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.

We have an extra week of NFL football, give us the option to have the semi finals in week 15 and the finals be the total combined points from weeks 16 and 17
Tim Anderson commented
For a 12 team league, wish to have 4 teams in each bracket - Championship, Consolation & Toilet Bowl. Also allow for playoff rounds to be cumulative score over two weeks - e.g. Weeks 13+14, and Weeks 15+16

For playoffs, there should be an option for them to be 2-weeks long. This would ensure a game wasn't just a one-time fluke Kamara win. ESPN has this option and it works very well.

Agree 100% I have 4 leagues on ESPN right now. I would bring all 4 of them to Yahoo if they offered 2 week playoff rounds. This is a deal breaker by not adding it.
Chris Jones commented
I've wanted to switch to Yahoo from ESPN for 5 years now, but you don't have the option of making your playoff matchups last 2 weeks. This almost guarantees the better team always wins. You would have so many more people choose Yahoo over ESPN if you changed this!

I agree this needs to be an option.
Many years I've had the best regular season team, but finished 3rd because I had a "bad" week 15.

4 week playoff. 4 teams. 1 plays 4 and 2 plays 3. Highest cumulative score from the semi finals moves onto the super bowl. The Super Bowl is two weeks and the highest cumulative score wins
Joe Linderman commented
I agree it should at least be offered as an option for the championship game weeks 16 and 17. As i believe it give a better representation of the better team. NOT having this option is the reason I will probably bring my league to another fantasy site

Allow for each round of the playoffs to be 2 weeks long. We have a 12 week regular season, with 4 teams making the playoffs. #1 vs #4 and #2 vs #3 seed plays in week 13 and 14, with the combined score determining the winners. The winners move on to the championship game in Weeks 15-16 and the combined score for those 2 weeks determines the champ.
ESPN and NFL.com both allow for this. Please add multi-week playoff rounds.

We would like to bring our league to yahoo, but need this playoff setup as an option. Each playoff round lasting 2 weeks and you add each teams points up to determine the winner.
We use Weeks 13-14 for the semi-finals and Weeks 15-16 for the finals. It really adds to the drama as each round lasts longer and give a better chance for the best team to advance.
Can something please be done about this? This is a basic feature that we have been waiting for for years now.

Yeah I 2nd that, I was going to post a comment similar to this. However I only want it for the finals. However there should be an option to so the same for the semi-finals if that's what you want.
How I want to do it is week 15 semi finals, week 16/17 part 1 and part 2 of the finals. What do you think about that??
