  1. No waiver bids allowed in consolation bracket. Players worth waivers should be reserved for teams playing for a prize.

    Lock non championship bracket teams from waiver claims during playoffs at least in cash leagues.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  5. 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!…

  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. 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.

  8. 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)

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.
