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 | October 19, 2008: Never Try to Sit on the Ball. . . .

From David Maraniss' 1999 biography of Vince Lombardi, When Pride Still Mattered:

Old pros might not make mistakes, but relatively new pro coaches do. Conerly killed as much of the clock as possible in careful drives, but the Bears came backk on two sensational touchdown catches by the winged Harlon Hill, and the game ended in a tie, 17 to 17. It was a lesson that Lombardi filed away for the rest of his career. Never try to sit on the ball for an entire quarter, needlessly stifling an offense. "From then on," Lombardi said later, "we played every game like the score was nothing to nothing."
