Looking at some options for a completely fun 12 team league. No money is changing hands, so as commissioner, a lot of latitude for mixing it up. Some options:
1. Eight team make the playoffs, four don't, and those eight contend for the title in weeks 14-16.
2. Everyone is in the playoffs. The top 4 seeds get a week 13 bye (or play each other for smack talking fun). In week 13 the other 8 have to qualify for the next round: #5 plays #12, #6 plays #11, etc.
3. We have one playoff in week 16. Teams are seeded by their record and total points scored through 15 weeks. Then #1 plays #2, #3 plays #4, #11 plays #12, and so on.
Shouldn't we have figured this out earlier, you ask? We created this league thinking there was a decent chance the season might get cancelled a few weeks in.
Which do you like?
