I’ll be the first to admit… I don’t play much daily fantasy baseball. And not because I don’t enjoy it. Mostly because the 7 PM start times during the week don’t fit well into my life. Getting home from work around 6 PM and then sitting down for dinner makes playing during the week all but impossible.
This page documents my journey to build a daily fantasy baseball spreadsheet that can automate much of the data gathering (e.g. salaries, starting lineups, projections, etc.) necessary to build a successful lineup.
Maybe eventually we can design a spreadsheet that will make playing during the week realistic.
The articles below start from developing and understanding of the basic strategies of the game and progress into some rather technical approaches to gathering daily fantasy baseball data from resources on the web.
