Impact of Japan Games on Fantasy

Postby ny4train » Thu Mar 20, 2008 6:00 pm

i am the commish in a 12-team, h2h, points-based weekly league. i am in the same boat as a few others on here but haven't heard a sound answer yet to this dilemma. i am trying to figure out what is the most fair way to address week 1 of the regular season, given the fact that the red sox and a's play 2 extra games during that week due to starting the season earlier in japan.

if i start the fantasy season on the 25th and count the japan games, then teams with red sox and a's players get 2 extra games, which is a big advantage in a weekly h2h league. however, if i start the league on the 30th, then the first week is 'fair' because each team will be playing 5 or 6 games, but the red sox and a's players will be playing 2 fewer games over the subsequent 24 weeks of the season.

i'm at a loss as to what is the right way to handle this in a h2h, points league. i don't want to give a big advantage to any team in the first week. and then again, i don't want to put an owner who happens to have sox or a's on his team at a slight disadvantage the rest of the season.

any sound resolutions?

Add the games to the first week.

The players who are given an edge will have it taken away over the course of the season as they'll have 2 fewer games the rest of the season. At the end of the day, it comes out in the wash.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

sound advice....

do what sportsline is doing for leagues starting on 3/25 - as someone pointed out in another thread, Period 1 of the stats will go 3/25 thru 4/6 provided you use a Monday to Sunday weekly setup.
