## Tie

I don't play Divisions, and this doesn't make a dam bit of sense to me lol but here it is:

Description

This article explains how playoff ties are broken in Yahoo! Fantasy Sports.

Resolution

In the event that a Fantasy playoff game ends in a tie, the deadlock is broken using the following system:

Winning percentage against this opponent during the regular season
Playoff seed
How is winning percentage determined?

The winning percentage is based on individual stat category wins and losses, and not matchup wins and losses. (A tie is worth a half win or 0.5, and a half loss or 0.5)

Example: Team A and Team B played each other three times during the regular season.

- In Matchup 1, Team A won 9-3-1.
- In Matchup 2, Team B won 6-4-3.
- In Matchup 3, Team A won 7-5-1.

Team A had 20 stat category wins vs. Team #\$%\$ 14 stat category wins during the regular season, with 5 ties.

Team A's winning percentage would be .577 (20 wins + 2.5 for ties = 22.5 / 39 total).
