end The regular season at the all star break, and have a double elimination tournament for the 8 playoffs teams to crown the champion!
Our league loves playing fantasy baseball, but the season gets so long winded, and some loss interest in the 2nd half, and also fantasy Football begins to gear up.... our league would like to have an option of ending our 12 team regular season at the all star break, and then begin a very interesting double elimination playoff tournament for the 8 playoff teams that move on! Thank you for entertaining this idea!297th ranked
This is mostly for Fantasy basketball but please implement in all 4 of the major fantasy sports. Allow the commisioner to set the playoffs to be any week they choose. For example I would start my playoffs in Fantasy basketball to start in week 16 and the reason why is with all the player resting and teams tanking during the end of the season it makes the Fantasy playoffs a mess. So many players rest and teams tanking sit players that it is possible that a majority of your players are unavailable during the playoff weeks. This is a major issue. Please give the commisioners more control of when and what happens in their leagues.

Please allow for adjustable schedules in the future. Please give Commissioners the option to begin the playoffs in week 19 for example in a 10 team league217th ranked
We have a 10 team keeper league and I would like to create stakes for the Consolation playoffs at the end of the season.
My solution is having them compete for top draft picks the following year.
I would like to be able to manipulate the consolation bracket so that the 5th/6th have their own consolation playoff (for 5th/6th picks), and 7th/8th/9th/10th have a consolation playoff (for 1st/2nd/3rd/4th picks)
Currently the Consolation playoffs are locked with the 5th-8th place teams in the consolation297th ranked
Hey Jeb, thanks very much for your feedback. Unfortunately we don’t have the capability to customize the brackets as you describe. However, we do have the ability to custom seed the first round of the playoffs. Check the info out here:

Would it be possible to set the calendar of matches for the regular season in the leagues in order to have the same number of matches with each team?
Would it be possible to set the start of the playoffs before week 22? To avoid the final weeks of the season when many teams start testing new players, right at the most important moment for fantasy leagues?352nd ranked
Hey Andrea, thanks very much for your feedback! Your commissioner can edit the league schedule by following the steps outlined here:
Regarding your second suggestion, our team is evaluating more customizable playoff start dates.
Thanks for playing! Good luck this season!

We commissioners used to have this power. And now even the "help desk" doesn't have the power. We have a 3-way tie for 2 spots, and Yahoo left out the wrong team, even by its tie-breaker system. And the help desk says there is no way to "fix" this. So I have to score the playoffs by hand. Ugh.143rd ranked
This is getting ridiculous, ESPN allows me to start my playoffs in week 19. Absolutely inexcusable that we are not allowed the same courtesy in Yahoo. Robbie Ray throwing a start of 1.2 IP on the final day of the championship is a disgrace. Please fix this ASAP or I'll be taking another league to ESPN.165th ranked
Instead of the higher seed moving on in a tie breaker scenario, H2H meetings during the regular season should be #1 tie breaker....That would be much fairer to all involved....492nd ranked
The idea is that MLB itself already has a 5-team playoffs system for both AL and NL since 2012. First round is #4 vs #5.
Meanwhile #1 #2 and #3 all get the week off.
Then the second round is #1 vs 4/5 winner, while #2 faces #3.
Then the third round is the championship between the two winners of second round.
-This helps because several leagues have 10 teams, and always debate whether 4 or 6 team playoffs is better (some say 4 is too few, and 6 is too many). 5 team playoffs is a compromise.107th ranked
We have a playoff rule that freezes add drops unless there is an injury. Arietta is injured, get him to show DTD status so I can make a move492nd ranked
Eliminate Consolation Round. If you miss the playoffs you should be eliminated from making moves and stealing players from real winners.
Eliminate Consolation Round. If you miss the playoffs you should be eliminated from making moves and stealing players from real winners. Some managers can help other managers by taking a player that can benefit their friend in the playoffs and hurt the integrity of the game. And quite honestly, after playing a full season and not making the Playoffs, why would I or should I keep playing? It doesn't make sense.92nd ranked
