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.
Week 18 weather: Cowboys vs. Eagles
Mostly clear, with a low around 21. Calm wind becoming south around 5 mph after midnight.
We shouldn’t have any noticeable issues from the weather as it will be a clear, cold night at Lincoln Financial Field. It’s not clear on how long the starters will play for either team in the regular season finale. Neither has a lot to play for in this game, and that is more pressing than the weather at this point.
