You may have noticed that “FFDRAFTPREP” recently popped up in the menu. As a RotoViz subscriber, you now have access to the suite of tools that I’ve been releasing for the past four years at FFDRAFTPREP. I have literally spent well over 1,000 hours on these tools and they are a major part of my preparation. I first began building them to help me get ready for the season and prepare for/navigate my personal drafts. They have become instrumental in my growth as a fantasy player and analyst, and I use them every day from the middle of June to the end of the first week in September.
I’m pumped to be sharing the tools with you for the 2018 season! I really hope that you enjoy using them and that they help you to be a more successful, well-researched, and prepared fantasy manager.
This year’s package consists of four tools which you can learn more about here. All four are housed entirely in Microsoft Excel and should be used with versions of Excel from 2010 or newer on PCs and Macs.1 Don’t be fooled — these tools are much more than spreadsheets and should be thought of as stand-alone applications.
To help you efficiently get ready for the season, the package includes a stat explorer that’s equipped with all the stats you’d expect, some fun bells and whistles, historical projections, fantasy summaries and a whole lot more. The Excel Projection Machine will assist you in building an appropriately put together set of projections and explore player’s ranges of outcomes. The Draft Dashboard will help you to confidently navigate your draft and make optimal decisions while on the clock. And yes, it will help you to prepare by offering full-fledged mock drafts in which you’ll be competing against the computer. The tool is highly customizable and can accommodate leagues with trades, keepers, and unique roster settings. Finally, a weekly stat explorer, providing you with all the information you need to make start/sit and streaming decisions, will be released every Wednesday during the NFL regular season.
More information can be found here and you can download the tools here! I’ll be posting videos, tutorials and other reference materials in the coming weeks. The notes and guide sections included in the tools are also excellent resources. If you have any questions that go unanswered feel free to consult the message boards or email firstname.lastname@example.org
