Summer is an amazing time for dynasty fantasy football. We are beginning to get some practice reports; all kinds of fantasy football drafts are underway which gives everyone a chance to put their money where their mouth is in respect to player evaluation and strategy. This league is a 12 teamer with 40 regular roster spots and five taxi squad spots (rookies only). The lineups are as follows: 1 QB, 2-3 RBs, 2-5 WRs, 1-3 TEs (need eight combined players out of RB/WR/TE spots), 1 K and on the defensive side 3-4 LBs, 3-4 DBs, 2-3 DLs with ten total defensive starters. It is PPR scoring for all positions, tackle heavy IDP scoring, 6 points for every touchdown, .1 points per 1 yard of offense (rushing and receiving), and .05 per yard of passing and/or returns.

Since we have more information in June/July, I think it’s a good time to see how strategies might change from the start-up I did in late February. The league seems to be a good mixture of veteran players, so hopefully there will be less of a chance for an outlier. Much like a few of my previous articles, I will discuss some reaches and values during the draft.
