The popular answer is “I ignore them.” And it’s probably best not to sweat it too much.
But I do take a glance and if anything, I tend to do what’s considered the opposite of “spreading the bye weeks around”:
I google “bye weeks nfl 2019” and look at the list of teams for each week.
Then I look for the particular bye week with a number of teams that have a ton of fantasy relevant teams all not playing and I kinda keep that in the back of my mind as a cluster of teams I might want to target. My thinking is that, sure, if the majority of my team has byes that week will definitely be a loss. But every other week will be a little easier.
I definitely don’t have as many weeks in a row in the middle of the season where it seems like I’m reaching for my bench because one of my starters is always out.
Of course, you can’t just stick to this strategy “no matter what.” It definitely shouldn’t be the guiding principle of your draft. But if there are two players you can’t decide on, it might be a tiebreaker.
I’ve won championships this way in the past.
This year, weeks 7, 9, and 12 look a little like that.
