Update:  Never mind.  I realized that the DD online uses a blend of rankings from dodds, Henry, Tremblay,  etc... whereas the DD Classic and MyFBG projections are using only one author's rankings.  I think I'll go with the DD online  as I like the blend of rankings.

The DD Mobile and DD Online use a different algorithm than DD Classic. That's the first thing that will make rankings differ. You can have a blend of weighted projections in DD Classic also, you just need to adjust projection weights in Projection Dominator Classic first, then import that file into DD Classic. There will still be the algorithmic discrepancy between new and classic though.

I used the online DD for the first time this year and came away pretty impressed.  I was a staunch Classic DD up until yesterday.  Thanks for responding!

Hi Simon,

The DD Classic keeps generating an error when trying to import the VBD excel spreadsheet.  Even an unmodified download of the VBD sheet.

The error message is "Error Reading Excel File - Error in loading DLL" when you hit Okay it follows up with "Error Reading the VBD Excel Spreadsheet, Close the Spreadsheet if Open, and Try Again"

Thoughts?

DD ONline just sucks.

It keeps bringing up last years teams and there is no possible way to clear the teams. I've tried starting 6 new drafts and it always defaults to last years teams with no link to clear them.

Screw this, I'm so effing pissed

Please email me shepherd@footballguys.com . This is the wrong forum for the DD Online and we don't do support for this stuff on the forums. But I'll get you the help you need over email. I suspect you just need to use draft.footballguys.com instead of draftdominator.footballguys.com

The DD Classic is not something I can help with. Please try Bruce at henderson@ the footballguys domain.

I wish you would have waited for the one year anniversary before responding?  51 weeks just doesn't hold the same significance.

Does anyone know how the rankings are compiled i.e. who contributes to the various sources for draft below? (Dodds, etc.)

- Draft Dominator online

- Draft Dominator mobile

- Draft Dominator classic https://subscribers.footballguys.com/apps/article.php?article=2019-draft-dominator-classic-mac

- Value Based Drafting VBD https://subscribers.footballguys.com/apps/article.php?article=2019-vbd-excel-app

- Cheatsheets https://subscribers.footballguys.com/2019/cheatsheets.php

 

I'm very old school so I enjoy printing but I noticed that the rankings are much different amongst each other. Thanks!

Just Downloaded and setup DD Classic - it won't let me expand the Player Pool Data inside the Data Pool Window - I can expand the Window but the data still stays in the same place - I miss the ADP Columns, Age, Exp - and both notes - I have to scroll over to see these columns

 

ETA - same thing in Player Pool- Weekly Points - I like looking at last  weeks for playoff points if it's a close call between players

 

I have 29" Monitor - I'd like to use the full screen real estate properly

I don't have that problem.  Go to the header row and you should be able to expand the columns just like you would in EXCEL.

I've been playing with the DD this year, doing some solo-mocks, working out some strategies (much faster than joining live mock after mock to test out a 7 round or 5 round idea) - it's a fun toy. But it seems like sometime earlier this week the ADP went a little wonky. 

Miles Sanders started falling to the late 2nd and if I ignored him, a mid-3rd. A lot of the ADP seems off now. Sanders is 23 on FBG Draft Dominator, but 1.12 on FF Calculator & no lower than 14 on other sites (CBS, Yahoo). There's quite a bit of variance. 

I realize rankings for various sites aren't going to align, but ADP is ADP,  so I figured they'd be at least close. Live mocks, Sanders is going 2.01 - 2.05 consistently, with a high of 1.11-ish. 

Not sure if I'm missing something in the settings? 

Any suggestions?  I was actually considering using it while doing a live/online draft as a reference tool, but if the ADP is inaccurate it isn't much help and might even hurt.

What ADP list are you using in the SETUP tab? 

I have all the teams in my league set to EXPERT and I'm seeing Sanders at 2.03.

I have them all set to expert too. 

I’ll check setup - didn’t think I’d changed anything. 🤔

Is there a way to get the expanded draft board in the DD online to show the keepers selected? I love using it for a visual of positions that's easier to see because big colored squares are great and shows # roster spots more intuitively, but it only seems to show actually auctioned off players, not any of the pre-set keepers.

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.

Aha - that explains it.

i understand why you’d drop him in rankings, but ranking =/= ADP

ADP = ADP. Sanders current ADP is 2.01

shouldn't that remain constant?  Or is that how the AI is “tricked” into downgrading him? 

i expect him to be gone inside the first 16 picks regardless, so it’s moot for me at the 1.03 draft slot, but it seems worth pointing out. 

i appreciate the explanation.

If this is the wrong place for this, please point me in the correct direction.

Using the Draft Dominator on my laptop, the classic version downloaded onto it.

So, now instead of it opening and the various windows in it, it just opens a bunch of windows.  Why?
Printing cheatsheets, there used to be a button to toggle to black and white.  Is that no longer a thing?
I'm sure I will find more to frustrate me.

It's these little things that frustrate us old guys.  Or have I possibly downloaded the wrong thing.

Sounds like you downloaded the wrong program.

 

Go here and download the App at the very top, not the one that's listed 3rd.

I’ve used DD classic in the past and just redownloded it from the link above. Is there any way to save my settings from year to year? Or do you have to start over?

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.

The MyLeague.ddf file contains all your league settings. Grab the one from the previous year from the DraftDominator directory and drop it into the same folder for the new install.
