The next handful of players are a few guys you might have been holding on to, but can probably cut ties with at this point:
Peyton Hillis - RB - Cleveland Browns
Hillis has already been ruled out for Week 11 and has been largely ineffective even when he does make it out onto the field. If you're hurting bad at RB, go ahead and keep him on the off-chance he turns things around, but don't expect any miracles.
Maurice Morris - RB - Detroit Lions
You probably grabbed him when you saw that Jahvid Best was going to be out for awhile, but my bet is that you haven't even used him. If you have, you were likely just as disappointed with the results as it seems the Detroit coaching staff is.
The signing of Kevin Smith and slight usage of him on Sunday despite his only being on the team for a short time indicates that a change is coming to the backfield real soon, whether it be with Smith leading the way or a return of Best.
LaDainian Tomlinson - RB - New York Jets
The guy has basically done nothing since Week 3 of the season, and now that he's injured his knee again, you can't expect production to take a turn for the better anytime soon.
Cut him loose and go take a chance on someone else at this point.
Hines Ward - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
If you were holding onto the old man hoping that he'd somehow find the elusive fountain of youth, you can put your hopes to rest now...both he and the Steelers have called off the search.
