  1. 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.

    Thanks,

  3. 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.

    Thanks,

  4. 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.

  5. 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,

  6. Yahoo support sucks

    Tried contact Yahoo specialist, it says come back later. All day, every day. Tried emailing, I get error that it is on Yahoo end and to try later. All day, every day.
    Problem is I set up league to be 8/10 teams make playoffs, somehow was changed to 4/10 teams by Yahoo. Now I have 4 unhappy teams and no way to contact support.

    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.

    Thanks,

  9. Fantasy Draft - Move multi-position players

    In fantasy drafts (mostly baseball, but others, as well) multipositional players are locked in one position. For example, if I draft Max Muncy (1B, 2B, 3B eligibility) it automatically slots him at first on my draft screen. I'd like to be able to move him to 2B or 3B depending on where I'd like to play him. Keeping him at 1B leads to confusion later in the draft when I may skip drafting a 1B or I do and it's filling up my bench while starting positions are still available.

  10. lineups

    Please try to get box scores, lineups, and statistics. Without these three things, there is zero point to playing and for 4-5 days now you have been failing at getting lineups out, keeping track of statistics, and keeping up box scores. What is the point of playing?

    Hi Jason,

    Thanks for reaching out.

    The issue has been resolved and you should see a green checkmark or red x depending on whether the player is starting or out. The stats should also update as well.

    Thanks,

  14. Replacing IL

    You guys are also having trouble with IL. If a player goes on IL, and the fantasy has spots open, they should be able to replace the player on the roster. This is another thing not happening/working properly right now.

  16. Baumgartner returning to SF Giants Rotation? He's coming off IL and your update report says returning to SF Giants....isn't he on Arizona?

    Longtime players do change teams, so I know your update on "Bums" return says he is coming back to Giants rotation when he plays for the Diamondbacks. Just FYI.

  17. Award Holds uniformly with other sites.

    For some IMO very strange reason Yahoo has chosen to only award holds to pitchers that enter the 6th inning or later. On MLB.Com there is no inning entered requirement. ESPN has no inning entered requirement. On Wikipedia there is no inning entered requirement. With 7 inning games for double headers now only the 6th inning pitcher more or less can get a hold.

    Hi William,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Miguel Castro was traded to the NY Mets and is now in the NL.

    If your league uses the National League (NL) or American League (AL) only setting then any NL or AL player traded to the opposite group will be removed from the affected player pool and added (via waivers) to the new one. The traded player’s stats will show on your team page until he’s been removed. These stats won’t count towards scoring and are cleared in our nightly update.

    Thanks,

  19. I use the Chrome browser. Is that why I cannot capture players and stats and copy into Excel anymore?

    I want to copy player stats into Excel to sort by the different categories for evaluation. I used to be able to do this. Now I cannot. Using Google Chrome.

  20. Punish the REAL GUILTY

    I have been harassed by a man in yahoo fantasy baseball public league 183612. I was quitting on this season and offering to trade some of my team to help out my fellow players. My message went as follows: Giving up on this season. The season is just too weird for fantasy baseball. No time to dedicate to the everyday changes. I'm open to trading with anyone for anyone since I'm bailing out. First come first serve. I will examine and approve trades for the next few days everyday at 11pm pst. Here is the responses I received: From Jason…
