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.

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!

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.
