This is going to sound really conceited, but honestly, I hate when luck is invovled, because I honestly think that in most (obviously not all) of the matchups I'm in, I am confident that I am the better fantasy player. Less luck, means higher chance the better player wins, so low luck is the way I like it.
I don't know how you categorize luck, but shoot, if you're in first place in 2 H2H leagues, second in 1 H2H, and third in another H2H...all the while finishing no worse than 5th in your H2H career headed into this year and having won the whole enchilada in 60% of them...then you're doing something right.
The way I see it, H2H and roto present different challenges; it doesn't necessarily make one format better than the other per se. Just by the week-by-week nature of H2H, it's easy to discredit some results as being attributed to luck, but the fun therein lies in the unpredictability of it all, especially in the playoffs...essentially, it's a fun test to see if your team - like in the real world playoffs - can come through in "do or die" situations. In roto, the team that appears to be the best balanced or the best valued all around is likely to take the competition. This can be deflating, if by June/July, you know you can't make up much ground in your most crucial categories, but the inherent fun in that is you're in it for the full marathon effect of the season.
