Is that something that should be taken in to account when talking about % lead over peers?
It is no doubt, statically easier all thing being equal (which they never are in these things but let's pretend they are) for a guy to have a larger chance at a lead in a 5 team league than say a 21-30 team league.

Variance is just more likely to occur more often in a larger sample.
