I am Zach and I am passionate about fantasy football. I began playing in 2013 in redraft formats and in 2018 I jumped right into dynasty by starting my own league. In 2019 I started another, and joined several more dynasty leagues – the list continues to grow!
I have always enjoyed writing and it’s translation for me into fantasy football has allowed me to create and share my thoughts with this amazing community.
As with everything I do, when I find something that grabs my interest I commit myself all-in. In 2014 I began to find success, I won a 12 team redraft SF IDP league that my friend ran. The format was too much for me at the time though and I left the following year. I started to focus more on fantasy hockey while playing fantasy football with a bit less interest. Fantasy hockey is quite the beast, daily lineup setting is very unforgiving and requires constant time and attention. It became a passion and I excelled, winning several championships between the small handful of leagues that I still maintain to this day.
In 2017 I started to shift my attention back to fantasy football. I needed to win. The effort started to pay off, I made playoffs in my one home league and finished 3rd. Not good enough though. At this time I was just in one league, my long-running and still going 12 team home league. I was able to focus, learn, read, and absorb all things fantasy football.
In 2018 I won the league championship belt and repeated in 2019. In a league with my closest friends, it meant a lot to me! The cash and trophy were extra bonuses, it was winning and bragging rights that meant the most. I wore that belt at every opportunity around them, on snowboard trips & even at my commissioner’s wedding which I MC’ed.
Now my focus is building dynasty squads and contributing to this wonderful community that has offered me so much for several years.

The Trade Deadline Why do trade deadlines exist in dynasty fantasy football? They were created for a reason, right? Are they still necessary, at least
