Let's steer away from Josh's post earlier today, and focus on another community-centric league (or leagues). I take my leagues pretty seriously, so I'd love input from people in regards to league format. I have no issue making a league based on the majority's preference, but if someone else wants to make it, I won't mind one bit.
Things to consider:
-Head to Head vs. Rotisserie: Head to Head is a weekly affair against one other opponent, with Wins and Losses tallied up over the course of the year. Rotisserie is an accumulation of points all year, with winners based on the entire year's production.
-Head to Head Points vs. Head to Head each category (my personal favorite): For Head to Head formats, you can either tally up point totals given to particular statistics, just like roto, but for the duration of a week at a time, or you can simply accumulate totals in each of the 10 categories, with a win for each category you win, and a loss for those you don't (you can go any of 10-0, 5-5, 0-10 and anything in between (with ties included)), tallied up weekly setting up for weekly showdowns for the playoffs.
-Categories to count (Typically Runs, Average, HRs, RBIs, Steals, Wins, Ks, ERA, WHIP, Saves): This is where I really want feedback. Many people are trending towards non-traditional categories, and I'd like to give people the opportunity to have as much control of the league as possible. I personally like OBP as opposed to AVG, for example. Some others to consider are Quality Starts vs. Wins, Holds vs. Saves (or Saves + Holds), etc.
-Lastly, league draft rules: Snake Draft or Auction? I have done both, with Snake Drafts being the preference for less experienced players, and Auctions for those more familiar with the game. That by no means someone pretty unfamiliar with fantasy can't do Auctions (it's easy to understand) or "experts" should be above snake drafts, both are great fun.
Share your thoughts here, and lets see if we can make some awesome leagues BCB can be proud of.
