  1. Make available players available instead of always being on waiver. It is impossile to make a roster change.

    Make players available after the waiver time is up instead of putting them on waivers every day.The waiver time never ends. When I claim a player that i really need, I may or may not get him 3 days later. Once I put in 3 claims at the same time to replace one player and lost all three. Three days later I found out. I could not replace him for another three days. Dumbest rule ever. What idiot came up with this?

    Hello Mel,

    We appreciate your feedback.

    The change was made to the Continuous waivers with FAB last year as this was viewed as the most fair option for our members.

    Thanks,

  2. Several players suddenly not on IL

    This morning I noticed Freddie Freeman, Miguel Sano & Will Smith are no longer on the IL but Julio Tehran is. This is horrible timing because we added an extra roster spot but now I cannot add anyone because it thinks Freeman is not on the IL. This needs to be fixed. Why would Yahoo suddenly make that change when they went on the TEN DAY IL less than SEVEN days ago?

  3. CANCELLATION????????????

    How do you let thousands of people draft, trade spend time and money, knowing full well that this would NOT be a normal season...we all knew that in March..we knew possibly 110, 80, 60 were all possibilities....PLEASE explain your reason. If it is a programming or software issue ..tell us. Cancelling makes absolutely no sense. So now that you cancelled where is the money...some of us have invested hundreds of dollars. The season starts in 2 weeks....FANTRAX is kicking your *** now in fantasy baseball, and they did NOT cancel anything. I have been playing Yahoo for quite some time...you…

  4. IL Helsley the Relief Pitcher for St. Louis. Put the IL in red next to his name.

    Hi George,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Once a player has been publicly identified by their team or the player as having tested positive for Covid, the team will also need to make a move to place the player on the MLB’s Covid IL. Once this has been done, our data provider will confirm and update the player which will then update in our game.

    We have different data providers for injury designations and for the information that is provided in the player card. It is possible to see an update that does not align with the player’s designation due to this.

    Thanks,

    Product Support

  5. Some player on IL but did not update

    https://www.mlb.com/player/ryan-helsley-664854
    According to MLB.com, Ryan Helsley, pitcher of St. Louis Cardinals, is on 10-day IL, since he got COVID-19.
    But he still DTD in yahoo fantasy. Shouldn't you update it soon?

  6. Picking Up Players

    Letting you pilck up a player from the FA without having to wait a extra day when you take an IF player and put him back in the lineup, you have to wait one day to choose a player then another day to get a anyone from the FA. Why the penalty for having put a player in IF

    Hey Steve,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    If you are coming across racist team names and logos, we request that you submit a request for support at help.yahoo.com with a screenshot of the racist logo or name so we can get this escalated to the proper team for further investigation.

  8. Get real

    your fantasy baseball interface is a complete joke so far. incorrect player info, misleading/wrong info posted for players on a daily basis, and having multitudes of players available in the free agent pool that really shouldn't be there, but excluding a guy like Jordan Montgomery who not only already logged a game this year, but has plenty of past experience and should have been part of the player pool from Day 1 of this season. Wake the F up, Yahoo!!!

    Hi Jon,

    Thank you for the feedback.

    Jordan Montgomery is listed as a Pitcher (P) in our game. If your league does not roster this position, then he will not be available in the player pool until he earns a designation that is used by your league. He would need to make 3 starts to earn Starting Pitcher (SP) eligibility and 5 relief appearances to earn Relief Pitcher (RP) eligibility.

    Thanks,

  9. If a team is in quarantine and cannot play for an extended period of time, why aren't these players placed on the COVID-19 IL?

    If a team (cough cough Miami Marlins) is in quarantine and cannot play for an extended period of time, why aren't these players placed on the COVID-19 IL? I'm not dropping Brandon Kintzler to get a pitcher on another team that will eventually have to deal with an outbreak.

    Hi David,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Players will not be designated with the Covid-19 designation unless they are publicly identified as testing positive and missing time due to the virus.

    Hi Sam,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The Continuous and FAAB waiver system was introduced this year into Public Leagues as it was viewed as the most fair method of waivers for our members.

    We will pass your feedback to our product team. If you wish to use a different option for waivers, you do have the option to set up your own league or join a Custom League set up with the wavier system you’re interested in playing with during the season.

    Thanks,

  12. Austin Nola's position designation needs to be changed to include catcher. He is the regular catcher for the Seattle Mariners this year.

