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!

Week 12 is upon us which means we are in the homestretch for fantasy playoff positioning. If you still have something to play for you will want to pay attention to the weather this week as all but two games will be played outdoors this weekend. Weather will be active in the Northeast on Sunday and could impact over half of the games being played with rain and some snow possible in a number of locations.

The map will give you a general idea of which games could see impacts, however you will definitely want to check back in with me Sunday morning (@stephenuzick on Twitter) to get the latest forecast updates.
