Dynasty Fantasy Football Orphan Teams - How To Claim An Existing Dynasty Team

Dan Campbell - NFL Head Coach, NFC, Detroit Lions

At its very core, the game of fantasy football is intended to deliver a unique experience in which you are an NFL owner, general manager, and head coach, all in one role. Seasonal fantasy football replicates the responsibilities in fun, user-friendly packaging, but fantasy football dynasty leagues appeal even more to a savvy fantasy player looking for an increased in-depth simulation.

Dynasty league participants carry over the majority of their rosters from year to year, as real NFL teams do. Annual rookie drafts put a higher emphasis on first-year players. Fantasy players in dynasty leagues get a greater sense of satisfaction from roster building, and a higher level of importance is placed on every draft pick, waiver wire pickup, and all trades, which become even more fun and impactful with a longer-term view attached to them. Trading in the offseason is another great bonus feature in a dynasty league.

Real prospective owners in the NFL must buy an existing team and then rework and rebuild it. Turning a franchise without a winning direction into a champion is the ultimate goal for a new NFL owner. You can experience the fantasy football version of pulling off that type of feat by taking over an available and existing dynasty team in the Fantasy Football Players Championship (FFPC). Buying and reshaping a Fantasy Football “Orphan” team is a new and highly compelling challenge to embrace for those looking for a fresh and competitive way to play.

Featured Promo: Register for an FFPC Dynasty league startup league in standard, best ball, Superflex, and Triflex formats. All new sign-ups receive $25 off any FFPC contest! These leagues feature year-round team management and trades, and are available in slow-draft or live-draft formats!

FFPC Dynasty Orphan Teams: Turn The Franchise Around

NFL fans often think that someone else can do a better job of running their favorite NFL team and will frequently joke that they can be the person to turn the franchise around. Loyal followers of the Panthers, Broncos, Raiders, and Cardinals certainly have experienced much frustration in recent years.

Fans of other teams such as the Lions, 49ers, Packers, and naturally the Chiefs admire how the organization’s decision-makers have put the franchises in position to contend. You might be inspired by how Detroit has built itself up to become a top team in the NFC and becoming the Dan Campbell of fantasy football sounds like a gratifying adventure.

Claiming an available and existing FFPC dynasty team gives you the opportunity to see how you might fare when accepting the exciting challenge of turning a directionless team into an eventual champion. It is the ultimate pro football simulation in fantasy football, one which mirrors taking over a franchise, restructuring it, and making frequent decisions that will have a significant impact on the current state and future of the team.

FFPC Fantasy Football Dynasty Orphan teams are available in various price ranges and formats. Choose which available team fits your budget best, and what roster is most appealing in terms of goals to either win a championship sooner or rebuild a team in a longer-range process. You can purchase a team in standard dynasty, Superflex, Triflex, or best ball formats.

When you claim a team, the fun and franchise planning can begin right away. You will immediately be able to make trades to revise the roster and potentially deal for picks in the upcoming rookie/free-agent draft. Unlike in a seasonal league, you are not just waiting for draft day with nothing else to do to improve the outlook.

Those who take on a team at the $77 league price point won’t have to pay an initial one-time deposit, and some teams are made available at discounted rates. If the lowest price fits the budget better, or if you are newer to dynasty football, then buying a $77 or discounted team may be the most comfortable route to take.

FFPC Dynasty Orphan Teams for Sale

Claiming An Existing Dynasty Fantasy Football Team

The list of available orphan dynasty teams is available here. Buying an available team is an instantly immersive experience. The inactivity that usually marks the fantasy football offseason in seasonal formats doesn’t have to be endured. Begin by reviewing the rosters of the available teams, which can be a fun exercise.

Of course, you will want to target a team that has a few quality core players to build around. The amount and position of draft picks in the upcoming rookie/free-agent draft will also be a factor. Keep in mind that the FFPC is a tight end premium format (1.5 points for every reception) when considering rostered players at that position.

Lower-priced teams will often take more time and years to build into a contender, but you might enjoy the longer-term project and reward of guiding a team from mediocrity to the top. A team that is stocked with more impact players already on the roster can quicken your journey to cashing out with a league championship. Consider taking over one team that can win sooner and another that needs a lot of work to experience both types of opportunities.  


The Dynasty Team Purchase Target

My targeted FFPC Dynasty Orphan Team

When navigating through the list of available teams, I noticed there were a healthy amount of options in various price ranges. Some of the squads being sold at a discount were indeed tempting. You can take over teams that are actually priced under $20. Some of the lower-priced teams were thin on 2024 draft picks, yet were well-stocked with enough 2025 draft choices and quality players to make it worth the longer wait to get back into the rookie/free-agent draft mix.

Some teams were apparently built to win in 2023 and traded away many draft picks to contend, and now were put on the FFPC market for sale. Others had a good amount of 2024 draft choices and are priced closer to the entry fee for buying a new startup dynasty team.

Ultimately, I wanted to strike a healthy balance between a competitive current roster and one that can be built into a true championship contender in the next year or two. I am also strongly considering purchasing one of the under $20 teams, too. I own two current FFPC dynasty teams, and one is lacking in early draft choices, but I have been managing that team for three years and do not plan on putting it up for sale. Dynasty ownership comes with high and low cycles of seasons, just like in pro football, and I will stick through it all as part of the authenticity of the journey.

Here is the roster I am considering for purchase. It is a $100 Superflex league team at a $100 price point. It includes all of its draft picks from the No. 4 spot for this season. Here are the key players included from every position.

QBs – Trevor Lawrence, Aaron Rodgers, Mac Jones, Jimmy Garoppolo

RBs – Derrick Henry, Tyjae Spears, J.K. Dobbins, Tank Bigsby, Ezekiel Elliott, Sean Tucker

WRs – Garrett Wilson, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, D.J. Moore, DeAndre Hopkins, Michael Wilson

TE – Mark Andrews, Gerald Everett

This team is neither a full-on rebuilding project nor a real 2024 contender. In a Superflex league, the QB structure is concerning outside of Lawrence. Rodgers may only have one or two good years left, if that much. I might look to deal him closer to the season when it becomes apparent that he is ready to go for the new campaign, to a team that is in win-now mode. I might use the first-round pick on a rookie QB, as this team will be in a good position to draft one, and better backups are also needed. A quality third QB is always necessary in a Superflex league.

The previous team owner smartly rostered both top Tennessee RBs for 2023, and I can potentially start both Henry and Spears while also hoping Dobbins will actually stay healthy. The depth here doesn’t jump off the screen at me, and the RB crew is respectable, but not outstanding. A healthy Andrews anchors a very important position in a TE premium format.

During the upcoming season, this team won’t likely push for a championship, yet it does have the core of a quality roster that just needs some key changes implemented over the next year or two. Rodgers and Moore are potential trade chips. (I won’t expect too much from Rodgers, but some draft capital might suffice.) I will be looking to bolster the outlook at QB as soon as possible while also having an eye on upgrading at RB.
