Draft Dominator - NOW RELEASED!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I've spent some more time digging into the new DD and I've been able to find a lot of things that were offered in DD Classic, but not quite everything. I do really like that you can adjust the VBD baselines in the new DD just like you could in the DD Classic. I also love the wealth of information that is available for each player simply by clicking on them. It is a very robust program indeed.

Here's what seems to be missing to me in the new DD (or that I haven't been able to find/figure out)...

1. The Team Strengths window in the DD Classic is one of the features that I use the most. I don't see anything like that at all in the new version. Being able to compare team strengths and weakness (both overall and by position) really helps pre-draft (in keeper/dynasty leagues), during the draft (in all types), and post-draft (in matching up areas of team rosters for trades). This is the thing that I am missing the most.

2. On the rosters column in the new DD (in the middle right of the screen), it would be really helpful to me to be able to have the projected season points for each player on your team instead of just the points per game. Maybe an option to toggle back and forth between the two would be good. I know it's listed in the cheat sheet area prior to the player being drafted and then after they've been drafted, it's available if you click on the player, but if FPts (and maybe even upside) were listed there in the rosters area, it would save having to go through and click on each player and try to remember the numbers while comparing them. Actually, a toggle with all three ( points per game, projected points, and upside points) would be REALLY nice.

3. Another thing that I would like to see in the rosters space is the ability have all of the players listed together by position instead of all the starters and then all of the bench players. It makes it easier to compare within the position. Also, you can see just how much stronger your starter is than the #2 guy on your roster. A toggle between "listed by position" and "listed by starters" would be nice as well.

4. I still cannot get my Zealots IDP dynasty leagues to import the current roster. When I open a mock draft, the roster shows up completely blank. All of my other leagues had no problem, although I did have to change the lineup settings from 0 to 1 for QB and K to include them in the roster list in the 32-team league that uses TMQB and TM K. I spent the better part of an afternoon manually entering in all 720 players (12 teams times 60 players each) as keepers into a mock draft to make it work... however...

Prior to opening up the new DD, I had added a new 2019 version of each of my leagues in the My FBG page. When I couldn't get the rosters to import into the new DD, I went back to My FBG, updated the 2018 versions of each league to the 2019 version, and deleted the "new" versions that I had created listed below so that there was only one version of each league. Then I went back to the new DD and my rosters were blank again. So all of that time that I spent manually entering the rosters was wasted. Frustrating, to say the least!

I'd really rather not have to manually re-enter the rosters each time I do a new mock, especially since I am in five Zealots leagues (720 players times 5 leagues = 3600 players... yikes!). So, as of right now, the new DD is unusable for me in these leagues. Not a massively huge thing, I still have my Excel spreadsheets (partially based off of the FBG redraft and dynasty rankings) that I use for comparative purposes, but it would still be nice to figure this issue out in order to be able to have access to the most current info for each player, which is a big strength of the new DD!

5. I kind of miss the Best Value screen, but I understand that the program is doing a lot of the heavy lifting from this behind the scenes, so to speak. So that's not that big a deal.

6. I find that the Team Stats screen is actually helpful to me during my two online live drafts (through Yahoo). When you only have 90 seconds to make your pick, it's nice to be able to glance at that screen and see "Has Team So-and-So taken their second QB yet?" or "Team Whatchamacallit only has 1 RB and has 4 WR, so there's a good chance he won't take a WR and will probably go with a RB.", etc. This is also nice in my two actual live in-person drafts when our time limits are a little more relaxed, but you still don't want to take forever to make your pick.

I understand that you can't do the whole "separate windows" thing because the new DD is browser based, but it would be nice to see these things incorporated into the program, if possible. Thanks again for listening to my queries.

As always, I am all ears to hear what those things are and to add support to them into the new version.

Whatever those things are, let me know. I want to make sure the new app works for everyone. Because ultimately, I don't personally want our subscribers using an application that I know does not get them as good rankings as the new application does.

(aside: not mentioned in this thread, but custom projections and custom ADP are the two I'm aware of, and they are on the road map for 2020)

@Simon Shepherd

Any way that you can help with any of the things that I mentioned in the post above would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Thank you for the excellent feedback @Blue Thunder ! And thank you for your patience in waiting for my reply. This is the time of year when things start to get crazy!

That's exactly what we were looking for here. Let me go through these one by one. I will preface this by saying we are not at a point where we have resources to make changes this year. But just like last year, I will note the feedback and address it in the app for next year.

1. Team strengths window: you can currently see this info on the "By Pos" tab for each individual roster. In a previous version, the roster comparison chart gave the number of players at each position on each roster (as it does now) in addition to that % rating. The feedback I had was that people didn't understand what the % rating meant there. I can add it in a new tab so we have two tabs on that roster comparison screen - 1) Pos Rostered, 2) Pos Ratings.

