NFL Playoffs Begin

The NFL Playoffs at fantasypostseason.com have now begun. League sign-ups and drafts are now closed. Good luck!

Free Agency

Due to popular demand, we have just added a new Free Agency feature at fantasypostseason.com. Currently this feature is only available for the NFL playoffs.

Managers can now add/drop players via the Free Agents option from the league home page. To add a player, simply select a player from the free-agent pool, and then select a player to drop from your team.

Important Notes:
- Add/Drops must respect position requirements. For example, if a league requires 1 Defense, the system will not allow a manager to either drop a Defense to leave themselves with 0, or add a Defense to leave themselves with more than 1.

- There is a locking date for add/drops by team:
1/03: ARI, ATL, SD, IND
1/04: MIA, BAL, MIN, PHI
1/10: TEN, CAR
1/11: NYG, PIT

Once a team starts their first game, managers will no longer be able to add/drop players on those teams.

Fantasy Playoff Projections

One of the key features at fantasypostseason.com, is our Projected Points value for each player. At the end of the regular season, we flag the playoff teams and assign a seed to each:

MLB Playoffs: #1 - #4 (AL/NL)
NFL Playoffs: #1 - #6 (AFC/NFC)
NBA Playoffs: #1 - #8 (Eastern/Western)
NHL Playoffs: #1 - #8 (Eastern/Western)

We then assign a total projected number of games per team (per round and by sport); we assume that the team with the higher seed will always advance in each round. This value is then applied against each player's regular season statistics to derive a ranking of the projected leading scorers for the playoffs. Projections are customized by league (based on the values assigned to each scoring category).
