Playoff tiebreaker rules
Refers to: Fantasy Baseball , Fantasy Basketball , Fantasy Hockey
This article explains how playoff ties are broken in Yahoo! Fantasy Sports.
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
This is the default league setting for all Public and Pro Leagues.
In leagues using this scoring format, 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 (9+4+7) vs. Team B's 14 stat category wins (3+6+5) 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).
