DraftKings Genetic Algorithm

✓ Compatible with desktop and web



Referenced by DataShopTalk, the DraftKings Genetic Algorithm selects up to 20 lineups that maximize points and stays under a salary cap. The genetic algorithm was chosen for the ease of implementation and for how it inherently handles the vagaries expected with NFL performance. Lineups are generated from ESPN projections.


The algorithm to provide a set of “good” lineups and not guaranteed to select a winning or top 1% solution – instead creating lineups that fall mostly in the top 25%.
