A few weeks back, RotoBaller.com launched an exclusive Expert Picks of the Day newsletter service. The goal of this service is to provide our readers with expert player recommendations, analysis and picks for daily leagues - delivered right to their email inboxes!
How does it work? Your subscription entitles you to exclusive research and analysis performed by our staff experts, to help you win your daily league matchups. At each position, we'll give you a low-priced value pick as well as our strongest option among the higher-priced players. If you're interested in getting an edge for your daily league matchups, sign up here. You can also see how our daily picks look when you receive them, including our full analysis for each player (which isn't shown below).
Obviously we can't hit on every single pick, but the vast majority of our selections typically make strong contributions to tournament and heads-up victories for our subscribers. Below you can see our expert picks from July 9th, along with the results of each player's actual performance. As you can see, they were pretty good! Anyone who played these matchups yesterday probably won their daily leagues.
