Allow weekly high points payout - paid out at the end of the season.
Keep track of highest points per week. Which team has the highest points among all teams in the league. Each week the team with the high points for that week will get paid. In my league (manually done) it's $20 per week throughout the playoffs. Keeps everyone engaged (even the ones out of the playoffs). Also allows anyone to make back the buy in. Ex. Team 1 wins 4 weeks of high points for the season. At the end of the season they would get $80. Every week there is a guarantied winner.
Thanks for your suggestion. I will pass that along to our product team.
