How playoff tiebreakers are used in Fantasy Basketball and Hockey

Tiebreakers for playoff games in Fantasy Basketball and Hockey are determined by, 'Higher seed wins' or 'Best regular season record vs. opponent wins'. This setting can't be changed in Public or Pro Leagues, but is available in Private Leagues until playoffs start.

Higher seed wins

Team with the highest playoff seed automatically wins the tiebreaker. This is the default setting for all Public and Pro Leagues and can't be changed.

Best regular season record vs. opponent wins

This tiebreaker setting differs depending on the league's scoring type.

  • Head-to-Head - Tiebreaker goes to the team with the most stat category wins, not overall matchup wins and losses.
  • Head-to-Head One win and points - Tiebreaker is awarded to the team with the best overall matchup winning percentage against opponent during the regular season.

  'Best regular season record vs opponent' tied too? - 'Higher seed' will be used to break the tie..
