What Links/Sources Do You Guys Recommend to Provide to Owners New to Dynasty?

Postby ascherb » Tue May 22, 2018 9:12 am

I'm starting a league with a bunch of first-timers when it comes to the dynasty thing, and I'm wondering if you guys know of some good articles/sources/links I could provide to the newbies so they can get an idea about how dynasty works and how to value players in dynasty vs. redraft.

for when they want to trade picks:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=138641

although i dont use them now, i do find trade calculators useful in gauging how close an offer may be. would be a good staring point to initiate discussions.

most of the good sites went behind a paywall, but you can still get good info and takes from their podcast. dynasty happy hour just had one where they talked about the difference between a redraft and dynasty... so that may be a good listen for them.

Just direct them to this forum. You will get good/better advice here than looking elsewhere. Just my personal opinion, but I don't think that it is anyone's responsibility (including the commissioner) to hand-hold for anyone else. If they are not tech savvy enough to go to Google and search for it then they are in trouble in any format.
If you can't leave at least a 20% tip, you can't afford to eat out.

Agree with this completely. I am the commish, and I haven't told anyone where I get my info. I don't think any of my guys are here, and I'm not going to point them to it. They are all grown ups and have access to the internet. While I am the commish, I am also trying to beat all of them.

Almost everything I have learned about dynasty has come through personal experience, this forum, the host site DLF and a couple of veteran owners throughout my leagues. I would definitely recommend just sending them here and start reading threads.

1) This forum.
2) I give them my draft pick chart (in my sig).

I also tell them that any trade made can positively or negatively affect your team for multiple years, so don't just trade willy-nilly.

listen to a podcast, doens't have to be dynasty only, but all year long... I think if people are interest to stay up to date on a weekly, daily basis they will learn fast. My league listen to the fantasy footballers, they have their issues but I like them a lot.

Here’s my welcome email to owners I know are new to dynasty format.
I just wanted to send the main dynasty resource that could be of great help to you.

dynastyleaguefootball.com

First, the premium subscription is well worth the cost especially for rankings (and rookie rankings) as you start acclimating to the dynasty concept.

As well, check out the forums - specifically the…

1. dynasty discussion forum (viewforum.php?f=5) and…

2. dynasty team advice forum (viewforum.php?f=6).

Before making any trades I would strongly suggest you post the deal to the team advice forum to get feedback, it’s an invaluable tool that can help you avoid costly mistakes in the beginning.

Anyway, welcome to the league.
