Weather needs to be extreme to truly impact games, but when deciding between two players who you like equally, 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.
Weather for Saints-Eagles in Week 17
The forecast in Philadelphia calls for partly cloudy skies with temps around 50-52 degrees. No precipitation is expected, and there will be a moderate wind of 8 mph.
This is shaping up to be pretty good football weather for January, so no adjustments need to be made for fantasy and/or betting purposes.
