Default Fantasy Question

hey im making a fantasy league with some mates on yahoo but we dont know what system to use:

There is the choice of rotisserie, head to head or points only.

Could someone explain the differences between the 3 and suggest which one they would use or which one is most commonly used.

Thanks it would be much appreciated.

Scoring Style

There are many variations used when scoring fantasy basketball. The more common variations are detailed below.


In rotisserie scoring, the real-life statistics accumulated by the players on a team are aggregated and ranked against the same statistics for the other teams in the league. Fantasy points are earned based on these rankings. For example, in a twelve-team league, the team with the highest number of rebounds over the course of the season to date would be awarded twelve fantasy points. The team with the next highest number of rebounds would be awarded eleven fantasy points, and so on, with the team with the fewest number of rebounds being awarded a single fantasy point. For negative categories like fouls or turnovers, the team with the fewest statistics are awarded the most fantasy points. This is done for all categories counted by the particular league. The team with the highest number of fantasy points at the end of the season is the winner.

Rotisserie scoring encourages balance on the team's roster. Winning the rebounds category by one rebound or by one thousand rebounds counts the same, while winning the steals category by one steal and the assists category by one assist is worth twice as many points as winning the single rebounding category by one thousand rebounds. Successful teams must fare well in several categories to win in rotisserie leagues.

Head-to-Head (H2H)

In head-to-head scoring, teams are scheduled to "play" each other over the course of a week. During that week, the real-life statistics of the players on each team are accumulated. Whichever team has the more favorable statistics in a category (most points, fewest turnovers, highest free throw percentage) is awarded a "win" for that category. The other team is tagged with a "loss". The results of these weekly matchups are accumulated to provide a seasonal win-loss record.

Head-to-head leagues often employ a "playoff" system, with seeding based on the seasonal win-loss record. Matchups are determined via a bracket, with the winners of each matchup advancing and the losers being eliminated until a winner is determined.

Fantasy Point

In fantasy point scoring, the commissioner determines the number of fantasy points that a particular statistic is worth. For example, the commissioner may determine that a steal is worth two fantasy points, where a rebound is only worth one, and a turnover is worth negative one. Fantasy points are accumulated nightly based on the real-life performance of the players on each team, and the team with the most fantasy points at the end of the season wins.

As when choosing categories, care must be paid in assigning fantasy point values to categories. Failure to achieve balance will result in weighting the league for or against players at certain positions.

Not sure how accurate that is. I'm not a fantasy basketball guru or anything. But thought it might help.

simple. in rotisserie...its everyone against everyone..and whoever ends up with the best stats at the end of the season wins the whole league.

head to head is much better. u face off against another team each week and you accumalte and win-loss record. best teams go into the playoffs where a winner is decided.

If you are playing with friends, definitely go with a head to head league. It feels more like a competition and less like a fundraiser. It's also a lot of fun to trash talk your friends' teams. It gives the game more variety because your team has to be able to match up well different opponets so sometimes lineup changes are required. All-around it's more enjoyable experience.
