Earlier than we get into the video games with even reasonable points, we all the time like to focus on the video games being performed in really best situations (i.e. in stadiums with a roof). This week, Jaguars-Colts is the one recreation to have that luxurious, however given the shortage of main points elsewhere across the league, there is not any want to focus on kickers from that recreation just because it is being performed indoors.

That is probably not an enormous deal, however it’s mildly noteworthy that a number of the coldest areas — Lions-Bears in Chicago, Cowboys-Eagles in Philadelphia, Dolphins-Packers in Inexperienced Bay, Falcons-Browns in Cleveland, and Saints-Bengals in Cincinnati all characteristic visiting groups that play in domes or warm-weather climates. Does that actually have an effect on NFL gamers? Possibly not simply the chilly, however the mixture of merely being on the street and taking part in on pure grass in some cases and coping with temps within the 30s or 40s can all add as much as a variable that slows down offenses.
To be clear, we’re not saying you need to bench Matt Ryan or Drew Brees or Ezekiel Elliott — and even Kenyan Drake and Kenny Golladay when you had been planning on beginning them — however it’s nonetheless an element to consider, maybe extra with betting than fantasy.
Among the many aforementioned video games, the Lions-Bears and Falcons-Browns ought to see winds within the 10-15-mph vary. The Chargers-Raiders may see related winds, too, however that is not an actual concern for any of these contests.
