These options control the appearance & data for the league Standings report.
Update Scores & Standings on the League Standings Report -
As Soon As Preliminary (Thursday, Saturday and Sunday) Results Are Available. Select this option to have preliminary scores calculated shortly after the end of each preliminary day as mentioned above. Note that live player and team scores will still be calculated during the games.
NOTE: If this option is checked, the system will award preliminary wins and losses for franchises based on early weekly results after each game day has ended. These preliminary wins and losses will be updated accordingly as subsequent game days - including the final (MNF) game and results - are completed.
Name of Custom Column X to be Added - Define a value in any of these five text boxes to display up to five custom columns on your Standings
report. These custom columns are useful for leagues that track unique franchise-specific information that the site cannot automatically track for you. Once you've defined the name of a custom column, you can then use the [Custom Column] Standings Adjuster screen (found in For Commissioners > Setup > Adjust Scores and Standings) to populate the data for this column for each franchise each week.
Standings Legend - Use this to set up a "legend" for your standings report. A typical legend might be set up something like this: X = Clinched playoff spot, Y = Clinched Division, Z = Clinched Conference. The standings icons X, Y, and Z can be set up on the Icons Setup
Standings Sort Criteria - Define the order of the sort criteria to be used in calculating the weekly standings.
Overall Winning Percentage. This is the most common primary sort criteria that uses wins & losses.
Head-to-Head Record. This cannot be used as a primary sort criteria as it only compares the H2H matchups of two teams individually.
Total Points Scored. For Total Points (non Head-to-Head) leagues, this selection sorts by year-to-date fantasy points.
Reverse Order of Opponents Total Points Scored. This option awards a higher ranking to teams who's opponents have scored fewer points. For example, if Franchise A allowed 100 total points year-to-date, and Franchise B allowed 110 total points year-to-date, Franchise A would be ranked higher than Franchise B for this sort criteria. This too should never be used as a primary sort.
Conference Winning Percentage. (Only displayed if league has conferences defined in General League Setup). Same as Overall Winning %, but restricts sort to teams in each conference.
Divisional Winning Percentage. (Only displayed if league has conferences defined in General League Setup). Same as Overall Winning %, but restricts sort to teams in each division.
Power Rank. This advanced level ranking system offers an alternate way to compare franchises. Please see the Power Rank report for an explanation of how this number is calculated.
Victory Points. Another advanced level ranking offering more flexibility based on the victory points setup for your league.
Last Week's Point Total - To allow commissioners to sort the league standings report based on the franchise score of the most recently completed week of the season.
