Invite sent Nick.


What I've learned...

 

The key is to give MAX a couple of guys you like and let it do the rest. if it spits out a player you're not high on, blacklist him, remove the others (except for your picks) and try again.

Loving the product so far.

 

Would look to add - % of cap next to each player, avg $ remaining per player, FLEX tab on the left, columns for 300 yd passing/100 yd rush/rec games this year due to DK performance scoring, columns for fantasy pts allowed and rank by opponent.

 

I'll post more feedback as I use it more.

If anyone has issues retrieving it from Google Drive, please let me know. I prefer to control who can download it at this time during beta until the full release.

Have it installed and testing it.  Initial thoughts are wow, this is really easy to use right out of the box.  All of the regular games are present.  The only idea I think would be cool is if the Thanksgiving Thursday only lineups could be created without having to blacklist all of the non-Thursday players  I can see why this functionality isn't built in, since this is really isn't a situation that occurs often in the NFL schedule and I can't ever remember seeing a Thursday only game on DraftKings except for this week.

 

Another idea is it might be neat to blacklist NFL games for the week, thus it would be easier to filter out any players for that game.

 

I'm looking forward to creating some lineups and entering some games with them.  I'll be sure to post feedback.

 

Thanks again for the invite.  You guys have a great product here!

I have it installed and it works great.  I will continue to test it out over the holiday weekend.

 

One thing I noticed is a conflict with Alex Smith QB KC and Alex Smith TE CIN  They are both only able to be added as TE's.  I have seen this conflict before on other sites.  Not sure if it s a AskMax issue or FFtoolbox issue.

Hey thanks for catching that! Actually, I just added him as a QB, and the TE wouldn't allow me to add him as a TE. So if you want to use him, you might want to close it, reopen it and try adding him as your QB instead. 

Great catch!!

Yes as the description reads, this is a Windows test only, but I'm surprised it doesn't work on Surface. Thanks for the heads up!

It probably works for the surface pro because that has a different operating system than the surface RT.

This thing is awesome, best thing is put player you think has best matchup or best sleeper and it does the rest.  It does crash on me quite a bit when I put in custom projections.  The ability to put your projections in is awesome.  Not that FFtoolbox projections aren't good.  I like to use multipl projections.  This thing is definitely a winner. 

 

Thanks

Rick

New issue I found this morning.  I selected the Sunday (4PM) - Monday contests.  Some of the players listed are 1PM players such as NE/Hou - Also the DEN/KC players are not there.  I didn't look deeper to see what others might or might not be there.  I did run an update prior to this.
