Welcome

This is my personal site used for centralizing thoughts, articles, podcasts, rankings, tips, leagues that I am in, and much more.


A little about me…

I live & breathe dynasty and love having open discussions on any aspect of football.

An active owner in many dynasty leagues in very mixed formats. IDP, Superflex, 12-14 teams, Salary Cap, Devy, you name it.

I created my Twitter account years ago just as a way to get the latest news and info on the NFL for my leagues. Absorbed a ton of great info and began interacting with some of the fantasy football community. I would ask many questions, and many writers/analysts wouldn’t reply. I am grateful to the ones that replied and for whatever I can contribute to the community, I feel like replying is the least of it.

From reader to contributor…

I am not a writer. I am an engineer who writes about his hobby. A bunch of years ago, I was approached by Brian Reidmiller (@fantasycouncil). Brian asked me to contribute to his site, www.fantasycouncil.com. Mostly strategic approach, but some player specific.

After that, I did a few weekly articles for blindsidefootball.com.

As I transitioned more and more to dynasty and less on redraft/seasonal leagues, Chad Scott (@Chad_Scott13) offered me an opportunity to join TheFakeFootball.com to contribute to their dynasty content. This was really a great opportunity for me. I worked on dynasty rankings, strategy articles, and created a dynasty buy series.

In February 2016, I joined DynastyLeagueFootball.com contributing to their premium content. So far have done a blend of rookie profiles and strategy articles.

  1. Hi Kevin. I recently came across your work a few months ago…I’ve been playing dynasty since 2014 and appreciate your approach to roster building.

    I greatly appreciate that you post links to your active leagues…it’s a level of transparency and accountability I haven’t seen in any other analyst, for which I am greatly appreciative. I looked at your site today and didn’t see any scout dynasty leagues — I remember that you had 2 when I checked about a month ago. Did you leave those leagues? If so, I’d be interested to hear why as I am contemplating joining a DFWC startup draft this year.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated. BTW, keep up the great work with the podcast. I hope you and your family are well. Take care.

    1. Thanks for the feedback. When I was just a dynasty player, I would often wonder why more people who contribute share their leagues and rosters. Some are in great shape, some are in bad shape, some are take overs, etc. Full transparency helps advance our conversations about the work in progress that is dynasty fantasy football.

      I was in two DFWC Scout leagues last year. I decided to leave them over the winter. One was a top 5 franchise; finished 5th in 2015 overall in the dynasty championship tournament. In November, I nearly walked away from Fantasy Football and Twitter completely. I left about 12 dynasty leagues and told DLF I might be back, but wasn’t sure.
      I liked my teams I had on Scout, I wasn’t a big fan of the platform, site is very different from what I have become so used to with myfantasyleague.com, and some of the rules are quirky, however, the reason I left was because I wanted to make a decision early enough they could replace me, not knowing if I was going to quit fantasy altogether.

      Please feel free to hit me up on Twitter and we can discuss any questions you might have.
      Regards,
      Kevin
