The Week 15 NFL weather forecasts are extremely favorable for this time of the year, but potential rain and cold temperatures in Pittsburgh for Patriots-Steelers and wind and rain in Seattle for the Rams-Seahawks could be affecting your fantasy football start 'em, sit 'em decisions. How worried should you be?
The rest of the games, including a chilly affair in Buffalo for the Dolphins-Bills, should see mostly clear conditions, albeit with some temperatures around the freezing mark. Still, 30- or 40-degree weather isn't going to cause you to sit your normal starters. Let's take a deeper look at the two games mentioned above and see if there are reasons to consider benching anyone who would normally be in your lineup.
NFL Week 15 weather updates
The Patriots-Steelers game should see temperatures in the high-30s/low-40s and a steady drizzle throughout. Given the two veteran QBs and high-powered offenses in play here, the weather forecast shouldn't affect your start-sit decisions. Quarterbacks, wide receivers, kickers -- they're all still options. The wet conditions could give you slight pause about JuJu Smith-Schuster, who's nursing a sore hamstring, but that's it.
The Rams-Seahawks game will also be played in a steady rain, with winds gusting to around 10 mph. The rain is the bigger worry here, but for now, receivers like Robert Woods, Sammy Watkins, and Doug Baldwin are still in play.
