The Analytics of Dynasty is designed to make you a better dynasty player. The book is a deep dive into statistical, production, and market research in dynasty football from 2008 through 2017. The information in the book will allow you to make better strategic decisions in startup drafts, rookie drafts, and trades.
A lot of the advice on the open market is tactical advice.
“Should I trade player A and B for player C and D?”
“You should take player X at 1.03 in a rookie draft.”
“Player Z is a good value in round 6 of a startup.”
That type of advice is nice but does not move the needle much for your dynasty win rate.
The type of analysis in this book will.
The book will focus on some of the following topics:
- How to exploit a player’s age.
- How much does NFL draft position matter for rookies?
- The type of production you should strive for with a pick in a draft.
- How to value rookies versus veterans.
- Startup draft strategies that beat ADP.
- The single most important thing that can increase your likelihood of winning a championship.
- How win-now startup draft strategies go wrong and how to fix them.
- The Rule of 7
This is just a preview of some of the topics in The Analytics of Dynasty that will increase the likelihood of winning a dynasty league.
With more than 100 picks in there are some early conclusions from the ongoing Superflex draft I am in. While historical Superflex data is limited, each draft can create a better feel for the pacing of positions and when positional runs will occur.

I joined a startup with my friend Tim Torch that is ongoing this week. We thought it would be a good opportunity to employ some of the principles from The Analytics of Dynasty in the startup to build a strong core.
The format is Superflex with 4PT passing TDs and 1.75 PPR scoring for TE. The remainder of the scoring is stock PPR. The total roster is 36 players deep with starting lineups of start 1QB/1RB/1WR/1TE/1SF/5 flex.
Rookie pick placeholders are in the draft with a rookie draft occurring after the NFL Draft. Continue reading Superflex Startup: An Analytics of Dynasty Build

The Analytics of Dynasty has some key features that are different from common dynasty strategies. Some key areas that will differentiate your teams include:
- Age impacts positions differently;
- Focusing on successful profiles instead of picking individual players;
- Identifying and avoiding common narratives that are plain wrong;
- How to properly value rookie picks.
One of the critical parts of the book that is different is the use of Wins Over Replacement Player (WORP) and Adjusted Wins Over Replacement Player (aWORP). These are two metrics that identify key value opportunities that you will only find in The Analytics of Dynasty.
