Adding the Option for 2 Wins Per Week
Can you please add a Fantasy Football setting for leagues to allow multiple wins per week: 1 win for winning your head-to-head matchup and 1 win for finishing in the top half of the league in scoring.
Therefore, each week, every manager can go 0-2, 1-1 or 2-0.

Another way to reduce "luck" is to play double matchups each week. Some other platforms allow for this and its great...I wish yahoo would add. It increases the action each week, creates more mobility in the standings and also allows for odd numbered leagues (we had a guy drop out last minute). I'd highly recommend.

Please allow us to set the Fantasy Football format to the “2-Win/Week” system. In this system each week everyone will still face a team head to head but will also get a win/loss for finishing top 1/2 of league in points. I have manually been doing this system for years and statistically speaking it removes a lot of the luck factor while rewarding those who score a lot but just have unlucky schedule. I have had years where a top 2 team in points missing the playoffs, and that makes no sense!

This idea really doesn't solve the problem.
Let's say that an 8-team league has these scores during a week:
222, 220, 206, 203, 203, 203, 121, 118
You have 6 teams with a top half of the league score.
Which 4 teams were the top 4?
Do you give the 4th-5th-6th place teams a tie?
A better (more fair) fix would be to have every team play every team every week.
In that scenario, having three teams tie would be no problem.
In that scenario, the highest scoring team come out better than the second highest scoring team every time.
