Delete the players from the spreadsheet once the scouting tool tells you not to draft them. Also, pay attention to the requirements for each position. For instance, a defensive end requires at least one B+ grade and a minimum of a B- grade. If the first skill you scout is rated less than a B+, stop scouting and move on. You can read about all the requirements on his bloghttps://natedogg-gaming.blogspot.co....ool-guide.html

Yes. Just enter the players you scout. If you don't fully scout the players they won't compare right (ie just combine numbers and no top 3 skills).

Re: Scouting Tool for Madden 17 CFM

I set up a Google sheet for data collection to see if we can come up with an expected TVR to Overall comparison by position. If you want to help collect the data request access to the sheet. I also included spaces for the player's projected round as well as their "Madden True Value" to see if we can find any further correlations.

Yeah just enter the ones you scout. No way you'll have enough points to do every prospect in a draft class, so it's a waste of energy putting them in. I find I can do every prospect from rounds 1-7 and a few UDFA prospects in a weak-average class. In a strong class, there's usually a position or two with some undrafted prospects projected in rounds 1-7. Most rows you'll ever need unless you're reloading etc. to refresh your scouting point allocation for a week is about 200.

This is a great idea, but it would help me even more if I had access to all of the user inputted data plus actual OVR (i.e. all the scouted skills, grades and combine stats). This will help with weighting the TVR, but won't help me tweak the criteria.

Any chance you could add those fields (preferably in the same order as in my original tool to make copying and pasting easier)?

I've got reams of data I can put in, but I'll only put in the post tuning update classes.

Yeah I'll edit those fields in

Re: Scouting Tool for Madden 17 CFM

Google sheet edited to more closely resemble the scouting sheet. I did reorder the combine measurements so they are in order that they appear on the prospect card.

EDIT: When collecting data, set all positions you are inputting to Balanced in your schemes, except for Right and Left Ends who do not have a "Balanced" archetype so should be set to 3-4 Versatile which is the most balanced overall formula for the Ends.

All right, that makes sense. I'll make some adjustments tonight.

Regarding the ones with a projection of "undrafted". Do you scout them at the same time as 1-7? Like on step one when you're doing QBs do you go through all the QBs projected 1-7 AND the QBs projected to be undrafted? Or do you scout the 1-7s and move on to offensive tackles? Leaving the undrafteds for leftover points for when you've gone through to the last of the 1-7 projected defensive ends?

By the way this tool rocks. I made a forum account just for these questions
