FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 12 WEATHER ISSUES: RAIN AND SNOW HERE TO STAY

The weather has been a constant theme this week in fantasy football as a massive blizzard in Buffalo forced the postponement and rescheduling of the Bills' game versus the New York Jets to be moved to Monday night in Detroit.  There is also some other storm systems that will be impacting games this week after a huge rainstorm helped the Oakland Raiders slow the Kansas City Chiefs in their upset.  Let's take a look.

Denver Broncos VS. Miami Dolphins:  The winds will be whipping in Denver which could make the kicking game very tough and the passing game somewhat of a challenge.  Right now forecasts call for winds in the 25-35 mph range which means those who own Caleb Sturgis and Brandon McManus should stream someone else there.  Peyton Manning we know does not have nearly the arm he used to so throwing downfield to Demaryuis Thomas could be tough.  Same deal with Ryan Tannehill to Mike Wallace.  Look for lots of underneath stuff which means my new favorite Jarvis Landy for Miami could be a nice PPR play again.  Wes Welker also takes on added importance, especially if Emmanuel Sanders has to sit with his concussion.

Chicago Bears VS. Tampa Bay Buccaneers:  Rain is forecast for an unseasonably balmy day in Chicago.  Temperatures will be around 50 as rain will develop early in the afternoon and pick up as the day goes on.  The game here is scheduled for 1:00 so the intensity may not be so bad early.  Jay Cutler's more powerful arm should much more be able to overcome any issues with a slick ball.

New York Giants VS. Dallas Cowboys:  Rain will also be a problem in New York as the Giants gear up to face the Dallas Cowboys.  The rain is supposed to be heavy Sunday night into Monday so a heavy does of the running game is expected in this game.
