Normally, fantasy owners do not pay too much attention to the bye week period. However, with bye weeks starting in Week 4 and wrapping in Week 12, owners need to pay more attention to when players sit this season. It is smart to be prepared for your best player to miss a critical week.

The last month of the fantasy regular season, 20 teams will have a bye week. Notable players such as Tom Brady, Travis Kelce, DeShaun Watson, Todd Gurley, Jarvis Landry, and Zach Ertz will miss a game in the final four games of the fantasy regular season. Most owners will feel the effect of these late season bye weeks. Best to be prepared for this problem instead of caught off guard.
