NFL Weather Week 8: Rain, wind and hail in the forecast can impact fantasy starting decisions

November is almost here, and with it cooler temperatures, more rain, and windier conditions. All things considered, the weather forecast for Week 8 of the NFL isn’t too bad, but the above three elements will impact this week’s games. RotoGrinders Meteorologist Kevin Roth is here to help us break down all the key weather updates before fantasy football owners start making their Week 8 decisions.

Before we jump into the Week 8 forecast, here’s a reminder that if you have any questions about sports weather or how weather could impact play (and perhaps your fantasy, DFS options, and gambling decisions), please feel free to reach out to RotoGrinders Meteorologist Kevin Roth at Twitter (@Kevin Rothox) Or check the hourly NFL weather forecast on RotoGrinders.

Weather forecast and NFL updates for Week 8

Expectations, God willing Kevin Roth at RotoGrinders

Patriots@Dolphins. There is a 20-30 percent chance of rain and winds in the 15-25 mph range are expected for this game. This won’t help the offense, but all of the usual key players in Miami’s passing game should remain in your lineup. Kendrick Bourne and kickers don’t need to be forced into lineups, but the weather shouldn’t affect your starts, or your decision-making too much.

PPR Week 8 Rankings:
QBs | Regional Resources | WRS| TEs| Dr. sts | Kickers

vikings@packers. Temperatures could drop into the 30s with a 50 percent chance of rain and winds of 10 to 15 mph. It will be miserable for the fans, but it shouldn’t affect the players’ performance too much. Again, you don’t want to force any borderline players into your lineup (kickers, secondary receiving options like KJ Osborn and Jayden Reed), but any regular starters (Jordan Addison, TJ Hockenson, etc.) should stick with this Grammar.

Jets @ Giants. There is about a 35 percent chance of rain at this game, but wind speeds should not exceed 10 mph. Unless the forecast gets worse heading into kickoff, there’s no need to worry too much about this game. (to update: The chance of rain is now 60 percent. Don’t take any chances with kickers or pass rushers other than Garrett Wilson or Darren Waller.)

Fancy tip for week 8:
Sleepers | Busts | Forecast | Start them, sit them down

Jaguars@Steelers. This game has the highest chance of rain (75 percent early), but winds will be light. We’ll know before kick-off whether heavy rain is expected at any time, so, until then, plan to use your regular starters (Trevor Lawrence, Christian Kirk, Evan Ingram, George Pickens) as usual.

Falcons@Titans. There may be heavy rain near the stadium, but ultimately, there should be a few showers once the game starts. Both teams rely on the run anyway, so there’s no need to put any starters on the bench.

Chiefs @Broncos. Temperatures will drop into the 20s, and there may be some snow flurries. Most of the heavy snow has already fallen in Denver, so the field may be a little slippery, but the wind will be light, so you shouldn’t have to sit on any regular starters.

All of this is subject to change as we get closer to kick-off. You can follow meteorologist Kevin Roth on Twitter (@Kevin Rothox) and check the hourly NFL weather forecast on RotoGrinders. For the best nonfiction weather advice, check out WeatherEdge.
