NFL Week 2 Weather Updates: Rain, wind could affect fantasy start 'em, sit 'em decisions

  NFL Week 2 Weather Updates: Rain, wind could affect fantasy start 'em, sit 'em decisions Rain and wind are in the forecast for a few games this week, but it looks like fantasy football owners will get off easy. With an assist from meteorologist Kevin Roth at RotoGrinders, we look at the most worrisome Week 2 NFL weather forecasts.Before we get into the forecasts, we'd be remiss if we didn't point out that if you have any questions about sports weather or how weather could impact play (and, potentially, your fantasy, DFS, and gambling decisions), don't hesitate to reach out to Rotogrinders' meteorologist Kevin Roth on Twitter (@KevinRothWx) or check out the hourly NFL weather forecasts on RotoGrinders.

Week 4 of fantasy football can be subtitled, ''Life Without Saquon'' for owners who must reset their Winston tossed for 380 yards and three touchdowns against the Giants last week, but averages a paltry 2.5 air yards per pass attempt, a number that plays into the hands of the Rams' pass rush.

Each week , we're listing players to start or sit in fantasy football . We try to avoid obvious players , such as starts who you will likely play every week , regardless of matchups. Why you should start him: Goff hasn't been playing his best football , and it's understandable if fantasy GMs want to sit him.

With the regular season already reaching Week 4, one trend is evident: 2020 will be the year of the fantasy quarterback.

Injuries to Christian McCaffrey and Saquon Barkley — the top two picks in most drafts — along with the sluggish starts by Ezekiel Elliott and Josh Jacobs have resulted in slow starts for those owners who selected running backs early.

Granted, there’s plenty of season left, yet most fantasy owners who hit it big at QB have taken advantage of their good fortune.

Week 4 will continue to hammer home the point of having a consistent fantasy producer at the position, so much so that some streaming options have the chance to thrive.

START: Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Dolphins: Having accounted for five touchdowns (one rushing) in his past two games, Fitzpatrick gets a Week 4 matchup against a Seahawks pass defence that allows the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. Expect Fitzpatrick to take his share of downfield shots on a defence that has given up the most air yards in the league (936).

SIT: Carson Wentz, QB, Eagles: Wentz has already thrown six interceptions, one fewer than his entire 2019 total. Even with injured WRs DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery expected to return to the lineup, Wentz is in a tough situation on Sunday night against a 49ers pass defence that has allowed a league-low two touchdowns while also ranking second only to the Colts in fewest passing yards allowed.

NFL Week 3 Weather Updates: Strong wind could impact fantasy start 'em, sit 'em decisions

Fantasy football starts and sits for Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season. NFL football is officially back and, with Week 1 behind us, many fantasy football managers are beginning to see These decisions are going to be tougher than usual because we haven't seen anyone play in an NFL game yet this year.

START: James Robinson, RB, Jaguars: Jacksonville has found its lead back, which means Robinson will get a healthy dose of touches versus a Cincinnati defence that is 28th in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing RBs. The Bengals also allow 5 yards per carry, placing them 24th overall and making it a must to install Robinson into lineups in all formats.

SIT: J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ravens: Since scoring twice in Week 1, the rookie has become a non-factor with a combined three carries the past two games. That paltry volume of touches isn’t enough to justify playing Dobbins despite his big-play potential. Add the fact the Washington Football Team does a solid job against pass-catching backs (24 receiving yards allowed per game), it’s time to consider other options.

START: DK Metcalf, WR, Seahawks: Averaging just under 100 receiving yards per game, Metcalf has scored in each of the first three games and will be in line for bigger numbers when he and QB Russell Wilson face a Dolphins secondary that is 28th in yards allowed per reception (12.2). Metcalf also leads the NFL with 19.7 yards before catch per completion.

Don't panic on Russell Wilson just yet. Expect him to put 20+ fantasy points on the Cardinals. Also, Baker Mayfield is good, but should you start him this

SIT: A.J. Green, WR, Bengals: The days of counting on Green as a major contributor are seemingly gone. Green has caught just 46% of his 28 targets and averages just under 37 receiving yards per game. Don’t count on a sudden revival against the Jaguars, who allow the third-fewest yards per game to opposing wideouts at 123.7.

START: Robert Tonyan, TE, Packers: He’s not a familiar name to many fantasy owners, but Tonyan caught all five of his targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday’s win over the Saints. Monday night could be a breakthrough for Tonyan as he gets to contend with a Falcons defence that allows an average of nine catches and 73 yards per game to opposing TEs while also giving up four touchdowns thus far.

SIT: Evan Engram, TE, Giants: Engram has yet to score this season and is averaging just under 9 yards per catch. While he could see an increase of targets against the Rams on Sunday, keep in mind that Los Angeles is 10th overall in fewest yards per game allowed to opposing tight ends.

START: Matthew Stafford, QB, Lions: The Saints are 29th in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks and have already allowed eight touchdown passes. Now is a good time to roll with Stafford, who has thrown two touchdowns in each of his past two games and will have favourite option Kenny Golladay for a second straight game. Don’t be shocked if Stafford is one of the most productive performers in Week 4.

SIT: Joe Mixon, RB, Bengals: Mixon has disappointed his fantasy owners and will continue to do so on Sunday. Jacksonville is ninth in fewest rushing yards allowed per game (82.3), a number that doesn’t bode well for a struggling back who’s averaging just 3.1 yards per carry and has yet to find the end zone.

START: Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Browns: He’s been a major disappointment so far, but that could change when Beckham lines up against a Cowboys defence that’s allowed a league-high nine touchdown passes and is 28th in yards allowed per reception (12.2). OBJ has five career touchdowns in seven previous games against Dallas as a member of the Giants.

SIT: T.Y. Hilton, WR, Colts: Although Hilton leads the team in targets (17), QB Philip Rivers has spread the ball around as four other Colts have at least 10 targets. Hilton has yet to score this season and faces a tough matchup against a Bears pass defence that shares the league lead (49ers) with just two touchdown passes allowed.

START: Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers: Big Ben still has it, as his 7:1 TD:INT total suggests. Even with WR Diontae Johnson (concussion protocol) questionable, Roethlisberger has more than enough playmakers at his disposal when he and the Steelers face a Titans defence that has allowed seven touchdown passes while also ranking 25th in yards per catch allowed (11.9).

SIT: Josh Allen, QB, Bills: Only Dallas’ Dak Prescott has thrown for more yards than Allen’s 1,038, yet this might be a good week to find another option. Allen squares off against a Raiders defence that is sixth in fewest fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks. Las Vegas is also second only to Indianapolis when it comes to fewest air yards allowed, limiting just 286 yards in three games.
