Having the fanciest, most advanced cheatsheet to use in your draft can be extremely handy but sometimes simplicity is what you are after. In those cases, having a nice printable one-sheet page with the most basic info should be all you’ll ever need on draft day.
Below you’ll find links to four variations of a simple PDF cheatsheet. Within the cheatsheet, you’ll see players broken down by position and ordered by their average draft position (ADP) at each site but they are then broken into tiers at that position based on where there are projected drops in value at that position. You’ll quickly get a glance at where the value lies at each position and who you might want to target before a tier is all used up.
You can also gauge each player’s value within that tier as I put each player’s projected WERTH value (based on my Special Blend projections) next to their name. These are new position-adjusted WERTH values which account for position scarcity with a value of zero representing a replacement level player at that position and anything below zero representing a projected bench player or a starter who will deliver negative value. You may notice that a player who is eligible at multiple positions may have very different values at each position as a result of the position adjustment.

How To Use
You have a few ways to utilize these cheatsheets during your draft. Of course, you could print these out and cross off names with a pen or pencil during the draft but that may be too old school for you. If so, you can always use a PDF editor to cross off names as they get drafted during your draft.
To accomplish this, I recommend using PDF-XChange Viewer which is a free alternative to Adobe Acrobat (which you could also use). If you do, you can use the Cross Out Text tool under Comment & Markup Tools. It’s a nice way to still have your computer in front of you (and hide your cheatsheet) but keep up to date about who is available at each position.
Oh, and if you’re looking for something a bit more adventurous, you still could always download my massively customizable Excel cheatsheets.
