  1. If you're starting a dynasty PPR league, and need an active owner, please let me know. Prefer LeagueSafe, no IDP, no auction. Frank
  2. Hi Luksil, I'm in your same boat, so if you find something that works, please consider letting me know too! Frank
  3. Hi GoBears84! In the notes above, you told me a couple of years ago to "Copy over PlayerNotes.dat and Players.dat" to my laptop, and that would transfer my player notes. I've transferred them to a flashdrive from my desktop, but can't remember what to do next to transfer them to my laptop's DD? It's in my C drive, under FBG, but I can't transfer them? They are both successfully on my flashdrive, and when I plug it into my laptop, it seems like I should be able to copy and paste them over the existing PlayerNotes.dat and Players.dat, but I can't seem to get it to do that. Any suggestions would sure be appreciated!
  4. Oh my goodness! I think the setting the "Game by Game" to inlcude week 17 was the skeleton key! Thanks so much for your patience!
  5. Man, I'm trying, but can't seem to find the key! I open DD, and it has the rankings and fantasy points for each player. I input all of my league settings, and name it "Frank". Then I close it and open PD. I import the "Frank" DD file into PD, and I have all of my settings now in PD. Then in that PD file, I change all of my projected points to 100% user. I then go through and methodically change the yards rushed for each player to match what I want, and I delete everything else. So if I want Jamaal Charles to be listed for 275 points, I plug in 2750, and the total fantasy points now says 275. Perfect up to here! I now save that PD file, and open DD. I import that PD file into DD, and as expected, all of the values are only about 16/17th of what I want…but why are they not the same conversion factor for all of the numbers? For example, when I input 275 points for Jamaal Charles into PD, and then import it into DD, my DD file now shows 259.1. That 259.1 is 94.218% of the 275. If it were an exact 16/17ths of 275, it would be 94.117%, or 258.8. It's important to show you two more examples to make my point clear. Let's use LeSean McCoy and Adrian Peterson. I want McCoy's projection to be 256 fantasy points. So I input 2560 into PD, import that saved file into DD, and it shows 242.4 fantasy points. That 242.4 is 94.687% of the 256. I want Peterson's projection to be 246. When I do the same, I get 225.9 points for Peterson in DD. That 225.9 is 91.829% of the 246. 91.8% for Peterson compared to 94.6% for McCoy is a pretty large discrepancy Since I want DD to have the values of 275 for Charles, 256 for McCoy, and 246 for Peterson, I figured I’d just input a “larger” number into PD, and when the PD to DD conversion was done with the import, that I’d get pretty much exactly what I wanted in DD. I started by increasing the number in PD by 17/16th, or 1.0625. So the 275 became 292, the 256 became 272, and the 246 became 261. But when I import those numbers, because of the differences in that percentage when it converts them into DD, I get 275.1 for Charles, 257.5 for McCoy, and 239.6 for Peterson. What I want is Charles 275, McCoy 256, and Peterson 246. What I get is Charles 275.1, McCoy 257.5, and Peterson 239.6. It’s quite a discrepancy, and I’m stumped. Any help would sure be appreciated! Thanks!
  6. Regarding the differences when I import my "User" fantasy points from PD. For some reason the "%" that is uses seems to differ. Here are some examples for when it converts it from 17 games to 16. Name Jamaal Charles, 275 pts input into PD, 259.1 in DD when import PD, % = .94218 Name LeSean McCoy, 256 pts input into PD, 242.4 in DD when import PD, % = .94687 Name Matt Forte, 247 pts input into PD, 229.4 in DD when import PD, % = .92874 Name Arian Peterson, 246 pts input into PD, 225.9 in DD when import PD, % = .91829 I’m not sure why those percentages for the conversions it does aren’t the same. Is there a way to set them to all be the same? Thanks again!
