We have evaluated more projectors than we care to admit. From some of the best to some of the worst. There is no shortage of projection providers out there… but when it comes to correlation to actuals, we have done all of the hard work for you. In our opinion, these are the 2 best projectors available for NFL.
4for4 is considered by many to be the very best NFL projector in the business. They have been ranked #1 overall by fantasy pros for over 5 years running. Some projectors get lucky for one season. Not these guys. To be this accurate every year is, well, astonishing.
DFSR focuses on Daily Fantasy only. They specialize in NBA, NFL, and MLB. DFSR users have had several very recent GPP wins (several 1st place finishes among 44,000 other entries) in MLB, and the DFSR owners themselves made it to the Draftkings NBA Championship in San Diego earlier this year. Words cant describe how excited we are to be using them.
Besides the difference in projection sources, the rest of the features will be the same. The diversity features, locking, limits, csv downloads, etc will all be unlocked and fully usable. But the projection data will depend on who you select.
Also, if you’d like to start with one projector and then move to the other one later in the season, this is fine. Just email us! We just ask that you don’t switch more than once a month for accounting purposes.
First of all, the biggest mistake we see people make is not selecting a corresponding slate. If you are playing the 1pm Sunday slate on Fanduel, then be sure you click the 1pm Sunday Slate in Lineup Lab!
After you do this and create some lineups, you will see a download button at the top of the results page. Click it, then click ‘importable’. This will generate the Fanduel or Draftkings compliant CSV which you can take directly to their site for import.
In Fanduel, when you are at the screen to choose players for your lineup, scroll to the bottom and look for the “Enter” button at the bottom. Right next to it is a small link that says “Upload Lineups from CSV”. Click this and you will be instructed to choose the CSV file for import.
In Draftkings, the process is slightly different. At the top of the screen you will see a button that says “Lineups”. Click this then click “Upload Lineups”. On the right-hand side of the screen click “Upload CSV” and select the CSV file you would like to import.
You can generate up to 50 lineups per calculation and there is no limit to the number of calculations. You can change the number of results by adjusting the “Number of Results” slider at the bottom of the optimizer. We may add this capability in the future.
