Daily Fantasy Baseball Lineup Optimizer

The Daily Fantasy Cafe MLB Lineup Optimizer allows you to create better lineups faster than you ever thought possible. In conjunction with our projections system and stacking tool, we offer our users the ability to create hundreds of lineups optimized for that night in just minutes. With our outstanding customization process of both projections and player pool, make the competitive lineups you want to play.

Take a look at important hitter stats like wOBA and ISO splits by handedness, pitcher stats like K% and Opponent wOBA, batting order, park factors, weather and more. Search for the players you are looking for or filter by game, position or salary.

Once you've gone through all those important stats, lock players you want to include in your lineups and exclude players you don't want included. Edit the DFC fantasy point projections or import your own projections from an excel file. We also provide you with our value metric, Cafe Value, to ensure you know a players' value based on his salary.

Use our revolutionary "Exposure" setting to decide what the maximum percentage of lineups you want any individual player in. This is a great tool to use for tournaments in order to spread your action evenly among great plays and to avoid being too heavy on any one player.

Now that you've taken care of all that customization, click "Generate Lineups" to view a plethora of optimal lineups based on your customized locks, exclusions and projections. Keep running it over and over until you’ve put together a winning lineup.

If you have been playing NBA and NFL this past season, you noticed our revamped lineup optimizer. We will be bringing the same freshness to MLB, with loads of options. A new game tabs layout is new this year, allowing you to checkout starting lineups easier than before. Users can lock, exclude, and bulk update from this screen. This gets you started on making the best optimal lineups in the industry.

The Stack Generator was a side tool for MLB last year, but we have integrated it into our Lineup Optimizer, and also added the addition to personalize your stacks even more. We have given you the ability to stack based off of a team or an individual player. Users can use this within the stack generator, or from numerous tabs. Salary Exploitation and Park Factors are also easily accessible in the optimizer, without leaving the page.

We have brought in additional stats, both basic and advanced this season. This helps you from flipping between multiple tabs, and keeps you in once place. Our pre-determined player pools based in player stats and new projection models give you creativity like never before. Adding these new features on top of a blazing fast generated lineup process, will help you churn out winnings lineups at another level.

If you are looking to build lineups on the fly, our mobile friendly tools can help you do so. You will not find a trimmed down mobile version here. What you see on your desktop carries right over to your mobile phone.

With our advanced tools and content for FanDuel, DraftKings and Yahoo, we look forward to you winning more money in 2017.

Most Accurate Draftkings & FanDuel MLB Lineup Generator

Given a projection of fantasy points and a salary for each active player, the problem of finding the best lineup(s) to enter for a particular DFS site boils down to a complex mathematical problem. The goal is to choose some number of players (e.g., 9 players in FanDuel) that maximizes the total projected points that also satisfies all the various constraints defined by the particular DFS site you are playing. If you can find a valid lineup that gives the highest (optimal) projected point value (and your projections turn out to be accurate), then there is no possible way that any other DFS player can beat you. We have dedicated ourselves to build the best FanDuel Lineup Optimizer and DraftKings Lineup Optimizer to help you win.

If you are playing head-to-head and you believe your projections to be fairly accurate, then playing the optimal lineup will undoubtedly help your chances of winning. Similarly, if you are playing a GPP and want to enter multiple lineups, then playing the K-optimal lineups is sure to improve your chances. The K-optimal lineups are some number of lineups (K of them) for which there is no valid lineup (besides your K lineups) possible that has higher projected points than all K of your lineups. For playing DFS, having these K lineups at your fingertips provides you with some powerful information.

For a typical night, MLB might have 500 players to choose from. There are 5,006,325,637,513,057,000 possible ways to pick 9 players from 500. This is a huge number of lineups to consider. A brute force approach to finding good lineups is just not possible. Of course, the majority of these lineups are not valid and do not satisfy the various lineup rules defined by the DFS site. Examples of rules include: budget, team representation, roster requirements, etc. Each of these rules must be accounted for in searching for the optimal lineup(s). Our goal wasn’t approximate lineups, which is what most DFS sites provide. We provide the most optimal lineups possible to give you an edge and win more money.
