The Playbook Pro is the Fantasy Alarm premium subscription service loaded with content and tools which cater to both seasonal and daily fantasy baseball players. At one time there was a distinct separation between the two, but with the rise of seasonal leagues that utilize daily roster moves, we have found that the two seem to go hand-in-hand and research for one style inevitably becomes helpful to your game in the other as well.
Our primary goal here at Fantasy Alarm is to make you a better fantasy player, whether it’s for seasonal play or DFS, and we have designed the Playbook Pro to teach you how to succeed at that through our tools. We want you to improve your quality of research, make better and more-informed decisions and, when it comes to the DFS game, teach you how to choose the right contests, construct the right lineups and, ultimately, win money.
Our belief in creating a winning culture for FA Nation is going to be infectious. We have the best tools in the industry. We have the strongest staff on both the seasonal and daily sides. We are eager to help you improve your overall game and there is no doubt the Playbook Pro will be your one-stop shop for a successful MLB season.

From prospect articles to category-specific strategies to a study of managerial tendencies, the MLB team studies a number of different angles for improving your in-season strategy and daily play. We’ll discuss all the latest happenings on a daily basis, examine hot and cold streaks, help you find players who may fly under the radar everywhere else and more.
DFS Playbook – Our flagship product, it lays out for daily fantasy sports players, the players they should invest in for that day’s main slate. It is complete with salaries in at least six systems and a deep breakdown of why you should use the player. Again, the DFS Playbook. There may come a time where we explore some split slates, but that is not the norm, nor should it be expected.
Hitting Coach – Your hitting dashboard with in-depth information about the matchups, sabermetrics, salaries, and everything you need to scout the hitters for daily fantasy sports or for your daily lineups in seasonal games. For slates larger of six games or larger, we will have a write up for the best hitters of the day above the data tables.
Pitching Coach - Your pitching dashboard with in-depth information about the matchups, sabermetrics, complete salaries, and everything you need to scout the pitchers for daily fantasy sports or for your daily lineups in seasonal games. For slates larger of six games or larger, we will have a write up for the best pitchers of the day above the data tables.
Hit & Run (all new) – Need help building your DFS lineups? The Hit & Run will provide you with the core players around whom we are building our own lineups, based on price and expected return value. Using these players will allow you to decide where you go with the rest of your lineup, who to spend up for and which value plays might suit you best.
MLB Value Vault (all new) – Mining for value plays is essential to your success in daily fantasy baseball and we do the mining for you here. You’ll get a full list of where we believe the best value can be found each day as you construct your lineups.
DFS Lineup Generator
For DFS players, all our tools recognize scoring, salaries and slates for six DFS sites. Every tool makes it easy for you to see your favorite sites and do the research to make you win.
Our Lineup Generator takes in our editorial content into the engine with analysis of 33 metrics and spits out winning lineups for six different sites. We added full export capabilities and some strategy buttons like stacks to help you control what comes out of the engine.
Each day we will have updated projections for the day’s slate. Using daily projections can give you an idea of which players have the best match-up purely based off the projection algorithm. While projections are not the be-all, end-all, they are a great first-look tool when beginning to set your seasonal and daily lineups.
There is a big debate in the baseball community about the relevance of BvP but we find it incredibly useful when trying to make a decision between one player or another. If the projections are close and the match-up is similar, BvP history can often prove to be a fantastic tiebreaker. If you notice a player has a generally large sample size, typically a divisional opponent, and has had great success against the pitcher, that information needs to be taken into consideration.
The Vegas lineups will show you who is considered the favorites and the team run totals for the game. You can use this information to identify which pitchers Las Vegas thinks could be in line for the win and in DFS that means additional DFS points. Looking at the implied team totals can give you a sense of which offenses are worth stacking when building your lineups.
UFCollective projects the draft percentage for each player in big tournaments on FanDuel & DraftKings. This information in sortable form is a great way to get global information and additionally, the information is for our subscribers on all DFS features that it augments.
DFS Compare Tool (Coming Soon)
Easy to use way to get all the data, projections, salaries and scoring that you need to decide between up to five (5) players at a time for daily moves or weekly moves in your seasonal leagues
