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?

The 4for4 projections for 2019 are live along with ProFootballFocus and RotoWire. We are waiting on our other partners to get their first set of projections published.

What is happening with your league sync?  Which site and LeagueID on their site?  I can take a close look.

I'm trying to sync a BB10 league. After launching the Draft Analyzer, I go to "Add Your 2018 (?) Fantasy Football League"  and select "Import League Settings" and input my BB10 League ID. After clicking Add League it does not add the league.

Ok. I am going to sign up for a BB10 league (formerly MFL10) and test out the league import and draft sync.  Thank you for letting us know. Should be a simple fix and hope to have this wired up for 2019 late today/tomorrow.

I have reached out to Fanball to dive into this.  Has your league filled all the teams yet?  The API may not work until the league is officially created after all teams (12 of 12) have registered.  Still looking into this.

Yes, I just tried it on a BB10 league that is currently in the 16th round.

Fanball has made changes to their APIs for 2019 that we need to update.  The sync for BB10s should be live on Tuesday after the holiday weekend.  Hope that is okay.

Thank you,

Ted

League import for BestBall10 Leagues (formerly MFL10s; now run by Fanball) is now live for 2019.

To add a synced BestBall10 league from the Draft Analyzer Dashboard:
1) Select Import League Settings
2) Select BestBall10s from the drop down menu
3) You will be prompted to authorize the Draft Analyzer to sync with Fanball (Only required the first time)
3a) If you needed to authorize in step 3, the Dashboard page will refresh and you will have to select BestBall10 again from the drop down menu
4) Enter your BestBall10 league ID that is shown in the league name such as "Football10s - 2X #865" which is a league ID of 865.

Post any questions here or email us at support@draftanalyzer.com.

Thank you,

Ted

Thanks, I am now able to import my BB10 leagues. One issue I am having is that it is not syncing previous picks. I imported a league that is currently in the 14th round and it correctly imported all teams and team names, but it did not sync any picks so it is showing as Pick 1 Round 1 as being on the clock.

I do have "Draft Sync" set to "On" and have left the DA open while picks were being made and none of the current picks were synced either.

Draft Sync is now live for BB10 leagues for 2019.  It should be very smooth as you will have already authorized with Fanball during league import.

Thanks, can confirm it's working. I'm looking forward to seeing everything that DA can do.

Just an FYI, on the Draft Grid screen it shows two players that were drafted ( Parris Campbell and Marquise Brown) as "Unknown Player" while at the same time showing both of those players as available in the rankings list.

Cool. I just updated our player ID mapping and those two players are now included.  We get an email every time a player is not mapped during draft sync, so we know immediately.  Thanks for the heads up.

Clear your draft picks and re-sync the draft to get those two players mapped into your draft results.

I've tried the DA now with a couple of BB10 leagues and the auto update feature doesn't seem to be working. When first launched it will correctly pull down the draft picks that have been made, but turning on "Draft Sync" and "Auto update" doesn't actually show picks that have been made after launching the DA. Manually clicking "Refresh" also doesn't force DA to pull down picks that have been made since the last shown.

I just tried my BB10 league with the completed draft and the league settings imported and all draft picks imported.  What is the Draft Analyzer League ID you are seeing this issue with?  I can dive into this in detail and get it fixed today most likely.  Might be an issue with the Fanball User Token needing to be updated...just a guess though.

My league ID is 1074.

When I import that league (currently round 8), all league settings and picks import correctly. However, as additional picks are made they are not reflected in DA, that is the issue that I am having.

Thank you for the league ID. I looked into this and you are correct that the settings and draft picks are importing properly. No problem there.  For extended drafts, you have to manually turn on the Draft Sync every time you open the Draft Analyzer.  For normal drafts that last 2-3 hours, you just have to turn the draft sync on once as you keep the app open throughout the draft.  However, for extended drafts where you close and open the Draft Analyzer over the course of a few days, you have to manually turn the draft sync on each time.  Do you think that could be it?  Let me know if not.  The tech stuff seems to be working very well.  Hope this helps.

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.

I had an ESPN auction last night and used the Auction Analyzer for the first time. A couple of issues:

1. None of the picks showed up in the AA. I turned on autosync and manually refreshed the page. I was using Chrome (latest version) with the extension installed.
2. For the budget for each time it showed, "$101 of $100" left. The budget for each team is $200 so no idea what that was about.
