How To Manage NFL Bye Weeks in Fantasy Football

Many fantasy pundits will claim that fantasy football is the easiest fantasy sport to play since there are only 17 weeks in the NFL season and, generally, only 16 weeks in a typical fantasy football season. While that may be true, there are many other factors for fantasy football players to contend with that fantasy baseball, fantasy basketball and fantasy hockey players do not have to contend with. These factors include higher injury rates, platoon situations, weather conditions and one element that is emphasized much greater in a short season; the dreaded Bye Week.

During the NFL season, the schedule will show that some teams will not play a game on one of the weeks starting in week 4 and ending in week 10. On the low end, four NFL teams will be given a week off during this 7-week stretch and as many as six NFL teams will have a week off. This change was introduced by the NFL to give teams a chance to rest and recover from injury….so they say. Of course, the contract with the networks needed to be re-negotiated and became worth much more money to the league with an extra week of games to televise.

Those of us who love fantasy football also looked at it as a change for the better since it would give us another week to compete in the fantasy football season. However, the following season showed all fantasy players the negative side of the change; our season became much more difficult to manage. The change not only affected the week-to-week assignment of starting positions, it also added a new dimension to our draft logic. We now need to look at the bye weeks within each position to make sure we will have enough available players to start each week; assuming we have no injuries or trades. This concern will give a manager pause when evaluating a favorite player, or potential sleeper, to draft and realizing that you have already drafted one or more players at his position that have the same Bye Week.

While most fantasy football websites require a league to accept this issue as a way of life, Maximum Fantasy Sports does offer a solution. They provide a league configuration option known as Bye Week Rollover. If configuring a fantasy football league with this option turned on, managers can chose to use the week prior to a Bye Week as the player’s performance during the Bye Week. There is one catch though; this decision needs to be made before the game starts in the week prior. For example, Team A has Adrian Peterson facing the Houston Texans in Week 5 and Peterson has a Bye Week in Week 6. If the manager selects the checkbox to “roll over” Peterson’s points to his Bye Week prior to the Week 5 game starting, Peterson’s points will be locked in for Week 6 as well. So, you get a 2-for-1 performance. Now, there is no guarantee that Peterson will outperform any other player on the roster that could be started in Week 6 and, if he gets hurt or has a bad game, you cannot change the fact that Adrian Peterson’s points are already scored for Week 6. In a matchup like A.P. facing the Houston Texans' defense, one would think that this is a worthwhile risk. In other cases, such as Derek Carr facing the Denver Broncos in Week 9 with a Bye Week in Week 10, it may make more sense to let Carr have his Bye Week on your bench and start another QB during Week 10. The idea of Bye Week Rollover is to provide your league’s managers with an option on how to handle Bye Weeks without having to alter the players on their rosters.

Super Bowl Hangover

I hope y’all are filling your down time productively. This is definitely the slow time for the NFL. It does afford time to try to figure out how Commissioner Roger Goodell has made around $35 million dollars in each of the past 4 seasons. Those numbers help further put into perspective exactly how big of a business the NFL is nowadays.

The only other news right now is about retirements and contract discussions and far too many Mock Drafts. Good Lord, there are 10 more weeks of interviews with Mel Kiper and Todd McShay ahead to rehash the same discussions about the upcoming, yet far away, draft. Yes, the NFL Draft is a huge event but we do not need to be bombarded with talks about it from the days following the Super Bowl to the event itself.

Speaking of the Super Bowl, it is comical to hear Denver’s defense talk about their place in history among the best defenses of all time. Ha! Far from it. They were very good against Carolina and for the majority of the year but I don’t even think that they were much better than Kansas City’s defense this year let alone anywhere close to the 2000 Baltimore Ravens, the 1975 Pittsburgh Steelers or the 1985 Chicago Bears. I know the current players are a bit too young to have seen these teams in the 70s and 80s play but the Chicago Bears? Ha, not even close.

