Notable absent players during Week 11 byes

Two more weeks of byes in the NFL remain. In Week 11, byes include the Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks, and Tennessee Titans. We break down the fantasy implications.

This past weekend had six byes, with the Denver Broncos, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington, all getting a rest. That meant no Deshaun Watson, Tom Brady, Leonard Fournette, DeAndre Hopkins, and Julian Edelman. For Week 11, we see four teams out. We are now over the six-team bye week hump from Week 10 and have two more weeks with four byes left.

We’ll take a look at the notable players you’ll need to replace each week over these next two weeks. This week’s byes include the Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks, and Tennessee Titans. There are some notable names sidelined, so fantasy football decisions are going to continue to be tight.

Week 11 will see some prominent performers’ names sidelined. We lose two top quarterbacks in Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers and two streamable quarterbacks in Ryan Tannehill and Daniel Jones. But running backs look like they’ll take the hardest hit with Aaron Jones, Chris Carson, Derrick Henry, and Saquon Barkley all going bye.

Tyler Lockett, a finally healthy Davante Adams, and a hot Golden Tate will take a seat on the couch in Week 11, while two tight ends will get an extra week to heal. Evan Engram and Delanie Walker need some rest for their foot and ankle woes, so the bye comes at an excellent time for them.
