I'm trying to understand something.


Are there "better" projections if looking under daily tools/daily projections vs rankings/daily projections or are they the same source?

I don't plan to play any of the daily games like fanduel etc but am in a espn roto league with daily lineup changes.  As you can tell my team is sort of beat to hell at the moment so I'm trying to make the most of a bleak situation by streaming my last few roster spots with high quality matchups.  

If I'm not at the upgraded level am I missing out on anything different?  Just a suggestion but it might be helpful to show it better somewhere what the difference actually is as to me in my mind I only need the higher membership if I'm joining one of those daily sites otherwise the basic membership works fine. 

Thanks in advance your site has helped me when back to back championships (Miguel Cabrera helped too) but I've got a lot of work to do if I want to 3 peat!

The projections are not "better", no. They're using the same projections source and both have access to our in-house "Monster Factors". The biggest difference is that the daily membership offers projections customized to each site (DraftStreet, Fanduel, DraftKings), gives you a lineup building tool, and uses the site pricing to calculate the best value plays on a given day. That, among some additional features, is the difference. But if you're in a full-season league on CBS, ESPN, or Yahoo! and are just looking for streaming options then the daily projections under the 'Rankings' tab will suit you just fine.

Looks like J. Gyorko, M. Montero, G. Springer, T. Frazier, A. Ogando can be streamed.

You have 5 options everyday to rotate based on daily projections.

Are you in a limited inning league and waiver league?

yes 1500 gp and 1300 innings. waivers are only 2 days so I stream quite a bit.

Thanks for the answer just wanted to make sure i was using the best data daily.  I did trade Marte for Prado to shore up 2b and add position flexibility while Zobrist is out.  I might need to find some more hr/rbi's with Beltran's injury worrying me right now.
