7 man ESPN league

I am the commish of our office league and we only have 7 people interested this year. Do I try and simulate and 8th team or does one person just play against the average of the other 6 teams? I am not opposed to something that requires a little manual work. Any thoughts or tips would be appreciated!

With 7 teams I think you could have each team play “two games” a week.

Someone please confirm… does this work?

If so, you can adjust this type of schedule to make a full season.

I would go with double headers each week or one team plays against the league average for that week.
