RotoTracker Now Supports DraftKings Tennis Contests!

You can now import your Tennis results and get full support in RT, with filtering, graphing and cohort analysis.

Fantasy Tennis is here, and RotoTracker is ready!

A week or two back, DraftKings started offering tennis contests. To play, you draft six players while staying under the $50,000 salary cap. Contests last just one round of a tennis tournament, with players graded on a variety of performance metrics in their match: Games and sets won and lost, aces and double faults, plus bonuses for taking clean sets, winning the match in straight sets, among many others. Contests for Wimbledon are running now in the lobby.

And of course, RotoTracker is there to help you understand how you're performing. We updated the site to offer first-class support for DraftKings Tennis.

That means tennis files will be correctly imported and classified, with a new symbol to help you identify your tennis results. You'll find a tennis filter in the sports dropdown, and it will be listed in the sport cohort report.

RotoTracker, the world's leading bankroll and results tracking tool for Daily Fantasy Sports, now handles an incredible 15 sports across five daily fantasy sports sites! This includes first-class support for Turkish Euroleague and and WNBA,.

If you don't yet have a DraftKings account, you can sign up here and enter your first Tennis contest today. The new sport is available in every market where DraftKings operates.

And if you don't have a RotoTracker account yet, what are you waiting for? It's free, it's easy to use, and it offers unprecedented insight into your DFS results. Sign up now!

RotoTracker Now Supports DraftKings Euroleague Contests

DraftKings is now running fantasy contests for Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and we've updated RotoTracker to support it!

Any DraftKings contest results with EuroLeague entries will be correctly imported and classified. As you'd expect, you'll find EuroLeague in your sport filter dropdown, in the sport cohort, and we've also added the 2017-2018 EuroLeague season, so you'll find a filter and cohort for that too. Woop!

If you were one of the first to enter the EuroLeague contests over the weekend and upload before this announcement, you will have found that these entries were skipped over. You'll just need to delete your latest DraftKings file upload then do a fresh import, either with an upload or with RotoTracker Sync, your EuroLeague results will import correctly.

RotoTracker now handles 14 sports, across five daily fantasy sports sites — no other tool on the market offers close to this level of support! This includes first-class support for WNBA, which we added back in July, and exclusive support for DraftKings Pick'em and Arcade formats!

Seasons for 2017-2018 Added

Just a bit of house-keeping: We have added to the database of seasons for the new 2017-2018 period, so your latest contests in all the major US sports are now properly categorized. Specifically, you should now see your contests properly grouped under:

  • NFL, NHL, and NBA 2017-2018
  • WNBA 2017
  • CFL 2017
  • MLB 2018 (once March rolls around and the new season gets underway).

As a reminder, all customers can filter by season — you'll find it under the "general" dropdown of filters on the left. RotoTracker+ customers can also enjoy the season cohort feature. Not on RotoTracker+ yet? find out about all the benefits of a premium sub here.

CSV Downloading - Understanding RotoTracker+

In this series of blog posts, we look at some of the features of RotoTracker+, an exclusive set of advanced features available to all subscribers of our Bronze, Silver and Gold plans.

One of the most interesting and requested features that we added to RotoTracker+ was CSV downloading — every table and report across the entire app can now be downloaded instantly.

However, some users might be wondering how to best make use of this feature, so in this blog post, we will set out some of the main ways you might want to download your own reports and some of the power of this exciting new feature.

I've just uploaded my CSV data to RotoTracker — why would I want to download it again?!

