Maybe it's just me, but I'm not benching anyone in this game. Could be a low scorer or it could turn into a slugfest 60+ pointer.

Nope,it's not just you.I was thinking the same thing.I'm thinking more of shootout(A nice show for the London fans).

Go with the under because of the weather,that would be smart, and a SURE THING, LOL.Thats why I starterd doing Fantasy Football 15 years ago !!!!!!! I have alot more money in my pocket now.

It's alot harder to defend in the rain against the pass.The Wr's know where they are going,and Brees is much too accurate of a passer.(He'll make up for last weeks poor effort in a big way.),and Rivers will have to throw to keep up.

The rain doesn't look bad. 70% chance of rain up to a quarter inch. I don't see it playing too big a roll in tomorrow's game. Not like last year.

That said, I'm staying away from the under. I did bet the Charges -3 though.

Weather: Rain is in the forecast for the early part of the day in London today, but that’s expected to taper off to “few showers” by game time. Wind isn’t expected to be a factor, and it doesn’t look like fantasy owners should ultimately make any lineup changes based on the weather in this game. We’ll track it through the morning, though.

Well, now I am going with Rivers. Decisions Decisions. I have switched them out at least 5 times.

According to weather.com, the forecast for Sunday's Chargers-Saints game at Wembley Stadium projects temperatures in the low 50s and only a 20 percent chance of rain.
The sky will be partly cloudy with winds from 8MPH, which won't greatly affect passing. The pitch is still a concern and the game threatens to be more low scoring than a normal battle of such potent offenses, but there's no reason to consider benching your best fantasy players in this game.

London is a beautiful place especially in the autumn, dont stress about it being Seattle East guys ;-D

Time to show a little lack of knowledge. I've read this "the pitch could be a concern" in a few places. What is "pitch" in regards to weather? Any help and enlightenment is greatly appreciated.

European grass is different than American grass. It actually makes a humming noise if you listen closely. The rain will increase the heaviness of the grass, thus, decreasing the pitch. It shouldn't affect the players too much.

'pitch' = playing field ;-D

Draining of excess water has been an issue on occasion at Wembley, but i believe it has been corrected and the weather should not be a factor today in any case.

Hope this helps!

I think the pitch may be the slope of the field, or crown. If they have an issue with the pitch it could cause problems with poor drainage and a soggy field.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
