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...

Auction Redraft Anatomy and Tiered Player Values August 27, 2021

The first fantasy football (FF) league that I ever played in was an auction league. It has now been running for 12 years and we have our draft scheduled for Labor Day Weekend, like usual. Auction redrafts are so much fun and I highly recommend them! I am ...

2021 Dynasty Profile: Bryan Edwards August 27, 2021

Many of us in the dynasty community were excited about Bryan Edwards last year, but based on the stats he put up as a rookie, it is fair to call him a rookie face planter. Historically, wide receivers who fail to reach meaningful thresholds are longshots ...

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...

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...

FFPC SuperFlex Startups: Crazy to Wait on QB? July 26, 2021

SuperFlex (SF) formats have become more and more popular over the last couple of years. In the FFPC Dynasty world, 42% of all startups in 2021 have been SF. This was the going rate back in 2020 as well. Before 2020, SF only made up about 11% of the total ...
