Weeks 8 and 9 seem to be the biggest in terms of bye weeks and it’s going to be a waiver wire frenzy from all teams around you to make sure they are set up for the coming weeks. As the season begins to wind down you will really need to be on top of your game if you plan on staying competitive through the next couple of weeks. Of course the best players are going to have been picked up by now but there will certainly be a few diamonds in the rough that will get your through the week.
