Fantasy Football Weather Forecast: Week 14

Fantasy Football playoffs are underway.

— -- Fantasy Football playoffs are underway and we have a major storm affecting the Central U.S. this weekend. Heavy rain and wind could affect some players in your fantasy lineup from Kansas City to Chicago to Green Bay.

Showers, thunderstorms and extremely gusty winds are expected on Sunday at Soldier Field. Winds could reach over 35 mph with rain -- just awful weather to play football in. After last week, it became obvious that Matt Forte got the starting job, and he had a great game, but we have to be careful as Langford and Carey are still in the mix. I think he could have another good game this week, especially if they lean more on running the ball in this terrible weather.

As we move further north to Green Bay, rain and wind continues to be an issue through the afternoon and evening.

The Cowboys play the Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET. We usually don’t talk too much about defense and special teams, but we have to mention the Packers defense. They are going into a great match-up against a Cowboys defense, who have given up turnovers right and left all season long. The Packers defense has also been on a really hot streak the past few weeks.

Let’s not forget when there is rain and wind in the forecast, as there is on Sunday, the better chance there is for more opportunities to give up the ball.
