My idea was simple. Bundle the best premium fantasy baseball sites into one subscription. Then offer them for over 70% off. Whether you want to make big money at daily fantasy or just talk trash from 1st in season long, these sites are the best of the best. 70+ expert league titles and big money daily wins. 60+ FSWA & FSTA Awards. 6 different FSWA Hall of Famers.
I'm putting my name on this because I know the quality of the rankings, analysis, tools, draft software, apps and alerts of these sites. These are the sites and lineup tools I use and you should too. So click the boxes below to learn more about the individual sites in the Ultimate Fantasy Baseball Resource.

If you've ever listened to my podcast, read my columns, followed me on Twitter or read my book Fantasy Life, you know I love Rotowire.com. And I'm not alone. Everyone loves Rotowire and their 24 / 7 / 365 source of real time fantasy sports news and analysis. When I say everyone, I mean everyone.
They are the official player news provider for us at ESPN. And for Yahoo! And FoxSports.com. They host an extremely popular daily show on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio. And if you think it's just huge sports media companies that love them, think again. No website has won more Fantasy Sports Writers Association awards than Rotowire.com. Yes, Rotowire is known for more than just breaking fantasy news.
Their robust fantasy baseball draft kit features customizable rankings/auction values for whatever kind of league you play in. You get their free, downloadable draft software. Over 1,000 player projections, sleepers, busts, minors to watch and so much more.
Lead by FSWA Hall of Famer Jeff Erickson and industry legend Chris Liss, Rotowire has over 30 different FSWA awards, including many Writer of the Year awards and another FSWA Hall of Famer in Peter Schoenke. They've won too many expert leagues to mention and their subscribers win as well.
I bring up the quality of their fantasy advice because it's important you know how good it is, since you'll be getting it at all hours, on every device you own. With their watch list feature, you can get instant email updates or text alerts on YOUR players. No more scrolling through twitter or websites trying to find news about your player. Rotowire sends you instant updates on ONLY the guys you care about.
With their popular Ask an Expert feature, you'll get personal responses to your questions. And if you play fantasy football, you'll have access to Rotowire's customizable draft kits, draft software and player news for football as well. In fact, you'll have access to Rotowire for every sport. So go ahead, sign up for a fantasy college football, hoops, hockey, golf, NASCAR, or soccer league. Rotowire has you covered. They were one of the first calls I made when I started the original RotoPass, they were one of the first calls I made when I got to ESPN and no matter where I go or what I do, they will always be one of my first calls. Soon, they'll be one of yours as well.

Ok, yes, I'm a company man but the truth of it is... ESPN Insider rocks. Bringing you comprehensive, forward-looking sports and fantasy coverage, Insider merges a deep team of the best experts with cutting-edge tools.
Every day, ESPN Insiders get direct access to the best analysts and reporters in sports today, including the must read daily blogs of Buster Olney and FSWA Hall of Famer Eric Karabell, not to mention the best prospect guy in the business, Keith Law, plus FSWA Hall of Famer Tristan H. Cockcroft. Those four, frankly, should be enough, but there's so much more. Expert analysis, advanced player performance metrics, in-depth scouting knowledge and even the latest rumors.
Customizable auction values and rankings specific to your league settings, Insider Recommends and Roster Advisor are among the many tools at your disposal along with dedicated blogs for daily recommendations.
And while fantasy baseball is a main focus for you, getting an ESPN Insider subscription through RotoPass also gives you expert analysis for every sport. You get to read Adam Schefter, Ron Jaworski, and Bill Polian for NFL, Mel Kiper Jr and Todd McShay for draft day, all the recruiting news you need, no matter what school you root for, Chad Ford and Kevin Pelton on the NBA, Jay Bilas and Jeff Goodman on college hoops. College football from Travis Haney, Brian Griese and Phil Steele, plus Craig Custance on the NHL, and even Vegas insider Chad Millman and others sharpening your bets.

