What are Dynasty Fantasy Football Leagues?
In a dynasty league, you’ll manage your team year after year, making it a perfect choice for those who crave long-term strategy and commitment. Unlike traditional redraft leagues, where rosters are wiped clean at the end of each season, dynasty leagues allow you to retain most, if not all, of your players. This format challenges you to build a roster capable of sustaining success over the long haul.

Dynasty Startup Draft Strategy
Don’t lie to yourself. You’re not playing fantasy football for any different reason than anyone else. Whether for money or glory, the intention behind drafting a team is winning. Dynasty leagues operate on the same exact premise but with more permanence and ripple consequences than redraft. Like the Cowboys in the 1990s or the Patriots in the 2000s, a dynasty is a sustained pattern of winning championships.
It’s a proven fact that a team cannot win multiple championships before winning the first one, so why doesn’t every dynasty fantasy football manager employ the “Win-Now” strategy in the startup draft? The simple answer is that there is a simultaneous obsession with hitting on successful rookie picks and a stigma around players who are “too old” to build around for the future. Drafting breakout rookies is the gold standard in boasting about one’s ability in dynasty. It simply makes you look really smart. At the same time, getting “stuck” with quickly depreciating veteran assets makes you look really dumb.
