Sorry, but currently we don't support Auctions. Only snake drafts. Perhaps in the future we will support auctions.

Can't wait to check this out. Does it allow importing your own projections or just those you already have?

Thanks

There isn't a feature to import your own projections. We do compile our projections from between 7-10 sources.
There is a sheet called Personal Queue that allows you to sort players by your own rankings.

This one had me nuts for a couple of years... until I just embraced the fact that I was never going to have enough time or knowledge to beat out the so-called "experts" at their own game.... I finally embraced the fact that as a collective the many projections available to me for free are going to have to be good enough, because I'm not coming up with something better.

The only thing I do is collect four or five different projections, check them for outliers on the player-pool I'm interested in, adjust my tiers for my own gut feelings, and get down to it.


There are several great resources here at the Cafe. J35J releases his own projections complete with comments on each player, CurtisPride compiles projections from around the web and has released a composite list, some Cafe experts have put together position by position rankings on the Rankings page, and Rookies n' Cream has released his MDP chart. All are valuable resources and free (minus a little donation for their hard work in some cases ;-D ). I've used them in some combination or another each of the last two years and have finished in the top three in both of my main leagues, one roto, one h2h.

DraftTracker actually uses RookiesNCream's MDP lists on our MDP Rank and Tiers sheets - He helped with the original DraftTracker in 2009.

We just published the Beta 2 of DraftTracker at http://drafttracker.weebly.com

Currently we have just CBS Projections - but will incorporating more combined projections as they become available.

zebulon,

The software looks great! Is there any way to copy multiple players into the queue and still keep the functionality that grays out the name after the player is drafted?

Thanks Again.

I have seen many requests for Auction support. It was not intended to be in this version - however, due to the demand for it, we may see if we can add it in time. It will depend on how quickly we can nail down the rest of the new features. So, while I can't promise, we will try to see if we can get it in within the next couple of weeks before the majority of drafts take place.
