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 | June 23, 2008: The Kind to Sneak a Meatball into His Tofu

From Dan Jenkins' 1981 Baja Oklahoma:

Candy was barely out of high school when she went to Oregon. The daughter had gone to the same school as Juanita, Paschal High, but Candy had grown up in what was known to most bewildered parents as a period of dope-crazed hippie scum revolution. This was in contrast to Juanita's wonderful era in which kids stalked the elusive V. O. and 7-Up and got angrier at the results of football games than they did at politics.

. . .

Juanita made only three predictions about the "religious person" in Oregon who was enabling hundreds of young people to achieve a heightened consciousness: he would be a twenty-seven-year-old dropout with surfing scars, his sermons would be as deeply meaningful as the dialogue on "Star Trek," and he would, if he weren't watched closely, sneak a meatball into his tofu.
