I feel like I’m behind getting this out to you, but then I look back and my first newsletter went out February 19 for last season. Hmm… maybe I am continuously behind, or just feel that way. As I mentioned to one of our members Joe this morning on Twitter, I am juggling other things on the home and work front, so I am on a sort of every other day schedule to work on this website. Not ideal, but doing the best I can.

In terms of features, there are currently no changes from the prior year version of Draft Buddy, except some compatibility things with the newest versions of Excel for Mac. Give me strength Microsoft. Hey, it was already pretty good feature-wise as-is, right? It is a time thing, and a free tool to boot, so not only hard to jam in more features but also hard to justify.

Lets give a shout out to the websites that provide the baseball projections for Draft Buddy, currently Steamer-Fangraphs and FantasyPros for the Zeile projections. I updated each of these this morning.

Plus, the ADP comes from FantasyPros and NFBC. If you are looking for an online money league to play in then NFBC is the way to go. They have a long history and excellent reputation.

Last but certainly not least, props to members Kevin and Mark who are back again this season volunteering their time to keep the depth charts up to date for us. Thanks guys!

Okay, that is about it. Thanks for supporting Draft Buddy for fantasy baseball, fantasy football, or both! If you have any questions then please email me or hit me up through our Facebook page or on Twitter.

Super Bowl LI Quiz

If you are hosting a party for Super Bowl LI (a.k.a. Super Bowl 51) this week, or know someone who is, then a fun addition is a 30-question multiple choice quiz I put together about the big game.

Predict who will win of course, Atlanta Falcons or New England Patriots, and the over-under. Guess the first score of the game and which players will record more passing, rushing and receiving yards. Who will win the opening coin toss? Heads or tails?

Also, how long will the U.S. National Anthem be sung by country singer Luke Bryan? Will Lady GaGa wear an outfit exposing her midriff? You read that right. Or, how many slices of pizza will Domino’s sell on Super Bowl Sunday? What color will the Gatorade be that is dumped on the winning coach? There are 30 questions worth 35 points.

It is a compilation of popular prop bets for the Super Bowl which your party-goers and friends can fill in for fun or throw a little money in a pot to the winner. Football knowledge is not a prerequisite to completing the quiz … and tends to have zero correlation to actually scoring well, based on history. Click the Super Bowl LI graphic to download and then print the PDF. I will post the answers on our Facebook page next week. Enjoy the game!