That's a fair question! Here are just some of the reasons why you might find this useful:

  • RotoTracker does all the hard work combining multiple histories across multiple sites. Maybe you play on more than one DFS site, and each is in its own strange format; or you play on FanDuel and have dozens 1000-line CSV files — Not particularly useful. As you know, one of the strengths of RotoTracker is putting all that data into one place. Once it is collated, downloading that as one file for your own records can be really handy.
  • RotoTracker normalizes all the data. Different sites format things in different ways. Cents or dollars? Currency signs or not? Dates formatted how? Titles escaped? Some DFS files (not naming names!) even change style mid-way through the file, or export malformed CSV! RotoTracker gracefully handles all that for you. Anything you export will be in a single, valid CSV format, with all currency values normalized to cents, titles tidied up, and dates made consistent. Open it up in Excel and you'll instantly be able to create filters, sorts and charts however you want.
  • It's not just for downloading your entries! Every report in RotoTracker supports a CSV download option. That means all your cohort reports be downloaded, and the opponent profit and points reports.
  • RotoTracker understands contests. One of RotoTracker's unique powers is understanding that you might well enter multiple entries into a single contest — that's why our contest report is the default way of presenting your list of results. This can be downloaded as a CSV file as well as the raw entries report.
  • Okay okay, I see your point. But what can I actually do with a downloaded CSV file?

    Here's some of the ways our users are making use of this feature:

    • Their own offline backup of results. Storing stuff in the cloud is great for quick web access, but some users will want a hard copy of their results. Do a monthly download of your month cohort and save it to your hard drive for own future reference.
    • Advanced analysis. RotoTracker is the best in its class for letting you analyze your data, with dozens of different, chainable filters, reporst and charts. But we understand that it doesn't do every possible combination and graph, which is why advanced users might find it useful to import their raw data back into Excel for further analysis. Thanks to our clear data format, Excel and other spreadsheet programs will instantly understand the data formats and handle it correctly.
    • Taxes. We are not tax lawyers, and this is not tax advice! However, we do know that some users find a CSV download of their daily report filtered to the last tax year very handy for filing their taxes — particularly those in states where you need to report daily amount wagered and profited.

    Anything else I should know

    I'm glad you asked...

    • Every download respects any filtering set. Want to download a a list of all your opponents filtered to only ones you've played at least five times, showing you your results at the $50 buy-in level? No problem, just set up the filters and hit the download button.
    • Ordering is respected too. If you order that opponent points report by score delta, the CSV result will be in that order too!
    • On demand, CSV files will be up to 10,000 lines long but if you need more, just contact support and we'll manually do an export for you for the whole dataset.

DraftKings Arcade and Pick'em Formats - Understanding RotoTracker+

In this series of blog posts, we look at some of the features of RotoTracker+, an exclusive set of advanced features available to all subscribers of our Bronze, Silver and Gold plans.

Over the Summer of 2017, DraftKings added two new types of contest ‐ Arcade and Pick'em.

Arcade Mode, to give it its full title, was a simplified contest type for MLB (other sports maybe be coming) where players select one pitcher and five hitters, with no positional requirements on the hitters. Contest are focused on a smaller group of games rather than a full slate, and the points scoring system was changed up to add more variety. You can find out more about this format here.

Pick'em is a similar simplified format, tried for both MLB and NFL. Rather than a salary cap, you draft a team by simply picking one player from each tier. There's around eight tiers in total. More info here.

In August 2017, DraftKings started exporting this contest "style" — Classic, Pick'em and Arcade — in the entry history CSV. RotoTracker is the only tool available that correctly support this new field, letting you view a cohort and filter to only one contest style.

Using the New Style Features in RotoTracker+

Any contests played after August 2017 will be correctly categorized as Classic, Pick'em and Arcade, there's nothing you need to do. If you are currently a free user and are considering upgrading to RotoTracker+, you won't need to do anything — the minute you purchase a Bronze, Silver and Gold plan, all your existing data will be correctly categorized instantly.

Your first point of interest will be the new Style cohort report, which shows you your performance grouped by style. Note that, if you play on other sites, these will all be classified as "Classic / No Style."

Like all Cohort reports, you can use the full filter functionality to narrow down your results, download the table in CSV, and use Cohort Graphing to chart this data.

There's also a Style filter, which applies to all your reports. Say you want to exclude all your results to just Classic contests: Simply set the filter, and then every graph and report will filter out all Arcade and Pick'em contests. Simple!
