You can access our MLB features as they come out from our MLB Homepage. Below are all the features that we have for both Daily and for Seasonal Players for MLB in 2019.
Many seasonal leagues will find these features helpful for their daily lineups. Our daily fantasy sports editorial opinions are BAKED into our tools so many of these features will also have data charts that are interactive within them. Virtually all our features contain automated information to show you salaries, ownership projections and if players are in the lineup plus deep data to give you an edge.
- The Daily Round Up - Every day, we will give the important happenings from the day before for seasonal and daily fantasy baseball players.
- 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 and coverage will ONLY COVER THE MAIN SLATE. 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.

- Example Lineups – We publish the lineups using all the information and tools for the day to show you the process for creating winning lineups. We post “pivots” that allow users to make changes or learn how to build other lineups with more information.
- Heart of the Order Video – Every day we produce a video that reveals our core-plays in DFS each day and we'll also break down what stacks to consider in daily fantasy sports. Using multiple players from the same lineup who are next to each other is one of the best strategies for big scores in GPP tournaments..
- Real-Time Chat – Our analysts will be there for you every day leading up to lineup lock to help you get the answers you need to succeed plus be there for every seasonal move or trade to help you validate or maximize value from it.
- Live Streaming – We have created a live streaming technology that allows us to broadcast over Facebook, YouTube, Twitter (Periscope), on SportingNews.com and Live on FantasyAlarm.com. We will have these on the most important days for daily fantasy sports and weekly for seasonal fantasy baseball fans.
