Fantasy Forecast: Week 16

Here's how the weather may affect some players in your lineup.

— -- Championship games for Fantasy Football are underway this week and here is how the weather may affect some players in your lineup. A chance of rain on Sunday in the Northeast could affect several games, from Baltimore to East Rutherford to Buffalo.

We should still acknowledge the chance of rain here and talk about the Patriots backfield. Dion Lewis and LeGarrette Blount are both done for the season due to injuries, so that leaves James White as the team's main running back. He proved himself last week, picking up over 70 yards and a touchdown against the Titans. If you need it, lock him in as an RB2 or Flex option in your lineup.

There’s a bigger threat of rain in Buffalo, New York, where the Cowboys play the Bills on Sunday. Rain is likely and it’s also cloudy and cool with highs in the 40s. Earlier in the season Sammy Watkins complained about his small role on the Bills’ offense, but the second half of his season has been a boon to fantasy owners. He is consistently scoring and getting over 100 yards per game.
