Hey fellas here is what I use for daily fantasy baseball research. Feel free to add or comment!
#1: Twitter is a must!!!! For example if games lock in 30 mins and we are unsure of the weather in NY then just search twitter for Yankees and boom people who are at the game will be tweeting picks from the ball park and talking about the weather so you will know how the weather is as if you were there. And thats just one example of twitter there is alot more I use twitter for then just that.
#2: for lineups I use
#3: for hitters splits vs the starting Pitcher I use
#4: for Weather I use
#5: for detailed splits like day vs night and how a pitcher pitches at a certain ballpark blah blah blah I use espn here is an example for Lincecum……5/tim-lincecum
#6: for daily picks
#7: for batter vs SP analysis and other info
#8: for more daily picks but not as good as insiderfantasy (I actually use this to decide who to fade)
#9: If podcast are your thing this here is one that focuses on DFS…x_5_9_2012-183 (todays podcast)
