"Homefield Advantage" in FF???

Sorry to bump this thread up...

I think one possibility to get the home field advandate would be with the rounding of fractionnal points.

For example: both players have a QB that scored 24.3 pts in a week

The home player's QB could see his point total up to 25 as for the visiting one, he'd see his total down to 24.

Just a quick thought I had...

Interesting, but that still invokes the luck factor of who was "home" or "away" that week and gives (and takes away :-o) random points for it. :-/

Yeah, this is the key....It is kind of fair if you make sure everyone has the same number of home and away games, then you have a 50-50 chance each week to get the extra points.

I think after considering everything, making it a tie-breaker is the best way to go if you want to have homefield advantage in your league, and I actually think that is the best way to break ties in playoff games (then the team with the best regular season record moves on).
