  1. I also wonder if they have an algorithm of the long time ST subscribers who regularly call in. If they give me ST MAX for free and I don't call in to negotiate that amount, it's a win for them. They don't need to spend that money on customer service. Though we all know by how much their customer service sux that that they don't spend money on it... If you are considering using the APP, also consider how you are going to watch it. Casting from your phone to your TV likely isn't going to give you the same 1080P or 4K picture you get through the dish.
  2. DD takes into account SoS and any setting you might have in Game-by-Game. Those are typically the biggest reasons for differences.
  3. Check your Game-by-Game to see how that is setup for weeks 17/18. Mine is set to only 16 games and McCaffery has 389 points (0.5 PPR)
  4. I was able to download it from here from the tools page. I noticed my virus software gave an option to perform the update, so check that. Also, I'm usually behind a firewall at work, I suspend that to download from FB guys.
  5. I do the same thing every year. Start with by initial file from Last year, rename to this year, go into Setup and change the franchise order to match the draft order and I'm ready to roll.
  6. just one more reason I love this thread...I'm always learning something new. I was literally telling my wife last week that it time to ditch the AT&T land line and internet and try the T-Mobile internet.
  7. Sounds like you downloaded the wrong program. Go here and download the App at the very top, not the one that's listed 3rd. Classic Version for Windows
  8. SteelerFan1 - this thread covers the Classic Applications using the EXCEL based data. It's what us old timers use. In DD Classic, you can customize in different ways with historical draft data. For the DD tablet APP, you'll need to go here: https://sportsguys.zendesk.com Good luck.
  9. THIS is the way to do it - with one difference. Called the 1-888-777-2454, said 'Cancel service at the prompt and asked to be transferred to customer loyalty. the lady in Alabama, "Donna" said she was in the loyalty department. I told her that I got my last bill, it was very high (ST, Choice, regional sports and 4 receivers, HD, DVR, so on) and was there anything she could do about it. She was able to get me $60 off per month immediately, which she noted would offset the cost of ST. Was I happy? Ehhh.... I mentioned that a couple of friends (you are all friends, right?) had gotten Sunday Ticket Max for Free, what can she do. She says, "Let me try something." Takes ST off of my account, and then puts it back on with the offer of FREE Sunday Ticket Max. "But it won't auto-renew - am I OK with that?" So the order was: Get the discount first; take the ST off of your account; then put the ST on your account. Savings - $1120. 15 minutes, including 5 minutes of wait time to be connected. She said to be certain to call back next Labor Day.
  10. Johnny Rock - replying here do that others can see. I continually reviewed my drafts over the years - looking at what worked, where I got burned and what works well. I've tweaked my procedures and come up with a number of resources over the years to help with my process. The key for me is creating a customer ADP based on the past three years drafts - I can import it into DD AND (very important) I use it to calculate my own baselines. I use an EXCEL file called Draft_log that someone posted years ago. I have data in that thing going back 10+ years. It captures your draft, provides the order of picks, how many of each position are chosen each round and an accumulation by each round. I import the previous years draft data into the DraftLog and get the accumulated totals and output of the draft in a column (RB, RB, RB, WR, RB, WR,...and so on.) I have another program someone came up with about 6 years ago called the Planarizer. I take 3 years worth of the draft order (RB, RB,...etc), put it in there and it spits out an ‘Average ADP”. the last8 picks get a little wonky because it's so random by then. I take that output and put it back into the Draftlog and it shows the accumulation by round. For my 12 round league I use the 7th round for Baselines for this year (8th in my 10 team league). I then compare it against the baselines I used for the previous years to see how it compares. For the end of the draft I adjust the baseline a little bit to ensure the total RB's. WR's, TE's, QB,s DE' and PK's are consistent against last 3 years. The order isn't as important as the totals. I jot those down. After I reach the 7th round in my draft I adjust the baselines in DD to match those of the final draft numbers. From that tweak to the final total baselines, now have a custom ADP and I also save that as ADP_User.csv for DD. It seems like a little work, but it's pretty straightforward if you have familiarity with EXCEL. Make sure if you are using Projections Dominator and/or ADP_USER that you follow this order: Import any notes from the VBD App. Insert Baselines into DD. Update Projections in DD. Update Projections in PD. I personally use 30% Dodds, 30% Henry, 20% Tremblay and 20% Wood. Import PD into DD. Import ADP_USER. (Ensure ‘Draft Others by ADP’ is checked if you’re using ADP_USER and that it’s off if you are not.) Modify and Projections you make to move someone up or down. Here are a couple of other things I do. Export the playerpool with notes into EXCEL and highlight specific players I want to grab or avoid and print that out. Having all of the players on a cheatsheet allows me to see the bigger picture. I try to align it with the ADP file from DD to identify opportunities. For example James Conner is currently ranked 21 in my sheet (RB16) but it looks like he's going about #33 in MFL. I I might be able to grab him late in the 3rd, rather then end of the 2nd. Finally I also print out the DD Cheat sheets that shows all of the players in tiers. This is key for using the best value pick window. With your ADP_USER file the BVP window will show the number of picks until your next pick. You can look at the DVBD, compare it to your tiers and decide if that's the pick you really want to make - especially if you have similar values. Most of the files I referenced can be found here: https://sites.google.com/site/gobears84fbg/home Good luck. PM me if you have other questions.