In 1985, the Bears gave up more than 19 points three times that season and only once after Week 3 and that was to Dan Marino and the high-powered Miami Dolphins. The Broncos gave up more than 19 points seven times this season, including 23 to a Cleveland Browns team powered by the likes of Josh McCown, Isaiah Crowell and Travis Benjamin. The 1985 Bears may have held the Browns scoreless with negative yardage if they played in 2015. The Broncos cite holding an Antonio Brown-less Pittsburgh Steelers and the one-dimensional Patriots and Panthers to less than 19 points each. Well, aside from the possibility of New England beating them if Stephen Gostkowski aside doesn’t miss an extra point, let’s just focus on the Bears giving up a TOTAL of 10 points in three playoff games. TEN points….and the one touchdown that they gave up was when they were ahead 44-3 in the Super Bowl. That is domination like this generation will likely never see again. The icing on that cake is that they held the Patriots to 7 yards rushing and 177 yards passing. 184 total yards.  

Congrats to the defense of the Denver Broncos for a nice win, but please find a bit of sanity and not make a laughingstock out of yourselves.

While I found their boasting funny, it doesn’t top how hysterical Eli Manning’s face was when caught on film not enjoying a Denver TD. He can make all the excuses that he wants but you know it was him being upset that he just lost his career-defining achievement of having more Super Bowl wins than Peyton. When it comes to that look, it was shared by all Panthers and Panther-backers when Cam made “a business decision” to not attempt a fumble recovery when they could least afford a turnover. And we thought he put all he had into the game.

2015 Fantasy Football Awards

This is our look at the 2015 fantasy football awards through our eyes. Of course, league settings vary and could skew one position moreseo over others so we will assume a standard, non-PPR league scoring system. We will also assume a championship in Week 16.

Most Valuable Player: Cam Newton. The expectation for 2015 was for him to stay in the pocket more and run less. Well, after losing Kelvin Benjamin before the season started, Cam was left with a group of WR3s or worse and a top tight end. Great players make those around him better and Cam responded with over 3800 yards passing and 35 TDs with an additional 636 yards rushing and 10 TDs to best the entire NFL. A truly amazing feat for a guy that barely cracked the Top 10 QBs drafted.

Least Valuable Player: Pick any of the RBs drafted in the first 3 rounds and you most likely have a hit. Granted, many of those players; Foster, Bell, Lynch,…suffered injuries, but you need to expect that with RBs and grab their backups. Only 7 RBs broke 1000 yards rushing this year and, to put it in perspective, Darren McFadden was one of them. NONE of the 13 RBs who broke 1000 yards in 2014 repeated. That is an amazing stat that will finalize the current shift in drafting strategy from 2 RBs early to 2 WRs early.
Awards by Position

Quarterback:

Best draft pick: well, if our fantasy MVP is Cam, you know that he tops our position list. He had double digit points in every single game, including topping 20 in over half of his games.

Worst draft pick: Andrew Luck. The Colts had a solid receiving core at the end of 2014 and then foolishly added to it instead of bettering their defense so it seemed like Luck was destined to be a point machine just to keep them in games. Granted, an injury shortened his season, but he was almost unstartable before that. He played 7 games and broke 300 yards passing in only two of them. He threw an INT in 6 of those games and multiple in 5 of those games. He was a first or second round draft pick in every league and killed many seasons. Peyton Manning was a very, very, very close second.

Best Free Agent acquisition: Blake Bortles. Now, he was drafted in deeper leagues, but started the season on the waiver wire in the majority of leagues. He had some maddening games and often started slowly, but his numbers were solid at the end of the day. He put up over 20 fantasy points in 9 games and averaged 26ppg during the fantasy playoffs.

Biggest Playoffs Contributor: Kirk Cousins. Cousins only had a few shining moments in the first 12 weeks, but exploded when it counted thanks to finally having a healthy DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed to throw to. He averaged 30ppg in week 14-16 and carried many teams to a championship.

Biggest Playoffs Killer: Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers’ final numbers on the year look great but his biggest weeks were in the first half of the season. He really struggled in the second half, especially in weeks 14-16, where he averaged 12ppg, including an 11 point dud in week 15 and a 7 point travesty in week 16.

Running Back:

Best draft pick: Devonta Freeman. The Atlanta running back situation was difficult to know during drafts since the Falcons didn’t know themselves. Smart owners drafted both Tevin Coleman and Freeman. Those who got Freeman rode him to the playoffs as he was a flat out stud for the majority of the season and performed well in weeks 15-16.

