There are many things that you can do with our MLB DFS study hub. It’s loaded with information and has many different functions that you can mess around with. We have these study hubs for MLB DFS, NBA DFS, NFL DFS, NASCAR DFS, NHL DFS, PGA DFS, and MMA DFS. Today, I wanted to break down different ways to use the Study Hub with examples of filters used. These are up to the user for what metrics and at what levels they’d like to use for each category. The world is your oyster!
These are the last 14-days of team-by-team splits vs. starting pitcher-handedness. Basically, you can get a quick glimpse of which teams are HOT vs. handedness of pitcher based on splits alone.
This is a list of hitters with a .400 wOBA / .300 ISO split with at least 20 Plate Appearances over the last 30-days of baseball.
This list is compiled by sorting in the MLB DFS Study Hub. The DraftKings Rating category was filtered to 75 and above. The projections category was filtered by “Above Average”. The DraftKings Value category was filtered by “Above Average”. The DraftKings ownership % category was filtered by players less than 10% owned (filtered as 0.1 to get this result).
This list is compiled by sorting in the MLB DFS Study Hub. The FanDuel Rating category was filtered to 75 and above. The projections category was filtered by “Above Average”. The FanDuel Value category was filtered by “Above Average”. The FanDuel ownership % category was filtered by players less than 10% owned (filtered as 0.1 to get this result).
These targets were created by sorting the DraftKings Rating and FanDuel Rating to 75 or higher. The DraftKings projections and FanDuel projections were filtered by “Above Average”. The DraftKings value and FanDuel value were sorted by “Above Average”. The FanDuel ownership and DraftKings ownership were not filtered for this shortlist.
Study Hub Filters Used
I know what you’re thinking, all this info is great Ed, but how do I use it to build my lineups? I’m going to take you through my process and how I like to analyze the information and produce my lineups. I prefer to play 3-mans, 5-mans, and single-entry tournaments. So, the ongoing lineup study on the Team Rise or Fall Twitch channel has been extremely helpful.
When I look at tonight’s slate we see that it is a monstrous 15-game slate. If you’ve been struggling, don’t play the main slate. I’ve personally had success fading big main slates like tonight and focusing on the smaller ones (DK – Turbo, FD – Express, After Hours, etc). So I’m going to take you through my process for tonight on the DraftKings 8:10 PM EST / 5:10 PM PST slate.
I like to start with my pitchers. The first thing I’ll do is upload projections into our partner and the best optimizer in the industry, Fantasy Cruncher. I’m then going to set my game filter to the 5:10 Turbo slate. I’m looking at ownership specifically. I want to know where the herd is going to see if it’s worth going contrarian in the types of contests I play.
This is telling me the two chalk pitchers on this specific slate are going to be Woodruff and Giolito. If you’re willing to go there, you’re set up with a high floor at the pitcher position and you’ll have nearly $3,800 per batter. However, let’s keep building.
Now my next step is to use the filters above on my specific slate. I want to go first to look at the 400/300 list.
I will likely have most if not all the guys that are on this list as they are the hot bats on the slate.
I do like to go position by position in Fantasy Cruncher to analyze where the ownership is going to be at each position, just like I did at the pitcher position. Let’s take a look at 1st base:
In looking at this, either Moran or Goldschmidt is going to be my first baseman today, but how am I going to determine which? Well, let go look at the Study Hub. This is from the ‘Batter Trends’ tab looking at the 7, 14, and 30-day numbers.
The numbers are very comparable, neither are anything special, but from a roster construction standpoint is Goldschmidt $1200 better than Moran? Based on the totality of what I’m looking at in this first iteration of the Study Hub, absolutely not. Ownership is about the same, projection is about the same, but I’d rather allocate that $1200 to another batter.
I’ll go position by position and look go through that exact process. You’ll find that you align with many of the coach’s core plays and put yourself in a prime position to succeed.
We try to help the community the best that we can and do so at as low of a price as we can. We hope you join the family but there is no pressure here!
