Frequently Asked Questions
Once you click the Build Lineups button, you'll select the contests that you're building lineups for, as well as tweak any of these lineup settings that will ultimately end up forming the blueprint for how your lineups are going to be made. This includes things like our sliders, which incorporate how much we're going to factor in correlation, ownership fade, and what level of precision we're going to be looking at individual sims when it comes time to build your lineups. This also includes lineup parameters like minimum and maximum salary, minimum uniques between lineups, and the total min or max ownership sum of your lineups.
Now, we've put in a ton of work backtesting our sliders to the optimal values of what we feel is appropriate for each individual contest by running thousands of different builds at each individual combination of sliders and setting the default sliders to what we have found performed the best for different contests. And all things considered, this isn't the best possible place to add value in the SaberSim process. You'll get a ton more mileage out of making sharp adjustments to your player projections, setting lineup build rules, or adjusting player exposures in the post-build process than trying to fine-tune your sliders here, because we've already done a lot of the heavy lifting there for you.
In terms of the other settings you see here on this screen, we have a lot of other videos in our support documentation walking through each in detail. So I'd recommend going and checking those out. But overall, the best practice I can give when you're using the sliders and setting your build settings on SaberSim is to just first start with a default build on the basic settings that we give you. From there, study your lineups, see if there's anything you'd like to change. For example, having a little bit less ownership fade, or maybe adding a little bit more correlation into your lineups, and making those adjustments from there. But always start with the defaults. In the meantime, if you have any other questions about the rest of the lineup building process on SaberSim, check out some of those other videos in our support documentation. Thanks, and good luck.
