Best one for me would have to be Wesley Matthews. Impatient owner dropped him after he became injured.

Jameer Nelson for me.

i'd like to add jj hickson, who was floating around in one of my leagues. jordan crawford may end up being "one of those guys," maaaybe. so far, OP nailed it as far as generality, but in my league, i've seen some funny stuff, like some dink dropping brook lopez in week 2 on purpose. i can't remember who he grabbed, but i'm gonna go look it up and not delete any of this pretext.

haha, he grabbed evan turner. lot of suspect moves in there...

Dropped Lopez? Damn. Stuff like that can really screw up leagues.

Wow I thought I played in a shallow league but most of the guys y'all are taking about were drafted/never dropped in mine. Top WW picks in mine were sanders, parsons, vuc and mwp. Guess owners in my league are more patient and dont drop studs.

I feel you. My league is 20 deep and I am now considering picking up Shumpert or Avery Bradley. Nothing on the wire!

I picked up Lou Williams off the WW early in the year. He was drafted then dropped after his slow start. He's been great for me. I also picked up Ed Davis when Bargnani went down. He's worked out well too. On the other hand, I dropped Ramon Sessions really early for Aminu. That one hurt.

Is this a thread in general for pick-ups of the year? or for our individual teams?

If it's in general, we should leave out the 6-10 team leagues, the crazy drops and the crap leagues where you have good players on the wire..there's no point

Yeah I was wondering that, even in my 10 man league all but MWP and Sanders were drafted and haven't hit the wire.

Sanders has definetely been a great WW pick up. Matt Barnes to.

Really? All but those two? how many roster spots do your teams get?

i find it hard to believe that all but two on that list were drafted in a 10-man league and never dropped at some point this year.
