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. These aren't necessarily the players that will score the most points, but they represent greatest points verses salary as part of an ideal lineup.

Hit more home runs! ASL's The Machine for Daily Fantasy Sports updates throughout the day with game-time decisions, injury and lineup data, includes projections from top providers, and providers powerful features, such as team stacking, to help you build winning lineups.

Here is a pitcher and a top-value hitter from each projection source for each of the three DFS platforms:
