Start-Sit Sites

Postby Sprouse_1212 » Fri Nov 11, 2005 6:55 pm

Do any of the sites you guys use take into account the weather? I was just wondering because I see for the St. Louis vs. Seattle game there is a 70% chance of rain. I would think this would affect the passing game, but all the sites I use have them as strong starts or with this site it says "no-brainers". I was thinking these sites only look at the matchup and not other factors. What do you guys think or is the weather not as much of a factor as what I think it would be?

I think the weather has a lot to do with the play calling but you have to remember some of these sit and start sites post information early in the week.

If you're talking about passing offense (players such as Bulger, Hasselbeck, Holt, etc) then I don't think rain would really hurt their numbers. Receivers know the route they are running no matter what the weather is, but in rainy, slippery weather, it's a lot harder for defensive backs to really cover their receivers well.


Wind is usually the important factor for passing instead...

So it sounds like rain is a slight factor but not enough to make a QB or WR that would normally be a strong start become a questionable start

Dan S. does. :-)

Weather, er, whether or not he'll downgrade a player because of the forecast depends on both the exact forecast and the teams involved, though. Looks like Dan felt that both teams would take to the air in this one in spite of the possibility of rain.

It's defeinitely a forecast worth keeping an eye on, though.

You said it perfectly. The DB's struggle covering, and with the gloves they have today catchiing the ball really is not an issue.
I'm starting Hasselback this week with complete confidence.

Oh yeah, you were dead on about the wind joshy. ;-D
