Keeping Track of Cheat Sheets

Postby IRON CHEF » Mon Jul 19, 2004 3:54 pm

Where do you guys keep your cheat sheets? Do you use a particular website, write them down, use a word document, or anything else?

I use an excel spreadsheet. I put each one of them in a different worksheet with a label on where I got them from.

That way I can move back and forth betwween them. I also put my final projections of the top 200 or so in a worksheet in the same file. I then use the fill button to color people in as they are picked. Makes it easier to track.

;-D
I have never made the mistake of trying to pick someone already picked since I started doing this 4 years ago. :-t
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

Ditto, I like the fill option of Excel, last year i even got to the point where i could fill picked players RED, and then a few players that i wanted to watch later in the draft, (personal sleepers i guess you could say) in a different color, and then players that i wanted to avoid in a different color.

worked great for me and plan on doing it again this year. Also i have found a nice program that allows me to do almost the same thing on my palm, for a live draft situation. I only have one. and don't have a laptop anymore.

i have a notebook where i keep mine.i do a different positoon for each page.IDP's,RB's and WR's fron and back,TE's and K's share a page,1 column each.i ran the players in the iven position,then if i wan to adjust them i put a player's new rank in paretheses.when i have a lot of changes made to a given position,i rip the page out,make a new page for that position with the changes made.so i always have my most updated rankings for each position in the notebook.then,when i have a real draft or mock draft,i put the rankings for all of the positions on a regular sized blank white sheet of paper,landscaped,not portrait.with the extra space on the back,i list my team's roster.as playrs are drafted,i put a dash next to their name and also spearate players into tiers by putting a line under the last player in a tier's name.works very good for me. ;-D

Okay I appreciate everyone's advice and have begun working on excel but I have never used it before and if anyone can give me info on how they arrange it, it would be greatly appreciated.

personally i like to compile a list somewhere round 50-60 players overall on my front sheet.

Then i add little tabs on the bottom. or extra sheets showing the different positions. So i can easily click each position and see who is next in line.

If you have an email address i could send you a copy of what i start out with.


I usually use this as a starting point and then move the players around accordingly.

I use an access database with linked tables for the different positions based on my fantasy point projections. I have seperate tables from each position, and a query that dumps all of them together for a massive dump of all of the current players. I have a few copies for each of the leagues I'm playing in, which I update after every pick. :)

Geeky, but it's hyper effective, and the database only took me about fifteen minutes to create. It also lets me dump lovely excel sheets with any data I want anytime I want. ;)
