Fantasy Football Playoff FORMAT CUSTOMIZATION
Need the ability to be able to customize the playoff FORMAT beyond the number of teams and reseeding. I.E. The ability to have multi-week playoff matchups (semis head-to-head matchup for both week 13 and 14 then championship is weeks 15 and 16) or even the ability in a 6 team playoff structure for the top 4 high scores for the first week advance to the semis then the top 2 scores in the semis advance to the championship. Really any additional customization ability in the playoffs would be GREAT. Thanks.

We want to have a single week tournament for ALL teams in our league after the playoffs are done (week 18). The CBS fantasy football site allows it's members to do this and we would like Yahoo to do the same.

Agreed, with the extra week being added in 2021, the option to have a two-week championship using combined points would be great.

2 week playoffs are long overdue for playing in Yahoo FFL. Semis in weeks 13/14 and finals in weeks 15/16 would be ideal, hope we can get it for 2021.

Since the NFL has expanded to 7 teams making the playoffs, Yahoo should give leagues the same option of being able to choose 6, 7, or 8, etc. playoff teams rather than just 4, 6, 8

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.

I think the 4 letter network has it where the playoffs are 2 week matchups, I'd actually love for that to be an option here.

Great Idea.....Our league wants this format now or certainly by 2020.
Simple to implement. Have regular season run as Head-To-Head. Then playoffs run structured Roto-style. Commissioner designates number of teams eligible for playoffs week 14, 15, 16. We have a 12 team league. Playoffs eligibility for top 6 then 4, then 2 for championship seems perfect. Yahoo....Get 'er done....

100% agree with this - let me be able to have the 1st seed bye, and the remaining 5 teams fight for the top 3 spots in round 2.
Please create an option for the commissioner to personally customize their leagues playoff format. For my league, I want the option of implementing a 10 team playoff field for my 12 team league. I could designate Week 13 to be my "Wild Card" week and have 7th place vs 10th place and 8th place vs 9th place. Two Division winners are awarded the top two seeds along with having Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth place all bye to the Quarterfinals. Week 13 wild card winners advance to the Week 14 Quarterfinals having the 7th place vs 10th place winner advance to play the 2nd seed and 8th place vs 9th place winner advancing to play the 1st seed. 4th place plays 5th place and 3rd place plays 6th place. Week 15 is our Semi-Final round and Week 16 is the Championship. Its 2019. Yahoo! has to have the budget and programmers that could create more advanced playoff options for Yahoo! Fantasy Football.
