Playoffs - Customizable consolation brackets
Requests for improved consolation bracket functionality and customization.

Our keeper/dynasty league wants to use a consolation bracket to determine off-season bonus FAAB allotments. For some very odd reason, when playing with 16 teams, the system will not allow an eight team consolation bracket for the teams that missed the playoffs. Can we please have the option to do this?

Totally agree. Consolation bracket makes zero sense.

The option to lock eliminated teams in the playoffs doesn't work in cash leagues. It is pointless to give the commissioners of cash leagues the option to lock eliminated teams if it doesn't work. Please honor cash league commissioners request to lock eliminated teams from the playoffs.
Eliminated players participating in the consolation bracket should not be able to make waiver claims or add/drop players. The ONLY players who should be allowed to make waiver claims or add/drop players are the players who are still in contention to win the championship. That is, after all, WHY WE PLAY THE GAME! When a player is eliminated, then makes waiver claims or add/drop players ... it's at best, poor sportsmanship and at worst it's cheating and possible collusion.
Please give us the option to turn the consolation bracket off!
This will make the "lock eliminated teams" feature more effective (right now it's basically useless because it lets managers in the consolation playoffs continue to make waiver moves, which is not what most commissioners intend when they use this feature)
