I knew something like this would happen. Now, lets see if the NFL will actually do what they said they would do. Why are people blaming it on Florida though? 

Because they played in Jacksonville (the Jags were on the road against Houston) as the alternate site as they were displaced by Hurricane Ida.

I don't buy it. They were there for what 2 days?  So lets consider from Fri/Sat to Tuesday so 5 days ago?

Ya know as a doctor I would expect you to have a better grasp on how infectious diseases work 

I am not a Doctor, I am a Medic. I know exactly how Infectious Diseases work. Here is an exceprt of what I mean. If it came from Florida (which I am not sure why it would be just Florida and not Louisiana, which also has a reassurgence of COVID. They were tested too early for it to be from Florida. So either they were false positives, other players/staff had false negatives, or both. I wouldn't pin it n Florida, It more than likely came from were ever they were staying prior to the game ( Texas, Louisiana and maybe Flordia possibly). If that is were they were staying. 

"The researchers estimated that those tested with SARS-CoV-2 in the four days after infection were 67% more likely to test negative, even if they had the virus. When the average patient began displaying symptoms of the virus, the false-negative rate was 38%. The test performed best eight days after infection (on average, three days after symptom onset), but even then had a false negative rate of 20%, meaning one in five people who had the virus had a negative test result."

How would a forfeit affect fantasy football i wonder?

It would be treated as if the players in the forfeit game had an extra 'bye' week for the purposes of fantasy football. Put them on your bench, or take the goose egg.

I think they were also in Texas or something....

So two hotspots where Covid ran rampant.
