    With NHL having a smaller budget than sports like NFL and NBA, we are only offering Core, GPP and Value in the LU HQ tool, with Core mostly being a cash game player pool. However, these are still your core plays on any given night. With bigger slates ahead it won’t be as obvious.

    For the past week and a half the LineupHQ tool has not been working correctly. If you try to create one or more stacks, it will force whatever QBs you chose into 100% of your lineups, regardless of what percentage you chose for the stack. Can someone please look into this? I’ve tried contacting support for a week now with no response.

    There is at least one player missing from LineupHQ that is active on tonight’s slate. Mike Reilly, defenseman, is active for Montreal tonight. He is available on FanDuel.

    I understand NHL has a lower budget but please, could there at least be an option to add a “custom” player to the list? Just a dummy name like “unlisted player” and letting us set their salary would probably be enough.

    One more NHL request – can you add projected line and PP1 / PP2 (currently on the starting lineups page) as column options? Would be great to not have to flip back and forth.

    What is the best way to approach stacking in NHL LineupHQ?

  • dolphinkick182

    Could you make LineupHQ only generate line-ups that will land me in 1st thru 5th place? That’d save me so much time. Got a kid on the way soon and I won’t have much research time. Well that’s not really true, I could do what I usually do, but then all of my entry fees would instead go to support. So 1st though 5th would fit perfect for me. Thanks RG!!!!! I’ll buy you a beer with my winnings, but I most likely won’t be able to drink it with you!

    Is there a way to have your player pool remembered from computer to computer? Really would like to work on stuff during the week from my work computer and the tweak everything at home on Saturday. Is this possible with premium?

    Hi, I’m quoting Ross as he replied to a similar question before with the following here: https://rotogrinders.com/threads/lineup-hq-thread-2664530?page=1#reply-2669785

    “In the future we hope to have an option to save your builds between devices or browsers, but currently that is not possible. This is due to user privacy concerns with settings and lineups. All user settings and generated lineups are saved in your local web browser storage and not anywhere in the RotoGrinders database. The “Save Settings” option will allow you to transfer your settings from one site to another in LineupHQ, but only on the current web browser you’re using.”

    I’m new to this and curious if there is a way on LineUp HQ to where i can pick all my own players i feel confident in for the weekend at every position then have the optimizer make me line ups? I know there a stack builder but that does not help with what i’m needing. There has got to be a way or video that shows me how somewhere. Any help is appreciated

    I am getting the following error in lineup hq.

    We could not find players to fill the available slots with the current remaining salary.

    I am getting this message when I try to hit optimize on a lineup. I have $4825 average remaining for 4 spots (DK main slate NFL). I have a couple of variations of a lineup I have created manually and then I simply removed 4 of the players to try to see what the projections show as optimal. It is pretty easy to fill the remaining slots with the available salary so I am not sure what is going on.

  • kujo33

    I am having a major issue with the lineup builder. When I go into my saved lineups and try to manually swap players the player does not change. I am clicking the swap the the right of the player name and then the + beside the new player to add. I was trying to do this while having the lineups filtered by a player. Now when I remove the player filter I find out that it has swapped that player into completely different lineups than I was looking at changing with the filter. I now have a bunch of lineups that don’t make sense and I have to figure out which players were changed. If someone could look into fixing this it is very frustrating. I had 20 lineups ready to go and now half of them have upwards of 4000 remaining because my intended swap of two 4k players has resulted in 8k players being replaced by 4k players seemingly at random.

    Is it possible to export all the projections in LineupHQ to csv (or similar) to be able to use offline?

    The projections are exportable on the actual projections page. Click the sports radio button at the top of this page, click ‘See All Featured’ and find the projections radio button. There’s a ‘Download as CSV’ option.

    I find the interface very clunky. It’s basically unusable on mobile and even using a mouse, half the time you click the wrong thing by accident.

    Take this all with a grain of salt though as I don’t use it often (use as supplemental when my own stuff throws me a curveball and want to see wisdom of the crowd) so haven’t really developed any relevant skills for it – but no other online optimizer ever makes me curse out loud and try to undo what I just did

    that and I’m really curious about the projections fueling it and how they are created

  • srand3

    Not seeing Monday night Showdown slates available on Lineup HQ. Normal?

  • 2Slik

    Please consider an option with NBA FD LUHQ that says X (typically 1 or 2) players for each lineup to be under X salary. I think this will be a highly desired strategy due to the new rules that would be beneficial to have asap.

