In Topic: 1. rules : starters and backups per team

06 September 2017 - 01:27 PM

I think what most teams will use is better, but likely not a big difference from what you would go with yourself. There is some impact on the overall rankings with the default overall ranking method since it moves the baseline past the starters and into the bench players to give some importance to depth. Note you can use decimals for backups, so say you think half the teams will draft 2 RB, 3 WR bench, and the other half 3 RB, 2 WR, then what you can use is 2.5 for each. Good idea if total bench players still adds to the proper total.


In Topic: Keeping a 1st loses your 1st and 6th?

That is an interesting rule Robbie, haven't heard of that one before. Nice thing Draft Buddy is pretty flexible to handle weird rules :)

 

Here is what I'm thinking... add an extra round to your draft, so if it goes to 13 then make it 14 on the rules tab. You will have to Compile Cheatsheets again to update the draft report tab, but change reset keepers and reset draft picks to no first so you don't lose any players (keepers) or draft pick trades you already input.

 

Then go to the draft report tab down to round 6 and put "** Pick skipped **" for each pick where you think someone is going to keep a player. And of course you can add this later, or select and delete (or Edit > Clear Contents) to remove if things change on draft night.

 

Do the opposite in round 14. Input "** Pick skipped **" for teams that are not keeping a player.

 

I think that works, right? Teams will then not have a 6th round pick if they kept a player but will have a 14th round pick. Make sense?


In Topic: Keepers not loading properly (manually)

Do the keepers cost a draft pick yes or no? If yes, then you also need to select the draft pick given up in the yellow cell to the right of where you select the position and player name. Sometimes people think it is the cell to the left, but it isn't. If you look closely at the team headings and the lines between them, it goes Pos, Player, [Team], [Bye], Draft Pick.

 

This will copy the player to the draft report tab beside the pick given up.

 

OR, you can input the players directly on the draft report tab. Some people, myself included even, find this easier. In this scenario you want to set both reset keepers and reset draft picks to no, otherwise you will lose those inputs when you Compile Cheatsheets again.

 

If keepers do not cost a draft pick, then make sure both reset keepers and reset draft picks are yes, Compile Cheatsheets. Do you have a draft report tab? Now when you input a player, position then name, they should be removed from the cheatsheets and add to the rosters straight away. If not, then let me know and we'll figure it out.

Update is ready. For the most part this a big depth chart change with all the cuts and roster moves over the weekend. Also a big clean-out of the riff-raff near the bottom of the rankings.

 

Player Adds -
K Ka'imi Fairbairn, HOU
K Younghoe Koo, LAC

 

Noteworthy movement  up - QB Brian Hoyer, C.J. Beathard, RB Matt Breida, RB Tarik Cohen, RB James Conner, RB Kerwynn Williams, WR Ted Ginn Jr. TE Ben Koyack.

 

Noteworthy movement down or dropped from rankings - WR Willie Snead, WR Phillip Dorsett, RB Chris Johnson, RB Jeremy Langford, RB Joe Williams, RB Jonathan Williams, RB Tim Hightower.
