Question on "Points" vs "Points In Lineup" on the OPL Team page

I assumed “Points” referred to the total number of points the player earned during the round irrespective of being included in the OPL team lineup via the best ball algorithm. Then I noticed values for “Points” lower than “Points In Lineup”.

What do these columns mean? (Fully expect that I’m missing something super obvious, by the way.)

Points = all points, including days in which points are negative.

Points in lineup = points on the days that player made your OPL lineup via the best ball algorithm.

Points will always be lower, since it includes 0-4 days, negative pitching outings, etc.

I should also note Points in lineup could differ from team to team based on that team’s depth, etc.

Ah yes… “including days in which points are negative” …duh.

Points could be higher. I see this on quite a few teams. Presumably the player earned very few points (1.6 after going 1-4) and was not included in the lineup.

Points being higher than points in lineup seems only likely for pitchers.
