Commissioner Guide, League Formats - Footballguys

Our commissioner guide looks at different league formats

Changing the format of your league can be a great way to shake things up. After playing with the same group for a season or two, you learn a lot about the league and what everyone wants from it. Sometimes, you may only need to add or change a few rules to keep things interesting. Other times, you may want to completely change the format of a league, and start out fresh with a different approach. This article will focus on large-scale format changes to existing leagues.

WHEN AND HOW TO IMPLEMENT

When you're looking at changing the entire format of your fantasy league, you really need to think about why you want to make this switch. Do you fall in love with certain players and want to have them on your team year after year? Do you hate the randomness of defensive scoring and want to move to a more consistent format with individual defensive players? Do you hate the draft order and the fact that pulling the wrong number out of a hat will prevent you from having the players that you really want? Whatever your reason, make sure that it improves the league and the overall experience of all of your owners. Implementing a big format change may reduce or eliminate the fun for one or two owners and they may simply drop out rather than stick with the new league. You should always consider the good of the league before making any changes.
