Alright, let's do this!


Get your Draft Buddy for 2017 here


The Draft Buddy is Excel-based fantasy football draft manager that we've offered at FFToday for the last 17 years! It allows you to create customized cheatsheets for all your leagues and keeps track of your draft on Draft Day.


-- Purchase Info --


You may make your purchase with your credit card through Paypal, or by check/money order. Please make sure you are logged in with your FF Today Account BEFORE you make your purchase. It will make the purchase process much easier for you.


As we've done in the past our Early Bird Price is $12.95. EARLY-BIRD SPECIAL ENDS SUNDAY, 7/31. Your purchase will entitle you to product updates through the start of the regular season (9/10) and get you one free entry into our $2500 DB Survivor Contest. The Survivor Contest will open later this summer.


-- Login Help --


If you have any trouble logging in after your purchase to download the Draft Buddy, please send us an email and we will assist you ASAP.


-- DB System Requirements --


The DB program requires a version of Microsoft Excel in order to function. The benefit of Excel is that Draft Buddy is both Windows and Mac compatible, with one exception - Microsoft lost their heads a few years ago and stripped out vital code making the DB incompatible with Mac Office 2008. The good news is, the DB does work with all other versions of Mac Office, including Mac Office 2011.


-- Product Support --


Mike MacGregor and Mike Krueger will be offering tech support here at this board or you can send us an email if you have any questions. We will be happy to help!


-- Projection Updates --


Here's our tentative schedule for projection updates. Unscheduled updates will occur as needed for injuries, player movement, etc. Rest assured, we'll be on top of everything.


6/6 - Initial release
6/15 - Done
6/29 - Done
7/6 - Done
7/13 - Done (a little early)
7/20 - Done
7/27 - 
8/3 - 
8/10 - 
8/17 - 
8/24 - 
8/31 - 
9/4 -  

Once you download the DB, you don't need to download a new copy to get the updates. Simply....


1. Open up the Draft Buddy
2. Click the "action" tab
3. Click the "Update Projections" button
4. Enjoy!


We welcome your feedback on the 2017 version of Draft Buddy in this thread but if you have specific problem or question please start a new thread and we'll be able to respond in a more timely manner. Thanks and happy drafting!

Our first projection update is ready. It includes Maclin joining the Ravens, knocking Perriman down a bit, Cam Meredith and Gio Bernard down a bit due to injury. Andre Ellington moved from WR back to RB.


We also uploaded a version 1.1 of Draft Buddy. This version includes a couple of background fixes from version 1.0 that primarily impact Office 365 users for both Windows and Mac.

Not a full projection update, as the next one is scheduled next week, but if you click "Update Projections" in Draft Buddy you will get updated depth chart and ADP. It was bugging me Eric Decker wasn't on the Titans in DB. Have a good weekend!

6/29 update is ready. Offense projection changes include Jets and Titans WR shuffle (Eric Decker), Bengals RBs, Chiefs WRs, and a few others. We moved a few player IDP positions, most interesting Melvin Ingram from LB to DE. Now, resume drafting!

7/6 update is done! Not a lot of changes with not a lot of news. From MK: Minor depth chart changes. Dropped Dorial Green-Beckham, slight movement for the New England RBs, Abdullah, Peterson, Miami WRs, and Chargers-D.

I realized tonight the player notes were misaligned with some players - mostly RBs - so if you already updated but notice, for example, a Paul Perkins comment with Ezekiel Elliott, try hitting Update Projections again now.

An perhaps unprecedented early update (maybe not, that a lot of updates over the years), but regardless the 7/13 update is done late afternoon on 7/12, which works out nicely since MK has an important meeting and I have a late soccer game tonight.


Notes from MK on the changes in this slow news time before things start to ramp up soon: A few IDP player notes added, adjustments for Mariota, Carr, Crowell, Tyrell Williams, Ebron and a few others.

Update is ready. Dropped Zeke one spot to No. 3 RB. Stay out of trouble please! :nono: Others adjustments for Newton, Kelvin Benjamin, Chargers WRs (rookie Mike Williams injury), and Zach Miller.
