    Hi all! I am new to Daily Fantasy and currently developing a research routine/strategy for the upcoming MLB season and other sports down the road. I’m looking for some insight to create a more effective routine. I’m not asking for “secret formulas” haha just some person strategies, processes, etc.

    I always start with weather. It can help reduce the player pool, especially if you play a site with no late swap.

    There are several layers to my routine (and it’s not perfect and I’m not a high volume MLB player, but i do well enough to win the first 6-9 weeks of the season then stop playing)

    Daily routine
    The night before i fill my spreadsheet with the names of each pitcher and who they’re going against. and enter whatever tournaments I want to play the next day.
    the next morning I check the vegas lines to see who are the favorites and kind of get an idea about which teams i want to target. Also, the pitcher spreadsheet gives me important data that allows me to figure out which pitchers I want to target
    Around 3pm (central) I start looking at starting lineups and see if any value has emerged somewhere advantageous
    I build my teams using the pitcher data and hitting data that i’ve got in my spreadsheet
    when lineups lock I’m done with baseball for the next few hours
    after kids are in bed i repeat the process

    Weekly
    update my spreadsheet raw data from fangraphs,
    check results frrom the week and see if i missed something obvious that could have helped turn around a lineup here or there

    Start by finding your value picks. Determine strength of value picks by position, replace weaker positions with studs = Profit

    Would you say this part is specific to pitchers you want to roster, pitchers you want to hit against, or both?

    i use it for both. if i start examining a pitcher and decide i dont like him, but he’s a good pitcher on most days, i start to target him with bats in gpps.

    really, you could do ALL of your research by just studying pitchers and bullpens. it does help however to research batters as that can help you avoid players who suck.

    I feel sorry for people who don’t drink. When they wake up in the morning, that’s as good as they’re going to feel all day.

    1) Start by thinking about what a bummer it is that NBA season is over
    2) wait a few months
    3) use the money you saved by not losing baseball contests to enter NBA contests
    4) repeat every 12 months

    Notebook pen and a 12 pack of beer. Drink 6 beers while doing research and 6 more after the games start
