I could work on adding software features forever. There are always more fun and useful things to add.
However, I need to balance that with getting something shipped. I want to get people using something so that I can get feedback on what comes next.
First off, I'd like to remind myself of what I've done so far. I tend not to celebrate my progress, so I want to point out what I've been able to get done in the nine days since I announced the project.
Wow, great job, me!
Now it's time to sort through what's left of the feature list. Here's my basic idea:
So, I noticed that I feel like there are two levels of "essential," so I divided them into a version 1.0 and 1.1. (Those may not end up as the actual version identifiers.)
Okay, back to work! I think I can get the Standings View finished and at least make some progress on the Dashboard View.
If you're still tracking your draft with a custom spreadsheet or even just pen and paper, you need to try DraftKick.
It is packed with features to help you succeed on draft day:
It's completely free to try out!
I'm Mays. I've been playing fantasy since I was in high school (over two decades ago).
My speciality has always been player valuation—converting player stats into rankings and salary values. VBD for fantasy football? Rotisserie z-scores? We go way back. In 2009, I started Last Player Picked, a site that generated fantasy values customized for your league.
These days, I'm building DraftKick and Projectile, a fantasy baseball site with in-season projection visualizations.
