Is the Rotoworld Draft Guide worth it?

Postby Skimo77 » Mon Mar 07, 2011 2:25 pm

Does anyone here own it? I'm curious as to if it's worth shelling out the cash for it, i feel i'm relatively competent on my own, but a little extra info is always nice. What do you guys think?

At one point in time, yes, but there are so many FREE ranking lists, cheat sheets, player projections, position analyses, bloggers, podcasts etc to compare to, save your money!

Thanks, ya that's what i thought, but i like its features... i'm on the fence on shelling out for the Double Play feature they have, because it updates throughout the season...

Maddog is right, that being said, I did buy it and it is helpful. I also purchased Fantistics which I really do like. Some may argue to do it yourself on projections but reviewing a couple quality services each yr has its upside IF you can find one or two that do a superior job. I am in a league that I win as much as $3,500+ a yr in prizes and side bets, thus the investment is worth it to me.

Nice, so do you like Fantistics or Rotoworld more?

Fantistics for sure. They have a package that gives you daily updates on players. You can set the rankings to your settings, you can conduct your draft from the software.

One feature I really like is that you can manually change the stat's of any player. Say you think Nelson Cruz is going to hit only 26 HR's and they have 30, you change it, hit recalculate and it changes the value and ranking of the player. I use this on 100+ players that i feel may do a bit better or worse than there projections.

I think it cost $45 or so, but for the amount I stand to profit each year it is worth every penny.

If you are in an auction it is even more helpful on inflation values throughout the draft as well.

Hope this helps.
