  1. I touched up the MFL Import. Download and install again. The previous one wasn't handling symbols like & or # for example in the password. The updated one does.
  2. There is a new My Fantasy League Import on the Apps menu of www.footballguys.com. This one has you log in first, and then shows you all of your leagues. Also keep in mind that the My Fantasy League import only works for leagues hosted by myfantasyleague.com. If your league is hosted by one of the other sites Yahoo, ESPN, CBS Sports, etc. you will have to manually enter your information. It goes pretty quick though. Just click File – Setup and walk through the setup pages. When you are done, click File – Save As… and give it a name associated with your league, so you only have to enter your league info once.
  3. The VBD Spreadsheet App doesn't work in Open Office, because Open Office doesn't support VBA macros. I would look at the Draft Dominator for Mac instead. It is available on the Tools tab of the main page of www.footballguys.com.
  4. If you are in windows you need to enable macros. As soon as you open the spreadsheet, there should be a yellow tool bar with a Enable Macros button on it. If you are using a Mac, the Mac doesn't handle VBA macros.
  5. Click Tools - Macros - Security, and make sure the Macros are enabled.The other option is to use the Draft Dominator to generate your custom cheatsheets. It doesn't not require MS Excel.
  6. For the Lineup Dominator... Dodds does the current week Offense and team defense Herman does the current week Kickers Norton does the current week IDP Henry does the forward weeks offense and team defense Herman does the forward week Kickers Norton does the forward week IDP Gray does the SOS.
  7. Internally, we keep two spreadsheets. One that is released each week with the basic players that get drafted in typical drafts... and another one that goes a little deeper that is used as the basis for the DD Player Pool. Version O was released by accident. If the players down there, become more likely to start, they will get moved up though into the blue cells.
  8. Open Office doesn't support VBA macros... so you won't be able to click the Generate Cheatsheets button...
  9. You should be able to stretch it as wide as you want. What is your screen resolution set at? 1024 x 768 or bigger is recommended. To check your screen resolution, right click on a blank spot on your windows Desktop, click Properties from the popup menu, then click Settings, and adjust the Screen Resolution slider bar near the bottom.
  10. Every Thursday for sure. Sometimes Tuesday too, depending on how the weekend games went.
  11. when I export the player pool, it looks like the names are formated First and then last. Unfortunatly when i alphabetize them it only lets me do it by the first name.Anyone else here have a file list I can use?In excel, you can sort by multiple columns... Click Data - Sort, then sort first by Position, and second by Last name.
  12. If you have Excel, I'd probably export the Player Pool, double click on the csv file, and sort it by position and last name in Excel. Then delete the columns you don't want and format and print the way you want.
  13. In the Draft Dominator, Dodds does the offense, Herman does the kickers and Norton does the IDP.
  14. The Age and Experience columns are now in the VBD sheet. The are around columns AY I believe. You could whip up a formula that inflates the players projections based on how young they are.
  15. 1. I'd lean towards RB=1, WR=2 and Flex=1.2. I'd run with Joe's.3. The Player Pool is weighed by the Weekly Weights. Look at the bottom of the Game By Game window. Uncheck the Use Weekly Weights checkbox and click Recalculate. This will make the Player Pool Points the same. By the default schedule or by your schedule, week 17's weight is set to zero, so the Player Pool only shows 16 weeks worth of points. You can use the weekly weights to set your divisional opponents or the playoff weeks to a little heavier weight... say 1.2, this will affect the player pool points too.
  16. Thanks for the reply and advice. I have never really tinkered with the Baselines before, just used Joe's secret formula. It's no problem to get the WRs and RBs on the same scale, but I have no idea how to relate those to the other positions. Inputting something close to the worst starter method, for instance, means the DD then has Manning at 3 overall, and Baltimore and Chicago at 4 and 5 overall. I'm not sure I believe the integrity of these figures, but equally it doesn't seem right to just shuffle about with the figures to make the defenses be, say, fourth or fifth round picks instead - I wanted the DD to tell me where each player/team should be valued rather than me telling it! Have I got the wrong idea here?In that case... check Joe's baseline... and then note the fantasy points for each position where the VBD value is 0. Put these number in the User Configurable by Points for each position... and go with a number between the RBs and WRs for those to get the RBs and WRs on the same scale.
  17. I'd look at leaving the Flex at 5... and playing with the Baselines. If you use the User Configurable by Points... and set the RB and WR points to the same (for example 200 points)... then the RBs and WRs will be on the same scale. You will want to put TEs on this scale as well.
  18. maybe try using the decimal point < . > instead of the comma < , >. > ,Yep, and make sure your Regional Settings use a dot . for a decimal point, rather than a comma ,From Windows - Click Start - Control Panel - Regional and Language Options. And set the number to use a dot .
  19. No, currently the player pool needs to be sorted by VBD (or $$$ for auctions), in order for the Best Value window to do its magic.
  20. I didn't change the mock draft stuff in the last release. I'm not sure why you are seeing a difference.
  21. You have to download and install DD again this year to get the 2007 player pool. This years DD should open your league files from last year.
  22. If you change the number of teams after changing the Pick Order... it defaults back to serpentine. Set it back to straight draft and it should be fine.
  23. Be sure to check out the two Maurile links in the Draft Dominator Master Thread pinned at the top of this forum. There is additional tweaking available that you can do for each of the top players at each of the positions...
