What is the Cheat Sheet Creator?
The Cheat Sheet Creator is the easiest way to create a cheat sheet for your draft. You can instantly import any rankings from the web or from a spreadsheet on your computer. You can also combine multiple expert cheat sheets into one consensus cheat sheet. You’ll be able to customize the rankings through a simple drag-and-drop interface, create player tiers with the click of a button, and import and edit player notes.
Yes, the Cheat Sheets you create will automatically be available for use within our Draft Assistant and Draft Simulator apps. This will allow you to integrate your cheat sheets into your real and mock drafts for advice tailored to your draft goals.
Where do I find the app?
Open your CBSSports.com league, click on "Tools" in the menu, then select the app under "MY APPS".
If you have purchased more than 5 apps, you might have to click on the 3 dots below "RECOMMENDED APPS" to display the app.
Are auction drafts supported?
The Cheat Sheet Creator is designed for use with snake drafts. It will not work with auction drafts at this time.
What is FantasyPros ECR™?
ECR™ stands for "Expert Consensus Ranking" and represents the collective opinion of all the experts tracked by FantasyPros. We generate a single consensus cheat sheet by calculating how many “Rank Points” each player receives based on his ranked position on each expert’s cheat sheet. Each ranked position is worth certain number of Rank Points – the better the rank, the higher the Rank Points. We add these Rank Points up for each player across all experts to determine the player’s consensus rank. We don’t use an “average rank” because we believe this approach is flawed. Using an average requires that you assign an arbitrary rank for unranked players, which skews the results.
How do I edit the player rankings?
Simply click on “Edit Rankings” from the Cheat Sheet Creator. You’ll see a screen that allows you to drag-and-drop players to move them into new rank slots. Once you’re satisfied with your new rankings, simply save your cheat sheet to store the new rankings.
How do I keep Position and Overall ranks in synch?
When cheat sheets are edited, we use Sync logic that automatically keeps your Overall rankings (mixed positions) in Sync with your Positional Rankings. We’ll take your most recently saved rankings as our guide to keep things logical between rankings. So, there’s no need to duplicate your drag-and-drop between the rankings. Just decide which set of rankings you want to edit and the other set will be revised automatically to reflect your changes.
What are Tiers and how do I create them?
Tiers are a great way to organize your cheat sheet into groups of players of similar value. If you have a tier with five players, you’re essentially saying that you don’t have a strong preference between the five players in the group. During your draft, if all your players are still available in the tier, you may opt to hold off on drafting one of them since you’re likely to still have one or more of the players available on your next turn. To create Tiers, simply click on “Edit Rankings” from the Cheat Sheet Creator. When you mouse over rankings, you’ll see a link appear between rows called “create a tier” – simply click on this link to create a tier. You’ll also be able to drag-and-drop the tier or delete it once it’s created.
What are Targets and how do I set them?
Targets are a convenient way to highlight your favorite players. Whether they’re your super secret sleepers, top value picks, or the studs you just can’t live without, we make it easy to keep track of them in your cheat sheets and during your drafts. To target a player, simply click on “Target” next to the player’s name in the Cheat Sheet Creator. The box will turn yellow and that player will be noted as targeted on all your saved cheat sheets. You can easily remove the Target label by clicking on it again. During your mock drafts and real drafts, your targeted players will be highlighted in yellow on your cheat sheets. You can easily turn the highlighting on or off through the checkbox option at the top of your cheat sheet.
How do I add and edit Notes?
You can import player notes from our expert database through the drop down option in the Cheat Sheet Creator. You can write your own notes or edit the expert notes by clicking on “Edit Rankings” and then placing your curser into the note field that you want to add or edit. You’ll be able to view your player notes during simulations and drafts by hovering your curser over the player’s name in your cheat sheet or player’s photo in the player queue.
