To access our Daily Fantasy Research Tools, simply scroll up to the blue menu above and click on the yellow text reading “Daily Research.”

We’re proud to announce the latest addition to RotoGrinders.com, the Daily Research Console V 2.0! We are pumped to unveil this new feature, not only because it’s an awesome foundation for dozens of Daily Fantasy research and strategy tools both today and in the future, but also because it’s the culmination of awesome suggestions from RG’s users. This update wouldn’t have been possible without the feedback we receive regularly from Grinders, so thanks to all of you that provided towards this idea, and keep the suggestions coming in the future! Let’s take a look at the improved Daily Research Console, and the new lineup-building tools you have at your disposal!

Daily Research Console Ver. 2.0

Improved Layout

The new layout combines the best features from the old Daily Research Dropdown, plus the Grinders Incentives menus our Incentives members have grown accustomed to. Now all of your favorite Daily Fantasy Research tools are sorted by site, and by sport, in one convenient location that you can access from any page on RotoGrinders. Just hold “Ctrl” and click on each button to conveniently open each tool in a new tab whenever you need them, or click each individual tab to open the page.

Even more exciting is what the new organization and layout means for the future. Now RotoGrinders has the ability to add new Daily Fantasy research stats and tools efficiently. We were running out of space for them in the past, but now that everything is sorted by site and by sport, we can just add the new tool in, add a button and we’re good to go! Keep the ideas coming in for new tools in the future.

New Research and Strategy Tools in V 2.0

In addition to the Lineups and Weather, MLB Splits, Freerolls page and Incentives Player Projections, we’re introducing a few new tools for Version 2.0 of the Daily Research Dropdown. Here’s a quick synopsis of each. Just click the Daily Research Dropdown button in the header above to access each:

1) PvB – You’ve heard of BvP split stats, but we felt we needed something more for the Pitchers. This tool gives you daily stats for each Starting Pitcher’s matchup for that day! Currently it includes their historic stats vs. the batters on the team they are facing that day. Similar to BvP, you can use these stats to help guage the Pitcher’s future performance. We’ll be building upon this tool moving forward, to make it one of your first stops each day for projecting Pitchers.

2) Ballpark Factors – When evaluating two equally valued players, one of the strongest factors is where the game is being played. Now you can use RotoGrinders Ballpark Factors tool to help you rank your plays for the day! We use historical data from 2001-2012 at all the active ballparks, split by Left and Right hitters to show you where the best edges can be found!

3) MLB Weekly Cheat Sheet – Want to plan ahead for the week? Now you can! After receiving great feedback on the debut article, we’ve decided to make BOwens1984’s Weekly Cheat Sheet a permanent fixture in the Daily Research Console. BOwens1984 (aka Brad, aka the RG Twitter Admin) is bringing you a preview of tasty matchups to look for each day of the week, based on stats like Home/Away splits, Left/Right splits, OPS and others. This tool will give you the top picks to target throughout the week in MLB.

4) Vegas Odds and Lines – “Vegas” has always been intertwined with the sports industry, and for good reason. In a game like fantasy baseball where all players are linked to their teammates’ performances, lines like the Over/Under can help you figure out what high-scoring games you want your players to come from. Not only that, but the ‘Moneyline’ can help you figure out your Pitcher’s chances on getting the ‘W’ that day. If that’s not enough, we’ve added daily ‘player props’ for good measure, so you can use some ‘Vegas’ tools to help you figure out which of your offensive players might explode that day.

5) Strategy Vault Update – Finally, we’ve updated the Strategy Vault…and it’s getting impressive. The wealth of knowledge shared by RotoGrinderes writers and members is becoming a huge asset for Daily Fantasy Grinders. Included in the update are almost a dozen new articles, interviews and columns that make up the best-of-the-best on RG, but most notably is a new Site Salary Pricing Tool submitted to us by KCearnal, which allows you to easily adapt to each site’s pricing structure.

More to Come!

And that’s just the start! We have Expert Lineups coming in the very near future, plus dozens of other MLB, NFL, NHL and even NCAA tools lined up for the future. There’s no stopping us as to what we can provide you in this new interface, so let’s hear the suggestions and feedback! Shoot us an email at any time to let us know what you like, dislike or think we should add in the future…and as always, good luck on the Grind!
