New Feature Alert - The Daddy Leagues Draft Recap

Today Daddy Leagues is announcing its 3rd major upgrade for the Madden 21 season.  In case you missed it , previously Daddy Leagues announced that you can now set which notifications your bot sends to your chat and which ones you may not want it to send- Notification Options Post . Also Daddy Leagues announced the new Trade Console - Trade Console Post  that is meant to really help streamline and speed up the process for those leagues that require trades to be approved by admins. These were two highly requested features .

Today Daddy Leagues would like to announce a new Draft Recap Section to your league pages.

**VERY IMPORTANT**- In order to get this recap to work you must send league info, weekly stats(pick all weeks) and rosters ( please send each separately) while in week 1 of the preseason after your draft. This is when the data for the recap will be pulled.  You can find the recap in new section in your Nav Bar labeled "Draft". When you click Draft you will see a few options as this recap offers several breakdowns.

The first option you will see is Recap. Here you will see a breakdown of each round , who was picked in picks 1-32 of each round . What team made them , with the player they picked, their dev, age, overall and a link to take you quickly to their player page. So you can get a quick view of how the draft went exactly in order by each round.

The second option will be a "Top Ten" list that will list the top 10 players drafted ( by overall) and who drafted them.

The third option of the Draft Recap is the labeled Top Tier. This section tells the Number Of Players Drafted in the "Top Tier" of players from the draft. The "Top Tier" players are based on the top 25% ( in players overall ratings) of players drafted. This section will show a list of how many of the "Top Tier" players each team drafted.

The fourth option is labeled Best Draft Award . This award is given out to the team who had the best draft based on how many of the Top Tier players they drafted along with a formula that adds on points for each player a team drafts thats above normal dev. This is just an extra way for bragging rights in your league when you see your team logo listed as the winner of the Best Draft Award. So even if you cant win a lot of games you still might be able to win an award .

The fifth option is labeled Best Picks. This section will show ( in order based on overall from highest to lowest) the top rated player for each position drafted along with what team picked them, the round picked in , what place in the round they were picked, age , dev and overall rating. This will give you a quick list to see the best players picked at each position in the draft and when they were picked.

Daddy Leagues hopes you will enjoy this new feature  to add a little more extra to your leagues. Many leagues already manually have been trying to keep track of much of this info, this will hopefully make it much easier to keep up with. As well you will be able to go back and see past draft recaps as you progress thru the years. Just another way Daddy Leagues is trying to find new things to add within the limitations allowed due to the limited options given with the info from the app. Thank you all for your continued support over the years and welcome to all the new 1st time users and Leagues. Daddy Leagues hopes you enjoy your league pages. As always feel free to post suggestions for new features in the forums . Hope you all have a blast for Madden 21.

Is the trade calculator a reliable way to determine if trades should go through or not?

The trade calculator is just a tool provided by DL to give some reference or idea on trade value. While true there is a lot in the algorithm for it , its never able to be a perfect solution for a 1 size fits all considering the vast differences in leagues and their rules .

Its really just mean to be an added tool people can kind of look at and get ideas from. Also you can adjust the values it gives players by going to admin page and going to settings there. Then go to "Drafts Left" and adjust the number there ( "Use this to adjust the value of draft picks to make the trade calculator more relevant for your league. it will automatically reduce by one of your first sync of each season." )  After you adjust that and click save, you then need to sync rosters again to get updated values. This is done to give some sort of customization options for leagues to toy with the values to better fit what they feel is more correct for them . Its kind of hard to make one that would make everyone happy so this option was provided to try to help people adjust things alittle more to suit their needs. Hope that helps.

Reset league?

only the person who paid for the site would have the reset option. It is found in the admin> settings page. If you dont see the reset button at the top of that page, then your not listed as the person who paid for the league page. In that case you would need to ask that person to reset it .

route running attributes

Also there is a new attribute called COD - which stands for Change if Direction which needs to be added. I believe it may have replaced the ELU attrtibute

route running attributes

Also it was brought to my attention that last year EA made some attribute changes. The basic route running of players now has indivdual attributes for short/mid/ deep . Is that info being brought in and if so , might want to look at updating that.

Need to show dev rating for every position in attributes history

So it was recently brought to my attention , so i thought id bring this up ( i noticed mymadden is keeping track of this info as well and displaying it to people this year).  Right now only QBs show their Dev rating in their Attributes page. No other position shows it . It needs to show the dev rating for every position on the attributes page.

New Feature Alert - How to use the new Trade Console!

It is not working.  When I select submit new trade I get this message; 500 Internal Error
Sorry this page can not be found

You must make sure you do the initial sync ( as listed how to do in admin page) first at the start of each season. Also you need to make sure your keeping the rosters updated after each advance by exporting rosters each week you league advances to keep that information up to date .

