Welcome one, welcome all. The 2009 Cheatsheet Compiler & Draft Buddy for baseball (settle down there you all-year round football guys) is ready. The Cheatsheet Compiler, went up on the website late last week including Rick’s projections. Draft Buddy was released last night. The Compiler and Buddy are both available in a single download file.
We wanted to get these tools out to everyone as soon as possible, so there hasn’t been time to update any documentation about either, yet. I will get to that soon and deliver instructions, tips and tricks via the pages linked from the Compiler homepage and this blog. You can also hit us with questions via the baseball forum, or shoot me an email.
Quickly, here is a description of the new stuff you will find in this year’s Compiler & Draft Buddy:
- Save league settings – Save up to 10 different league profiles in a single Compiler file.
- Import projections – There is space to import 2 other complete sets of projections to use as the base for your rankings.
- Average stats/projections – Create weighted average projections based on prior year stats and current year projections, including any projections you import.
- Overall rankings cheatsheet – Yes, finally, the Compiler combines the rankings for all hitters and pitchers into a single overall list.
- Average Draft Position data – Understand when players are being drafted, on average, so you know how long to wait on players you are targetting.
- Depth charts – A nice summary depth chart for quick reference.
- Alternate display options – Change the way Buddy shows you which players are already drafted – cross them off, grey them out or drop them completely off the cheatsheets.
- Enhanced summary tab – More info boxes with quick views of your top ranked players, top ADP players and your roster.
- Inflation – Adjust auction values for inflation impacted by keeper leagues and as the auction progresses.
- Improved roto tab – On the fly roto standings, now includes only starters, not the entire roster.
- Improved draft player buttons – Draft any player via the draft player button, from anywhere in Buddy.
- New cheatsheets – Overall rankings, ADP and depth chart, each copied from the Compiler.
Okay, there is a quick list. There may be more. I’ve kind of lost track myself. The bottom line is, we are rolling out HUGE improvements to both of these great draft tools for fantasy baseball. Download now and let us know what you think.
