Wow, has it really been a whole year since my last fantasy baseball post, “Fantasy Baseball Draft Buddy 2017 Released”? Looks like it, and I am going to try to take some steps to improve in that respect, but first and foremost, Fantasy Baseball Draft Buddy is in fact ready for 2018.
As in prior years, Draft Buddy is FREE for you to download, use and update all the way through the start of the MLB season. New members need only register an account, check you want Draft Buddy and proceed to download. Existing members who had access to the 2017 version, that access should expire automatically, but you can renew by going to your member page, clicking Add/Renew Subscription, renewing (again – for free), and you are all set.
Draft Buddy once again includes fantasy baseball projections from Steamer (via Fangraphs) and Zeile (FantasyPros), plus ADP from National Fantasy Baseball Championship. Depth charts are updated by one of our own, member krby13. We should be able to add ZiPS projections plus ADP from FantasyPros once those are available. Thanks to all of these people and organizations for their contributions to Draft Buddy.
Last Player Picked is also updated for Steamer and Zeile projections as of today. There is a tentative update schedule on the Draft Buddy download page, I am still tinkering with our online cheatsheets to improve those, and go take the mock draft simulator for a spin. And away we go! Bring on fantasy baseball season!
