Fantasy Football Rules you’d tweak...
1. DST scoring either needs to be tweaked to be made more intelligent or just throw it out entirely.

2. Just make TE an extra flex, there’s not enough respectable ones to go around. Having to start a guy you hope can get you 6 or so points just because seems kind of dated. There were basically 3 TEs you could throw out there confidently on a weekly basis this season, other than that kind of a dart throw. OJ Howard hasn’t played in a month and is still a top 10 TE.

3. Probably time to move on from H2H but I get why some are against this.

This. Nothing more frustrating than being the second highest scorer of the week and fricking lose.

Don't penalize the D/ST if the offense turns the ball over and they give up a score on a drive that started in the red zone.

You can just draft one of those elite tightends then. Its not like they went top 3. Dont see how making things easier is better for fantasy football.

Im mixed on this. All my top 6/bottom 6 leagues are really boring but I prefer that format. I like the hybrid one I did this year, only issue with that is keeping up with records by hand.

No way to implement that.

I saw some had a Home Field Advantage rule. Higher seeds gets something like +5 points to start off. I think that's a cool idea.

not exactly sure on that yet, but its a game of individual players and for Ds we just punt on that and make it an entire unit you have to start just because.

Get rid of DST and Kickers and add a flex. Did this in TDFL and I like it a lot.

Tempted to get rid of TE and add a flex, but I'll have to think about it more. Seems like most TEs are just worthless.

I had kittle in most leagues so I was fine...Point remains the position has been a shite show the last few years, I think in part because the game has changed and an overall quality issue. I don't think it makes it any easier, an extra flex would require more thought than just sticking a guy out there and hoping for the best.

In the TD Auction League there is no H2H. It's top 6 scores each week and even in the playoffs. You get a win if you are in the top 6 each week.

I disagree with this. If you had an elite TE, it could mask deficiencies elsewhere. It also comes into the draft strategy. I had Kelce all year and it made my team elite because my guy would outscore my opponents TE by double in all but 1-2 matchups. I also took him with a 3rd round pick, so I gave up significant value at the RB or WR position to get him.

re: Fantasy Football Rules you’d tweak...
For DST scoring, I've always wondered what the norm was as I've never had two leagues score it the same. My favorite is the sliding scale with 0 points allowed (equals 14 points) up to 14+ pts allowed (equals zero points) plus the usual sack=1, turnover=2, and DTD=6.

My main league has a toilet bowl for the worst two teams (played on championship weekend), loser technically should be buying some beer for the next year's draft. I'm going to propose for next season that the toilet bowl teams should not be able to add/drop players after the regular season is over.

having that positional advantage doesn't make you elite necessarily. You drafted Kelce as a WR2 and its basically what you got.

More home field advantage leagues where the squad with the better reg season record gets some points added in playoff matchups.

re: Fantasy Football Rules you’d tweak...
what about a two week playoff for the top 4 teams? I kind of like that idea, it somewhat gives the top two seeds protection from being KO'd after one bad week.

In my "main" money league we implemented a hybrid system two years ago where you play two games per week - h2h and total points (which are tallied offline on a spreadsheet updated weekly). So, you can go 2-0, 1-1, 0-2, etc. each week.

It has been a much better, and fairer, experience than pure h2h and offsets the shitty outcomes where you lose a game scoring 150 points and some assbag gets a win scoring 75 because he had the lucky draw of a good h2h matchup.

This year, the top 4 playoff seeds were uncoincidentally the 4 highest scorers.

Highly recommend this hybrid system.

ETA: in the playoffs, we revert back to pure h2h each week.

re: Fantasy Football Rules you’d tweak...
I don’t like DST starting with 10. Never understood the idea of going backward. They should start at 0 with additional points earned for INTs, sacks and bonuses for holding teams to under 10 points, 200 yards etc etc

I also don’t buy the narrative drive by the TE backers that you should draft an elite TE early and gain an advantage. In my main league, two teams with the elite TEs didn’t even make the finals.

Ultimately, FF is about WW pickups, avoiding injuries and, in general, managing your team well. But luck can trump all of that. One way to combat that is weekly winners. I know someone who went 11-2 last year and lost first round. But they still made $250 by having the high score in five weeks. Softens the blow a bit and makes each week worth playing for, even for 2-10 teams in Week 13
