YThis page is dedicated towards the sport of daily fantasy baseball, a sport within itself.
It would be great if we could hand pick watched players for our daily main slates for MLB DFS on draftkings and/or fanduel, but that’s not possible, as there are too many games and too little time. This cuts to the chase of what you really need to know for today.

How do I come to this conclusion about today’s slate of hitters as being the relative best of the field?
Here’s what we measure. wOPS
Here’s what it looks like basically on screen with the worst pitchers on top, that is reverse optimized order for the day.
This picture does not show today’s slate but rather just an example of what to look for in any type of contest.
The wOPS is the Weighted On base + Slugging % so that you know how well a pitcher and/or batter is expected to perform verses the handedness average lineup of the day. If you hover over the L or R-X% you can also see a breakdown of the amount of lefties, the amount of righties, and swich hitting players they are facing today. It will give you the wOPS for each. Something to play around with and once you get the hang of using it, it becomes a lot easier to sort this information.
Ok, so here’s our hitter we need to try and balance out today, watching those players on our draftdashboard or writing them down.
As for pitchers let’s take a look at something borrowed from the dfsarmy and their research team found here: DFS Army Articles
Look there for the article “DFS Army Full Count” under MLB articles.
