What does your league do in week 17?

Postby Shader » Wed Jul 11, 2007 2:35 pm

I am starting a salary cap dynasty league, and I was wondering if anyone does anything special during week 17, if you have a league that has the super bowl during week 16.

I've always had the super bowl in week 17, because we didn't want to miss a week of FF. However, alot of people in my league want to move it to week 16.

So I was wondering if any of you do anything to get something out of that week of football?

For instance, I thought of a few contests, such as the team with the most points getting some kind of salary cap reward or something...

Thanks in advance to all who respond!

you could do some sort of 1 week game, but I'd say don't make it important to the league since it really is a crapshoot as far as who plays and who gets benched in week 17.

Oh league is H2H, but in week 17 we have a "Loser Bowl"

Basically all 10 teams put in $5 into the pot and whatever team can put up the absolute worst team (scores the lowest points) wins the $50 pot.

There are some rules of course.

The players you play have to have been on your team for at least 5 weeks, and if you didn't draft them originally they have to have started at least once.

The player has to play at least 1 play in week 17. You can't play someone who is not playing at all that week.

There are a few other minor rules that I can't remember right now, but you get the idea. Score the lowest # of points and you win $50.

Its good fun at our annual end of year banquet as well.

We have what we call the "Free For All" where all teams pick:

2 QBs
3 RBs
4 WRs
2 TEs
1 K
1 D

everyone throws in $5 and the team with the highest point total wins. These players can be on anyone's team and multiple teams can have the same player(s). At this point it's really just a matter of seeing how the season played out, how the matchups look, and using some intelligence to win the cash.

I've always thought it was a nice way to make up for some bad luck/bad picks during the season, especially for the teams that didn't make the playoffs.

We have a "grudge match" week. Owners are able to ask the commish to schedule a head to head game against their rival or someone who whacked them during the year. Usually, these games are played for side cash.

At week 17 FFL ceases to become important and the REAL NFL becomes the focus. FFL can take a back seat until after the playoffs.
