The 2012 NFL season is less than a week away. Is your fantasy lineup set? Have you formed any early Super Bowl predictions? We caught up with former NFL greats Marcus Allen, Warrick Dunn, and Ahman Green at the NFL Fantasy Draft Week Party in NYC and asked them those questions, what storylines they are looking forward to the most this season and much more. See what they had to say below and check back tomorrow for Part 2 where we talk to Marshall Faulk, Amani Toomer, and Jake Plummer.
