This is exactly why my main league determines the champion by total points scored during the entire season rather than rely on the vagaries of head-to-head results. It eliminates some of the weekly drama but we find it fairer in establishing who built the best team.
I hear what you're saying but to me head to head makes me more aware of matchups, which gets easier to determine as the season progresses. Depth is very important in that regard. I have benched studs before depending on how the matchup is for the week. I benched Aaron Rogers and used my back up QB and had better results. This weekend I am playing Kirk Cousins over Brees. Brees is on the road against Carolina. I will take the chance with the 2nd year QB against the shit tastic Dallas D.
