  1. WHY?? NO MORE CONSOLATION BRACKET: 16-TEAM LEAGUE

    My 16-team keeper league just got screwed by a poor decision made by Yahoo Fantasy football staff.

    For the past 5+ years, my league has had 8 teams make the playoff bracket and 8 teams slotted into a consolation bracket. To fight against late season tanking and to keep every week competitive....for the teams that will not make the playoffs, the consolation bracket was used to determine draft order for the following year.

    Example: if you win the consolation bracket, you win the first overall draft pick the following year. If you lose in the consolation final, you get 2nd…

  2. Provide clinching scenarios for teams in the hunt for playoff spots

    I'm trying to rally for a playoff spot in my league, it would be awesome if yahoo did the math for me to see who has to win/lose and how that impacts others.

  3. 6 team playoff (includes a consolation bracket)

    To be consistent with the default playoff scheme, which Baseball, Basketball, and Hockey uses, Football should use the following, instead of the 4 team playoff (includes a consolation bracket):

    The top 6 teams in the league standings after the last week of the Fantasy regular season qualify for a 3-week postseason tournament to determine a league champion.

    The next 6 teams in the standings qualify for a consolation bracket to determine 7th through 12th place. The season is over for everyone else.

    Teams - 6 championship, 6 consolation
    Playoff Weeks - 2 options:
    Weeks 14, 15, and 16
    Weeks 15,…

  4. Week 17 Pro Bowl

    Give a league option to have a pro bowl on week 17. After the champion is crowned in week 16, you have a league wide game to see who scores the most points in week 17. High score wins the pro bowl.

  5. 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…

  6. Two-week Championship

    Was looking for fantasy hockey engineering forum but alas.
    Can we please adjust our playoff settings to create a two-week championship round (combining weeks 23 and 24)?
    There is no option to do this despite popular support. Why?

  8. H2H Regular Season, Points playoffs

    H2H is way more fun for regular season, but I would like to make playoffs points-based. Instead of H2H matchups, the teams in the quarters and semis face everyone and the top scoring half of teams move on to the following round (4 move on from quarterfinals and 2 move on from semifinals). Simple feature to add, and it's more fair.

  9. 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

  10. Playoff time!

    When it comes time for playoffs, you should dress the site a lot more for the contenders. Give it an intense, more exicting look. Add some art, regular season h2h match up summaries, etc. to the Match Up page. More graphics or something on the League page as well.

    IT'S THE F'N PLAYOFFS!!

    I'd love to work for yahoo fantasy if you take this idea.

    Thanks.

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. Can Playoffs become available from week 12?

    Our workplace breaks for the holidays after week 13 of the NFL season. Under current playoffs schedule, the winner is determined on Christmas Day (in Australia) and no one cares.

    I'd love to be able to start playoffs in week 12 and conclude them in week 13. ESPN allows this, but would prefer the yahoo platform for our work league

  14. Playoff formats

    Please make playoff formats totally customizable.
    As it is now in our 12 team league we run a 2 tier top 8 & 4bottom playoff in weeks 14-15-16; but have to tell the yahoo website "no playoffs" to fool the system and reset the pairings & waivers each 3 weeks, and send out our own email grid of where we are to each owner. At least make the standings rewritable each week like the game pairings and waivers are now

  15. Custom Playoffs

    If playing with divisions and bye weeks, should be able to have the first round split by division with the top division winners getting the bye. This way rounds 1 & 2 you are playing for your division Title and then you Play the Other Division for the Overall Championship.
    Don't just make the Division Winners Top seeded and then everyone else by record.

    This will make more like NFL.

  16. Offer a fully customizable post season league for weeks 18 through 21

    Offer a fully customizable post season league for weeks 18 through 21. The league I've been hosting on a different site is a points only league consisting of 8 roster spots and no salary cap. Any participant can choose any player they prefer multiple times through weeks 18 through 21. The participant with the most points at the end wins.

  17. 8 Team Consolation

    I run a 14 team league, and I would love to have the option for a 6 team Playoff Bracket and an EIGHT team Consolation Bracket. Yahoo! currently only offers a 6 team Playoff Bracket and a 6 team Consolation Bracket.

    Week 15 and 16 would be a 2 week championship. 4 teams make it in a 10 team league. Need more flexibility scheduling the playoffs.

  20. Mixed Playoff Format Option (single elim + 2 wk final)

    I'd like to have the option to start the playoffs with single elimination then have a 2 week final. Unlike some, I wouldn't want the finals to last through week 17, that's dumb. I'd want the finals to last through week's 15 & 16. The playoffs would obviously have to begin a week sooner. If 4 teams qualify, the playoffs begin in week 14. The max playoff allotment would be 6 teams with #1's getting a first rd bye and the playoffs beginning in wk 13. It's something different...
