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.

The Fake Basketball - March Madness Cheat Sheets

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

It's NCAA basketball tournament time, and The Fake Basketball is once again providing cheat sheets:

From The Fake Basketball team:  "Much like last season, we are bringing you a wide array of tools and information to help you with any of your NCAA Tournament Fantasy needs. Our Customizable Bracket and Rankings Excel has no peer on the market for your March Madness draft needs, but there's so much more: brackets, bracket analysis, individual player rankings, draft strategy, sleepers, locks, injuries, play-in round analysis, you name it, we have it in our comprehensive Tourney Package."


College Basketball Tournament Fantasy Leagues

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

Registration is now open for our college basketball tournament fantasy leagues.  Our offering provides a means to play fantasy sports during the classic March NCAA tournament and is one of our more popular fantasy games.  We offer a number of different formats for this game but the most popular is the standard player pool approach where the further your players advance, the more points your fantasy tournament team scores.  Some leagues make things more interesting by limiting the number of players that you can select from a given team.  Others put restrictions on the number of players that can be drafted from each seed.  Create your league now and enjoy the tournament like never before!


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.

Salary Cap Improvements

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

Following a number of user requests, we've enhanced our salary cap add/drop process by adding a shadow interface where players can be added and dropped without impacting moves.  As changes are made, a running total of 'Pending Moves' (player adds) is shown, along with a warning that pending changes must be saved.  Once player changes are made that fit under the salary cap and contain your desired players, select the 'Save' button - only then will new player additions count against your total number of moves.  If you wish to cancel all player changes, select the 'Discard' button (no moves will be counted).

Please note the following:
- This change will only be made available for salary cap leagues that limit the number of free agent moves and allow unlimited player selection.
- This change will be made active starting with the college basketball tournament in March.

Fantasy Postseason turns 10!

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

“There are no sites out there that support short term or playoff rotos - so I was thinking, why not create our own?” – and with that simple email in March 2008, the initial concept of what would become Fantasy Postseason was born. 

We were just a few guys who had been friends for years, loved sports, and loved fantasy sports.  Unfortunately for us, there were no fantasy sites out there that did anything for the postseason (our favorite time of year to play it).  To make things worse, the time and effort involved to track everything manually was growing exponentially by the year, and was putting one of our favorite pastimes in serious jeopardy.  In lieu of scrapping it forever, we decided at that critical moment to automate it, and wound up creating a site of our own. 

The months that followed were intense, but by September 2008, FantasyPostseason.com was somehow up and running, and ready to roll for the MLB Playoffs.  Our first users...

  • Slow Drafts: Can't agree on a live draft time for your buddies? This approach allows you to engage in a live draft without a timer over several hours or days.
  • Draft Room Enhancements: We've redesigned visual aspects of the draft room and have also added a number of minor features including Auto Pick support, and a Draft Board.
  • Team QBs: We've included the option to add Team QBs to your NFL postseason fantasy football player pool, instead of having individual QBs. 
  • NFL Start Once Usability: We've made it easier to identify players to start in the Start Once format by hiding players that are on bye...
