Cheatsheet Compiler/Draft Buddy - Good resource or waste?

Postby knapplc » Wed Mar 01, 2006 5:47 pm

I got an email from RotoChamps today offering their Cheatsheet Compiler & Draft Buddy.

Did anyone use this last year, and if so, how did you like it? Is it reasonably accurate or a waste of time?

It sounds like the program I got off of fftoday.com last year. If it is, it is an awesome program. Can you provide a link to get to it? I tried looking around rotochamps. Do you need to be a member?

RotoChamps Draft Buddy and membership is free if it's needed. Pretty cool SW.

Would be awesome except they don't have total bases! Does anybody know of other Macros Excel spreadsheets. Particually for the price of nothing?

I used it last year and won two out of three of my leagues. some of their projections need to be tweaked a little bit, but I found it is a great baseline for valuing players. You can't beat it for free.

For the total bases guy. Just add an extra column in excel. (H-(2B+3B+HR))+(2B*2)+(3B*3)+(HR*4)=TB

That's really the point - the cost is excellent. ;-D

The Draft Buddy is something you use during the draft to predict drafting trends, is that it? Is that worth using, or did you just use the cheatsheet compiler?

I didn't read the email too closely, I guess. It looks like this probably was what you used last year:

RotoChamps email wrote:We have a great FREE tool available to help everyone with their drafts and auctions. The Cheatsheet Compiler and Draft Buddy is an excel application developed as a collaboration between rotochamps.com and Mike MacGregor of FFtoday.com. We debuted it at rotochamps in 2005 and have made some enhancements for 2006. The most important change is the ability to choose your own scoring categories.

Hey, this looks great! Thanks for the info. Hopefully I can keep up with all the speedy (forced) picks in the 90 second time limit of my Yahoo live draft when it happens..

Hi number9. 90 seconds is a pretty tight time limit. I'm not saying it can't be done, but make sure you practise some mock drafts first to make sure you are comfortable picking players and browsing to where all the tabs/reports are that you want to use.
