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 | November 13, 2008: The Scales of Justice

Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts from Charlie Jones' 1997 What Makes Winners Win:

It's like the scales of justice. Picture this. The left side of the scales is piled full of talent and the right side is piled full of brains. When you being your career, it's full of the physical and almost void of the mental.

Then as you get further along in your career, it goes the other way. The balance shifts to the mental side as your physical abilities deteriorate and your mental capabilities accelerate.

The frustrating thing is, you can see your body aging right before your eyes, but you know so much more about the game and how to play it. That's really the way I always felt, especially as I got past the middle of my career. I felt, geez, I can't play forever but I'm learning more every day.
