For example, the guy that scored the 2nd most points in my league finished 8th and didn't make the playoffs.
Dang, that's some bad luck right there.
It is, but that happens a lot where a low scoring team ends up with a good record and a high scoring teams ends up with a poor record. That is an extreme case with that many points and a 6-8 record, but that sort of concept is pretty common. I think if you made the tiebreaker points scored, I'd probably be ok with it, as opposed to record. That seems much more fair, since points scored has no random luck of the draw involved with it.
On another note, I'm in the 3rd place game in my league (there is money on the line for 3rd) and my opponent has Burrow. I'm up huge (like 60 points) so I don't think my game will be affected, however the championship game absolutely is affected by the potential cancellation as one team has 92.82 points and Bass and the other team has 86.30 points and Singletary. If the game is postponed and never made up, I have no idea how that is going to be decided, and even if the game is made up, what if Singletary (or Bass) gets hurt against the Patriots and can't play in the make up game against the Bengals. Or do they just use the stats from the Patriots game for those 2 players. Do they just take the projected points? My commish has said whatever yahoo does they will go with, but there is a ton of money on the line in that game and it seems like a strange weird way to have a fantasy football season end.
