Drag & Drop Button, Age, All Player Positions Sheet

I think it would be very helpful if the drag-and-drop button was larger. That tiny section makes it far too easy to 'select all' on the page making it unreadable. The drag-and-drop process is easily the best feature on the site - but could be much better. 
 
Adding player ages would be great. Us Dynasty football freaks like to know player ages when compiling rankings. 
 
Finally, for football it would be great if an 'all positions' sheet could be created. I like doing 'overall player rankings' in addition to other individual player position rankings. I'm probably not alone in this. 
 
Thanks. Cool app.

    Hey thanks for stopping by!
     
    The Drag Handle
    That's an interesting idea for expanding the size of the drag handle.  No one has ever mentioned this before but it wouldn't be too hard to expand it a bit. 
     
    Player Ages

    It's funny that you mention this, I just today updated my database to store player birthdays.  The main reason I wanted to store this information is to graph each player's production against the expected path of each position's decline.  Each player's decline is based on the position they play and it's useful to know when this decline starts.  You can see a graph of WR declines in our article 10 steps to create player rankings.  Eventually, I'd like to provide a graphical warning/indication of when a player has begun his decline.
     
    Multiple Sheets per Position

    This is one of my top features to implement for next year.  It will be done.
     
    Thanks a bunch for the feedback.  Sorry it's taken awhile to respond.

    What's up Misfit74?
     
    This is a heads-up that 2 of the 3 feature requests you mentioned have been implemented:
     
    1.  Player age is now presented in each player template.
    2.  Drag handles are wider (a full 10 pixels), color-coordinated based on team, and work on all touch-screen devices.  The wider handles were a must for ranking on touch-screen devices which now works much better.
     
    Below is a comparison of how LeVeon Bell looked in our older player templates and how it looks in the new design. 
     

    Now many components of the player template are based on team color, but at the same time the majority of the template is consistent to avoid color overload.  I wanted to add just enough team-color-cues to make it easier to locate players, but not go overboard.  Let me know what you think.

    I'll be working on 'multiple positions per sheet' starting this week so we'll see how it goes.  But I thought you may like an update on progress so far.
