Especially when they don't anticipate them until the week of and realize they're missing 2-3+ guys.

I'm kinda hating bye weeks in one of my main leagues. Except from weeks 4-10 my opponents lose a combined 1 TE, 1 K, and 2 DEF starters. I someone go through 9 weeks of byes without playing a team sitting any of their star WR, RB, or QB.

It is CRAZY tight in my league for RBs, as it is in most leagues. There are pretty much only 3rd stringers and the WORST backup guys laying around in FA.

This will be my first week subbing in for a bye... Dunn instead of Jamal. Based on Jamal's performance so far this year, I don't think that's so much to worry about. Subbing in Muhsin for Roy Williams, and I just picked up Braylon Edwards, just in case too...

After this, very little to worry about until week 8.

Yeah, I'm subbing in Indy's D (FA) for Baltimore's and Mushin Muhammad for Jamal Lewis...

...which I should have been doing all along :-#

Are there any stats to show how well a team does after a bye week compared to normal performance?

ugg. I'm getting screwed this week in one league: Jamal Lewis, Clinton Portis, Andre Johnson and Derrick Mason are all goners. Gotta Play najeh davenport and Duce staley, jerome bettis and Lav Coles due to roster limitations. I'm so screwed.
ADMIN edit: please note that the overall sig limit is 12k - thanks!

Why do you even have Staley and Bettis on your roster? Surely there is someone better on the WW.

Good luck

This is great. I have only Charles Rogers on bye (My #5 WR who doesn't even SNIFF the lineup)

My opponent has: Kevin Jones, Andre Johnson, Matt Stover, and the Lions D.

4 starters for him...and we're only allowed 1 pickup per week!

Bye weeks....this is where the men get separated from the boys!

(Or at least who drafted while keeping in mind bye weeks)
