1. Set your playoffs up so that the 2 teams with the Top overall record are given a 1st round BYE in the playoffs.
One System that works well in 12 team Head to Head leagues:
- Playoffs in Week 14, 15 and 16
- 6 Teams advance to playoffs
- Week #14: Seeds #1 and #2 have byes; Seed #6 vs. Seed #3 and Seed #5 vs. Seed #4
- Week #15: Seed #1 vs lower seeded winner from Wk 14; Seed #2 vs higher seeded winner from Wk 14
- Week #16: Championship game - Winner of 2 games from Week #15
2. If you feel there is too much luck in pure head to head, you can use a system like the "Victory Points" system that is available with http://www.myfantasyleague.com
. This site allows you to define points that are awarded for WINs, but you can also award points to teams for having a score in the top 1/3 of all scores for that week, etc.
Then you can use the Victory Points totals to determine who goes to the playoffs.
