2013 Weather Outlook
Posted 16 November 2013 - 02:15 PM
Starting with Chicago tomorrow where there is a high probability of HEAVY rain and 30 MPH winds. Tomorrow might be the worst weather that many of these players have ever played in if the forecast turns out to be accurate.
What could this mean? Not much kicking will be possible at Soldier Field with Tucker and Gould. Also, Flacco and McCown won't be able to throw like they want. Heavy dose of Forte and Rice, I'm guessing. Not saying I would bench a Marshall or Torrey Smith, but I would consider other options other than Flacco and McCown in case you're in a deep league.
Also, there seems to be some weather concerns in Cincy for the Cincy-Browns game as well. Something to keep an eye on.

Agreed. This might be a scenario where you should actually sit your WR studs if you have better options.
THIRTY miles per hour is a crazy amount of wind. I wouldn't expect much passing at all if that's the case. It's enough to make me consider benching Jeffrey.

Anyway, thanks for the heads up. My opponent is heavily invested in the Bears O (McCown, Forte, Marshall) this week so hopefully the winds gust even higher.

Don't think it is going to matter for Cameron/Gordon owners.
No way the Browns run McGahee 30 times.
So maybe I should stop pacing around wondering if I should bench Gordon for Harvin? Lol

Overthinking things always kills. I never bench one of my good players because of weather. Now if it's truly a tough 50/50 call, then I'll take into account the weather.
I agree, weather gets overrated a lot of times, especially wind. Unless it is a white out blizzard or torrential downpour, I try not to overreact when conditions are going to be a little nasty.

anyways, i personally would have no prob with BMarsh/Bennet/Forte, and, to a lesser extent, McCown ... those guys are gonna get theirs, regardless. they make their living with the short/intermediate stuff. hell, Marshall might see 20 targets today, who knows.
same with Cameron and Chris Bananas for Cleveland.
kickers are another story, of course ... wouldn't want any part of that sh!te show.

Yeah I dumped Justin Tucker. I really hate spending transaction $ on kickers unless I have to due to bye but I'm fighting for a playoff spot
not to derail here, but pertinent to the weather discussion, as kickers are most affected ...
take a look see if Feely (Arizona), Gano (Carolina) or Novak (San Diego) are out there for those carrying Tucker. Gould, etc.
one league i'm in penalizes for missed fg's ... eff that weather noise, gents.

Chicago forcast heavy rain gusts to fifty mph, I hope the steelers lions game is over before the storm hits Pittsburgh, but all Midwest outdoor games will be effected
nfln bimbo on site in Chicago right now ... blonde tresses a-blowin' in the wind, while squegee guy furiously working the rain off the tarp.
warnings of 60+ mph gusts throughout the game.
looks as bad as advertised, folks
