NFL Bye Weeks: 2020 Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet

A handy list to help fantasy owners manage those pesky bye weeks

The unveiling of the 2020 NFL regular-season schedule means that fantasy players can finally start looking forward to the upcoming campaign. And with the schedule comes that one detail for each team that can't be ignored — the bye week.


Generally speaking, fantasy owners fall in one of two camps when it comes to bye weeks. They either love them for the opportunity to think strategically or they loathe them and view them as nothing more than an annoying nuisance.


This year's bye weeks are laid out slightly different compared to last year in that they start one week later (Week 5). This later start also means that two teams (Carolina, Tampa Bay) don't get a break until Week 13. The bulk of the byes fall between Weeks 6-11. Weeks 8 and 11, in particular, could be tricky to navigate with six teams on bye in each.


So love them or loathe them at least fantasy owners can now start preparing for the bye weeks... or just continue to ignore them altogether.
