Cold…snow…injuries…teams knocked out of playoffs picking up players from the waiver wire. Fantasy Championships must be coming up. Last week was about as good as it gets for this time of year, but we have a few weather trouble spots in store for Week 15.

I’ll post any updates here on Sunday morning with a final update around 12:30PM ET.

Sunday, December 15th, 2019:

Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers
1:00 PM ET
LAMBEAU FIELD
GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN

Temp: 17°
Precipitation: None
Wind: 8 mph
Wind Gusts: 12 mph

Fantasy Impact: It’s cold, but this contest is between two cold weather teams so it shouldn’t matter right? Probably wrong. Aaron Rodgers has played in five sub-21° games. In those five games he threw for a combined 6 TDs although he did manage to average 254.6 yards passing, which isn’t too far off from his career average. I’m making Rodgers a fringe QB1. Davante Adams has only played in one ‘frigid’ game where he turned 6 targets into 2 receptions for 25 yards.  That’s a very small sample size and I’m not going to go so far as to bench him, but the cold is definitely significant enough to bump Davante Adams down to WR2 territory. Aaron Jones hasn’t had more than 5 carries in any game nearly this cold, but he seems to thrive in cold weather games (21-40°) averaging 5.5 yards/carry and .73 TDs/game. I won’t say the cold will necessarily help him, but I’m not as worried about the cold affecting his play as I am some of the others.

After a horrendous start to the season, Mitchell Trubisky has turned in two consecutive 3-TD outings. I think the streak ends in this game. The Green Bay defensive line should be able to overwhelm the Chicago offensive line. Between extra pressure and frigid temperatures, I’m not sure Trubisky can be trusted even in two-QB leagues. If Trubisky has trouble finding success, Allen Robinson‘s ceiling is capped. No other Chicago offensive weapon can be trusted as anything more than a flex play.

Fantasy Impact: It’s going to snow at a manageable rate of .25″/hr during the game, but Arrowhead Stadium is equipped with a heating system that keeps the playing field above freezing. Unless it snows much harder than expected, it shouldn’t significantly impact the game from a fantasy perspective.

Yeah, confused how that wind isn’t a factor in Giants Dolphins game.

Dave says:

Do we really think 28mph gusts has no fantasy impact for the east coast games?
