What Is FantasyLabs
FantasyLabs offers access to a number of tools and a wealth of data and information. The tools includes player models that you can tweak to your liking easily. Player projections from pro grinders and optimized lineups calculator that works smoothly with your tweaks to build a quality lineup just to name a few.

I use the Player Models tab the most. Once you click that tab it pulls up a spread sheet listing of players sortable by many different options. I usually start by sorting by bargain players to find a few potential low cost guys for my team.
Here is a screenshot from their NBA Player Model Tools looking for bargain players.
You can look for bargain players across all positions. I find a few value players to investigate and then look at who the top projections are. Plus the way their news and trends show up when you click the player names makes it surprisingly easy to get accurate and current info on all players. You can find this info on your own for free (except for their projections) but it is all in a nice and neat package.
I used their lineup optimizer tool to help build my lineups. I especially like their bargain player tool to find discounts on DraftKings and FanDuel. or find players that many may overlook.
Without any tweaking to the model provided, this is the optimized lineup the system used:
You can exclude players or lock in players and re-run the optimizer. If you want to tweak the model used to create the lineup just click on the ‘Build’ button at the top of the lineup and it takes you back to the page where you can now tweak the numbers that matter to you. Add or remove points based on a 100 point scale to build your optimal model.
