Fantasy Draft Commandments

Written by Andrew Miley on August 9, 2011

Draft time is finally upon us. The new CBA has been sorted out. Almost everyone is in training camp and working out save for a holdout or “mysterious” injury (ask Jeremy Maclin). The Hall of Fame induction speeches were made, inductees cried, and no HOF game was played. Preseason games start this week and we get to see who is gelling with their new team and who isn’t.


Now is the time our wives, girlfriends, children, and non-football friends just shake their heads and ask us why fantasy football? Many of us with this madness can’t wait to draft. This is when the hours of scheming, studying, game watching, reading countless blogs, and listening to podcasts, finally get rewarded.


Many fantasy football drafts have already started and will continue up through September, so I thought it might be a good time to figure out some rules to (read more…)

Players who received help from Free Agent signings and trades

Written by Andrew Miley on August 3, 2011

Sometimes in fantasy, it is not always about the new player joining a team. It is about how the new player fits in with the existing players and what nightmares it causes for opposing defenses. Many years ago, a rookie named Randy Moss joined the Minnesota Vikings. Moss was fantastic at helping draw defenses away for the other skill players by stretching the secondary, which caused more running lanes and quicker developing routes. Cris Carter, Jake Reed, Robert Smith, and a host of QBs were the beneficiaries of a young Randy Moss. There are several players that will have better seasons because of a team’s new found synergy aka the combined action or functioning caused by the influx of new talent due to free agency and trades. In this article, we will explore three players: Jay Cutler, Chris Wells, and Cam Newton that will all get to experience this synergy (read more…)

Why fantasy football and why is this guy writing about it?

Written by Andrew Miley on August 1, 2011

Fantasy Football

First of all, welcome to fantasy football talk at Draft Breakdown. There are great guys here writing about college players, what makes them tick, and how well they will transition to the pros, and so on. You love football and want to know more, as that is why you are here. I’m the nutty guy who is quoting and looking up stats, watching every NFL game, taking notes, checking twitter constantly, and cyber stalking Adam Schefter (ESPN) and Jason LaCanfora (NFLN) to gain all the insight I can. Yes, my friends, I am a fantasy football fiend.


How did I get this way and how am I going to help those of you who want more football get there? I was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and raised on football in Northeast Ohio, 30 minutes from the Hall of Fame. I had a football in my crib, no (read more…)

Mark Ingram Involved in Accident with 18-Wheeler

Written by Gil Alcaraz IV on July 22, 2011

Before you get all worried like I did when I first saw this story run across my computer screen, let me reassure you that he is okay.


Early this morning in Huntsville, Alabama, former Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram and his girlfriend were heading southbound on Leeman Ferry Road in a 2008 Infiniti when they collided with an 18-wheeler. Luckily, the accident was nowhere near as bad as it could have been.


Although the Infiniti’s air bags deployed and the car’s front end was thrashed, neither Ingram nor his girlfriend was injured. The truck driver also avoided injury.


According to police, alcohol or drugs were not involved in the accident. After the accident occurred, Ingram was apparently picked up by friends and driven away before his wrecked car was towed.


Ingram and former Alabama teammate Julio Jones were in town for a Thursday (read more…)
