There was no reason to update the projections in fantasy baseball Draft Buddy for about a month. The only baseball news described the labor strife between Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association.
Then suddenly, agreement! Baseball is back on, and MLB Opening Day is set for April 7th. Fantasy baseball players rejoice!
In the last week baseball player news hit us fast and furious, including big trades (sorry, Reds and A’s fans), free agent signings (Seiya Suzuki, Freddie Freeman), and significant injuries (Fernando Tatis, Chris Sale). Consensus top 3 pick Tatis is set to miss an estimated 3 months due to a broken wrist. An injury we never knew about, thanks to the lockout.
The fantasy baseball projections in Draft Buddy – ATC, THE BAT, Steamer, and our own Chris Spencer’s Draft Buddy projections – all projected over 140 games for Tatis. Well, that isn’t happening. So, another delay updating Draft Buddy until the projections catch up.
A fantasy baseball newsletter sent to members on Thursday outlined this. I’m glad to report, we are getting there with the updates.
ATC, Steamer Projections Updated
ATC and Steamer projections are updated for Draft Buddy, the Excel download, and online fantasy baseball dollar value calculator Last Player Picked. Tatis lost $30 in value! Luckily I avoided him in my early TGFBI and RazzSlam industry drafts. ADP from NFBC and FantasyPros is current for drafts from the past two weeks.
If you have version 1.0 of Draft Buddy, there is a version 2.0 now available. The major change to version 2.0 is NFBC draft sync. Click the following button to download Draft Buddy:
I plan to keep updating projections to Opening Day. There are also calls for Projection Pal, and will try to post that soon. If you have any questions about using Draft Buddy then by all means comment below or send me an email.
