A lot changes from year to year in the MLB offseason. Louiescards breaks down each team getting you up to speed so that you can start the season on the right path. In the MLB spring training package there is less of a focus on DFS strategy and more focus on information vital to early season success. From team win totals to projected lineups/rotations you can find information on every team in the league. As spring training goes on and we get closer to opening day/night there will be a weekly updates article covering all of the major news that impacts the DFS world.
Injuries are key to playing DFS and knowing who is dealing with them in spring training is important to starting the season off right. Andrew will update you with the most fantasy impacting injuries on a weekly basis. This will be updated on Thursday and Sunday nights.
As we get closer to the season there will be moves that shake things up a bit. Andrew will cover any relevant updates each Wednesday and Sunday with a brief run down on how it may effect us as DFS players.
I want to create a section in this marketplace where subscribers can ask questions outside of chat. The reason being is that not all subscribers will be available when I am in chat and this is a good way to share the info with you all. If you have a question regarding DFS in general, game theory, specific MLB questions, or anything you feel will help you be a better player then shoot me a private message here on RotoGrinders or DM/@ me on Twitter (working with dev team to see if we can add comments). All questions will be posted and answered here in the mailbag section so that we can all learn together. In theory this would work as a hybrid to coaching with the time being more flexible for both parties. With that said, fire away with anything you want to know.
DFS players should be all too familiar with the offenses from the AL East and this year will be no exception. Andrew will not only break down each offense but highlight a new ace that joined the division in the offseason.
In 2016 things went the Rangers way but Vegas tells us that we could be in store for one of the better division battles here in the AL West. Both Houston and Seattle are projected within one win of Texas making for a very interesting group to break down.
With Cleveland controlling the division in 2016, Andrew breaks down the key movers and shakers in the AL Central to give a better idea of who if anyone can compete this season.
There are a good amount of DFS worthy arms in the NL East but it is easy to forget about some of those bats in the process. The Nationals lead the way again according to Vegas and Andrew covers why it is possible they are being slightly under rated despite a pretty solid team win total.
Much of the talk surrounding the NL West for DFS purposes lies with a ballpark in Denver, but that is not the only subject worthy of some time. Andrew breaks down a division that not only has two of the best hitters ballparks in the league but a ton of potential arms and bats that will make our lineups this season.
The NL Central would typically be a Cardinals love fest for Andrew, but there is a new sheriff in town and he looks to be primed for a lot of run. Coming off an incredible World Series win the Cubs look to be a juggernaut that have plenty to offer for DFS. With that said there are plenty of players that can help us win as he dives in a bit deeper at this top heavy division.
In this article Andrew explains why it is important to understand what stats you are using when building lineups each day. He also dives into what we can look forward to in the near future with some newer technology being adopted by MLB which could be beneficial to our process moving forward.
This chat will be a good way to get away from the noise in RG general chat. Andrew will schedule times to be available for questions regarding strategy and anything you might want to know about the upcoming season. First chat will be Sunday April 2nd @ 8pm est.
