Most leagues wrap up during week 16 as teams tend to rest many of their players after locking-up a playoff birth with little to play for. Some fantasy leagues, however, still do rely on week 17 games..
As I highlighted recently, one of my main dynasty leagues (that I share with the two other partners here at DLF) instituted a two-week championship week spanning weeks 16 and 17. The championship teams are decided after week 15 but then go on to play back-to-back games in order to determine a winner. Win both games and you’re the champion. Split the games and the team with the most points wins the ring. It’s actually been a very fun way to extend the season to the full 17 games while providing something other than the one-and-done championship week. As for the other teams, they are seeded and reseeded in weeks 16 and 17 for final determination of standings and draft position.
Good luck to you if you have a championship game this week and get your questions in early! Also, be sure to check my Week 17 Blog article for information about who may be resting this week.
Let the questions roll…