Worst draft pick: there are many to choose from but Melvin Gordon has to top the list cuz he was actually healthy all year and produced zip, nada, bunko. He was drafted anywhere from the 3rd round to the 6th round and was a bust no matter where he was drafted. He had ZERO double digit games. ZERO! And that includes receiving yards too! He will go into 2016 searching for his first professional score. Eddie Lacy was a very close second but Gordon truly had no rival at how poorly he performed in an ideal situation for him.

Best Free Agent acquisition: DeAngelo Williams. Smart Le’Veon Bell owners drafted Williams as well since Bell had a 2-game suspension to wait out. However, once Bell came back and began tearing up the league, foolish owners dropped him since he essentially had 5 weeks of goose eggs. When Bell went down, Williams ripped off double digits in almost every week from 8-16. Only week 10 at Cleveland was a surprising light effort. In weeks 14-6, he averaged over 19ppg.

Biggest Playoffs Contributor: David Johnson. Johnson showed his versatility at the beginning of the season by scoring on kick returns and passes but was an afterthought for the middle of the season when he rarely got a chance to contribute on offense. When Chris Johnson went down, David stepped in and got better each week. In weeks 14-16, he put up 12, 41 and 19 points. Who would have thought a team of Kirk Cousins and David Johnson would roll through the playoffs?

Biggest Playoffs Killer: C.J. Anderson, DeMarco Murray. Both were full-season Busts that really stood out in the playoff weeks, though each had decent Week 16 efforts for their owners that were undoubtedly out of the running. C.J. put up a 0, 2, 12 playoff line and DeMarco put up a 4, 0, 11 playoff line.

Wide Receiver:

Best draft pick: For me, it is Brandon Marshall. Antonio Brown’s overall numbers were better, but he had some weak performance thanks to Big Ben being out. Marshall was the most consistent WR by far. He didn’t even crack the Top 20 WRs drafted and had double digit points in all but 3 games this year thanks to breaking 100 yards or getting a TD. Getting Ryan Fitzpatrick under center was a Godsend for Marshall’s performance.

Worst draft pick: Dez Bryant. You can cite his injury or Tony Romo’s injury all you want. No matter how you look at it, he was a waste of a first round draft pick. For players active all year, you can look at T.Y. Hilton, Randall Cobb and Jordan Matthews as your runner-ups.

Best Free Agent acquisition: Doug Baldwin. Seattle has never been a team that anyone looked to for WRs except for Bye week fill-ins. That all changed when Jimmy Graham and Marshall Lynch got hurt and Seattle took to the air. His performances in weeks 10-16 were some of the best that I have ever seen.

Biggest Playoffs Contributor: Doug Baldwin. He averaged 20ppg in weeks 14-16.

Biggest Playoffs Killer: Randall Cobb. He was a season-long bust but really stood out in the playoff weeks with a robust 5.5ppg average. It was obvious that he is a much better second fiddle than lead dog.

Tight End:

Best draft pick: Gronk. Gronk justified his lofty ADP by easily outscoring his peers again with a 72/1176/11 season. The first half of his season was fantastic compared to the second half, but he helped position many teams for a playoff run.

Worst draft pick: Martellus Bennett. With Alshon Jeffery injured often and Brandon Marshall gone, Bennett had a stellar opportunity to shine in a contract year, but only had 3 double digit games and the remainder of the games were less than 6. He was greatly outplayed in the second half of the season by backup TE Zach Miller.

Best Free Agent acquisition: Gary Barnridge. The book on him coming into the season was that he was a blocking tight end. Through multiple poor starting QBs, Barnridge was able to put up 8 double digit scoring weeks for a 71/977/9 season tally in another weak year for tight end consistency.

Biggest Playoffs Contributor: Jordan Reed. 21 ppg in weeks 14-16. This guy could rival Gronk for draft position if he could only stay healthy. The QB/TE Redskins pairing was hard to beat with money on the line this playoff season.

Biggest Playoffs Killer: Tyler Eifert. Eifert was a true feast-or-famine producer this season but he tallied a weak 4 points in week 14 and then sat out weeks 15-16 with a neck injury.

