WEATHER

There will be no impact from Hurrican Dorian on any games this weekend.

It will be warm and humid in Florida today but we do not expect any problems because of it in the Chiefs at Jaguars or Ravens at Dolphins. If anything, given the conditions, it should favor the offense as the defense will have trouble keeping up due to the conditions.

Drizzle is expected in Seattle where Cincinnati visits which could mean a slick ball and a few more fumbles but there should be no issues with wind.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

* The Antonio Brown saga has either come to a close or maybe he’s just getting started? Either way, he’s with New England now and the rich just got richer.

* K Mike Badgley, LAC is not expected to play today. The Chargers did not make a waiver move and instead will use their punter for all kicks assuming Badgley can’t go. It likely means that the Chargers will be going for 2 points a lot more and will attempt more 4th down plays.

* RB Melvin Gordon, LAC is not expected to report somewhere between Weeks 6 – 8. This is starting to smell like Le’Veon Bell part deux.

* RB LeSean McCoy, KC is expected to have a heavy role today making him flex worthy in fantasy.

* RB Adrian Peterson, WAS is expected to be benched today. Wendell Smallwood will take over for him but it’s Derrius Guice that will get most of the carries.

* WR Stefon Diggs, MIN has been hampered all week but is expected to play. However, we’re expecting Minnesota to not push him and his history while playing hurt has produced very poor numbers. Unless you’re very thin at the position, you may want to explore a Plan B this week.

* WR Mike Evans, TB came down with a stomach bug that had been going through the team and missed practice Friday but he is expected to be ready today in what should be a cupcake matchup for him. Play him.
