If you're playing MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball contests, you might find these top-value players helpful for building your lineup. ASL has calculated optimum lineups for DraftKings, FanDuel and Yahoo contests, based on three different projection sources -- numberFire, RotoGrinders, Fantasy Six Pack -- as well as a Blend projection lineup that uses all three sources together.
