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.

Grossman, Rex: Value Notes

KellysHeroes 5/4/07: I think you should bump up Grossman.. last yr was really his 1st yr as a starter..
He's only 27 and had 23 TDs too 20 INTs.. you got to figure those #s are only going to improve after 1 yr of real PT.

Sons of the Tundra 5/4/07: Last year he finished as QB 15 in FBG in scoring...even worse in points per game, which is the one that counts.

QB 15-20 is not good. I can't use that. It gets worse -- look at how inconsistent he was: great game one week, simply atrocious the next. You never know when the stinker is coming or when he'll play out of his ###. Rex Grossman's play is a recipe for fantasy failure.

If you want further reasoning: he's been injury prone, he's well below average in accuracy, he's a turnover machine, he's been an immature headcase at times, he's crumbled under pressure, and he's a threat to lose his job weekly.

I don't figure Grossman's numbers will improve. Why do we always assume a player is going to get better when they're not playing well? How often does it work that way? I think it's safer to assume that Rex will lose his job before his play improves.
