Dynasty Help!


Recommended Posts

Tonight is the 5th year draft for my dynasty league with my friends. I came in 3rd place in 2013. I won the league in 2014 and 2015, and I didn't have time for it last year so I ended up just tanking last season unintentionally and I now have the first overall pick. I'm not sure which way to go with it.

*The league is only 8 teams, but the rosters are large. 

My Keepers:

QB: Ben Roethlisberger
QB: Blake Bortles
RB: David Johnson
RB: Jordan Howard
RB: Todd Gurley 
RB: Mark Ingram
RB: Thomas Rawls
WR: Odell Beckham JR
WR: Alshon Jeffrey
WR: Michael Thomas
WR: T.Y. Hilton
WR: DeVante Parker
TE: Tyler Eifert 
TE: Hunter Henry
TE: Austin Hooper

Other Players not currently kept:  
QB: Brock Osweiler
QB: Teddy Bridgewater
RB: DeAndre Washington
RB: Kenneth Dixon
RB: Devontae Booker
WR: Josh Doctson
WR: Malcolm Mitchell
WR: Laquon Treadwell
WR: Phillip Dorsett
WR: Quincy Enunwa
K: Stephen Gostknowski
Cincinnati D/ST


Positions: 2 QB, 3 RB, 3 WR, 2TE, 2 RB/WR/TE, K, DEF (12 Bench spots, 3 IR)


My questions for you:

1. Who should I take #1 overall?

 I felt like I for sure wanted to take Fournette as of last spring, but I've developed a crush/bias toward Joe Mixon. I like Cook and McCaffrey as well, but I'm leanning toward Mixon or Fournette. I need everyone here on FF to talk some sense into me and help point me in the right direction. I am only concerned with long term outlook. I have a little concern over Fournette's health moving forward, but I'm also thinking way too hard about it. 

2. Do you feel that I should switch out any of my keepers? I don't feel great about keeping Bortles, but I don't have a second QB worth keeping, and it's a 2 QB league. Going into the draft without at least a second guy at that position seems like a bad idea, as some teams, like my one buddy who tends to be my rival in fantasy is keeping 4 (Brady, Carr, Mariota, Prescott).


So what do you guys think? Any feedback would be much appreciated. We draft tonight. 


**Wasn't exactly sure where this would fit in best in the forum, so I made a thread hoping to get a good amount of feedback in the next hour or so.

With it being non-PPR, your surest contributors this season are Cook or Hunt. Long term, Fournette or Mixon. I wouldn't think about mccaffrey at that spot.

That's pretty much how I feel right now. I just can't decide if Fournette or Mixon is the better direction long term. If you were in my shoes which way would you go with it?

That league is too much. Way too many keepers. No wonder you won it twice already. That league looks really easy.

That is what most refer to a true dynasty is that you keep/retain the vast majority of your roster from year to year.  8-10 player keepers for most dynasty football players is not a real dynasty league.  It is much more likely that a team sustains itself at the top when they can keep all its top tier players for an unlimited length of time.

I guess. I think it's overkill. It doesn't even seem fun to me if it's like that. Too easy if you keep everyone 

I agree.  I like the contract and salary cap format for leagues.  Adds the dimension of managing the $$ and contracts.   Having a penalty of dead cap when you cut a player.  Owners need to consider more aspects when acquiring players.

Draft is rookie only, 3-4 rounds.   Veterans that are not under contract are in an auction for acquisition.  Each team has whatever unused salary cap space they have.  Allows teams to strategically plan for having a lot of cap space at a time when some top tier players will be FA
