I got into dynasty football about 6 years ago with the start of a 16 team league after many years of redraft only. A few of the people in the league kept mentioning the forums so I decided to check them out a couple years ago.

I got married last year and bought a house in MA. I recently purchased the company I've worked for the past 6 years. It's a14,000 sq/ft sports performance facility in Mass that sees athletes from 2 year old classes to high end college and professional athletes. We have running treadmills that go 28 mph/40 elevation and a hockey treadmill.

I'm 43 years old. Grew up in the Bay Area. Went to UC San Diego in the mid 90s. Lived there until I moved to Hawaii in 2003. Been living on Oahu ever since.

Been playing fantasy football since 2005, dynasty since 2009. I'm in too many leagues, LOL.

I've been a longtime bodyboarder. But I also surf & stand up paddle surf a lot. Love snowboarding too.

But since 2008, photography has taken over as my primary hobby. Especially shooting wave photos in the water. You can see my photos on instagram at @jordanstallard, and also @duckiegoes. The story behind @duckiegoes.....one day I was in the mood for being creative while shooting wave photos. I was brainstorming to figure out what kind of toy I could make surf. I saw my daughter's rubber duckie in the bathtub, so I stole it and took it for a surf. Everyone seemed to like the photos, so I spontaneously give him his own instagram page and brought him to life. Good times!

This is a great thread... I coincidentally asked the same question of my dynasty league mates. The idea was to collect all the responses, compile in a newsletter that I will send to all at the beginning of the 2016 seasons....

Anyways, in short. I'm Australian. Raised here and had my first exposure to NFL in 1991 (still have the video cassettes of TV recording of the games). I have a science degree and a qualification in international trade. Currently working for the government.

First played fantasy in 2011-12. Was immediately intrigued. 2015 was my first dynasty league and I have to say that it has completely altered the way I look at the NFL.... In the past I would play NFL fantasy, once that was over I'd switch to Australian rules football fantasy.. Since starting dynasty its NFL 24-7, 365. Have lots to learn and thoroughly enjoying this forum..

Lastly.. Loved reading all your responses.. Cheers

Canadian married to American living in Nashville...at present anyway. IT Infrastructure/OracleDBA guy so I am plugged in pretty much constantly. Play hockey or golf most days of the week and am a fan of playing most sports. I watch NFL/NHL religiously...or more maybe because I never miss a week. Been playing fantasy football since the pen and paper days back in '90's but what was a small outlet for my gambling/vice has turned into a major time sink with how easy the internet has made it all. I often play in 15+ leagues per season of almost all available formats but have eliminated all but one keeper league and down to 2 redrafts

...and that's all I got to say about that.

I'll toss my story in here.....

I'm in Houston but I have Baltimore roots and back in the 70s/80s I'd take a vacation to watch the Orioles. In August of 1980 on my trip my uncle handed me a crappy newsstand football mag and asked me to make a list of players for what he explained was a 'fantasy football' draft. I did it and had such a good time with it I got my friends involved in organizing the Ed Hughes League, named for the former Oilers head coach. We had nine teams, high score each week was the 'winner, no playoffs. The next year we made it a head to head ten teamer and we've been going strong ever since. We took a loooooong time to graduate from TD-only to performance scoring. I recall very well the Monday nights when I'd score the league by hand once the MNF game was over, type up the results and a newsletter, make copies at a 7-11 and mail them out on the way to work Tuesday morning. Such fun.

We've got a great group of owners, most are my college buddies and have been in the league since Day One. My sons now each have a franchise (I turned my team over to one of them and am only the commish now). The link to my league is at the bottom of my sig. I'm going to reprint my favorite Hughes League moment as I originally posted it on my blog:

We used to all be together and draft at someone's home or apartment or occasionally at a restaurant that would give us a room to use. One of our favorite things was drafting on Labor Day with the Jerry Lewis Telethon as a distraction and sending out for pizza or grilling burgers.

Those of you that can't remember life before the internet will have to trust me when I say that back in the Dark Ages not everyone had the latest football info or up-to-the-minute cheat sheets and depth charts. Most guys bought a copy of Street and Smith Football or a similar magazine printed months earlier and drafted from the dated info it contained. Drafting a guy who'd been cut the week before wasn't unusual, especially if you didn't track the transactions in the paper every day.

If you made the effort to find a Pro Football Weekly season preview issue you were way ahead of most everyone else. Those things usually hit the shelves a day or so before the draft. I can remember checking for it at some pretty sketchy downtown Houston "newsstands" the night before the draft.

