The END of BYE WEEKS.

No More BYE's. What does it mean for YOUR Team?

More Headaches. Now I have so many players to assess matchups for each week.

The END of BYE WEEKS.

Postby saundman2000 » Mon Nov 15, 2004 11:51 am

Week 10 was the last time that players ride the bench for the reason that their team has it's bye week. So what does this mean for your team?

My team is stocked with a few studs but, since there are no bye weeks left, I have about 4 roster spots that are up for grabs each week and 9 second tier players I can use to fill them. Decisions....decisions.

Not a bad problem to have, but I will have to evaluate my lineups carefully.

RB Adrian Peterson, Matt Forte, Lesean McCoy
WR Brandon Marshall, Kenny Britt

My situation doesn't quite hit either of the answers directly. I seem to lack any top-tier studs this season (except owning both Gonzo and Gates at TE), but also don't have any obvious dead-weight duds.

Still, woulda been nice to have, say, Plummer and Droughns in week 10. I'm glad the byes are done regardless of any matchup headaches that result.

If I owned both Gonzalez and Gates and they were my only studs, I'd be wheeling pretty quickly to trade 1 of these 2 guys for a top 10 RB, assuming you can only start 1 TE in your league.

I will be glad to have LT2 back and hopefully very healthy!

definitely more headaches for me, though hopefully better options. i've got about 10 RBs on my team currently, because no one has stepped up as an everyday stud (league scores 20 yds per point, so guys like Portis and Faulk who get a decent number of yards but no TDs are definitely downgraded):

Portis, Faulk, K. Jones, Pittman, Barlow, Blaylock.

Hopefully with at least 5 of 6 available (Blaylock gone when Priest is back) I'll be able to pick two to get some points each week...
