1 Proofreading: Arizona…

Proofreading: Arizona Cardinals chapter, table 3. Steve Walsh is supposed to have two asterisks, but he has only one.

2 When will KUBIAK become…

When will KUBIAK become available? If I purchased a package that includes KUBIAK, will it automatically be added to my account for download?

3 KUBIAK

Actually, you won't be getting a download of KUBIAK... because KUBIAK this year is a web application rather than a downloadable Excel file! No more having to update your league rules every time you download a new KUBIAK update, because it will update automatically! You'll learn more when we finally release the application next week.

6 How to fix Excel formula on an app?

I've been using the excel spreadsheet for draft prep and during our draft auction for many years. I have some concerns about using an app rather than a spreadsheet.

  1. Our rules are strange. I have to fix one of the calculations to deal with one them. With the spreadsheet, it has been easy enough. How will that work with an app?
  2. Internet access is spotty at our league manager's house - especially with half a dozen guys hammering at his wifi. I'm concerned about using an app that requires being online. Will there be any way to pull the results down so they can be used offline? 

I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy the PDF and the app when it's available.

7 KUBIAK app

I think you're going to be out of luck with No. 1, unfortunately. You won't be able to adjust the formulas in the web application.

As far as No. 2, there will be two downloads. There will be a printable version of your cheat sheet after you use the app to customize for your league rules. There will also be a downloadable .csv file with just the projections but not the valuation formulas.

8 As long as you can download…

In reply to by Aaron Schatz

As long as you can download the raw data in a CSV, you can copy it into an older version of the KUBIAK Excel file and do it that way. That's what I'll be doing, I'm sure.

9 Correction

Just got my copy, found a minor error. In the Chargers chapter it says Philip Rivers turns 38 in August. His birthday is actually in December. I suspect what may have happened is that his birthday 12/8 might have been flipped around in a spreadsheet somewhere to the European format 8/12.
