Let us disable the consolation bracket in fantasy playoffs
I know many people enjoy the consolation bracket in the playoffs, but no one in my league pays attention to these games or cares about them. All they do is mess things up. Please give us the option to turn the consolation bracket off!
There are two main benefits:
This will make the "lock eliminated teams" feature more effective (right now it's basically useless because it lets managers in the consolation playoffs continue to make waiver moves, which is not what most commissioners intend when they use this feature)
It will prevent meaningless consolation games from determining the final standings for leagues that base next year's draft order on those standings

Yes. allow commissioners to enable or disable consolation brackets. Or honor the feature that says lock eliminated teams.
Commissioners in cash leagues that want to lock eliminated teams should be honored by Yahoo.

We agree 100%. Absolutely no value in playing for 5th place, it just hurts your draft position for next year. The only way to get rid of it currently is by make 8 playoff teams in a 10 team league... which is also dumb.
