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.

Game Notes | Week 16: Eagles @ Redskins

Donovan McNabb - Fumbled after getting hit from behind by Jason Taylor, which led to the Redskins first touchdown. Beautiful pass hitting Westbrook in stride down the sideline for a 47-yard gain. Eagles can't get open deep, and the Skins are squeezing them tight. McNabb hurried and throwing too low for his receivers can handle. He's low everything, may have mechanical issues. Receivers aren't getting any separation, and they've dropped 8 passes. Almost hooked up with Reggie Brown and the game-tying touchdown, but Reggie Brown cut his route just short of the goal-line and was stopped short with time running out.

Brian Westbrook - Hauled in a 47-yard catch-and-run down the sidelines but was caught from behind. Tackled inside the 5-yard line by Chris Horton. Limped off the field with 2:30 left in the game, returned but acceleration is missing.

DeSean Jackson - Took a huge hit from LaRon Landry right as the ball hit his hands. Got behind DeAngelo Hall in the fourth quarter, but he dropped what would have been a long gainer. Got behind DeAngelo Hall again on a bomb in the endzone, perfectly thrown ball but Jackson was just unable to make the play. Should have been a touchdown. Four of the seven drops were by DeSean Jackson.

Reggie Brown - Hit just before breaking the plain of the goal-line, and the clock ran out.

L.J. Smith -

Jason Campbell - Once again, he couldn't get anything going beyond 10 yards. He doesn't run a lot, but he's an effective scrambler when he does. Should have been picked off by Asante Samuel.

Clinton Portis - Left briefly with a sprained left wrist, returned in 2nd half. Stopped just 10 inches shy of the goal-line, but comes back with the TD on the next carry. Banged up again, trainers looking at his shoulder.

Ladell Betts - Betts hauled on several short passes and was Jason Campbell's best receiving option in the first half.

Santana Moss - Moss was active on underneath routes, but he couldn't accomplish anything deep against the Philly corners.

Chris Cooley -
