    The Extender (Team RG)

    Hey everyone, we’re excited to roll out our “Swap Shop” entries manager for LineupHQ. With late swap coming back to DK for this NBA season, we wanted to make sure that our premium members had a way to quickly edit entered lineups, taking into account locked in players, when last-minute news breaks.

    How does it work?

    Loading Your CSV:

    1. With DraftKings selected as your site, go to Manage Entries.
    2. Use our shortcut link to download your CSV for the currently selected slate directly from Draftkings.
    3. Drag your CSV to the upload box or click the upload box to select your CSV.

    After Your CSV Has Loaded:

    4. Slots with players whose games have started will have a red lock icon.
    5. Select lineups that you would like to rebuild using the checkbox.
    6. Click the search icon to view the entries that use this lineup. The checkboxes next to each entry let you use a new lineup for each checked entry when you rebuild lineups.
    7. Click Rebuild Lineups to overwrite the selected lineups and entries with new lineups using your current player pool and settings. Players who have started will remain locked in their slots.
    8. Export an updated entries CSV and upload on the “Edit Entries” screen on the Draftkings Lineups page.

    Important: This feature is in Beta mode. Please have a back-up plan for editing your entries. Showdown slates are not currently supported. We will be working on Showdown support, along with FanDuel support in the coming days.

    Let us know what you think and if you have any questions or suggestions. Thanks!

    Only for premium members? :(

  • StevieBrown

    Amazing work! Essential tool that we’ll all (unfortunately) need to use lol

  • KindGuy

    Can you guys PLEASE allow us to add players that are excluded from the player pool yet have a DK salary? Better yet, STOP excluding them in the first place!

    We have an option below the player pool that says “Add a Player without a Projection” that should accomplish this for you

    Yes, I tried opening that up last night but no options were listed.

    Credit where credit is due. I havent used it yet but this is a gamechanging addition to your lineup HQ.

    I was in a funk last night and I offered a lot of criticism that was not constructive. It was absolutely valid, but not constructive.

    You can’t improve your product if people just file directionless complaints and don’t offer suggestions on how to improve. So for that I apologize.

    If this feature works at all, it’s worth the price of the subscription alone.

    Rotogrinders is one of the best values on the internet, period. It’s just not the be all, end all that people (myslef included) want it to be.

    It’s not as easy as saying “I dont like Eli Manning, pressing “Build lineup”, and uploading a $1,000,000 winner.

    There’s more nuance to it than that. I appreciate the ROtogrinders product and recommend it to anyone not currently subscribing to premium. It offers enough tools, content, etc to make it worth anyone’s while.

    Sometimes we all get a little too close to the chalkboard and miss a negative sign in the equation and it leaves us with an irrational number.

    QQ- Can this also be used for NFL, CFB or any sport that features late swap? And if yes, then does it work for Fanduel also?
    Awesome tool guys. Keep pumping out the good stuff!

    It can be used for any DK sport. FD is not currently supported but we plan on supporting it in the near future.

    I cant quite figure out the lineup builder….

    Lets say I have a 5 man core i want to use and then build several dif combos around it from my existing player pool…. ill have it build 40 rosters and if i leave the box checked for “player exposures constant while building” it will say 0 or 1 lineup produced…. if i uncheck the box it will usually produce 30-40 but now im worried about the diversifciation of the lineups.. i.e. i dont want it to pair Star A with Punt A everytime… id’ like Star A with punt A,B, & C…

    Then lets say i have a 5 man Core where ideally I’d like 4 of those 5 guys in every lineup…. that way if Im wrong on one selection or if one guy gets hurt my entire night isnt ruined….. so it seems like I could set those guys to 80% each… and that would take care of it…. but when i set everyone to 80% it never returns more than like 60%…. which means that a lot of lineups are being produced without at least 4 of those guys…. .which i do not want….

    Then let’s say I want guys to retain their multipositional flexibility…. If i “lock” them in then they’re at that position only…which is obviously no bueno…. but if i put them at say 99% on the slider bar (so they arent LOCKED into only PG, SG, SF, PF, or C..) they don’t show up in anywhere near every lineup…

    It’s a daily connudrum for me… i just cant get it to produce the lineups i want… the issue with lineup builders is that they always want to force in 2 studs/2 scrubs because they are using the projections….but i dont want that… frankly… i wish it would optimize without using hte projections at all and just trust that I have selected the player pool i want…

    there ought to be a way i can set a core and then optimize around it…. and ensure that i get proper diversity… it does me no good to play 40 lineups with exposure to the right player pool…if i dont have every scrub/star pairing…. and then 3-4 variations of that 7 man combo with differeing 8th men…

    If you want 4 of those 5 in every lineup your best bet is to make a group that does that in the player groups portion
