The league is not designed by head to head matchups but rather the total amount of points your starters accrue during the year. Whoever has the most points wins.
Some leagues have side prizes for the point leader; others actually decide the winner by it.
As for the original question - stuff like this happens. It's all about who you play in that case. Of course, he could only be a few points from being the 4th or 5th highest scorer also...depends on the gap.
