Change from Head to Head scoring to Weekly League-Wide scoring

New 'Hoo

Change from Head to Head scoring to Weekly League-Wide scoring

For 2 years in a row, one team in our league has missed the playoffs even though it has been top 2 in the league in scoring. Just the luck of the weekly draw. But it also seems rather unfair.  Is there an option in Yahoo to have the entire league go head to head (e.g., so the 5 teams with the highest score get a W and the 5 lowest scoring teams get an L)?

This option does not currently exist. 

 

Check back next season to see any new features added to the game.

If this isn't an option, there are things you can do to mitigate it a bit.  One is don't use divisions.  Then make sure that your tiebreaker (to get into playoffs) is PF (points for).  This doesn't guarantee anything, but I've been running a league like this for 15 years, and there's only been one I recall where a top point getter missed the postseason.  For last spots, there are usually several w/same record.
