2. Roto Tracker
Roto Tracker allows you to upload and analyse your DFS results from multiple DFS sites with just a few clicks. They currently supports FanDuel, DraftKings, Yahoo and DraftDay. With RotoTracker you can see how well you’ve performed with advanced reporting, filtering and charts. No other DFS bankroll tracking tool has the breadth and depth you need to drill down in your results and really understand your performance.
3. Super Lobby
The SuperLobby shows you all the upcoming contests at all the major Daily Fantasy Sports operators. Just like the lobbies for FanDuel and DraftKings, players can sort contests across both sites using a variety of criteria.
There are also a few options you won’t find at the lobbies at FanDuel and DraftKings:
Rake: The lobby tells players what percentage of each entry fee goes to the site itself.
Overlay: If a contest features a guaranteed prize pool, the lobby tells players how far under the guarantee the contest is.
A tracker at the top of the website also keeps tabs on the total amount of guaranteed prize pools available across both sites, as well as the total amount of overlay across all contests.
4. Roster Nerds
Roster Nerds is a DFS lineup optimizer for NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, and even college football and college basketball. They currently support FanDuel, DraftKings, and Draft Day. You can lock or block players, pick a timeframe of games, or search for your favorite players.
Rotoguru is a great resource to see who the leading DFS scorers were the night before. You can even go further back to a certain date and see how a certain player performed.
Fantasy Cruncher offers a variety of different tools for DFS players. Their free tool that is very useful is the lineup rewind, which lets you look into yesterdays lineup to see what the perfect lineup looked like. With this info you can see what the player mix was..(Was it well balanced? How many bargain plays were used if any? Who shows up consistently? etc.)
Lineup Chatter provides a place to consolidate all of your DFS lineup information into one central place using a crowd-sourced method, categorizing the information by player and by league.

It’s a lot easier to catch a note about a last minute lineup change without all the clutter.
