Commissioner Corner Message Board
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
How is winning percentage determined?
Head-to-Head Standard leagues
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 had 50 stat category wins VS. Team #$%$ 30 stat category wins during the regular season. 50 wins / 80 total stat categories equals a .625 win percentage.
Head-to-Head One-Win and Head-to-Head Points leagues
The tiebreaker is the matchup win percentage against this opponent during the regular season. (Not stat category wins)
Example: Team C beat Team D, 3 out of 4 times during the regular season for a .750 win percentage.
It goes to the team with the better h2h record against the opponent, and if that is tied, then the seeding is used to break the tie.
So, if Team A plays Team B and they tied 5-5 in the playoffs, then it looks at which team did better against the other. If Team A beat B 11-9 in 2 combined regular season games, then Team A wins. This makes regular season matchups all the more important!
