last year i won the championship without any star players. well, marc gasol was dropped by an owner who thought (like everyone else did) that he would be out longer with his abdominal tear so he couldnt hold him. i saw the blurb that he was coming back super early and grabbed him.

my roster was:

conley
lowry
kemba
marc gasol
pau gasol
hayward
ilyasova
brook lopez
pekovic
marion
david west

i auto drafted that year. so the team was pretty bad (had lawson and tyson chandler - had to drop both just before playoffs because of injuries). just had big weeks in the playoffs and the other teams had bad ones. i was 6th ranked going into playoffs out of 10 teams.

In the strike shortened 2012 season, this 5-7 team won the title:

Everything I say is from the viewpoint of the following:
ESPN, 12 Teams, 15 players each, not including one IR spot people might or might not be using at any time. Weekly H2H.  Two year keepers, in the position you drafted them:

PG: Chris Paul (1), Goran Dragic (4), Jeff Teague (5)
SG: Kevin Martin (6), Kyle Korver (11), Mike Dunleavy (FA), Terrence Ross (FA)
SF: Paul Millsap (2), Jimmy Butler (7), Wilson Chandler (8), Danny Green (Trade), Al-Farouq Aminu(FA)
PF: Derrick Favors (9, keeper), Mirza Teletovic (FA)
C:  Anthony Davis (3, keeper)
IR: Nerlens Noel (potential keeper for next year, folks, FA)

I was 4-7 at week 11, but I went 9-1 the rest of the way. But due to a not so great margin of victory, I entered the playoffs as a 6th seed (.500 record) and still managed to win the whole thing. I don't think my team was THAT bad, I just had some injury issues. I basically streamed the entire season (I had 80 moves which was 30 more than the guy behind me). This was the team I drafted:
Uncle Drew & Friends 1. (11) Kyrie Irving(Cle - PG) 2. (14) James Harden(Hou - SG,SF) 3. (35) Anthony Davis(NO - PF,C) 4. (38) Marcus Thornton(Sac - SG) 5. (59) Roy Hibbert(Ind - C) 6. (62) Tim Duncan(SA - PF,C) 7. (83) Andrea Bargnani(NY - PF,C) 8. (86) Michael Beasley(Mia - SF,PF) 9. (107) Darren Collison(LAC - PG) 10. (110) Bradley Beal(Was - SG) 11. (131) Rodney Stuckey(Det - PG,SG) 12. (134) Marvin Williams(Uta - SF) 13. (155) Gerald Henderson
And this is the team I ended up with

Jimmy Butler
Anthony Davis
Jeff Green
James Harden
Maurice Harkless
Spencer Hawes
Gerald Henderson
Roy Hibbert
Kyrie Irving
Jarrett Jack
Shawn Marion
Klay Thompson
Beno Udrih

I was playing in a 10-team roto league with my friends in 2008-09. I started taking Amare Stoudemire (who had a career year and finished #2 the previous year), Allen Iverson (#12 in 2007-08), and Kevin Martin (#21 in 2007-08). Amare absolutely sucked and got injured, Iverson got traded and was borderline useless all year long, and Martin obviously got injured too.

Several months into the season, I realized there was no way I could win without tanking points, so I ended up trading aggressively with my friends. David Lee (16.0 ppg) and Kevin Garnett (15.8 ppg until he got injured with 25 games left) were my top scorers, Brook Lopez at 13.0 ppg was my 3rd scorer. I loaded up on guys like Jose Calderon, Mo Williams, and Chris Duhon to shore my guard stats, along with Rasheed Wallace and Shawn Marion to help my big man stats. I also benefited from grabbing guys like Chris Andersen, Ronny Turiaf, Dominic McGuire, Delonte West, Francisco Garcia, Jamario Moon, etc., all of whom logged at least several weeks of games on my team. I ended up winning by one point, nearly 2000 points behind the next worst-scoring team (which played like 50 fewer games than me).

6th out of 10, your league loses credibility when you allow more than half the teams to make the playoffs. You should have never been there to begin with.

H2H is more fun for me when I play in a league where all the teams are managed by friends. I get to s--- on my friends each week when I stomp them lmao. What I'm trying to say is, H2H is more fun in some situations because you get to ****talk people. s--- talk kinda doesn't really make much sense for roto. I agree that roto is more balanced when it comes to determining the winner and whatnot though. Any random team can catch a lucky break in the playoffs even if they don't necessarily have the best team.

Pretty unusual in basketball/baseball due to the number of games/weeks in the season.

Happens quite often in football, I would imagine. One of my football teams this year made the championship (and lost) of a 16 team league even though my team had the 2nd fewest points scored. I started Chris Ogbonnaya, Bobby Rainey, and Mike Brown in the championship round, and got deservedly smoked by the team with Peyton Manning, Jamaal Charles, and LeSean McCoy.

It doesn't matter whether you drafted a "projected" 1st round player, if that's what you meant. Just look at your team, you had Curry, Duncan, and Aldridge posting round 1 value last season. Paul George, Kyrie, and Batum posting round 2 value. And the rest of the team is also crazy. This is not a "bad championship team," more like an "excellent championship team," and so I would question the competition in your league. Not a surprise you swept your league with this team.

Curry.
Duncan.
George.
Batum.
Klay Thompson.
Dragic.
Aldridge.
Faried.
Walker.
Irving.
Mayo.
JR. Smith.
KG.
