Yes, there is 96 days left until the Chicago Bears take the field which will seem like a lifetime after the Chicago Blackhawks playoff season ends with the way our great baseball franchises are playing right now.
There are many reasons that I think dynasty fantasy football leagues are way better than just your yearly re-draft league and here are a couple.
1. Ownership- When you have to assign contract years and draft rookies and keep your cash flow in the positive it makes it feel like you really own the team. You have so many decisions to make year round that it becomes part of you. If you just show up at a draft in August and submit a lineup for 13 Sundays it’s nowhere near as rewarding to win then when it’s your team year round.
2. It’s year round- Most people look forward all offseason (100 days to kickoff) to football and 12 weeks later they miss the fantasy playoffs and have 40 plus weeks to wait until next year. In dynasty league there is always something going on in the offseason from rookie drafts, restricted free agency, trades, free agents, and trash talk 365 days out of the year. No matter how your team finishes there never is an offseason.
3. Year Round Trade offers- Maybe it’s me but even though you know it’s probably horrible there is something exciting about trade offers, and most times the email’s you get from owners after you reject their offers. I was offered Justin Blackman (suspended first four games of the season) for my 2014 1st and 2nd round picks. I turned down the offer because Blackman is a head case and though talented I hate his QB situation in Jacksonville.
If you really want to know why Dynasty leagues are the best is because this is the kind of email you get after rejecting the Blackman trade.. intense all year long!!
“Pretty curious what you thought of this offer.