So I'm pretty sure the subscribers to Fantasy Insiders hate me. Because by putting them in RotoPassBaseball, their secret weapon is now not so secret. You may never have heard of them, but trust me, you need to know these guys. Leading the charge is 2013 and 2015 daily fantasy Accuracy Champion Dan Gaspar (MrTuttle05), who has made 14 live event finals as a DFS pro. Also included on the site is 2014 daily fantasy Accuracy Winner David Kitchen (SocrDave, member of the DraftKings Analyst Team, 2013 Field of Dreams champion), Ben Pritchett, Davis Mattek, Dave Loughran, Sammy Reid, and Dan Strafford. It's no wonder Fantasy Insiders has won multiple awards in accuracy competitions, including being named The Most Accurate Daily Fantasy Site.
Every single day, RotoPassBaseball subscribers will get access to the Fantasy Insiders Interactive Cheat Sheets, featuring tiered plays based on price, with appropriate labels for each player and what type of lineup that player is best suited. This is a mobile responsive tool that allows you to view on your mobile device in addition to your desktop. Their Expert Daily Rankings are sortable by category (Positions, Top Play, Value Play, Expert, Overall), while their Advanced Lineups Page goes in depth by adding advanced filters. Sort by position, Vegas O/U, handedness, recommended plays, and different site salary to highlight players in the lineup that cater to what your roster needs and in whatever contest you are entering that night, on whichever site you choose to play on. Once you try it, you'll quickly see why Adam Goulet, the winner of a DraftKings 1 Million Dollar Championship and multiple live finals appearances, said "Fantasy Insiders is instrumental in all of my daily research."

Remember the book "Tuesdays with Morrie"? Well, I should call this section "Tuesdays (and Fridays) with Money." Veteran daily baseball players know the best days to play are Tuesdays and Fridays. Those are the days with the most baseball games, so those are the days with the biggest tournaments and qualifiers to the live events on the various sites. Tuesdays and Fridays are the "money days" and that's why DailyRoto.com (the daily off-shoot of the popular RotoExperts site) gives RotoPassBaseball subscribers everything they can handle on those two days throughout the MLB season.
The Daily Analysis product includes in depth analysis of the best top, value and cheap daily fantasy plays across the industry for that particular day. The best part of DailyRoto.com is that they don't just tell you who to start but they also teach along the way, as users will be taught the best processes for picking players in daily fantasy.
Their site specific cheat sheets for DraftKings and FanDuel is a downloadable Excel file that includes the best value and large field tournament plays to utilize on that specific day, with their favorite plays highlighted. The cheat sheets allow subscribers to narrow their focus on a particular day and avoid making selections that do not provide value.
In addition to all that, RotoPassBaseball subscribers also get their lineup alerts. Up until 15 minutes before MLB rosters lock on Tuesdays and Fridays, subscribers will get emails with up to the minute analysis of breaking injury/playing time/weather news and commentary on how that news will affect the day’s daily fantasy games.
The old saying goes "Put your money where your mouth is" and the team at DailyRoto.com have done just that. Lead by Drew Dinkmeyer, the 2014 DraftKings Millionaire Maker Winner. That's right. You're getting advice from a MILLIONAIRE. WHO BECAME ONE THROUGH DAILY FANTASY. It wasn't just one lucky contest for Drew, though. He's shown consistent success in daily, becoming a finalist for big money live events six different times and showing so much success the Wall Street Journal did a feature story on him. His partner Mike Leone is a 3-time daily fantasy Baseball Champion, winning the 2012 DraftStreet Championship, the 2013 StarStreet PFBC and the 2013 FanThrowdown Grand Slam, while finishing as a finalist in FanDuel's 2014 FDBC and DraftStreet's 2013 DSBBC.
Three - count 'em - three different DailyRoto.com subscribers won $1 million dollars in the DraftKings Millionaire Maker tournaments while other subscribers have qualified for live finals in the Bahamas, Las Vegas and the Playboy Mansion. A 2014 FSTA nominee for best Fantasy Service/Tool, DailyRoto.com puts money in your pocket.
