A new version 3.0 is available with the ability to integrate with leagues run on Sleeper. If you play on Sleeper then download from the links above. If not, then you can stick with 2.0.
To use Sleeper integration, go to the sync tab and select Sleeper from the drop-down menu. Then input your Sleeper league ID in Draft Buddy. Visit your league in a web browser and look at the URL. An example is:
For this league, the ID is 525573093652869120. Note, the similarly looking ID for the draft board is different than the league ID. Make sure you are on the league main page to find the league ID. Once input, then try the links to franchise, keepers, and draft results. You can pull draft results using the button on the draft report tab.
If you notice any players that appear as ?? that means they are not currently matched in our player database. Please let us know the unmatched players to help us update our database.
Some changes require a new download bringing us to version 2.0. Please download from the links above.
There is a small fix with respect to the league sync feature but also a nice new addition! We now have ADP options for FFPC and NFFC. ADP from these mid-to-high stakes league providers are for real drafts and include many very sharp players. This is valuable data that should stay more current as we get closer to the season than data generated off mock drafts.
Projection Pal is now available, if you want to import projections from other sources. The Pal download file includes projections from FantasyPros (QB, RB, WR, TE, K, DEF) and FantasySharks (DL, LB, DB) as of June 26. So, there is one different source already set to go for you if you want to use those.
FF Today projections – offense, kickers and team defense – are now available! I made a few minor changes from the initial release, including some new players added to Draft Buddy. For that reason, you should download again if you had the pre-release copy (even though I didn’t change the version number). Let me know if you notice any issues. IDP projections from FF Today coming soon.
Initial release. Lets call it a pre-release, really. I wanted to get this ready for you guys who, like myself, are already drafting whether dynasty, best ball or even to pass the time.
I am making changes and adjustments, but this should work. Ongoing testing in my own drafts including an IDP best ball on Fantrax starting today. Let me know if you notice any issues! No projections from FF Today yet but I stuck in some other projections in their place for now. Enjoy!
Version Notes, 2019 Download 2019
We are almost there! Real regular season football next week!
If you are experiencing problems with run-time errors when compiling cheatsheets or updating projections, try the alternate Draft Buddy file posted above. It pulls the update pages from a different server. This works for many people who experience these errors.
I also added a bunch of new completed draft files if you want to see how I drafted in a variety of leagues.
New version 1.1, but don’t get too excited unless you are a veteran user on a Mac. The only change is from finding the copy league settings from prior year Draft Buddy feature was not working on Mac computers. That is now fixed.
Ah, but I did upload a copy of my Draft Buddy from a new 12-team PPR redraft league through 14 rounds so you can review the draft. I am drafting from the 8th spot and started WR-WR-WR.
Initial release for 2019! Here we go, happy drafting!
Version Notes, 2018 Download 2018
Two small things, I didn’t even update the version number, but one of them cannot be corrected via the projections update and requires a new download. That one is the team defense position historic stats. Those had some mistakes in the initial release. Download again to get Draft Buddy with the correct team defense stats.
The other issue was some name mismatches between the adp tab and other tabs. For example, “Ronald Jones ®” showed as, “Ronald Jones III” on the adp tab. That is now fixed, and does not require you to download a new file.
I added .xls versions of each of Draft Buddy and Projection Pal for those of you still using an older version of Excel like Excel 2003. You know that is really old, right?
Hooray for fantasy football draft season! We are back, and this is the initial Draft Buddy release for 2018. We have projections, rankings and ADP available from multiple sources that will be updated until the start of the NFL season. My projections and rankings are not done, because I wanted to make Draft Buddy available first, but I will get those published soon.
In case you missed one of the late feature additions last year, the ability to import alternate rankings including from Dynasty League Football, then read this post for details.
Now lets get ready to draft your future championship teams! If you have any questions then shoot me an email at [email protected]. Thanks!
