<p> Fantasy Football 2013 NFL Bye Week Cheat Sheet</p>

Whether you build your draft strategy around them or pretend they don't exist, bye weeks are just as much a part of fantasy football as the waiver wire or setting up your starting lineup each week. As a fantasy GM you have two choices when it comes to bye weeks - pay attention and plan accordingly or simply ignore them and accept the consequences from playing someone who can get you no points.

This season's bye week schedule runs from Week 4 through Week 12. There are only two weeks (8 and 9) with six teams on bye, but either week could turn out to be a pivotal one in your league. For example, in Week 8 alone Arian Foster, Ray Rice, Matt Forte, Chris Johnson and Ryan Mathews are all on bye, not to mention Andrew Luck, Brandon Marshall and Andre Johnson, while in Week 9 those who have Peyton or Eli Manning, Matthew Stafford or Colin Kaepernick will have to turn to a backup to carry them to victory. Who says bye weeks aren't important?
