Fantasy Playoffs

It’s that time of year again.  The regular season is winding down for most fantasy football leagues, and the playoff picture is starting to come into view, with probably half of the teams in the league still “on the bubble” and needing a crucial victory here in the next week or two.

Sample Playoff Bracket

You can start preparing for your playoffs now by setting up your playoff bracket(s) for your league.  Use the “For Commissioners > Setup > Playoff Setup” section to create a bracket for your league.  Start with the “Packaged Playoff Bracket” or the “General Playoff Setup” section depending on your needs.  As long as you know how many fantasy teams will make it to your playoffs, and how many weeks you want the playoffs to last, the system can create a bracket for you in no time, such as the example pictured here.  There are a lot of options and you can set up multiple brackets if you want, but most leagues will only need one championship bracket (even with multiple divisions/conferences) and some will also include a loser bracket and/or a third place bracket.

Then after the bracket(s) are created, you can use the “Seed Playoff Teams” screen to place the appropriate teams into the bracket(s) based on your league’s rules.  After that, you’ll be good to go. You can even add the bracket to your league home page as a home page module for quick and easy reference.  As always, if you have any questions or problems setting up the playoffs or any part of your league, you can use the “Help > Help Center” to get quick answers to common questions about the topic, or to submit a question to our support team.

On a related note, we also offer free NFL Playoff Leagues.  These are separate from your League’s Fantasy Playoffs, and allow you to run a completely separate league after the NFL regular season is over.  You can also continue your fantasy league into the NFL postseason if you want for that matter.  Watch for more news and an announcement about our NFL Playoff leagues early in December.
