Thursday's game was played in a dome in the desert, so no reason to post the weather forecast early this week. We will see another 3 games played protected from the weather on Sunday, but that leaves us with 12 games that could be affected by the elements.
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.
Here are the forecasts as of Saturday morning. Keep you eye out for late alterations in the weather conditions on Sunday and Monday evening.

It is shaping up to be a really good day for football. With the exception of the near certainty of rain in Green Bay, we only have to worry about a possibility of precepitation in Florida where Jacksonville and the Dolphins play this Sunday. Personally, I am not making any lineup adjustments based on weather conditions this week. Your milage may vary, of course.
