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.

I'd drop Heyward-Bey down to the grab bag. After watching him against the Chiefs, he MIGHT be as good as Alvin Harper was, IF he was in an explosive offense. In the current Raiders offense, he's awful.

At best, I'd hold onto him only if I was in a VERY deep keeper league.

As for other Raider receivers, only Chaz Schillens has any value, and only as a spot play, and only if you're desperate, and only if he's healthy. Those three conditions haven't been met this season.
