    • Regular season tiebreakers in Fantasy Baseball
      This article explains:

      tiebreaking criteria can not be changed
      tiebreakers used in the regular season
      tiebreakers used in the playoffs
      there are no tiebreakers in Rotisserie or Points Based leagues
      It is not possible to deviate from the tie-breaking methods set by Yahoo! Sports. Commissioners of Custom Leagues cannot implement their own tiebreakers.

      Regular Season tiebreakers
      Playoff tiebreakers
      Rotisserie and Points only leagues
      Regular Season tiebreakers

      Section A: Wild card

      If, at the end of the regular season, two or more teams in a Head-to-Head League finish tied in the standings (based on winning percentage) and are not tied for the lead in a division, the following system will be used to break the tie and determine playoff seeding:

      Fantasy points scored (if your league is a Head-to-Head Points league).
      Highest winning percentage in the last week of the season.
      Highest winning percentage in the second to last week of the season.
      The comparison continues until the tie is broken or no more weeks remain to compare.
      Section B: Division champion

      If, at the end of the season, two or more teams in a division finish atop the standings with the same overall record, the following system will be used to decide only the division winner:

      Division winning percentage.
      Fantasy points scored (if your league is a Head-to-Head Points league).
      Highest winning percentage in the last week of the season.
      Highest winning percentage in the second to last week of the season.
      The comparison continues until the tie is broken or no more weeks remain to compare.
      Note: If it is a three- or four-way tie for a division championship, once the division winner is determined, the remaining teams will be seeded using Section A of the regular-season tiebreakers. Division winning percentage will not be considered.

      Playoff seeds are based on your league's playoff seeding option, your league ranking and whether you're a divisional winner.
