I’m very excited to tell everyone that I’ve taken my talents to dynastyleaguefootball.com. I will continue to do indepth rookie reports and looking at second/third year players that can help your dynasty/keeper teams. Most of my stuff will be on the premium side, but please feel free to ask me questions and follow me on twitter @AndrewMiley
If you need some insight in what rookies to draft this year and how I predict they perform fantasy-wise this season, please read my rookie reports.
I will dissect at least two rookies per week by looking at their skill set, figuring out their role for this year, making a reasonable estimate for their production, and comparing them to a player you already know. Just follow the link here: here:
If you haven’t already, make sure you check out our twitter interviews with David Dobbs at footballguys.com.

Bryan’s interview can be found here:
Read up on everyone you should be following on twitter there and make sure you follow us both: I’m at @AndrewMiley and Bryan is at @Bryan_Fontaine
If you want more rookie ranking that include an IDP spin (my top 60 rookies) or you want some 2012 dynasty draft strategy (draft ended second week in May) , please read my blog at fantasyalarm.com:
I write two new articles at least every week. Follow me on twitter and ask questions of an eight year dynasty owner at @AndrewMiley.
I know what you are saying, “Another dynasty mock? You’re crazy. We haven’t even had the NFL Draft!” Since many dynasty football players, including myself, have the “sickness” all year-long, the guys here at DLF wanted to host it as a reference league for the pre-draft dynasty layout of the land. This time before the NFL Draft is especially fun as outside of Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, we have no idea where every rookie or the remaining free agents, for that matter, will end up.
The draft has fantastic representation from all the following: bleacherreport.com (Gary Davenport); draftsharks.com (Matt Schauf); footballguys.com (Sigmund Bloom and Jene Bramel); profootballfocus.com (Jeff Ratcliffe and Ross Miles); dynastyleaguefootball.com (Steve Wyremski); The IDP Guru (@OlingerIDPGuru); myself and a host of others from twitter.
You can check out the entire draft here:
1.01 Ray Rice, RB BAL
1.02 LeSean McCoy, RB PHI
1.03 Arian Foster, RB HOU
1.04 Calvin Johnson, WR DET
1.05 Aaron Rodgers, QB GB
1.06 Larry Fitzgerald, WR ARI
1.07 Rob Gronkowski, TE NE
1.08 Jimmy Graham, TE NO
1.09 Maurice Jones-Drew, RB JAX
1.10 Matt Forte, RB CHI
1.11 Chris Johnson, RB TEN
1.12 Cam Newton, QB CAR
The top five remains the same with some combination of Arian Foster, Ray Rice, LeSean McCoy, Calvin Johnson, and Aaron Rodgers. The tight ends in the form of Rob Gronkowski (1.07) and Jimmy Graham (1.08) went a bit too high for my taste. In leagues with premium tight end scoring (1.5 points per reception), I could understand the higher choice of those talented guys.
The best first round value was Cam Newton who I have seen go as high as 1.06. Yes, he is a second year player, but he ranked fourth overall in total points in this format last year. Even if he gets less goal line work, Cam should easily exceed his 1.12 draft spot.

The fantasy football off-season can be a great time to relax and get re-acquainted with your wife, children, other family members, and non-football friends. Balance in life is very important; however, this could also be a time of reflection if you want to make improvements in your dynasty leagues.
First things first: how does your team look for the upcoming year and the next two years? Do you have a glaring weakness at a position? Do you have several starters coming back from injury? Click here for rest of article:
The Senior Bowl (
) has been a part of the college players transition to professional football since 1950. This game has raised the profiles of future NFL players and the charitable efforts in Mobil, Alabama. I will be analyzing some of the players in the Senior Bowl who stood out to me. I tend to focus on the offense, but I discuss a few outstanding defenders as well. If you are looking for Senior Bowl practice notes, please check out
and follow @ShanePHallam and/or @RookieDraft (aka Joe Everett) on twitter. Shane and Joe were great interviews on my Dynasty Blitz podcasts (
) breaking down some of these players before the all-star game circuit. Today, I will be discussing many of the key players that hopefully will transition to the NFL and make an impact on your fantasy teams.
WR Joe Adams (Arkansas) - Adams was one of the most dynamic players on the field. He demonstrated good hands, separation from the defenders, and turned up the field quickly with explosion. The sideline is his friend and he uses whatever position he is on the field to help set up his blockers. Adams has a great spin move, but he did cough up the ball on his second catch of the day in mid-spin. For the rest of the article click here:
