  1. 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

  2. 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

  4. 6 team playoff (includes a consolation bracket)

    To be consistent with the default playoff scheme, which Baseball, Basketball, and Hockey uses, Football should use the following, instead of the 4 team playoff (includes a consolation bracket):

    The top 6 teams in the league standings after the last week of the Fantasy regular season qualify for a 3-week postseason tournament to determine a league champion.

    The next 6 teams in the standings qualify for a consolation bracket to determine 7th through 12th place. The season is over for everyone else.

    Teams - 6 championship, 6 consolation
    Playoff Weeks - 2 options:
    Weeks 14, 15, and 16
    Weeks 15,…

  5. Allow for two different leagues, upon concurrence,to face off in week 17.

    Please allow, with league commissioner concurrence, two different leagues play for a championship in week 17. I've got 20+ friends that want to play FF. If love to be able to have two different leagues (kind of like conferences) that watch each other's performance all year and then play for a week 17 championship. 20 teams in one league is just too many. Please help

  6. Offer a fully customizable post season league for weeks 18 through 21

    Offer a fully customizable post season league for weeks 18 through 21. The league I've been hosting on a different site is a points only league consisting of 8 roster spots and no salary cap. Any participant can choose any player they prefer multiple times through weeks 18 through 21. The participant with the most points at the end wins.

  7. Totally customizable playoff formats

    There absolutely needs to be the ability to create a totally customized playoff format. Our league went to 14 teams this year and it created several issues with playoffs, due to the limited options that yahoo allows. It shouldn't be very hard to allow commissioners total control for playoff brackets, allowing byes where an odd number of teams enter or continue in the playoffs. Other sites have these options and yahoo needs to keep up. I know we're not the only ones who are a bit salty about this. We want to come back next year, but you need to…

  8. 14 team league. 6 play for championship, bottom 4 play for a last place prize

    we have a 14 team league. our top six play for the championship and the rules are just fine for that format. our bottom 4 also play for a last place prize but yahoo doesnt support this.
    playing for a last place trophy is now much more common place but allowing the bottom 8 teams to be split into 2 separate brackets isnt supported by yahoo fantasy.
    either allowing us to choose the matches every week for all 3 playoff weeks or creating 2 separate consolation brackets would help solve this.

    ( week 14 11th plays 14th / 12th plays…

  9. Can I have the top four seeds at the end of the season have a two week playoff system based on scoring vs head to head?

    In our league we would like to keep head to head during the regular season but make it a two week playoff based on points alone. This will eliminate a team being penalized for having a bad fist round of the payoffs. Also eliminating a scenario where one team makes it to the Super Bowl winning 80-72 vs the other game finishing 156-142. Its not fair that a team who scores 142 gets eliminated and a team that scores 82 advances to the Super Bowl. Can this be done now with the Reseeding Option or do you have to go…

  10. Can Playoffs become available from week 12?

    Our workplace breaks for the holidays after week 13 of the NFL season. Under current playoffs schedule, the winner is determined on Christmas Day (in Australia) and no one cares.

    I'd love to be able to start playoffs in week 12 and conclude them in week 13. ESPN allows this, but would prefer the yahoo platform for our work league

  11. Season Length in Non-Playoff leagues - CHANGE TO END IN WEEK 16!

    Yahoo needs to allow leagues that do not use playoffs (just head to head or points only) to edit season length to week 16. There is no point for leagues to go to Week 17 when NFL teams are sitting starters. This seems simple considering leagues that use Playoffs end in week 15 or 16 anyways. Why would leagues that do not use playoffs not have the same ending week??

  12. Choose your playoff opponent

    Have the top ranked team choose their opponent each round. Will help with bad teams making the finals based on match up

  13. Mixed Playoff Format Option (single elim + 2 wk final)

    I'd like to have the option to start the playoffs with single elimination then have a 2 week final. Unlike some, I wouldn't want the finals to last through week 17, that's dumb. I'd want the finals to last through week's 15 & 16. The playoffs would obviously have to begin a week sooner. If 4 teams qualify, the playoffs begin in week 14. The max playoff allotment would be 6 teams with #1's getting a first rd bye and the playoffs beginning in wk 13. It's something different...

  14. Provide clinching scenarios for teams in the hunt for playoff spots

    I'm trying to rally for a playoff spot in my league, it would be awesome if yahoo did the math for me to see who has to win/lose and how that impacts others.

  15. New playoff option

    My buddy played in an ESPN league with this playoff setup and Id like yahoo to allow for this option as well.

    How I want to do it is week 15 the semi finals, week 16/17 part 1 and part 2 of the finals. What do you think about that?? Even if you don't like it shouldn't we at least have the option so people who do like it can choose it?

  16. All play record as a wild card and playoff spot tiebreaker criteria

    Enable "All Play Record" as a wild card determiner. You already track a teams 'all play record' and report it, at least on a single week basis. My league has voted that this is our preferred metric for establishing wild card births into the playoffs. At the moment, as commissioner, I track that independently and will use the alter playoff seeding manually if needed this year, but it would be terrific to have this automated and reported as part of the league standings.

  17. Playoff Tiebreakers and Post season setup

    Why do we have to go through leaps and bounds to set the playoffs for our league? I have three Suggestions
    1. head to head tiebreaker should be bench points. this clearly makes more sense I dont understand how this is not an option.
    2. Why is the consolation bracket locked so all teams have a bye, again let us decide our fantasy playoff brackets

  20. Reseeding

    What is the deal with reseeding? My 14 team league consisting of 2 divisions was set up to award byes to division winners, then reseed in the 2nd round of the playoffs. One of the division winners had the worst record of remaining teams in the 2nd round and should have reseeded to play the top team. However Yahoo did not reseed as it was told. What is up with this? Can Yahoo not understand why a 2 seed would then shift to a 4 seed?
