Synopsis: Billy Beane and the Oakland A's flipped Major League Baseball on its head by questioning widely accepted narratives and approaching roster construction from a scientific, data-driven viewpoint. "Moneyball" revolutionized baseball, and now it's your turn to be the GM.

Fantasy Baseball for Smart People: How to Profit Big During MLB Season is a Moneyball-esque guide to profiting big bucks from your love of fantasy sports. With analysis from top-ranked daily fantasy player CSURAM88, the book examines the advanced strategies used by daily fantasy sports professionals--the guys making hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars playing fantasy sports--to help equip you with the skill set needed to make money playing fantasy baseball.
How to Profit Big During MLB Season tackles fantasy baseball from a mathematical angle, providing you data on which strategies have actually won in the past and giving you all the information you need to gain a major edge on the field. From how to win large tournaments to which stats matter the most to how to leverage public opinion into a competitive edge, you'll learn how to use Moneyball in daily fantasy baseball to turn your love of the game into cash.
