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 | January 5, 2009: You Gotta Tear Down the Old. . .

From Northern Exposure's 1994 episode "Up River":

JOEL: So, I gather you're over your anxiety about the remodel, huh?

CHRIS: Yeah, well, that remodel shock's a distant nightmare. Great lesson. Real watershed, though, you know?

JOEL: No, what do you mean?

CHRIS: Well, guy like me tries to get his space together, put a three-piece suit on it, and the universe, with its big ursine paws, just slaps it down like a house of cards, you know, and it ruins everything. Next thing you know I'm homeless, cast out like some sap kneeling in the mud.

WILLY: I finished the steps.

CHRIS: OK. Thanks, Willy.

JOEL: Well . . .

CHRIS: Thing is, Joel, what's a house? It's a metaphor, right? For the mind. Isn't that what it's all about? You gotta tear down the old before you can build the new, you know? You gotta lose your mind before you can find it. The universe whacked my house, it was really whacking my mind, you see. Let go, give up, man. Throw out all those old plans and stick your face in the here and now. And whether this works out, or it doesn't, I'm a free man.
