Is this software ever updated? I bought in and the analysis on Donovan McNabb is several weeks old? My draft is this Sunday. Is there something I need to do to update the information? I have a Mac so I am using the web version.

We do updates on projections and rankings everyday. The news feeds come from ESPn or CBS depending on the package you use. We have no control over when they get updated. The best we can do is Keep our rankings and projections as up to the minute as possible. We try our very best to get injured players and traded or signed players values adjusted accordingly and are usually re-evaluated in less than 24hrs. If you have any other questions please let us know.
Thanks,
Bob

I was hoping all player info was up to date.

This is the latest on ESPN's site:

McNabb won't be serving a second term in the nation's capital. Instead, the 34-year-old McNabb was traded to Minnesota, where he'll be the Week 1 starter and tutor rookie QB Christian Ponder. McNabb is almost certainly the league leader in footballs thrown at receivers' feet over the past few seasons, and away from the safety of Andy Reid's dink-and-dunk offense, he made awful decisions throwing the ball. Fortunately for the Vikings, new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave is a West Coast offense devotee, so we could see a more effective Donny Football return to the field. But we're not holding our breath. He'll be better than he was in Washington last year, but McNabb's glory days are gone.

Another example is Larry Fitzgerald. The info is out of date now that the Cards have Kevin Kolb.

ESPN:

You know it's bad when Cardinals fans find themselves pining for Matt Leinart. At the end of their first post-Kurt Warner training camp, Arizona suddenly cut ties with Leinart and ran with Derek Anderson as its starter, with predictably disastrous results. Nobody suffered more than Fitzgerald, who was coming off three consecutive top-six WR fantasy seasons, but tied a career low with just six TDs in '10 and set a career high in abject frustration. There's no question Fitz has skills, and, entering his age-28 season, he's in his prime. But if you ever needed a case study about what happens to a potential Hall of Fame receiver's fantasy value when his team decides to put the modern-day Marc Wilson under center (ask your parents), Fitzgerald is it. Now that Kevin Kolb is aboard in the desert, expect Fitz to go right back to elite status.

As I stated earlier. We have no control over the news that ESPN OR CBS posts OR, when they update it. All we can do is keep our rankings and projections as up to the minute as possible. The news sources of our packages are clearly stated in the package descriptions.
Sorry.

ESPN and CBS are both are up to date. The two examples above are from ESPN. Implying you cannot control what or when ESPN posts is not the point. ESPN, CBS, Yahoo, etc. are all constantly updated. I should have the most relevant information using your software on draft day. I regret this purchase and will not be using this software. "Sorry."

How about Willis McGahee, you show him as a free agent, but Denver signed him weeks ago.
