Nix DreamTrader – after Round 20
Hi Dreamers, Hope everyone survived the games of the 20th Dreamiad and you are still alive for the finals. I lost a few qualifying finals, including one to Dr.DreamTeam – oh the shame! But at least I have another chance. Here is the update of Nix DreamTrader, version name revolving door.

Here is the update of Nix DreamTrader, version name revolving door.
Most dreamers only have LTI /emergency sideways trades left so they aren’t looking at upgrading their sides. However, I’ve added a bit more information to each trade scenario – the sides each player faces in the last few rounds, plus the proportion of teams holding each player. You may find this useful.
There is a neat correlation between the Trader and RLGriffin’s Mad Monday article this week.
– The Trader includes built in benchmarks similar to the numbers Griff was quoting for each position to discourage players who don’t score enough for their position.
– Also the MagnetBoard has a column showing season total points per $100k for each of the players in your team. The benchmark for this is updated every round and is currently 390 points for every $100k in player value. If your players are above this their number will be shown in blue, if they are below their number will be shown in red. So you have an easy way of seeing which players aren’t pulling their weight in total points.
Anyway here is the update file …
The file is an MS Excel 2007 spreadsheet, so it will try to open in MS Excel 2007 or similar.
I am happy to try to export it in other forms if posters want to suggest something feasible. However, the formulas are quite technical, so I am not optimistic it will transfer to other platforms easily.
I didn’t post an update last week. In part this was because I was working on an extra matchup component to allow you to compare your side against the teams in your leagues, and monitor the progress of the head to head games. But I decided to pull this out and make it a separate file. I’m still finalising it and will post it in a couple of days.
