The past two weeks have been challenging for fantasy football managers to navigate as a number of the top teams had their off week. In Week 9, it was the Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers, and Jacksonville Jaguars.
This past week the Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins, Los Angeles Rams, and Philadelphia Eagles were on bye and teams were likely scrambling to find replacements for players like Patrick Mahomes, Jalen Hurts, A.J. Brown, Travis Kelce, and Tyreek Hill.
Who are the top fantasy football players on bye week in Week 11?
This upcoming week doesn't have many of those top tier players but there are a number of players who have been weekly starters that are on bye this week. The four teams that are on bye is the Atlanta Falcons, Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, and New Orleans Saints.
The team that probably has the most starters, but is probably the most frustrating, has to be the Atlanta Falcons. They have drafted some talented players who were expecting to be factors in fantasy football like Kyle Pitts, Drake London, and Bijan Robinson.
However, Arthur Smith has not highlighted them as much as many would have thought. The good news is that Bijan Robinson is gaining some momentum as of late with 50 more rushing yards in each of the past three games and two rushing touchdowns.
Among the other teams, the running back position is probably the one impacted the most as Jonathan Taylor, Alvin Kamara, and Rhamondre Stevenson all have the weekend off with their teams on bye.
