The Art of the Fantasy Deal with SirusXM Fantasy’s Mike Dempsey: Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast


Football Diehards podcast host Mike Dempsey joins Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast for a conversation about negotiating trades in dynasty leagues. 

You may be more familiar with Mike Dempsey as a radio host for the Football Diehards show Sirius XM Fantasy and the gameday co-host for the Jaguars’ Radio Network, but he’s also a helluva a fantasy GM.  I am in a 32-team, full IDP dynasty league and I’m not sure there is a better trade negotiator that I have seen than Mike, who has been one of the dominant teams.

Mike was gracious enough to join me for a conversation about the art of the fantasy deal:

  • Why trading is a pivotal strategic tool for his startup drafts in dynasty leagues.
  • Why he offers dozens of deals — and often 4-5 variations of a deal to the same owner simultaneously — in his leagues.
  • Why drafting a player someone else wanted can be the best time to trade away that player.
  • Positions that Mike and Matt feel are foundational anchors for most IDP dynasty formats.
  • Understanding the dynamics of “loose” and “tight” negotiators.
  • Owning the playoffs versus owning future drafts.

Check out the RSP Cast for this and more from Mike and me below.
