    In the interest of allowing all players to make use of the new rules regarding “script” automation, we’ve got our first-draft, automation tool ready to be demo’ed by anyone interested in bulk entering lineups on DraftKings. This first iteration tool supports importing a CSV into the DraftKings “My Lineups” page. We have plans to allow the entering of lineups directly into contests and plans to allow the editing of a set of lineups you have already entered. Everyone give a big virtual high-five to @nicslim for his work on this.

    To get started Install the RotoGrinders DraftKings chrome extension here

    A Firefox extension is coming soon as well, but still has to go through the review process.

    UPDATE: Our Firefox extension is still not approved, but for any of you that want to try this extension out in Firefox, you can go ahead and install it at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/rotogrinders-draftkings-tools/, you’ll just see a short warning that the extension has not yet been approved by Firefox.

    The following video gives a complete walkthrough for how this extension works.

    Thanks, guys, and let us know what you think!

    A few other tidbits:

    • We also plan on releasing a FanDuel version of this extension to facilitate the bulk entering of lineups. This extension will end up a bit different since FanDuel doesn’t currently allow bulk editing of lineups.
    • We’ve added an “Export to CSV” option to our DraftKings Lineup Builder Tool. This button will allow you to “heart-select” your favorite lineups and export them to CSV for use in this extension. We have a lot of ideas for improvements for our Lineup Builder that will let people construct teams in a variety of different ways, and this export option will come in handy for any teams you’d like to bulk enter.

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS Jays and rotogrinders deliver Christmas in july :)

    CALLING DK REP This should be advertised for free in the DK Playbook , RG stepping up with a free tool that does something that should have been built into the DK website if they wanted to keep the volume it creates.

    Who knows maybe ESPN will step up with more free advertising for RG.

    HIgh five!

  • Syko

    Haven’t even watched the video yet but props to RG for making this happen so quick. Really didn’t expect to see anything this early.

    edit: After watching the video, the “Did you mean?” feature is definitely the sexiest thing about this. Great work!

    Nice job, Riley.

    Thankfully, Chris Young is no longer starting for Kansas City — might have caused an infinite loop!

    But alas, now we have Aaron Brooks

    This is phenomenal. This makes my idea of mass entering the tournament on DK week 1 NFL much more viable. Thank you very much.

    100% correct

  • rotomonkey83

    Great job getting this out so quickly guys. I love that the RG dev team is always on top of things.

  • Putz

    Works for all sports? CFB? (Edit: after watching the video you can choose the option for the sport/contest slate you want to import)

    Has this been approved by DK? I forget which site required approval before using.

    You haven’t been paying attention to the reasons many had beef with this. I’ll spare everyone a debate on your ignorance by simply stating that this is now freely available to all, leveling the playing field for mass entry, and it is now acceptable to use per DK TOS.

    Thanks RG.

    You….are….THE….man. This will be awesome. Hopefully some of us will be able to take on/down max now.
