The 2017 Fantasy Football Bye Weeks

By Matt Schauf 9:04am EDT 4/21/17

If you’re reading this article, then you probably watched the schedule release coverage on NFL Network.

You know that the Chiefs will visit the Patriots for the Sept. 7 opener.

You probably know that these are the London games:

Ravens-Jaguars in Week 3
Dolphins-Saints in Week 4
Vikings-Browns in Week 8

You’ve likely seen that there will be 2 Monday games on Christmas weekend:

Steelers at Texans
Raiders at Eagles

You might know that the Patriots will face the Raiders in Mexico City in Week 11 (regular late-afternoon Sunday kickoff time).

Of course, because you’re a fantasy football player, you also know that the most important aspect of the schedule release is learning the bye weeks.

They start in Week 5 this year. Week 7 brings us the light 2-team slate. Weeks 9 and 11, meanwhile, hold the challenges of the 6-team byes. That Week 11 six-teamer could prove especially impactful to high-stakes players.
