2018 Draft Dashboard

System Requirements: In order for the tool to function properly, it needs to be run on Microsoft Excel 2010 or newer on a PC or Mac.

Please note that all sales are final and refunds will not be granted. The Dashboard was designed for 2018 drafts and will not be updated after September 6th of 2018. 

The 2018 Draft Dashboard is a fully customizable, Excel-based fantasy drafting solution. Utilizing a streamlined interface, the Dashboard provides you with all pertinent data needed to make efficient, effective, and confident decisions. The tool capitalizes on a number of drafting concepts, such as positional scarcity and tier-based player evaluation, to provide you with a personalized drafting experience, updating analysis with every pick. The 2018 release features full-fledged mock drafts in which the computer will determine the players drafted by opposing teams.

Your League, Your Draft

The Dashboard accommodates leagues consisting of 7 – 16 teams, snake/NFL style drafts and supports traded picks and keepers. ADP data from a variety of sources are included as well as RotoViz player tiers, which can be modified to your preferences. ADP and Tier data will be updated routinely as the season approaches. Users have the ability to include additional metrics, allowing you to track the number of shares you have in a player, include personal rankings, custom player grades, etc. The possibilities are endless!

Stay Ahead of the Competition

The Dashboard evolves as the draft progresses, allowing you to constantly monitor the ebb and flow of the draft. You can seamlessly toggle available players by position, determine the number of players available within each tier, and remain aware of the construction of your opponents’ rosters, letting you anticipate their next move. The Dashboard provides a list of “Panic Picks” that you can fall back on in the event you’re caught off-guard during your draft. Team specific needs are identified and a scarcity analysis updates with every pick. All of this information is readily available and can be digested in seconds. Input of drafted players is a breeze with our updated ‘Name Search’ function and improved ‘Draft Button.’
