Today's Optimal Lineup For DraftKings

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.

Average DraftKings Points (Last 20 Days) This model simply calculates the average DraftKings 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 DraftKings points scored, by each individual player, and weighting it based on their matchup.

This system is most useful for constructing tournament lineups.
