FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 14 ISSUES: SNOW, SNOW, SNOW

Wow the weather has gotten nasty all over the country and it will have a BIG bearing on the wild card or first playoff week in fantasy football.  This is the risk you run when you draft player who play in cold weather climates in December and that is why I personally am obsessed over the schedule when at the draft table.  So with that in mind, let's see what old man winter has in store.

LET IT SNOW

There are FOUR games that will be impacted by snow and ice so that means QB's and wideouts in such games are likely going to see their numbers drop.

Steelers VS. Buffalo:  Not the worst type of snow in Buffalo for an area that gets massive blizzards but it is something nonetheless. 1-3 inches are expected but the winds will be light so don't think of benching any passers or wideouts here.

Giants VS. Cowboys:  This one could get nasty as snow and ice is expected to begin before the Sunday night game and we all know how the wind howls at Giants Stadium.  However the snow is not expected to be heavy and could even have turned to rain by the time the game begins.  Also the winds are actually not supposed to be bad at all so keep starting everyone.

Browns VS. Bengals:  The snow will be light with 1-3 inches expected but not the winds which are going to be in the 15-25 mph range.  That means anyone on the fence on Andy Dalton should bench him.

Packers VS. Seahawks:  The snow is also light here with 1-3 inches but it will fall throughout the game.  The winds will be 10-15 mph which is not terrible so keep everyone in your lineup this week.
