Hi.  When will Draft Analyzer be available for the 2019-20 NFL season? 
I used the DA to do several "mock" drafts in 2018 and it was great!
I truly appreciate all your hard work and this software!

Love to hear that Mike!  We are waiting on at least one or two of our projection partners to publish their early projections.  I don't have an exact date yet, and we always wish it would happen earlier.  I will reply to this post when we get closer to a launch timeframe for 2019.  Last year we launched the projections around the NFL Draft in late April, but hopefully we can do it much earlier this year.

I tried to use the Draft Analyzer but am unable to sync my league. It's my first year with 4F4 so I'm not sure if I am not doing it correctly or if the DA isn't available yet (though it seems the projections are). Is the 2019 DA available?

I think that it may be more than that. What I have seen is that when I first open DA and  turn on Draft Sync it pulls down the correct info. However, if I leave DA open and running, even if a pick is made within a few minutes it does not update and show that pick (auto update is turned on). I have had DA running and numerous picks over the course of a couple of hours have been made but none of them sync.

Before I wrote the above I opened a new tab in my browser and loaded DA and went to my league. I turned on Draft Sync and auto update and it didn't pull down any of the picks that have been made since I last had DA open earlier today (about 1.5 rounds worth of picks). I think this may be because I previously had an instance of DA running in this browser earlier today and closed the tab without closing the browser. I have noticed this before where I have to fully close the browser (not just the tab) or DA won't pull down the picks since the last time DA was open.

*Edit* I was on the clock and opened both Firefox and Chrome and opened DA in both. I turned on Draft Sync and Auto Update and then made my pick in the BB10 league. I waited 10 minutes and the pick was not updated in DA in either browser. The "last synced" time continued to show the time from when I first launched DA. I turned Draft Sync off, then turned it back on. After turning it on it shows "Draft Sync Started" but it never completes and continues to show that message without updating  either the last synced time or the last pick (in both browsers).

So there seems to be an issue with pulling down picks/syncing after the initial sync.

Ok. Thank you for the detail.  I think I understand what you are saying and experiencing.  I will sync with the latest draft picks and then leave the DA open for several hours to see if it continues to sync properly (sounds like it hasn't on your end).  I will keep tabs on their API feed to see as draft picks are made in their system and compare that with the open DA.  Sounds like the sync button may stop at some point with no warning/info.

I will keep digging into this and hope to have it resolved before the weekend.  I appreciate your posts and patience.  Thank you.

Fixed!  Your description was accurate with subsequent draft syncs not loading recent picks.  Clear your browsers cache to get the latest app files and you should be good to go.  Thank you for letting us know and for your patience.
