2012 NFL Draft Guide is live!

Monday, July 09, 2012


Later this month, NFL teams will begin preparing for the season with two-a-days. We've already been in regular-season form for months.

Our 2012 Draft Guide is now officially alive and kicking. Of course, we've got meticulously formulated sleepers/busts, rankings, tiers and projections. But we've also gone in depth with more than 500 player profiles, featuring unparalleled analysis of where each guy has been and where he's going. Here's an example from LeSean McCoy's profile:

2011: A perfect fit for Andy Reid's offense that maximizes his strengths, McCoy impressed with amazing short-area quickness to the hole, explosion to the corner, and more power than expected in short-yardage situations. While his receptions dropped by 30 in Michael Vick's second season as Eagles quarterback, McCoy saw a marked uptick in carries (by 66) and touchdowns (by 11). Despite missing the season finale, Shady finished fourth in rushing yards and second in fantasy points.

What Changed: McCoy is now armed with a five-year, $45 million contract extension. With the exception of Demetress Bell replacing an injured Jason Peters, the offensive line remains intact.

Outlook: The coaching staff has suggested repeatedly that McCoy was overworked to the tune of 321 touches over 15 games while playing more snaps per game than any back in the league. An explosive three-down back and efficient goal-line runner, McCoy can still expect to touch the ball 16+ times per game as a valuable playmaker. The 20 TDs may be unrepeatable, but McCoy's floor remains as high as any fantasy back.

Once you've armed yourself with the information, we'll start tailoring strategy to your league's format. Mike Clay discusses Auction Draft strategies, Frank DuPont highlights differences in PPR drafting, Jeff Ratcliffe expands our IDP coverage and I have a breakdown of a non-PPR expert mock. You'll also get Evan Silva's game tape analysis, Chris Wesseling's Dynasty thoughts and all of our Bold Predictions.

The best part of this online guide is that unlike a magazine, it's constantly updating. We'll be adding columns, updating projections and adjusting to training camp injuries right up until Week 1 kicks off.

We live and breathe football 24/7, even in the offseason. No one is better equipped to get you ready for your 2012 fantasy football draft.
