NFL Week 11 Weather Conditions (Fantasy Football)
Another weekend of decent football weather is in the books. Hopefully, November keeps up the trend and we can move into the fantasy playoffs (which I KNOW you are headed for dear reader) with no bad-weather games. That all being said, we do have a few games this week worth keeping an eye on and they do feature some of the bigger match-ups of the week, looking at you KC/Philly. Read ahead and see what’s in store for Week 11!
Don’t forget Matt DiSorbo’s Whether Weather Really Matters article to see how the weather impacts players.
Remember – games in domes are NOT listed!
Early Afternoon Games
LOW impact. Another great weekend of Cleveland weather. I’m not expecting any precipitation during the game, winds in the high single digits, and a high temperature in the upper-40s. Start all players as normal.
LOW impact. A cold but overall nice day is expected in Green Bay on Sunday. No rain is expected along with no significant winds. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper-40s, so chilly but no need to make any roster moves based on that.
LOW impact. It’s shaping up to be a great and warm day in Miami for football. No significant winds, no chance of rain, and a high temperature in the low-80s. Start everyone as you would normally.
LOW impact. Another largely good game for weather, just watch the winds before kickoff. Right now, winds are expected to be in the high single digits gusting up to the high teens. No impacts to your pass catchers or your WRs, but if winds are pushing, you may want to flex kickers if you have the option. Temperatures will be in the high-50s.
LOW impact. Expect a gorgeous day in Charlotte on Monday. No rain, plenty of sunshine, and winds in the single digits. High temperatures will hit in the lower-60s, so start everyone.
LOW impact. Really nice conditions in Jacksonville on Sunday. Sunny skies with a high temp in the mid-70s and winds in the single digits. Start all your players.
LOW impact. Overall it should be a decent day in San Francisco. Winds will be a little high with sustained winds expected in the low teens and gusts reaching the high teens. The biggest impact will be on any kickers, so you may want to flex to another option. I don’t think the winds will be that big of an impact on QBs or WRs. High temps in the low to mid-60s.
LOW impact. There’s a small chance of rain (less than 20%), but it’s looking like most of that will be before game time. Winds will be a little high with sustained speeds in the lower teens, but aside from that no other impacts during the game. A high temp of 44° (brr!) is expected during the game.
Sunday Night Game
MEDIUM impact. Expect some rain showers off and on throughout the game, along with winds in the low teens gusting to the high teens. The rain likely won’t be too heavy, but it does have the potential to be a nuisance during game time. I wouldn’t switch any players unless the conditions continue to degrade over the next day or so. Just keep an eye on the weather and be ready to flex if need be.
Monday Night Game
MEDIUM impact. There are going to be some rain and wind concerns during the game. There’s a 40% chance of rain during game time, with winds in the low teens gusting up to the high teens. The rain and the overall moistness of the area may cause some ball security issues but I don’t recommend benching your studs unless you have a viable alternative. Temps during game time will be in the lower-40s.
Remember that weather, just like football, is a dynamic thing and can change! Good luck!