Defense:

Best draft pick: Kansas City. The Chiefs were brutal as a whole early in the season, but, if you throw out their games at Green Bay and at Cincinnati, they were the best scoring fantasy defense this year in many formats. They scored 7 DTD, had at least one turnover in all but those 2 games, and really shined in the playoff stretch by dominating San Diego, Baltimore and Cleveland.

Worst draft pick: Buffalo. This may rank as the worst value pick of the whole draft. The Bills were one of the best defenses in 2014 and they were expected to be even better in 2015 with Rex Ryan as their coach. HA! They scored 4 or less points in HALF of their games with 3 being negative in leagues that penalize for points/yards given up. They were flat out horrible and were one of the first 3 defenses off the board in every league.

Best Free Agent acquisition: Houston. Houston was drafted but was discarded in many leagues after being horrific in the first 7 games of the season, Jacksonville game excluded. Starting in week 8, they posted double digits in 6 of their final 9 games and averaged almost 13ppg in weeks 14-16.

Biggest Playoffs Contributor: Arizona. The Cardinals were a defense to start every week all season but really shined in the playoffs when they steamrolled Minnesota, Philadelphia and Green Bay. Scoring systems vary, but they only gave up 15ppg, with 3 INTs, 8 fumble recoveries and 14 sacks. Their week 16 beatdown of the Packers clinched many championships.

Biggest Playoffs Killer: Denver. Denver may have been the top scoring defense in many formats, but many of those points were tallied in the first 6 games of the year. Scoring-wise, they laid an egg in weeks 14-16 by only registering 2 INTs, 1 fumble recovery and 8 sacks.

Kicker:

Best draft pick: Stephen Goskowski. Not even close. In a year where missed extra points rose dramatically due to the distance change, Goskowski was perfect. On field goals, he was almost perfect . He only missed 3 and they were from 46, 48 and 54 yards out. He had field goals in every game but 3 and also gets our best playoff performance by logging a total of 8 FGs in weeks 14-16.

Worst draft pick: Adam Vinatieri. He missed 3 extra points and only had multiple field goals in 7 games. Hell, he took a goose egg in his first two games and even had negative points if you get penalized for missing short field goals. Further highlighting his poor season, he had 5 games where he had 3 or less points.

Best Free Agent acquisition: Chris Boswell. After Shaun Suisham was lost to injury and Josh Scobee was booed out of town after 4 weeks, Boswell stepped in and secured the job going forward. He only missed 2 field goal at home, which is not an easy place to kick, and only missed one extra point.

Are You Not Entertained?

Aside from the first game of the playoffs, Kansas City at Houston, the impartial fan had to enjoy the Wildcard Playoffs, especially if they like Gladiator movies. You had to feel sorry for the hometown fans. They either had to watch their team get destroyed or had to suffer through adverse weather conditions to see their team snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory. Seattle and Minny was a war of attrition that came down to a handful of plays since the Vikings had to settle for field goals when moving the ball. Unfortunately for Vikings fans, they have grown to know football disappointment their whole lives so they have been conditioned, much like being used to drinking beer slushies.

Fans in Cincinnati were treated to a whole ‘nuther level of disappointment. They watched their Bengals and the Steelers slug it out all game, literally, and then come back late after going scoreless for most of the game and take a lead that was almost unrelinquishable. Almost. Maybe if they hadn’t lost in the previous six opening rounds they would know how to handle success, but they topped a game-changing fumble by brawling their way into retreating to their own Red Zone to gift an easy game-winning field goal to the Steelers. Say what you will about Joey Porter being on the field for Pittsburgh, the Bengals’ coaching staff should have had their players off the field until the penalty on Vontaze Burfict was assessed. Leaving those idiots on the field with free time was asking for trouble. It is a joke that Adam Jones would even insinuate that Antonio Brown was faking an injury. Even if he was not concussed, the whiplash effect alone from Burfict’s cowardly hit would keep most players on the field for five minutes while they confirmed that they could still move all of their appendages. Good to see that the fans weren’t affected at all by the poor sportsmanship, by both sides, on the field. Only six fans were arrested for fighting or providing golden showers to other attendees. No clue how many additional incidents there were that did not result in an arrest.

