Setting up your league's end-of-year tournament.
In weekly head-to-head matchup leagues there is a single-elimination playoff to determine the league champion at the end of every season
Yes, the commissioner will have the option to place whatever teams they want into the playoffs after the regular season ends. Go to
League » Settings » Edit Playoff Seeds.
The NFL re-seeds after every round so that the worst-seeded team will always match up against the highest-seeded remaining team in the next round. If you select to re-seed, your league will also reseed.
Yes. The consolation bracket is automatically scheduled. There is also a third-place game involving the losers of the semi-final round.
At this time we only offer consolation brackets in which winners advance to the next round (just like the playoff bracket, but for non-playoff teams).
Fleaflicker's playoffs system mirrors the NFL's. Division winners are given the top seeds. The best remaining teams (wildcards) are seeded next. First round byes are awarded to the top teams, if necessary. Check your league's
Power & Playoff Rank tiebreakers to see how seeds are determined.
If you go to the playoff bracket (
League » Playoffs), there is a detailed breakdown of the tiebreakers in the left-hand column of the page (desktop view). If you don't see anything listed in the Tiebreakers column, then it means that the commissioner has edited the playoff seedings and the tiebreakers no longer apply.
This section will be empty if the commissioner has edited the playoff seeding, overriding to the tiebreakers.
You will not see the words "clinched" or "eliminated" until a team has a 100% chance of that outcome.
If your league has divisions and uses the best division record tiebreaker, it's possible to have a league rank that differs from the playoff seed.
You can specify the last week of the season from your playoff settings page:
League » Settings » Edit Playoff Schedule » Championship Week.
No, we currently do not offer a way to do this, sorry.
Yes, consolation games count towards your overall Fleaflicker record but not towards your playoff record.
Yes, all teams can set their lineups through Week 17 regardless of when your fantasy playoffs end. Owners can calculate their scores by looking at their roster page.
During your league's playoffs, Fleaflicker never resets the waiver wire order. (Teams that make a waiver claim will continue to move to the end of the waiver order.)
Fleaflicker automatically schedules the correct number of first-round byes required for your playoff bracket so that there are no byes required for subsequent rounds.
There are two things you will need to do the week the playoffs start to ensure that teams from each conference or division keep playing each other through the playoffs until the final match-up.
