Once upon a time, a young man dreamed of being a college athlete in basketball and/or football. Then he quickly realized he was pretty short, quite slow and not very athletic, so he tried to become a sportswriter. He got a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from UMass Amherst, wrote for a few papers after school, did some college sport radio, cover a game in Fenway, met Dr. J and really enjoyed the ride for awhile. Then he decided it was time to mold young minds and become a special education teacher.
I am that man. I am Todd Foster, the newest writer on the block at Dynasty Football Digest. My venture into the fantasy sports world started when I signed onto my dial-up internet and then drafted Shaquille O'Neal in his first season on LA Lakers. Soon my journey brought into the world of dynasty fantasy sports about 6 years ago and I've been obsessed ever since that day. After some insanely long banter session over the phone, David Wright (@ff_spaceman) and myself decided a year ago to hit record on rants and started a Tale of Two Rival podcast. Now that I got the itch, I decided to dive deeper into the madness and become a dynasty football writer, so here I am.
Preferred fantasy formats: Dynasty (shocking!), Superflex, TE Premium, Devy (just starting out), an all IDP league (that's right...)
My FF beliefs: WRs > All (unless Superflex...get them QBs son); Punt QB and TE in 1QB and non-TE premium leagues, Studs over projections, Go against your league trends and exploit it
My real football beliefs: Brady is the GOAT QB, but Bill is the GOAT of all, the Pats were terrible before this title run so LAY OFF, defense wins championships, MORE FLEA FLICKERS and WR PASSES PLEASE, man up and don’t depend on zone too much, Bruschi is my spirit animal
My Life priorities: My family (particularly my wife Joanne, my son Jaxon and our dog, Molly), my students, then everything else
Interests outside of FF: Smoking BBQ (my ribs are da bomb), the finest of double IPAs, stouts or really any craft beer, pretending I’m still good at basketball, sucking at wiffleball, getting out with the whole family wherever and whenever, starting to brew my own beer too
