Best In-Draft Software?

Postby Doc19 » Thu Jan 13, 2011 5:57 pm

I was wondering if anyone uses a particular draft software program during their baseball draft to keep track of "best available player", etc that they plug in their projections to... I used a program like this for the first time in fantasy football this past year, and liked it a lot. Especially in roto leagues I can see where it would have a lot of value (seeing what cats you are week in mid-draft, etc).

Any favorite programs out there, pay or free?

Thanks!

I really like rotowire.com's draft software. It definitely helps me to stay organized.

A couple of guys here at the Cafe (R&C among them, I believe) created one a couple of years back - maybe it can be resurrected by someone with the 2011 projections imported into it.

Don't know if this is the same one you're referring to but the last two years I've used DraftTracker. I think it was created by some forum folk and its awesome. It looks like they're going to be revamping it for this year. And its free! (or at least was last year)

I've been trying out the Beta version of RotoChamp.

http://www.rotochamp.com/Software/SoftwareMain.aspx

I love it so far.

I used Fantistics last year (which I liked) but I think I'll buy Rotochamp this year. It's quite a bit cheaper than Fantistics.

I've been faithful to fantistics for the past 4 years and they have made improvements every year. FOr me the most important things were the ability to write my own notes next to players in the database, and, as I participate in Yahoo drafts where picks can occur within 15 seconds, the fast search and "take off the list" as the draft progresses.

It is not perfect, but it does do a good job. But I will follow this thread as new softwares are constantly evolving

I use rotolab religiously. Have tried fantistics and rotowire, and IMO rotolab blows it out of the water.

Much more user friendly and easier to navigate. More accurate projections (use baseball forecasters numbers). They have a free demo, try them out. This will be the 4th year in a row I use them.
