Week seven will likely be a wild one. Bye weeks begin in earnest, and of course, you have the pile of injuries that continues to stack up. It will be a “last man standing” situation this week. And you want to be Bruce Willis, not Tim Allen. By the way, what pretentious title for the sitcom “Last Man Standing”. It is no wonder that the show was canceled. I know the rest of us are just a bunch of vegan, chai-sipping wussies staring at our phones, but do you think you could outlast all of us? C’mon Tim, Tool Time is over. Don’t embarrass the good folks at Binder. And with that, now on to the list.

I often find myself excavating free agency for Wide Receivers to fill out the bottom of my dynasty roster. For what am I digging? Three characteristics: first speed, second opportunity, third situation. The most common characteristic among NFL WR is they are fast, so I start with speedy players. Opportunity is everything in the NFL. If you don’t get the ball, you can’t score points in fantasy football, so I track targets. The situation often correlates to success. When looking for WR consider the quarterback and scheme. I have a list of players here that meet the criteria:

The NFL standings are starting to shape out, and some teams and fans may already be looking ahead at the 2022 draft class. One way to view what player your team might take is to check out the odds on a sportsbook. That is right; many sportsbooks already have odds for the 2022 NFL Draft. Sports betting is becoming more and more available and just launched in Arizona. You can look for NFL Draft odds on tons of sportsbooks like BetMGM Arizona.

One of the most fun parts of fantasy football dynasty leagues is the need to look further into the future to identify the value that can help your team compete, not only now but in a couple of years as well. As such, I’m already beginning to analyze what should be a strong 2022 NFL draft class. 2022 is shaping up to be another solid year for wide receivers with some intriguing quarterbacks, running backs, and tight ends on their way to the NFL, as well. Let’s take a look at some of the best players from the 2022 class to keep an eye on.

Good dynasty football managers will tell you that a working knowledge of NFL runningback depth charts is essential. Many NFL teams like to stash one high potential player either on their practice squad, or 3rd on the depth chart. This player typically has a chance to be 3 down explosive runner if they can overcome the issues that have put them in the position to be buried on the depth chart. Some have significant fumbling problems, others cannot pick up a blitz, and another common dilemma is lack of maturity. I like to fill my roster with these players. I do not have to invest much to acquire them and they could pay huge dividends. If they do not work out, just drop them and pick up the next one. Here are a few that I am looking to acquire (or already have).

Fantasy football is in full swing. Through four weeks, there is a ton to talk about regarding the rise and fall of the value of each and every player. One way to take a look at a player’s value for any given week could be to check out the players’ odds on a sportsbook. Sports betting is starting to become widely available in the United States. For example, Connecticut sports betting is launching soon and and FanDuel Connecticut should be live in early October. You can utilize these sportsbooks to either wager on your favorite players or see how vegas views their value for any given week.

One of my favorite aspects is the stock market nature of buying low and selling high on different players. This is especially true for dynasty where teams have different priorities as far as competing and rebuilding goes. At any given point in time, there are many players who can be acquired for cheaper than they should be and provide excellent upside to your team. Let’s take a look at some of my favorite buy-low targets for dynasty fantasy football leagues.

Playing dynasty fantasy football can be difficult. The Managers are typically better than your average league. You’re dealing with a much deeper pool of players. The waiver wire offers few life preservers. Dynasty Managers must learn to make timely trades and know when to seize the moment. The moment to seize a future star Quarterback is upon you. Go make an offer for Trevor Lawrence.

I love to build a dynasty team around a Quarterback. In dynasty, you are typically acquiring that player for the length of their career. A Quarterback will likely have a much longer football career than a Runningback or Wide Receiver, so it only makes sense to invest in a good QB. Why the urgency? Because Trevor Lawrence is about to turn his season around.

As Tom Brady has taught us, quarterback is a position where measurable physical traits matter the least. Arm strength is nice, but ask Jamarcus Russell how much it helped him. Rushing ability is a plus but in most cases needs to be secondary to the arm. The most important thing is decision making and quick processing, which is pretty difficult to quantify on paper.

Last week I was listening to a sports talk radio show that was making an argument against playing dynasty fantasy football. I know right?! Well the argument was that due to the high turnover rate of players, mostly running backs that it was too difficult to try to predict and control your team long-term. I personally think this is what makes dynasty so fun an challenging and because of the volatility we see so many different philosophies and strategies. Surprisingly I received an email the very same day from Nick Capozzi of the Razzball podcast, asking if we would like to do a write up about his new team he just drafted at MyFantasyLeague.com. If you’ve played dynasty you know all that play like to share their drafts due to the varying opinions of those that play, the same team that looks amazing to me could be regarded as unbalanced or too old by another dynasty enthusiast. So with this email I took a look at what was a very interesting draft by Nick and shot him a few questions where the “non writer” really made some great responses, land Sky was surprised by this as he says ‘Nick believes himself a bit of a celebrity and because keyboards are what he views as ‘the tool of we ignorant writing grunts who can’t croon the panties off the ladies’ Well Sky, Nick likes dynasty fantasy football so he’s ok in my book, let’s take a look at his draft and his answers to my questions.

In re-draft leagues, odds are that your league’s trade deadline has already passed, but in dynasty and keeper leagues, most trade deadlines are later in the year. I’m a big proponent of this, as it allows bottom-dwelling teams to sell of their top talent to playoff contenders in exchange for high-upside keepers or future draft […]
