About Us

Ride or Dynasty was started in 2019 by a group of writers from a now-defunct website. Michael, Ryan, and JJ were the last three remaining in the Slack channel and decided to try their own thing.

They didn’t want to be flashy or shocking.

They wanted to talk dynasty football.

Ride or Dynasty is pushing ahead in the industry by providing content written by dynasty managers for dynasty managers. Our goal is to provide you with the information you need to make your own decisions. You want to be able to call your teams your own.

Nothing fancy. Nothing flashy. Just Dynasty Football.

Don Detwiler – RoD Podcast, Writer

Bio: Fantasy player, NFL draft junkie, and recovering DIII offensive linemen (my knees remind me daily). Was I good? No, but I learned a lot about the game.

Matt Gleason – Writer

Team: Green Bay Packers

Bio: A mechanical engineer by trade working in design and development. Dynasty football is one hobby I spend lots of my free time diving into. Time that isn’t spent on the computer working, gaming, day trading, or researching fantasy football, I spend hanging out with my wife and son, and playing slow pitch softball as much as I can. Go Pack Go!

Erik Kreil – Writer

Team: Washington Football Team

Bio: The Washington Football Team has taught me to have a realistic opinion about sports, and I think that comes through with my writing. I’m also a licensed orthopedic Physical Therapist, so I have a special interest in evaluating and discussing player injuries and prognosis.

Blair Pierroz – Ro3 Podcast, Writer

Team: San Francisco 49ers

Bio: I am middle school math teacher from California. I attended UCLA for undergrad before getting my credential & Masters from UC Davis. When I’m not teaching, I am almost certainly playing sports, poker, or a board game. My love of stats & sports make for an obvious love of fantasy. I will do my best to apply game theory to help you find an edge in completing trades for your dynasty team.

Duncan Smith – Writer

Team: New York Jets

Bio: I’m currently living on the beautiful west coast of Scotland. My interest in the NFL began with a desire to find a sport that (in theory) gave every team an equal chance of winning it all every year. However, I’m a Jets fan so I may have taken a wrong turn somewhere. You can find me hanging around the dynasty & IDP sections of RideorDynasty.com.

Brendan Taffe – Ro3 Podcast, Writer

Team: Buffalo Bills

Bio: Currently finishing grad school in beautiful Buffalo, NY and yes, I’m a Bills fan.  I’ve been playing fantasy for years but got into Dynasty/SF 5 years ago and I’ll never go back. When I’m not tinkering with my lineup I’m either watching the Red Sox or Celtics, I’m at a movie theater, or I’m beating my friends at a drinking game.

Matthew Walters – Writer 

Team: Dallas Cowboys

Bio: I’m an athletic trainer for a high school in Dallas, Texas. In case you don’t know what an athletic trainer does, I am the guy that runs out onto the field to help an injured athlete. While there is plenty more to it than that, that is the jist of it. I have a BS in Kinesiology focusing on Sports Medicine and a Master of Science in Athletic Training. I have been playing fantasy football for close to 15 years.

Devin Wojick – Writer

Team: Seattle Seahawks

Bio: I am currently completing my Bachelor of Education degree, following my Bachelor of English at Mount Allison University up here in Canada. I consider myself a fantasy football vet & general football fanatic. My main areas of interest are in SF/2QB leagues. If you see me complaining about the Seahawks, it’s a product of love. If you see me complaining about the 49ers, it is coming from a place of hatred.

Robert Woo – Writer

Team: San Francisco 49ers

Bio: Robert probably knows the least about fantasy football out of this fine crew, but the most about being a minority. He writes for television and marketing when he’s not checking his Bitcoin prices. His safe words are “Jimmy Garoppolo.”
