2020 Fantasy Football Bye Weeks

By Matt Schauf 6:05am EDT 5/8/20

If you spent 3 hours watching the NFL schedule get released on TV Thursday night, then you are much more desperate for entertainment than I am.

Network filler aside, though, we now have the final piece for mapping out the fantasy football season ahead. And most importantly, we know the bye weeks.

The league changed its bye-week distribution again. The past 2 years each found the NFL spreading byes from Week 4 through Week 12. This season, the byes begin in Week 5 and don't finish until Week 13. Oddly, we'll have 2 teams on bye in that final week, after no teams sit out Week 12.

If you're playing a season-long contest such as the FFPC, then it'll be nice to have your full roster available for Week 12, which begins your fantasy playoffs. But be aware that any Panthers or Buccaneers will miss Week 13.

Here's the full list of 2020 NFL bye weeks:

Week 5

Detroit Lions
Green Bay Packers

Week 6

Las Vegas Raiders
New England Patriots
New Orleans Saints
Seattle Seahawks

Week 7

Indianapolis Colts
Jacksonville Jaguars
Minnesota Vikings
Tennessee Titans

Week 8

Arizona Cardinals
Baltimore Ravens
Denver Broncos
Houston Texans
Pittsburgh Steelers

Week 9

Cincinnati Bengals
Cleveland Browns
Los Angeles Rams
Philadelphia Eagles

Week 10

Atlanta Falcons
Dallas Cowboys
Kansas City Chiefs
Los Angeles Chargers

Week 11

Buffalo Bills
Chicago Bears
Miami Dolphins
New York Giants
New York Jets
San Francisco 49ers

Week 12

No byes

Week 13

Carolina Panthers
Tampa Buccaneers

We will have no games in London this year because of coronavirus. (Four had been planned.)
