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 | March 4, 2009: A Man Who Is Cautious

Former baseball owner and showman Bill Veeck speaking to his manager Tony LaRussa in 1981 . . . and overheard by the Washington Post's Thomas Boswell:

A man who is cautious never sleeps with a girl, quite. He's so timid he never savors anything completely. Even an after-dinner speaker should be a little drunk on a tightrope. It keeps everyone's attention. Don't be cautious, Tony. Just don't be injudicious. If you write out your remarks it's an insult to an audience. It shows that your first priority is to protect yourself from them. They sense it. If you just have a few notes on a scrap paper, you'll walk away with more friends. They'll think, "Hey, he's honest."
