How does your league pay out?

Recommended Posts

Just curious. I hope this isn’t too far off topic for the forum, but it would be buried in a sea of “rate my team” posts in the advice forum. We pay out the top two (40% and 25%) to total points for the year. SB winner gets third, and one pay out for 3rd in total points. First year playing FF I went 11-2 and lost my first playoff game in an off week. Is it the norm to pay out the most for a SB win? Do most head-tohead leagues play the SB in week 16 if it pays the most?

The league I run pays more for total points than H2H.

 

I prefer this type since H2H tends to benefit the luckiest team for 3 weeks at the end of the year.

Home league:

 

60% goes to 1st place.

30% goes to 2nd place.

6% goes to 3rd place.

4% goes to 4th place.

 

Week 16 Bowl games, 12 team league and we charge $4.00 per transaction fee to bump the pot up.

55% 1st place

30% 2nd place

15% 3rd place

 

The prize pool is usually round $4,000 so the payouts are in the range of $2,200, $1,200 and $600 respectively. The entry fee is $350 plus transaction costs during the season. This does not include Division winner and Toilet Bowl payouts.

We pay 50% to the Super Bowl winner, 20% to 2nd place, 10% to 3rd place and 20% to the total point winner (with total points going through Week 16).

 

We like it because if you win the Super Bowl and have the most points you get 70%. If you get boned and lose in the semis but have the best team you get 30%. Seems a pretty good system.

 

Also, the last team to make the playoffs does so based on points not record. The first 5 teams make the playoffs based solely on record. So if a team was unlucky during the season with the schedule, it still will make the playoffs if it has a top 6 point total.

 

We used to have only 5 teams make the playoffs (12 team league) and perhaps having half the teams make the playoffs is excessive (dont tell that to the NBA and the NHL though, 2/3 of those teams make the playoffs). But since you win nothing unless you come in third or better it protects the top teams (especially the 2 with bye weeks). The point total award also protects the team that was best througout the season.

 

Seems to work well so far.

in our toilet bowl the winner gets his transactions for free for the year. We preload $35 so its a minimum of $35 to the winner.

We use EQUAL payouts for 1st/2nd/3rd place standings in both Total Points AND the playoff finishes. We also tend to give a weekly bonus to the high point scorer every week. So if we had $1000 to dole out, it would look like

 

1st points - $200

2nd points - $100

3rd points - $40

 

Superbowl winner - $200

Superbowl runnerup - $100

Consolation bowl winner - $40

 

Each weekly high score - $20 x 16 weeks ($320)

We do both. For head to head, each team get $5 for each win during the season. Then there is also a 70/20/10 split of the remaining money for the Total Points for the season.

I am in 3 leagues and all 3 pay differently.

 

1 league is total points scored and the top 2 teams get paid 70/30

 

1 league division winners get some and top 2 teams get the rest after Superbowl week 16

 

other league division winners get some and then everybody makes the playoffs with the top 4 teams getting a bye in the first round. Top 2 teams get paid but it pays more for winning your division then it does for the superbowl. I think the commish in this league has a major crack problem though :D

We do the same. All teams make the playoffs (this keeps everyone in it through week 14). One head-to-head against all other teams in weeks 1-11, top two in each 6 team division gets a bye for weeks 12 and 13, and the rest battle it out for a combined two-week score in weeks 12 and 13. SB in week 16. SB is more fun than anything, and if you get a late season burt you can still win, which makes it fun for two weeks anyway.

No money for having the most points unless you win high scorer in any given week.

Just offer prize money for high scorer of the week. We play prize money through Week 16 so that the people who don't make the playoffs or who don't have a chance to make the playoffs stay active. Everyone making the playoffs makes the season worthless.

My league is a total points league. My other local is H2H but the sixth playoff spot goes to the team not in playoffs (3 div winners, next two best records) with the highest point total. The only way that doesn't happen is if there are three teams tied with the next best record. Playoffs for all the $, but there is a toilet bowl for all the non-playoff teams.

My FFL money league pays out as follows

 

"37% WWFFL Bowl Winner

17% WWFFL Bowl Runner up

10% To each Division Winner

2% Each Week (Regular Season) to the League's Top Scoring Team."

 

 

We find if we spread out the prizes to weekly winners in addition to division winners and the playoff winner and runner-up, more people stay involved all year, instead of ignoring their team once they are eliminated from the playoff race.
