I currently have 20 regular season match-ups
Top 4 make playoffs (2wk matchs)
Bottom 6 were in the default "ladder" format on ESPN which I absolutley hate. No incentives to win what so ever.
I have had issues in the past with teams streaming in the winners bracket, teams dumping players and benching players in order to lose and gain a higher spot in the draft.
I like having 2 week winners matchups because in baseball there is usually no flukes, the better team should win. I believe you should always be playing for something even if your out of it to keep up interest and competition.
I floated the idea of a bottom 4 playoff winner gets #1 draft spot, but this leaves me having the 5 & 6 seeds playing for a month straight which I'm not thrilled about to win the 5th place prize of $35.
I've also floated the idea of my own version of the "ladder" but in reverse (winner moves down & losers move up) i.e. 5v6 7v8 9v10. 6,8,10 win then 5v7 (winner drafts 5th) 6v9 (winner #3) & 8v10 (winner #1 pick)
Another idea I've floated is a draft lottery based off of regular season finishing place and playoff performance. Consolation winner gets a higher % chance and reg season 10th would be assigned the most chance to pull #1.
Are there any suggestions what I should do? A different format I could consider? Other incentives or penalties I could lay out?
Also if a draft lottery is the best idea, what is the best way to go about setting it up? as I have never done a lottery before.
Lastly is there any way to stop pitcher streaming? esp in the playoffs. This past year I had a 3 acquisition limit per match-up which greatly reduced the ability to do so but some people still tried (against me but failed). It's a cowardly way to play and is a major pet peeve of mine and want to stop it.
