They should not be "decided", at all. That is just the point, and perhaps the problem. Deciding to remove player x in season y because you think that his teammate was an outlier is not a method, but a fudge.

Maybe the system could be improved by some sort of further rule? I dunno. If player x in the outlier tier is above a certain threshold, then any line/teammates are automatically removed from the algorithm. Maybe this would be of some use? Why don't you suggest a method? We could test it out and see if it yields results that seem more reasonable than what we have at present. The only thing I am sure of in all of this is that we cannot simply remove players based on some sort of gut feeling.
