Weather can have a profound effect on fantasy baseball, even washing half a slate of games completely.
It’s rare weather that wipes an NFL game off the schedule, but clear skies, high winds, rain, snow and cold can have positive and negative affects on skill positions across the board.
Severe wind, cold and rain may affect quarterbacks and kickers most, boosting a team’s running attempts. That said, you almost never want to bench your studs over weather concerns. Offensive players have to deal with a slippery pigskin and poor field conditions, but unlike defenders, they know where they are going. Defenders have to react to cuts and jukes. Explosive direction shifts lead to spinouts and open receivers/running lanes.
A few years ago, we received permission from Accuweather.com to link to the weather from each of the NFL stadium cities. Clicking the links on this chart will take you off our site to www.accuweather.com. As it always is with weather forecasts, skies can change in a second so checking the weather the day before or the day of the game will give you the most accurate information.
We have one game being played at Wembley Stadium in London, Bills vs. Jaguars, and four teams on bye again this week: Bears, Bengals, Broncos, Packers.
