Put a spreader beam across several of them and jack the house a bit. Add the new, including bands, and sill plate if necessary.

NOW! Why are they rotted? Unflashed deck or windows?

MY first answer was simplified, but the truth is, I've never seen the joist ends bad without soft saggy plates too. Get 3-4 house jacks and lift at 8 joists if you need to replace 4-6, etc. If necessary, unbolt band and cut it out. Also, if necessary, add more bolts. Use PT wood for band and sill, and Hot dipped nails, and hot-dipped bolts.
