    Cosolation Bracket??

    Consolation Bracket only happens if the (main) Playoff Bracket has 4 or 6 teams ...

    Does your (main) Playoff Bracket have 8 teams? If so, then there will be no Consolation Bracket

    • Thanks for telling me this before now, Yahoo. Where is this in the settings? You just have to play the season out and see?

      • The info was always there. Do some damn research next time!
        Here... I did it for you. Amazing how helpful the search topics are!

        There are seven playoff options for custom leagues, which determine:

        Which week the playoff is held
        How many teams participate
        Whether there is a consolation round

        Resolution

        In a custom league, the commissioner can select one of the following playoff formats:

        None: The team with the best overall record at the end of the regular season is the league champion.
        Week 15 & 16 (4 teams & 4 in consolation): At the end of Week 14, the top four teams in the league qualify for a two-week postseason tournament to determine the league champion. The next four teams (or two, if the league is only six teams) qualify for a consolation bracket to determine fifth through eighth place. Any remaining teams do not play games during this time.
        Week 16 & 17 (4 teams & 4 in consolation): At the end of Week 15, the top four teams in the league qualify for a two-week postseason tournament to determine the league champion. The next four teams (or two, if the league is only six teams) qualify for a consolation bracket to determine fifth through eighth place. Any remaining teams do not play games during this time.
        Week 14, 15, & 16 (6 teams & 6 in consolation): At the end of Week 13, the top six teams in the league qualify for a three-week postseason tournament to determine the league champion. The next six teams (or all remaining teams, if league has fewer than 12 teams) qualify for a consolation bracket to determine seventh through twelfth place. Any remaining teams do not play games during this time.

Any remaining teams do not play games during this time.
        Week 14, 15, & 16 (8 teams & no consolation): At the end of Week 13, the top eight teams in the league qualify for a three-week postseason tournament to determine the league champion. No other teams play games during this time.

        Note: Any teams that do not have an active matchup during a playoff week will still have scoring displayed on their team page.
