Hmmm I'm undecided, not sure if I can be bothered

The other formats are superior because you're forced to assemble a balanced team.

"H2H: Each category" is good, but you sometimes end the week with results. For example, nobody wants to see JayJay vs. Adam end at 5-5-2. It's always best to have clear winners/losers at the end of the week.

"H2H: Most Categories" has the best of both worlds--it requires a fair amount of skill, and you're sure to experience either the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat.

I'd definitely be willing to play either "H2H: Each Category" or "H2H: Most Categories."
High-quality post.

Again, I'll play just about any fantasy hoops format - and enjoy it.

However, I also need to cast a vote here. And BD is correct. H2H: Most Categories retains some of the worthwhile aspects of standard roto (for instance, emphasis on well-rounded players and balanced rosters due to a variety of statistical columns) while producing the excitement and lively banter of head-to-head match-ups that end with a clear-cut winner each week.

So, H2H: Most Categories gets my vote.

When you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all.
