  1. Hi FreeBaGel, sorry for the delayed response, FantasyDraft requires an additional manual step we have an article on the website under FantasyDraft with instructions. The reason for this is there is a unique personal upload key on their template. We are actively working with FantasyDraft to see if there is a way that we can eliminate this step.
  2. Thanks, our tech team was able to solve this bug as of yesterday, sorry for the delayed response back.
  3. Optimizer upload issues should be fixed, I was just able to upload 100 lineups to FD, DK, FantasyDraft
  4. Hi Steeler- There are two current ways to mass change percentages. You can upload projections and exposure percentages using the edit/upload. Or you can mass change all exposure using the pencil above the exp %. For example, you can set all players to 0% or 10% and then go back and manually change the ones that you wish to change. I'll add the option to just change percentages while keeping projections to our list of future enhancements.
  5. Hey @Joeybags24 we record every Thursday night and it is up on Youtube late Thursday (around midnight). We released Week 1 early.
  6. @SeniorVBDStudent I was able to isolate the issue (I believe). The issue is that Kyler Murray for some reason is not populating correctly, so he is causing the uploads to fail. I have our tech team looking into this and hopefully will be able to resolve.
  8. Use this as the place for future enhancements to the site whether it be content or enhancements to the lineup optimizer.
  9. Thanks @Icepick the issue for Zach Wilson was two players of the same name. I thought I had a permanent fix to catch those as it has happened in the past, but because this time they were in the same game (QB for BYU) my formula didn't have it for him. I have this corrected. Looking into your other issue.
  10. Love this suggestion @ajm27501 having our team look into doing this.
  11. This is the thread for any questions or issues about the Daily Fantasy Website/homepage. Some issues to be posted here. Don't see an article? Does something look off in an article? Can't find something on the website? Have a suggestion for an article?
  12. Please post here any issues you're facing or technical challenges you're experiencing with the lineup optimizer. I will do my best to respond to any issues in this thread. If it's not a support question, your comment may be deleted as the purpose is to keep this clean with issues so we can best help address anything.
  13. Hi @Bri I would check out John Lee's Tips and Picks article, I wrote a FanDuel Cash Article, and David Dodds has a Fantasy Draft Article. Phil Alexander does a DraftKings gpp article and Steve Buzzard who won basically every tournament on FanDuel last year has his GPP article
  14. Hi @Bri I'm not sure what you're looking for, can you clarify further?
  15. David's blog unfortunately will not be back this season. He is focusing his attention on a Fantasy Draft article as he moves his play primarily over to their Rake Free site. He will still have some great DFS tips included in this.
  16. Hey @BizzyDizzy One of the things you can do if you aren't sure is to just avoid using the presets and customize it exactly for your contest. All the presets do is pre-populate the Total Entries in the Contest and Target Finish in Top. For the 2x, 3x, 5x contests enter in the total entries in the contests, and then the target to finish in top ______. Let me know if this makes sense, happy to help clarify further. Thanks Devin Knotts DFS Content Manager
  17. Hopefully you guys check out the Footballguys podcast call the Footballguys Power Grid. We've grown tremendously over the two years doing it. It comes out every Friday morning Week 1 it will come out Tuesday morning
  18. I haven't gotten into preseason as much as past years. It seems like there even less of an emphasis of these games mattering than past years. Edit: I just got an update from Simon our lead app developer. Part of the issue was that the Google store was blocking DFS apps. We are working on a phone interface but anything with phones takes time.
  19. It would turn into a 6 or 8 team league. No owner would want to start a team in a small market or non-weather friendly market as there is no reason to compete.
  20. As the resident Browns fan of the staff. I'm torn on this one. In Dorsey I trust as he knows Hunt a lot better than any of us, but I'm not sure putting Hunt back near his hometown where the on-camera incident happened is a good idea. Interested to see what the contract is, it could be a low-risk high-upside move with contingencies that one foot out of line and you're gone.
  21. Couple things for me. 1) React faster and don't ignore early season success. It's easy to ignore players such as Tyler Boyd and Phillip Lindsay and I did for the most part. Having a pre-conceived bias heading into the season that has you create a narrative on why that player will not be successful. 2) I spent up on Ertz almost everywhere this year and where I did it paid big time. Getting either Ertz or Kelce is such a big advantage and should be drafted much higher next season. 3) This is nothing new for me, but paying up for running backs continues to be the right strategy. While Zero RB can still work, you have to get lucky. The theory that you're the only one searching for running backs off the waiver wire is a flawed concept that might work in an extremely casual office league, but if you're playing with people that know what they are doing everyone is looking for running backs every week. 4) Don't overvalue top-end quarterbacks. I went out of the way to draft Aaron Rodgers in a number of leagues. I still think there is value in taking the elite quarterback, but at the right cost. For example, someone is going to likely take Mahomes far too early next year.
  22. This has been fixed David sends his apologies was an error on the upload getting cut off.
  23. We talk about guaranteed money, but it's not necessarily true. In the NFL, if you're a first or second round quarterback, you're essentially given a chance to play at some point and the team is committing to you. For every Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, Kris Bryant who are top picks that make a ton of money there are these players who were top #1 or #2 picks overall. Even these players make about the same as the elite quarterbacks in the NFL ~$30M per year. If you expand outside of the top 2 the list is massive. The reality is that baseball is incredibly hard and if you don't succeed, you get your signing bonus of about $5M in Murray's case, but you're making pennies living in small towns for years with massive pressure. Murray is incredibly raw as a baseball player so it is far from a guarantee he makes the majors. Even if you make the majors, you're making less than $1M a year until arbitration which is 3 years of MLB service. Brady Aiken #1 2014 pick Tyler Kolek #2 2014 pick Mark Appel #1 2013 pick Danny Hultzen #2 2011 pick
  24. Kyler Murray is likely suspended for tomorrow's game or at least for part of it for violation of team rules. Should help Trey Sermon. Not sure I can trust either Austin Kendall or Murray.
