Yeah last year in my fantasy league we debated going to a different layout rather than the head-to-head. We were thinking something along the lines of of a point system. Like 2 points if you win yoru h2h matchup, 1 point if you finish in the top half of scoring that week, -2 point if you lose your matchup, and -1 point if you score in the bottom half that week. We didn't end up going with it. As frustrating as head-to-head can be, there is something fun about it.
But there is no doubt that some years I wish we went with another layout. Right now my gripe with my money league is that my team is just really injured. I drafted AP #1, Keenan Allen #3, and Sammy Watkins #4. Somehow I'm still in the playoff race.
