Locked eliminated teams question

I have Yahoo set to lock eliminated teams. However, I did fail to realize that this meant you have to be completely eliminated from any game, including consolation bracket. Obviously moves have been made that could change things in the coming first week of playoffs. I do not like changing things in the middle of a season. So do I leave as is for this year and 100% clarify next year or reverse and assign changes?

On a side note as the James Conner owner in no way would this benefit me in getting Samuels.
