Putting It All Together: Advanced Pitcher and Hitter Selection

Putting It All Together: Advanced Pitcher and Hitter Selection takes skills obtained from JMToWin’s pitcher and hitter selection strategies and uses them to assemble rosters that maximize upside and minimize wasted salary and roster space.

In this course, you’ll learn:

• How to attack both small and large slates
• How to balance salary and where to “pay down”
• The process of assembling a roster on a day-by-day basis
• How to put all of this knowledge together in order to maximize your chances of cashing in both GPP’s and cash games

8 lessons

  1. 1

    Introduction to Putting It All Together

    All the knowledge you have gained through your study of “predicting pitching” and “predicting hitting” (or all the knowledge you already possess in these areas) is a tremendous benefit for you. Until you learn how to “put it all together,” however – balancing your knowledge in each area, learning how to attack each slate, and understanding how to build consistently winning rosters – you will never quite reach the heights of MLB DFS success you are capable of reaching.

  2. 2

    Breaking Down a Slate

    Each day provides us with a blank canvas onto which we can paint our MLB DFS masterpiece…right? Wrong! Once we understand how to predict pitching, predict hitting, and properly break down a slate, it’s more like each day provides us with a “paint by numbers” we can use in order to paint our MLB DFS masterpiece. Paint by numbers are far easier than blank canvases…

  3. 3

    Balancing Salary

    How to balance salary across a roster: this is one of the questions that provides more problems for MLB DFSers than just about any other. Once you understand where your salary should go (and why!), you will be in far better position to crush MLB DFS day after day.

  4. 4

    How to Start Each Day

    Over time, each of us will come up with our own, distinct approach to attacking a slate and winning in MLB DFS consistently. In this lesson, we examine the way in which I personally start each slate, in order to provide you with an idea of what this process looks like for me.

  5. 5

    How to Proceed

    Over time, each of us will come up with our own, distinct approach to attacking a slate and winning in MLB DFS consistently. In this lesson, we examine the way in which I personally proceed with each slate – after the initial “start” – in order to provide you with an idea of what this process looks like for me.

  6. 6

    My Approach to Building Teams

    This is the pivotal lesson in the entire course – taking all the knowledge gained throughout the course (and even throughout the courses that precede this course) and putting it together into a comprehensive and easy-to-manage piece. This is a look at how I approach building teams.

  7. 7

    Where to Pay Down

    Over time, each of us will come up with our own, distinct approach to attacking a slate and winning in MLB DFS consistently. In this lesson, we examine the way in which I personally start each slate, in order to provide you with an idea of what this process looks like for me.

  8. 8

    Putting It All Together

    Knowledge is great! Knowledge correctly applied is even better. In this lesson, we tie everything from this third course (and from the first two courses!) together in order to help you truly “put it all together” – providing you with the path on which you need to travel in order to build MLB DFS rosters that win, over and over again.
