I don't know why sites like Yahoo's don't allow Roto leagues to do playoffs. Play your Roto league thru the beginning of September, seed the teams, and play a couple rounds of playoffs. Why not?
Why would you want to do it this way? This would completely kill the spirit of Roto? I actually had never played H2H before this year, so I joined a couple of Public H2H leagues (yeah it's stupid, but I figured why not). Anyway, I blew everyone out of the water during the season in both leagues, get byes, then lose in the semis in both leagues to lesser teams. I guess it is like real life, and if your guys go cold then you're screwed. But it is why I prefer Roto to H2H (not saying I wouldn't ever play H2H again or anything).
Meanwhile, in my main money Roto league, I was last at the end of May (thanks to Beltran, RJ, Thome, Lowell, Mota, Ollie and a host of others), but through good managing, pick ups, and trading (and of course discovering this place), I've steadily climbed the ladder. Up to fourth at the end of August, and right now I stand in third, just two points from second and three and a half from first. If they would have called this thing September 1st so we could play some stupid playoffs, I'd probably be out of the money, when now I've got a chance to win with two weeks to go.
