Welcome to week 2. This week we have a few more weather concerns than we did last week. Heat will be more widespread this week imparting a negative effect on defense. It's a lot tougher to chase guys around in the heat than it is to run knowing where you are going. Additionally rain and storms will be a possibility in Miami as a tropical depression or storm moves by Florida this weekend. Right now it looks like the storm itself should move out before Sunday but there will still be some lingering thunderstorms behind it. One potential concern would be lightning as delays could throw a wrench into the flow of the game for the teams.
This week you will also notice a new addition to the map. In games where winds will be 10 mph or more I have included a diagram in the game information displaying the wind direction in relation to the field. As we get into fall and winter this will become more important as wind will become more of a factor.
Finally, if you prefer not to scroll through the map, you can click the small arrow at the top left corner of the map and it will bring down a menu where you can click each game individually.
Recap if you missed last week: Above you will find an interactive map with pins for each outdoor game this week overlaid with forecasted precipitation. Clicking on a pin will display weather and fantasy impact information for the game.
As always if you have any suggestions or questions you can find me on Twitter @stephenuzick.
Rockets' Alperen Sengun recently was a guest on Paul George's podcast and spoke about a conversation he had with James Harden.
He said Harden told him he was proud of him. This led George to saying he thinks this means the torch has been passed from Harden to Sengun.
Which made us wonder, is this now Sengun's team? Or is that a little premature and the true leader of the team is head coach Ime Udoka or Fred VanVleet?
Plus, Jalen Green has responded positively from being benched. Is this proof that Ime Udoka has the team taking more accountability and heading in the right direction?
