Optimizing Lineup...

If there are a large number of players, our lineup optimization process could take up to a minute to finish.

We couldn't generate a valid lineup.

Here are a few possible reasons why this may have happened:

  1. The pool of eligible players is too small.
  2. Too many players are locked in at a position.
  3. The locked in players are expensive enough that a valid lineup is impossible.

Tip: Exclude or lock players for different results.
