Hey guys, Im going to be running my own league I decided this year. What do you guys figure works best as far as yahoo settings goes to start a league? H2H or points? what stats...? I dont want to do anything too complicated, but I dont want it to be one those lame leagues with like 3 categories. Any help would be greatly appreciated. What do you guys think the other managers would like best?


thanks

do regular rotissiere (sp) style. Takes the luck out of the game, and requires managers to use skill.

In a Rotisserie League, fantasy teams are ranked from first to last in each of several statistical categories. Points are then awarded according to the order of finish in each category and are totaled to determine an overall score and place. Know your rules. For instance, if you're in a 10-team league, the team that finished first in a category earns 10 points, the second-place team gets nine points, third place eight points and so forth down to the last-place team getting one point. So the team with the most home runs by its 14 offensive players receives 10 points, while the team with the least number of home runs gets just one point. This system works for all categories, each of which have equal value, so the most points a team in a 10-team league with eight categories could receive if it won every category is 80 points.

I beg to differ fumbler. I can see your point if you have just basic stat catorgories, BUT, if you have some of the tougher cats, it does come down to skill. Anyone can play in a league where just the basic catergories are used, and not even be very active.
