NFL Week 11 Weather Updates: Rain, wind in forecast unlikely to affect fantasy start 'em, sit 'em decisions
There's plenty of rain and some wind in the Week 11 NFL weather forecast. With the help of meteorologist Kevin Roth from RotoGrinders, we break down the key weather updates ahead of your fantasy start 'em, sit 'em decisions.Before we get into the Week 11 forecasts, here's a reminder 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.
Only 11 games remain to determine the final 2021 College Football Playoff pairings. In reality, only four of those will have a direct impact on how the selection committee orders its final four.
The SEC championship game between No. 1 Georgia and No. 3 Alabama has the biggest impact of conference championship weekend. Following that, No. 2 Michigan and No. 13 Iowa face off in the Big Ten; No. 4 Cincinnati faces off vs. No. 21 Houston in the AAC; and No. 5 Oklahoma State takes on No. 9 Baylor in the Big 12.
Assuming chalk wins in those games (Georgia over Alabama, Michigan over Iowa, Cincinnati over Houston and Oklahoma State over Baylor) then the only real question the committee must ask is whether to place 11-1 Notre Dame into the playoff, or 12-1 Big 12 champion Oklahoma State. There's also the matter of whether either of those teams jump Cincinnati in the last rankings, forcing the Bearcats to take on, presumably, the top-ranked Bulldogs.
Fantasy Injury Updates: Are Calvin Ridley, Kareem Hunt, Logan Thomas, more coming off IR in Week 12?
Calvin Ridley, Kareem Hunt, Logan Thomas, DeVante Parker, and Will Fuller are currently on IR, and all could return as soon as Week 12.

Even a loss in any of those games — other than the SEC championship — creates a fairly easy problem for the selection committee to solve. A loss by Michigan would allow both Notre Dame and Oklahoma State into the playoff. A loss by Oklahoma State would move Notre Dame into the top four as well. What the committee doesn't want to have to deal with, however, is No. 3 Alabama beating top-ranked Georgia.
How would the committee react to that situation? The Crimson Tide would have to be ranked No. 1 in the country by virtue of its victory. Then Georgia would fall in the rankings as well, likely to No. 3 or 4. Assuming chalk won out elsewhere, then the selection committee would have to parse through No. 2 Michigan, No. 4 Cincinnati and No. 5 Oklahoma State for two remaining spots. Who's the odd team left out in that scenario?
College football winners and losers in Week 13: Cincinnati remains on course for CFP spot; Texas rebounds
The Bearcats easily handled ECU to continue their march to a slot in the College Football Playoff, while the Longhorns won to avoid historical mark.Well, probably. Who knows what the playoff selection committee will do in the final rankings? In the first year of the format, in 2014, the committee tore up the rankings and moved Ohio State into the semifinals, drawing outrage from TCU, Baylor and the rest of the Big 12 — though the Buckeyes rewarded that faith by winning the national championship.
Only time will tell if chalk wins out, chaos reigns or college football falls somewhere else between those two poles. Until then, here's how to watch the final rankings unveiling of the 2021 college football season:

Fantasy TE PPR Rankings Week 15: Who to start, sit at tight end in fantasy football .
Our Week 15 fantasy TE PPR rankings can help with your start 'em, sit 'em decisions at this notoriously thin position.It's an interesting week since all options are (hopefully) on the table, but at this point in the season, tight end breakouts are seemingly over. That said, Ricky Seals-Jones is back from injury, and in PPR leagues, he could be a sneaky TE1 for the rest of the season. This week, he'll face the Eagles, who are the worst defense against fantasy tight ends. People are quick to forget RSJ was productive earlier this season when Logan Thomas was out, so he's worth grabbing as a flier with more favorable matchups ahead.
