It trips up even the best fantasy football owner from time to time.

The dreaded bye week.

Our fantasy football guru Mike Baldwin says you need to be especially careful of not starting a player whose team has a bye this week. Unlike previous weeks when a couple teams were off, this week a whopping six teams are off. That means it’s pretty darn likely that someone on your fantasy roster won’t be playing this week, and that means they won’t be earning you any points.

Among the players who will be off: Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck, San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers and Chicago running back Matt Forte.

Want to know what other prime fantasy football players are off? How about some suggestions about who to pick up in their absence? Check out Mike’s advice in this edition of the Hudiburg Fantasy Football Update.