Given all that I guess it shouldn't have been a surprise when, during the first round of our 1984 draft, one of our owners took Dolphin runningback David Overstreet. He's been a star at the University of Oklahoma, played a couple of seasons with Montreal of the CFL (including a Rookie of the Year 1981 campaign) and, after finally settling his contract issues with Miami, showed promise with the '83 Dolphins.

Then as now runningbacks were a valued fantasy commodity and drafting a young star in a keeper league like ours could pay dividends for years. So, all in all, Oversteet made sense as a first round pick. Except for one small detail. David Overstreet, you see, had died about three months prior to our draft when he ran off the road on a north Texas highway and plowed his car into a gas pump island.

The instant the Overstreet pick was announced by the sadly out-of-touch owner eleven sets of eyes locked on him. I guess we wanted to see if he was making a poor attempt at fantasy football draft humor. After a few seconds it was apparent that he had made a serious pick of Overstreet and hilarity ensued.

I'm not proud of it, Overstreet's death was the cutting short of a promising life and he left behind a young son, but I have to admit that the 1984 Ed Hughes League draft will forever live on among our league's treasured moments.


And now my current story:

This year I decided that not having a team in my own league wasn't much fun so I found a spot in this Dynasty league and entered the world of 'giving a damn about' rookies. It's been a lot of fun preparing for my first rookie draft and the challenge of re-building the team I took over is going to be interesting. I'm glad I found this site and the forum!

I'll add that I am interested in all kinds of sports memorabilia and I blog about cards, paper memorabilia and the like at http://5toolcollector.blogspot.com/ Check it out if you are interested.

Been playing fantasy football for about 20 years. I was the commish of my first league and, as someone mentioned earlier, used to compile the stats and tally up the scores using the box scores from the Monday newspaper. Played in some keeper leagues in the past, but this was my first year of dynasty and I love it, primarily for the year-round aspect of it. It's quite possible that I watch less NFL football than anyone on these boards. I wait tables for a living, and I usually work Mon & Thurs nights and all day Sunday, so I mainly follow my fantasy teams, and the NFL in general, through highlights and box scores. But as long as I have my Saturdays free for college football, I'm happy.

Beyond that, here's what it says on my Tinder profile:

Joined six years ago when I was a high school sophomore. Grew up in Seattle, about to graduate from the University of Chicago with a degree in Economics and work in finance in Portland.

I've moved onto other things mostly and don't post much around these parts. The effort required to slightly increase your odds in this game of random chance just isn't worth it to me right now. I'm a platinum-ranked league of legends player and own a collection of over 50 whiskeys (and yes I'm 22).

Born and raised in MN too, and there is one thing I have accepted. That the Bills (who I root for) and the Queens will never win a SB. Both will come close again someday, but certain teams, cough Cleveland, just don't bring titles to their cities. Look at the bright side, they could be like the Wild. The hockey state, but has never won a Cup. Go Twinkies I guess.

First post, Might as well make the "my story" post.

I'm RJ, a 9th generation Virginian on the cusp of 40 (19 days away!!). The first of my clan came over as an indentured servant and earned his freedom by fighting for the US in Revolutionary War. I've been a 9-1-1 dispatcher for 14 years. My main source of entertainment is riding motorcycles

I started Fantasy Football in 1992. Our commissioner was the sports editor at the local paper so he had the wire info and would hand calculate all the scores!! I'm still playing with that guy, and have yet to win a playoff game in his league. (I'm starting to think this is rigged... haha) I've run and played in a number of different leagues through the years. Won a handful of championships, lost more than I care to count.

I'm down to 2 leagues these days. An old school league with friends. We still have a live draft with the big paper board and player stickers. That's my fun league because we trash talk the crap out of each other. Brutal stuff but friends can do that.

2015 was my first dynasty league (technically 2nd but the 1 I tried joining years ago either folded or kicked me out with out telling me because it just disappeared one day) I'm got a few questions I'm looking for answers to and looking for incite on things I haven't thought of yet.

This looks like a well run board. I'm excited to be a part of it. Thanks, RJ

Let me start by saying I was weened on the National Football League thanks to my older brother Mark. Once introduced, I knew this was the greatest game of all time.

My first introduction to fantasy football was due to my friend Dave, who asked me back in 1989 if I'd heard of FF. His league had an opening and it sounded fun. It was a live draft with all owners present and plenty of festivity enhancing properties on-hand. The draft was a blast with some serious trash talking that would make Trump blush. I was hooked.

