FOA fantasy projection questions

i am contemplating purchasing the 2009 FOA and had a couple of questions about the fantasy projections.

1. after i purchase the 2009 FOA, would i be able to customize the listings to take into account my leagues scoring system?

2. if that is not possible, what scoring system are the rankings in the FOA based on?

3. do the projections in the FOA take into account any of the KUBIAK updates that have occurred since the first publish date (of the FOA), or are those projections still the originals?

thanks in advance for your responses.

on a side note, thanks to football outsiders for all their hard work and for publishing some great, unique, content on football, i appreciate it.

It sounds like what you actually want is the KUBIAK projections, not the Almanac. (I would advise getting both, though.) KUBIAK is completely customizable for your league settings and it is updated frequently up until the season starts.

thank you for the response.

i'd rather purchase the actual almanac to read, and if i can get away with it, just use the fantasy projections contained within for my draft. the questions above are so i can determine the 'if i can get away with it' part...i'm sure the kubiak is far more in depth data, and fascinating, i'm just not sure i need it.

looking forward to some reading either way though...

and my questions are still in play if anyone can answer them.

thanks again for any responses.

The FOA rankings are for a 12-team league that starts 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 FLEX (RB/WR), 1 TE, 1 K, and 1 DEF. Scoring is 1/10yds & 6/td for rush & rec, 1/20yds & 4/td for passing, -2/TO, no PPR.

It's not customizable, but they do include projected stats so if you get the pdf you could copy it all into a spreadsheet and recalculate projected scoring for your league's rules.

The projections are still the originals - they don't include any of the KUBIAK updates.
