Often times, leagues have different rules around how playoff matchups are determined.

Sleeper fantasy football leagues allow commissioners to manually modify playoff seedings so you can do things like give the highest scorer the second place seed and a bye week.

This feature is available the week leading up to the postseason on the playoff bracket interface for commissioners.

If you have different rules for who makes it into playoffs or the seeding order, go to league settings on your phone. Then, scroll to the bottom, and tap on "edit playoff seeding".

Next, tap on the seed that you want to update and you'll see a list of teams show up at the bottom of your phone. Tap on the team that you want to switch. IMPORTANT: after you've made all the changes, tap update in the upper right before exiting the screen.

Reseed between rounds:

Sleeper will support reseeding between playoff rounds for the 2020 season.

Two Week Championships:

Currently, we do not support a two-week championship, only two-week playoffs.
If this is important to your league, you can work around it by turning playoffs off. Go to general settings, to turn playoffs off. We are hoping to have this feature available for 2020 leagues.

Consolation Bracket vs. Toilet Bowl:

Teams that miss the playoffs are entered into a consolation bracket (up to 8 teams with the worst records).

You can choose between a Consolation Bracket or Toilet Bowl.

In the Consolation Bracket, the winner advances to the next round, until there becomes the consolation winner.  

In the Toilet Bowl, the loser advances to the next round, until there becomes an ultimate loser, who is crowned the "💩King" (Last place).

The goal is to exit the Toilet Bowl as quickly as possible to claim 7th and 8th spots and avoid being the worst person in your league.
