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 24, 2008: Gurus & Simplicity

From Anthony Storr's 1996 Feet of Clay: Saints, Sinners, and Madmen.

One of the major attractions of some of the faiths propounded by gurus is their simplicity. Many of us harbour a secret wish to be transported back to the world of the nursery, where black is black, and white is white; where the forces of good finally triumph over the forces of evil; where the righteous are taken up into heaven, whilst the wicked perish in the lake of fire. A good deal of the less sophisticated variety of fiction panders to our primitive taste for dividing the world into heroes and villains.
