Talking Dynasty Fantasy Football


$1250 FFPC Dynasty - Results

Well, it took a while to recover to write this, so as you might have guessed, I chose wrong. I started Romo in Week 16 and, as it turns out, it was in fact the difference between the $7,000 and the $2,750. Interestingly, or sadly, minutes before the start of the game, I was about to click Vick with the NYG up against the Jets, since I was worried that Dallas might sit Romo in the 2nd half with nothing to play for, but the Jets looked like they were going to make a comeback. I was also concerned that VICK could take a fluky hit early and get knocked out of the game. Instead, it was Romo taking the fluky hit and posted a big fat ZERO. Oh well, that's fantasy football. Still, second in total points in the regular season and second in the championship rounds is a good season, and I am looking forward to building on that in 2012.

Speaking of 2012, I got an early start this year and traded the 1.4 and Demaryius Thomas for Mike Wallace. From a value standpoint, I liked the 1.4/Thomas side. No doubt really.

My main goal with the trade was to diversify my FFPC-wide portfolio. I have four teams - this $1250 FFPC Dynasty League and three $750 FFPC Dynasty Leagues. I owned Demaryius Thomas in all four leagues (that's $3500 worth of FFPC Dynasty Leagues). I love Demaryius (as you may have read in past articles here), but that's a lot of eggs in one basket, so I wanted to cash out on some value and cut down the risk by trading him in one of the four leagues. I plan on keeping him in the other three as although that is still a lot of risk in one player, there is a very good chance he will sneak into the top 10 in dynasty WRs over the next year, and I want a large enough investment in him to make a real difference.

In any event, Wallace is a fine addition to this team. I am very much looking forward to sticking him in my lineup in 2012.

Here is the team now:

Tony Romo
Michael Vick

LeSean McCoy
CJ Spiller (yeah!)

Rashard Mendenhall
Donald Brown
Shane Vereen

Dez Bryant
Mike Wallace
Greg Jennings
Marques Colston

Miles Austin
Leonard Hankerson

Jermichael Finley
Vernon Davis
Julius Thomas

As of now, I am really liking my chances in 2012. I am especially looking forward to seeing Vernon Davis this year. I believe his monster playoff performances are a sign of great things to come.
