With Bye weeks upcoming

You have one spot open in a given week and with that open spot you still think you have enough to beat your matchup do you drop a player you do not want to drop to fill that spot for one week?

Or just keep your team as is and hope for the best.

Depends, chances are if I don't have the spot and have a defense that goes on a bye, I won't cover them. If you then you can win your match up without a full roster then by all means go for it.

Although if I do have an expendable roster spot I will try to cover a bye week.

I manage around bye weeks, with one week wonders and sometimes just holding pat. I really all depends on where I am in the standings and how bad I need a win to keep up with the pack.
Winning isn't everything- its the only thing!

I rarely have this problem as I work around my bye weeks to make sure I'm covered. But if I'm very confident I will win a week where there is an issue even if I take the zero, and I don't have anyone to drop, I'll roll the dice. It's not just about winning one game, it's about winning a championship.
On any given Sunday any fantasy team can beat another, only to still lose Monday night.
