Playoffs - Customizable consolation bracket.
This feature will allow commissioners to do the following;
- Turn the consolation bracket on or off
- Change the number of teams the league has in the consolation bracket
- Customize the seeding and teams in the consolation bracket.
Currently, the consolation bracket is only available for 4 and 6 team playoff format, it is not able to be turned on and off, and does not allow for the commissioner to change the number of teams in the consolation bracket or customize the teams/seeding.

I'm adding my vote to having this implemented. It's been years and years and we've been asking for something that has long been possible on other fantasy football websites.
There's no reason why 6+ teams shouldn't be allowed to have a consolation playoffs.
Having consolation brackets can keep teams out of it more competitive and have a fairer overall league. It could be used for consolations prizes. It can help with draft order and keepers for the following year. There's just so many pros to this idea, I don't know why it hasn't been implemented already. DO IT!
PPR scoring is available for private leagues. There is no such thing as a PPR league on Yahoo!, but PPR scoring is available as an option to the commish.
I always run a PPR League, which sadly you do not have and would like to see this feature next year.
I am new to Yahoo FFL and was surprised you do not have the ability to test the scoring system.
there has to be a toilet bowl option added. it's the second most important game next to winners bowl game. we have a toilet bowl trophy that needs to be awarded and by record or total points seems like a poor way to do it. ADD THE TOILET BOWL!!!!
Give the loser bracket a chance to win the toilet bowl and earn money too in cash leagues. Like 1st $100, 2nd $40, 3rd $10, and toilet bowl champ $5. Make an option for them to win money too.
Who's going to be the toilet bowl champs this year? 2016 Toilet Bowl!
A toilet bowl is a great way for the losers to participate.
Ya, options would be great. At least an option for toilet bowl.
The playoff system needs a toilet bowl and it also needs to be more customizable. The Top 2 teams (seeds) get a bye. Then the 2 teams with the best overall record and then the 2 teams with most points scored. This is for a 12 team league with 6 playoff teams.
The toilet bowl is a great idea. I totally agree with this.
There is a feature request for the "Toilet Bowl" game which is along these lines.
it has more comments, so let's gather the momentum there.
Currently (Aug 2016) it's ranked 18th I believe.
Really need a playoff for the teams that did not make the original (winner) playoffs and in the fantasy world it is called the toilet bowl. Lets every team compete almost to the very end of the season. Fantasy diehards love the toilet bowl.

Toilet bowl is an awesome idea!!
The toilet bowl should be the 7th place winner in a 12 team league. Winner of the losers bracket. Never really did a last place game. seems interesting
last place teams deserve a chance to play yahoo!!
Ya, the toilet-bowl is cool. I have been a champ before lol. Almost won it back-to-back. But anyways, there really needs to be a toilet-bowl. The whole league would appreciate it.
Fantasy football is suppose to be fun. All 12 teams should be in some type of playoff format.

Take the bottom 6 in a 12-team league and let them have a playoff!
Playoffs for losers are always fun. They should play for $5 lol.
Yes, the teams aren't in playoffs should compete in the toilet bowl. Also, have a way to set a prize amount. Like for cash leagues. 1st $50, 2nd $20, 3rd $10, and toilet bowl champ $5! something like that.
