Just curious. How does the midseason update work? Does anyone have experience using prior versions?
I'm interested to know if KUBIAK has value as a tool for making trades midseason.

They usually release the "mid-season" update about four weeks or so into the season.
It is virtually identical to the pre-season KUBIAK in format. It just has revised projections based on what we know after the first few weeks of the season.
As far as using it as a trade tool, you can use it the same way you used the pre-season version: as a helpful tool but not the end-all/be-all decision-maker.
I should note that the midseason KUBIAK will be one week later this year due to Yom Kippur.
Also, the midseason KUBIAK does not include IDP projections.
Cool - thanks for the update about the update Aaron. So I guess it will be the week after Yom Kippur ie. updated sometime in first week of Oct?
Interesting, thanks for the comments.
Aaron, appreciate you being so helpful on these forums. Can I ask what sort of weighting KUBIAK assigns to first-4-weeks production vs. previous season production (which I believe is implied in the preseason projections, anyway)? Does KUBIAK assume that four regular season games is enough of a sample size to fully project across the next 16+ weeks?
ETA please kind sirs
Also curious ... will we see the update prior to this weekend's games?
I just need a bit of clarity if someone could help...Is the Midseason Update included as part of my initial purchase (made in the preseason) or will I need to order the midseason updated separately?
I believe it's always been included.
Can somebody explain why Donald Brown is rated so highly in the midseason update?
I'm seeing Roethlisberger coming out as my #1 QB in all my different scenarios, which seems...curious :)
Saw in another thread that players who have had their bye look to have an advantage over those who haven't, explaining Ben comparing favorably to everyone else.
One other question: it looks like return yards are not projected for anyone in the midseason update - is this just the way it always work, same as no updates for IDP?
Hi I believe it's always been included.
