NFL's Extended Schedule with a 17th Game

Sorry if this was posted elsewhere and I missed it…

How is Ottoneu going to handle the extended schedule to 17 games in 2021? Will there just be another regular season matchup?

The reason why I ask is that bye weeks will now extend to Week 14, which could create an unfair disadvantage for a team whose star player(s) happen to have the late bye week if playoffs were to start that week.

I’ve been meaning to address this.

The regular season will be extended to 14 games and weeks 15-17 will be the playoffs in 2021-22. Week 18 will be treated as Week 17 was treated in the past, as outside the Ottoneu Fantasy Football season.
