DraftKings Currently Experiencing Issues with Entry History CSV Download [Update: Resolved]

Update 12:24pm EST: The issue has been resolved.

We have been alerted by our users that the DraftKings CSV download is currently not working — when you click to download your entry history file, the DraftKings server is sending a file with no data. This occurs with a manual download as well as using the RotoTracker Sync browser extension. If you try uploading this empty file to RotoTracker is will (naturally) fail.

We have contacted DraftKings and will update the blog when we have more details. Hopefully just a temporary hitch!


Quick Fix for DraftKings' New CSV Format

New "game type" column now handled gracefully - RotoTracker Sync update coming soon!

DraftKings updated their CSV format today to add in a new column - game type. This broke both our importer and the extension.

Within the hour, we had a fix for RotoTracker Importer so this new file format is handled. Right now we're ignoring the new column (we'll look to support this retroactively once we understand what this new field does!). But at least for now, your new files will import as before.

We are working to get a similar fix for the Sync browser extension as soon as possible. This can take a little while because it has to go through the submission process at both Chrome and Firefox app stores, so please be patient! We'll update the blog and Twitter once the update is live.


New RotoTracker Features Released

Entry fee filter on dashboard, column sorting on all cohort reports, plus improved prize-pool filtering.

Our end of season flurry of features and improvements to RotoTracker continues!

Entry Fee Filter on Dashboard

A long-standing user suggestion is to add an entry fee filter alongside site, sport, and category filters on the dashboard, so we're excited to finally have this feature live. Like the other filters, this can be chained with the others, and dashboard URLs can be bookmarked and linked to (this link will take you to your 2017 mid-stakes MLB results, for example).

And, of course, the new filter also works for Shared Dashboards. Here's how it all works:

Cohort table sorting

Back in June, we introduced the new Dates tab, splitting out the month and year cohorts into a new section and introducing cohort table sorting. Now we've introduced this feature to all other cohort reports.

That means you can easily see, for example, the day of the week you score best, the site you have the highest ROI, or the contest category makes you the most profit.

Better Prize Pool Filter

Last week, we talked about a change at DraftKings with super-high volume players being restricted by what contests they could enter. RotoTracker is unique in tracking and letting you filter by prize pool, and we've further improved this functionality so you can better understand what impact this change may have on you.

You'll find now under the Prize Pools filter a new option under the "preset range" filter — "less than $25k." As the name would suggest, this will filter out to all contests with prize pools less than (but not including) $25k prize pools. There's also new min and max drop-downs to give you even more control over prize pool filtering.

We'll do a follow-up blog post soon explaining exactly how RotoTracker can help you understand this DraftKings change and the impact could have on your results soon. Stay tuned!


Use RotoTracker to Keep Track of Your Lifetime Buy-ins On DraftKings

DraftKings has a new rule that restricts high-volume players.

Beginning August 1, 2017, DraftKings implemented a new rule that restricts players with over $1 million in lifetime entry fees from entering all contests with a buy-in under $5 and a prize pool of less than $25,000.

If you're interested in how close you are to this $1 million marker, RotoTracker can help out. You can get your lifetime fees stat right on the dashboard with just a couple of clicks:

You can also do this from the Dates report — again, just make sure you filter to DraftKings if you play on more than one site:

And if you want to know what the impact will be if you hit this level, you can using RotoTracker's advanced filters. Filter to tournaments with a buy-in less than $5 and with a prize pool less than $25,000, to see at-a-glance how well you have performed in these games!

There's more we can do here, and we'll look to add even more functionality that will help you react to this change. Stay tuned!
