Some of the best and worst feelings in fantasy football come when one team tanks and scores almost no points and it still manages to beat the other team and when one team scores the second most points on the week but happens to be playing the top team and loses anyways - even though they would have beaten any other team.
To me, that's the worst part of fantasy football. I would rather have things decided by skill and having a larger stat base to go off of would accomplish this.
By implementing this sort of system, I think you are robbing yourself of some of the highs and lows of fantasy football. Sometimes the top teams need to face each other and someone needs to lose - and get nothing to show for it.
They still face each other.
Also, and of lesser importance, this will eliminate/lessen the occasional strategy of just plugging in consistent guys when your opponent is depleted (or on bye weeks) rather than the high risk/reward players. You will likely always need to go for as many points as possible and I think that anything that reduces the strategy element of fantasy football is a bad thing.
Huh? Yeah, you have to try and put the best time up every week. You are saying you miss the easy weeks, I don't see how that reduces strategy.
To me, I'd be interested in Rotiserrie or total points rankings, but people aren't up for it and it has it's downsides as well. To me, this doubleheader may be a good compromise.
AOL supports it I believe.
Finally won a league last year.
