“WHAT I WOULD DO”
“A DYNASTY LOOK INSIDE MY MIND”
Hello fantasy footballers it’s me again “THE FANTASY TYPHOON” here to bring you another installment of dynasty football the Fantasy Football 1 on 1 way. In this episode I am going to walk you through the changes that I made to a dynasty team that I took over last year and show you where we came from and where we are going in the future. We are a 4pt QB pass TD and a 1 point ppr settings league. We made the playoff in 2012 but got kicked out the first game we played. We have revamped the QB, RB and TE which held us back last year. Now we are 1 or 2 WR moves away from competing for the top spot.
MOVES DURING THE 2012 SEASON
The first move I made was to get rid of Mikel Leshoure because we here at Fantasy Football 1 on 1 saw that he was under performing. He could not catch the ball in space which is a top requirement for a Modified Spread Offense running back so we knew his time was limited. We traded him off and picked up Tony Romo for our starting QB.
Then we wrapped up Christin Ponder and Kendall Hunter and took some 2013 drafts picks. We knew that Ponder’s tape was awful to watch and the crowded backfield in SF was not working for our three year window.
MOVES WE MADE OVER THE OFF SEASON
We first traded off Michael Vick and picked up Jason Witten during the off season.
Then we traded off our 2014 1st and 2nd round picks to acquire the services of Steven Jackson. We have more than enough time to replace the 2014 1st and 2nd round picks before next year’s draft.
ROOKIE DRAFT RESULTS
We had our rookie draft the second week in May and now this is what my squad looks like as of today.
Our draft went like this:
- · Tyler Eifert (Keeping)
- · Justin Hunter (Keeping)
- · Robert Woods (Keeping)
- · Stedman Bailey (Trading/Keeping)
- · Aaron Mellette (Trading/Keeping)
- · Tyler Wilson (Trading)
- · and Ryan Swope (Trading/Keeping).
As you can very well see, YES I take my own dynasty advice and I picked up future studs in Eifert, Hunter, and Woods. Now Stedman Bailey, Aaron Mellette, Tyler Wilson, and Ryan Swope all came from the proceeds from the Ponder/Kendall Hunter trade. Since we have acquired the services of Tyler Eifert I quickly shipped off Antonio Gates for Brent Celek and a 2014 3rd and two 2014 4th round picks. Once Eifert blows up and takes over for Jermaine Gresham then I plan on trading out Witten for a 1st round pick whether it’s this year or next. I also plan to trade the 2014 3rd and two 4th aquired from the Brent Celek trade for a 2014 2nd. If you have not had your dynasty rookie draft I have complied the rookies into tiers to help you find the 2013 rookie draft gems (CLICK HERE)
The rules are that we can carry 28 guys through training camp but the Monday before the season starts we have to be trimmed down to 24 players. Right now we have 26 players on the roster and once FA opens we will quickly pick up Chris Thompson and Charles Johnson and Levine Toilolo and drop the Atlanta Falcons defense. We will pick up Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense to jell with our Seattle Seahawks defense once one of these guys busts in training camp. We expect it to be Levine Toilolo. We are trying to trade off Tyler Wilson while the off season buzz is high and have the option to keep Toilolo just in case his preseason tape is a hit. The best offer for Tyler we have received was a 2013 3rd and we declined. We expect to bring in at least a 2014 2nd especially if he receives the nod to start this year.
We are in negotiations to ship off Percy Harvin and a low level player and secure the services of Dez Bryant. This article was just a brief overview to get you familiarized with our players and how we got to where we are today. Tune in to the next installment to find out why we are moving Percy for Dez before camp.
