9/5 – 9/6 projections tweaks

The final cuts are in, but we will most likely continue to have some news trickling out in the NFL over the next 1-2 days regarding roster spots, traded, etc. We’re not going to do our final update on our PDFs and Excel files until Sunday evening at the earliest, but I will but updating the projections on the site all weekend.

If you have a draft and are looking for the most current cheat sheet, you can print out a customized one on 1 page using the Custom Cheat Sheet Tool (there are a lot of other options as well). Note: We have not yet updated IDP projections based on final cuts.

I’ll check back here and add anything if anything needs to be added over the weekend, but if you want to use one of our file or apps, here are some notes on the changes I’ve made after the final cuts.


Dropped Tom Brady a couple of spots from the position he was raised to on Friday. With Brandon LaFell on PUP for the first six weeks, Brady literally has nothing on the outside for at least their first five games (they have an early bye). That’s a problem for […]

The latest projections

Every year on this very day I am faced with the dilemma of having rankings that, despite being less than 2 days old, feel a little stale because of all the action in the critical third preseason game.

The problem is it takes forever to update projections, comments, create the PDFs, create the excel files, and update all the apps.

It cannot be done over the weekend, HOWEVER, I have taken the time to update the projections. If you have a draft from now (8/30) until we do a complete update on Monday, you have some options for fresh projections. They are:

Use the custom cheat sheet. You can create now a solid customized cheat sheet that will print out on one page that has the very latest rankings and projections. You can take a look, too, at the top-200 the tool generates, but the problem with that is it goes only by points. That’s why the QBs are all at the top and that’s why we do the PPR and non-PPR top-200 PDFs manually. You can also print out projections by position if you’re interested in that.

Check out Draft Analyzer software. The fine folks here have already updated their software with our […]

8/24 projection update

Update:  There is no MNF game this week, so we’ll be doing a full projections/PDF/excel file update later this afternoon. You can generate a printable custom cheat sheet today that is as of Sunday evening.

Note: If you use the 1-page printable feature it does print out a pretty solid cheat sheet, updated today, it just spills into a second page.

To access the projections, just click “Projections” on the main navigation bar near the top of the page, or head here. You can access the custom cheat sheet here.

8/17 projection update

Just a quick note today for those drafting (Sunday, August 17, 2014) that I have updated projections taking into account the Friday and Saturday games.

The problem with doing this is our PDF cheat sheets and excel files are now behind what the projections and the custom cheat sheet have. When we do our main projection updates early and late in the week, it’s a MAJOR undertaking that takes about 10-12 hours of work by three different people, so this time of the year bothers me because I know people are drafting and want the latest information.

If that’s you, you can generate a printable custom cheat sheet today (or Monday) that is as of Sunday morning (I could certainly do another update before our big update with all the PDFs and excel files, and I will likely wait until the MNF game before I do that).

The custom cheat sheet isn’t as good as the PDFs, but again if you want the most current rankings and projections, it has it. Also note that the MyGuru app will also be updated today with these current projections.

To access the projections, just click “Projections” on the main navigation bar near the top of the page, […]

Making room for an NFL Film Room

As I hope subscribers can see, we are once again pushing hard to improve our offerings and our overall service, and I have another announcement regarding that endeavor today.

The biggest issue we face during the regular season is that there are only seven days in a week. We produce so much content in terms of early-week review of the big picture, and then we quickly need to turn our attention to the upcoming week. Some/most people want us to do that while we’re still in review mode on Monday and Tuesday.

At times, it can become unmanageable.

We crank out so much in terms of written words, but one thing I believe is lost on people is that we also have to, you know, watch the games. We’re all obviously watching on Sundays as the action unfolds, but we’re obviously all over the place switching from game-to-game, so we also need to sit down and watch each game early in the week. That’s time consuming, and it’s a significant thing on our plates each week. We typically break the games up among the staff, but it’s not easy to get a clear and comprehensive overview of the week that was, and again […]

  • The DFS Virgin “Week 1″ September 11, 2015
    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season. I’m not going to lie, I have some butterflies in my belly. Maybe it’s because I just deposited $500 into an account at FantasyFued.com. Maybe it’s because I never […]
