Earlier in the season (week 6 for example), midway (around week 8-9) or later, near the playoffs (week 11 or 12)?

Midseason or late like week 11 or 12, def wanna get rest as late as possible.  The Packers and Panthers this year, for example, had their byes in week 3, thats usually the worst time to have it cause they now have to play 14 consecutive weeks.  Bye weeks give players time to rest and recover from injuries and stuff like that.

Yeah, it's silly to have a Bye week as early as week 4. They only played 3 games.

It sounds silly but its the only thing they can really do, the TV networks need a full slate of games every weekend.  Interestingly, in 1993, the league had an 18-week season with each team getting 2 bye weeks.  If the league does indeed put a team in London, I'd imagine them going back to that system and cutting a week from the preseason.

Week 11 or 12 so you can heal up and get healthy for the stretch run.
