We’re excited to introduce some big updates for the lineup builder this MLB season! Top ranked grinder and RotoGrinders host Chris Gimino walks you through these updates in the video below:
Hitter Stacks: We’ve made it easier to stack hitters from a team by letting you specify the numbers of players you want to use, the teams you want to stack and how much exposure you want of each, along with the ability to enable double stacks (lineups that consist of two team stacks). Check out this feature by going to the “Rules” tab and selecting “Hitter Stacks”
Groups: We removed the current player stacks feature in favor of “groups”. Groups lets you build a core of players or specify correlations that you want or don’t want in your lineups. Unlike the previous stacking feature, multiple group rules can be applied to any lineup and you can also tell lineup builder to only use a group if a certain player is present in the lineup. This feature also lives under the “Rules” tab.
Min/Max Exposure: We changed the target exposure column to an input box to help save you time. Lineup builder will also try to give you a player within a range above or below the target exposure range for more flexibility. If you want finer control over your player exposures, select “use min/max exposure” in the settings sidebar. This will switch to a two column min/max exposure in the player pool.
Optimal/Random: Instead of a tournament strategy, we now offer a Balanced and Random setting in addition to Optimal. Balanced blends randomness and optimization whereas Randomness uses random values for your projections. Total randomness is best used when you have a narrowed down player pool and want less correlations in your lineups.
Note: If you already had lineup builder open, you’ll have to refresh the page to see the updates.
Give it a try and let us know what you think!
