What started as a “simple” Excel spreadsheet to help me generate custom cheatsheet rankings for my own (multiple) fantasy football leagues, is now in its 18th year available to the public to similarly help you get an edge to win your fantasy football leagues. Of course I am talking about Fantasy Football Draft Buddy.
Fantasy Football Draft Buddy 2018
Draft Buddy creates position and overall ranking cheatsheets for your fantasy football league, based on your scoring, number of teams in the league, starting positions and other factors. It works for draft pick style and auction style drafts. It handles keepers, two-QB and flex leagues, team defense or individual defensive players.
Draft Buddy includes detailed player projections from FF Today, prior year stats from the last three NFL seasons, and even has space to add other projections, whether from another fantasy football website or projections of your own. You can weight these various projections and stats any which way to factor into your cheatsheets. Oh, it also has Average Draft Position data from various sources and updated depth charts.
Draft Buddy tracks your draft! This helps you stay organized on draft day, as you input each pick then it marks the drafted players off your cheatsheets. Draft Buddy can track a pick style draft or auction. It even integrates with MyFantasyLeague.com, so if you are in an online draft on MFL then you don’t even need to input each pick, but instead click a button to update the entire draft to the current pick.
Rules and Scoring Setup Video
I did a quick video with the 2018 Draft Buddy so you can take a look, and see how quick it is to set up your rules and scoring, and generate your initial custom cheatsheets.
We have regular updates scheduled for the player projections, ADP and depth charts, and these run from now through the start of the NFL season, so you might as well purchase early, plug in your league settings and then update until your draft.
The current update schedule is 6/6 (initial release), 6/18, 6/28, 7/5, 7/12, 7/19, 7/26, 8/2, 8/9, 8/16, 8/23, 8/30 and 9/3. Whew! Essentially weekly on Thursdays starting later this month, just prior to the weekend when most drafts occur.
We also add unscheduled updates as necessary for major injuries or other breaking NFL news with a fantasy impact. Last year we did four of those, including Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension, Sammy Watkins trade to the Los Angeles Rams and Spencer Ware’s injury.
$2,500 Survivor Contest
As a bonus for Draft Buddy members everyone gets a free entry in our $2,500 NFL Survivor contest hosted at FF Today. Pick one team to win Week 1 of the NFL season and if they win, then you advance to pick a team to win Week 2. You cannot pick the same team twice, and if your team loses then you are out. The last man standing, wins! Take advantage – not everyone does – and you could win $2,500 for your efforts.
