Week 14 is here and the weather for the National Football League matchups is a mixed bag. For the most part we should be good, but the Baltimore and New York area look a little dicey with rain and wind. As usual, we don’t want to overcompensate, but it might be a good idea to find other kicker options and possibly side with a better weather game if your start/sit choice is close.

Worst weather games

Sunday morning update: Both the Texans-Jets and Rams-Ravens still look like they’ll be wet and windy. The rain should be coming down consistently during both games. The Rams-Ravens doesn’t look to be as windy as the Texans-Jets as it looked before, but it will still be breezy and rainy,

Houston Texans at New York Jets

Looks like we will see steady rain with winds around 10-15 with gusts up to 30 mph. How windy it actually is on the field is always tough to know ahead of tie, but the rain coupled with gusty wind isn’t set up great for kicking and deep passing and deep passing is the Texans strong suit.

Los Angeles Rams at Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore has a weather forecast very close to East Rutherford, as we should see steady rain, winds from 10-15 mph and gusts up to 30 mph. These forecasts don’t mean these teams won’t pass the ball, but they might not be as effective

Indianapolis Colts at Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati has a chance of rain with wind around 10 mph and temperatures in the low 40s, but dropping as a cold front moves through. It doesn’t look like it will be a steady rain and it could move out by game time. I’m not overly concerned at the moment.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Cleveland Browns

Rain seems likely, but there is a chance it clears out by game time. The good news is that the wind doesn’t look like it will be a problem at 5-10 mph. I’m not downgrading any fantasy players in this one.

Better weather games

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears

This game looks better than it did earlier in the week. It will be chilly, but not freezing with temperatures in the mid 30s. Wind will be a little breezy at 10-15 mph, but nothing I’d worry about.

Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers

Nothing to worry about here. Temperature around 60 degrees, light wind and no precipitation.

Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs

Temperature should max out around 40 degrees with winds around 5-10 mph and no rain. The weather shouldn’t impact this game.

Denver Broncos at Los Angeles Chargers

Beautiful California weather here, with temperatures in the mid-70s, light wind and no rain.

Green Bay Packers at New York Giants

Rain will clear out early on Monday for the Monday night matchup. Temperatures will likely be on their way down into the 30s for this one. Winds are worth keeping an eye on, but right now they’re around 10-15 mph. We shouldn’t worry until the top 20 mph.

Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins

No rain and temperatures will be in the 70s, but we should watch out for the winds. Right now they’re forecast for 25 mph gusts, but the base will be 10-15 mph.
