Double header options, Please!
Chandler Schott commented
Yes please! I've been saying yahoo needs to have double header leagues for years! I'm one of those teams who misses playoffs yet has one of the most points in the league!

Another person mentioned this idea, and I voted for it. But it needs to be mentioned again! We need double header leagues! For those who are unfamiliar, a double header league means you play 2 head to head matchups each week.
Playing 2 teams each week provides many advantages. The first being that it provides a better balance between head to head and overall points. It's a ****** feeling when you have the 2nd highest score in the league, only to lose to the highest scoring team. With double-headers, at least you would pick up 1 win in this situation, and the week isn't a total loss. For the past 3 years in our league the team with either the most or 2nd most points has missed out on the playoffs. I know people will say we could just switch to overall points rather than head to head, but it's not as fun just counting points compared to playing head to head against your buddy. Instead of playing 13 games, each team is now playing 26 games, which will help the stronger teams get in the playoffs and weed out the lucky ones who skate by each week.
2nd, it provides you with more players to watch each week! You will now be concerned with 3 teams rather than just 2, increasing the likelihood you have a reason to watch the games on Thursday or Monday nights.
Please give us double-header leagues!!!

Yes, a double header one head to head and the other vs the league average. This helps even out those with the highest points who are just unlucky.
I'd prefer to see Yahoo use "All In Play" for league standings.
Have each team play every other team every week.
It would solve the problem that you want to solve.
And,it would be more fair.

Because Y! are a bunch of yahoos. They'll never figure that out. My 9 yr old knows more than they do.

I've been asking for this for several years, we used double headers last season and it was awesome. It created alot of extra work for me as the commissioner however it allowed us to have a balanced schedule and a full 16 game schedule. We're only a 10 team league but used double headers on weeks 4 & 11 so we made sure not to overlap the bye weeks.
I know they can add this feature....not sure why they haven't.
I'm interested in hearing how others have used double headers
Begging you Yahoo, let's spice it up and allow for a double header, this has been on the discussion board for some time now and really don't understand why it hasn't been integrated into the system.
Double headers could be an option surrounding the bye weeks. Think about it - you could go 2-0 in one week or have the league leader go 0-2 for a playoff push/bust!
Would like to know reasons for this not happening - please email follow up. Maybe 2017 season is too late to get this rolling, maybe not!
thanks for following up.
