If you are a serious DFS player then Fantasy Cruncher is a must use tool!
The game is changing so much and there is a lot of good information out there which makes it harder and harder to be successful playing daily fantasy sports.
If you are a multi-entry GPP player then I don’t know how you are successful without a tool like this because not only does Fantasy Cruncher help with your teams, it saves you hours of time!
Fantasy Cruncher does have their own projections and if you want you can just click “calculate teams” and get a lineup.
Nevertheless, they don’t recommend this. What is so great is it allows you to adjust the projections for all of the players.
I personally love Fantasy Cruncher because (while it’s time consuming) I will insert all my personal projections for every player and let their software figure out the best optimal lineup based on my projections.
If you use another sites projections that you like and it’s on an excel spreadsheet, Fantasy Cruncher allows you to import them right into their site!
So you don’t have to go player by player and adjust the projections. This alone saves a lot of time and allows you to research more instead of having to perform data entry.
Great Tools & Easy To Use Interface
You can click on each player and actually see their game log and compare their play with the projections that Fantasy Cruncher has made for each player.
This allows you to see if a player is trending in the right direction and see if that player is over or under performing their projected play.
The best thing about Fantasy Cruncher is it allows you to set up your own preferences.
If you want to create 100 teams, you can do so easily.
But they take it a step further and you can decide how you want all those teams to be created.
You can lock players so they end up on all your teams if you want, or you can scratch players you don’t like and they won’t ever show up.
You can lock your core players and select how many different players you want to be on the other lineups as well.
So you can create 100 lineups and lock four player and tell cruncher to make sure there are at least four different players on every team.
You will have 100 unique teams with your four core players and all of them will have at least four different players within minutes of clicking a button.
Of course if you need to optimize just 1 lineup, you can do that too.
Precise Player Exposure Control
The other thing that I really like about Fantasy Cruncher is they allow you to control your exposure to players.
Let’s say you run you lineups and you notice that a player is on 90% of your teams.
If you don’t want that much exposure to that player, then you can change his exposure percentage and run the generator again and it will adjust your teams.
So you can determine how much exposure you want for every single player!
If there is a player you like but feel you aren’t getting enough exposure too, you can give them a thumbs up also, telling cruncher that you like this player.
It will then give you more exposure to him.
This saves you HOURS of time because you don’t need to hand write all these teams which would take you tons of time.
Export Your Lineups Directly to DraftKings or FanDuel
This is huge and saves you tons of time because once you create your teams, you don’t have to enter each lineup on to FanDuel or DraftKings player by player.
For DraftKings, you just export the lineups and they show up on your “my lineups page” and then you can click on a tournament and enter them all at once.
FanDuel is a little different because they don’t have a “my lineups” page so you need to find the contest you want to play.
Fantasy Cruncher lists every contest that FanDuel has, and once you find your tournament, you select it and export.
Then when you look at your FanDuel account you will see that Fantasy Cruncher entered all the unique lineups there for you.
Again, Fantasy Cruncher does not claim to be a lineup generator and just give you winning lineups night in and night out.
You need to do the work and use this as a tool.
I do use cruncher for my cash game teams simply because it will take all my projections and give me the best optimal team without considering other things I like to use such as projected ownership rates and such.
But playing multiple teams in a GPP is huge when you have Fantasy Cruncher.
Not only does it help you create teams that you may not have come up with on your own, the time it saves is so instrumental to being a successful tournament player.
You can spend more time researching your lineups and less time entering them all into contests one by one and player by player.
It also allows you to look at everything as a whole, instead of seeing every lineup as just one lineup. Because in tournaments, the goal is to have that one lineup that is on top.
Fantasy Cruncher really helps you see the overall picture and it allows you to make changes really easy and quick.
If you are not using this site, you are behind the curve because there are thousands of people who are using it.
Get on board and catch up, then pass you competition!
