Monday begins playoff time in a good percentage of head-to-head leagues. For some they will begin the following Monday. Regardless, it’s time to start focusing in on the schedule. Especially for those in deeper counting stat category leagues where one goal, assist, hit, blocked shot, penalty minute or faceoff win can mean the difference in winning a category and advancing to the second week.
It’s the difficult part of playing in head to head leagues. Should one load up on players who will be playing in 4 games this week? Or should you keep your roster status quo? A lot of that will depend on your league’s roster size and allowable adds per week because if you do advance past the first round you obviously have additional weeks where you’ll need your best players.
