DLF Writer’s Contest

Over the years, DLF has become the unquestioned leader in dynasty fantasy football news and analysis. As we’ve continued to evolve, we’ve been fortunate enough to find some of the best writers in the country through our connections on Twitter, our forum and the fantasy football business community. At this point, our articles are being read by thousands upon thousands of people on the day they’re released – that’s no small feat.

We’ve recently been receiving a ton of questions about how our writers got their starts with us and the answer truly vary. When fielding these questions, we realized one market we really haven’t tapped – you, the reader.

We know we have the single best community of followers in the fantasy football industry, full of intelligent, insightful and knowledgeable dynasty league veterans. Do any of you read through our articles and say, “Gee, I wish I could get my work out there for that many people to see!”

Well, now may be your chance!

We have a slot to fill for an official writer here at DLF and we’re going to choose from you!  We’ve chosen a few subjects and are challenging you to put together your best possible article on them (or choose one of your own).  Some suggested subjects are as follows:

1.) The First Three Picks in a Dynasty League…

That means you can write an article about who you believe the first three picks should be, you could analyze a draft and cover who the first three picks were, or simply write an article about something else in regards to the top three picks (why they’re so important, why you should trade from a slot there, whatever). You have complete creative license over the subject.

2.) Write a “boom or bust” article on several players who you think are undervalued and overvalued

3.) Write a “Dynasty Debate” article about any of the following pairs:

Dez Bryant vs. Miles Austin
Sam Bradford vs. Jake Locker
Ronnie Hillman vs. Isaiah Pead

The rules are as follows:

1.) All entries must be Emailed as a Word document to [email protected] by MIDNIGHT PDT on August 15th.

2.) Any article must be at least 1,000 words in length to be accepted

3.) Articles will be judged on the following criteria:

Originality
Grammar
Relevance

The author of the winning article (if one meets our high standards) will be interviewed by DLF for a position as an official part of the writing team. As an independent contractor, the winner will be paid for their future work and possibly be part of a future revenue sharing as part of the DLF Team. Perhaps most importantly, their articles will be posted on the DLF Home Page in the future, giving them exposure to thousands of readers every day. They will also be part of the network of DLF writers and the partners here who will do everything they can to maximize their writing potential.

The only article that will be posted will be the winning article, but we’ll do our very best to provide feedback to every author who takes the time to submit a piece. While there will only be one winner this time, other quality work will be noted for future opportunities within DLF.

Post any questions below and we wish you the best of luck!

– The DLF Team

Talk about an exciting opportunity!

I assure you that if you earn this role, you will end up with much more reach in the fantasy community than you can probably imagine. This is a unique chance to get started on something that most people have no access to. Also, I can attest to the fact that the partners take care of the staff.

To that end, if there is in fact a winner I promise to have you on the Podcast as soon as you join the team. (And I’ll try to prevent Jarrett from heckling you too much.)

Nice. I’ll throw my hat in the ring! Thanks for the opportunity, and this is a really cool idea. 🙂

Remember, If Brad Evans can do it, so can you!!

Seriously, this is a tremendous opportunity. If I weren’t so antagonistic, I would definitely enter.

Good luck to all.

Does the debate have to be about those three pairs or could I do something like Cruz vs Nicks?

Would like to do a debate on Romo vs Ryan. Would that be acceptable?

Nice idea. I’ll most certainly have to get involved. Love the concept.

I think it would be cool to also see the entries that didn’t quite make the cut. Not necessarily featuring them but making them available for us to sort through and enjoy. I personally won’t be entering the contest but would love to enjoy the work of my fellow fantasy football owners, win or lose. Best of luck to all of those involved!

We don’t want to take someone’s article from them if they aren’t getting anything back in return. If we post it, then it prevents them from using it other places. In order to be fair to those submitting, I don’t think we will be granting access to the non-winners. Sorry about that.

Would love to do this but extremely bad timing as I have lost a lovely girl in Wisconsin whose boyfriend decided to take her life as well as his own. My mind is just not there to write what I am capable of writing! Cheyenne Fiddler was and still is a warrior! Death is something nobody looks forward to but 23 is just waaaaaay tooo young for a beautiful girl with a great attitude!

Obviously you were close with Cheyenne Sixshooter and life always comes well before this fantasy we call football. From the little I can glean from the news story, it was a senseless tragedy. My (our) thoughts and prayers are with you.

Totally understandable. Believe me, this is way beyond the scope of fantasy football. Our condolences on your loss.
