Time series must have at least 3 values error with data in long format.

Hi, 

I am having some problems with the the time series plugin in and running the Train and forecasting models recipe. 

We are coming up with a use-case to predict Fantasy Football players points by using historical data. I have split up the players in different categories (mid, def, gk, etc) so that I can predict the best preforming player out of these categories to make up up a team.

We have put the data through the time series resampling recipe  and then ran the Train and forecasting models recipe and we got a "Job failed: Error in python process: At line 59: <class 'ValueError'>: Time series must have at least 3 values"

I have attached an screenshot of the data set which I believe is in Long Format with the player name as the time series identifier, there will be 32 rows for each player for the 32 games in the season. As well as the parameters we set for the recipe. Has anyone had this issue before and how was it resolved?

Hi @michaelm9689 ,

Were you able to resolve this? As mentioned directly in your support ticket

You will need to double-check that every player in your dataset has at least 3 rows.

You can click on column Name column -> Analyze and check the Count of each value. As needed you can filter out the names that don't have at least 3 rows.

Thanks,

0 Kudos
