We are starting to reach a turning point in the NFL season where cold-weather games are not only possible but will likely be in several locations. Keep in mind that temperatures have little to do with recording, and unless they’re extremely cold (below freezing) or paired with wind / snow, we can generally ignore them for fantasy / betting purposes. However, we still have a few games in week six that might have slight impacts on the weather when starting out, seating decisions, and as usual, I focus more on wind than rain.
Before we get into the predictions for Week 6, here’s a reminder that if you have any questions about sports weather or how the weather could affect gameplay (and maybe, your imagination, DFS decisions, and gambling), feel free to reach out to Rotogrinders meteorologist Kevin Roth on Twitter (Embed a Tweet) Or check out NFL hourly weather forecast On RotoGrinders.

Weather updates NFL Week 6
Courtesy of expectations for Kevin Roth on RotoGrinders.
Lions @ Jaguar. Constant winds will likely reach around 15 mph, so it might be worth considering sprinting in this game, but that’s about it.
Aircraft @ Dolphins. There is a chance for showers and sustained winds of 15 mph, but it just doesn’t seem like there is enough here to deserve the menu changing decisions.
Heads @ Bells. There is a 44 percent chance of rain at kick-off, with heavy rain expected late in the match. The winds will be light, however, so you will likely not need to put any regular novice player on the bench, especially with two strong-armored QBs.
All of this is subject to change as we close to launch. You can follow meteorologist Kevin Roth on Twitter (Embed a Tweet) And check out NFL hourly weather forecast On RotoGrinders. For the best weather fictional advice check out WeatherEdge.
