The below was excerpted from an article on Footballguys.com by Adam Harstad - the complete article is HERE.
You're Set Up. Now What?
Once you're back at your MyFBG page with one or more leagues linked up, you're free to take advantage of all of that personalized goodness. During the preseason, the top of your MyFBG page will be filled with preseason features. Once the season kicks off, this will automatically switch to in-season features so that the most relevant information is always the first thing you see.
And what kind of features are available? Under preseason features, you'll find custom cheatsheets generated for your league's specific scoring system, as well as player projections. You can also look up historical fantasy production, (so if you have a league with a weird scoring system and you want to see, say, how the top 10 tight ends scored in 2012, you can do that).
The real beauty is not just the information, but how it's presented. For instance, in my oldest dynasty league, here's Bob Henry's preseason running back projections. Le'Veon Bell is on my roster, so he's helpfully highlighted in yellow. Our league hasn't held its rookie draft, so players like Leonard Fournette are still free agents and are therefore highlighted in blue as "available".
Perhaps neatest of all, I can click on any team name at the top of the list and that team's players will be highlighted in pink. Here, I've opted to take a closer look at my friend Randall's team. With two strong RB1s on his team already, Randall probably won't be looking to trade up in the rookie draft to grab one of this year's top prospects. That's good to know!
For in-season features, there are custom waiver reports that aren't forced to guess what kinds of players may or may not actually be available. There's the option to see recent news reports pertaining to players on your roster, or to get rest-of-season projections for your league, (along with the same handy highlighting system used by the preseason projections).
But the real crown jewel of MyFBGs is the 10-second primer, a feature so cool we put a giant red box around it to make extra sure you didn't miss it. If you're the bookmarking type, you can also navigate to the 10-second primer at any time at http://subscribers.footballguys.com/myfbg/myjustthefacts.php. (If you're tempted to just set that as your homepage, it's okay, I promise this is a judgment-free zone.)
Now, right now the 10-second primer won't look like much because there aren't any week 1 projections yet to feed into it. But here's an example of what you might have seen in week 1 last season.
The 10-second primer gives you projections for all the players on your roster, tailored to your scoring system, with top free agents listed in blue for comparison, and with relevant news blurbs easily accessible by clicking on any of those small blue "i" symbols.
Moreover, it gives you all of that information for all three sets of weekly projections Footballguys produces, and it repeats that for every single one of your leagues. And this is where MyFBG starts saving you so much time. You can navigate to your 10-second primer early in the week, note the best blue names, and you have your waiver recommendations.
Then you can quickly compare the three sets of projections and set your lineup while you're at it. And in under 15 minutes, using only one page, you've managed to handle all of the mandatory weekly business associated with that league.
And that's the real power of MyFBG. It doesn't just help you build a more awesome football team. It frees you to go out and have a more awesome life while you're at it.
We've worked hard to make setting up a league profile and unlocking the power of MyFBG as quick and painless as possible, but we know that with any technology, sometimes things will go wrong. If you have any issues at all, at the bottom-right corner of every page on Footballguys is a blue circle with a question mark inside.
Clicking that circle will take you to the Footballguys technical support page, complete with frequently asked questions to help you troubleshoot common problems. If you're still having difficulties, in the top-right corner is a link to submit a help request. For any help requests, support will need your Footballguys username; a guide on how to find that is available here.
Otherwise, I hope you enjoy MyFBG as much as I have over the years, and best of luck over the coming season!
