We did our very first dynasty start up draft 2 weeks ago and I was arguing that it is too soon to draft this early. I was told it is “dynasty” season now and if somebody gets injured before the season starts it means nothing since you have this player forever. My question is was I right about the start up draft being too soon? Of course I have Travis Etienne and if we would’ve drafted closer to the NFL kickoff I would not be in this situation.
I know about the rookie draft after the first year and it starting maybe the day after the NFL draft is complete but for the first year of a dynasty shouldn’t the draft be held closer to kickoff to avoid potential preseason injuries? What am I missing?
