  1. Fantasy Football Playoff FORMAT CUSTOMIZATION

    Need the ability to be able to customize the playoff FORMAT beyond the number of teams and reseeding. I.E. The ability to have multi-week playoff matchups (semis head-to-head matchup for both week 13 and 14 then championship is weeks 15 and 16) or even the ability in a 6 team playoff structure for the top 4 high scores for the first week advance to the semis then the top 2 scores in the semis advance to the championship. Really any additional customization ability in the playoffs would be GREAT. Thanks.

  2. Add options for Fantasy Playoffs

    Specifically in leagues with divisions, allow the option to have each division have its own seeds. This will allow leagues to mimic the real NFL and how the NFL has its conference champions face each other in the SuperBowl. Please see below and I will explain in detail how this would work.

    2 Divisions in a 12 team league:
    -Each division (6 teams) has the top 3 teams make the playoffs
    -The top 3 teams in both division are assigned numbers 1 thru 3 seeds
    -The 4, 5, and 6 seeds for both divisions make up the consolation bracket.
    -In…

  3. Allow edit to # of teams making playoffs by the commissioner.

    With a league of 14 teams, I want to have 7 teams make the playoffs w the reg season champ being awarded a bye. Why doesn't Yahoo allow this? It's either 6 or 8 teams.

  4. Make the consolation bracket optional!

    I run a 10 team league with a 4 team playoff. We would like to turn off the consolation bracket due to there not being any value playing for 5th place. Most teams don't try these weeks and since we draft in the opposite order of how we finish teams usually try to lose to improve there draft position for the next year. Just give us the option to turn it off, other leagues my want to keep it. What's so difficult about this???

    IF YOU ARE OUT OF THE PLAYOFFS YOU SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PICK UP PLAYERS, IT IS NOT FAIR TO THE TEAMS THAT ARE PLAYING FOR MONEY

  6. 8 team Playoff with Consolation Bracket

    I run a 12 team league with an 8 team playoff however for the 4 unlucky members there season ends after week 12. I think it would be a good idea to have the option for a 4 team consolation bracket extending their seasons two more weeks so they are still engaged for the rest of the season.

  7. Adding the Option for 2 Wins Per Week

    Can you please add a Fantasy Football setting for leagues to allow multiple wins per week: 1 win for winning your head-to-head matchup and 1 win for finishing in the top half of the league in scoring.

    Therefore, each week, every manager can go 0-2, 1-1 or 2-0.

  8. Allow commissioners to edit entire playoff brackets, winners and consolation brackets

    This suggestion is mostly for consolation brackets. Right now, in a 12 team league with top 6 seeds making the winners bracket, seeds 7 and 8 get byes in the first round of the consolation bracket. They are then set up to face the winners of the 9/12 and 10/11 matchups.

    This essentially eliminates seeds 7 and 8 from losing the consolation bracket and coming in dead last. In leagues where the person in last place has a "punishment" for losing it basically makes it so that two teams check

  9. Manual Playoff Seeding for Each Round

    Our league is considering a rule change to do manual seeding of the playoffs this year for each round as we want to allow the highest seed in each round to pick their opponents of that specific round.

    1) 3 Seed picks between 4-6 for first round
    2) 1 Seed picks between the two winners of the first round

  10. The comissioners should be able to customize every round of the playoffs.

    Commissioners should be able to adjust every round of the playoffs. We have the eliminated teams play for draft positions. We also have divisions throughout, not seeding teams based on points.

  11. Expand playoff participants

    In 14 team leagues, allow all teams not in the winners bracket to participate in the consolation bracket. 6 & 8 instead of 6, 6, and 2 automatically out

  12. Consolation Bracket Edits

    Currently my league has 14 teams and 6 of them make the playoffs. However because of that the consolation bracket also only has 6 teams, forcing two teams to sit out.

  13. Allow playoff matchups to be edited after the playoffs begin.

    I'd like to be able to manually change matchups during the fantasy playoffs. This would allow me to have a consolation tournament take place for the Bottom 4 teams, and would include losers from Round 1 of the playoffs.

  14. 2 week finals for week 16 and week 17

    Please allow leagues to have the option of having a 2 wk final (wk16 and wk17). Preferably a scenario in which it is a 12 team league with 6 playoff teams, top 2 get a bye and playoffs starting in wk 14. For our league, we would prefer a wk16 and wk17 finals because we believe it brings relevance to week 17. By forcing the championship general managers to scramble for players to fill their roster that have players resting on week 17 in preparation for real time playoffs, this may represent aspects of skilled general manager maneuverings in less…

  16. Commisioner power!

    You need to give the commissioner a lot more power! I can't stand how the entire consolation bracket has a bye in week 14. I'd rather have them start in 14 and be finished after week 15. Also you need way more options for tie breakers. Division record should not matter more than high score overall. Also high score should not matter more than head to head match up if it's in different divisions. The way yahoo does this is so messed up. Also I've been saying this for years. You need fractional points for field goals! Come on YAHOO.

  17. Consolation Bracket

    In our (12 team) league, we punish the last place team. Besides that, positions 7-11 don't really matter. Can we get the option to make the consolation bracket (or losers bracket) determine the last place team? Something that would make the losers advance? The champion and the loser will be determined the same week.

  18. Cut the consolation bracket out of Pro Leagues. All teams that don't make the playoffs should be locked so they don't ruin the playoffs.

    Cut the consolation bracket out of Pro Leagues. All teams that don't make the playoffs should be locked so they don't ruin the playoffs. Every year the same thing happens. Some idiot that didn't make the playoffs decides to drop all the droppable players from his roster. Not playing on this site until that gets fixed.

  19. Can I have the top four seeds at the end of the season have a two week playoff system based on scoring vs head to head?

    In our league we would like to keep head to head during the regular season but make it a two week playoff based on points alone. This will eliminate a team being penalized for having a bad fist round of the payoffs. Also eliminating a scenario where one team makes it to the Super Bowl winning 80-72 vs the other game finishing 156-142. Its not fair that a team who scores 142 gets eliminated and a team that scores 82 advances to the Super Bowl. Can this be done now with the Reseeding Option or do you have to go…

  20. Consolation Playoffs for leagues with 8 team playoffs.

    I can only set the commish tools to allow for a consolation round if the playoffs are set for 6 players? This is the league's first year on yahoo and this is throwing our members into fits as this has impact on how we set our next year's draft order. Is there any way to have this added in? On a semi-urgent basis (insert concerned looking commish emoji here)
