My family and I are looking to switch up our league to a dynasty league. We've been on ESPN but I keep hearing Myfantasyleague is the way to go for dynasty leagues. Is this correct?

I've been playing for years but have never done a dynasty...I'm ecstatic.

MFL and FleaFlicker are prob the most popular sites for dynasties! My own personal preference is Flea. ;-D

First off, welcome to the cafe j per. Hopefully you'll stick around and enjoy this great site. ;-D

Secondly, like stomper, I'd give another nod to fleaflicker. Not only is it free, it has one of the best interfaces I have seen. You'll definitely enjoy a dynasty, but it's a much different dynamic. Have fun and good luck.

The 3 i use are fleaflicker, fanball, and yahoo.

I like Each for different reasons. Flea is free an easy. Fanball costs money but is solid all around except live scoring which seems a little behind. And yahoo which is easy and improves every year.

If you're ok with paying for it, MFL is far and away the best site. The only thing Flea has on it is 3-way trade ability and free-ness.

other than that, MFL has a better waiver interface, trade interface, customizability, accounting system...a WAY better online draft ability, for the yearly rookie draft and/or the startup if you aren't having a live draft (you should have a live one because they're SO MUCH FUN though)...


That's nto to say Flea is bad - I like it quite a bit. And the fact that it's free makes a difference. But without cost involved, MFL is hands down a better hosting site.

That is fair to add. I spent about one season on MFL, and it was being paid for me. I didn't have much chance to get in depth with it, and this was a few years back, so they coulda changed. I'm highly biased towards free services, since I'm a cheap mofo. So insinctive is right on checking out MFL if you have little qualms with paying.

Thanks for the help guys. It looks like we're going to go with MFL. They have a special running right now so it will only be like $4 each person. It's definitely not the flashiest out of any I saw but holy smokes is it deep.
