Attention fantasy baseball fans, the first cut of 2016 projections from Steamer and Fangraphs are now available. Thanks very much to Jared Cross, the man behind the Steamer projections, and Fangraphs for incorporating their playing time adjustments.
The projections update quite a few of our online features in one fell swoop, including team-by-team projections, player pages, player vs. player comparison tool and the dollar value calculator (roto and fantasy points versions), Last Player Picked.
This helps us get closer to releasing the 2016 fantasy baseball version of Draft Buddy. I am targeting end of this week but sorry, no promises! Doing my best here. If you aren’t already signed up as a baseball member (for free) on our website then make sure to do that and we will send an email to all members when it is ready for download.
Props to member Kevin Baker for helping update our MLB team depth charts. That is another piece of the puzzle for a new season of Draft Buddy. Thanks Kevin! Online cheatsheet rankings will get updated after Draft Buddy is released. Once all of our baseball features are ready for this season, then hopefully I can pull down the front page Under Construction image at some point too. Lots to do still so clearly it is time for me to get back to work!
Hey, if you used my Super Bowl 50 Quiz on Sunday, then you likely want the answers to mark your sheet… if you missed any of them from opening kickoff through yesterday when the Dow Jones closed. The highlights: Broncos won, under, National Anthem over, field goal first score, over 3 sacks (way over!), no cleavage from Beyoncé, Viva La Vida first Coldplay song, Cam Newton / C.J. Anderson / Ted Ginn the top passing / rushing / receiving yardage, coach’s challenge yes, other defensive player MVP (congrats Von Miller), orange Gatorade, Emmanuel Sanders receptions > Alexander Ovechkin shots on goal, and finally, Dow Jones down on Monday. See below for the answers to all 30 questions.
If you are hosting a party for Super Bowl 50 this week, or know someone who is, then a fun addition I’ve used for … a while … older than my current laptop … is a 30-question multiple choice quiz about the big game.
Predict who will win of course, Carolina Panthers or Denver Broncos, and the over-under. Guess the first score of the game and which players will record more passing, rushing and receiving yards. But also, how long will the U.S. National Anthem be sung? Who will win the opening coin toss? Heads or tails? What song will Coldplay play first? 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.
