The team that he was playing, I am battling for a playoff spot. So now that team is a still a win up on me (I won as well this week) and could possibly affect me making the playoffs. And if you say that maybe I should field a better team so I don't have to worry about the playoffs, well I lost two games by a total of 3 points on weeks where I had the second highest score for that week, how crappy is that? Last week, a team had the second lowest point total for the week and still WON, he is 8th in points scored overall, yet now has a 6-4 record simply because he has the least points scored against him this year (by a large margin). I'm thinking about starting a league next year where wins and losses are based on points scored for that week. The top 5 best scores get a win, bottom 5 scores a loss. Anyone ever heard of any leagues like that?
i do agree you got hosed...something like that should have been adjusted for the "greater good" of the league
what you are refering to at the end is sometimes called a Victory Point system, although it is usually used in conjunction with Wins and Losses (i.e. Win = 1 pt, Top 5 score = 1 point...so if you win and Top 5 you get 2 points, win and bottom 5 = 1 point, lose and top 5 = 1 point)
Myfantasyleague.com supports this scoring...not sure if others do or not
