The weather is starting to take a turn for the worse as temperatures begin to dip all over America. Luckily, we may avoid any serious issues for another week or two. With the Panthers, Browns, Steelers, and Buccaneers on bye it’s a bit of a smaller slate. Before we dive into the forecasts, be sure to check out Pat Daugherty's Week 7 Rankings.
Wet Weather Expected
San Francisco at Washington (1:00 PM ET): The undefeated 49ers hit the road against a disastrous Redskins team this week. 11 MPH winds are expected but won't be an issue unless it reaches 15 MPH or more. There is expected to be rain throughout the game, but nothing that should alter either team’s gameplans or impact passing. Unless wind speeds are dramatically higher than what’s projected, start all players from this one as normal.
Baltimore at Seattle (4:25 PM ET): This game has sneaky shootout potential with both defenses still carrying a “tough” household brand but in reality have been struggling. Light rain is expected throughout the game but not enough to make too much of a difference. It’s something to keep an eye on heading into game time but nothing I would alter my current decisions on.

Miami at Buffalo (1:00 PM ET): The Bills are 17-point favorites with Josh Allen at quarterback, what a time to be alive. 56-degree temperatures, overcast skies, and eight MPH winds are expected which means all fantasy relevant players are good to go.
Jacksonville at Cincinnati (1:00 PM ET): After taking one on the chin last week against New Orleans, Gardner Minshew is in a juicy bounce-back spot against the Bengals. Both teams will enjoy some of the best weather of the week with 65-degree temperatures, mostly cloudy skies and a light breeze in the forecast.
Arizona at NY Giants (1:00 PM ET): Daniel Jones matching up against Kyler Murray doesn’t sound exciting to the casual fan but I’m personally ecstatic. There should be lots of scoring and fantasy goodness to go around. 58-degree temperatures and overcast skies shouldn’t affect anyone. Fire up all fantasy options from this one.
Oakland at Green Bay (1:00 PM ET): The Raiders travel to Green Bay coming off their bye and will get to play in mild weather. Lucky for them, 53-degree temperatures with mostly cloudy skies and four MPH winds are expected.
LA Chargers at Tennessee (4:05 PM ET): This matchup figures to be one of the slowest of the week but the weather will at least be nice. These teams will enjoy the hottest weather of the week with 75-degree temperatures and mostly cloudy skies expected. Start all of your studs from this one.
New Orleans at Chicago (4:25 PM ET): “The Windy City” is only expected to see seven MPH winds, 57-degree temperatures, and partly cloudy skies. All fantasy options can be started as usual.
New England at NY Jets (8:15 PM ET, Monday): The Patriots have been punishing bad teams this season, and that’s expected to continue in this one. 58-degree temperatures with partly cloudy skies and a three MPH breeze is in the forecast. Tom Terrific and the gang should be started as normal.
