Dynasty draft kicks off

I know people have asked for more Dynasty League content, and while I think we cover young and emerging players very well, which can obviously be applied to Dynasty, the fact is I’ve never even played in this format. So when a subscriber and MB poster randomly sent me a tweet to see if I’d be interested in joining a new Dynasty league with all FantasyGuru.com subscribers, I figured I’d give it a shot, specifically to help with our content in this area.

The first step is to cover the draft, which kicked off last night. I will continue to cover this slow draft (16 hour deadline for each pick) throughout the rest of the spring and summer, and as we move along I will cover my team, pickups, drops, etc. Hopefully, this will help me become a little more aware of the whole dynasty thing.

    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season.
