NFL Week 13 Weather Updates

Chargers @ Bengals. You will most likely see images of snow in Cincinnati on Sunday pregame shows, but once the game starts, you’re more likely to see cold rain, if at all. Conditions won’t be perfect, but they shouldn’t be that bad, assuming a Los Angeles team can handle them. For now, we are not recommending seating any key players.

Cardinals @ Bears. With more than a 50 percent chance of rain and winds around 15 mph, conditions for Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins’ first game in a month are not optimal. That said, they can still be started, but Darnell Mooney’s outlook dims a bit with the forecast. (Update: there could be short downpours in this one.)

Ravens at Steelers. It looks like the heaviest rain will fall after the game, but given the contentious nature of both aerial offenses, fantasy owners might want to steer clear of any player on the edge. Lamar Jackson, Diontae Johnson, Marquise Brown and Mark Andrews are still mandatory starts, but we’ll be watching this forecast to make sure it doesn’t get worse.


49ers at Seahawks. There is a chance there will be some light showers in this one, but unless the forecast changes and the precipitation seems stronger / steady, you shouldn’t be too concerned about the weather affecting your players.

Patriots @ Bills. It’s going to be cold … it might snow … and it’s going to be windy. Welcome to Monday Night Football in Buffalo in December. With winds around 20 mph and some potential snow, it’s reasonable to assume both passing infractions will slow down. Given the elite defenses involved, that could mean someone other than Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs and maybe Dawson Knox is off limits. That includes both kickers. We will update with the latest forecast closer to Sunday’s games.
