NFL Bye Weeks: 2018 Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet

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

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady

When it comes to NFL bye weeks, fantasy owners have a love-hate relationship. Some view them as an opportunity to apply strategy to roster construction and management, while others consider them nothing but an annoying nuisance. The fact of the matter is bye weeks aren’t going away, but that doesn’t mean the NFL isn’t trying to appease fantasy owners either.

 

Or at least it can be perceived that way when viewing the 2018 schedule. While the total number of bye weeks has increased from seven to nine, it allows the teams to be spread out more. There are just two weeks with six teams on bye while nearly half of them (four) will see just two teams sitting it out.

 

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