I actually don't care for the play-off system that much at all. I'd rather just have it go by best overall record through 16 weeks (with points being a tie-breaker)... but since most of the leagues are play-off leagues, I think you definately have to go with week 16 for your SB...

No good league should have the Super Bowl in week 17...make that no league at all should have their Super Bowl in week 17

Week 16 no doubt. ;D

Although it irked me last year to see my Steven Jackson and Tiki Barber go off for a combined 7 TDs and like 400+ yards in week 17. Didn't matter because I won the league but it would have been nice to go out with a BIG BANG!!

:D

Even though I always have it week 16, the main rule of FF is to do what your league enjoys the most. That's all that really matters. However, I would strongly suggest you bring up to the league the pros and cons of each week and see if the consensus thinks it should change.

I really do think that having it week 16 is more driven to reward the better team the majority of the time in the championship whereas week 17 can be more of a crap shoot.

Week 17 is cool because you get more regular season FF. But it's really bad when your star players are benched.

Heck even week 16 sometimes there's a threat of players being benched because they already locked up the playoffs.

My main leagues do a week 16 superbowl but in some fun mess around leagues I love having as many weeks of fantasy football as possible.

The question in the poll says which week would you PREFER the super bowl be played in and I'd always prefer week 17 but due to the NFL and risk of injury it's gotta be done in week 16.

I always preferred week 17 because that meant an extra week of fantasy football. However, we started playing the championship games in week 16 a couple of years ago because of many of the reasons already stated above. We did manage to find a way to play that last week as well though. We use week 17 to determine final draft order for the rookie/free agent draft the following season. This way we have a better chance of having our best players playing in the championship game AND we still get 17 weeks of fantasy football. ;-D
