There's nothing to make up. Points are relative to the field, and there's less points available for everyone. Each player maps out their annual scheduling to best suit their needs. Shifting up or down a couple of positions here and there as the season progresses through the calendar is expected. Only the top few are likely to be stressed about a small shift.
