We are all the same in the fantasy community when we play Dynasty formats. We hope beyond hope that those first round rookie picks we make will all be the future stars of our teams and lead us to glory. However, in reality as much as we dream of our new starlet to hit the ground running week one of their NFL careers, it can often take them a little longer to get established. Nowhere is this truer than at the wide receiver position. Running backs have it easy, they have a far more limited play book to learn and …

Kickers Matter Dynasty League : State of the Franchise Bottom Half (9-16) So here we are in the depths of the offseason with many months still to go before we see any meaningful action.

So in light of that what better time than to take stock following the Rookie draft of the current ...

Arizona Cardinals – Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma New Cardinals Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury last year said if he had the number 1 pick in the NFL Draft he would select Murray.

“With the first pick in the 2016 draft, Getting Gronky selects…..Thomas Rawls!”   That’s right after months of build up with me scouring all the resources I could online and with me ranking and re-ranking the whole summer, with the first pick in my first draft of the year in 2016 I ended up with Thomas Rawls.   Such a huge grade on an undrafted running back who in the season previous had run for 830 Yards and ran in 4 TD’s during a surprisingly effective rookie season. But a #1 pick grade on him? Well no….but he was the ...
