Jets-Chiefs weather update: Game forecast, Brandon Marshall health, fantasy implications - NJ.com

Field Update 12:47 p.m. central time:The grounds crew at Arrowhead looks to have done a pretty nice job with the field. Despite rain throughout the night and the early morning, things appear to have held up quite well (as indicated by the photo). An updated weather forecast shows a 15 percent chance of rain up until 10 p.m.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Todd Bowles may not be the one who has final say on Brandon Marshall's availability against the Chiefs.

The Jets'coach may first have to convene with Mother Nature.

According to weather.com,the rain that began in Kansas City late Saturday night is expected to continue throughout the 1 p.m. (central time) hour. There is a 25 percent chance of rain at 2 p.m., and a 5 percent chance at 3 p.m. The Jets and Chiefs kickoff at 3:30 p.m.

Combine Marshall's gimpy knee, with the wet and soggy grass at Arrowhead Stadium? Well,the equation may be one that leads to No. 15 sitting out.

"I've got just to be smart," Marshallsaidearlier this week. "It's a long season. Although it's tough thinking about not playing, it could be a possibility. But I'm still hopeful that we still have a couple of hours left to get a lot of treatment, rest. And also, you just never know what the human body does. So we'll see."

Will Marshall make an impact vs. Chiefs?

Marshall, who set the Jets' single-season receiving records for receptions, yards and touchdowns last season, is dealing with a knee injury suffered against the Bills last Thursday.

During an ugly takedown by Stephon Gilmore, Marshall's leg and foot got caught underneath the cornerback's body. The initial fear was Marshall tore something in his knee. Marshall, of course, did not, but he's far from 100 percent.

He didn't practice Monday, Wednesday or Thursday, and the Jets listed him aslimited on Friday. Marshall received the questionable designation on the Jets' finalinjury report.

"I think the biggest thing in this situation, for me, you've got to think about," Marshall said. "This is Week 3. Although every game is important, I never want to hurt the team or hurt yourself worse. But obviously, I've always tried to fight back [from injuries] and have done a great job of being on the field."

VOTE: Will the Jets beat the Chiefs?

Whether or not Marshall plays hasquite a few fantasy implications. Without him in the lineup, the stock of No. 2 wideout Eric Decker and No. 3 Quincy Enunwa rise, as does that of running back Matt Forte.

The one player (outside of Marshall) whom it doesn't help is quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. Kansas City's defense is one of the better in the league, and Fitzpatrick is a quarterback prone to turnovers.

Taking the field, on the road, without his top target? If Fitzpatrick's in your starting lineup, you may want to get No. 14 out.
