Responsive Design = No More Mobile App

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

Over the last year we invested in the re-design of the UI (user interface) of our website. We've leveraged several Javascript libraries (such as Twitter Bootstrap) and HTML5 to build a responsive website that works on any new browser (including those available on mobile devices). All of the functionality previously available in the app is now available via your device's browser (Chrome, Safari, etc). In fact, with this new approach, as we add new features to FantasyPostseason.com, the features are immediately available to all devices.

At present, we have no plans to further support any platform specific (e.g. iOS or Android) apps.

Fantasy Football in the Postseason

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

At Fantasy Postseason, we offer a number of different options for those who want to keep playing fantasy football during the NFL playoffs. There are three basic configurations that most commissioners use.  

The most common and also most basic is the Player Pool - the further your players advance, the more points your fantasy playoff team scores. This is a simple game format and is especially good for a large number of participants.  

The second format that is growing in popularity is the Start Once format. Managers can start anyone they want each weekend of the playoffs, however they can only start that given player once throughout the postseason. There's a lot of strategy with this approach and usually keeps managers highly engaged throughout the entire postseason.  

Finally, you'll see a number of Salary Cap format leagues where managers build their teams with player salary considerations. There's strategy and deliberation with this...


Playoff Fantasy Football Registration

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

We've opened up registration for our 2016-2017 playoff fantasy football leagues.

A number of new features have been added since last year including the following:

  • New Responsive User Interface Design - Our new UI is cleaner, more usable, and device independent.
  • Limiting the # of Players from Each Team -  Commissioners can now limit the number of players from each playoff team. This prevents managers from "loading up" or going all in on one or two particular teams.
  • Requiring 1 for 1 Free Agency Transactions - This configuration option requires that free agent player swaps are one for one. This is particularly useful if you are in a Salary Cap league and you want to prevent players from dropping 2 less expensive players to pick up 1 more expensive player.
  • Allowance for Late Joins - Commissioners can now allow managers to join after a league has been activated.
  • Creating Proxy Teams - Commissioners can create teams on behalf of other owners....

New Features To Go Along With New UI

In addition to updating our user interface to be compatible with all devices, we have added a number of new features this summer.  Here's the run down.

  • Limiting the # of Players from Each Team -  Commissioners can now limit the number of players from each playoff team. This prevents managers from "loading up" or going all in on one or two particular teams.
  • Requiring 1 for 1 Free Agency Transactions - This configuration option requires that free agent player swaps are one for one. This is particularly useful if you are in a Salary Cap league and you want to prevent players from dropping 2 less expensive players to pick up 1 more expensive player.
  • Longer Preservation of Previous Year's Leagues - We will now keep league history around for 2 years. You can study the prior year's rosters and player performance to gain a leg up on your competition.
  • Improved Usability for Pick One Daily Leagues - We have a special...

Pick One Daily

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

After a few requests to accommodate a format similar to the popular 'Drive to the Finals' NBA Playoffs fantasy game, we've added a new league format named 'Pick One Daily' (currently for NBA, NHL, and MLB leagues only).  Main concepts:

  • There is no draft.
  • Scoring options are configurable (i.e. points, rebounds, assists).
  • Commissioners should activate the league only after all managers have joined. 
  • Teams consist of only one player.  Note: Bench slots can be added to allow for lineup setting for days in advance.
  • Once the league is activated, managers need to add one player to their team on each game day via free agency.
  • Players can only be used once.  Once used, that player must be replaced with another one to generate additional scoring.