    Catcher needs to be added to Austin Nola's position designation. He is the regular catcher for the Seattle Mariners this year. Catcher was his primary position in the minor leagues. He caught several games for the Mariners last year as well as 55 games for the AAA Tacoma Rainiers.

    1 comment  ·  Position Eligibility  ·  Flag idea as inappropriate…  ·  Admin →

    The number of games a player completes determines rookie status or player eligibility.

    Position eligibility – 5 starts or 10 total appearances in a position.

    Use the position eligibility countdown
    The number under each position shows how many games remain until the player is eligible for that position. If an “E” appears in the column, they’re already eligible to play.

    1. Under the “Players” tab, click Position Eligibility.
    2. Type the player’s name into the available field.
    3. Click Search.

  13. I'm unclear as to why a player who debuted (braxton garrett) is not yet available as a free agent in the league I'm in. Can he be added?

    Hi Andrew,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Top prospects and new players are available at different times based on your league’s settings and are subject to your team’s waiver rules.

    “New Players Become Available” setting locks post draft – Neither commissioners nor Yahoo Customer Care are able to edit this post-draft.

    During spring training any player already in our system on a MLB 40-man roster may show as “active” until the regular season begins.

    “As soon as Yahoo adds them” option – Players are available as soon as they’re added to a team’s 40-man roster. While players outside the 25-man roster can’t be used until after September 1st, you can claim your stake early.

    “Wait until called up to the Majors” option – Players won’t be available until they’ve been called up to the Majors and are part of a team’s 25-man roster.

  14. please open the month of July for fantasy baseball drafting this year

    with covid-19 delaying the 2020 baseball season, my fantasy league always holds our live, on-line draft on the final Sunday evening before Opening Day, but Yahoo's system will not allow July on their draft calendar options

    Hey Vincent,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Our engineering team is working to get draft dates available in July. We don’t have an exact date of when new dates will be available but check your league for when they do become available.

  15. PLEASE ALLOW ROSTER CHANGES THE SAME DAY FOR SEASONAL FANTASY BASEBALL, BASKETBALL, HOCKEY SPORTS

    Adding/dropping players should be implemented THE SAME DAY AS THE TRANSACTION (such as ESPN on all other fantasy interfaces) vs. being implemented the next calendar day. As long as a player does not play their game that respective day, I should be able to make necessary line-up changes that same day to maximize my line-up for daily fantasy sports (hockey, baseball, basketball, etc.). This is one thing about Yahoo fantasy I despise and makes me want to transition all of my leagues to ESPN. Please change this.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Public and Pro use the Daily – Today setting in baseball, basketball and hockey for lineup/roster changes so when transactions are processed they happen right away. If you are in a Private League and transactions are reflected the following day, then the league is using Daily – Tomorrow and that is a setting the league commissioner can change.

  17. Last Name Glitch on App

    I've noticed a glitch on the App for Fantasy Baseball where "Jr." is showing up as the last name of the player. For example Ronald Acuna Jr is showing up as "R. Jr" and Vladimir Guerrero Jr is showing up as "V. Jr". Could you please look into having this corrected to include the last name of the player rather than just the Jr.

  18. The "Matchup Rating" for LAA 1B Jared Walsh is for a pitcher

    and has been for as long as I've been checking. Does anybody on the backend preview this before it's posted? There are a finite amount of MLB players - data should be verified by someone at Yahoo. Hope this gets addressed.

  19. Wow. Baseball playoff determination tie-breaker. An absolute joke.

    We have settings for playoff tie-breaker as the head-to-head reg season record. That makes sense... yet the default playoff seeding tie-breaker is The last week’s win percentage???? And this can’t be altered? This is awful. I had two of my best players returning from injury in playoff week one. But now I’m eliminated because of this idiotic setting. This is pretty bad, guys. Wow.

    Hi Anthony,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Head-to-head regular season results are not factored into the regular season tiebreakers in Yahoo Fantasy. The regular season tiebreakers can be found at https://help.yahoo.com/kb/head-to-head-scoring-yahoo-fantasy-sln6212.html.

    The commissioner of a Private League can use their tools to edit the 1st week of the playoffs before the first game begins in that week if the league wants to use their own criteria or a head-to-head criteria.

    Thanks,

    Hi Brian,

    Thank you for reaching out.

    We apologize if the changes in your fantasy league did not keep.

    Unfortunately, since there are less than 2 weeks left in the season, there would be no way to have an 8 team playoff as this requires a 3 week playoff.

    If you do need assistance and can’t reach customer support at help.yahoo.com, you can contact us @YahooFantasyCC on Twitter.
