The league I was in and ran for years was setup this way---> it was 12 teams in the league and a 12 week season. Each week you did NOT play head to head as it went this way = the top 6 highest scoring teams each week got wins the bottom 6 scoring teams got losses . Week 13 playoffs began and the top 3 teams from the season got byes and teams / seeds 4-5-6 played a 1 week 13 playoff where the team that scored highest advanced the other 2 were out. You now had 4 teams remaining and week 14 they all played each other only the highest scoring team got a win---week 15 the same deal highest scoring team got a win and IF it was the same team that won the previous week then he won the league and cash, If a different team won that week then the winners of week 14 and 15 played head to head in week 16 for all the marbles and the other 2 remaining teams played in the consolation week 16 game.If by chance the same team won weeks 14 and 15 and he was declared the winner after 2 playoff weeks then instead of 2 teams in that consolation week 16 game there would have been 3 teams in the consolation game. I am not sure if you guys were able to follow this but it was simple and the 11 other owners liked it and I loved this format and INVENTED / Came up with it with 2 buddies and it took some of the luck out of H2H and evened the playing field somewhat . I can tell you that sometimes as with h2h the best team did not always win the league but the best record and highest scoring teams had a better chance of making it to the end and more times than not , they did make it to the end.
