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 | December 6, 2008: A New and Totally Different Way

From Frederick Exley's A Fan's Notes, 1968:

All Paddy's stay in Avalon Valley had been characterized by that apartness, that singleness of purpose that might indeed reveal him as a man somehow more gifted than other men, a man who might come to truths not given to other men. Paddy knew by then, by my silence, that I wanted to hear. Typically, he made me wait -- wait for what seemed an infinitely long time. When he finally did speak, I felt like an intelligent fin de siecle priest who, having been given a copy of Darwin, sits now staring at the unopened book, not so much fearing that he won't be able to accept the book's truths, as that the great world, which for so long in his mind has looked one way, will, by his simply turning a book cover begin to look a new and totally different way.
