Optimized core lineup

What are the factors Draft Analzer uses to determine what your Optimized Core Lineup is?  Changed in midstream to 4 for 4 because of John Paulson being rated so highly and my former site falling on it's face.  Haven't had the time to study well.  Thought would try using mostly the recommended Optimal players and see how I fair.  Mix of that and follow my instincts.

The Optimize Core Starters will recommend the following before taking any backups or Defenses or Kickers::
Starters: QB,RB,WR,TE 
+ 1 Backup at RB and WR

Can we clarify something, please?  When you say:
"Starters: QB,RB,WR,TE 
+ 1 Backup at RB and WR", 

Do you mean 1 QB, 1 RB, 1 WR, 1 TE, +1 Backup RB and 1 Backup WR?

If my league starts, for instance, 2 RBs and 3 WR, plus 1 flex of either, will the system optimize for this configuration or is it just 1 of each like above?

Thanks Jay.  I understand the basic structure of the roster.  The factors I was referring to are specific to the players not the positions the Analzer recommends.  Balance of the overall roster in terms of strength of schedule, consistency week to week and when the byes are thrown in of those specific players and their fit to the team and so on.  Normally I would do this all on my own, but I lost my focus this year.  Who hasn't from time to time.

I really love Analzer.  This is my 3rd or 4th year using it.  One league, playoffs each year, championship game last 2 and won last year.  Yahoo standings had me in the middle, league draft program had towards the bottom, and Analzer standings had me 2nd.  The other league complications and won't go into it.  

Helps me follow the flow of the draft in a few clicks which is huge help.

And what are your thoughts on 4 for 4?  Only been with them for about 3 weeks and am really impressed!