Back then everything was live. You had to call in your lineup to the Commissioner by 1pm Sunday and leave it on his answering machine. Owners exchanged phone numbers and also called each other with their lineups. Also to talk smack as the games went on. More than once I called someone from the pub to give them grief. The guys also got together on occasion to watch the games.

Today it's all online, but I do have some friends involved in some of the online leagues I'm in.

My all time high in leagues was 10, but I've scaled that back to 6. Initially all leagues were redraft, but I got into Dynasty's about 7 years ago and now 4 of my leagues are Dynasty's. I also Commish two leagues and enjoy themed leagues. I run Justice League of America FF as well as JAWS LEAGUE. The only requirement is that your team be reflective of the overall theme. I have to confess it is pretty cool knowing I am Batman. LOL.

To say I immerse myself in football is an understatement. I'm on it all the time. Love the game and love fantasy football. Been fortunate enough to win numerous titles, and am usually in the postseason in most my leagues. Admittedly there is the occasional brain fart.

Greatest fantasy joy was my first Championship the year I drafted Emmitt Smith no.2 overall. The no.1 pick? Randall Cunningham, who went down to injury in game 1. The dude who drafted him jumped up and started talking smack immediately, proclaiming himself that years champion. When Cunningham went down he got destroyed. lol. Oh...and I won the Championship that year. Thanks Emmitt!!

Worst fantasy moment came in a trade. I'm a disabled veteran on pain pills. Last year I was in a car crash and smacked my head, giving myself a concussion along with a hurt back. The pain pills came in handy but I had to do a double dose due to the pain. Bad thing about pain pills and concussions is it makes you completely irrational in some respects. I was working a trade with another owner and clicked submit offer as I was still deciding who to offer. I putzed around online knowing full well I needed to revoke the offer, but forgot as soon as I'd think it. After about an hour I was reminded of it and thought "Crap...what have I done" and immediately went to the site to revoke. But it had just been accepted. Fortunately I made the championship game anyway, but my team is no longer 'stacked' like it was. My fault. I own it. But there's no way on God's green earth I would ever do something so completely stupid. Kills me to this day.

Discovered DLF a few years ago and love it. Used to be a regular at AntSports when they had the forum, but left due to lackadaisical ownership. The members here are incredibly helpful and I typically take the majority advice. Can't imagine not having DLF to turn to. Just a great site with excellent moderators. Thumbs up to you guys.

Long time DLF reader but just joined the forum! I'm in Northern Cali in the medical field, been here for about 5 years now since moving from SoCal.

After many years of redraft and auction leagues, I made a dynasty league with some close friends who were all in the same area for school at that time. This was about 7 years ago and boy, did we not know what we were doing then. Still play a few big money redraft leagues, but our real passion is our dynasty league now. It's really true, there is no off season! We increase our buy-in every 3 years by a set increment, and now it's at $600 per person, winner take all. So yea, I'm thinking about dynasty all year long!

I really like the league discussions on the forum and seeing how other leagues are constructed and run. You guys in the forum are awesome and hopefully I can be a productive member!

My first fantasy football team was a co-owned venture in a league that my dad was in with a friend of mine whose dad was also in the league. I don't remember what year it was exactly but I think that it was 2000 because Drew Bledsoe was our QB and he was with the Patriots. It was a live draft but the league was managed online. I was about 12 years old and it was the first time I ever heard my dad curse when someone drafted a player right before him.

We only did the league the one year (pretty sure we were a fill in when someone dropped out late) but a few years later in 2003 I did another team in a random Yahoo league. After that I bounced from league to league for a while, usually one year things with classmates in highschool and then college. In 2009 my roommate started a league called (relevant at the time) Ochenta y Cinco, which is the league I've now been in for the longest. In 2011 I got an invite to a league that another guy I knew from college was running that had been around for 5 years at that time, and I'm still in that league as well. In 2014 I started a "for fun" league that's mostly a few friends and their wives/girlfriends, usually with different rulesets than usual (TE premium one year, 2 QB one year.)

This year a few friends from high school that I've kept in touch with decided to put together a dynasty league. We've got the 12 owners already and will be having the draft in early August. I got the #2 pick. It's all of our first dynasty league except for one guy, so I've got no idea how the draft is going to go. Looking forward to reading the threads on here and looking for any info I can use to get ahead!
