  1. Pre-draft rankings

    Please add a search feature in the pre-draft rankings. Having to scroll thru names either by alphabetical order or rank order is pretty annoying and adding a search feature seems like an easy fix.

  2. Please bring back the 10 man on demand draft and shorten the **** pick time...

    It seems the big thing now is to let every ******* second tick off the clock when a draft is conducted now. It takes 3 ******* hours to do a 12 man draft. UTTER ********

  3. League Draft Board to display on a big screen while drafting on your device.

    When we have a group of guys come over to draft, I'd love to put a league draft board on the big screen while each of us have our own devices to make our draft picks.

    I think it'll help create a better community environment while drafting (and also my 9-year-old son won't be mouth-breathing into my ear while looking over my shoulder while I draft).

  4. Let us re-sort the pre-draft rankings without having to create an entirely new list

    Currently, if you don't like the default pre-draft rankings, you have to basically create an entirely new list in your preferred order by clicking the arrows to add players to the "Preferred" list.

    Why not just allow us to drag-and-drop names from the default list? If I don't want Scherzer at #1 (I mean, seriously Yahoo!?) and a handful of other players, usually pitchers, in weird spots, I shouldn't have to create a whole new list of nearly 300 players.

    Just let me drag Scherzer down to a more reasonable spot and continue to use the default list as is.

  5. Please allow Commish to pause the draft more than 5 times or 15 mins. How about full control?

    ESPN let’s be the Commish pause the draft and start it back up anytime they want. I suggest Yahoo do the same as there is no valid reason to have limited pauses. Unforeseen can things happen and having a simple pause and unpause button would be great. Thanks.

  6. Random selection of Managers on Draft Day Fantasy Baseball Flawed

    I signed up for two Yahoo Fantasy Public Baseball Leagues.
    Here is the issue,
    1) My first Yahoo Public Baseball league had seven, yes, seven mangers listed as "Diamond or Platinum. I thought this was strange given the chances of top 5 percentile managers assigned to one league.
    2) My second public fantasy baseball league--Yep, there were a total of 6 managers ranked as "Diamond or Platinum--all of them ranked in the "Top 5 percentile of mangers."
    Statistically this is not fair ! Not only for the six or seven managers participating that are ranked high...but what about the managers…

  7. support full/real keeper functionality

    Yahoo should start actually supporting keeper functionality, where you can track rosters, years kept, salaries, etc., and can set how many years players can be kept, salary bumps, etc. CBS has been doing this for about 10 years already so it's very achievable technologically.

    Forcing commissioners to enter (and calculate) all keeper info by hand isn't actually supporting keeper leagues - what Yahoo calls "Keeper Leagues" is really "recurring leagues", in which nothing other than team names and league settings are saved.

  8. Allow user to change player slot during the Draft. 1B/OF. Owner should choose where he is.

    Allow user to change player slot during the draft. If a player has multiple position eligibility such as 1B/OF, the owner should choose where he is put in your team during the draft. That way I can draft around what I've picked, not where yahoo sticks them on my team.

  9. Wildcard in custom list

    Why can't we put a Wildcard position abbreviation (e.g. SS or 1B, LF, OF, ...) in our preferred ranking list to mean give me the highest ranking Player at that position at that time. That way we can control the order in which positions are filled.

  10. Fix the Live Draft Software or Get Rid of It

    Incredibly disappointed in Yahoo's auction draft software. Managers ran a little late. Paused the draft for 15 minutes to allow them to arrive. Come to find out that you cannot pause the draft again. FOR 5+ HOURS. This rendered the draft completely useless. Everyone is ready to jump platforms after this mess.

  12. Make a change to pre-rank settings to allow you to designate a position to be drafted in a specific round.

    Allow the ability to select what position you want drafted in a particular round when you pre-rank players and have to auto-draft.

  14. 14 Team Mock Drafts!

    There needs to be 14 team mock drafts available. I have had a 14 team league since 2008 and can't believe Yahoo! still doesn't offer a mock draft bigger than 12 teams. I need a 14 team mock draft to prepare! Let's do it.

  15. Allow teams to draft more players than there are position spots for

    Since trading draft picks is allowed sometimes a team will have more picks than position spots. It would be nice if Yahoo allowed this to happen especially since you could draft some players that will start the season on the DL and you can put them in this spot. In the past on other site this was allowed and each team just needed to have a legal roster once the season started to gain points.

  16. Putting in draft results

    Can you please make hide drafted players the default setting instead of having to check the box everytime I go to the page. I'm sure plenty of leagues do slow drafts, and have to go to the page multiple times. Also can you please make it so that if I leave off in the middle of round 4, when I go back and put new picks in it goes back to Round 4 instead of what an individual teams' picks have been. I have to click the Round tab, then round 4 then click the box to hide drafted players.…

  18. Update auto-draft settings

    For two years running myself and others in my league have not been able to attend the draft. We have set our pre-draft ranking and hoped for the best only to find that players we pre-ranked were not chosen seemingly due to one or the other of the rules below. Regardless of what kind of league you are in, if you pre-rank players that should over ride any other default settings

    1. All starting positions are filled before any bench players are chosen.
    2. The system determines a maximum number of players to draft per position (starters plus bench) so…

    Increase the number of PAUSES for drafts in case of connection or other issues that arise (emergency, disconnected from the internet)

    Other leagues like ESPN have unlimited number of pauses
