  1. 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…

  2. 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).

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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 ********

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. My ranking to the left of the predraft

    When ranking my players for the draft. How about having MY ranking # to the left of the player, not this abysmal Yahoo ranking? I have no idea how many players I have ranked. If I try and move someone up or down, I have no idea what number I am putting them at without manually counting. If you must put the Yahoo ranking, put it to the right. I just need a simple counter to the left.

  17. 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.

    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.

  19. 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.
