Welcome to the "Original" Dynasty Rankings Fantasy Football Blog

This blog was born out of a Dynasty Rankings thread originally begun in October, 2006 at the Footballguys.com message boards. The rankings in that thread and the ensuing wall-to-wall discussion of player values and dynasty league strategy took on a life of its own at over 275 pages and 700,000 page views. The result is what you see in the sidebar under "Updated Positional Rankings": a comprehensive ranking of dynasty league fantasy football players by position on a tiered, weighted scale. In the tradition of the original footballguys.com Dynasty Rankings thread, intelligent debate is welcome and encouraged.

Full Contact: Playoff Rules / Set-up


C-01 – Playoff Team & Setup

bullet Playoffs will consist of the top six teams in the League.
bullet Each team is allowed to protect up to one starting team for the playoffs. Obviously, the players used must be from teams who have made the NFL playoffs.
bullet If a fantasy team does not have enough players to complete a starting team, then that team enters the playoffs with a short team.
bullet There is no additional drafting for Super Bowl playoff money.
bullet A starting team consists of one of the two options used during the regular season.
bullet Teams are permitted to change their playoff roster during the playoffs as long as your substitute’s team wins. IE; If you have a QB from division winner who gets a bye, and a wild card QB you are permitted to start your wild card QB and if the team wins the game, you are permitted to change to your division winning QB for the 2nd week of the playoffs. If you wild card QB team loses, then you lose the QB position for the remainder of the playoffs. Any questions on this ask Tom, Dan or Dave M.
bullet Trading of Playoff players is not allowed after the playoffs begin.
