Improve options for consolation
Most leagues like to have some kind of consolation bracket or competition for those who don't make the playoffs. The 6-team bracket is limited to only the leagues that fit that size.
You should be able to choose the option of having a consolation bracket with 4-8 teams (3 weeks max). Currently, unless you have 6 teams in the bracket, Yahoo doesn't even track these consolation scores anywhere besides the specific teams page. I had to create a scoring chart offline to keep them involved.
Additionally, you could offer an "all play" option for the consolation as well, where those teams compete for the best 3-week score.
There is a 4 team consolation bracket if you pick the 4 team option. It runs for 2 weeks.
The 8 team option, the losers in round 1 create the 4 team consolation bracket.
It is true that the only way to get positions 9 and down into the playoffs is to select the 6 team option which allows 12 total teams into the playoffs.
