NFL Week 14 Weather Updates: Cold, wind could affect fantasy start ’em, sit ’em decisions
As trying as this season has been for fantasy football owners, at least the weather has been mostly decent. Sure, there have been a few games with high winds, heavy rain, and a little bit of snow, but as we approach mid-December, things could be a lot worse. The Week 14 NFL weather forecast features more of the same — some cold, a little wind, one rainy spot — but ultimately, there isn’t anything that should have a big impact on start ’em, sit ’em decisions in the first round of your fantasy playoffs.
Before we get into the Week 14 forecasts, here’s a reminder that if you have any questions about sports weather or how weather could impact play (and, potentially, your fantasy, DFS, and gambling decisions), don’t hesitate to reach out to Rotogrinders’ meteorologist Kevin Roth on Twitter (@KevinRothWx) or check out the hourly NFL weather forecasts on RotoGrinders.

NFL Week 14 weather updates
Forecasts courtesy for Kevin Roth at RotoGrinders.
Texans @ Bears. Temperatures will likely be around freezing for this one. This seems like a good time to remind you that temperature is only minimally impactful to scoring and passing, so don’t be too worried about the cold.
Jets @ Seahawks. There will likely be scattered showers here, but nothing too major. With little wind in the forecast, there’s no need to fade any of the big weapons in either teams’ passing games.
Steelers @ Bills. Temperatures should be around freezing with a 10-mph sustained wind — in other words, classic Buffalo weather. There won’t be enough wind to be a major factor.
Ravens @ Browns. Here’s another game with temperatures around freezing with 10-15-mph winds. Unless the forecast changes on Monday, there’s no need to fade any players from this game.
All of this is subject to change as we get closer to kickoff. You can follow meteorologist Kevin Roth on Twitter (@KevinRothWx) and check out the hourly NFL weather forecasts on RotoGrinders. For the best weather-related fantasy advice, take a look at WeatherEdge.
