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.

Week 15 | Waiver Wired: The Bess of What's Around

My weekly "Waiver Wired" column is up at Rotoworld for Week 15. Summary is below, but click here for the full article. Keep in mind this article is through Rotoworld and is intended for more shallow redraft leagues as opposed to a deeper roster Dynasty league.


The pickings are getting slim on the waiver wire. With apologies to 1990s college rock icon Dave Matthews, we've reached the point of the season where "the best of what's around" isn't all that exciting.

There are, however, several viable plug 'n' plays for Week 15 playoff participants. Dolphins receiver Davone Bess has been rolling ever since taking over for Greg Camarillo, and he has a terrific matchup at home against the Niners this week. Sticking with the same game, Shaun Hill is amazingly stilled unowned in half of all leagues despite entering the fantasy playoffs as a Top-10 quarterback option. Now that Maurice Morris has finally pinned Julius Jones to the bench, he has an enticing Week 15 matchup at St. Louis.

This week's column will feature the best plug 'n' play options for playoff owners. On to the list. Here is how I rank the top players available at each position. Full writeups of each player are below.
