Not always the case, at the end of the day, it is based on how your player performs. Hypothetically, if I had 2-3 games more than my opponent but Beasley and Hawes sucks it up and makes 20% fg with 3 to's each, then that is a drawback to me and the chances of me losing that category rises and having more game is negated.
But then my opponent has a player like Varejao who does 9/23/9 for one game, he pretty much reached the rebound goal that you hope for for that player for that week in that one game so anything else after that is a bonus and it negate having less games that week.
As I mentioned in the message on yahoo, some weeks you have more game while others you don't, it eventually evens out. Strategy is to use your waivers/pick-ups well and put it towards either making up for the stats you need or adding to the stats you don't want your opponent catching up to, all while not going overboard and dropping players that may do well in the long-run. Also look at the match-ups of players for that week, in our format, we have plenty of players we have to bench so that nights match-up matter even more, it might not always be about putting your highest ranked players every night.
