The 49ers hit the road to face the Seahawks on Sunday Night Football, and the weather in Seattle won't provide the best conditions for football. Weather.com shows a 60 percent chance of rain tonight in Seattle. The forecast has 9-mph winds around 10 p.m.
Seattle is accustomed to inclement weather, though, and both teams have played well in the rain recently. Colin Kaepernick threw four touchdown passes in the cold rain last year against the Patriots in Week 15, and Russell Wilson tied that mark the following week against the 49ers with wet conditions in Seattle.
Fantasy impact: If you're worried about these two passers playing in the rain, you shouldn't be. Obviously anyone who plays in Seattle should be used to that type of weather.
If the rain does pick up, both teams have dominant run games to rely on. Start your players from the Niners and Seahawks like you normally would.