  7. GoBears84, you continue to be just flat out awesome! It worked like a champ! A bit of labor, but it did exactly what I wanted! Thanks! Two followup questions...I've been out out of the DD loop for a while, and am going on a trip where I'll need my laptop to use DD for a long draft. 1. How do I import that new PD file that I've just created on my desktop, over to my laptop? I'm sure it's easy, and I'd sure appreciate the info, or at least a hint as to which forum I can find it in! 2. The second is similar. I've just done a "ADP_User.csv", and also want to import that onto my laptop...just copy to a flash drive and transfer it over to the hard drive of the laptop? Sorry to be going back to basics, but I put this off, and am leaving tomorrow, so am hoping to figure this out as reasonably quickly as I can! Thanks as always! frank
  8. Hi again. Is there a simple way to change the projected scoring for players in Draft Dominator? I don't want to input all of the details of yards rushed, yards passing, TDs, passes caught, and all the other stuff that makes up the final number. I just want to plug in my own numbers. For example, My DD shows Luck with 354, Stafford with 353, and Foles with 350. How can I plug in 390 for Luck, 320 for Stafford, and 412 for Foles? I figure that if I can do that, then my DD will do its thing and figure out drop value, Custom Dropoff if I choose to use it, and all the other cool things it does. So I just want to go into each position, and change the numbers to my numbers. Easy peasy? Or really hard? Thanks!
  9. Hi Jeff! I’m new to Dynasty Leagues and saw the great write-up you did on another dynasty league question above. I've been playing redraft for several years, and now have picked up two PPR dynasty teams, so have absolutely no experience with dynasty. The first one is a start-up, and the second is an existing team that I have taken over, and I wanted to know if you would mind taking a look at it to see where I need to go in the upcoming draft? I have the 1.07, 2.07, 3.07, and 4.07. The roster can be up to 26 players, I presently have 23. We start 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1Def, 1PK. We have one flex that can be RB, WR, or TE. .1 point for each yard rushing or receiving, and 1 PPR. .05 point for each yard passing, and 4 points for passing TDs. Otherwise fairly standard scoring In looking at this team, it appears to me to be weak at QB and WR. So depending on how the NFL draft goes in April, it seems that at 1.07 I should be trying to home in on something like the following: QBs: Geno Smith, Barkley, Manuel, or Nassib WRS: Allen, Austin, Patterson, Hunter, Woods, Wheaton, or Hopkins RBs: Lacey, Bernard, Franklin, Bell, Michael, Latimore, or Ball. I see in that previous reply that you “…also like the idea of grabbing QBs drafted in the 3rd round or higher in NFL draft in 3rd round of rookie drafts (even if in bad situations).” I’ll have to wait until the NFL draft in April to see where they go, but it seems like you would be reluctant to take a QB at 1.07 unless they were drafted 65th or later (3rd round). Now because I’m drafting at 1.07, I suppose it’s likely that the stud RBs will be long gone by then. So I’m hoping to learn a bit about how you would evaluate this team, and what general approach you might suggest for the draft. It’s a while away, but I’m trying to become familiar with this new format. Thanks Jeff! Rivers, Philip SDC QB Flacco, Joe BAL QB Kolb, Kevin FA* QB Charles, Jamaal KCC RB Forte, Matt CHI RB Ridley, Stevan NEP RB Tate, Ben HOU RB Hunter, Kendall SFO RB Ballard, Vick IND RB Mendenhall, Rashard ARI RB Hillman, Ronnie DEN RB Turbin, Robert SEA RB Thomas, Demaryius DEN WR Bowe, Dwayne KCC WR Austin, Miles DAL WR Sanu, Mohamed CIN WR Moss, Santana WAS WR Burleson, Nate DET WR Gresham, Jermaine CIN TE Pettigrew, Brandon DET TE Lewis, Marcedes JAC TE Graham, Shayne HOU PK Texans, Houston HOU Def
