Create the option to allow two-week playoff matchups
ESPN (among many other sites) offers an option where playoff matchups can last two weeks instead of 1, and the cumulative score after both weeks determines the winner.
Dan Speicher commented
With the extra week this year my league wants to keep playoffs the same except make the championship matchup be two weeks (weeks 16 and 17). Doesn’t seem to be possible at the moment which seems like a missed opportunity.

This update needs to happen

NFL has 17 games now through 18 weeks. Fantasy needs to adjust. I think a 6-team playoff plays:
Round 1- Week 14
Round 2- Week 15
Final- Weeks 16 & 17 (most total points in those two weeks wins)
This preserves the 13 week regular season records for long standing leagues and makes the finals all the more interesting.
Tim Anderson commented
Please provide the option to allow for two week cumulative score during the playoffs, like ESPN & NFL.com, among others, do. Could be Weeks 13-16 or Weeks 14-17.

At the bare minimum the consolation for a 10 team six playoff bracket league needs to be fixed. The four consolation teams not in the championship bracket should not all be on byes the first week of the playoffs. This is just dumb. They should play out their consolation bracket week 1 and 2 of the playoffs, and that third week of the fantasy playoffs should be reserved for those teams that earned it, the teams playing for third and fourth, and the championship.

YES!! I would switch to yahoo in an instant if they had this option. We use weeks 13-14 for the first round matchup and 15-16 for the championship game. Please add this!
Dave Moffaert commented
Agreed. Needs to be fixed ASAP
Alex Bernal commented
YES Please do this! AGREE 100%. The playoffs should be total points based. The cumulative scoring winner for the two playoff weeks combined should be the Champion.
Yahoo - please fix this. We have been waiting for this basic improvement for years.
Jordan Brace commented
Agreed! This is so important to have as an OPTION.
We play H2H for 20+ weeks and then top seeds are eliminated after one poor week in the playoffs. It needs to be longer!
It could very easily be programmed as an option!
Ivan Ortiz commented
Yes! 1000% agree. Just moved to Yahoo from ESPN this year and it's absolutely ridiculous that this isn't an option. You should also be able to have 5 teams out of 10 make the playoffs with a first round BYE to the top seed.
