Whether you are planning to sit out for the weekend when your favorite team has time off or hitting the golf course for a round of 18, bye weeks in the NFL will give fans and players time away from the game.

We all know that when your favorite team is not on the field you are still watching football or setting your fantasy lineups. Nothing is worse than drafting players with the same bye-week. Here is a great primer to save you time and to schedule your midday tee time:

2024 bye-week observations

Two weekends with no teams on a bye is interesting, but the NFL opted to overkill the following weeks with six teams following those non-bye weeks. The NFL also has only two teams on bye weeks twice, yet still opt to start the bye week schedules in Week 5.
