Daily Fantasy Baseball Breakdown (7/9/14)
Overview: There are so many factors that go into choosing who to play in daily fantasy baseball. By the time you weigh all the factors of who would be a good play and compare that to the different player prices, it can take hours just to put together a decent lineup, and you still aren’t guaranteed to win.
More than likely, you don’t have the necessary time needed to do this on a daily basis (it’s called “daily fantasy” for a reason). I was in the same boat. To fix this, I put together a spreadsheet that awards points to players based on the factors that are necessary to a good play (ballpark, pitching matchup, recent player production, etc.). All I have to import data, and I see which players have the most factors working in their favor. All you have to do is come to this webpage.
Here are today’s results:
