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.

Please Yahoo! while you're making revisions for the 2020 season BRING BACK THE 2-WEEK OPTION FOR PLAYOFF MATCH-UPS!
Please make this an option, for all sports!
2 week Championship week should be standard. Just end the regular season a week earlier and start playoffs. This would significantly improve H2H. End another week earlier to make Semi finals 2 weeks too. Simple.
Bryan Rost commented
2-week championship rounds used to be available up until about 4 or 5 years ago on Yahoo. Why would you remove that capability?

I have been barking up this tree for years now. I am glad to see someone's post about it finally got to the "Gathering Feedback" stage. Please implement this!

Amen to this idea!! 2 week fantasy playoffs should be a must to get a real champion, not a lucky week winner.
Furthermore, fantasy playoffs should not include the final week of the regular season. Most of the players that got you to the fantasy championship are on MLB playoff teams. As such they are often resting that final week.

yes! my league is considering moving to ESPN where they have this features. yahoo used to have it as recently as 2012, not sure why they ever got rid of it.

this has to happen. it can't be that hard of a fix, and would be a huge solution for us.

This is absolutely needed. In the playoffs (especially for leagues who are playing for quite a large sum of money) it doesn't make any sense for one week playoff games. It gives a major advantage to whichever team has their SP aces starting twice. This balances out during the regular season, but to get bumped out of the playoffs b/c Bumgarner and Syndergaard are one start pitchers and you're going against an opponent who has Scherzer and Sale on two-start weeks... how does that make any sense? I have already begun discussing w/ my co-commissioner finding an alternative platform that would allow this even though we have always used Yahoo and would really prefer not to switch.

I would love the ability to have the playoffs be 2 weeks each while the regular season is 1 week each.
