Sometimes due to matchups, etc., one player - especially a bench player - will really play well in a game. It would be nice to have an option to take that player's performance into consideration when looking at the depth chart. For example, in today's Duke/UNC game, Duke's reserve C Johnson came in and was dominating the rebounding for Duke. He was playing because the starter was in early foul trouble. But in the 2nd half, he was largely shutdown and the starter got all of the minutes. At the end of the game, starter Crittenden had a +/- of -10 while his backup was +6. A real life coach would have let the backup get more minutes. What if we have an option Least<-->Most for "Play Hot Hand" in each situation which would consider in game +/- when looking at the depth chart?

Never mind the question of how much a "hot hand" sort of streakiness (in real life) is real vs. just a series of coins flipped "heads"... In DEL sports there is no such thing as streakiness - it really is just pure luck. If your backup is doing well, most likely the starter would have done even better given the same random draws that happened while the backup was in the game.
Willing to reconsider if more than two coaches would like this, but am leaning toward not implementing this.
