NFL Playoffs: New Round Waiver Time

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

With the NFL adding a Monday night playoff game, we are pushing back the waiver time for 'Per Round' leagues from Wednesdays at 8 AM eastern to 8 PM eastern.  This will allow for 12 more hours of decision making after the Monday game, and allow time to scout the Wednesday injury reports.  We plan to make this a permanent switch.

New Features, Updates, and the Like

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

We've made a number of updates for this upcoming football fantasy postseason.  

  • Auction drafts - a new way to draft postseason players via a live bidding process. 
  • Team Kickers - in addition to team quarterbacks and team defense and special teams, we have added team kickers as an optional roster position configuration.
  • Per Round Salary Cap - we've added a new setting "Require Managers to Select New Team Each Round" for per round salary cap games. After each round, rosters will automatically be cleared and managers will need to pick new players based upon updated salaries. 
  • DST - we have renamed the DEF roster position slot to DST. Nothing changes in terms of defensive and special teams scoring.
  • Abbreviations - we've created a helpful guide to assist with acronyms used by Fantasy Postseason. 
  • Cookie Policy Acceptance - users will be prompted to accept our site's cookie policy.

We have deprecated support of Silent Drafts -...

Protip: Using Bracket View During Your Fantasy Draft

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

We've recently added support for a Bracket View page for College Basketball Tournament leagues.  The page can be found under your league's Players sub-menu and can be a useful tool to consult during your drafts. This page shows the number of players drafted on a given team.  More importantly, you can consult it to ensure that you don't draft players from different teams that might be too closely grouped in a given region.  For example, if you pick players from a #4 seed (such as Villanova) and also a #5 seed (such as Purdue) and they are in the same region, you're going to lose players if those two teams meet in the 2nd round of the NCAA tournament.

So before you enter your draft, open up a browser tab specifically for Bracket View and refresh it as you're making your picks, you'll put yourself in the best position to win your tournament fantasy league.

2020-21 Playoff Fantasy Football Changes

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

The NFL postseason has been expanded to a 14-team field and therefore the player pool will be larger by 2 teams.  Six wildcard teams will play during Wildcard weekend.

Second, we've transitioned to the official NFL real-time stats feed via SportRadar.  As a part of this change, we've had to remove a handful of niche scoring categories.  

The following scoring categories are no longer supported:

  • QB Pick Six
  • 40-Yard, 50-Yard Rushes/Receptions/Passes
  • Rushes/Receptions/Passes for First Downs

Of course, commissioners can make manual scoring adjustments if needed.

League Pricing

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

For the first time since 2016 we will be increasing our league pricing costs.  Premium leagues will be increasing from $19.99 to $24.99, and premium pool leagues will be increasing from $29.99 to $39.99.  We do our utmost to manage our expenses very carefully, but there are some items that recognize annual price increases that are completely out of our control. 

On a positive note, with premium pool leagues we have decided to reduce our costs for our very large leagues; upgrades over 200 users will now be $25 per additional 100 users (as opposed to each additional 50 users).  We will also be investing in a switch to a new email service provider to help improve our relays.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we implement these changes.  We sincerely appreciate each and every one of our users, and thank you for making us your fantasy home for the playoffs since 2008.

Share Email Addresses

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

Over the years, we've received a number of requests from commissioners to be able to view email addresses from users in their leagues.  Due to our privacy policy, we've avoided providing direct access - however, we did create custom league pages where new users were warned that joining that league would expose their email address to the commissioner (and they could choose to either join the league or not).

To simplify the process, we've added a new league setting called 'Require Managers To Share Email Addresses' that commissioners can set to 'Yes' when they create their league.  Once set, potential league members will be prompted with the following warning:  'The commissioner for this league requires that they can see the email address associated with each league member. Please confirm that you still want to join this league?'.  At that time, users can choose to 'Join' or 'Leave' the league.
