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.
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
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.
