Fantasy, betting impact of weather forecast for Jets-Seahawks in Week 17

We break down the weather report for fantasy football and betting for Jets-Seahawks in Week 17 of the 2022 NFL season.

The New York Jets will head west to take on the Seattle Seahawks in Week 17. This non-conference matchup sees both teams needing a win to stay in their respective conference playoff pictures. Kickoff from Lumen Field in Seattle, Washington is set for 4:05 p.m. ET, with the game airing on Fox.

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.
