The final spot for the playoffs is not decided by record, but is determined by the highest point season total for the remaining teams
steven manzo commented
teams that are eliminated from prize leagues should not be able to still draft players during the playoffs
Luke Conyers commented
Bottom teams that are eliminated during the playoff weeks need to be able to play each other. Example. 10 team league, Teams 9 and 10 play each other last 2 weeks during playoffs

Another season and yahoo fantasy sports fail to honor league settings in prize leagues. When leagues have lock eliminated teams enabled in prize leagues. Teams that doesn't make the playoffs should automatically be locked from adding and dropping players. That is the whole idea with locking eliminated teams in custom prize leagues. There is no consolation prizes in custom prize leagues. Commissioners of leagues should not have to contact yahoo to lock eliminated teams when commissioners enabled that settings. It makes no sense not honor that setting. Having commissioners contact yahoo is a waste of time because of poor customer service. These leagues are not able to get eliminated teams lock in time before the wavier wire day which is Wednesday. This is completely unfair and the fact that after years and years of yahoo knowing commissioners will fill up the chat line to lock custom leagues and do nothing to make this a better experience is disappointing.
Yahoo please automatically honor commissioners league setting "LOCK ELIMINATED TEAMS" when setting is enabled.

Additionally, adding more options than just the typical 4,6, and 8. I.E. 7, 10, 12, etc..

Expand the current playoff teams from 4-8 to 12 or 14. Essentially, seeds 1-4 would have byes and seeds 5-12 would face each other in round 1 (Week 13). Losers of round 1 would end up in the last place bracket. The playoff schedule for 12 teams would be Week 13 thru Week 16.
Understandably, not every league will want to do this but this should be at least an option for those leagues that are looking to expand their playoffs. I believe this is an option in other fantasy football applications.
Expand total amount of teams that can make the playoffs.
Example: 12 or 16 teams over four weeks (weeks 13-16).
Nice option for big leagues.
ESPN already does this.
