Here's the deal. My team is solid. I should be in first place in my league. I'm in fourth though, and I'm starting to freak - and this is when I start to make stupid decisions about cutting guys.
I really need to start kicking ass to catch up, especially if I lose Priest Holmes... so I'm opening this up for advice. All the guys in this league work also work in the IT department with me, so it is vital that I destroy them
Note: The scoring is screwy in this league, and the rankings seem to be all jacked up. I have no idea how Yahoo is ranking players because pretty much all D players are ranked sequentially after 400 or so, despite what their stats are.

You certainly don't have anything on your bench that screams "Play me!" Your starters are all fine. Holmes will play this week, too. I was kind of hoping he didn't because the head-to-head I am playing this week has Holmes. Rats.
There's a small case to be made for starting Brady (as mentioned in another thread) since he is playing the Jets and will probably throw a lot. Culpepper will probably light it up against the Lions though, plus you get rushing yeards out of him you won't get out of Brady. I'd stick with what you have as well....
As much as it pains me to say it, Keyshawn is the only glaring problem you have on offense. See if you can pawn him off on somebody who doesn't know what they're doing or someone who's looking for a "big name" reciever. He doesn't get the yardage in the Gruden offense and he doesn't score as much as he used to during his "Just give me the damn ball" days. I love the guy to death and was estatic when I found out he got signed by the Bucs, but his stats aren't that great for fantasy football.

The only glaring problem is see is starting Curtis Martin. The Jets abandon the run too early, so Curtis Martin wont get a lot of yards. After Week 3, you should replace Martin with Joey Galloway, since, believe it or not, Dallas has the #1 ranked offense in the league, mostly because of their passing game, and Galloway is their #1 receiver. Keyshawn should get more looks from Brad Johnson since Jurevicious is gonna be out for a while, so you should keep him there.
Jim Haslett should be fired. This is the second straight year that New Orleans has just flat-out folded in the last month of the season. Three losses to the dregs of the NFL is inexcusable. My first-round picks: Giants, Packers, Jets, Steelers.
