  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. Default playoffs for public and Pro leagues should be weeks 22,23 and 24

    Congrats on all the new playoff options in baseball.

    But.....

    Why you left the default for public and Pro leagues to run thru the last week of the regular season is beyond me.

    The regular season should be 21 weeks, not 22. Playoffs should start in week 22, not in week 23.

    Basketball, hockey and football all default to the next to last week of the regular season for the fantasy championship week. Why you insist on keeping baseball as the only sport that has the championship match up during the final week of the regular season is beyond me.

  4. Allow the commissioners in cash leagues the ability to disable consolation brackets

    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!…

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. PLAYOFF DATES AND OPTIONS

    It would be great to have numerous options for playoffs, Including moving up the playoffs earlier and extending them extra weeks as desired just as others have stated
    AND
    How about an option for multiple week total points where all of the teams involved in the Playoffs compete against each other for two or three weeks and whoever has the most points at the end is the champion. Basically a 2-4 week roto for the championship.

  9. 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.

  10. 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)

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  17. 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…

  19. 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!

  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…