Draft Recap Page Info

Ok, im going to try to lay this out here , with some links to things ive used in past that i created to draw up a draft recap. The guys in my league loved it and i pulled the info from DaddyLeagues mostly, but some i had to get from streaming because currently there was no way to get the info from DL ( eventhough i know you store this info already). I think it would not be that difficult to do this , since your site is already gathering this data, it just needs to be sorted in lists moreso. One reason i think this is a good idea on top of leagues would love it, is it would draw more views to your site. Since most leagues are mostly using their chats, need to find ways to send notifications with links to the chats to give easy access back to site to use it to see stuff.Below ill try my best to put this info here . Any questions just ask:

I imagine a Draft Recap Page in the Nav bar. When someone clicks on it , i then imagine the page itself having its own "nav bar" kinda like front office has.  In this bar each thing i place in red in title below would be an option in that bar. So when someone clicks on it , it takes them to that info .

Draft Order Recap

Here you would have a list for each round showing who was picked 1st in round , 2nd , 3rd , 4th , etc . You already record this info , it would just need to sort it and put them in order in a list. It should show the following info  : Player name ( clickable link to profile) , position, overall , dev , and team that drafted them .

There would be the secondary nav bar on this page saying  " Round 1"  " Round 2 " Round 3" etc. So it would only show 32 player per "page"  . Then if someone wanted to see who was picked in round 3 . they would just click round 3 tab . Instead of one long running list that makes things harder to figure out where they are, seperate each round by itself into its own list .

Top Tier Players

Here you have a list of how many players teams drafted with an overall of 68 or above ( This number was used last year since they changed players overalls as it seems players below this threshold were average or below, the highest players i think there about 73-75 overall.) I used to get this info by going to the player search page, select a team and rookies only right after draft , and then sort those base on overall to quickly gather the data for this. Then i would list ,starting with the team that drafted the most amount at the top and sorting it down. Like this
Browns - 5
Titans - 4
Bills - 4
etc
This just gives people the basic idea ( that also goes into the info for another section later) of what teams picked the most amount of players above average , which is cool info people in leagues like to see.


Top Ten Players
This tab would be just what is says. It would have a list ( just like the first list draft recap) but this one would only show the top 10 players in the draft ( This would be based on their overalls, so basically you would use the data you would get from sorting all rookies by overall and then only showing the top 10 of those. ) Again it should show their name ( clickable) dev , overall , team that drafted them and add what round and what pick in the round they were picked .

Best Pick Per Position
This is pretty simple as well. I used to just pull this info from the player search page, searching by each position , rookies only and sorting by overall to see quickly who was the best overall rated player at each  position. Then just put out a list that would get that info and post the info like :
QB - (NAME/CLICKABLE) Overall, team that drafted, what round and pick in round they were drafted.
HB- (NAME/CLICKABLE) Overall, team that drafted, what round and pick in round they were drafted.
ETC.....
If there are two players with same highest overall , i would check dev to see which had higher dev to decide a "tie" . If both had same dev, then just list both?

Best Draft Award

Ok so here is where i used the info from above in the " Top Tier Players" part. So in order to determine the best draft award this is the formula i used:

# of top tier players + points for each one of those players dev = team with most points wins award.

So here is how i weighted the devs :

Since EA changed to hide the devs ( im guessing this is still the case ?) and you now list their devs as ?? for first season . It means anyone with a ?? is above average dev . So i would just give say 3 points for each player with a ?? dev. If their dev is shown ( i think those are quick or below) then dont add any points . If they have a ?? then add 3 points

So for example

Browns - 5 players  , two of them were ?? ( + 6) = 11 points
Titans had 4 players but 3 were ?? ( + 9) = 13 points
Bills had 4 players but only 2 were ?? (+ 6) = 10 points

So Titans would win the Best Draft Award .
Here you would show team logo kinda big , along with a trophy of some sort and list the 4 players , their dev (showing ??) and what round each was picked in.


I know this would take alittle more work than the notifications and trade console possibly. But i know your site already stores all this info , and it comes down to sorting it in lists for the most part. The Best Draft Award takes alittle more into it , but people in leagues really love to see who had the best draft . This type of info sorting , along with a notification being sent to chat once its done ( after rosters are exported once a new season is started ) would be a great way to drive a lot of traffic back to the site as well as provide a feature leagues would love .

I would also suggest have a tab bar on this page where people can pick every single past year to go back and look over their draft recaps at any point. Instead of only showing the last draft, give them the option to check any seasons draft if they want to go back and check at some point.

If any of this is not clear just let me know and ill try to explain it better.
