      2012 FanDuel WFBC Finalist

    Hello Grinders! And welcome to the 2017-18 National Hockey League season.

    This season we are showcasing out best NHL content yet, with our amazing lineupHQ tool leading the way. This is pretty much your one stop shop for everything NHL. However, we did not stop there. Back from last season we have the Grind Down, player projections, consensus value rankings, Grinders Live shows (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday), and the advanced analytics article (every Tuesday and Thursday).

    New this year: aside from our terrific lineupHQ tool (more on that below), we have the very popular Expert Survey (every Tuesday and Thursday), as well as a daily article on Core Plays.

    Lineup Headquarters: This is the first time the everyday player will have immediate access to knowledge, tools, information, and sophistication that makes it easy for them to compete across all levels of daily fantasy sports.

    Want to compete with the sharks?

    LineupHQ is the key!

    What is LineupHQ?

    LineupHQ will become your one-stop solution to the challenge of daily fantasy sports – the challenge of researching across twenty different sites, of toggling multiple tabs all day long, and of trying to keep track of all the information you have accumulated throughout the day. With the launch of LineupHQ, everything you need will be on one single page: your headquarters for building your lineups every day!

    Most of you are familiar with our Lineup Builder tool (which has grown in strength and capabilities over the last two years to a point where it can challenge the offerings from any other site – all while remaining a free part of the RotoGrinders experience!). But with LineupHQ, this tool will become your command center for each day of DFS work. Want to pull up Pepsi7’s Core Plays article? You’ll be able to click the article on a sidebar of LineupHQ, and it will open on that same page! Without ever leaving Lineup Builder, you can research many things and keep building lineups. Want to access “Consensus Value Rankings” Easy! Click on that tool, and it will open on the LineupHQ page – allowing you to quickly conduct your research while fluidly building your lineups.

    This is truly a new era of DFS – an era of advanced sophistication available to all players, where you can build one lineup or one hundred lineups with ease, using a suite of tools that are unrivaled in the industry…all without leaving a single page.

    What does this mean for RotoGrinders Premium?

    While all RotoGrinders users will have access to LineupHQ, these are some of the offerings that only RotoGrinders Premium subscribers will have available to them on the LineupHQ page:

    Consensus Value Rankings – The Classic returns! Point-per-dollar rankings from RG analysts and contributors

    Player Projections – Daily projections from the best NHL minds out there

    Expert Survey – Our analysts answer slate-specific questions to provide a glimpse inside the mind of top DFS players Tuesday and Thursday only

    Grind Down – In-depth, game-by-game breakdown. Note: The Grind Down will feature some free content daily, however, you can only read the entire Grind Down through our premium package.

    Core Plays article – Featuring the top foundational options for all formats that evening

    Premium Chat – Each week day, Pepsi7 will spend an hour in chat, answering all of your DFS hocky questions

    Advanced Analytics article – Every Tuesday and Thursday, JayWilly and company will break down the slate using advanced NHL statistics, helping you gain a huge edge on the field in the process

    Premium Player Pool Filters: Each day, three of our top NHL minds will share their favorite plays on the night – in three specific categories:

    “Core Plays” – the top foundational options for all formats

    “GPP specific” plays – a curated list loaded with upside options and contrarian pivots

    “Salary Savers” – the plays he is starting with from a “bottom-to-top” roster building approach

    Each day, some of the top NHL minds in the industry will also write up centers, wingers, defensemen and goalies that fill a variety of lineup-building needs. Premium subscribers will be able to find all of this information in LineupHQ – both in a curated format (want to see what all our experts think of the viable goalie options that day? – you’ll be able to quickly find this in one spot!), and individual player profiles on LineupHQ (want to know what our analysts think of Auston Matthews on opening night? – you’ll be able to hover over his name in LineupHQ and find that information!).

    Truly – from start to finish of this NHL season – it does not get any better than RotoGrinders Premium.

    And pricing, incredibly, remains ridiculously low! – for access to ALL sports (NFL, MLB, NBA, PGA, and NHL), you pay only $29.95 per month! We are also running a special limited offer: $250.00 for a 12-month subscription (a savings of over $100!). If you are strictly looking for NHL premium content throughout the regular season, it can be yours for $125.00.

    I’m bummed that these articles are behind a paywall, but I understand why. What I don’t like is, I’m willing to sign up for a free trial, but do not want DraftKings. Anyway of doing it for Fanduel?

    Any chance you are reconsidering the Grind Down being premium? This is really a bummer…looked forward to that read every day while trying to get into hockey DFS.

    Where is the expert survey for today? I don’t understand why this isn’t a daily feature. I know every slate is not a big one, but to have them only on Tuesday and Thursday doesn’t add value.

    Seriously guys, get with the program. The experts are providing their value rankings on a daily basis so having them participate in the survey every day would only be an additional five to ten minute commitment on their part!

    Sorry about that, it looks like this was temporarily offline but should be back up now (if you want to use it for the late contests)

    Yeah, this wasn’t working today or yesterday. Hockey is only on the second day in and it’s getting the shaft.

    They have the least hot take biased experts too. I like all the guys. No Pepsi videos yet either. RgE!, like E!SPN, probably considers it a dead/unprofitable sport with how awful the launch has been.

    EDIT: Just read expert survey is only T/TH. Wow. The shaft even more. What about hockey night?

  • KJIIOIIIKA

    Howdy! I am not a North American citizen and can not play on any of the big sites such as DK and FD etc. I am playing on small European dfs site which can not be named here. North American citizens are not eligible to play there and the dfs business is rather small scale (the largest slate on offer for NHL is a 11euro buy-in with a 1000euro guarantee. These attracts around 100 people on average). I’d like to have access to all the premium content but I understand that players benefiting from it the most would be DK and FD users. Am I right to assume that? And yeah, there’s huge time zone difference so most of games start at 3 or 5 a.m. local time. Thus I won’t be able to read/watch all the stuff posted prior to the games. Still worth a purchase?

    Is there a way to read the GPP and Salary Relief plays without having to go to Lineup HQ and hover over the little icon? IMO, the old way of having this type of content in article form was much more user-friendly.

    No, sorry. Lineup HQ is the only way, unless you are looking for Core Plays.

    Moving forward, we will be posting the expert survey everyday with the exception of Sunday.

  • Babelito84

    why is sunday an exception? wtf is wrong with every day theres a slate of games? we are PAYING for this product. It needs to be improved massively

    why is sunday an exception

    Most Sunday’s are extremely short slates for NHL.
    Tomorrow there is 1 game. The following Sunday there are 3 games then its back to one game.

  • Babelito84

    there are plenty of sundays with 4+ games this season…again this is PREMIUM content, right? The free content in the past was better than this….

  • monaco712

    Premium has definitely improved from last year give them a few games
    to work out the kinks.

    Isn’t that what the 6 month off season is for ? If I am paying for a premium , I expect something more. What’s new outside of the grind down ? I will be cancelling my premium by end of this month unless dramatic improvements are made.

  • EasyRawlins

    What happened to Daily Fantasy Faceoff yesterday (Saturday 10-7)? That was supposed to be available to subscribers, but it never showed up. Why????

  • zackthys

    Just a heads up, the lineup builder for fantasydraft has been missing all of the goalies every day so far, so it can’t spit out any lineups

  • Babelito84

    Until RG decides to invest in their NHL product, there are way better options elsewhere – this is embarrassing to pay for this

    Although our NHL budget is a littler tighter than some of the other major sports, we still have the best NHL minds in the business. I think the product we do have is excellent.

    Is there anything in-particular you are not happy with?
