Dynasty league?

Post by Ohjay » Thu May 15, 2014 4:52 pm

It's perhaps a wee bit early to talk fantasy football but I'd like to throw a hook out there and see if I catch anything :D

Last year a friend of mine tried to set up a Dynasty League on RSO, unfortunately we didn't get enough participants to launch that league last season.
Aaaanyway, I was wondering if any of you guys are in a Dynasty League that might get an open spot this season, or if you know of a newly started league that needs another member.

Let me know if you got anything for me, or hear of anything.

I'd like to get into a dynasty league as well. I've been trying for a couple years and haven't found one. It's tough to get into. For a new league you need a good group of people who will stick around for years, which can be difficult to put together. The other option is to join an established league, meaning you'll most likely be taking over a terrible team and already be at a big disadvantage. It's tough to sign up for a situation like that and put your money on the line.

Well that's five of us, that's a start.
Now if we could get some more participants we might actually be able to start one.

Does anyone know a good platform for a dynasty league?
I like RSO that I mentioned, but you have to pay a fee to use it, so it might not be everybody's cup of tea...

A bit of a necro (since this thread is kinda old) but anyway.
I would love to join in a dynasty league :)

I think I'd be interested. Never done dynasty before, though.

I wonder what an optimal number of participants would be?
7 interested so far.. I think the minimum will be at least 10.

Any suggestions for platform?

If we decide to do it, I'd suggest using ESPN - I'm personally not a fan of Yahoo. That said, if the majority prefers Yahoo, I'd still be game.

I've done some super-quick research on Dynasty platforms and this is a quick rundown(of the best):

ESPN - Free, somewhat simpler league/rules format
MyFantasyLeague - Paid yearly(by commish), a lot of features and customisation options, been around a long, long time.
RealitySportsOnline - Paid yearly(by team owners), a ton of features and customisation options, quite new, supposedly great support.


To be honest I would like to see a league with Auction Draft, Contracts... a bit more realistic if you will.
But of course the majority will decide. I'll do some more research and the put up a poll and we can decide on a platform together.
(I won't mind eating the cost of a MFL league if needed)

From a fantasy guy I follow on Twitter...was asked tips for dynasty leagues. His thoughts:
no trade vetoes, no week 17 SB. No giant rosters to keep WW active. No Kickers/Defense.
He likes start 3 WRs + 2 Flex.

Kinda like the week 17 SB tough :)

Anyway, just wanted to say that this looks promising. Keep up the research :)

Dynasty league?

Week 17 SBs should be a federal crime. Nothing is worse than having the best team in the league and worrying about if some of your top contributors will be around for the Super Bowl because they did so well in real games.

Haven't really found any other suitable platforms for a dynasty league so I added a poll with the three I mentioned earlier.
I really don't like Yahoo, but I suppose that's an option too(I'll add it).

As for rules, we can hash that out once we figure out the platform.

I'll give the poll a few more days. So far only 5 people have voted, me included.

I know very little about dynasty leagues but from a quick search MFL seemed to be a consensus favorite.

I keep on forgetting to vote when I'm at home and I can't see the poll on mobile. I really don't care though.

Yeah they seem to be the most popular in terms of Dynasty Leagues, there is a cost to use it, but as I said, I don't mind paying that.

My biggest concern is that we won't be able to get enough participants. :(

There doesn't seem to be much traction to this so I'll leave it for this season. :(
Perhaps next one

I'm a bit late to this topic but if it does open up again I'd be interested.

I'm really good with anything. I am playing Yahoo and NFL in other leagues.
I'm in still whenever it is to get cranked up.
