NFL weather forecast for Week 7 Monday Night Football, what it means for fantasy and betting

The weather report can impact fantasy football and betting. We break down the important information you need to prepare for Week 7’s Monday Night Football matchup between the Saints and Seahawks.

Monday Night Showdown: Can the Seattle Seahawks upset the New Orleans Saints?

The 3-2 New Orleans Saints head to Seattle to take on the 2-4 Seahawks, and weather could have an impact on this matchup. Will it be as bad as last night in San Francisco? Right now it doesn’t look quite as bad, but it should be close.

Weather needs to be extreme to truly impact games, but when deciding between two players who you like equally, it might be a helpful tie breaker. What we really don’t want to see is 20 mph or higher wind speeds. Rain can cause problems, but unless it is a combination of high winds and rain, we usually don’t want to downgrade our fantasy football players too much.

Helpful weather resources include National Weather Service and Dark Sky, among others.
