reports available. No need to thank me, it's just what I do.

Looks like Thursday's game will be played in almost perfect conditions. Some may quibble about the temperature, but it is an evening game in mid-September. If you've ever endured a humid Philly afternoon, you would appreciate these conditions, I assure you.
These forecasts will be updated on Saturday, so our readers can have at their fingertips the most recent weather reports when setting their fantasy lineups. So make sure you check back on the weekend.
UPDATE: A handful of the Sunday games have seen the forecast improve. We are still looking at rain in Carolina, Foxboro, Miami and Seattle. The only real concern over windy conditions is on the West Coast, in San Fran and Seattle, but that should not be a huge surprise. The Sunday Night and Monday Night games should have excellent conditions for playing some football. You can set your lineups without a whold lot of tredidation over the weather conditions this week.
