Fantasy football - bye weeks are a-comin'

One of the most feared and dreaded times of the fantasy football season is between week 4 and 10 when bye weeks take away fantasy players...

In Week 4, Dallas, Minnesota, Kansas City and Tampa Bay are on the bye.

The result is top tier players like Vikings back Adrian Peterson, Cowboys receiver Miles Austin, Cowboys QB Tony Romo and Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe are headed to the bench.

But not to fear fellow fantasy football fanatics. There are bye-week replacements out there and they should be productive.

Miami quarterback Chad Henne and Jets QB Mark Sanchez are on most waiver wires and should be solid one-week replacements if you need them. Both quarterbacks have been throwing the ball all over the place and producing double-digit points.
If you need a back, New England back BenJarvus Green-Ellis or Baltimore back Willis McGahee might still be available on your waiver wire.

If you need a receiver, Denver receiver Brandon Lloyd, New Orleans receiver Lance Moore and to a lesser extent (and I mean less production) San Francico receiver Josh Morgan are still on waiver wires.
The exception could be Moore who is the waiver-wire flavor of the week with his 149-yard, 2 TD performance last week.
