#$%$..that makes no sense..so just because a guy scores more points yet i beat him when we matched up twice..yahoo needs to revise that rule..a win is a win..weather a team wins by 1 or 191..its still a win..tie breaker needs to come down to individual match-up..
I thought it was HTH too but here is the info via Yahoo rules (go to Yahoo help, search 'tiebreakers') -
If two or more teams tie for the lead in a division, the following tiebreakers will be used to determine the division winner.
Division winning percentage.
Total fantasy points (season total).
Fantasy points scored in last week's matchup.
Fantasy points scored in the matchup two weeks prior.
The comparison continues until the tie is broken or no more weeks remain to compare. At that time, a coin flip will settle the tie.
If three or more teams tie for a division lead, once the division winner is determined, all other teams involved in the tie are then seeded using the wild-card tiebreaking criteria.
I'll bet you the third person has the head-to-head tiebreaker over you, that's why in a 3-way tie total points makes sense. In a two way tie, the first tiebreaker is not head-to-head, its division record, then total pts. Not certain about 3-way.

pretty sure baseball and hockey yahoo fantasy seasons ties comedown to match-up..
and like the real nfl it comes down to match-up not points..and if you beat a team by
1 or 191 its still a win..the win is not worth anymore or less.. its a win..yahoo creating this point system for ties is fundamentally flawed..
