Starting with the 2017 MLB season (and continuing for NFL and NBA), Razzball has partnered with Daily Fantasy Cafe to ensure subscribers to our DFS Premium Package can use our Razzball’s expert projections (here is a FAQ) within the most advanced MLB lineup optimizer in Daily Fantasy Sports.

The Razzball MLB Lineup Optimizer powered by Daily Fantasy Cafe includes projections for FanDuel, DraftKings (Standard mode), and Yahoo. It has the standard features you expect from your standard MLB Lineup Generator (lineup confirmation, weather, lock in or exclude a player, etc.) as well as many advanced features such as:

  • Easier Comparisons of Lineups Using Different Settings – The tabbed interface allow you to toggle between multiple 10-100 lineup runs based on different settings (e.g., different stacks, locked players, etc.)
  • Team Stacks – Like a certain team(s) for tonight’s games? Create multiple lineups around any team or let the Optimizer select the most optimal stack for you.
  • Player Stacks – Like a certain player(s)? Create lineups around 1 or more players. Optimizer will select the optimal combinations according to your settings.
  • Save Setting Profiles – Avoid having to make the same setting changes each time. Just save your settings.
  • Save Lineups – Do you like to research early in the day and then revisit later in the day? You can save unlimited lineups.
  • Download CSV – Download one or all your lineups for easy uploading to DraftKings & FanDuel.

One area that I think is worth highlighting is Player Exposure. When you are generating in upwards of 100 lineups, just ‘locking in’ and excluding players becomes both unwieldy and ineffective. Do you really want the same player in 100 different lineups? This optimizer provides two features that makes diversifying one’s lineups much more efficient:

  • Set A Fixed Player Exposure – You can set the percentage of lineups in which a player is included – e.g., 50% puts him in 50 of your 100 lineups.
  • Set A Ceiling for Player Exposure – Hate seeing the same players in all your lineups? You can set a ‘global’ player exposure ceiling to increase the player diversity. The ceiling is only set for players you have not manually adjusted so you can set a ceiling of 25% for all players while still playing Kershaw in 70% of of your lineups.
  • Review Player Exposure From Optimized Lineups – See below for an example. Think Matt Holliday is a bad play? You can remove him completely (the X to the right of his name)  or set the exposure ceiling right from the results page.

Hi –

Not sure who to reach out to, but I’m having trouble logging in to the tools I’m subscribed to (Streamonator, Hittertron, etc). I had signed up for a 3 day trial of the premium tools last week, but once that expired, I now can’t access my old tools. I get a message saying “Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page.”

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

AL Only 5×5 Standard Roto: Wary of JD Martinez’ injury risk and impending (possible) trade to an NL team. Thinking of offering the following:

Give: JD, Gallo, Kepler, Berrios

Get: Correa, Hicks, David Robertson

Rationale: IMO, Correa is the best player in the deal, and I get a good return for doing away with the JD Martinez worry. Robertson is on the trade block as well, but I own Nate Jones & Kahnle, so I should have the Sox saves wrapped up ROS, for whatever that’s worth. Falling behind on SV with Chapman & Bedrock on the DL – Justin Wilson is my only active closer. Gonna try and scoop up Salazar off the wire (just dropped) & see how that plays out. Team after trade would be:

c – Avila (soon to be Ramos)
1b – Healy
2b – Altuve
ss – Lindor
3b – Machado
if – Correa
of – Betts
of – Springer
of – Haniger
of – Zimmer
util – Hicks/Bird

sp – Kluber
sp – McCullers
sp – Ed-Rod
sp – Devenski
rp – Robertson
rp – J. Wilson
p – Kahnle
p – O’day (will drop for Salazar)
bn – Shoemaker
bn – JC Ramirez
bn – Karns
bn – Nate Jones
dl – Chapman
dl – Bedrosian

Got offered Manny Machado for Xander in an 8 team dynasty league. Part of me feels like a good “buy low” trade for Machado since this owner is hating his slump right now.

Good deal or is Xander going to be more valuable than Machado ?
