  1. @Joe Bryant Agree with Spike! VBD Spreadsheet is where I start my preparation! Please reconsider, if it has been retired. RR
  2. Is this the end of the line for the VBD Spreadsheet? Don't see it under Tools anymore. RR
  3. I just wanted to see if/when the Bye Weeks will be updated for Pittsburgh players and Tennessee players in the Classic Lineup Dominator. Still showing Week 8 byes for both sets of players. RR
  4. In the most recent stats update, Sanders was dropped to RB12. (Probably due to vagueness of his "soft tissue injury".) If you feel he should go higher...and closer to his ADP, go into File > Setup > Projections > RB and give his stats a boost. RR
  5. Everything has worked in the VBD app (Excel Spreadsheet) up until the newest revision "G". When I click "Get Latest Projections, I get "Error Getting Projections - Unable to open https://dominators.footballguys.com/2020/projfordd.php. The hyperlink cannot be followed to the destination." Could you please verify that the link is accurate?

  7. Check in Settings > Projections > RB tab. Is he listed and does he have stats? This is what his stat line looks like based on my scoring. Williams Damien KC/12 180 774 1.7 7.0 44 330 0.0 2.3 1.9 0 0.00 0 0.00 208 In the Player Pool, he shows up as my RB22 (33 overall). RR
  8. I've had that issue sometimes when trying to get projections on an older version. For example when updating the "J" version now that the "M" version is out. I think it may be because the players have moved around on the position tabs. I just downloaded "M" and updated it with no errors. Then, I imported into "M" version of Classic DD also with no errors. If the issue is in Classic DD, verify all place kickers have a position of PK. If the issue is in the VBD spreadsheet, another thing to check is on the Input tab. Go to Column BV and look at the positions around place kickers near Bullock. Is one JK instead of PK? (For me, Randy Bullock is BW169.) Change any incorrect positions to PK. Hope that helps, RR
  9. I don't necessarily think that's way off. After the top 3, AFAIC the next 11 are essentially the same guy. In my scoring, QB#4: 271 points; QB #15: 261 points. (About .5 pt difference +/- per week over the season). Given that, VBD will push QB's down after the top 3 are drafted. If you really disagree, change the # of starting QB's in your league to 2.5 or 3.0 and that should prioritize QBs even more than what you are seeing. In my thinking, in a 12-team league, you could get two of the top 15 QBs back-to-back, even in later rounds and be fine, while scooping up other position players while other owners are grabbing QBs in early rounds. RR
  10. Download the VBD Excel App. Click each position tab at the bottom. If any notes exist in Notes1, delete them. Save sheet. In DD Classic, on the "File" menu, click Import. Select "VBD Excel Spreadsheet". Choose the spreadsheet you cleared the Notes1 from. Ensure that the "Import Player Notes" check box is selected. Click "Start Import". After the import finishes, check that Notes1 is cleared out and click "Get Latest Projections" if desired. RR
  11. I understand the concept of not putting all your eggs in one basket...smoothing out the peaks and valleys in projections by averaging. Which does and has worked for me in the past. But, it also smooths out some of the hunches too. I've won with Dodds 100% before. I've also taken a beating using only Dodd's projections. I find that I like a lot of Jason Wood's insights. He has good analysis and sometimes zigs when others zag. I don't want to smooth out all the players projections too much. Example: Player 1 Projections Expert 1: 230 pts. Expert 2: 175 pts Expert 3: 180 pts. Expert 4: 250 pts. Avg: 208.75 ----- Player 2 Projections Expert 1: 210 pts. Expert 2: 200 pts Expert 3: 210 pts. Expert 4: 215 pts. Avg: 208.75 If I strongly believe Expert 1 and 4's projections, I should go with Player 1. (240 pts is the average of MYTWO experts' projections, even though the four-expert panel's average of both players is the same across both players) Even though Player 2 is the "safer" pick...more consistent according to all four experts. Player 1 is the guy I want. Because he aligns more favorably with my two guys' projections. Just looking at the average of the 4 experts, you might think that both players are identical and you could select either one interchangeably. I think this shows that a composite isn't always best. So, I will likely use a mixture of the two. (Dodds and Wood) RR
