Notable absent players during Week 4 byes

The NFL is through the quarter mark, which means we are into bye weeks. The Lions and Dolphins players will be sidelined in Week 4. We break down the fantasy implications.

The NFL has made it through three weeks of the 2019 season, and that means it’s time for the first bye weeks of the regular season. There will be byes from Week 4 through Week 12, and this is what can make or break playoff teams. Most folks keep some eye on their bye weeks, but if not, we’ll break down the notable players you’ll need to replace each week over these nine weeks.

This week, the San Francisco 49ers and New York Jets are on bye. Le’Veon Bell and George Kittle are the two most notable players, but there are likely some starters you’ll be missing. Matt Breida is the 49ers starting running back until Tevin Coleman gets back. Deebo Samuel has been getting some love, and Dante Pettis got into the end zone in Week 3. Jamison Crowder and Robby Anderson will regain some value once Sam Darnold returns to action, and folks who invested a late pick in suspended tight end Chris Herndon will look to welcome him back soon.
