Importing Projections

Projection Pal is a completely optional add-on for the Draft Buddy, but what it does is help import alternate projections, rankings, stats, notes or any player data you can find (on the Internet) that you want in the DB. The DB includes 3 sections for alternate projections, 3 custom fields for each position, and a section for user notes. You can use Pal to import data into any of these sections. Then within the DB you can take advantage of features to average projections, use cheatsheets with notes, include custom fields into the scoring, and more.

Proven Track Record

FFToday's player projection guru Mike Krueger has used the Draft Buddy to win many "Expert" leagues including the 2003 $5000 FF Champs Challenge. Also, Krueger is a 4-time champion of the Fantasy Shootout taking home titles in 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007. In an independent study done by Rotosource, FF Today's 2006 Stat Projections ranked 2nd for accuracy and finished 5th in the 2008 Accuracy Challenge run by the Fantasy Sports Trade Association.

DB creator Mike MacGregor earned his own impressive fantasy football track record over the years. He is the only three-time winner of the Dirty Dozen Experts League (2004, 2006 and 2009). He competed in the SOFA IDP Experts League from 2005-2008 and earned two #1 seeds, one #2 seed and a wild-card playoff berth in those years. In 2010, Mike took his first crack at the National Fantasy Football Championship (NFFC) and had the top regular season head-to-head record in his league.
