Last season I tried daily MLB for the first time, and about halfway through created a spreadsheet that generated a lineup based on projections and certain weighting factors based on splits and stats… Turns out after a lot of time working on it, it didn’t seem to work much. My thinking now is that using imported projections from fantasy sites can be severely flawed.
With the upcoming season approaching, I am trying to figure out the best way to utilize a spreadsheet, since it seems to be a helpful tool to almost everyone that is successful with DFS…. so how do you setup your spreadsheet? Do you use it to just provide a place to more easily sort through data from sites like fangraphs? Or do you use an optimizer to spit out lineups? Thoughts?
