Weather needs to be extreme to truly impact games, but when deciding between two players who you like equally in fantasy football, it might be a helpful tie breaker. What we really don’t want to see is 20 mph or higher wind speeds. Rain can cause problems, but unless it is a combination of high winds and rain, we usually don’t want to downgrade our fantasy football players too much. When it comes to betting, that impact comes primarily on the point total more than the spread or winners and losers.

The wind will be the problem, but the extreme wind chills also will slow down any human being to some extent. Both quarterbacks can run the ball, giving them a shot at fantasy relevance solely with their legs, but deep passing and kicking will be perilous at times.