2. No problem. We will add this.

3. Yep, can do.

4. This one sounds like a specific issue with your league.I need your FBG username to take a look and help there. You should not need to be entering 720 players individually. If you add 720 players manually to a league and then delete it, that will also delete those 720 manually entered players as they would have been associated with the league you deleted. What we need to do here is get the league setup correctly, and then you'll be good to go from there. No need to repeat anything twice let alone to repeat it every time you want to do a mock.

5. The two ways we reflect that in the new app is 1) on the draft board you can see the predicted picks between your current and next pick, and 2) with the "next pick drop offs" slider under rankings profile. I appreciate that's not exactly the same as it was before, and we are appreciative of your understanding that this is down to a different approach between the two apps.

6. Cool - that's the same screen I was referring to in my answer to 1). I'd propose adding a second there for positional ratings too.

Thanks @Simon Shepherd for the response and for the clear and helpful directions on how to find the things I was looking for. I appreciate your interest in my suggestions regarding the toggles/tabs and look forward to hopefully seeing them in next year's version.

Regarding the Zealots leagues (#4 above), I think that the issue might be the roster size. If I am interpreting things correctly, it looks like the maximum roster size allowed in the new DD is 50 and the roster size in the Zealots leagues I'm in is 51 during the season and up to 60 in the off-season. Is there a way to increase the maximum roster size beyond 50?

I look forward to being able to use both the new DD and the DD Classic versions together this year to hopefully, when the time comes, result in the perfect draft (several times over)!

Love the DD mobile 

Id love to see some videos of the app being used real-time in actual mock or real regular and auction drafts. The how to videos are great but I’d love to actually see someone using it as part of an actual draft.

That'd be interesting. I'm a visual learner as well so seeing it in action may be interesting.

I will be all over videos soon if you guys can put up with the british accent!

Briefly: for real drafts, if you're entering other people's picks using the cheat sheet, you're doing it wrong. Use the draft board down the left hand side of the screen instead.

Thanks @bagger ! Same question for you as for everyone else - what could we do to convince you to try out the new one? Or have you tried it out and preferred Classic? If so, what's missing or what draws you back to Classic? Thanks

Does the new version have compatibility with the projections dominator? That’s what keeps me using classic. I want to make my own projections and integrate that in.

No, but it will next year. It won't have projections dominator compatibility, but you'll be able to import CSV files of projections in.

Unfortunately for me, the overwhelming majority of my leagues are dynasty, and I don't add "normal" dynasties often anymore. The DD is of almost no use to me except for the one or two redrafts I'll do with local friends.

 

For those...it's phenomanal

All team information shows up under 'your leagues', 'details;', ;rosters and teams', but does not show up on the main screen. I've tried syncing multiple times, closing, reopening app, etc.

I'm using Chrome on a Macbook.

Also, the rookie draft was a snake draft, now we're moving to an auction draft. Does this have something to do with the issues? The auction has not started yet. 

Please let me know what other information you need, and thanks for your help!

I’d like to keep individual help issues to zendesk as we’re better equipped to get you help there - open a ticket at https://sportsguys.zendesk.com

theres a difference between rosters and keepers. For players to show at the start of the draft they must be imported as keepers and they must show on the edit keepers screen.

Yeah, the players are listed under teams, but not on the keepers list, even after syncing.

Hello Simon. First, I have not read through this entire thread but some things I don't see in the browser version that are in DD classic.

1. Auction values, amount paid and salary caps.

2. NFL team depth charts, showing players available.

3. Best value pick.

Also, I don't see the MFL import tool for DD classic.  Will that be available at some point?

Thank you for all of your hard work!

ETA: I see under "Past Tools" the MFL import tool is coming soon. :thumbup:

Hey @Amused to Death !

Auction values, amount paid and salary caps are on the teams listing. That's on the right hand column. If you're viewing a specific team, hit the Back button, or, make your browser wider and it will put both views side by side.

Depth charts are under the asterisk menu above the cheat sheet.

Best value pick is not a strategy that the new app uses. We think we have a much better system now. I did a video on this here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6tQV8oktdU

Can you and/or do you recommend adjusting or changing the weekly weights during an active draft?

 

awesome awesome videos by the way!!! Thanks

hey @BroncoFreak_2K3 ! Great question.

I can only think of two reasons why you'd want to do that.

  1. it's a best ball league and you notice from the rosters => by week view that you are particularly weak in one week. You may then want to increase weekly weights for that week as every point counts in best ball.
  2. it's not a best ball league, and you notice that you've stacked up a bunch of players who all have the same (first half of the season) bye week. In that case you might decide during the draft to "throw" that week, write it off as a loss, and adjust the weekly weights for it to 0. In leagues where rosters change frequently due to multiple WW claims and trades, it's probably not worth doing this as who knows what your roster's going to look like in the second half of the season.

Here's a link to the video playlist again, if anyone else is interested:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLoVQB_kbCO2V0KcyaDRa5jpfv4Fhsm0z_

I'm open to ideas for other videos too. I'd like to do a few with various staff members during live drafts showing how we use the app. Any other videos I do though will be sometime after mid July due to my schedule here.

