1st place in league - $100
2nd place in league - $80
Highest scoring week - $20
Highest scoring player - $20
I'm not in any money leagues, so take this with a grain of salt. But generally speaking, any extra payouts that keep people interested throughout the season, regardless of their current record, is a good thing. Extra payouts keep people motivated, even in the face of a hopeless season. We had a number of trophies in our free league that could be potential payout options:
Most Points in a Week
Most Points by a Player (could be broken down by position)
Best Season Record
Most Total Points at end of regular season
Biggest Win margin in a week
Closet Win (smallest margin) in a week
Then we have a bunch of loser trophies for all the opposite events above, but that probably doesn't apply for a money league.
