I dont have any beef with your rankings. They are pretty spot on in fact. I will just throw in my $0.02 on some alternate candidates for your list.
Best Waiver Wire pick up: Demarre Carroll
Most Annoying (healthy) player to own: Roy Hibbert.
Most Annoying (injured) player to own: Larry Sanders. Whereas Holidays mess was the second half of the year, Sanders drama nearly encompassed the entire year.
No. 1 on Never draft list: Derrick Rose. Although I wouldnt draft Kobe either, Id never bet against the most driven player in the game. I guess I kinda am betting against him by not picking him, but he has a much better chance at being an impact player again than Rose imo. I hope Rose can be Rose again, though.
Biggest Nice Surpise: For me, it was the 12th pick in the first round for one of my teams, Anthony Davis. He put a smile on your face each day after checking the box score. His one week absence probably cost me the difference in playing for 3rd instead of 1st, but, boy, was the rest of the season spectacular.
Biggest Disappointing Surprise: Yes, this has to go to an injured player but as for a healthy player, I will go with Jonas Val. This was supposed to be a big year for him, but mostly turned out to be dissapointing.
Next Year Watch List: It is always fun to see the new stars of The NBA, but I guess Im a sentimental guy. For me, the next year will be about rooting and hoping for Kobe, Rose and Nash to make a triumphant return. Im not too hopeful on Nash and a bit on Rose, but I hope Im wrong. Itd be a sad ending to their NBA careers.

Isaiah Thomas should have the largest or second largest jump in fantasy basketball next season. It depends on how people are going to build their team I guess. My bet is for DeAndre Jordan making a bigger jump but time will tell. Some people are dead against throwing a category like Jordan will for your free throws, but I dont mind going 0-23 for the year in fts so Im looking to get DeAndre as well as Andre Drummond who I think will see the 3rd largest jump in draft status. Heck, I might as well get Dwight as well who stinks up fts as well. I think Dwight should see a bump next fantasy season from the 40-something rank he was this year. Maybe 28-34. Some other guys who should have higher rankings next year, but of course nowhere near the jumps of the first 3 I mentioned, are Gordon Hayward, MCW, Kendall Marshall, PJ Tucker, Victor Oladipo and Kyle Lowry. Im not a fan of Kyrie either. Could it be the Dook/Carolina thang. Naw. I just dont think hes worth a 1st or 2nd pick.

Sweet on the Dean Dome visit. I live about 90 minutes se of there. Ok, I really havent seen much of Noel so Im probably off, but from what I saw, he doesnt have a back-to-the-basket game, so the reason I think Noel could get more assists is simply because of my perception of some highlights. His points looked to all come from running the lane and putbacks. I doubt he will have such free reign in The NBA. I did see some nifty passing from him, though, which I think could be used when MCW passes in to him as a decoy and then back to MCW for the splash. As for the steals part, I think he could disrupt some stuff that may lead to a fumbled ball or a steal for someone else. The NBA has less careless players, so I dont think the jumping out to pick a pass type thing will much be in Noels future. Are you taking a speculation pick on him? If so, what round?

I liken him to Brandan Wright but, of course, will put up better numbers because of consistent pt. I predict similar numbers to what you predict except for maybe a bit more assists and less steals. There may be alot of in-out to MCW and Young this next season.
Just for fun, lets look ahead to next year. You have a 50/50 shot at getting a 1-6 player, so how are you ranking 1-6? Lets not go the you're crazy for not putting this guy here and that guy there route. I know this can be a goes-without-saying kinda thing, but lets see what you got. Share who youre targeting in later rounds if you want. My rankings 1. Durant, 2. Anthony Davis, 3. Lebron, 4. Curry, 5. Paul, 6. Love. Anyone think that Deandre and Drummond move into the first round?
Brandon, the 2nd place team was 32.5 games behind you!? Thats insane! What was up with that league? All rookies to the fantasy game or what?
Whats weird about this win is that I was absent for the draft. My first pick was #12 w/ Aldridge.

Fear not. Thomas and Carroll will be back next week. Sadly, the news is bad for Dwight owners such as I is bad. Ive got my fingers and toes crossed on The Brow as hes a big part of why Im in first place. I havent seen the scouting report on Jesus. Im sure he heals quickly.

Id cut ties with Howard and Griffin. Howard is out for 10 or so days so yes, go get Asik. Griffin is said to miss Mondays game. For Griffin there is a day off and then back to backs, but even if hes better why wouldnt The Clips give him more time to recover? Its a gamble but Id try to get a good replacement. Matt Barnes would benefit from Griffins absence so maybe you can get him. Thomas is playing next week. When is the question. Im betting the first game of the week. With Westbrook, just hope he has a monster game to make up for only 2 games. I doubt you could find a better alternative in fa for 2 games.

Didnt you already post this question? My answer is still DeAndre because, in my opinion, none of the other players excel more at their position than Deandre does at Center.

Ok. You had no idea Korver would be hurt. He hasnt played in quite some time and doesnt have a timetable to return. So great move there. Sometimes in the fantasy game you have to give more to get less. Did you try a 1/1 trade first? That mightve been the smarter move at that time but hindsight is always 20/20. Just as long as it suits your team. Right now the trade is very lucky and a smart move at the same time. I dont know if its about smarts or if its about being newbies to the fantasy game, but they certainly got it wrong here. Good luck in these last couple rounds if you are still in it.

It looks like youd win the blocks category with Davis and Drummond anyway. Not to mention Hawes can get you a couple here and there. Maybe you could drop Hibbert him for a player that helps you in another category.

You are undoubtedly winning your 3s, so Id cut ties with Korver. Twolves may hold out Pek for a good amount of time since they have a fitting replacement with Dieng, so Id drop Pek for Dieng. Im sure you realize that few things in fantasy sports are without risk, but it looks like your team can take that risk. I dont know anything about Sims but with Sessions and The Bucks, who the heck knows who their next breakout player will be. They come and go so much so Id look for a different replacement for Korver. I think itd be a wise move to get rid of Iggy. I wish I could take a look at the fa pool in your league.

Yes. You gotta drop Korver to possibly stay alive. Im not sure Bel is the player to get, though. He may see a spike for a game or two, but I doubt more than that. Will Korver be ready to play after Marco possibly had his 1 or 2 sparks. I picked up Harkless for him. He may get more pt with Jameer Nelson out.

I was thinking to myself, wow, you can pick up Thaddeus Young as a fa!? Then it hit me, oh yeah, theres another Young in the NBA. I would not keep a player that has an uncertain return date. That alone could cost you your matchup. They may just want to keep him out until the NBA playoffs and, of course, that does you no good. Drop Iggy for Nick Young or if you are that concerned about Oladipos tos maybe you can drop Iggy and Oli for Young and someone else. I say to just bite the dust with the tos and enjoy Olis other stats.