  • mtdurham

    I cant figure out what the heck is going on…. this is for tongihts NBA showdown slate.

    1) I tried manually typing in all my projections… i was almost done and suddenly players started randomly disappearing… they werrent in liked, excluded, nowhere….i had to reset completely… frustrating.

    What might cause a player to vanish into the abyss like that?

    2) I tried to upload projections… first of all the players arent in any kind of order on the CSV file so it takes forever to do that… then i uploaded and it just seemed to pick and choose which projections it wanted to accept and which ones it didnt… mainly it doesnt appear to want us to enter projections for the captain spot?

    Very confused… i use lineup HQ all the time for baseball and football so fairly familiar with it… i am new to trying to edit projections though… probably user error on the CSV upload…any advice/troubleshoot?

    3) I wanted to add a player or two that you didnt include in the shwodown slate… doesnt appear to be possible? I tried to use the “add player without a projeciton” button and nothing…

    Hi, so sorry for the issue you encountered. I’ll address them with the numbers you used.

    1) We haven’t heard any other reports of this happening, so we’ll have to investigate some more and try to reproduce the issue to understand how to fix it. Please message me if you run into this problem again along with any steps I can use to reproduce the problem.

    2) The projections upload doesn’t look at the CPT projections and will look at the regular version of the player and automatically add 1.5x that player’s projection for the captain version of the player. We have some overall improvements to the projections UI that should be coming out within the next few days that will also hopefully reduce that confusion. Regarding the order of the players in the CSV, what kind of order would be useful for you?

    3) The “Add a Player” options should be appearing now. Thank you for the heads up on that!

    1) Hmmm.. I’m really not sure… One time I was editing a guys minutes and he just disappeared off the screen… it just happened a third (possibly 4th) time so I’ve reset the lineup HQ again… every tiime i think Im done one of the guys just disappears… i dont really know how else to explian it but i doubt im the only one this is happening to… like the guy will still show up as a captain option but he’s gone from utility… or vice versa… and ive checked the lineup builder each time and he’s not “locked” in either…

    2) Having the guys listed in order of salary would be helpful to me, not sure if thats the case for everyone but that’s how I have them listed on my model/projections…

    Most importantly…. that makes no sense for the captains projections, thats a giant problem that needs to be addressed… i shouldnt have to go in and manually replace all the captain projections because its calculating them incorrectly…

    let’s just assume hypothetically my projections were spot on….
    If i leave it as is it will build all losing lineups! Because it’s calculating 1.5x captain based on Rotogrinders projections and 1.0x utility based on mine.

    Thats no good. It needs to be aligned so that if you upload good projections it will build good lineups. As of right now crossing them up basically assures your lineup cant win if the projections you upload are good…

    Im really glad i caught that fatal flaw in the program. I hope my opponents are not so lucky :)

    Anyway i guess i can manually upload today… the problem lies i was planning on playing 150 lineups…. if at the last minute someone decides to play/not play it will take way too long to upload all new captain projections manually…

    also there are a handful of players like diallo and felton where the capt/flex are backwards on the CSV file… i went in and manually corrected them but if anyone else is using this they need to do that

    @mtdurham I think this video will help you upload your own projections, though the interface is now different.

    https://rotogrinders.com/videos/rotogrinders-lineuphq-tutorial-customizing-projections-2475533

    The fpts column that you see on my spreadsheet at the 1:20 mark in the video is just a VLOOKUP function that uses the player name to look up the fantasy points I have calculated in another part of my spreadsheet and pulls it into the list. I just download the template, copy the name column and paste in my spreadsheet and then copy the fpts column in my spreadsheet into the template, save, and upload to LineupHQ. Hope this helps! Only the player name column is required in the csv template. When we cannot detect a player_id column, we will attempt to match the player based on name. If the name on your CSV differs from what is in LineupHQ, we will attempt to find similar matches. For unmatched rows, players with the most similar names are displayed as options. You can also search for a player to match or skip the row entirely.

    This issue should be fixed as of this morning, according to the LineupHQ tech’s.

    There is no longer a Lineup HQ for EL. I know it only supported averages, but i used to load in my own projections. If we dont subscribe to the marketplace CFB content we cant use the Line Up HQ at all? I’m all about purchasing certain subscriptions, if i find them helpful, but I was pretty sure I already paid for access to Line up HQ, being a premium member.
