Lineup Optimizer: FanDuel CFB Saturday Night Week 9

A lineup optimizer that accounts for player salaries and uses projections to maximize expected points.

This is a lineup optimizer for FanDuel using projections by Devin Knotts. Projected points, projected value, and H-value are all displayed. Projected value is equal to projected points divided by salary (and then multiplied by 10,000). H-value is equal to projected points raised to the square root of three, divided by salary (and then multiplied by 2,000). H-value, a measure inspired by Dan Hindery, is often a better indicator of true value than points per dollar. Click on the column headings to sort by that column.

When you click on a player's name, the player is added to your lineup over at the right. Projected total points are displayed above your lineup. Click on a player in your lineup to remove him.

If you fill in a partial lineup with no more than six open spaces, you can have the remaining spaces filled in automatically by clicking on the green "Knotts". To exclude a player from consideration by this feature, click on the green "o" to the right of his name. (Click again to undo.)
