Weather continues to be largely a non-factor this season and with a number of teams either on bye or playing indoors this week, there shouldn’t be a whole lot to worry about in Week 11. Before we dive into the forecast for each game be sure to check out Pat Daugherty's Week 11 Rankings.
Windy Weather Watch
Houston at Baltimore (1:00 PM ET): Neither game in this section is expected to see wind speeds of 15+ MPH but both will be very close. This means it’s important to keep an eye out for these games before the game and make sure nothing has changed. Even in the 15-20 MPH wind range, I’m still starting Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson with confidence. The forecast calls for 39-degree temperatures and overcast skies otherwise.
New England at Philadelphia (4:25 PM ET): The rematch of the 2018 Super Bowl should be interesting with both teams coming off the bye. 43-degree temperatures, overcast skies, and 13 MPH winds won’t cause any issues for the time being. Given the difficult matchup, Carson Wentz should probably be on your bench and that decision would be even easier if wind speeds increase prior to game time.

Atlanta at Carolina (1:00 PM ET): The Falcons travel to Carolina after a resounding road win over the Saints last week. Neither team will be impacted by the weather as 45-degree temperatures, mostly cloudy skies, and 11 MPH winds are expected.
Buffalo at Miami (1:00 PM ET): The Dolphins are on a two-game heater and now host the Buffalo Bills. 69-degree temperatures, clear skies, and eight MPH winds are expected in this divisional matchup. Start everyone you were planning on from this one.
NY Jets at Washington (1:00 PM ET): I can’t imagine anyone would purposely spend their time watching this game if they weren't starting someone from their fantasy team or put money on it. Both teams have been dreadful this season but luckily will enjoy relatively mild weather. 39-degree temperatures with overcast skies and 11 MPH winds are expected.
New Orleans at Tampa Bay (1:00 PM ET): Is this another trap game for the Saints? Only time will tell for sure but both teams will enjoy 61-degree temperatures with partly cloudy skies and eight MPH winds.
Arizona at San Francisco (1:00 PM ET): The 49ers are heavy favorites despite suffering a number of injuries. Beautiful California weather is expected in this one with 72-degree temperatures, clear skies, and three MPH winds are in the forecast. Start all your studs from this one.
Cincinnati at Oakland (1:00 PM ET): I didn’t think the Raiders would ever be 10-point favorites in the Jon Gruden-era but here we are. The forecast calls for 71-degree temperatures, four MPH winds, and clear skies. Fire up your fantasy starters from this one.
Chicago at LA Rams (1:00 PM ET): First-round bust Mitch Trubisky takes his subpar play to Los Angeles to square off against another post-hype struggler in the Rams. This game is expected to see the hottest weather of the week with 82-degree temperatures, clear skies, and five MPH winds. Those in Chicago have long forgotten what 80 degrees feels like at this point in the year but it shouldn’t impact any Bears players at all.
Kansas City at LA Chargers (1:00 PM ET): This divisional matchup will be played in Mexico where there are no weather concerns. 65-degree temperatures and mostly cloudy skies are nothing to worry about in comparison to the altitude. Teams struggle to play in Denver due to the altitude but Estadio Azteca in Mexico City is nearly 2000 feet higher. Conditioning will undoubtedly be a factor here.
Home Teams are Dome Teams
Three games will be played indoors this week including the divisional matchup between the Jaguars and Colts.
Dallas at Detroit (1:00 PM ET)
Jacksonville at Indianapolis (1:00 PM ET)
Denver at Minnesota (1:00 PM ET)
