Titans @ Packers. Snow appears to be like more and more possible earlier than and through the recreation (particularly early). One of the best guess at in-game snow totals could be possibly an inch or two, however that is removed from set in stone. Typically, somewhat snow does not have the detrimental affect on offense many assume, as defenders typically wrestle to maintain their footing. Offensive gamers deal with equally slippery footing, however they at the very least know the place they need to go. I believe the forecast is a slight bump towards the operating recreation for each groups, however after watching Tom Brady as soon as throw 5 video games in a single quarter within the snow (2009), I am not too excessive on it being a disruptive ingredient. There will not be a lot wind and the temperature shall be within the 20s, so there is no want to think about benching Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, or A.J. Brown, and in case you had been going to play Robert Tonyan, Ryan Tannehill, and Corey Davis, they’re nonetheless in play, too.
All of that is topic to vary as we get nearer to kickoff. You possibly can observe meteorologist Kevin Roth on Twitter (@KevinRothWx) and take a look at the hourly NFL weather forecasts on RotoGrinders. For the most effective weather-related fantasy recommendation, check out WeatherEdge.
