I have a spot in my Dynasty league. It has a devy component. This will be the second year for the league, so it’s still new. Last year everything was auctioned, including devy picks. The team does not have any devy players and opted to put money toward active NFL players. The team is pretty good, and it does have all 4 picks this year. The devy pool is only depleted, not drained, so there are still viable options for this year and moving forward. With our draft, you either select a rookie (like normal) or you add a devy player who you get when they enter the league. It’s just buying early on talent.
Our league is not standard. It has a tweaked point scoring system to try and keep all positions somewhat balanced. Our starting roster is 1QB / 8FLEX / 1SF. That’s why we tweaked the scoring. It is a TE premium but tiered PPR scoring. It’s pretty fun and definitely not the traditional league.
There might be one of us who has played devy prior to this league starting, but it was formed around people who wanted to give it a shot. None of us are ‘sharks’ in that regard. The cost is $20 + $20 deposit to allow pick trading. Though I’m considering dropping the deposit this year. I trust the members.
