One thing I'd be concerned about, though, especially for baseball is that any H2H format with a weekly deadline has a problem dealing with starting pitching, because sometimes starters go twice in a week, and other times they just pitch once. Sure, you can try to add rules to improve balance (e.g. you might limit a fantasy team to 7 GS per week), but that adds complexity also. Even if a site supported 10 day scoring periods instead of week long ones, there still would be cases where some pitchers might get just one start due to off day(s), and maybe occasionally a team might squeeze in a third start, depending on timing and need.
