Bonus Wins and Losses is a setting in League Manager (LM) leagues only that helps reward those teams that may score a ton of points, but manage to face the high-scoring teams more often than not. Put another way, Bonus Wins/Losses is a fairer way to recognize a Team Manager's effectiveness. It reduces the impact of H2H schedule luck and rewards stronger team lineups.
League Managers (LMs) can activate this scoring setting to award an additional Win or Loss based on a team's matchup score versus the rest of the league. If the team's matchup score places them in the top half of the leagues for that week, that team will receive an extra Win. If that team's matchup score for the week is in the bottom half of the rest of the league for that week, the team will receive an additional loss.
Bob's Bruisers lost their matchup but scored the second highest points total in the league in Week 1. As a result, Bob's Bruisers will have a 1-1 record after Week 1 (1 Loss for the matchup, 1 Win for scoring in the top half for their league).
