Fantasy football is about more than assembling your favorite players on one team. This week, with six teams on a bye week, strategy element of the game begins to set in. While a week to rest might be good for the players, it’s certainly a headache for fantasy owner.

 

Teams on bye week: Baltimore, Cleveland, Dallas, Miami, St. Louis, and Washington.
