…your go-to fantasy football source for all things Dynasty!
For fantasy nerds, sometimes standard and PPR redraft formats are not in-depth enough to satisfy our inner-NFL general managers.
You may have heard of the Dynasty, Devy (short for developmental) and Individual Defensive Player (IDP) formats, but thought they are “too complicated” or require “too much time.”
We are here to tell you that is false.
That’s where we come in with several decades of combined fantasy football experience. To us, fantasy football is not just a September-to-December activity, but a year-round passion.
Our offseason is spent scouting incoming rookies and tracking every NFL transaction to see which players’ outlook improved and which ones did not. Summers are for following team training camps and compiling player rankings in time for fantasy draft season. Preseason is time for studying stats and film to uncover this year’s sleeper, while biting our fingernails with worry over who will fall victim to a preseason injury.
So, why do we do this? Because we’re enthusiasts. And, of course, to build contenders and win championships.
At Ride or Dynasty, we cut through the static.
Our team strives to bring you the very best dynasty advice on the web, arming you with what you need to win championships and rule your league like a true dynasty.
Meet the Team:
Ryan Bickerstaff – One of the founders at Ride or Dynasty and resident devy guy. I’ve been playing fantasy football in various formats for well over a decade. My fascination with fantasy football, and football in general, started at a young age when I discovered the fantasy draft feature on Madden. Had I been born athletic enough to play in the NFL, I see myself as a free safety. A few more things about me: I’m a Detroit Lions fan, my favorite football movie is The Last Boy Scout, and I’m an Air Force veteran with a business degree from the University of Toledo but making a career as a sportswriter is the dream.

JJ Wenner – Podcast Operations Director: I teach 8th grade English and am a proud parent of two fantastic children. I graduated from Hofstra and am working toward my MEd at DeSales University. I’ve been playing fantasy for 20 years and love the degenerates I have met along the way. The more twisted the league, the more I love it. Give me IDP or give me death! Proud Jets fan and avid reader of history and fantasy novels. Twitter: @JJWenner
Michael Klos – Co-Founder. Like many of you, I choose to believe I have a healthy obsession with fantasy football. After 15 years of playing all types of formats, competitively or just for fun, I’m excited to be a part of the Ride or Dynasty community. I’m dedicated to dynasty and redraft leagues, and I’m always trying to calculate the value of some sort of blockbuster trade in my head at any given moment. In my free time, I enjoy chasing my two kids around the house and challenging people to obscure Star Wars trivia. Twitter: @michaelsklos
Don Detwiler – New contributor to the staff at Ride or Dynasty, fantasy player for about as long as I can remember, NFL draft junkie, and recovering DIII offensive linemen (my knees remind me everyday that I had fun). I hope to bring a new voice and perspective to the staff here at the site. Outside the realm of fantasy I’m a middle school science teacher, ice hockey goalie, bird watcher, and lover of craft beer.
