Most Dropped: February 3-9

  1. Luke Ridnour (11.5 points, 1.1 three-pointers, 5.7 assists, 1.3 steals, 90.8% FT%): Ridnour headlines our most dropped list for a second consecutive week as fantasy owners choose to let him go while he's dealing with a personal matter. Luke, though, is having one of the best seasons of his career and should take back the starting point guard duties when he rejoins the team. Ridnour is still rated in our top 75 and we'd add him quickly if he's available.
  2. Trevor Ariza (11.1 points, 1.1 three-pointers, 5.5 rebounds, 1.7 steals): Ariza is dealing with an ankle injury that could keep him out until after the All Star break. Ariza is a must add for anyone who needs steals, as long as your team can withstand his awful 39.4% FG%.
  3. DeAndre Jordan (6.8 points, 7 rebounds, 1.7 blocks, 67.3% FG%): Like Ridnour, Jordan appears on this list for another week. He has been struggling offensively and on the boards in recent games, but he's still a shot blocking force. In his last five games, DeAndre is averaging 2.2 blocks and should be picked up by anyone needing help in that category. While Chris Kaman is getting closer to returning, we wouldn't drop Jordan until Kaman plays a few games and proves he's healthy.
  4. Darko Milicic (9.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 blocks): Darko is another big time shot blocker that fantasy owners are putting on the waiver wire. He suffered a recent hip injury, but shouldn't be out more than a couple of games. For those that need blocks, Milicic is a better long term option than Jordan since he has the starting center spot locked up.
  5. Aaron Brooks (11.9 points, 1.4 three-pointers, 4 assists, 95.8% FT%): Brooks owners are starting to get frustrated with the young point guard. While his numbers are down from last season, Aaron's main problem is his pathetic 36.1% FG%. If he can find his stroke, he'll get his scoring numbers back up and possibly take back the starting point guard spot. At this point, it's anyone's guess whether that will happen this season.

How does Ariza manage to shoot so terribly with Chris Paul getting him open looks?
