    The Extender (Team RG)

    We’re excited to introduce some big updates for the lineup builder this MLB season! Top ranked grinder and RotoGrinders host Chris Gimino walks you through these updates in the video below:

    Hitter Stacks: We’ve made it easier to stack hitters from a team by letting you specify the numbers of players you want to use, the teams you want to stack and how much exposure you want of each, along with the ability to enable double stacks (lineups that consist of two team stacks). Check out this feature by going to the “Rules” tab and selecting “Hitter Stacks”

    Groups: We removed the current player stacks feature in favor of “groups”. Groups lets you build a core of players or specify correlations that you want or don’t want in your lineups. Unlike the previous stacking feature, multiple group rules can be applied to any lineup and you can also tell lineup builder to only use a group if a certain player is present in the lineup. This feature also lives under the “Rules” tab.

    Min/Max Exposure: We changed the target exposure column to an input box to help save you time. Lineup builder will also try to give you a player within a range above or below the target exposure range for more flexibility. If you want finer control over your player exposures, select “use min/max exposure” in the settings sidebar. This will switch to a two column min/max exposure in the player pool.

    Optimal/Random: Instead of a tournament strategy, we now offer a Balanced and Random setting in addition to Optimal. Balanced blends randomness and optimization whereas Randomness uses random values for your projections. Total randomness is best used when you have a narrowed down player pool and want less correlations in your lineups.

    Note: If you already had lineup builder open, you’ll have to refresh the page to see the updates.

    Give it a try and let us know what you think!

    Is anyone else having trouble with the hitter stacks? Every time I enter in my percentages across the board it is coming back with an inability to create any lineups. It worked one time for me? I have may settings and play pool incredibly loose. Anybody else having trouble or know what I need to do differently?

    For some reason, I can’t get the lineup builder to make me lineups with Chad Khul in them (on DK). I’m pretty sure I don’t have any criteria that excludes him, and it won’t put him in a lineup, even if I lock him with any other hitter or pitcher.

    Same thing here. Been playing with the settings for past 2 hours.

    Is there an easy way in the lineup builder to have it give you the optimal 4-4 stack with the highest projected lineup total, without specifying which teams you want to use? It can be the double stack with any teams.

    I’m going in and locking up about 20 ish golfers to make lineups with. trying to build just optimal lineups with those and i’m always getting an error that it can’t build lines. i have all the default settings for the sliders. what else do I need to do to see these lines? Thanks!

  • Braunie

    I need some help, I go to ‘rules” then select my parameters. Then what? I select my line ups and it says “no line ups no problem” ??? Help Please

    Sometimes lineup builder manages to produce lineups with the rules I set, but most times I get 0 out of 20 or 2 out of 20 lineups. The only way I can get 20 out of 20 is removing all rules. I’ve tried on both Chrome and Firefox.

    How do you delete a group? I see how it goes empty but can you actually delete it?

  • tvsfrink

    Can you fix the thing where the BAT is unloaded if you go to a different site? I play on multiple sites and I have to reload it each time.

    We don’t have a button to completely remove a group yet. It’s coming soon. You can disable the group by unchecking “group enabled” for now.

    If you want to PM me with the rules you were using, I can look into it some more and see if there is anything we need to fix on our end or if there was anything that may have been conflicting.

    If you’re locking the 20 golfers using the lock icon, it would make sense that you’re not getting lineups back since it’s trying to guarantee that all of those players are in the same lineup. If you have 20ish golfers you want to see in your lineups, I recommend using the target exposure column instead of the lock icon.

    There isn’t an easy way to do this without saying which teams you want. It could work to set all teams in hitter stacks at 100%. It will then consider all teams for the 4/4 stack.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I’ve added this to our list of upcoming improvements to look into.

    Would like to put in a request for the ability to unhide players. Currently the LU builder is only showing players in the “projected lineup”. If there is already a way to do this, please let me know.

    Thanks

    LineupBuilder seems to work nicely for NBA but MLB has all types of issues

    Same problem. Have percentages by half the players and the others have set for min exposure 0 max 50, so plenty of players. No group rules and still generates 3-5 lineups when I request 50+

  • benstnick

    I’ve never had this issue before, but the lineup builder keeps generating 0/150 lineups. My exposure settings are just fine and I have more than half the field in my player pool. Anyone else having issues?

    sorry for the issues you’re seeing. which site were you trying to generate lineups for? did you use the hitters stacks feature at all and did you have no batters vs pitchers checked or unchecked?

    if you’re still having this issue, could you message me with the site/sport you’re trying to create lineups for along with any non-default settings you’re using? thanks!

    Can anyone tell me why this might be happening?
