Filters & Sorting
The header for the player salary table contains a series of filters which can be used to limit the players shown in the table. To sort data, you can click each column header.
The player salary table provides powerful filters, that allow you to filter which players will be shown in the list.
All filters are cumulative; meaning if you have both a salary filter and a name filter enabled, only players which match both filters will be displayed.
Use > or < symbols to filter numeric values. (IE. <5000 to filter players less than $5000 salary)
Enter part of a players name to filter
Choose from a pre-defined set of options (Slate, Team, etc.)
To reset all filters in one action, you can click the 'Click Here' link.
If you wish to clear a single filter, simply erase the content in the filter column.
There are two ways to modify player selection for Lineup Generation. These adjusments are only valid for the current period. (IE. If you make a modification for NBA on March 18th, those modifications are ONLY for that single day, and do not carry over to future periods.)
Clicking the + sign, will increase a players projection by 1 point per click.
Clicking the - sign, will decrease a players projection by 1 point per click.
These adjustments are used during LineStar Lineup Generation.
Loving and Hating
