Check out a new tool

We’re ready to “unofficially” introduce a new tool, the “Draft Guru” program. It’s very similar to the excel draft tool, although not quite as flexible. We will be adding a few things to it soon. But if you don’t have or like excel, this is something to check out. Basically, it’s a stand-alone draft program that you can use to manage your draft. It will help you pick the best possible players, and it can also be used to track and log any draft. What I like best is the mock draft capability. Using the mock draft feature, you can test out a lot of strategies drafting from your specific draft position and draft against the computer using ADP, VBD, and more (for the computer to make all the other picks). You can export your results when you’re done. I like the simplicity of it. It really should not be very overwhelming for a novice computer user, as the excel-based tool is. If you like the excel tool, just keep using it, as we’ll continue to update it regularly this year.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
