  1. Consolation Bracket Edits

    Currently my league has 14 teams and 6 of them make the playoffs. However because of that the consolation bracket also only has 6 teams, forcing two teams to sit out.

  2. Consolation Bracket

    In our (12 team) league, we punish the last place team. Besides that, positions 7-11 don't really matter. Can we get the option to make the consolation bracket (or losers bracket) determine the last place team? Something that would make the losers advance? The champion and the loser will be determined the same week.

  3. Cut the consolation bracket out of Pro Leagues. All teams that don't make the playoffs should be locked so they don't ruin the playoffs.

    Cut the consolation bracket out of Pro Leagues. All teams that don't make the playoffs should be locked so they don't ruin the playoffs. Every year the same thing happens. Some idiot that didn't make the playoffs decides to drop all the droppable players from his roster. Not playing on this site until that gets fixed.

  4. 2 week finals for week 16 and week 17

    Please allow leagues to have the option of having a 2 wk final (wk16 and wk17). Preferably a scenario in which it is a 12 team league with 6 playoff teams, top 2 get a bye and playoffs starting in wk 14. For our league, we would prefer a wk16 and wk17 finals because we believe it brings relevance to week 17. By forcing the championship general managers to scramble for players to fill their roster that have players resting on week 17 in preparation for real time playoffs, this may represent aspects of skilled general manager maneuverings in less…

  5. 3 team playoff option

    Can you please add a playoff option where 3 teams make the playoffs with the 1st seed getting a bye in week 15 and the 2nd and 3rd seeds playing each other in week 15 for the right to play the 1st seed in week 16?

    This would be good for leagues that want to have some playoffs, but want to limit the number of teams in the playoffs as well as give a reward to the regular season champion

  6. Remove first week bye?

    Is it possible to remove the first week bye option? I have a 10 team league and would like the 1 seed playing the 6 and so on. Not sure if it’s already an option but I didn’t see anything.

  7. Consolation Playoffs for leagues with 8 team playoffs.

    I can only set the commish tools to allow for a consolation round if the playoffs are set for 6 players? This is the league's first year on yahoo and this is throwing our members into fits as this has impact on how we set our next year's draft order. Is there any way to have this added in? On a semi-urgent basis (insert concerned looking commish emoji here)

  8. 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:


    1. 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)


    2. It will prevent meaningless consolation games from determining the final standings…

  9. Allow commissioner customization EVERY week of playoffs

    I have Toilet Bowl brackets for both leagues I'm in. The loser advances each week instead of the winner. Loser of the final game "wins" the toilet bowl trophy. Yahoo only allows the winner to advance, so the managers are required to email me their rosters. I'm glad I can customize the 1st week now, but why can't Yahoo allow customization during the entire playoffs so I can edit who advances each week.

  11. 2-week Playoff Matches

    For all playoff matches, there should be an option for them to be 2-weeks long. This would ensure a game wasn't just a one-time win. ESPN has this option and it works very well.

  12. Create the option to allow two-week playoff matchups

    ESPN (among many other sites) offers an option where playoff matchups can last two weeks instead of 1, and the cumulative score after both weeks determines the winner.

  13. Two-week Championship

    Was looking for fantasy hockey engineering forum but alas.
    Can we please adjust our playoff settings to create a two-week championship round (combining weeks 23 and 24)?
    There is no option to do this despite popular support. Why?

  14. Expand amount of teams in the playoffs

    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.

  15. WHY?? NO MORE CONSOLATION BRACKET: 16-TEAM LEAGUE

    My 16-team keeper league just got screwed by a poor decision made by Yahoo Fantasy football staff.

    For the past 5+ years, my league has had 8 teams make the playoff bracket and 8 teams slotted into a consolation bracket. To fight against late season tanking and to keep every week competitive....for the teams that will not make the playoffs, the consolation bracket was used to determine draft order for the following year.

    Example: if you win the consolation bracket, you win the first overall draft pick the following year. If you lose in the consolation final, you get 2nd…

  16. Playoff Free for All

    We'd like to add a feature where leagues can elect that playoffs teams all go against each other and top top half of points scorers advance each week. So it would look like this in a 12 team format:

    Regular Season: head- to- head matchups: the 8 Best head to head records make the playoffs

    Week 14: top 4 Point scoring teams of the 8 playoffs teams that week advance to week 15
    Week 15: top 2 scoring teams advance to the championship
    Week 16: traditional head-to- head championship matchup

    There would be constant lead changes to advance and it…

  17. 7 Teams making the playoffs option in 14 team league (50% of the league) 1st place gets bye week 14.

    We play in a 14 team league and would like the option for 7 teams to make the playoffs. It would function exactly like an 8 team playoff format, except the 1st place team after regular season gets a bye in week 14. It is simple, easy to put in place, and allows a 14 team league to simulate a 12 team league where 50% make the playoffs.

  18. Playoff formats

    Please make playoff formats totally customizable.
    As it is now in our 12 team league we run a 2 tier top 8 & 4bottom playoff in weeks 14-15-16; but have to tell the yahoo website "no playoffs" to fool the system and reset the pairings & waivers each 3 weeks, and send out our own email grid of where we are to each owner. At least make the standings rewritable each week like the game pairings and waivers are now

  19. Commissioners need the ability to adjust playoff brackets based on our own tiebreakers

    We have 2 divisions of 5...Firemen vs Cops....Top seed each division gets bye. 2vs 3 in week 14 on each side....week 15 winner of 2vs 3 plays #1 seed. week 16 its 1 cop vs 1 fireman for the title and a 3rd place game. No way to set this up under Yahoo's settings. I wouldn';t think it would be that hard to allow commish control the change playoff settings
