FanDuel: How to get help creating your lineup

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Here are a couple of tools to help you create your FanDuel lineup.

As you probably know by now, and how couldn't you since I've been bombarding you with links, SBNation has partnered up with FanDuel to bring you another option to satisfy your fantasy baseball cravings.

I'm not much of a daily player, I tend to look at player performance over the entire season.  However, when you sign up for one of FanDuel's leagues, the entire season has nothing to do with your selections, you'll need to know how a player performs head-to-head for that day's game only.  So I went looking for help.

My first find was the website Fantasy Alarm.  This site features a ton of fantasy tools, including daily matchup data, projections, and head-to-head information for each player.  Also, it provides weather information for each game, a useful bit of information as you don't want to select a player whose game gets rained out.

Baseball Press is my goto site for MLB lineups.  Next to a game getting postponed, selecting a player who's not even playing is embarrassing and costly.  I don't know how they do it, but Baseball Press has the lineups before anyone else.

Finally, I found this app to help me select my nine players: Set Lineup.  It's a Google app used on your smartphone that was created specifically for creating a FanDuel lineup.  Input the MLB games used in the daily game you've picked, and the app will create the best lineup.

I entered three different games on Wednesday.  I played a head-to-head $5 game against some other player, winner gets $9.  A $5 50/50 game of 40 entries that paid the top 20 $9 each.  And a "normal" $2 tournament that paid the winner $50.  How'd I do?  Using the Set Lineup mentioned above, this is the team I entered in each of the contests:

Yep, I scored 7.25 points and finished in last in all the games.  The team Set Lineup created looked pretty good, but with the exception of Jose Abreu, every player tanked.

FanDuel is hosting a one day, $18,000 fantasy baseball league for tonight's games. It's just $2 to join and the top prize is $2,000. Here's the link
