  1. More flexible playoff sytems

    ideas include:
    - eliminate consolation bracket; once you are eliminated from playoffs, you are locked out just like those teams who miss playoffs and there are no meaningless "consolation" games that no one pays attention to
    - two week championship as an option
    - shorter regular season due to MLB teams shutting down pitchers, resting players, etc. in september. The championships should be wrapped up by time fantasy football rolls around (week one of the NFL should be championship week for fantasy baseball)

  2. It would be great if you allowed Commissioner's to set the playoff weeks much earlier.

    Most managers are ready to focus on Football during the month of September. I would love to be able to set the first playoff date sometime in early August.

  4. 2-week Playoff Matches

    For all playoff matches, there should be an option for them to be 2-weeks long. This would ensure a game wasn't just a one-time win. ESPN has this option and it works very well.

  5. 2 Week Playoff Matchups with Adjustable Schedule

    I would love to see Yahoo allow for 2 week playoff matchups and an adjustable schedule that allows you to end regular season whenever you want. These options are currently available on ESPN. After doing our fantasy baseball on Yahoo since 2006, we switched over to ESPN this season because our managers simply prefer 2 week playoff matchups and how it rewards a "true" winner.

    Especially in a sport like baseball that entails so much randomness, a 1 week matchup at any given time is almost a "crapshoot". Also, allowing for an adjustable schedule would also be a great feature…

  6. End fantasy baseball playoffs earlier

    Everyone in my league checks out as soon as football starts. Give the commish the option to end the playoffs some time in August. I'm guessing a lot of fantasy baseball people feel this way.

  7. There should be an option to make all playoff rounds two weeks long. That way, you get a real test of who the better team is in a long match

    Two week playoff rounds would truly separate the men from the boys. Better managers and well balanced teams would be less likely to lose because of a key injury/rest day or an outburst from one opposing player.

  8. You can't have championship week occur during the final week of the (real) regular season.

    Seriously. This is not real baseball. Please have championship week done before the final week of the regular season.

    Hey everyone, thank you for your feedback and another great season of fantasy baseball on Yahoo. Our product and engineering teams are investigating more flexible playoff start/end dates for next season. Stay tuned!

  9. 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.

  10. 5-team playoff system

    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.

  11. Allow commissioners to again re-seed the playoffs. We used to have this feature.

    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.

  12. I have left yahoo fantasy baseball for only one reason: Scheduling!

    All I want to do is have:
    2 divisions of 6 teams
    Regular season schedule through week 16 (so as to have a balanced schedule)
    Have 2 week playoff matchups starting week 17 and ending week 22

    Its stupid to play the last 2 weeks of september in fantasy baseball. Make this happen please!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Please allow for more flexible/customizable playoff brackets...

    Would really like to be able to adjust playoff bracket set up via commish tools. Also if 2 week playoff option isn't added for 2018 season, we might abandon ship and switch to CBS. The playoff bracket customization would be great though, so we can have an AL vs NL set up, and make sure that only the AL champion and NL champion meet in the "world series" final. Currently, there's no way to do this, division winners get in and then top seeds. Need to be able to set it up with various options. Example(2 divisions, top 4 from…

  14. End the season earlier

    Can you please let us finish the fantasy baseball season before September call ups? I'd like the playoffs to start and end in August.

  15. Ending Playoffs Early

    On ESPN fantasy baseball you can choose how many weeks you want to have the regular season last and how long the playoffs will last. This would give you the ability to end the Fantasy Baseball season before the first week in NFL Fantasy Football. Once football gets here no one in the personal leagues I've been in wants to check baseball team once the NFL kicks off week 1. Which is around Sept 14-16 but as of now you can only end the baseball season like 1 week early which is like sept 23.

  16. 2 week playoff final

    I would love to have the option of a 2 week final. I don't like the finals landing on the last week of the season because too many stud players are resting, but I also don't like ending the fantasy season before the regular season ends. A 2 week final is the perfect solution to this problem. It takes away the flukiness of the last week final and allows you to play through the end of the baseball regular season.

  17. Please let us edit out schedule length to our complete specification. Playoffs are a joke

    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.

  18. Fantasy Playoffs should start 3 weeks earlier (week 19)

    The League I commish is ID # 59808. I've commished it and other leagues for 10-12 years. In recent years, in order to off-set constant increasing player injuries in baseball and constantly doing player transactions, I have always used the maximum DL players allowed. However, given that the long 162 game season tends to lend itself more injuries as the season progresses, and that the nature of baseball has gotten more intense over the years, it seems obvious that injuries are becoming more a part of the game. Primarily for this reason, I believe there needs to be an option…

  19. begin & end playoffs earlier

    We need to be given the option of starting and ending the playoffs earler. With expanded rosters and teams clinching too many top players and esp pitchers are not playing at the most important time of the fantasy season

  20. Allow commisioners to set the playoffs during any weeks they want in all Fantasy Sports

    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…
