Free-agent additions can make a huge impact on a hurting roster, and you sure want to grab hot free agents in your fantasy league before your competitor does.
While we aren’t seeing anywhere close to the amount of injuries this year compared to last year’s injury-riddled, lockout-shortened NBA season, there are plenty of key players that have suffered early season aches and pains.
From Amar'e Stoudemire to Dirk Nowitzki to Kevin Love, there are quite a few marquee names that have had the injury bug strike.
If your fantasy team is also suffering from the injury bug, then the free-agency pool has likely become your new best friend.
Relying on the waiver wire is not something you aim for in fantasy sports, but finding a free-agent gem can give your team a huge boost.
Every league is different in how deep it is or what categories hold more weight, but here are some smart free agent pickups for your fantasy team to hold you over while you await your star players to return.
