Pick One Daily Interface Updates

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

Last year we introduced the Pick One Daily fantasy gaming format for the NBA, NHL, and MLB playoffs. In this model, Managers choose a new player to start each day, but can only use that player once during the entire playoff period. It's a lot of fun, requires strategy, and keeps managers engaged throughout the postseason.

This year we created a new user interface to simplify the player selection process.  See below:

 

Managers access the 'My Daily Starters' page, click on 'Pick A Starter', and can then select a player for that given day.  Further, no bench management is required. Last year, managers would need to manually drop players that have started to make room for new players; this process has been simplified considerably. If you have any questions or suggestions for improvement, please contact us at admin@fantasypostseason.com.

After the first round, the number of goalies is cut in half, and so on, and so on until you reach the two remaining during the Stanley Cup finals round.

Consider the results of a playoff fantasy league with the following scoring settings for Goalies.

Goalies:
Per Save: 0.1
Per Goal Allowed: -1.0
Per Win: 3.0
Per Loss: -1.0
Shut Out: 1.0
Save % >= .920: 0.5
GAA <= 2.0: 0.5


This particular league used "Team Goalies" and to no surprise the top two scorers were the goalies from the Chicago Blackhawks (66.00) and the...
