Each NFL team plays 16 games out of 17 weeks in the NFL schedule. The game that they don’t play is called their bye week, or “Open Date”. It is important in fantasy football to make sure that your starters and backups do not have the same bye week since one of the primary reasons for drafting backup players to have coverage during the bye week of your starter.

OFFSEASON MOVEMENT BY POSITION
Free agency was absolutely crazy this season, with several players moving to different teams. Let’s take a look at five players at each position who will no longer be wearing the same uniform in 2016! To see the complete list, click here!
RUNNING BACKS AGED 29+
Better to sell your shares of an aging RB before the wheels fall off entirely. That usually happens around age 29. This is a shortened list, the complete list can be found here. (Note: Ages projected for September 1st, 2018.)
- Frank Gore – Age 35
- Jamaal Charles – Age 32
- LeGarrette Blount – Age 31
- LeSean McCoy – Age 30
OVERUSED RUNNING BACKS
17 running backs have rushed more than 525 times in the past three seasons. These players could be at a higher risk for injury. This is a shortened list, the complete list can be found here.
- Todd Gurley (800)
- Frank Gore (784)
- Devonta Freeman (754)
- Le’Veon Bell (747)
- LeSean McCoy (743)
Third-Year Wide Receivers
There is a common belief among fantasy football players that most NFL wide receivers do not “break out” until their third year in the league. Some have already broken out such as Michael Thomas and Tyreek Hill but many others are on the verge. The complete list of third-year WRs can be found here.
- Robbie Anderson
- Corey Coleman
- Josh Doctson
- Will Fuller
- Sterling Shepard
- Laquon Treadwell
