    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

  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. Create a new auction format like your waiver feature in auction leagues; Player gets nominated and all GM's have 10 seconds to make a blind

    Create a new auction draft format...player gets nominated, all GM's have 10 seconds to make a blind bid...highest bid wins and is announced by computer within 5 seconds. Could auction 3-4 players per minute with this.

    Yahoo already uses this on waivers, so technology is there. This format would drastically speed up time of auction drafts.

  5. Allow player for future draft pick trades (without the balancing draft pick)

    Let me set this up. Draft is 25 rounds. Most teams have 10 keepers, so most teams have 15 picks.

    Next--- Team A trades Joe Outfielder to Team B for a future 6th round pick (next year's draft). Why does Yahoo require that Team A include a draft pick? I recognize that Team A will have more draft picks than roster slots and that Team B will come up one draft pick short next spring.

    With that established, why not "freeze" Team A's final pick due to a full roster just like Yahoo does during the season? Why not send…

  6. Missing mock draft report card and results

    I did a mock draft last night 4 March 2018 and did not receive the mock draft results nor is the mock draft showing up in the mock draft report card. Please fix this issue, it is not the first time this has happened.

  7. Allow Slow Drafts

    Please add the capability for slow drafts. All you would have to do is up the draft pick time possibility all the way to 24 hours. CBS' website lets you do this and it's great for slow drafts. I see no reason why you can't do it as well...

  9. Immediate payment option for private cash leagues

    When setting up a league as a cash contest, the commissioner is the only person required to pay immediately. Anyone else who joins can choose to pay now or pay later. There needs to be an option to require immediate payment when joining. It causes a lot of headaches with having to remove teams who haven’t paid and hoping to find enough players to fill those spots. I know that you can set a deadline for before the draft, but then if not everyone pays Yahoo just resets the league as a free contest.

    Provide an option for Autodraft teams to opt out of being placed in Live draft leagues in order to fill. If we wanted to be in a Live draft, we would have joined one.

  13. If you want to kill free Yahoo auction leagues, don't offer them, instead of making them impossible to fill

    I've had 4 drafts cancelled now because a conventional rotisserie auction league doesn't fill. There used to be functionality that allowed visibility to fill in leagues that were just short of teams, even up to 45 minutes before drafts. Now draft windows disappear two hours early, almost guaranteeing leagues will never fill when people try to join a new league as a fallback after a cancelled draft.

  14. People NEED to be able to set a player's pre-draft value to $0 in auctions leagues.

    If a player gets hurt in Spring Training (or you mistakenly assign a non-zero value to a worthless player), you should be able to set his pre-draft value to $0 to effectively remove him from your list. Forcing people into a minimum of a $1 value after they've edited the original value means that the player could be auto-nominated and drafted in the event the team owner cannot attend the auction.

    In the Snake Draft format, there is an option when pre-ranking players to exclude someone your list entirely, which in essence makes it impossible for that player to be…

    Mock Draft idea

    It would be really cool if Yahoo set up a mock draft, against only computers, with your league's exact settings, keepers, etc.

    Would help owners get a feel for deep/shallow positions.

  17. Awarding draft picks

    The Commissioner should be able to award and remove next year's draft picks from teams, just as they can add/drop current players. Thjs would help if loss of draft picks could be used as a penalty, or if a trade needed to be reinstated in a league which uses vetoes, to push through a vetoed trade that needs to be reinstated involving draft picks. As commish, I can make the players move from team to team, not the draft picks. If teams put the trade back into the system, there will be an additional unnecessary delay for the trade to…

  18. Draft Pick Management - Ability to Remove Keeper Slots from Trade Resources

    So we have been running a keeper league for the past 5-6 years... and as commissioner I keep running into the same issue every year, minor and fixable but this should be an option.

    I should be able to remove the keeper slots from the draft pick(s) pool available for teams to use in trades.

  19. In the draft app, picks occupied by keepers should be indicated on the "upcoming picks" timeline.

    In the draft app, picks occupied by keepers should be indicated on the "upcoming picks" timeline. And when it says "3 picks until your next pick", that should mean 3 actual picks, not 3 picks OR keeps. For instance, if the first pick of the round is on the clock, there is a player being kept at the 2nd spot in the round, and I have the 3rd pick of the round, it should say "You are picking next".

  20. Remove keepers from draft

    Currently when drafting, regardless of where your keepers are, Yahoo shows your draft with no players and an empty team and does not show you keepers until that draft spot is up. Please start the draft by removing the picks already allotted to keepers and place the keepers on the team so we can develop a better draft strategy
