Bye weeks can sneak up on unsuspecting fantasy football owners. If you're not prepared ahead of time, you could find yourself scrambling to fill multiple roster spots in the same week and could be forced to sacrifice a bench player just to be able to field a complete starting lineup.

They can be especially important to consider within the same position group. For example, if you draft Baker Mayfield as your starting quarterback, you're not going to want to bother adding someone like Ben Roethlisberger, who shares Mayfield's Week 7 bye.

It's also worth noting, not only which weeks have the most teams on bye, but which of those weeks have the most fantasy-relevant players.
