When does your NFL team or preferred fantasy football player have a bye week in 2018 according to the official schedule? Lets take a look at the list!
As you can see in the table above the 2018 NFL bye weeks will begin in week 4, and end in week 12. Most teams will have their bye between weeks 7 and 11, with just 2 teams on bye in weeks 4, 5, 6 and 12.
If you’re wondering how to draft your fantasy football team when it comes to bye weeks, the best advice I can offer is don’t worry about it! Unless you draft all your guys from the Redskins / Panthers who have their bye week in the first month of the 2018 season, by the time your players bye week comes up your roster will have likely changed so heavily that the preseason/draft day worrying over bye weeks won’t matter anymore.
If you want to give yourself some time early in the NFL / Fantasy football season you should target players on the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams, New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins, New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers as they will all have a bye in weeks 11 or 12.
