Cheatsheet King 2016 Redesign

2016 marks the 6th year anniversary of Cheatsheet King! Our website has had the same look and feel since 2010, so this year we decided to redesign the site.

Here are a few of the changes we made:

Bigger Cheatsheets

The original website was confined to a somewhat narrow area in the center of the page and it made everything look smaller, including the players on the cheatsheet.  This year, there are no borders and the cheatsheet takes up the full width of the page.  Players faces are larger and their names stand out more.  The size of the logo and the top menu are now smaller which allows more players to be visible on the page.

Easier Navigation

The original menu was bulky and contained links that were not often used, such as “Blog” and “Links”.  The new menu is smaller and inline with the header.  It only contains links for viewing and creating cheatsheets and logging in or logging out.  All of the lesser used links have been moved to the footer.

Faster Site

The new site runs faster.  Creating and editing cheatsheets and general navigation speed have all been improved.

Those are the main improvements to the website to start the 2016 fantasy football season. There were a lot of other minor adjustments made along the way, including our new Facebook page!

With the redesign, Cheatsheet King continues to offer a complete set of tools to help you customize your fantasy football cheatsheets, all for free:

  • Group players into tiers
  • Add and remove players from your cheatsheet
  • Compare players
  • Customize scoring settings to compare player stats
  • Draft from your phone using the mobile site
  • Print a one page cheatsheet

Check out the new design and let us know what you think.  If you enjoy using Cheatsheet King, like us on Facebook!

Pruning Your Cheatsheet

New for 2014, we have added the ability to add and remove players from your cheatsheet.

This feature is intended to help further customize your cheatsheet so that you are not limited by the standard set of players.

For your deeper leagues, ones with more than 14 teams or with deep rosters and benches, you may need to add additional players to your cheatsheet. This will keep you from scrambling at the end of the draft if your cheatsheet has been exhausted.

For the standard 12 team leagues and smaller, the standard cheatsheet that we offer is probably too deep. You’ll want to remove players and keep your printed cheatsheet to a single page. Hopefully, you are not still printing your cheatsheets!

Adding and removing players should also come in handy when we do projection updates. In the past, you were able to view the list of updates and select which players to add or remove. This feature has been replaced by the new add and remove feature. This should give you more flexibility, plus the added benefit of being able to remove any player from your cheatsheet, not just the ones removed from the projection updates.
