    Playoff Tie Breaker

    What are the tie breakers for playoffs? Head to Head is not the first tie breaker it appears.

    The tiebreaker is net points. If these are tied it is a coin flip.

    I have coded the NFL-style tiebreakers for another project. They are really complicated and don’t reliably select the “true” stronger team. So in Sandbox we use this simpler tiebreaker.

    I want to go on record as that is a horrible decision. These are not balanced schedules, net points is a terrible tie breaker.

    Points differential is as good/fair of a tiebreaker as any. The exception being playing a one game tiebreaker challenge type game mid-week, such as Wednesday or Thursday game so the playoff field, seeds, and schedule would be set in time for Sunday Wild Card games.

    Most fantasy leagues are points.
