Fantasy Football Bye Schedule
2008 Bye Weeks
The 2008 fantasy football bye schedule is one of the most important resources for owners. Sure, youll come to your draft with a fantasy football schedule and fantasy football cheat sheet, but a list of NFL bye weeks can also be critical to the success of your team.
For example, lets say youre getting ready to draft your second wide receiver, and there are two players who youve ranked very close together. A quick look at the bye schedule for each shows that one receiver is off the same week as your number-one wideout, while the other isnt on his bye until a month later. Since your rankings basically have them at 1A and 1B, the smart move is to draft the second option.
Of course, some fantasy football experts will also look closely at value before making such a decision. Lets say you expect your number-one receiver to be a Top 10 player. When its time to take a second starting receiver, you find that a projected Top 15 receiver has fallen to you. After checking the bye schedule, you realize hes off the same week as your other receiver, but his value may be too great to pass up. You can start the two receivers every week with confidence, and then rely on later round picks or waiver wire players to get you through the bye week.
Heres the complete 2008 fantasy football bye schedule. Keep in mind that bye weeks do not start until Week 4, and they end after Week 10.
