I was cleaning up spam on the site just now and I think I accidentally deleted some reader comments from this thread, which I did not mean to do. So, sorry about that. However, there are not supposed to BE reader comments in this thread. From the initial post: "Please do not post to this discussion thread if you are not FO staff. If you have questions about this year's KUBIAK projections, please send them to our mailbag (mailbag@footballoutsiders.com)."

Will we get another update today or tomorrow? I love the tool but it is not very helpful if it is not updated more frequently. Drafting with outdated information can ruin an entire year.
