    Limit number of player on Offense Tab/

    Hi Craig. Good question. I do believe years ago we had the RB and WR at 80 each, and QB around 40, so the one-page print was a lot better. Also noticed my eyes getting worse with each passing year which isn't helping! We can adjust some of the print settings to help improve this. Try these ideas: 1. Highlight just the QB to WR area. Start at the cell with the heading "QUARTERBACKS" instead of the very top of the tab (because that top part is not necessary), and down to the last WR in the ADP column. Choose File > Print Area > Set Print Area. 2. Go to File > Page Setup and adjust "Page" from Fit 1 wide and 1 long to 1 wide and 2 long. 3. Now Print Preview and, in my case at least, it cuts off about TE 15. That might be a little light. If you aren't going to draft the bottom 10 or so QB, then you can highlight the TE from the heading down, copy (CTRL-C) and move up about 10 or so cells and paste (CTRL-V). Now Print Preview again. Only print page 1? 4. Then to get the K and DEF you can set a separate print area for them and print to fit one page. Now you've got 2 pages which should be much easier to read and cross off. And you can keep playing with the same settings. Does that help? Some of the print settings might be different depending on your version of Excel. Going be memory in some cases you actually have to start the print process and then the page setup button is available to make these changes.

    Advice for 5th pick in keeper league

    Nice job Matt. Good luck!

    2pt Conversion

    Hi Hman. We don't include that in Draft Buddy, nor are projections available for 2-point converts. The reason is because they are pretty random and have minimal impact on the player rankings.

    Is O-flex position W/R/T??

    You can use it for any combination of QB/RB/WR/TE. See the checkboxes under each position on the same tab? Beside it says, "use position in flex"? Check the positions that the O-Flex applies to for your league. If your league has a superflex position and a regular (not QB) flex position, then what I suggest is put 2 starters in for QB, because every team will typically want to draft/start 2 QB anyway, and then use the O-Flex for the regular flex, checking off RB/WR/TE.

    Advice for 5th pick in keeper league

    I would go with Dobbins at 5 if available. Non-ppr if he is gone then probably Zack Moss over the WRs, but the WR ahead of Dillon even though I do like Dillon. QB does look a little rough for you short-term. Tua could be a consideration at 17 or 20 but really you want to go BPA - best player available - regardless of position. We need to improve your keepers for next year where Green is not in that group, probably not Bell and Slayton either, and Edmonds would only possibly be a keeper a year from now if he excels after a Drake injury. Maybe package 17 and 20 to move up for a Burrow/Dillon/Jeudy?

    Nomination Order change serpentine

    No problem. Good to hear from you. Enjoy the auction!

    Nomination Order change serpentine

    Hi rwren. Sure, at the top of that tab - the auction report tab - there should be a drop-down you can switch serpentine to straight (or custom). When you switch, give it a second, and it should update for you.

    Need Help, please....

    I agree with Mike, I would go more for trust the talent and not worry as much about situation in a rookie draft. Therefore Lamb, Jeudy > Reagor, Ruggs for dynasty, even though I've been picking Reagor quite a bit in redraft this season.

    Need Help, please....

    Sorry Bob, I was out all day, and when I saw it wasn't a tech support email I figured someone else would chime in. What did you end up doing?

    Using Sync Tab with MFL

    Sweet. Thanks Pat. A lot of challenges with those super-sized MFL leagues but think I've ironed them out. Good luck, and have a great season!

    Using Sync Tab with MFL

    Hi Pat. Try 06 as I think MFL uses two digits for the division and conference ids. Edit: That is zero-six

    Draft Buddy Survivor Contest

    It was a rough week. Can't believe the Saints lost to the Falcons, Colts even with Brian Hoyer lost to the Dolphins. Thanks for the continued support Old School, and good luck the rest of the season! Good luck to our final 7!

    Draft Buddy 2019 - Projections Updated 9/4

    Last scheduled update is ready! Go get it. action tab > Update Projections ... and Compile Cheatsheets. For those still drafting, good luck! If we don't need to do another update (i.e. no more big news changes), then thanks for all of you and have a great season!

    Draft Buddy 2019 - Projections Updated 9/4

    Still working out the timing with Mike K, Rob. Do we think the last domino has fallen before the chaos of Week 1? Hope so!

    FIX: Run-time Error 1004 When Trying to Update Projections

    That is right, the problem only happens when Draft Buddy connects to the internet. There is none of that while drafting... unless using MFL Integration I suppose, but the alternate file we posted should all be fine. It connects to a different server, including our MFL Integration program, which appears to work without triggering this error.

    Draft Buddy Keepers: Will not update

    And then make sure to change the two reset options on the action tab to no, before you Compile again. That is likely what removed the keepers from the draft report tab after you selected the pick the first time.

    Helpl on Keeper Function

    Okay thanks for letting me know that. I should make that more clear.

    Helpl on Keeper Function

    Hi goatlocker. Thanks for using Draft Buddy this season. With the keepers cost a draft pick, what is happening when you select the draft pick is the players get copied to the draft report tab, beside the pick that is given up. My guess is, if you look down the draft report tab now, those players are gone. That would explain why they now show as undrafted on the cheatsheets. When you update and compile, you need to change both reset options on the action tab to "no" - as in, do not reset the keepers or draft report tab. If you haven't saved the file yet since updating, and this is the only thing you've done is update since the last save, then I would close Draft Buddy, do NOT save changes, then open it back up, change those reset options and update again. If you've saved and those kept players are gone off the draft report tab, then best bet is this... go to the keepers tab, change the draft pick drop-down for each player to the blank selection. Then change it back to the proper draft pick so it will copy them once again to the draft report tab. Sorry you lost those guys. I used to have people put the kept players right on the draft report tab for leagues like this and I sort of wish we can kept it that way, although people found it confusing why they weren't putting them on the keepers tab, which is why we changed.

    Run Time Error

    FIX: Run-time Error 1004 When Trying to Update Projections

    For those still having trouble with this even after trying the above solution - or couldn't try it because on a Mac - please go to the download page and download the alternate file. Had a few people report they've had success with this file. The only difference is it pulls the update files from a non-https server. I'll make sure to post the new update files in both places for each of our remaining updates.

    Draft buddy iPad help

    Yeah, sorry. The Excel for iPad does not support some of the advanced features used in Draft Buddy.

    Draft buddy iPad help

    Hi TAM. I'm not confident Draft Buddy will work on an iPad. Do you have a laptop or other computer available that has Excel?

    Draft buddy scoring help

    If your league scores anything separately for pass completions, then just add that to the scoring above. Say it is +1 per pass completion, then use: -1 per pass attempt +2 per pass completion
