Yahoo gives you control with fantasy playoff custom seeding.

Fantasy Basketball players have been asking for custom playoff features and we heard you loud and clear. Just in time for Fantasy Basketball’s second season, commissioners on Yahoo Fantasy now have the ability to edit seeds for the first round of the postseason

This will help leagues that want to implement custom tiebreakers such as setting up a divisional playoff bracket or basing playoff berth on total points instead of by record.

Now this part is important, this feature will be locked until one week before the first game of your league’s playoffs and will lock again once the first game of your league’s playoffs begins. Make sure to make all edits before the first playoff game. Please note that changes made with this tool will override any changes in league standings afterwards, so its important to make them at the appropriate time. Once they lock at the start of the playoffs, they cannot be changed.

Where to go: This tool will appear under the commish tools as “Edit Playoff Seeds” under the “Schedules & Playoffs” area, in both the web version and the app. You can also find it by searching “Edit Playoff Seeds”. Once there, you can edit your league’s playoff seeding for the first round.

How to use it: The tool itself is self-explanatory, so give it a go. Just remember to save when you’re done shuffling your managers around. This feature is available for all private leagues.

Please let us know if you have any questions in our community area. This feature is new for us too, but we’ll help you get that optimal playoff bracket.

For those of you thinking, is this same amazing enhancement coming for Fantasy Baseball? Yes! Yes, it will be!

With some of you still fighting to make the playoffs, we want to help there, too. Whether it’s waiver wire tips, players you should drop or the latest transaction trends, lean on Yahoo Fantasy to get a win.
