Lows:
Drafting Ricky Rubio (keeper league but I have doubts that he'll become a top 10 PG in the next 5 years)
Picking up Larry Sanders and dropping him after a few bad games, then see him starting the rest of the way when someone else already owns him

Highs:
Trading Brandon Jennings/Chris Bosh for Nickola Vucevic/Anthony Davis (it is a keeper league and I see bright future with the Brow)
Picking up Eric Gordon (not proven yet but I highly expect him to play the rest of the way, to showcase his talent to other teams or make it up for the franchise)

Lows:

Drafting Gortat in the 3rd round.

Dropping David West and Pekovic during early slumps, not sure what I was thinking when dropping West, pretty stupid reasoning at the time.

Trading Harden (when he was shooting piss poor) and LMA for Lebron.

Highs:

Picking up Faried, Sanders, Kirilenko, Mayo off the wire. (8 man, Kirilenko and Mayo were early pickups, Faried was just a dumb drop by another guy in my league).

Drafting Lillard in the 10th round.

Being in first despite what I feel were pretty boneheaded moves.

Lows:
-Drafting Granger by passing on Gay and George
-Drafting Gordon; stayed injured so I dropped him, but got picked up by another owner on the only days I didn't have access to the internet because I was away camping)
-Drafting Bargnani thinking he was going to finally turn it around and become the star player the Raptors (and I) hoped for
-Hibbert... enough said.

Highs:
-Drafted Damian Lillard :D
-Picked up Barnes, Vucevic, and Dudley off waivers as they began their moderately consistent production/hot streak
-Potential high: Rubio coming back to fantasy relevance asap

7 man league.

Lows: First time playing, had no idea what I was doing. First 5 picks were all injured players: Rose, Love, Stoudemire & Nowitzki. Coming 3rd now though after doing a lot of reading and research.

Highs: Traded Iggy/Jamal for Batum, Allen for Josh Smith & Joe Johnson for Conley.

Lillard with my last pick just off a hunch. Read a few articles on last years draft picks and looked him up. Also got Brandon Knight who I dropped early on.

Picked so many people off WW with the strategy that I would bundle them in with people who I drafted for higher draft picks. Eventually worked my way to my lineup now.

10-Team keeper league, 18 players roster each team:

Lows: 1.Keep Gortat instead of Curry(ankle issue), Jennings(share ball with Ellis), Paul George (Granger Effect), Dragic(center rare than point guard).
          2. draft lots of busts: Beasley at 9th, Brandon Roy at 12th, Devin Harris at 16th
          3. drop Chandler Parsons at 1st week of season when he post mediocre stat.
          4. because of bad draft and waiver decisions, used 19 moves already, only total 60 moves allowed all season.

Highs: 1. draft Batum(5th), DeRozan(13th), Vucevic(14th) and they paid off.
          2. Anderson Varejao went off and wins me rebounds almost every week although recently injured, but I still have just enough help(Vucevic) on the boards.
          3. Pick up Jameer Nelson via waiver wire

After overhaul my roster, my team right now slowly climbing standings from 7th early season to 3rd now. But still need Isaiah Thomas, Hedo Turkoglu, Patrick Patterson, Trevor Ariza and Shannon Brown those 5 pick up from waiver wire to perform well in order to compete since my league has boss whose team(contains LBJ, KD, Chris Paul and many others) just too damn good to beat.

Passing on Paul George/Batum for Tyreke

why...

He was putting up 20, 5, 5 so he was proven and plantar fasciitis shouldn't hinder your game after recovery.

Gortat is working his way back up so that pick will have been worth it.

Although I do feel sorry for your Pekovic loss haha, I love the guy and always targeted him in every one of my leagues. Was able to draft him quite low in 3/4 leagues.

He was amazing his first week, blocking things like LA traffic so I was enamored a bit ha, glad he's stringing it back together.

Thanks man, I drafted him as well, really should've held on.

Taking Hordford in the 2nd, thinking he would explode. He has been decent but only around 4th/5th round value

Elton Brand in the 8th, crazy

Took Harden 12th overall after the trade, it's paid off.
Drafting Pekovic in the mid rounds
Grabbing Barnes, Ed Davis, Leonard, and Vucevic off waivers at different points in the season.

Lows

- Drafted Ty Lawson early (1st-2nd rounds) in both my 14 team league.
- Drafted Ersan mid round (money league 10)
- Drafted Gordon Hayward around 8th-10th round in 3 of my leagues. He's decent, but there was a greater number of available options to be had.
- Wasted a last pick on Jonas. I did it in all my leagues -_-
- Drafted Isaiah Thomas 7th. (14 team)
- Wasted a late pick on Jeff Green and Kanter. (14 team)
- Missed out on Steph Curry. He went late round in my money league and I waited too long. Shouldve grabbed him in the previous round.


Mids

- Drafted Hibbert mid-round in 3 leagues. Just needs to get that FG% up



Highs

Most or all of the bad draft picks I made, I managed to reverse it by picking up great players.

-Own Grieves Vasquez in all my leagues (drafted him late round and picked him up in one league after going undrafted)
- Drafted Batum, Lillard, and Paul George around 4th-8th round. All solid picks.
- Picked up Pek early in the season after he was dropped.
- Picked up Parsons
- Picked up Metta
- Picked up E. Gordon
- Picked up Jameer Nelson after he was dropped

really? I find him crap in real life, but decent for fantasy if you're punting TO's and FG%

I'll admit I've only watched about a few games worth of him though
