Unfortunately. In my league the #1 seed has won 4 of the last 4 years. The 2 years prior went to the 2 seed and 6th seed. Too lazy to go back further.
I believe it is somewhat due to our scoring, which aims to equalize all positions, and rewards longer tds. A 1 yard vulture only gets 3 points.

0-5 : 3pt
Passing and Receiving
Eliminates those Jerome Bettis 3 rush for 2 yds 3tds 21 point games. So bogus.
We also only award 1 pt for 20 rush/rec and 50 passing.

Our salaries are also based on points scored from the previous season. With all tds at 6 or 7, with 1pt for 10 yards rushing, Guys like Gurly would take 1/3 of our cap and almost assure the top drafter with a mediocre draft a playoff birth every season.
It seems like a race to the bottom would ensue.

You can’t get hung up on the players that got you here but haven’t been playing well lately/situations have changed. You have to be able to have the balls to make the right start/sit decision. But there are cases like Hill who have dominated and was inches away from long TDs in his ‘bad’ games that you must stick with. The upside is so huge he can single handedly win you a playoff game.

I agree. I know it's an unpopular opinion, but I have 2 leagues that don't have playoffs and I like them better for the most part. No stupid bouncing in week 13/14. Also makes it feel like skill still counts a bit more than luck. You could have a bad week 14 and still have time to recover. But we do play all the way to week 16 and sometimes week 17 (there are rules in place that determine when / if week 17 will be played) and I know that's also unpopular.
