Sure, there is room for unique picks. But looking at the top 10 teams, everyone has the same 3-5 players. So it's like it doesn't even matter that you picked them.
I'm keeping track of the top 5 teams just see who I need to root for / against. Everyone had Ivey, Hellmuth, Selbst and Elky. So Selbst's win this week, Hellmuth's One Drop FT or Elky's top 2 stack at the Championship event doesn't matter because we all get the same points.
Even having Mercier, Greenstein or Negreanu doesn't do you any good because 4 out of 5 teams at the top have them.
Maybe we should make a rule that a your team's last year POY points total can't exceed xyz. This way it's like an auction type draft. You can't fill your roster with all the A+ players. Phil Ivey will cost you a lot so you have to fill the rest of your team with C or D players. Or you go with a team full of B players etc.
