    Hello,

    I just discovered the lineup builder this weekend, and I used it for the NFL games. Today, I’ve been trying to use it for NBA and I’ve been having problems with it.

    First, I locked the players I wanted to run and clicked “generate multiple lineups”. 50 combinations loaded fine, but I realized that I wanted more. I went to the settings page and increased the max generated lineups to 100. When I clicked “generate multiple lineups” again only 12 combos came up. I tried again and only 3 combinations generated. The locked player pool never changed.

    This makes no sense at all.

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    I tried reproducing these steps for FanDuel NBA with a couple of locked players and i was able to get 100 lineups after generating 50. Which site were you using it for and how many players did you lock? If you also remember what your max exposure, min salary, and variability setting were that will also help me troubleshoot this. In the meantime, you may want to try clicking “Reset” and refreshing the page. Just note that this will reset your player pool and saved lineups. Thanks!

    Around 30-35 locked players with max exposure set at 100%….min salary at 58800…and variability at 0 percent.

    What I’m trying to do is build multiple lineups with only the locked players.

    Thanks for the help.

    Thanks for the info. I was able to reproduce something similar to what you’re seeing. I have to investigate more to see why it’s happening and how i can fix it.

    I’d also like to suggest that you try to narrow down your player pool in a different way.

    The “lock” icon is meant to ensure a locked player shows up in every lineup. Having so many locked players is likely causing the unintended issue in the generator.

    There are two ways to better accomplish the same thing with those 30-35 players:

    Exclude (X) all players from the player pool except for those you want to show up in your generated lineups, or use the game filters to exclude all players and then manually add in the players you want.

    OK…I’ll give that a shot tomorrow. I just found it weird that I didn’t have that problem when loading the football teams.

    Thanks for the help! I appreciate it a lot!

    I’ve been using the favoriting or liking or whatever you wanna call it and having the same problem, I’ll exclude every played I don’t want, and like all the guys I want. And sometimes it’ll only spit out a handful of combos when I want 30. And I know for a fact it can easily make those combos up. Somethings off with it.

    Since you’re looking at lineup generator questions: Some times I’ll have a certain pool of players and I will have the settings set to make 100 lineups. I push the button to generate lineups and 80 will be created. Then I will click the button again with the exact same pool of players and settings and 72 lineups will be created. I click the button again and 83 lineups are created. Why does that happen?

    This happens because there is a limit on how many times the generator tries to look for valid combinations given the constraints. It will also stop generating the first time it can’t find a valid lineup after so many tries.

    This is something I intend to change as it made sense before, but doesn’t anymore given some recent updates to improve distribution of favorite players across lineups.

    An update that should improve this will be out in the next day or two. I’ll post here when it is updated.
