MLB MME Strategy – DraftKings

Quick Intro to MLB DFS

I build my lineups using FantasyCruncher. I highly recommend using them for your optimizer.

Stack – I typically stack the most allowable (5 hitters) on DraftKings in every lineup. This allows for the highest correlation in each lineup.

Projections – If you haven’t built your own projection system, then you can use multiple sources on the market. SaberSim and Awesemo both do a great job. I use my own projections as another way to differentiate myself from the field.

Exposures – I use formulas in Excel to come up with unique exposures for every player. My exposures are based on how often I believe the player puts up the top score at his position then adjusted for ownership projections.

Ownership – Example: Pitcher A, priced at $10k, projected to put up the top score 20% of the time, projected ownership of 40%. Pitcher B, also priced at $10k, projected to put up the top score 10% of the time, projected ownership of 5%. Even though Pitcher B won’t put up the top score as often as Pitcher A, I would much rather have him in my lineups. When a lower owned player outperforms a higher owned player, it is much easier to reach the top of contests.

Uniques – Different number of players per lineup. Setting this number higher will naturally force more diversification.
