Always play in head-to-head leagues, not rotisserie (or total points) leagues

Last updated:

The vast majority of fantasy football leagues out there use head-to-head matchups between teams, but there are still those that like to operate rotisserie leagues.

I understand where the rotisserie advocates come from. I’ve finished leagues in the Top 3-4 in total points but finished somewhere in the middle of the pack in total wins.

How is that possible? Luck, of course. Fantasy football is all about matchups in head-to-head leagues, and if you just so happen to have a good week but play against the one team that has an even better week than you, you still suffer a loss.

Still, even though such a situation is disheartening, head-to-head leagues are so much better because a team that gets off to a slow start can still catch up by the end of the season if they make a few transactions and start getting on a roll.
