There’s a pretty good reason that this site is called Mr. Cheatsheet and that’s because I specialize in creating powerful, customizable and (most importantly) free Excel spreadsheets that you can use to dominate your fantasy baseball drafts. I am releasing the first version of the 2015 draft cheatsheets to the world today but there will be more updates to come over the weeks ahead.
The cheatsheets are interactive spreadsheets that are can be tuned to your personal league settings and preferences. You will be able to use these sheets to see how valuable each player is specifically for your league. The spreadsheets also update throughout the draft so you can easily know when you need to adapt your draft strategy based on how a draft is going. For the data nerds, you get a ton of available projections and draft data right at your fingertips in one easy place.
There are three types of cheatsheets. For rotisserie league owners, you can use the standard draft or the auction draft cheatsheet depending on your draft type. If you’re not in a roto league, there’s also a cheatsheet for point scoring leagues too.
To better understand all of the features of these special little cheatsheets, skim through this post here that explains each area of the spreadsheets.
Please note that these sheets are designed for Microsoft Excel and utilize macros which will make them unable to be used on Mac versions of Excel (it sucks, I know).
Once downloading the sheets, you’ll be prompted with two messages to enable content and then you’ll be able to use them fully after that. Once again, if you are a bit confused upon opening the cheatsheets, refer to the how-to post here.
Within this release, there are a number of data sources available for projections, rankings and average draft position. There will be many more sources of data coming in the releases between now and April and there will be updates to the current data as well.
Enjoy the cheatsheets and let me know if you have any issues so I can make sure to get them fixed before your draft rolls around!
