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)

We moved from 12 to 14 teams this year and with it moved from 6 to 8 teams in the playoffs. It is completely incomprehensible that that would mean our consolation league no longer exists. If you want to make it optional, make it optional and a commissioner setting. It's just incredible that it isn't configurable. We will take our league to ESPN next year if this isn't fixed.

How is a Consolation bracket with 16 teams not a feature?? Such an oversight, it should have been there from the beginning. This is my 3rd year with Yahoo Fantasy, and the first two years we have Consolation brackets with our 12 team leagues, 6 in Championship, 6 in Consolation (6x6). You must update your software for 8x8 for 16 team leagues, immediately. It should have already been there. - TJ
There has never been a consolation bracket for the 8 team option. You may be thinking of the 6x6 format.

Agreed! This is a joke. Needs to be added!!!!
Unfortunately no. The bracket formats have been available for the commish and all members of the league all season for review.

I have been using Yahoo for my league for years - this is the FIRST year they removed the consolation bracket when 8 teams make the playoffs.
Terrible decisions - my league is a keeper league. We use the consolation bracket to determine draft order - if you win the consolation, you win 1st overall pick. Helps keep the league competitive throughout the year and prevent tanking from managers that do not have a chance to make playoffs.
