    Why Head-To-Head?

    BakoSpanks, question on the flipside regarding your example: Why don't you create a league where your only roster spot is a QB? What makes a league competitive is the fact that you CAN win or lose. If I started a league in which wins and losses didn't matter no one would play. If I wasn't playing against someone else, I probably wouldn't play. Peyton Manning is gonna give you a good chance to win every week. That doesn't mean Adrian Peterson isn't gonna go off for 200 and beat you. If you draft well and understand matchups you are gonna have a winning team, but not win every time. If you aren't playing against anyone you CAN'T win.

    • I think you might've missed my point. It's simply this - Looking only at wins, can often be misleading when it comes to who the most skilled and talented owners in a league are. If you are happy with luck playing a major role in your fantasy football success, then that's great! I'd prefer to remove as much luck from the equation as possible. That's where my admiration of All-Play comes in. It eliminates the "luck" of the schedule (because every team plays every other team every week). There's enough luck involved in fantasy football as it is - injuries, coaches, refs, weather...

      Also, my issue is with how most playoffs are seeded. Once you get into the playoffs, the head-to-head format makes the most sense. It's like going into sudden-death.
