I’ve been offering in-season lineup advice on DLF for many years now. It’s one of our most popular recurring pieces and it allows DLF to interface with our members directly, something we are very much known for. In fact, more than anything else in my opinion, that approach is what sets DLF apart from our competition – Individualized and personalized interaction with our community!
As interest and popularity of the in-season advice offering grew, I witnessed an ever-increasing volume of other questions related to trading, roster building, keepers, free agency, rookies and other generalized strategy questions. If not for the increasing volume of lineup questions, I would have liked to have been able to spend even more time with our members answering these queries. It got me thinking that the popularity and impact of a season-long advice series would be great enough to suggest it now be on the seasonal menu.
Dynasty players surely know, as DLF’s tag line also reinforces: There is NO off-season! In any given month, dynasty players are evaluating rookies, preparing for declaration day, preparing for the NFL Combine and NFL Draft, performing rookie drafts, following training camp(s), engaging in new league start-up drafts, or any number of other activities which help the engaged dynasty coach to prepare for kick-off in Sept. each year. Commitment + Preparation = Long Term Success. This equation is only slightly less known than any one of Professor Einstein’s popular offerings and certainly easier to understand.
Many other sites offer advice as well, but charge for each individual question or larger service such as draft preparation. At DLF, our goal has always been to have a single price which yields everything we have to offer. We always seek to increase our value proposition to you. So, that said, here is the maiden voyage of our “off”-season advice offering. I may quickly find out why others charge for the service or, having answered hundreds of lineup advice questions weekly during the season already, it’s quite possible the volume will be manageable. Truth be told, I don’t know what to expect. What I do know is our community is filled with engaged, committed and passionate dynasty players and sometimes you have questions or need a second opinion.
The service is reserved for our Premium Members. It is you who have helped build DLF with the hope of realizing greater success in your individual leagues. Many refuse to pay for anything on the web, especially when it comes to fantasy football information. We respect that position, too, but without our Premium Members, DLF doesn’t exist. It really is that simple. Hopefully this series will be yet another arrow in your quiver as you build your dynasty teams.
To begin, I’m not putting many restrictions on the advice. Ask what you will. Include anything you think will help me in understand your situation. Please do not post links to your leagues, etc. Instead, add information about your scoring format, roster set-up, rules, etc. which I can use to help you with any decisions to be made. We’ll start there and amend as needed.
The NFL Combine is in the books and Pro Days are underway. Dynasty coaches are actively shopping or acquiring draft selections, making trades and positioning their teams for success heading into the draft. It’s an exciting time of year and there’s no shortage of questions. Whether you need advice relating to incoming class, a specific rookie, preparing for your draft or anything else, DLF is here for you.
Let’s get this party started! Just leave a comment below to ask your question.
