My league had an odd number of teams one year, so we incorporated doubleheader weeks to come up with a reasonable schedule. It worked alright, but I made sure that the doubleheader weeks were weeks when all NFL teams were playing. I didn't want to put any team at a disadvantage of having to play a doubleheader when some of their players were on NFL byes. Just something to consider if you go that route.

We also did something similar with double header weeks, but made sure that they were not played during NFL bye weeks too ;-D

#1 is a distinct schedule, with each of the bullet items being a descriptive term describing that schedule.

#2 is a totally different schedule, with slightly different characteristics.

I actually ended up sending you 3 different 15 team schedules, as I found a 3rd one we had as well.

in one schedule, all teams play 17 games, in another, all teams play 19 and all teams play 21 games in the 3rd. All of them use DH scheduling to balance the fact that there are an odd number of teams.