Of all the fights in the stands, I am guessing that none of the combatants looked worse that Seattle’s punter, Jon Ryan, the next day. His injuries were self-inflicted and, quite possibly, a result of playing too many video games, thus having the vision in his head of the ability to leap seven feet in the air. Based on the way he came down, I am wondering if his neck was as sore as Brown’s the next day.

Speaking of fans, I would bid good riddance to that jackass, Stan Kroenke, and the Rams. You can’t fault the players, even though they have been mediocre, or worse, since 2003, but the primary disrespect came from Kroenke who has no concept at how much it actually costs to attend an NFL as far as a percentage of a person’s disposable income. NFL owners, as a whole, are clueless about how the real fan lives and survives. I generally grouse about how much the NFL player gets paid, but, the ticket prices aren’t ever going to be reduced to pay them less. The owners only care about how much they are going to make and how much they can get the host city and fans to contribute to their costs instead of digging a bit deeper into their pot of gold. It has never been more evident than the exchange with Miami Dolphins owner, Stephen Ross, with a reporter. After he stated that everyone won in the decision to move the Rams to LA, he was asked about the fans in St. Louis. After realizing that “everyone” includes the general public outside of the Owner’s circle, he corrected himself and said that the St. Louis fans lost, but that there always has to be a loser to make someone a winner. In his world, the rest of us are losers.

Johnny Manziel is rumored to be dropped by Nike. Good thing that these shoe companies make 95% margins off overseas child labor since they can afford to waste it on ridiculous contracts to any professional player that makes a name for himself. Here's hoping he gets a chance to waste some of Jerry Jones' money!

NFL Regular Season Finale

The playoffs are set and there are no clear-cut favorites, though I would say that whoever comes out of the NFC will win. Carolina, Arizona and Seattle will beat any and all AFC teams right now. The Patriots are one-dimensional and fading, Denver has soft-throwing Peyton Manning back which is only a boost in experience, Cincinnati cannot go from Ofer under Marvin Lewis to winning the Super Bowl and Pittsburgh needs a running game to succeed. Speaking of Pittsburgh, Ryan Fitzpatrick must own a closet full of Terrible Towels cuz his last three drives made him look like a huge Steelers fans since he threw INTs on each drive. At least K Dan Carpenter provided some yucks for his miscues.

The Chargers did their best to give Kansas City the gift of the division championship but committed a crucial turnover that Denver turned into the game-winning touchdown on the next play. San Diego played much better than a 4-12 team all year but really had no offensive weapons after WR Keenan Allen was lost for the season. I am still in shock at what a bust RB Melvin Gordon was. At least they played to the end and put in an effort to win, unlike the league’s other 4-12 team, Dallas, which tanked it to the brutal end. Dallas was rewarded with the 4th pick in the draft which they can use to secure Johnny Manziel and Josh Gordon from Cleveland to round out the character of the team that Jerry Jones wants to showcase. Of course, Cleveland can use their pick on another QB to add to their ever-expanding graveyard of QBs.

The Vikings finished off a very successful season that exceeded lofty expectations by winning the division after taking the final game at Lambeau Field. In a shocking display of treason, former “mascot” Ragnar buried any respect that any fan had for him by flipping Sides and promoting his new love of the Packers. Much like a Kardashian, Ragnar decided to turn to The Dark Side. A fine choice for someone getting paid more than they are worth and then demanding a disproportionate raise for a lack of actual talent. People only paid attention because of the look and, sadly, a good deal of those folks only watched in hopes of seeing a flaming crash. Ragnar is dead to Vikings fans. One can only hope that a similar fate awaits the Kardashians.

A few coaches didn’t make it to Black Monday but Tom Coughlin finished out his season as the Giants coach and waited for management to let him excuse himself from the job with their collective boot on his backside. Of course, Eli tried to throw in a few compliments during Coughlin's farewell press conference but they were intercepted. Coughlin tried to reassure Eli that his play didn’t cost Tom his job just like it was Eli’s passes that didn’t win their two Super Bowls together. The defense won the Super Bowls and helped escort Coughlin out of New York. I did like the take on Coughlin reassuring Eli that it wasn’t his fault by using a scene from the movie “Good Will Hunting”.

Popping The Cork

Week 16 was the week of the Equalizer in the NFL. Atlanta ruined the Carolina Panthers’ perfect season just two weeks after being dismantled 38-0 and set off champagne corks across southern Florida. The Redskins clinched the worst division in the NFL with a resounding win over Philadelphia, in Philly, and sealed Chip Kelly’s fate as he was forced to pack his bags and take a $3.4 million check back to the college ranks. Pittsburgh and Seattle showed that they are not unstoppable offensive forces and were huge upset victims at the hands of division foes, which knocked the Steelers out of position to control their own fate and are now big Bills fans going into this Sunday. And finally, the Packers continued to show that they are the worst 10-5 team that we have ever seen after getting punished in the desert by Arizona. One may argue that they would be best served to lose this weekend and hope that they draw Washington in the first round of the playoffs, but I seriously doubt that they can win that game. However, their odds are slightly better than meeting the Vikings for a third time or hosting Seattle.
Never, never, never overthink your playoff week roster decisions. Stick with the players that got you to your fantasy playoffs.

Performances that won/lost games:
  • Anyone that benched Julio Jones couldn’t kick themselves hard enough as he made Carolina look like New Orleans last Sunday with a 9/178/1 day. This weekend, he does face New Orleans and may be targeted enough times to have a monster day and break records for the number of catches and yards in the regular season by a wide receiver.
  • Rolling the dice and starting RBs Cameron Artis-Payne, Jay Ajayi or Christine Michael proved to be worth only slightly more that leaving a starting position unmanned. I understand that desperation leads to some irrational decisions, but don’t bench someone that you normally start weekly, such as Devonta Freeman, because of a matchup concern. Always get beat with your best hand.
  • The Least Valuable Performance from last Sunday came from Ben Roethlisberger. I had him inked in for 30 points and he barely topped 3. He was really a killer for those owners who had him paired with Steelers receiver(s). It was reminiscent of 2014’s Week 16 performance by Andrew Luck versus the Cowboys. There was no reason to expect those performances so you just hope that your opponent suffers the same fate, such as starting Aaron Rodgers as his QB last week.
For those playing this week, many NFL teams are still in play as few have nothing to play for. Washington is one that can be expected to sit many players, at least for the second half if not for the whole game, as they are locked into the fourth playoff position in the NFC. Most other teams still are jockeying for their position, are looking to affect the playoff hopes/location of other teams or just want to finish the season with a win and hopefully use that to gain momentum into next season. As always, leagues running through week 17 should always consider our In-game Player Change option, at least for this week if not for the whole season, to help make line-up changes during the game for players who may only play a quarter or a half. If you are playing this week, you won’t have much competition roaming the waiver wire unless you are playing in a Total Points league. If you do need help, here are a few options to consider aside from players mentioned over the past few weeks such as QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, RB Karlos Williams/Mike Gillislee, WR DeVante Parker or TE Zach Miller:

QB: Sam Bradford (PHL) – the Eagles are a mess and their disastrous season is over, but, with a new coach coming in for next season, some guys will be trying to make a good final impression that carries over to the evaluation period leading into the 2016 season. The Giants defense is worse than Philly’s so I expect a shootout and some good numbers from Bradford. He has back-to-back 300+ yard games and there is no reason to expect less this week.

RB: Pierre Thomas (WASH) – Pierre makes his first appearance this season after finally making a difference coming off the scrap heap. As mentioned above, Washington will be resting starters so they should give Thomas the bulk of the workload out of the backfield, particularly in the passing game. He had 7 catches last week and faces a mediocre Cowboys’ defense this week.

WR: Keshawn Martin (NE) – The Patriots have a Bye locked up but do need to win, or Denver lose, to lock up the number 1 seed. That being said, I expect Martin to get a decent workload versus New England running out their injured WRs; Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. Facing a terrible Dolphins defense, they could get Joey Galloway to suit up and I would consider picking him up and starting him.

TE: Zach Ertz (PHL) – The Giants’ pass defense gets torched by wide receivers and tight ends alike. If Ertz is available and you need tight end help, grab him. He is clearly Sam Bradford’s favorite target and will get a lot of passes thrown his way on Sunday.
