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.

Quote of the Day | February 3, 2008: Football's Coming Out Party

From David Maraniss' When Pride Still Mattered:

It was an uncommonly easy one-yard touchdown run, but one that immediately entered the realm of sports mythology. In that moment when Alan Ameche took the handoff from Unitas and churned across the goal line in the late December mist of Yankee Stadium, he ran pro football to a place in the American consciousness that it had never been before.

The Colts' early lead, the Giants' comeback, Marchetti's broken ankle, Giff's bum-luck mark, the daring of Unitas, the hands of Berry, the speed and power of Lenny and The Horse, the cunning of Conerly and the grace of Gifford, the ferocity of Huff and Little Mo, the brilliance of Lombardi and Landry, the last-second field goal, the drive, the violence and sudden death, the rise of television, the cult of the professional---it all came together in what the headline over Tex Maule's story called the best football game every played.
