Other Offenses to Consider: Cardinals, Saints, Jaguars, Bills, Titans, Steelers, Buccaneers, Seahawks and Cowboys

Weather Concerns; STL/GB and CHI/KC will be a bit gusty at times with winds around 20 mph but otherwise weather shouldn’t be much of a factor.

Note: I will update the quick picks throughout the course of the day and adjust picks according to who is active/inactive.
