NFL Week 1 Weather Report

Weather impacts on fantasy and wagering for the NFL


Welcome back to another season of the weekly football weather report. Your one stop shop for information on how the weather will impact the games you care about, whether from a fantasy or wagering perspective. In an effort to keep things from getting stagnant around here I have changed up the format this year. I have taken the SportsMap name quite literally, and created an interactive map that you can zoom, scroll, and click on with all of your game and weather information.

On the map above you will find pins in each location where there is an outdoor game this week (color coded to the home team), as well as an overlay showing where precipitation is forecast on Sunday afternoon. Now here is the nifty part - when you click on a pin it will display both the weather information for that game as well as my take on how the conditions will impact players for fantasy purposes.

Hopefully you find this format change to be useful and slightly more engaging. I plan to continue tinkering with this set up and will be adding additional information in the future, including select college games.

If you have any questions or thoughts feel free to find me on Twitter @stephenuzick.

Happy football season everyone!

Who is actually determining how much Jose Abreu is playing right now? Is it Joe Espada or is someone telling him from the top of the organization to play Abreu and not take him out of clutch moments?

Also, could Espada be sending a message to the front office by giving them a good look at how bad he is, and how much he's hurting the team with regular playing time?

ESPN Houston's Jeremy Branham makes that case in the video above, but his radio partner Joel Blank isn't quite buying it.