A couple of suggestions that I would love to see.

1.  Game log info on the player info.  I like to see if a player played better in the 2nd half or how consistent their scoring was.  Did they rack up points vs. Weak opponents?  Those kind of things.

2.  Hyperlink to their FBG player page.  

Thanks for listening.

I am another long time classic user, but tried the new one with an open mind.  Once you start getting familiar with it, the new one is real nice.  I can not wait to really kick the tires on it and real time test in an actual draft.  I agree that the team strengths should be added, and Simon has already addressed that.

Great work guys, and thanks for including in the subscription cost!

I have noticed some sort of bug when using the online version of draft dominator. I am manually entering picks, and sometimes the picks are saved the next time I go to the the draft, and other times they are not. It is not erased, because I can open it at a later time and then the picks will be back. I triple checked that I am in the same draft when this happens. I am not sure why this happens, but it is not fixed by refreshing the browser window or anything.

This thread is not for DD Classic. There's a separate forum for that.

Although MFL import is up and running for the new Draft Dominator, and mock drafts in the new Draft Dominator are currently loaded with ADP.

Two questions.

1. My auction league uses a nomination process where the person who landed the previous player nominates the next instead of a snake nomination process.  Is there a way to emulate this in the DD?

2. Can this be used offline?  IE: load the DD page up then go offline and continue to use it?  I dont notice the page ever refreshing but figure it might be connecting to something on the backend.

I tried the draft dominator a couple times this week. I was using the app while doing a mock draft on Yahoo.Because the time between picks is only

30 seconds, I was only to use it for 6 or 8 rounds. At that point people started drafting kickers and defenses and I got lost trying to input the other picks.

By the time it got back to me the picks were not up to date and I just used my rankings. Any suggestions as to how I can get more comfortable using the

draft dominator. I would really like to use for this year's drafts.

Hi Simon,

what is the reason for the VBD values to be fixed values . I know you can change them manually in the online draft dominator, but then its changes them for all leagues and it always resets to the fix values after restart. Shouldn't the DD be able to set lower baselines by itself for QBs in 2 QB leagues for example ?

 

Thx

QB rankings for 2QB leagues are way off on DD Classic. Has only 3 QB's in the top 40 picks using my 2QB league parameters.

I was going to comment on an opposite situation, where in a deep 11 position player lineup superflex league where position players all have premium points to bring them closer to QB levels, it kept trying to push Eli Manning on me for something like 7 rounds when I already had 3 QB (two top 10). Sorry DD, but John Brown or Chase Edmonds are way more likely to have circumstances where they are in my starting lineup than Eli Manning, who might not even be starting by bye weeks. I think it got high on its own VBD supply or something.

Anybody used this for bestball?  I ask, because I was in a bestball mock, and checked the BestBall/DraftMaster box in DD.  As the draft was nearing the end, I had one TE and no D/ST.  If I had followed the DD suggested picks, I would have ended up with 1 D/ST.  Why wouldn't it recognize it was a bestball league and I would have to have at least a backup D/ST or take a zero for a week?

I have an old I pad I've used before. It's iOS 10.3.3. Am I out of luck using DD on this thing? It said I needed a newer iOS.

maybe this isnt the best place, but cant find anything in help section

i've stumbled on a feature before but cannot find it again

there was something you could set like "wait for X number of players" at a position before selecting in the autodraft settings.  looking all over and damn if i cannot find it again!! 

anyone?

Two questions.

1. My auction league uses a nomination process where the person who landed the previous player nominates the next instead of a snake nomination process.  Is there a way to emulate this in the DD?

2. Can this be used offline?  IE: load the DD page up then go offline and continue to use it?  I dont notice the page ever refreshing but figure it might be connecting to something on the backend.  

@Simon Shepherd  I'm running into this more and more in my auction drafts too.  What are your suggestions to best handle this?  Thanks for your help as always

Is it possible to adjust ranking/priority of bench positions (i.e 2nd QB)? My DD mocks have teams taking their second QB much earlier than they actually will in my league. 

I know we can do Position Adjustments but my understanding is this applies to both starters and bench

Second this. I played around with the position adjustments, and it's a little better, but still off by seemingly quite a bit. If I'm waiting at QB, there's backups going in the early double digit rounds.

1 - this has never made sense to me - can someone explain how this works? doesn't that mean that theoretically when all the players left will go for $1 someone can just have a "run" and take all the best ones without anyone else having a say? The Draft Dominator can only do 1-12, 1-12 style auction nominations, so it won't help you track who's next to nominate, but since that's always the last team who won a bid, that's not a problem. And it should just let you enter the player nomination even if it has the nominating team wronng.

2) Yes but not on IE. That should work on Edge and will definitely work in non-incognito chrome. IE just doesn't have the bleeding edge tech to support that feature.
