Payouts? WHIR

Postby vincent854 » Wed Jul 31, 2013 5:44 pm

Last season our league paid the teams that finished 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the playoffs. We also paid the team with the best record and the team with the most points. This season I increased the league fees hoping to institute a few other payouts. I'm thinking of a payout for the highest week but don't have many other ideas. If anyone could let me know some other good payouts it would be appreciated. Also, the payout for winning the playoffs is greater than best record. Is that the most common way to do that? Sorry for saying payout so much. Thanks ;-D

It depends on the total amount that you bring in. Here are the typical payouts that I have in my leagues:
Division winners
Weekly high score
Champion
Runner-up
Toilet Bowl winner

Last season the fees were $40 per team and we have 10 teams so $400.
My payouts went like this...
$150- First place
$100- Second place
$50- Third place
$50- Most points
$50- Best record

This year I upped the fees to $60 per so there will be $600. Any thoughts on a good way to split that up? The payouts in red were all won by 1 person so I'm trying to find some other options.

I would do it something like:
Champ - $300
Runner-up - $125
Division winners - 2x$30 = $60
Weekly high score - 13x$5 = $65
Toilet Bowl winner - $50

Thanks for the info. I was thinking about going with this.
1st place=$240
2nd place=$120
3rd place=$60
Highest weekly point total-$10 x 13= $130
Most point=$25
Highest single week point total over full season=$25

My plan is for the winner of the loser bowl to get first choice of draft pick. We have also been talking about having a $2 fee for any trades to get a little bit more cash. Thoughts?

Looks good. Yes, the fees that I get from transactions I add to the weekly high scores.
