I may be in trouble. When you are in a hurry in a draft you sometimes miss the "bye week" that a player is off on until after you pull the trigger.

Peter King points out in his Football Morning in America column that the league opted to park a quartet of byes in Week 14 without realizing that it would land on the first week of fantasy playoffs. On that weekend, the Patriots, Colts, Dolphins, and Eagles won’t play.

It’s not an ideal situation for the fantasy crowd (which generates plenty of interest and revenue for the league), but it’s one of the byproducts of stretching the regular season over 18 weeks. For example, one of the teams that will be off in Week 14 — the Dolphins — specifically asked not to have a bye after playing the Jaguars in London in Week Six. (Miami instead has a home game the following Sunday against the Falcons, who will be emerging from a bye after a Week Five game in London against the Jets.)

The good news is that those who play fantasy football can account for this quirk when putting their teams together. Plenty of other factors, including most notably injuries, can’t be.

Wouldn't the fantasy playoffs be in Weeks 15-17 with Week 18 off this year instead of Weeks 14-16 with Week 17 off like they have been since bye weeks were introduced?
