I kind of like Diamond Draft, but it seems it is geared more towards auction leagues while I am in a typical draft league.

Any of these systems for points league, also, can you input your own projections? Im looking for something to help keep tabs on stuf DURING the draft, instead of my usual clunky spreadsheet.

I know Fantistics lets you input your scoring system.

I use Xeifrank's software. :) It is geared towards Roto/H2H (non points) non-auction leagues. You could use it in an auction league, it just wouldn't keep track of how much money each team had left and inflation. I may make a version to do that in my spare time for next season. I started it out as a tool to help myself draft and as an excercise to learn Visual Basic. As the time went on, I added more and more features based on tools that I found myself needing or input from other people. Any good draft software is an important tool to help you draft the best possible team. At the very least it can help you pick the best player for your team during your draft. I like being able to save and reload partially completed drafts, especially on slow message board drafts. Anyways, the more tools at your disposal the better informed you will be win making your picks.

Want to make sure it wasn't last week before it goes off the shelf.

Anyone know?

best draft software

Postby jp1028 » Wed Mar 21, 2007 4:34 pm

i am new to this site but have been reading it for a little while now. my question is what is the best software for a live acution draft. i am in a 20 team mixed 5x5 acution keeper league and it is very competitive and the draft is very fast paced. i hate having to do everything by hand and am looking for a good software where i can pull up stats quick, keep track of available players, and a auction calculater. tell me what you guys think.

so now that more people have had their drafts already, is there any more feedback on any of these.? I am leaning towards Fantistics for my H2H draft this Friday night, so any feedback on any of them (sans Xeifrank saying he used Xeifrank!!!) would be appreciated. I am one of those people who researches things to death before pulling the trigger and I don't want to regret what software I used on my draft after the fact.

Appreciate your input.
