Running a 7 team tournament

I am running a men's tournament and we have a 7 team division to work around. Was curious people's thoughts on how to do it. Obviously a full round robin is out with that many teams. Right now, my plan is:

2 random round robin games per team with best PCT. determining seeding for the playoff round.

Playoff Structure debating 3 ideas.

1. Quarters: 1st bye, 2 vs. 7, 3 vs. 6, 4 vs. 5
Semis: 1st vs. 4th best seed remaining, 2nd best vs. 3rd best

2. Quarters: 1st bye, 2 vs. 5, 3 vs. 4, 6 vs. 7
Semis: 1st vs. winner of 6/7, 2/5 winner vs. 3/4 winner

3. Quarters: 1st bye, 2 vs. 7, 3 vs. 6, 4 vs. 5
Semis: 1st vs. choice of remaining, other teams left play each other

Trying to get creative with it but it's tough with 7.

Any thoughts?
