    The Extender (Team RG)

    We’re pleased to announce that our FanDuel extension for Chrome now supports automated lineup entry! If you haven’t installed it yet, you can do so “here”: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/rotogrinders-fanduel-tool/felhhccenjfgepphdanniaeclbjhklca

    Entering multiple lineups on FanDuel works much like it does with our DraftKings Extension. The main difference is that you have to select the contest you wish to enter. Once on that contest’s lineup creation page, there will be a “RotoGrinders Import” link that you can click to start the import process.

    You can upload a csv exported from the RG Lineup Builder or your own csv provided it has the same format. The extension will do its best to detect any name mismatches and provide you with alternatives. Uploading a csv enters those lineups into the contest you are currently viewing.

    Take it for a spin and let us know what you think. Per FanDuel’s terms, this extension is allowed to automate bulk entering of lineups, however automated withdrawal and editing are currently prohibited.

    Notes:

    *You may have to go to chrome://extensions and manually update the extension (version 2.3)

    *The Firefox version of the extension should have this feature in the next 1-2 weeks.

    *See @Riley’s post learn more about the DraftKings version of the extension

    Awesome! Just used it for 50 LU’s and worked perfectly. However…I guess I’m either missing something or stating the obvious, but if all you can do is use the extension for bulk entering ‘new’ contests, I don’t see any benefit. For me, even in baseball, setting lineups too early is not a winning proposition. I always wait until all the information comes out (like starting LU’s!) and then enter lineups on Fanduel. Obviously the GPP tournaments would be full if I tried to use this tool with that process. Might the tool be able to overwrite dummy lineups, or is Fanduel saying that’s a “no-no”?

  • topscout

    I watched the video and still have a few issues when trying it
    Does it only work for GPP? in other words you cant enter all the open 50/50 contests its just for multi entry to gpp?

    Also when i saved my 10 lineups to saved lineups 1 i went back next time and Favorited some other guys and did saved lineups 2

    However when i uploaded saved lineups 2 it had saved lineups 1 added to it so i now had 2x as many lineups as i wanted.

    Also does it work for any other sports?

    @topscout, yes this tool is primarily for entering multiple (different) lineups into a single contest (so it’s intentional that the CSV contains multiple lineups). It works with all sports as long as you have a CSV with names of players in the order they appear on a daily fantasy roster for that given sport.

    @rsigler65, FD does not currently allow automatic editing of lineups, so this tool is more useful for people who want to enter starter/filler lineups based on initial research and information. As news changes, you will still want to go in and make edits to your teams. Since DK does allow bulk editing, our DK version of this tool will facilitate this process. (You could, for example, have several backup CSV files pre-generated and ready for different scenarios of news items that may break during the day, and bulk replace a set of lineups in a contest with one of your pre-generated sets after the news breaks.)

    Should not be allowed IMO, but at least since it is now everyone has access to it.

  • topscout

    When I generate my lineups in the ‘Lineup Builder’ and select Lineups CSV, all that comes up is a blank excel sheet. How can I fix that?

    We don’t currently support CFB, but that is coming soon this season. Lineup builder will also support NFL this season. That will be ready when our projections are live.

    How do you set a new team?

    When I enter – the first row imports properly but the second row (my 2nd team) doesn’t. How do I fix this?

  • TheGreatPSalant

    @Riley How would you target specific entries to edit with the DK tool? For example, if I had 100 different lineups entered in a multi-entry double up, and another 100 different lineups entered in a GPP (total of 200 unique lineups) and I only wanted to edit my GPP lineups with a new 100-row CSV file, how could I do that? From what I’ve seen, the DK tool does an excellent job entering lineups, but with no regard to the contest or any specific entry/entries. The only use case I’ve been able to run with the DK tool has been for initial lineup entry, prior to submitting them into any contest.

    nicslim – are both of these working for dk and fd for mac?

    I saw some other chrome extensions having issues for players in mac so I wanted to make sure before I dug in. Thanks!

  • CatheGreat
