I had an odd mix of ups and downs this year, from playing in my first dynasty IDP league, to getting together with some local (and some not-so-local) DLF writers for a live draft to watching multiple teams that I thought had a good shot implode one by one. But though the balance sheet at the end of 2016 shows a net negative for most of my teams, I may have learned more about the game this year than any year prior. A lot of that has to do with my role right here at DLF. I get great opportunities to join interesting leagues, I get the chance to talk candidly with folks who REALLY know there stuff and I get the inside track to stuff like official mock drafts with knowledgeable owners. It’s that last piece I want to talk about here. Leading up to and during this season, I participated in three official DLF mock drafts led by Ryan McDowell. Since these drafts take place on My Fantasy League, I actually have a good running record of who I picked, what round I picked them in and how each of those picks turned out. I learned a lot, and perhaps seeing what I did can help you in your dynasty draft thinking as well.
