Update on Per Round Salaries

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

This year we added a new setting to salary cap leagues that requires managers to pick a new lineup each week based on updated salaries.  Our system pushed out new salaries as soon as the round ended without factoring in new projections associated with some outlier performances by players such as Jerick McKinnon, Giovani Bernard, and Byron Pringle.  Commissioners have the ability to make salary adjustments via 'Modify Salaries' on the 'Admin' page or can contact us at admin@fantasypostseason.com with your 5 digit league ID and we'll refresh the salaries in your league.


How to manage survivor pools

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

At Fantasy Postseason, we do not natively support playoff survivor pools.  That is, if a commish wants to eliminate fantasy teams, they will need to determine which teams to eliminate and then eliminate those fantasy teams manually.  There are a few ways to accomplish this:

(1) Remove Eliminated Teams From League

The commissioner can remove fantasy teams from the league via the 'Owner Management' page (accessed via the 'Admin' tab on the league home page).  Removed teams will no longer be able to access the league.

(2) Prevent Teams from Accumulating Further Scores

The commissioner can drop the entire roster of a fantasy team via the 'Roster Management' page (on the 'Admin' tab).  Empty rosters will not score additional fantasy points.  Note that in a league that allows free agency (or additional player pick ups) the commissioner will need to take additional action to prevent eliminated managers from adding...

Menu Pinning

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

We've added a new 'Menu Pinning' option under 'Edit My Fantasy Leagues List' (which is found on the User Profile page in the Account Management section). This allows for the option to show or hide leagues in the drop-down under the user name in the top right. Note that the default behavior is to show your 3 most recent fantasy leagues. With this new feature, you can decide what leagues are made available for quick drop-down access. This is useful if you belong to several fantasy leagues.

 


Adding Fantasy Postseason to Your Mobile Device Home Page

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

A few years ago we discontinued support of our iOS mobile app and focused on building a responsive UI that works well across all different platforms. While this decision has allowed us to consolidate our engineering focus and speed up the delivery of features, we do recognize that an extra step is required to access Fantasy Postseason via a mobile browser.  However, there is indeed a way to add Fantasy Posteason to your mobile device home page, saving you a step.  Check out the following instructions based on your particular mobile device:

iOS devices (MacRumors)

Android devices (wikiHow)

Note that if you want direct access to a particular league for easy access to check scores, etc, we suggest short-cutting your postseason fantasy league's home page to the home page of your mobile device. That way, when you click on the FP icon, you'll be sent directly to your fantasy league's home page.

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 Abbreviations Page

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. 
  • 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 - but note that a similar...

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.
