yeah, i dont really like it...some of these games are so close as it is, to lose by a fraction of a point becasue you were the away team would just be awful
EDIT: the only time i could see it being relevant would be to use it in the playoffs, where the higer seed being the home team, that way it makes the regular season even more meaningful...but personally, i still dont like it

Eh...I'd rather have the decisions the two coaches make as far as who to start that week be the deciding factor in a H2H matchup rather than a home/away modifier. It's bad enough to lose because some random guy goes off...but if you outcoach the other team and lose because they get points for being "home" that week, it would really be annoying.
There's no "momentum" gained from playing fantasy football, so your picks should be what controls the team's fate. Just my opinion!

The only thing adding a homefield advantage in would do is increase the influence of luck in your league.
I prefer to take luck out of it as much as possible, so I wouldn't do it, but if you want to, just make it like 1-3 points.
I think that if you want to do it, the best way would be to award "home field advantage" in the playoffs based on regular season records. Then you can protect against the "best" team having an off week and getting bounced from the playoffs by someone else getting lucky and having some guys go off.
