Week 15 Weather Report

If you’re still reading analysis articles on Fantasy Sharks, congratulations are in order since you’re probably in the thick of your league’s playoffs. But now isn’t the time to sit back and pat yourself on the back. It’s time to hunker down and pay attention to every little detail as there is no more room for even the slightest of errors. One detail often overlooked is weather conditions and how it will affect your players. Weather can be a big factor in games this time of year. So this week, we’ll take a look at the weather forecast for each game’s designated time slot (as of today) and how it should affect the teams’ passing, running, kicking and defensive games.

The upgrades and downgrades need to be used on a relative scale. For example, if we upgrade the Rams’ offense because the game is indoors and slightly downgrade Denver’s passing game because of 15 mph winds, it doesn’t mean you should start Marc Bulger over Jay Cutler. That should be obvious.
