This is it.  If you league is still holding its championship games, not at all the time to take risks.  Thus, we should look to see if any of Mother Nature's whims will affect your roster decisions.

It helps our planning efforts that 5 games are being played indoors this week.  Of the games scheduled to go in the elements, the only two that worry me are the Packer-Bear tilt in Chicago and the Seahawks hosting the Rams.  I have no idea how dense the fog will be in Seattle, so take care as this could have an adverse effect on the passing game.  As far as Chicago goes, these teams are used to playing outdoors in the winter, so that is not the issue.  The wind and snow, combined, concern me.  I was already a bit tense about Aaron Rodgers coming back for this game, and playing in less than ideal conditions leads me to question how effective the Packer offense can be.  Thunderstorms and wind in Miami are worrisome to a lesser degree, but at least it will be warm.  Other than as noted above, I see no weather issues.

As ever, good luck and Godspeed in your fantasy efforts.
