The game in Florida on Thursday night will be played in perfect conditions. Aside from the two teams involved, I wish I could be in attendance. Actually, I was being too hard on Carolina, they seem inspired but the RBBC will only get worse once Stewart returns. Tampa Bay, on the other hand, may be every bit as bad as Jacksonville, with a head coach problem to boot.
UPDATE: Nothing much to worry about this week, aside from the potential rain and definite windy conditions in London for the 49er/Jaguar match up. The rest of the games have very nice conditions. You really weren't going to play any Jags this week except their WRs and MJD anyway, and SF is a decent play every week, conme wind, rain or snow.
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.
Good luck and godspeed in your fantasy endeavors. If you have a fantasy question, shoot it my way at email@example.com and I will do my best to assist you.
