State of FFPC Dynasty: Cut Trade Keep March 28, 2022

Hello FFPC fans! It has been a while since I wrote about the state of the Dynasty landscape. I took my lumps in the championship round, failing to win a single ship out of 12 teams that made the dance. All in all, I did just a little better than break-eve...

Dynasty Rookie Pick Hit Rates in FFPC: Part 2 March 11, 2022

Last summer I wrote about my historic FFPC dynasty rookie hit rates, and how those later picks in the third and fourth rounds typically hold at least a couple of gems. If you can find the space on the limited roster in this format, those later picks are w...

FFPC Dynasty & Redraft Series: Championship Week December 31, 2021

It’s been a wild few weeks since the FootballGuys Players Championship (FBG) playoffs started. I think there might be a couple of NFL players that haven’t either got COVID or been injured. They’re not on my squads, though. It has been something else...

FFPC Dynasty & Redraft Series: Week 13 December 3, 2021

The playoffs are here!! That’s right, in the Footballguys Players Championship and Main Event, the regular season ended in Week 12. The top four seeds advanced to the league playoffs that started Thursday night. Some prize money will be locked up this w...

FFPC Dynasty & Redraft Series: Week 10 November 12, 2021

There are only a few weeks of the fantasy football regular season left to go before the playoffs. According to my research, the magic number to make the playoffs in FFPC dynasty leagues is 29 Victory Points (VP). This week is probably about the last chanc...

FFPC Dynasty & Redraft Series: Week 9 November 5, 2021

All I can really say about Week 8 is that I did alright overall. I would classify it as a “come-back-to-Earth” kind of week. I had solid results in Redraft and really didn’t do so well at all in Dynasty. But by having performed so well up to this po...

FFPC Dynasty & Redraft Series: Week 8 October 29, 2021

The bye-apocalypse last week was a big mountain to climb, but Week 8 is roughly the midpoint of the fantasy season and it is already here. For teams that won’t make the playoffs, it is already past that point. The separation is becoming clearer between ...

FFPC Dynasty & Redraft Series: Week 7 October 22, 2021

Week 6 was another solid week across the board, but Week 7 waits for nobody! This has long been expected to be one of the toughest bye weeks of the season as so many premier players are out. To say nothing of injuries. I have had to really ball out to fil...

FFPC Dynasty & Redraft Series: Week 6 October 15, 2021

One of my best SF teams is from a startup from last year where I waited on QB, a strategy I endorse. Now I have Josh Allen and Aaron Rodgers and am #1 in points scored through five weeks. I had the top score in 3/5 weeks. 4-1 H2H, yet I am second in my di...

FFPC Dynasty & Redraft Series: Week 5 October 8, 2021

I am prepared to say that after around almost 20 years of playing fantasy football, I have never been more wrong on any single take than I was on Brandon Aiyuk vs. Deebo Samuel. In last week’s column, I said that I felt comfortable trusting Aiyuk from h...

FFPC Dynasty & Redraft Series: Week 4 October 1, 2021

I knew the Cleveland Browns defense was going to be tough for Justin Fields and the Bears offense to contend with, but I didn’t think it would yield one of the all-time worst performances by an offense in the history of the game. I had a lot of success ...

FFPC Dynasty & Redraft Series: Week 3 September 24, 2021

Whew. This past week was much better than the first. Most of my teams that started off with a loss got back to even and a number of solid teams moved to 2-0. Sadly there are more 0-2 teams in my portfolio than I would like. We know a lot more about the la...

FFPC Dynasty & Redraft Series: Week 2 September 17, 2021

As I got comfortable in my recliner a few minutes before kickoff this past Sunday, I told my wife about how the first week of NFL action can be really wild. I explained a little about the nonsense with Trey Sermon (RB - SF) being deactivated, and that alt...

FFPC Dynasty & Redraft Series: Week 1 September 10, 2021

The 2021 NFL season starts this week! Tampa Bay and Dallas kick off on Thursday night but you can still draft a Footballguys Players Championship team through Saturday. First place pays $500,000 and I finished third in the contest in 2019. It is now my li...

Chasing Ships and Flipping Pieces: Part 3 August 25, 2021

The season is almost upon us! In FFPC leagues, there are barely two weeks left before we have to cut our rosters down to 20, including a kicker and a defense. On some of my dynasty squads, I am facing some steep cuts and difficult choices. How do I go abo...

Dynasty Rookie Pick Hit Rates in FFPC August 20, 2021

Most rookie drafts are done by now, though there may still be a few going on. If you are reading this and you still have some late-round draft picks for this year, don’t give them up just yet! You may think they are worthless or that you don’t have ro...

How Much Is A FFPC Dynasty Roster Spot Worth? July 29, 2021

How much is a dynasty roster spot worth? Or how much should it be worth? Has anyone really tried to come up with a quantitative measure that can be actionable in some way when we are managing our dynasty rosters? We have trade calculators, rankings, proje...

Chasing Ships and Flipping Pieces: Part 1 June 23, 2021

Would you ever trade a dollar bill for three quarters? If not, can you at least imagine a scenario where you would? If it wasn’t for charity or goodwill, but an actual self-serving purpose? No? Well, try this one on. Maybe I’m driving my family in the...
