Are You Ready To See Today's Optimal FantasyDraft Lineup?

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.
  4. The applied filters restrict the player pool too much.

Please contact support@rotowire.com if this error is still appearing after making the suggested adjustments to the player pool.

Tip: Exclude or lock players for different results.

Projection Models
RotoWire Model Projections based on advanced data, vegas metrics, player matchups, and RotoWire's own daily fantasy experts.

Applied
Average FantasyDraft Points (Last 20 Days) This model simply calculates the average FantasyDraft fantasy points a player has scored using data collected over the last 20 days.

Apply L20D Average Model
Ceiling/Upside Model Ceiling, or upside, is calculated by finding the average of the top FantasyDraft points scored, by each individual player, and weighting it based on their matchup.

This system is most useful for constructing tournament lineups.

Use Ceiling Model
Floor/Consistency Model Floor is calculated by finding the average of the lowest FantasyDraft points scored, by each individual player, and weighting it based on their matchup.

This system is most useful for constructing cash game lineups.

Apply Floor Model
Trend Model New! This model adds a player's total trend value to their projection. A trend value is the expected fantasy points above or below projected. It is based on how the player has been performing and the quality of their next matchup.

This system is most useful for constructing cash game lineups with slightly more variability.
