MLB Daily Games Strategy: Shortcuts

Renee Miller

Neuroscientist at the University of Rochester and author of Cognitive Bias in Fantasy Sports: Is your brain sabotaging your team?. I cover daily fantasy basketball for RotoWire and write for RotoViz about fantasy football.


I'm the type of person that when I do something, I want to do it right. The best possible way. I'm not opposed to shortcuts, as long as the integrity of the thing isn't compromised. In sports and as a scientist, I ask a lot of questions and I don't take common knowledge for granted. Probing the status quo is what science is all about. One of the best lessons I learned in graduate school was that if I had a question about something in a class or seminar, other people probably had the same question. Or at least would be interested in knowing the answer. This attitude drives a lot of what I write about fantasy sports.

Now, I am admittedly a MLB DFS novice. This is my first year playing daily MLB every day. I've tried a lot of different lineup building techniques already, many of which I've written about here. When I started baseball, the first article I wrote here at RotoWire was about the use of past statistics to predict current performance. You can re-read it
