Does the bye week of players go into rankings and when to draft them? Is it better to spread out the bye weeks and manage the bench even if it means you miss out on a higher tier guy? Is it better to get it all over in one week and just play backups and accept the loss/hope for the best?
Never, not draft a guy because of a bye week. I’d rather have all my guys on the same bye rather than spread it out over weeks 4-11
Bye weeks are the one thing I don’t look at AT ALL when drafting. Your roster will likely change so much by the time a big bye week issue comes up that it’s a moot point and if it hasn’t that probably means you’re rolling and punting a week isn’t the worst of things.
