Time for a new thread, so have at it, folks! It's getting to that time of year where it seems like every win is grinding it out. A lucky break either way can mean making or missing the playoffs. I'm sitting at 4-4 and need to get at least another 3 wins to sneak into the playoffs. As we all know, once you get there, anything can and often does happen.
Looking to spice up the playoffs in your league?: Last year my league start implementing a +5 homefield advantage during the playoffs (so that it somewhat simulates the real NFL playoffs). Personally, I like it in that it rewards the higher seeds and allows them to negate a bit of the luck that inevitably occurs from week to week. However, like the Super Bowl, there is no homefield advantage bump for the championship. I had some doubters in the league at first, but it really amplifies the intensity of the playoffs now. Highly recommended for all the serious leagues out there.
As always, we welcome your questions and general fantasy tidbits. Try to be specific about your type of league and the matchups the players you're asking about are facing.
