The 2019 Big Board is here! This is the definitive program for creating fully customizable player ranks/values and managing a draft board. Whether you like z-scores, standings gained points, regular points, or you don't even know what those things are, this tool will save you a ton of work and help you to win your fantasy baseball league. Stop relying on the so-called "experts" for fantasy advice - become the expert yourself!
New this year - The ‘Update Data’ feature (Windows version only) now allows you to directly pull in updated projections. Past users of the Board will understand this is a huge upgrade and should greatly reduce the # of times you have to re-download the Board!
After using these player value calculation methods for years to dominate my competitors in fantasy baseball, I decided to make my sheets into something that a much wider audience would find useful. I've personally put a ton of elbow grease into building this sheet from the ground up to be compatible with (nearly) every type of popular season-long fantasy baseball league out there. On the strength of the Big Board, I've worked my way up to two championship titles in the top division of the "Sultans of Stats" and will be playing my fourth straight year in the top division this year.
Whether you're playing for bragging rights, or planning to up your game and win some money from your unsuspecting leaguemates this year, go ahead and hit the "Download!" button. It’s just ten bucks, more than worth it even if you aren’t in a money league, because who likes drafting crappy teams and losing? You'll immediately receive a unique download link for the current version of the Board, as well as access to the Google Drive where I'll be posting updated versions of the Board throughout the preseason.
So what are you waiting for? Get the Big Board!
Past users of the Big Board had this to say:
"All I can think of is waiting to get the big board. It's so clear you put a ton of work into it and I couldn't manage my auction draft without it[...] Can't wait for this year's to come out!"
"I won my league for the first time last year, and I am chalking that up to the BIG BOARD!"
"I used your tool last year and ended up setting the record for most roto points in a season - and our league goes back to 1983! Looking forward to your master spreadsheet again."
