  1. Fantasy baseball roster size

    Dynasty leagues require much more than 30 roster spots. The maximum size should be increased to 60 so that each team can own all of its players and prospects. This should not be a huge tech lift and really is not adding anything new other than changing one aspect. Right now dynasty leagues have to be played on other sites like Fantrax. Making this change would allow Yahoo to gain much more usage from the dynasty community.

    Hi David,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    The default setting for Public/Pro Leagues is continuous and FAB waivers.

    If you would like to have FAB but free agents, you can create a Private League or join a Custom League using the settings you are looking to play with.

    Thanks,

    Hi John,

    Thanks for leaving feedback.

    Payouts have gone out for MLB and would be paid out to the Fantasy Wallet.

    If you believe you should have received a payout and don’t see any funds in your wallet, make sure you are signed into the correct Yahoo account. For further assistance, you can reach out to us at help.yahoo.com.

    Thanks,

  4. Quality Starts visual placement

    Our league is planning to finally make the switch from Wins to Quality Starts for the upcoming Fantasy Baseball season, but we're not fans of the difference in where Quality Starts is currently visually placed on a Yahoo stat line - coming at the end of their numbers, after things such as as ERA/WHIP/K.9.

    It would be great if Yahoo could move them up in the UI, right next to where Wins currently appears - immediately after Innings Pitched, before Saves - so the category setting adjustment isn't as, visually jarring. Would be great to be able to make the…

  6. MLB Post Season You Pick em

    Just like the NCAA Basketball Tournament, but now, with MLB postseason in more of tournament like post season, why not have a similar Pick 'em? Before the Post season begins pick the winners of each match up and then track to see who wins the World Series.

  8. John Gant's appearances on Sept 5 and Sept 8 should have earned him Holds or Yahoo's definition of Holds is misleading

    On Sept 8 Gant entered the game with a 5-2 lead, pitched an inning, and exited the game without giving up the lead.

    On Sept 5 Gant entered the game with a 5-1 lead and runners on 1st and 2nd, with the tying run on deck, pitched 1.1 innings and exited without giving up the lead.

    Neither was counted as a Hold but both are Holds under Yahoo's rules, excerpted below:

    HOLD:
    A hold can be earned by more than one reliever and is credited when the reliever comes into a save situation, records at least 1 out, and gives…

    Hello,

    Thanks for leaving feedback.

    In the two games you have referenced. Gant entered both games in the 5th inning.

    In our game, a save situation is not considered if the pitcher enters the game prior to the 6th inning. So Gant did not meet the criteria for a Hold as he did not enter the game in a save situation.

    Thanks,

  9. Nick Anderson save on Sept. 23

    TB's Nick Anderson should have been given credit for a save on Wednesday, Sept. 23. He entered the game against the Mets with a three-run lead (8-5) and finished the game with the lead in tact.

  11. Allow for a "choice" of season type in your settings.

    Been playing for years!!! And a commissioner. This shorter Baseball season has been really fun as opposed to the loooong grind albeit rewarding to win at the end.

    My out of the box suggestion is to be able chose to Season Type - by "dividing" season into two halves - A Spring and Summer with a 4 Team Playoff ending both. .. If someone wins both Spring and Summer they would be declared Champion of the Year. Otherwise the Winner of each half season would meet in a Season Finale match up for Title. I hope someone likes the idea.…

    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,

  14. 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,

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  20. 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.