  12. Have I made up my mind? Not completely. But, until there's an option to input my leagues actual drafts from years' past, I think you have to take the good from each product...and the Classic DD still has value! As always, I will purchase the app and decide which to use as I go. As a two-man team on my main league, we can use both and still not run out of time on our pick. I like that the app now addresses the desktop/laptop crowd. I have a lot going on as Commissioner when I'm drafting and my iPad just doesn't cut it. RR
  13. Would love to see this discussed in April/May this year, not August! There are still a lot of very valid reasons to use Classic! I actually use both the app and Classic DD for prep. But, at the Draft, Classic DD still rules! The ability to plug in your own league's previous draft tendencies is invaluable! The mock draft capabilities of the app is invaluable too. I really think you need both! RR
  14. Hey Spike: Sorry...just saw your post. For what it's worth, with a 10-team Superflex league, 1B/1RB/2WR/1TE/2 non-QB flex/1 QB flex, I'm seeing 20 QB's in the first 60 picks based on our scoring system. Actually, I don't think that's too far off the mark. Last year's 6 would definitely not be close to what will happen in the draft. RR
  15. The projections are more up-to-date than what the spalsh screen says when DD is launched. Back around 8/5, Kevin White was around WR60. If you update proections today in DD, the screen still says current as of 8/5, but White has dropped to about WR115 in DD for my main league due to his injury. I know there have been posts about this previously, hoping that when new projections are loaded, DD would show the updated date, but it hasn't happened. It seems that the date is only updated when a new release is published. E --> F for example. The projections are updated more frequently than that. RR
  16. Hi bodotdot My main league has a similar QB scoring...4 points per passing TD and some yardage points, but devalued yardage compared to other positions. I also saw 4 QBs come off the board in the first 5 rounds in my mocks in DD. But, those 4 QBs were all +30 VBD or more. In the those same five rounds, there were 27 RBs, 26 WRs and 3 TEs taken. I just think that the top 5 QBs will go high regardless of how the QB scoring system is skewed against taking QBs early. The mainstream run on QBs in my mocks comes in Rounds 6 and 7. RR
  17. Not seeing that at all. Have you accidently changed the scoring for PPR or receiving yards? RR
  18. Have always wanted this info in Player Notes 3! I put it in manually now. RR
  19. My brother and I own a team together. He likes the traditional paper Draft Board, so I print out a VBD Board for him after we've customized it with our projection variants. He uses highlighters and marks up his board during the Draft. I prefer DD on my laptop, so I import from the VBD sheet into DD...keeping us mostly consistent...DD doesn't use Week 17 projections. My point is that you should familiarize yourself with both to determine what works best for you. I like PD, but it won't export to the VBD Spreadsheet, so I keep track of the customizations in a different (non Football Guy) spreadsheet. We mostly like the VBD projections, but there are usually 15-20 that we change per year. I've also customized our VBD to include Depth Chart & Injury info for RBs and WRs as well as "Tier" numbers. I import that info into DD as "Notes" so I don't have to scramble for that information during the Draft. Hope that helps, RR
  20. I still use it as my primary tool for projections and then import it ino DD. I also have customized it to include Depth Charts for RBs and WRs as well as Tiers for ranking purposes. I would like to see what you have done with it if you are interested in sharing a copy. If you want to use Drop Box or something similar, I could pick it up from there. RR
  21. You could setup a user-defined ADP based off of your previous years' drafts. I would think that would be even better than one just for ppr because it would take into account all of the nuances of your league. Link describes how to use ADP_User. http://forums.footballguys.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=249631&hl=adp_user&st=0 RR
