Hey all;

I'm new to the dynasty format, but it's always intrigued me. I've played fantasy football off and on with varying types of leagues since 1996. I'll be in 3 this year, including the dynasty league. I took over an abandoned team and am just trying to learn the ropes. I'm committing to this team as long as I play FF and I know it's a long process to watch your drafted players mature, the middle round picks anyways....It's really fun watching rookie highlights, checking on their "stats" and I hope this will spawn my love of college football, because I don't care for it now lol. I joined this site because I wanted news with a forum. People usually have the best input and I love reading posts. I joined another site too but the website is skunky af and I won't be back there next year...I won't mention the name...

Side note - I went to the NDSU / Iowa game in Iowa last fall part of a fan convoy and seen George Kittle live. I thought in that game that he was NFL worthy. Who the hell knows how he'll fit in SF, but he had a nice sideline streaking play in that game that stood out. He was a man among boys in that game.

Great to be aboard.

Hi, I'm Jakub. Can't believe I just saw this. Been here for a few years. Always read, rarely comment. Been playing fantasy football since 2005. My first foray into fantasy ever was team 1 below with local friends from the comic book store I worked at in high school. Still have yet to win a title with her but she's my baby. I'm a much better redrafter than dynasty player and a horrible trader in all fantasy.

About me? 31. Chicagoan born and raised and a fan of all my home teams. An introverted extrovert... or vice versa. Floated my way through life, through various jobs and fields before ending up as an attorney. Good at most everything except love (and dynasty apparently). Lover of insobriety. Avid gamer of all sorts (card, board, video, sport) and lover of sci fi/fantasy anything. Favorite sport is the real futbol, though football is a close second followed by hockey. Love dogs that aren't puntable. Addicted to lime popsicles. You wouldn't guess my middle name if you tried 1000 times.

Hey guys, back after a little hiatus due to some health issues but ready to rock. Been on this site for 5-6 years as a member albeit not a very active one. I would like to change this in 2017. I have been playing FF for 25 years or so and have done fairly well at it in the past. It is a release for me from all the ongoing daily grind.

As my screen name says, I am a die hard Giants fan and live in the wonderful state of NJ, SMH...I enjoy reading some of the long timers on here posts. Very informative stuff and I hope to be a more active participant

Just joined DLF today. Glad I found it. I was looking for a place to share thoughts and issues with other Dynasty commissioner's and players, as well as meet some folks who might want to be on my Dynasty League wait list.

I was born and raised a Seahawks fan, living in Oregon. I've played fantasy sports for 22 years and I love it. Currently, I'm in 4 active NFL leagues, one is a Dynasty going into it's 16th season! One league is a Dynasty league that I commish, going into it's 5th season. While I don't love being a commish, I wanted to create a league that was not only extremely competitive but also similar to the NFL. I loved getting my scoring and settings just right and I believe all the owners really do enjoy the structure. I just want the most competitive and active league that one can have.

Again, glad to be here and excited to meet some fellow Dynasty junkies!

Hi guys, Im a newbie - just joined DLF today :)

I'm form Switzerland and discovered american football and fantasy just 2 years ago. We have a lot of sports in Europe but believe me, nothing like this... Addicted from the first day on - and I'm still today. I just started my first dynasty this year, with some friends. Even though im quite unexperienced, I'd love to discuss any fantasy matters with you guys - and if you have some question about me, switzerland, europe or something else (I love politics by the way) send me a massage ;)

Have a good day guys!
Cheers Mat

(aaand sorry for my english, Im working on it) ;)

Well, well, two foreign noobs in a row! I'm from Spain and have pretty much the same experience as gunzwil above. Two years ago I put together some disparate friends and coworkers I found to be interested in football, just out of curiosity and to please one of them whose father is from Pittsburgh. I knew nothing at all about football or fantasy leagues, but we formed what this year has turned into my first dynasty. I don't even have a favorite team, but I do get probably too attached to certain players... anyway I'm totally hooked on this stuff and very eager to learn from all of you guys, and I hope to contribute what little I can.

Hey everyone,

This used to be my thing. If you ever used to be on the FF Cafe, I was on that all the time and eventually became a writer and a mod for them. But then the owner sold the site and the place went defunct years ago.
I rarely got on forums since about 2010 (life, family, etc.) but I joined a dynasty league six years ago and every now and then would come here to learn how to play.

I finally won the league last year and still have a competitive team. So i came here on Sunday, asked a couple questions, and Coogan Football PM'ed me with a canned message asking me to stick around. Well, I guess that was enough for me because here I am.

Anyway, I love the NFL and like many of you Sundays are made for football. Having grown up in Philly I love the Eagles, and taught my kids to say Dallas stinks by the time they were 3.
We moved to Alabama this year and while I never watched college football as a kid, I am learning very quickly to shout Roll Tide whenever I hear it I in the Wal-Mart. Gotta make friends somehow.

Well, thanks for having me. If I'm still regularly posting around here by mid-season maybe I could perform some odd jobs or something

Saints fan living in Texas. I've been playing FF since 2006, really did not pay much attention to my leagues until 2010 ( yeah I was a "Taco" for a while). I've been in a 3 keeper league for a while but this is my first season in a dynasty league so I am still figuring things out in that regard.
