Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We are excited to announce the launch of our premium Daily Fantasy NFL Optimizer, Tools and Projections for the 2020 season and beyond. If you were a member last year you will be familiar with many of the features that we’re offering, but we also have plenty of new content, optimizer upgrades and more.

New This Year

More Data Tools

NFL Simulations: Building on last year’s popular article series, we are now offering NFL Simulations for all contest types directly on the website. Dive into positional probabilities for a player to finish at the top of their position or as the top value. Compare those data points against public roster projections to identify key leverage spots.

NFL Air Yards and Advanced Stats: Dive into advanced stats including air yards and expected touchdowns to identify possible regression candidates and get a leg up in NFL DFS.

Doubling Down on Premium Showdown Content

DailyRoto’s King of Showdown is back as Drewby will offer slate breakdowns for Monday, Thursday, and Sunday primetime Showdown contests, but we are adding even more coverage. Learn from the man who has 15 five-figure Showdown prizes to his name including three $100K+ scores.

We’re also excited to announce a Showdown SZN partnership with Brian Jester and Occupy Fantasy. Brian is one of the sharpest Showdown minds, winner of a $1M Showdown prize, and will bring his unique perspective to each slate. Brian and Drewby will offer a premium podcast to DailyRoto and Occupy Fantasy subscribers this NFL season.

As we continue to conquer Showdown together, we’ll be providing Ownership Projections and Simulations for all primetime Showdown contests.

Be sure to refresh yourself on our premium Showdown Blueprint and How to Beat Showdown (Again) in 2020 articles.

Plus All the Features You Already Love

Premium NFL Written Content and Podcast

Each week we’ll have a variety of different premium pieces including premium podcasts for both Showdown and Main Slate NFL DFS. Our NFL content will walk through the key decisions needed for both cash games and tournaments with exhaustive coverage on the best Fanduel and DraftKings values:

  • Monday: Premium Showdown Analysis; Main Slate GPP Recaps
  • Tuesday: First Look Value Analysis and Injury Updates
  • Wednesday: AutoMattek Absolutes
  • Thursday: Premium Showdown Analysis; Main Slate Stacking Strategy
  • Friday: NFL Slate Simulation and Leverage Breakdowns
  • Fri-Sat: Main Slate NFL Content
  • Sunday: Lineup Alerts and Projection Updates

Customizable Projections

Each week we’ll provide NFL DFS projections for Fanduel, DraftKings, SuperDraft and Yahoo fantasy contests.  Our custom projections are the most transparent in the industry allowing you to understand the team level assumptions (driven by Vegas Odds), as well as individual components feeding into player-level projections. Easily configure lineups with our projections or make tweaks to the data to build your own version.


Fully Integrated Range of Outcomes Projections

We don’t just project average fantasy performance, we also go the next level, projecting a player’s performance as from the 10th percentile all the way up to the 90th percentile. Looking for high floor cash game targets? Consider optimizing on median projections. Looking for high upside wide receiver targets for tournaments? Consider targeting players with strong 75th or 90th percentile outcomes.

Already an excel wizard who works their own magic? Our optimizer also allows you to upload your own NFL DFS projections.

NFL DFS Lineup Optimizer for Fanduel, DraftKings, SuperDraft and Yahoo

Our NFL DFS optimizer allows you to build 150+ lineups across a variety of the most popular daily fantasy platforms including Fanduel, DraftKings and Yahoo. Game tested with more than one million user-generated lineups, our optimizer is powerful enough to support play from some of the biggest daily fantasy professionals but simple enough for the more casual DFS fan logging in on Sunday looking to get some action. Our optimizer will allow you to easily configure stacking, view projections, control player ownerships, and go from lineup creation to upload in just minutes.


Advanced Stacking, Groups, Ownership Constraints

The power user? Yeah, we have you covered as well. Our advanced stacking and groups feature will let you configure individual lineup constraints until your heart is content.

  • Easy to configure GROUPS
  • “KEY” Groups that allow you to construct IF / THEN parameters
  • Groups support multi-player keys
  • Groups support both WITH and WITHOUT rules

And some killer advanced features including Shuffle, Randomness, and Correlated Key Boosts


Advanced Features including Shuffle, Volatility and Correlated Key Boosts

New last year were two optimizer features, including Volatility which layers on top of our propriety Shuffle technology. While Shuffle works to provide player diversity to MME users, volatility lets users account for margins of error and standard deviation of projections. Shuffle and randomness give users control over their player pool while providing a solution to “clumping issues” that can result in too much lineup overlap.

Correlated key boosts are our new jam. When creating groups, DailyRoto subscribers can also create correlation rules alongside those to boost players related to the group. While we are strong advocates of stacking often, many optimizers produce restrictive rules that don’t account for the fact that there is a lot of nuance to how lineups come together and “Always Stack 2 Players” is not always the perfect solution. Correlated keys let the optimizer dictate what stack sizes are optimal based on rules you control.


Fanduel and DraftKings Ownership Projections

For the first year, DailyRoto will have its own ownership projection algorithm driven by our own modeling. This new approach will allow us to generate projections for main slate and Showdown contests.

The ownership projections are designed to provide users with projections for large field GPPs on both Fanduel and DraftKings. Integrated directly into our optimizer, you can set total projected ownership constraints on your lineups or simply view the projections to identify who the best leverage plays might be.

Strategy Guides for Showdown and GPPs

We’ve built out a great depth of content including NFL Stacking Guides for 2020 which can be paired with last year’s article on How to Win GPPs.

These premium articles will provide you a strategic blueprint to help you get the most out of your tournament play. Our GPP Guide walks you through the basic of stacking, game stacking, contrarian theory, leverage and how to construct winning GPP lineups.

Our Showdown Guide and 2020 Update is written by Drewby, who has 15 five figure Showdown scores including 3 $100K+ prizes.

Research Tools

Our DFS oriented research tools give you data on snap counts, carries, targets, red zone stats, DvP, Historical Production, and Play Calling to dive into your own research and analysis.

Lineup Alerts and Breaking News

Up until 15 minutes before rosters lock, subscribers will receive alerts that include up to minute analysis of breaking injury, playing time, weather news, and commentary on how that news will affect the week’s NFL DFS games, including the inactive players for every team. Lineup alerts are both sent as an email and immediately viewable on site.

Premium SLACK Access
