Our league has used 2 matchups per round in the head-to-head format.
We are thinking about moving to 4 matchups per round. Last year, by sheer scheduling chance, the last few rounds of play featured top half teams squaring up against bottom half teams. The last three or four rounds were a complete bloodbath of the top half destroying the bottom half. And, it sort of made for a boring ending because none of the standings actually changed. Everyone in the top gained, and everyone in the bottom lost.
So, we are pondering moving to four matchups to hedge against that happening again. But, I’m very curious about other folks’ opinions. Does your league use four matchups? Does it work pretty well? Any gotchas?
Thanks for reading.