  10. Hi Jeff, Here’s another one I’m noodling over. This owner started out 8-0, but has been doing it with smoke and mirrors, at least as far as I can tell. He lost this weekend to go to 8-1, so he’s certain to make the playoffs. But he may be willing to trade to strengthen his team for the playoffs. I play him in week 11 though, so don’t want to do anything that hurts my chances of beating him that weekend! He's weak at RB, having lost McFadden, at least for the time being, but has great depth at TE. Although we can play a TE flex, his strength there might mesh with my weakness at TE, and perhaps his need at RB. So I’m thinking of offering him his choice of Reece, Woodhead, Andre Brown, Forsett, or Tanner, for Vernon Davis. I’ve perked up a bit after a couple of the trades you’ve coached me on, so am now 5-4. Thoughts or suggestions? Thanks again Jeff! This is a 12-team PPR redraft league. Start 1 QB, 2-3 RB, 3-4 WR, (7 total RB/WR/TE, I usually try to go 3-3-1), 1-2 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF. 20 player roster. Pass TDs = 4 pts, all others 6. 1 for 10 yards (decimals) rushing or receiving, 25 yards passing. My Team: QB: Vick/7, Luck/4 RB: McCoy/7, Spiller/8, Turner/7, Reece/5, Woodhead/9, Andre Brown/11, Bryce Brown/7 (for McCoy), Forsett/8 (lottery), Tanner/5 (another lottery) WR: Welker/9, Austin/5, Britt/11, Broyles/5, Simpson/11 TE: Pitta/8 DEF: Bears/6, Bucs/5 K: Suisham/4 His Team: QB: Newton/6, palmer/5 RB: McFadden (injured?), Daryl Richardson/9, Hunter/9, Ingram/6, Ivory/6, David Wilson/11 WR: Dez/5, Antonio Brown/4 (injured?), Hilton/4, Blackmon/6, Manningham/9, Wright/11, Hankerson/10 TE: Gronkowski/9, Vernon Davis/9, chandler/8 DEF: Texans/8 K: Janikowski/5
  11. Hi Jeff, I’m considering another idea, and hope you have the time to comment. I’d offer Turner for Jamaal Charles, assuming that he’s tired of Charles’ carry limitations in KC. I’ve perked up a bit after a couple of the trades you’ve coached me on, so am now 5-4. He’s also 5-4. Thoughts or suggestions? Thanks again Jeff! This is a 12-team PPR redraft league.

  12. Hi Jeff, I’ve got another trade idea that I’d appreciate your perspective on. I lost Burleson and Fred Davis this week, got Broyles and Fasano off the WW, and I’m trying to strengthen my lineup for the rest of the year. What about my Vick OR Luck, Spiller, Turner, and Broyles, for his Cutler (or maybe Ponder/Weeden?), Charles, Wells, and Thomas? (Edited to add: What if I simplified it to just Spiller and Turner for Charles and Thomas? Do you like that better?) I’d get Jamaal Charles and Demaryius Thomas, potentially an upgrade over Spiller and Turner. I’d also get Chris Wells as a backup whenever he returns, and lose a bit of depth at QB since I’ll lose either Vick or Luck, and will get Cutler (or Ponder or Weeden?) back. I’m assuming that Charles is the real deal, and along with McCoy, that would be a nice starting RB pair. And then since we can start 4 WRs, I’d have Welker, Thomas, Austin, and Britt/Simpson. We’re both 3-4, so I’m treading water hard and hoping to start the win machine rolling! 1. Overall, is Charles the real deal, and worth trading for? 2. Does this trade make sense and improve my team? 3. Do you like Cutler, Ponder, or Weeden in return, and if you could choose, would you keep Luck or Vick? Thoughts or suggestions? Thanks again Jeff! This is a 12-team PPR redraft league. Start 1 QB, 2-3 RB, 3-4 WR, (7 total RB/WR/TE, I usually try to go 3-3-1), 1-2 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF. 20 player roster.

