  1. S. Ohtani

    Since S. Ohtani is split into 2 different players, the batter and the pitcher, Ohtani the pitcher should still have DL eligibility! It is known he will not pitch for several more weeks and not being able to keep Ohtani (the pitcher) in the DL spot on rosters is not fair to owners. Anyone who owns him is forced to either drop him or have him take up a roster spot when he is not going to pitch. Please do the right thing and make this correction.

  2. Allow player swap once a game is PPD

    Once a game is PPD, if there are bench players available that can be swapped due to start times being later, this should absolutely be implemented. Feels like a large miss and something that could be easily changed.

  3. Create a Commissioner's Protected or Exempt List

    We do farm club drafts each year in my 3-sport dynasty league -- baseball, football, and basketball and hold those players' rights for up to 3 years. If there could be a commissioner-controlled list of "protected" players we could put those guys on it would be very helpful. It would eliminate the failure to check the list and accidentally pick up someone else's farm clubber. Commish would just have to release the player/add him to a roster when someone wants to activate them. Also - for issues like the 45 newly drafted players (Mize, Bart, etc) that were posted, they…

  4. End fantasy baseball playoffs earlier

    Everyone in my league checks out as soon as football starts. Give the commish the option to end the playoffs some time in August. I'm guessing a lot of fantasy baseball people feel this way.

  5. Need to add maximum IP or limit starts per week in H2H points leagues

    Need allow commish to add a MAXIMUM innings pitched or set number of starts per week.

    It's too easy to win when you can stream starting pitchers in a points league (we do have a 5 transaction limit, but still need an innings max).

  6. 2 Week Playoff Matchups with Adjustable Schedule

    I would love to see Yahoo allow for 2 week playoff matchups and an adjustable schedule that allows you to end regular season whenever you want. These options are currently available on ESPN. After doing our fantasy baseball on Yahoo since 2006, we switched over to ESPN this season because our managers simply prefer 2 week playoff matchups and how it rewards a "true" winner.

    Especially in a sport like baseball that entails so much randomness, a 1 week matchup at any given time is almost a "crapshoot". Also, allowing for an adjustable schedule would also be a great feature…

  7. Add keeper tags to the mobile app

    The mobile app does not display the 'k' next to keepers like the desktop version does. I can't see which players are keepers on my phone.

  8. Allow players to be benched or inserted during double header

    Nothing infuriates me more than when a player has a double header and I lose a FULL DAY of production at the plate from a PINCH HITTING appearance. It's 2018, Yahoo. We've put up with this nonsense for too long. Fix it so I can either bench the player if he's not in the starting lineup after the 1st game or insert them for the 2nd game if they didn't play the first.

  9. Add More NA spots

    NA spots are currently capped at 10. I'd like to see the maximum raised to 15 or 20 to allow keeper/dynasty leagues to have more in-depth minor league possibilities. Yahoo has done a good job of expanding the player pool, but when you can only roster 10 NA, it caps these newly added players usage.

  10. Player Pool

    Please add more prospects to the player pool. Keeper leagues often have very deep leagues and having more prospects available would be very beneficial. Players like Wander Franco SS TB is not available, and he is a top 50 prospect.

  12. end The regular season at the all star break, and have a double elimination tournament for the 8 playoffs teams to crown the champion!

    Our league loves playing fantasy baseball, but the season gets so long winded, and some loss interest in the 2nd half, and also fantasy Football begins to gear up.... our league would like to have an option of ending our 12 team regular season at the all star break, and then begin a very interesting double elimination playoff tournament for the 8 playoff teams that move on! Thank you for entertaining this idea!

  13. PLEASE change the last week of playoffs !!!

    Joined a pro-league and there was no option of changing the playoff dates because it's defaulted by yahoo. So you wait until the last week of the regular season as your last week of playoffs?? This is as absurd as playing your championship fantasy football finals in week 17. PLEASE move this up at least 2 weeks for the finals to end. I won, but honestly I got lucky. I had about 10 people not start due to rest and 4 pitchers that got their start removed. It was absolutely absurd ! Thank you !!

  14. Expanded Commish Ohtani/Future 2-Way Player Options

    So we realize you guys decided to make Ohtani 2 separate players. Many people are obviously upset about this (myself included). I understand that either choice will ruffle some feathers, so why not make a commissioner option to treat Ohtani as 1 or 2 players?

    Commissioner Option 1: Treat him as 2 separate players, both take up a roster spot, etc. the way you guys said it would be this year.

    Commissioner Option 2: Have him in the system as 2 players but he would act as 1 player. For example, under this option, pitcher Ohtani and hitter Ohtani only…

  15. Put the players on the DL when their team announces it. You're waiting several hours which can effect the abilities to move lineups around.

    I am not sure how your software works to recognize when a player is placed on the DL, but teams are announcing players on the DL several hours prior to Yahoo actually designating the players as DL eligible. This can cause issues for a manager that is trying to get max value of their roster.

  16. Give the option of having a two-week Championship!

    The league commissioner should be able to customize (or at least choose from more options) when the fantasy playoffs begins/ends. Having a two-week championship is an option that every member of our league supports, but we are unable to implement.

  19. Historical data; Historical graphs; Customizable Rankings; Advanced Statistics

    I would like see graphs of player ranks (and other statistics) plotted over time. For example, What was Player A's season (Total) rank on 9/11, 9/28, 9/25, and how does this graph look? Incorporate some ideas from stock graphs!

    Also, customizable ranking would be nice incorporating statistics not measured directly in the game: baseball OBPS, hard contact %, etc.

    Finally, making statistics searchable by dates would be nice!

    Keep up the good work! You guys are awesome!

  20. Keep league open all year

    Keep the leagues open all year. Yes, close for 2-3 days for maintenance but otherwise, allow leagues to draft, add players, look at stats, etc for the whole year.
