The real reason Fantasy Football sucks is that a team can finish 2nd in points(my team) and finish 5th and miss the playoffs to a 4th place team who scored the least points in the whole league.(12 team league!!!)

That's exactly the reason why our final Wild Card spots are awarded based on points, not record.

I'm in two leagues, one based solely on record (I miss the playoffs with a 6-8 mark despite a 60% winning percentage in Breakdown, and the #4 point total, and leading the league in scoring 3 times), and one we do half & half. We keep head to head records and have playoffs. Some $$ is applied to this. Also some goes to the top 4 point scorers for the entire season (17 weeks).

If I had my ultimate league, we'd have 14 weeks of just scores, then the top however many scorers would make the playoffs and play it off head to head.

Of course I may just be bitter because I've been in 6 head to head only leagues and have NEVER finished at or above my scoring position, except one year where I was #1 in scoring where 4 teams made the playoffs and I was the 1 seed. The 4 seed was the #2 scoring team and posted the highest score of the season on me.

Variance is a bitch.

One of the many reasons I prefer a points race. Especially if it runs through the Super Bowl- makes draft strategy interesting trying to grab productive players who will also make the playoffs.

No, fantasy football sucks b/c a RB w/ 100 yards and 0 TDs scores fewer points that a fullback that gets a one-yard TD plunge on his only carry.

In most I've played in Rushing TD=6pts and 20 rush yards=1 point. What is the usual then?

That's most definitly not normal. Normal is 1 pt/10 yard and 6 PT TD's. 1 pt/15 is seldom used and 1 pt/20 is almost never used for rushing.

Mine is certainly 20/pts rushing. My commissioner must suck, I'm talking about you, Drew16. Douchebag.

that is an old, antiquated system. newer systems reward more consistent production over td hogs.