  13. I love the deal for you. You should be able to make up the TE points at RB/WR. If you are not happy with Davis in a week or so, try to get Bennett or Pitta on the cheap. Hello again Jeff, Thanks, and I did it! Here’s a follow-up question on another possible trade. I got an offer of Alex Green and Fitz for Spiller and Britt. He’s 3-2, really weak at RB, and Mathews is the guy I’d like to get. I’m assuming he’s made of stronger glass this year! Would it be worthwhile to offer both Turner and Spiller for Mathews, in some combination? I like having three “decent” RBs, so McCoy, Spiller, and Turner do that for me now. But is the potential for Mathews good enough that I should offer both of them for Mathews? I really think that he’d take it to boost his RB depth. And potentially Spiller and Turner could both be as good as Mathews. If Mathews is that good, I’m thinking of offering Spiller, Turner, and Britt for Mathews, Fitzgerald, and Roberts. Mathews has to be trying his patience, and the same with Fitzgerald and the poor Arizona run game that lets defenses concentrate on Fitz. Trades have to be “even numbers” in this league, so if I add a player to balance things out, he needs to add one too. That’s why the Britt and Roberts instead of a straight Spiller/Turner for Mathews/Fitz. But maybe that’s simpler… Week 7 could be a problem with both McCoy and Mathews off, but it could be smooth sailing after that. Thoughts or suggestions? Thanks again Jeff! This is a 12-team PPR redraft league. Start 1 QB, 2-3 RB, 3-4 WR, (7 total RB/WR/TE, I usually try to go 3-3-1), 1-2 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF. 20 player roster.

  14. Hi Jeff, I’m 2-3, and have received a counter offer of McCoy, Welker, and Davis for Bradshaw, Fjax, Lloyd, and Witten. I really like it, in that I get a stud RB in McCoy, and if Welker keeps it up after Hernandez returns, another stud WR in Welker. I also feel like I’m selling Bradshaw at the height of his value, but who knows? I hate to lose Witten, so that’s the drawback. That was his counter offer to add his Davis for my Witten. I guess I could counter with Davis AND Pitta for Witten, along with the rest, but I guess I feel like the good outweighs the bad and I’d hate to lose out on this by haggling over Pitta. Thoughts or suggestions? Thanks again Jeff! This is a 12-team PPR redraft league. Start 1 QB, 2-3 RB, 3-4 WR, (7 total RB/WR/TE, I usually try to go 3-3-1), 1-2 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF. 20 player roster.

  15. Hi again Jeff, I’m 2-2, and have been offered a trade by an owner with RB needs. He’s also 2-2, and has offered Reggie Wayne for Ryan Mathews. When I first read the offer on my phone, I thought he was offering Wayne for Ryan Williams. With my week 7 bye concerns at RB, I was thinking that Wayne for Williams was a really fair offer, but I still wasn’t sure if it would fit well for me. Now that I’ve realized he wants Ryan Mathews, I’m positive I don’t want to do that one, but if I could come up with a counter offer, I always like to have options. I play him week 6. During week 7, I have RBs Mathews, Charles, and Jacquiz all off, leaving me with just Stewart and Williams. If I traded Williams for Wayne, I’d have to pick up an RB off the WW, and for that one week 7 I wouldn’t mind giving that a shot. I play our weakest owner that week, so would hope to get a win, but one never knows how the fantasy games will shake out. He’s very strong at WR, with Wayne, Andre, Bowe, and Britt. At RB I really only have Charles and Mathews, backed up just barely by Williams, Rodgers, and Stewart, so I’m not dying to give up an RB. I keep hoping that one of my WRs, maybe Simpson, will take off, since Hankerson and LaFell are not startable at all. So what do you think of his Wayne for my Williams? I have no idea if he’d take it, but it is an option, so I thought I’d get your valued opinion. Thanks again Jeff! This is a 12-team NON-PPR redraft league. Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 WR/RB Flex, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF. 16 player roster. Pass TDs = 4 pts, all others 6. 1 for 10 yards rushing or receiving, 25 yards passing.
