The forecast for today's Raiders-Chiefs game calls for winds of 20-30 mph and gusts of 40+. That's more than enough to impact the passing and kicking games. We wouldn't bench your usual Chiefs (Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Travis Kelce), but their ceilings might be capped a bit in the wind. Raiders QB Derek Carr and WR Tyrell Williams are shaky fantasy plays today. Ditto for Ks Harrison Butker and Daniel Carlson.
The Raiders have released K Matthew McCrane and signed K Daniel Carlson. Carlson was a 5th-round pick by the Vikings this spring but got cut after missing 3 FGs in a Week 2 loss to the Packers. He can't be trusted in fantasy lineups.
The Vikings have released K Daniel Carlson. The 5th-round rookie missed 3 FGs in Sunday's tie against the Packers. Carlson will be replaced by longtime Cowboys K Dan Bailey, who is 2nd in NFL history with an 88.2% career FG conversion rate. Bailey immediately becomes a fantasy option this week against the Bills.
