Bye Weeks suck no matter what, but it can suck even more in Dynasty Leagues. Carrying your entire roster over year after year leaves you at the mercy of the schedule makers, and they don’t give a crap that your best 3 LBs are all on BYE the same week. This brought up an interesting dilemma in one of my Dynasty Leagues this week. A guy took a “zero” from one of his LBs, who was on BYE, because he didn’t want to cut him. Fortunately for him, he still won. But it goes to show the calculated gambles you have to take in Dynasty Leagues. Nowhere is it more important than the waiver wire. After week 1, you couldn’t have found an owner of Lawrence Timmons that would have traded him straight up for Sean Lee. Now it’s the other way around. While talent usually prevails and I believe Timmons will eventually regain form, Dynasty IDPers have to know when to take the calculated gambles.
