Are You Ready To See Today's Optimal DraftKings 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.
