    I guess what I am asking is to be able to cut down my lineups without having to go through all of them and identify which ones I do not want to enter. A delete button would be a very helpful solution for people who hand build lineups. It would also be nice to be able to see the players in your lineups on the contest page in the app (similar to how you can see them in the lineups page) instead of having to click on each lineup entered in the contest to figure out what lineup you are trying to change. Using the lineups page to manually edit doesn’t work when you are trying to edit a lineup in 1 contest but it is entered in multiple.

    The best way I’ve found to deal with this issue:

    Go to lineups page.
    Select lineup you don’t want; click edit.
    Import lineup you do want; save.
    This brings up all (if any) contests lineup was entered in. If you want the lineup deleted; save all. Otherwise, pick and choose.

    Thanks. My main issue is if I want to change the lineup in 1 contest but not in another. The only way to do this is to hunt through all of the entered lineups in the contest and hope to find the one you are trying to change. Also if you are entering a 20 max and build more than 20 lineups it would be much easier to be able to delete lineups until you are back down to 20 than to have to search through them to check off the ones you want. For example I could easily build 10 variations of a lineup and only want to enter 1 or 2 of them. At this time there is no way to delete those I have decided not to enter. Not a huge deal but in my opinion some pretty simple changes would lead to a much more functional and less frustrating app experience.

    Curious did the Reigmaker change. I believe I got 5 tickets after week one for beating them all. This week I got one ticket but I had two in the milli and both entries beat both reignmakers. If I understand it is max one per user if you beat the top reignmaker now, there is no way to get multiple entries? Thanks

    I assume that if there aren’t enough MLB playoff games to reach 21 for the Ironman achievements you will reduce the target #?

    DK always aims to have your back. For any achievement program where the underlying season requires an adjustment, you can count on us to make the necessary adjustment with the best interest of our customers in mind.

    For Weeks 5 and 6 of the Reignmaker promotion, you can earn one entry when you beat the week’s top Reignmaker. You can follow along with the prizes offered each week on the Reignmakers promotional page here: https://www.draftkings.com/lp/reignmakers

    DK Live play-by-play is undergoing some maintenance related to the recent stat outages, but you can rest assured that we are working diligently to improve the overall DraftKings stat-tracking experience in the future.

    what happened to the Korean Baseball contests? Thanks and have a great day/night!

    DraftKings has made investments in redundancies for a wide variety of processes, including live statistics and scoring, to ensure minimal interruption for customers when an issue with a stat provider arises. Our Customer Experience team has been active 24-7 and responded quickly to address this issue with impacted players.

    One of the impacted sports was KBO, as a result KBO contests are on a brief pause while we work towards a resolution. We hope to have KBO back to our lobby ASAP!

    Why are there no Big 10 games on the CFB slates on Saturday? It is extremely disappointing that DK is dropping the ball this hard on CFB.

    Where’s sundays big nfl $100 single this weekend??

    Given the makeup of this week’s slate we are not going to be offering a big $100 single entry this weekend, but we anticipate this offering will return next week.

    EuroLeage is having its Covid issues as well and the big Classic is this weekend. What’s the future of EL on DK?

    The situation is fluid, however if EuroLeague games are played then we intend to plow forward. Just like the legions of EL fans, we are continuing to monitor and will adjust as needed.

    How/where do you find the teaser link @ DK sportsbook ?

    Teasers are grouped within parlays. Within the bet slip, click parlay, then click teaser underneath your bets. Currently, teasers only exist as Football, Basketball and Football/Basketball combinations.

    I have not looked through the entire thread. Has anyone brought up the issue with single entry cash games having a large amount of the same lineups entered. I have heard rumblings of some of the big sharks selling lineups???

    Is there any way to regulate this?

    This has been talked about a ton in the past few years I have been on this forum and I personally don’t think lineup selling is an issue at all when it comes to the lineup trains your seeing. Draftkings does crack down on lineup selling when they have evidence of it occurring as the best they can. A majority of lineup trains coming from the use of publicly purchased projections combined with lineup optimizers. These are legal to use per the community guidelines and when you have sometimes hundreds of users sharing the same projection models your going to land on the same lineup frequently.

    There is nothing that will ever be done to correct this issue as optimizers and projection models are a huge business for tout sites who then funnel players into DK. I have come to accept this and part of the daily research is to run the optimal lineup for the RG projections I have access to to get an idea of what many will do for the week to decide to leverage away from it to be unique while still building a solid lineup.

    Massive trains are extremely annoying in double ups which I why I stopped playing those but its actually a good thing to see in GPP’s as it is -EV to be part of these lineup trains and when you can beat them it is nice to be vaulted up the leaderboard.

    I have had great success until last year and it felt like the trains wiped me out, I don’t know. I was at the point of wagering approx $500 per week and profiting leading up to last last year but last year killed me. So far this year very profitable but I have have been borderline on line cash line payouts and cashing but wondering if I should get out while ahead and jump to another site that may be more profitable over the long haul.

  • dmac37

    Bottom line is I trust over the long haul I have the skills and knowledge to win but these trains have changed the landscape…….

    I’m not a GPP guy as I really just want to keep winning at a minimal level in cash games….

    Same preference for cash games over GPPs and same frustration with the trains… sure it feels good when you beat them, but having the 3rd highest score but finishing 8/10 is just demoralizing when you spend time hand building lineups and know that those ahead of you just paid for a projection/lineups and only spent 30 seconds on their entry.

    Anyway, how do you feel about H2Hs? I switched to mostly H2H games several weeks ago and (small sample size alert) my ROI is up and I think there are a couple reasons for this…

    1. The rake is slightly less (I think)
    2. I’m more inclined to spread the risk…if I were going to play a single $20 50/50 I’ll instead play 10 $2 games or 20 $1 (I realize I could have done this with the traditional 50/50s, but for sure reason I’m more likely to do so with H2Hs)
    3. It’s easier to pick my opponents. I don’t have the time or data to single out opponents that I want to seek out, but I have started to compile a list of those I’ve seen on these trains and will actively avoid them.

    My biggest sport is hockey, so I’m playing light at the moment, but I think that with proper tracking on my part H2H might be a better bet than my normal 50/50s for next season.

    I have done HTH but this seems to be a bit of luck compared to cash games games IMO. I just feel that placed on a level playing field I will profit in cash over the long haul but these trains have changed the landscape. I’m winning this year but in reality I have noticed that I’m just barely clearing the profit line, in years past I was usually in the top 30%.
