First up, the good news: There isn’t much rain in the NFL Week 6 weather forecast. Now for the bad: a good chunk of games figure to see winds over 10mph.

NFL Week 6 Weather Updates

Courtesy forecast for Kevin Roth at RotoGrinders.

Cardinals @ Browns. This is the windiest game of the week with gusts close to 20 mph. Considering the lack of “go-to” players in the respective passing games (Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins) and strong passing defenses, it shouldn’t be too difficult to put the secondary players on the bench. Kickers don’t necessarily need to be benched, but both seem unnecessarily risky.

Chargers @ Ravens. This game might see conditions somewhat similar to the Cardinals-Browns game, but the sustained winds don’t appear to be as strong. There is no reason to put Lamar Jackson, Justin Herbert, Keenan Allen, Mark Andrews, Marquise Brown or Mike Williams on the bench (if healthy). Kickers present a bit more risk, but it’s tough to put Justin Tucker on the bench.

Dolphins vs. Jaguars
Chefs @ Washington
Rams @ Giants
Packers @ Bears

Vikings @ Panthers

All of these games appear to have sustained winds around 10-12 mph. Some games can get a little louder – and there’s a slight chance of rain for Jaguar Dolphins in the UK – but there’s no reason to worry about players from a fantastic point of view. .
