I've mentioned this before, but a rule I've played with (in a league we kept by hand) was the potential for two wins every week: one head-to-head against your opponent and another for the top five scorers (assuming a 10-team league) in a given week. That evens out good or bad teams being helped or hurt by scheduling.
