Tiebreaker-3 way Division Tie (Ease my mind!)

Postby MrEggSandwich » Tue Dec 18, 2012 4:18 pm

As the season comes to a close, I usually take a look at my league's rules. Of course, the dreaded tiebreaker is at the forefront of every commissioner's mind.

Below is my league's tie-breakers. The only tiebreaker that concerns me is the three club division tiebreaker. Is there any way that a team with a worse divisional record gets in over a team with a better division record?

For example:

Team A/B/C are tied at 7-6. Team D is out.

Team A is 3-1 in games between A/B/C (Division Record= 3-3, 0-2 VS team D)
Team B is 2-2 in games between A/B/C (Division Record= 4-2, 1-1 VS team D)
Team C is 1-3 in games between A/B/C (Division Record= 2-4, 1-1 VS team D)

Am I paranoid, or in this scenario, Team A gets in, even thought Team B has the better division record?

Tie-Breakers:

To break a tie within a division:

Two Clubs

1. Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
3. Total fantasy points scored for the season.
4. Power Ranking (As determined by the site).
5. Coin flip (two clubs)

Three or More Clubs

1. Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
3. Total fantasy points scored for the season.
4. Power Ranking (As determined by the site).

Note: If two clubs remain tied after third or other clubs are eliminated, tie breaker reverts to step 1 of applicable two-club format.

To break a tie for a Wildcard:

Two Clubs

1. Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
2. Total fantasy points scored for the season.
3. Power Ranking (As determined by the site).
4. Coin flip.

Three or More Clubs

1. Head-to-head sweep, if applicable. (For ties between 3 or more teams, this step is only applied if there is a head-to-head sweep; i.e., if one club has defeated each of the others or if one club has lost to each of the others.)
2. Total fantasy points scored for the season.
3. Power Ranking (As determined by the site).
4. Points against for season (lowest is winner)

Note: If two clubs remain tied after third or other clubs are eliminated, tie breaker reverts to step 1 of applicable two-club format.

In the event of a tie in a playoff game- Winner will be determined by Total fantasy points scored for the season

The first tiebreaker is H2H. Team A wins, the second tiebreaker does not matter. Team A won the games that counted. They should advance. == If you want to make things clearer, just make the first tiebreaker total points scored. Fantasy is not like real football where there is a defense and you are actually playing the other team. I don't think H2H is a true indicator of how good a team is in fantasy. Total points scored indicates how good a team is.
