    Check out the Lineup Builder updates!

    Just in time for the start of NBA season we have added an editable projected minutes column for NBA! When you edit the minutes, it will automatically update the projected points for you as well. Just like projected points, projected minutes is available for all users for FanDuel and DraftKings and premium subscribers for others sites. We have also added the ability to bring in projections from expert models that you subscribe to in the DailyMarketplace and soon you’ll be able to import in projected minutes from DailyMarketplace packages such as Seige’s Tournament Tactics.

    You might also noticed that we’ve freshened up the Lineup Builder interface. We moved settings and filters into the player pool sidebar for easier access, added Vegas data columns, and totally revamped the generated lineups section. Check out the updates, let us know what you think, and keep an eye out for even more features coming soon!

    Entering DK: You can multi-enter a bunch of dummy lineups, then use DK’s Edit Lineups feature. DK requires you to download a CSV with your current entries and replace those entries with the ones that the RG Lineup Builder gives you.

    Thanks. After an entry is reserved with a dummy lineup, I need to go through one by one to replace them, right? DK doesn’t have a bulk lineup replace feature that I am overlooking, right?

    DK does have a bulk lineup replace feature that they added some months ago. Here’s a forum post I made with some instructions that should help you get started: https://rotogrinders.com/threads/new-draftkings-bulk-lineup-edit-feature-1230750

    Could really use that Late Game slate being added to the Lineup builder about now. (10/27/2016 slate)

  • Maxkim

    When sorting players by team, after I exclude a player the order the players are in jumps around. They’re still sorted by team, but within each team the players are in a different order. This makes it much more annoying to exclude all the players you don’t want, since you have to keep rechecking the order the players are in after every exclusion.

    Anything to do about this?

  • Maxkim

    I also like how the default way the players used to be listed was game by game, like the early games first, then the afternoon games, then the night games. Any way to make that a thing again?

    I am totally blind and this new update has made the lineup builder completely unusable with my screen reading software. The main issue I see is that player info is no longer displayed with the proper semantics to show up as a table with my screen reading software. This occurs in both Firefox and Chrome. With out the ability to view the data as a table the player names and projections are not correlated. I’m a server side software developer for my job so have no clue how to fix this. There are companies who’s job it is to do accessibility consulting, I suggest if Rotogrinders cares about site accessibility they look into hiring one to do a full site accessibility assessment and get Lineup builder assessed as part of that.

    What’s with all the slates not being offered anymore in the Lineup Builder? Just not going to offer it? Is it a paid thing now? People just not getting around to listing them? Loved the old Lineup Builder. Hope this one gets better.

    Hi,

    Going forward we will add the late and express slates at 2 pm daily. The times FD and DK post these slates varies day to day, so its tough to catch them right as they are posted.

    Thanks for your feedback and for highlighting accessibility, which is something we want to improve upon. Our intention was to make the lineup builder player pool more closely resemble the data grid we use on our projected stats and player stats pages. We changed this from an html table to a grid of divs so that we could allow for fixed column groups on the left and right while having a horizontally scrollable middle column. This is a nicer visual experience, but as you mentioned, removes the nice semantics of an html table. We will discuss ways we can make these grids more friendly for screen reading software.

    Are we able to export your projections via the projections.csv file, like in 2015, so that I can work on my lineups offline ?

  • Gallant03

    Your minutes projected model must be flawed. If you order by projected minutes in nba the top guys are all around min salary players who will play low 20s in minutes at most. There’s even a guy project to get 50 minutes in a basketball game. I know i am able to edit the minutes myself. Just thought i’d point this out.

    Hate hate hate the overhaul to the new lineup builder. When I try downloading the lineup all values are zero, and can’t even copy to excel from the webpage because the fields don’t allow to copy an entire column from the projections. is there a fix or workaround? If not say goodbye to me as a premium member I will have to use someone that has tools that do what they are supposed to :(

  • cmt56ss

    I had an issue earlier. I downloaded and there seemed to be excessive columns in the CSV that I downloaded. I had to re-select DK, even though the prices and positions were correct. Once I re-selected, the download was okay.

    The problem I do have, is that on 3 separate occasions this week I was updating my lineup builder and closed out for the night. The next time I logged in, all my previous selections were wiped out. All my player exposures were gone, my excluded players were not excluded and my stacks were reset from 2 days prior. Early in the week it is a work in progress, but as of last night I was all set, except for injuries and inactives. I logged in today, and had to start all over….. never before have I had an issue.

    …………………..And since they redid the LU tool, why not add like 5 more player stack options!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????????????

    We are adding the ability to have more than 5 stacks and it should be ready late next week. The recent UI changes were only the beginning of many more improvements to come :)

    Could you let us know which site/sport/slate combo you were using it for when you had trouble downloading the lineups? Just to be clear we’re talking about exporting your generated lineups to CSV in order to upload to FanDuel or Draftkings, right?

    I understand the frustration about no longer being able to easily copy a column and we’re sorry about it. But we hope that switching the player pool to the grid system that we use on our projected stats pages will allow us to also show more data in the future without cluttering the page, something that many users have requested.

  • Linsanity88

    Uploading projections doesn’t seem to be working at the moment. Clicked the upload button several times and nothing happens.

  • Corstapik

    No, I am talking about plain old downloading of the blank templates with nothing but the player names and projections (Fanduel). I then take those and use some macros I created on my own algorithms to make adjustments. Now when I DL it is all zeros. I have to go through them all one by one and copy out the projections to a spreadsheet, make my adjustments, and then enter them all again one by one. HOURS for something that took MINUTES before. :(

  • Corstapik

    Why would you guys try to make all these overhauled changes in the middle of football season for goodness sakes? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix (or in this case, BREAK) it. :(

  • jdhf

    As of right now I cannot seem to download the lineups I generated for DK FB. When i press “EXPORT LINEUPS TO CSV” nothing happens…… No notification from browser of a download and no new cvs file in download folder. Anybody else? I’m using Chrome with RG extension.

  • inittobinkit

    I can’t create lineups… Just giving me Josh McCown and Donte Moncrief as players for the main slate lol.

  • Gallant03

    Do you ever plan on offering the Mon-Thurs NFL Slate?

  • franciscolora

    The export format for Draftkings is wrong (at least for today’s NBA slate). I’m trying to edit my lineups but the format, once exported to CSV, is wrong. DK isn’t accepting that format.

    It’s a priority of ours and we’re discussing the best way to do it since the change to get that support in lineup builder will also affect many of our others pages and tools.

    Sorry for the export troubles. What is the error message DK is giving you when uploading? If it’s possible for you to send a CSV with a couple of rows later after lineups lock, that would be super helpful. Send it to support@rotogrinders.com and let them know to forward it to me. Thanks!
