4 creates the same amount of drama as 6, except the middle of the standings will battle it out. 6 allows in more people--I like 6 or 4 (although I like 4 better because Fantasy Bye Weeks are stupid).
Edit: I'm wrong--all teams would get to play in the playoffs, but the non "playoff" teams would get put in the consolation rounds! #7 and #8 would play to NOT be last I think.
