Regular Season Tiebreakers

Our system automatically generates playoff seeds for your league based on the regular season standings. There are two factors for determining these playoff seeds:
  1. Division Winner(s)
  2. Winning Percentage
If two or more of your league members had the same winning percentage at the end of the regular season, your League Manager can select from the following options as the be-all end-all tie-breaking system (and if they choose to do nothing then they're stuck with the default order shown below):
  • Overall points scored (default setting for all leagues unless changed by League Manager)
  • Head-to-Head record*
  • Division record
  • Overall points-against
* When Head-to-Head record is selected as the tiebreaker criteria, and in the event that three or more teams have the same winning percentage at the end of the regular season, these teams must have played the same number of games for it to be used.
If your league doesn't like the default order, your League Manager can change them by going to the "Playoff Matchups" page and clicking on the "Edit" link.
