  1. Why does Jordan Montgomery only have a "P" desi

    In the last three years he has appeared in 37 mlb games and 2 minor league games, all but one of the minor league game as starter. Injury should not cause him to lose SP eligibility. He does not even show up as an available player in a league that only has SP and RP positions

    Hi Karl,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Players changing positions can affect how you manage your team. Their positions are determined based on info from the MLB roster and past performance. Once the player has gained eligibility, they won’t lose it even if they don’t make additional appearances in the season.

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

    Position eligibility – 5 starts or 10 total appearances in a position.
    Pitcher eligibility – 3 starts to be a starter, or 5 relief appearances to qualify as a reliever.
    Rookie status – less than 130 at-bats, 50 pitched innings, or 45 days on the active roster for a Major League club during the 25 player limit.

    Since Montgomery only has the P eligibility, he will have to earn SP/RP in leagues that only roster these positions or add the P roster…

  3. My league says the regular season is over. It won't let me change the settings for the playoff date or the start of the regular season.

    My league says the regular season is over each time I try to change the playoff dates. Right now we have no regular season schedule. I try to go in and change it through the league settings but I get this response:

    "You cannot edit the schedule once the regular season is over. (Error #511)"

    What is Error #511? Can someone with Yahoo please take a look at my league and fix this. I had a technician email me today and tell me to change the playoff dates on the settings but it won't let me do that. I doubt…

  4. Return default WAIVER settings to FA waiver position

    Current FAAB process does not move Managers down in waiver position when making uncontested pickup ... Not sure if it impacts contested pickups. Also players are continuously on waivers and never become FA.
    I do see under FAAB pickups can be used on day waiver processes which is great. If you can find a way to combine both Waiver processes would be much better .... make chage to allow Players to become FA and not roster eligable till next day and every waiver pick-up should move you to bottom of waier position.

    Hello John,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    In FAAB waivers, the continual rolling list portion of the waivers is used as a tiebreaker.

    Team managers will only drop down to the bottom of the waiver rank list if two or more teams place the same bid amount on a player and the continual rolling list tiebreaker is used to determine who is awarded the player. So 3 teams bid $5 on a player, the team highest on the list is awarded the player and would then drop to the end of the list, all other teams move up 1 spot. This is the only time the waiver rank is impacted. Otherwise, the team who bids the highest amount is awarded the player.

    Thanks,

    Product Support

  5. FAAB

    Concerning FAAB in pro leagues (horrible idea!) what will the FAAB budget be? Will zero dollar bids be accepted? Playing the wire to its fullest extent is what makes pro leagues enjoyable. Not so sure I will play in any until I learn all of the rules explicitly. Why ruin a great produce anyway?

  6. Please do away with the new waiver budget for roto sports!

    I have been playing fantasy sports over 20 years and it is not a good system. I can't understand how anyone can be happy with this, it isn't enjoyable.

  7. Tie Breaker

    I tied and beat a team head up and finished with the same record. Because he did better than me in the last week he went to the playoffs. Are you kidding me? Customize leagues should be able to set their own tiebreaker rules.

  8. Additions/improvements to filters when viewing players

    Add ab/ip minimum text box and/or a qualifier checkbox to filters on the "players" tab - so viewing players by "rate" stats can exclude guys with 1 or 2 games from clogging all the top spots.

    Hi Peter,

    Thank you for providing feedback!

    In Yahoo Fantasy Baseball, a player must be listed on the official MLB Injury Report and placed on the IL by his respective team to have DL/IL status.

    If you go to http://m.mlb.com/nym/roster and look at the official roster for the Mets, you will see that Wheeler is still listed on the active 25-man roster. He therefore has not yet met the criteria to have IL status.

    Thank you,

  10. Bring back notifications and liking other messages in the Fantasy App Chat

    The ‘update’ that was done to chat is horrible. Removed the ability to be notified of new messages. Also removed the ability to ‘like’ another users message. Both of these are great features and need to be added back into the app. Notifications are necessary.

    Hi Fran,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    You can see criteria for a hold for Yahoo Fantasy at https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN6910.html.

    One of the criteria include the pitcher coming into a hold situation. A hold situation is not considered if the pitcher comes into the game before the 6th inning of a game. Clippard came into the game on the 17th in the 5th inning and therefore would not meet the criteria for a hold in fantasy scoring.

    Thanks,

    When a game is suspended, the stats for the affected players are retroactively applied once play resumes by using stat corrections. Since stat corrections are only processed on Mondays there may be a posting delay.

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

    Chop chop! iL the guy already since you updated his card saying he has Covid-19. Let’s move on this. Wasting time helps now one trying to make a pickup.

    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,

  19. 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?

  20. 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
