In the Week 8 weather report we’ll go through the games that look to have the strongest projected wind gusts, possible precipitation and more. We’ll also give you the games where we shouldn’t need to worry about weather, i.e., the games you can choose from in DFS without getting an ulcer. Helpful weather resources include National Weather Service and Dark Sky, among others.
We’ve got a nice number of games in domes or warm weather locales, so there isn’t much weather related intrigue this week. The Seahawks

New York Giants at Seattle Seahawks
We’ve got some typical Seattle weather this Sunday, as it should rain, with a over a 60% chance of precipitation. The wind will also be brisk, at 10-15 mph and temperatures will be chilly around 50 degrees. It’s not awful, but could dampen things a bit.
