    30 to 40 million fantasy football players?!?

    Sounds like a huge opportunity to convert them to to the Dynasty League format

    Keep up the great work.

    Dynasty is a hobby and a passion that I want to share. And it’s terrific that DLF has given me that outlet – first as an engaged member of the forums and now as a staff writer. As Jeff said above there are plenty of other fantasy outlets but I choose to write for DLF for one reason: community. The mere experience of participating in a discourse with other passionate players has made me a better player (and a better analyst). What draws me back to DLF every day is knowing that my on-line friends are posting their thoughts, questions, opinions. That’s much more important to me than a witty article on a mega-site that is 80% entertainment and 20% fantasy knowledge.

    Since joining as a staff writer, the partners have added more co-workers for me. And they are good – really good. When I sit down to write an article (be it the weekly mailbag or a strategy piece) I know the bar is high. It’s set that way by the other writers who do so by example. It’s not just my reputation that’s on the line; it’s the whole DLF crew. That is a trust I take seriously.

    This is the only fantasy football site I come to and it is by far the best.

    I go to a number of sites but look forward to the forum here. I’m going to bypass the obvious benefit of vast knowledge shared here. My biggest point is that the site is shared by mature adults who act like mature adults. I cannot overemphasize how much this plays into the time I am here. It’s a wonderful site.

    • I’m glad you mentioned that Kerry. I tend to go to other sites and forums to see about activity, posting, maturity, etc. etc. and I’ve often wondered why our forums and members are so different. I don’t know if that it is because dynasty is a more mature fan base or what … but there is most certainly a difference.

      Our goal is to have the best community on the planet and we think we’ve got a great start. Thanks for participating.

    For dynasty, I’m active and get all my info from DLF and Dynasty Rogues. I’m more than happy to throw my paid subscription money at both of you guys. I’m stoked that you guys fired up the premium content, I’ll keep renewing.

    For redraft as well as weekly “who do I start” cheatsheets, I love fantasy index. Little pricey, but those PDFs are great. My offer member league mates have been splitting a fantasy index subscription since 2005. I don’t go on their website for content, nor do I post in their message board, but the PDF sheets that they email give us enough value.

    $100 per year given to 3 sites is a super small investment that covers all my needs.

    Keep it up!

    • Thanks Jordan. We’ve priced our site such that it could appeal to a mass audience. With 35M people playing fantasy football and many of those dynasty …. we have our work cut out for us. You won’t find a more committed group to churning out impactful dynasty content. It’s what we do.

      Thanks for the support.

    I’m on this site every day, several times per day. The content is great, the forums are fantastic, and it is easily the best site online for dynasty content. Keep up the great work!

    • Scott says:

      14.99 is actually a small amount to pay, for so much high-quality, helpful content. I built my own website, and it costs a LOT to construct and maintain. I value the content on this site highly, and I’m happy to contribute my annual fee for it. I’d rather pay a small fee, and keep this site going, then not have it around. I hope others will do the same.

      • Awesome comment Scott and as someone like yourself that has build and maintained a site, you know what goes into it. It has certainly changed my views on supporting those that maintain/create sites that add value to my life … I happily subscribe now. Your last line speaks volumes.

        For us, we want to do more, be more and create more. This move should eventually allow that to happen. What’s better than something you love? Something you love getting even better!

        Thanks for the support

    I accidentally found this site like 2 months ago it has been the best find. Great articles with tons of information, insightful perspectives from each individual writer.

  8. Steve Moyer says:

    When we started playing dynasty in 1988 there was really nothing at all to refer to. A couple of years into the league, it was all about Fantasy Football Index and Pro Football Weekly, neither of which was keeper/dynasty oriented. As the internet took hold, there were various sites that had their toe in the water when it came to dynasty, but coverage was scant to say the least. FantasyGuru was pretty good and there were enough other sites to piece it all together, but when it comes to dynasty fantasy football, DLF is so dominant and fantastic, I wrestle with whether to tell my fellow OPFL owners about it or to keep it a very important secret.

    You guys are to be commended for this spectacular site, and for all your good work. I am a very discriminating customer who has followed this stuff way too closely for 25 years now, and this is easily the greatest dynasty website of all time. Nothing else even comes close. I am very happy to have stumbled across you, and I wish you the best of luck going forward.

  9. Bob says:

    You guys are great. I have been involved with a dynasty format for 15 yrs. no one else does it this good. As an athletic trainer and physical therapist, the only critique I would have is that I would like to see more injury analysis type of information.

  10. Keith Fortier says:

    I found this site 3 months ago and I’ve learned more about managing a successful dynasty roster since then than I have in the 4 years prior. You get so caught up in your own little world where redraft values and your leaguemates hugely biased opinions on player values are your only reference.

    The quality analysis here at DLF is unmatched, anywhere. I’m amazed at the frequency of content that’s released as well. It’s my morning newspaper! I dont know how they do it honestly. So when the opportunity came to donate to keep this site going i was thrilled. The fact we get premium access and an additional level of benefit from donating is just a bonus (and no small bonus i might add!).

    As for the forums. I’ve received invaluable advice on strategy, player values and managing my team. I find there seems to be a collective mindset that forms in any forum, and as easy as it is for ff’ers to succomb to those tendancies, for the most part you will get a great variety of unique opinionated responses to help you gain a better perspective. It’s easy for forum communities to get out of hand and filled with negativity, but either it’s moderated extremely well or the people attracted to DLF are of a higher ilk, it’s a pleasure to come in and share my thoughts and engage with the other members. Im guessing it’s both.

    Only 2 problems. 1. I wish i would have found you sooner (before i traded Cam last year would have been nice!) and 2. I’m kind of addicted. But, i guess there’s worse things to be addicted to!

    I could go on…but suffice to say i’m happy to call DLF my home for all things Dynasty. Looking forward to many years of enjoyment and success! Thank you for your committment to excellence and hard work. Thank you.

    • Keith, your comment makes my morning while I sit here doing more draft research. Couldn’t ask for a better comment that strikes at the heart of exactly what we’re trying to accomplish. And it all really does start with the community first. If you told me that we could only have one thing, best community or best content, I’d take community hands down. We really do want to assemble the best community on the planet with EVERY dynasty player calling us home.

      The only problem has been getting the word out to all of you that would prefer keep us a secret. :) I understand completely, we almost didn’t start the site 6 years ago because we didn’t want our own league-mates knowing how we think. Welcome and thanks.

  11. Keith Fortier says:

    One other thing. I feel terrible that I dont recommend you to my leaguemates. It’s not like a good restaurant, or new band you cant wait to share with everyone you know. Having you in my back pocket i feel gives me a significant advantage over my leaguemates that i’m not willing to relinquish! For this i apologize as you couldn’t possibly be more worthy. I do, however, RT you as much as possibly on Twitter and refer you to other dyno owners not in my league. Which reminds me, thank you for being so helpful on Twitter Eric! Lata!

    • We begrudgingly accept your stance. And it’s one that most seem to share. But we’re going to find your league-mates eventually Keith, we’ll find them….

      Good luck hiding them from us. :)

    I’ve been on here a couple of years now and my wife misses me. There is no forums anywhere that give the variety of insight that these forums give. I’m signing up for the premium upgrade tonight. As far as letting league mates know about it, I only tell the ones that have the commitment that I do, and usually send them a email titled “a present!”. After they look around I usually get a thank you email. Keep all the love you guys put into this site coming.
