Allow a mix of head to head as well as top half of scorer earn a point for standing
For example if you win and you are the 5th highest scorer for the week in a 10 man league you get 2 points towards your standing if you’re 6th and win you go 1-1 if you lose and are bottom half you go 0-2 or you lose and are top half for the week you go 1-1 it’s a way to negate unlucky matchups and praise consistency while having the head to head experience

Its a nice hybrid of head to head and pure points.
Pure points has the disadvantage of a single player score in one week impacting the entire season.
Head to head has the problem of bad luck facing the wrong opponent on a given week or a schedule where some teams get to play weak teams twice, others play the best teams twice.
The mix is alot like daily. Top 5 teams get a win, bottom 5 get a loss (for a 10 team league). Its more talent based bc if your team is in the top half they get a win.
Please try it. I am sure it will become the most popular version of fantasy football.
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.
