Effects of Weather in Fantasy Football

It seems intuitive to believe that weather plays a huge role in the fantasy performance of different positions in the NFL. When we see a quarterback struggle mightily in a snowstorm, it is easy to jump to the conclusion that weather has a significant impact on the fantasy performance of players. When deciding the players to start for a particular week, weather seems to be a reasonable variable to take into account. Another variable to take into consideration when making such decisions is the opponents the players are facing. Is weather as significant to this decision as opponent defenses? The focus here is on quarterbacks and running backs, though kickers presumably could be strongly affected by weather as teams rarely attempt field goals or even kicks for the extra point in extreme weather conditions.
