Welcome to the first Dynasty, in Theory column of 2017! For new readers, this is a place where I write about aspects of dynasty fantasy football that are a little bit more abstract or conceptual.
The goal is a column that is less concerned with the who or the what, and more about the why and the how. I'm not trying to give specific, actionable advice that will help in the short term so much as I'm trying to build a conceptual framework on how to succeed in dynasty over the long term.
What I love about this format is that, by zooming out, we can create concepts that actually build on themselves over weeks and even over years. And today that's exactly what I want to do. Using past ideas, I want to build a case that David Johnson is the safest investment in all of dynasty right now. More importantly, I want to discuss why.
