Welcome to 25 Yards Later, SportsObsessive’s fantasy football podcast! Since we’re navigating the throes of the offseason, we decided to do something a little different. We invited on our first ever guests, SportsObsessive NFL and fantasy football editor Tom Ayling (whose last name I think I forgot to ever actually say during the podcast…sorry Tom!) and SportsObsessive founder Andrew Grevas to give us an intro to dynasty! Andrew and Tom are both longtime dynasty football players, so new players Allijah and Nick wanted to pick their brains.
As the pharmaceutical companies might say, “Ask our podcast if dynasty football is right for you.” Our guests share why they play dynasty (and why you should too), basic strategy, approaches to the startup draft, the 2021 rookie class, and some of their favorite dynasty stories. What about dynasty lends itself to experimental rules? What do our experts think is the next big trend in fantasy? What do they think about the strong incoming rookie quarterback class? Should you hold those rookie draft picks or trade them for someone established? And as always, shenanigans! We have a new drop and two new “sponsors” that we’re excited to share with the world! Plus, an unnecessary amount of Cincinnati Bengals discussion (hopefully that doesn’t scare off too many listeners).
If you’re interested in checking out any of the articles we plugged in the episode, you can read Allijah’s article, “How to Start a Dynasty Startup,” Tom’s “2021 Dynasty Startup Draft Picks and Advice,” and Andrew’s “My Dynasty Football Rebuild” on Sports Obsessive. And if you’re so inclined, you can read Nick’s essay on First Reformed on 25YL.
