The Metrodome Roof Collapses -- How Does This Affect Fantasy Football?

Clearly there is a whole of fallout on the Metrodome Roof Collapse that has yet to be imagined. The NFL has a lot of thought to work through, with regards to how, where and when to play the game.

Here's my quick tip for you, the Houston fan, at 7:40 AM: Get these guys out of your fantasy lineups if you possibly can. I have Sidney Rice in one league and Steve Smith in another, although I imagine that many people are much worse off then I am. They have been benched. You do not know what the NFL will do, I do not know what the NFL will do, but one thing I'm relatively sure of is that if the roof has collapsed on Sunday morning, it would take an organization with a lot of foresight and planning to have an actual backup plan in place. The NFL is not that organization, as they already bungled the situation by not getting the Giants out to Minneapolis in time for the start of the game.

Ergo, this is the fantasy playoffs for a lot of leagues. Do what you can to avoid the zero. Bench Giants and Vikings players if you have any suitable alternatives. If you don't, find some. Fast.

EDIT: Huh. Well, Kudos to the NFL for actually getting things right this time. Crisis averted as the game is now in Detroit.
