    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!

    Is there a video that explains how to use the new lineup builder ?

    In the works :)

    Any chance under the game filters it could pull in the over/unders for the game?

    Is the lineup builder broken right now? I’m trying to generate lineups for DK NBA (7 PM slate) and one of two things happens after clicking the “Build Lineups” button:

    1. I see the progress bar that says building, but then it stops, and no lineups are generated.
    2. I get the popup “X out of 50 lineups were generated…” but then after I click OK, I don’t get taken to my lineups. When I check the “My Lineups” tab, there is nothing there.

    Update: And now, after refreshing the page, all the edits that I made to the minutes / FP projections have gone away. Extremely frustrating, to say the least.

    Sorry about the problem and for your frustration. What you’re reporting isn’t widespread, but we’ve had a few reports of similar problems and are investigating. Just curious, after you refreshed, did the same problem happen after generating lineups or were you able to see them?

    I am having same issue as Linsanity – producing x of X lineups but I cant actually see the lineups

    After refreshing a bunch it eventually worked, but I each time I refreshed I lost my manually edited projections. I actually ended up just signing up for a free trial of a different service and used that instead.

    for the second time please tell me where the projections.csv file that i can download from your site is?
    the link?

    If you go to the “Upload” tab, there is a link that says “Download this csv template” that you can click on to download the projections template.

    You should go over your target exposure for every position but QB. The salaries will not line up perfectly to get all lineups in at your set exposure. You need some flexibility in the total % number to allow it to find more combinations of lineups given non-optimal salary spread. Say you’re 80% through making the # of lineups, but the only players left that haven’t hit their exposure limits are all expensive options. It wouldn’t be able to create additional lineups, but with additional % here or there, it has more flexibility to complete all 50.

  • wwhis

    Put dummy lineups in and then edit them an hour or so before lock and put your real lineups in. The Seige has a course on how to do mass entry. $9.95 in the Market Place. Process is kind of complicated.

    Anyone else having issues with the NBA line-up builder? Keeps saying it can’t produce any line-ups and wants me to change criteria, etc. I haven’t changed how I used to use it in the past…

    Thanks

    If you’re using it for DraftKings, you may be seeing a pop-up that says you need to lock or favorite at least two players before building a lineup. This is to comply with DK’s community guidelines. We added it over the weekend. So just set an exposure or lock at least two guys in the player pool (there is a graphic about how to do that on the pop-up) and you should be set to go. If this is not the issue you’re seeing posting a screenshot or sending it to support@rotogrinders.com would be a huge help to us. Thanks!

  • maxrluminox

    Thanks, but that isn’t my problem. I will send that screen shot to support.

  • Foreverca

    love the new builder, effective and easy to use keep up the great work. also i have a suggestion for a future feature, you should put a editable Usage bar to edit the usage of players, anyways thanks and cheers.

    It moved to the player pool sidebar inside of the “Build Strategy” section. Green button that says “Build Lineups”

    I’m having a lot of problems with lineup builder as well. Stacks aren’t working. Getting huge exposure to players that I didn’t select any exposure to. The slate times are even wrong?

    What is going on here guys?

    Are you using the “Optimized” or “Tournament” build strategies? The stacks currently don’t work for the Optimized strategy, something that we’re working to support in the near future. It’s possible to get exposure to players that are in your player pool even if you haven’t set an exposure. To limit exposure to players who you haven’t “favorited”, you can set a global max exposure in the Settings section of the sidebar. You can also click the “x” to remove a player from the player pool who you don’t want to show up in any lineups.

    As for the slate times, if you let us know which ones are wrong and for which site, we’ll fix those. We have an automated import for those, but have the ability to manually edit if needed. Thanks!

    All projections are now set to zero using this method.

    This should be fixed now. Thanks for the heads up!

    Can someone give me some advice for the effective use of RG’s lineup builder for NFL GPP’s?

    I spent a lot of time selecting player exposures, trying different variances etc. and I’m getting garbage lineups. I’m not getting the player exposures I want, getting too much exposure of players who I didn’t select for exposure etc.

    I’ve created my own player pool but I want to try the RG builder to actually create optimal lineups from that pool. Thanks

    Hi Davey, it takes some experimentation to get the results you want with lineup builder. The first question I have is: Were you building lineups using the “optimize” or “tournament” build strategy?

    When you use optimized, it treats the hearts as a max exposure and cares more about getting you a highly projected lineups. So you would need to increase the projections of players you want to see. Some features like stacks, variability settings are not yet available for the optimize strategy yet and only for the tournament build strategy.

    The tournament setting should prioritize getting you the players you set exposures to. In general I would only set variability to 3-4 max since going too high decreases your chance of getting lineups (we’re actually working on lowering the max number on this setting). If you have narrowed down your player pool to a handful of players at each position, you’ll want to make sure your global max exposure or individual exposures are high enough to allow for enough lineups to be created.

    Hope that helps you get started. I’m in the process of updating our basic tutorial and after that I plan to make detailed video tutorials about the various build strategies, settings, exposures, and ways to get the most out of lineup builder.

    Are you guys able to make the lineup builder for every sport have a check mark place next to every player so you can only select certain players and have the algorithm make multi lineups with just those players? It will save a lot of time not having to X out all the players you don’t want. And a Def rating?
