In the Week 5 weather report, we’ll go over the games that seem to have the strongest predicted wind gusts, possible precipitation and more. We will also give you the games where we should not you have to worry about the weather, that is, games you can choose in DFS without having an ulcer. Useful weather resources include the National Weather Service and Dark Sky, among others.
Worst Weather Games
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Buffalo Bills
We have a pretty good Sunday for the weather this weekend, so bad weather in Buffalo will be our worst. The wind should be the biggest problem, but it’s not crazy, with base winds around 16 mph and gusts up to 29 mph. The frequency of bursts and the way it plays in the stadium will be the crux. It may not be the best for a rookie QB to get his first start, as Kenny Pickett will face the wind and one of the best defenses in the league.
