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 | September 10, 2008: September Is the Perfect Time to Be There

Revisiting Charles Kuralt's America for Twin Falls, Montana in September:

September is the perfect time to be there. The sun is slipping away to the south, lengthening the shadows of the haystacks in the fields. The green land is turning golden. Migrating birds are on the wing. The big brown trout are swimming up into the little side streams to spawn. It is time for the county fairs and the rodeos. It is time to start getting the firewood in.

This is not glamorous Montana, where the celebrities are buying up big ranches. That's off to the east, that's Bozeman and Livingston and the Paradise Valley upriver on the Yellowstone (in Montana, upriver almost always means down south) or away up near the Canadian border around Kalispell and Flathead Lake. This is working Montana. . . .
