I'm getting a lot of suggestons of dropping some K's and DEF's and picking up some WR and RB's, if I do that an only have one DEF and K what would happen if that K or DEF has a by that week, do I drop that DEF and pick up another?

Correct. You don't have to drop a Defense for a Defense during the bye week. It is generally good strategy to use bench spots for sleeper or backup RBs, sometimes for WRs. They can turn into gold if a starter fails to perform or is injured. Ward in for Jacobs is a perfect example. When the bye weeks come, if one of your stashed RBs is still not doing anything, you can free up a spot to store your preferred Defense for that week by tossing the RB back into the pit.
I also recommend not carrying an extra QB either, unless you are in a huge league or have a strange requirement to start more than one QB.
In dealing with bye weeks you look at the least productive player on your roster, for 2 reasons. One is because you aren't going to miss anything not having them for one week while you fill your bye, and secondly, nobody will pick them up out from under you if they aren't performing.
It may even be your current D/ST or K that you choose to drop...once you get past the top 5-10 of each of those spots, its a matchup game.
