I traded away two of my waiver gold finds for upgrades. But at one point or another I've owned (or still own):

Zac Stacy (packaged with Ray Rice for Demaryius Thomas and Philip Rivers)
Bobby Rainey (packaged with Roddy White for Josh Gordon the week after Rainey's 30+ pt game)
Rashad Jennings (RB2 matchup play with CJ Spiller)
Donald Brown
Jordan Reed (Starting TE)
Panthers D/ST (Starting D/ST)
Dan Bailey (Starting Kicker)

Added a lot of value through the wire. This site also helped immensely with the research.

a lot, but my biggest contributor was easily Le'Veon Bell who was dropped by an impatient owner week 2 or something

vereen isn't too bad either. keenan allen. pretty much any startable TE i've had this season (reed, miller, green), along with streaming D/ST/K. every QB off the waivers was a complete ******** disaster... never again.

missed out on gems like Zac Stacy tho :(

Le'Veon Bell, Montae Ball, K.Allen, Foles, Reed/Myers/Green/Carlson/Pettigrew/Houlser/any TE not named Gronk/Graham. Was in 1st place for most part so it was hard to make moves via waivers from mid-season on due to waiver list being reset every week based on standings.

WW Pickups:

Z. Stacy
J. Reed
K. Allen
Carolina Panthers D (almost every week starter for me)
KC Chiefs D (just picked up, to hold them away from other teams)
L. Green

I guess not that much, although I did trade for guys like J. Thomas, J. Gordon, D. Murray, and L. Bell

I packaged a Heath Miller pickup with M. Vick (pre crumple) and R. Rice for J. Gordon and J. Thomas (and S. Bradford the week before he went on IR)

I've had a lot of other people on my team off waivers at time or the other, but those are the ones I stuck with. L. Green is more of an upside pick, and Chiefs D is more of a keep-away move from other teams, so let's say 4 players who have a realistic chance of doing something for me during the playoffs (J. Reed may get replaced by Green sooner rather than later).
My motto for Fantasy Football: Don't get involved in Shanahanigans.

12 Team Standard PPR league: QB, 2RBs, 2WRs, TE, R/W/T Flex.
Week 15 (Playoffs!):
QB: Kaepernick,
RBs: Stacy, Murray, L. Bell,
WRs: A. Brown, Garcon, K. Allen, Gordon, Patterson
TE:,J. Thomas, Pitta
K: Hartley
DEF: CAR/KC/BUF

In one league I only have 4 players from the original draft. Though I dropped/re-added shane vereen so he barely qualifies.

So thank you to the following players for taking me to the playoffs: Rivers, Woodhead, Alshon, stacy, Andre Brown and Carolina DST.
