  1. 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.

    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.

  3. There should be something describing when players go on IL list.

    For example, Masahiro Tanaka was placed on IL by NYY on Tuesday but he's still listed as "Day-to-Day" on rosters. I don't don't know if there's a bug or not but I thought his status should be changed by now.

    Hi Dennis,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Player’s designations are determined by our data provider. Once they update the status it will then update in our game. The statuses for players, including Tanaka, has been updated in baseball leagues.

    Hello Jeffrey,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Players with the Covid-19 designation have been updated and can now be placed in the IL roster spot. We apologize for the delay and appreciate your patience while we got this resolved.

  5. 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.

  6. Import Pre-Draft Rankings

    There should be an easier way to set up your own customized pre-draft rankings. Many of us will have external rankings (i.e. in Excel) that we want to have as our default Yahoo rankings and available for the draft. It would be much more efficient if we could import those rankings. The biggest issue would be making sure those external player rankings tie to a player in Yahoo's database. You could assign a player ID to each player and allow us to export that player list. Then we could adjust the rankings externally (i.e. in Excel, which is much easier…

  7. 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…

  8. Flexible scheduling

    You should really allow any week to be selected for the playoffs to begin. If a league only wants to play through July for instance, they should be able to.

  9. Two teams make the championship matchup

    This would be an option for leagues with two divisions. Let the division champions play the last week for the title. Especially this year with a much shorter schedule it could enhance the regular season. Take a 10 man league with two divisions. Seems like the regular season will be 9 weeks this year. So each team plays their divisional opponent twice and the division champs face off the last week. Yes I realize you don't play half your league, but this emphasizes the importance of winning your division. A good commissioner will put teams in divisions to promote competition…

    Hello John,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Our product team is reviewing all options for baseball including allowing leagues that wish to skip the 2020 shortened season to be able to renew in 2021 with 2019 rosters but no decisions have been made.

    Currently, in order to renew next year, you would need to have a draft in the league with rosters. So you could apply all rosters in an offline draft and remove the option for playoffs in the league. Then you’d have all managers bench their players for the entire season and then those rosters would be present when the league renews in 2021.

    If you do not renew and we are unable to allow leagues to renew with rosters from 2019, managers would have to view their rosters from the 2019 league through their Fantasy Profile and let the commissioner know who they want to keep so those…

  11. Suspend until 2021

    Would like the option for commissioners to suspend keeper leagues until 2021, allowing for 2019 traded draft picks and rosters to carry over to 2021. Our league hasn't drafted yet and we'd like to go into 2021 with everything set how it was for 2020.

  12. Will there be the option to add head-to-head playoffs to a points-only regular season league format this year?

    Will there be the option to add head-to-head playoffs to a points-only regular season league format this year?

    With the season being so short- we would like to do points-only then a 2 week playoff head-to-head style

    Is this a possibility?

    We have a 14 team league (one of the greatest leagues in the USA) and a short season would not be great for head to head but we need to protect the playoffs and crown a true champion.

    Thank you, we anxiously await your feedback on this pressing matter

    Hi James,

    We appreciate your feedback.

    There will not be an option for the commissioner to add head-to-head playoffs in a points only league. Once scoring begins you would need Yahoo to change scoring from points only to head-to-head.

    If you want to hold a 2 week playoff, you could write down the standings of your points only league, contact Yahoo to change to a head-to-head league and then you’d be able to set your seedings and matchups for the playoffs based off the points only standings.

    Thanks,

    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.

    Drafting has been extended through the end of July for baseball. Our team is working to get draft dates available past June 26th through July as soon as possible.

  15. 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

  16. Let us play 2020 fantasy baseball with Strat-o-matic stats!

    Strat-o-matic is playing out this season and there are daily stats. Can we temporarily switch to playing this season, with the teams we've already drafted, with those fake stats? When MLB restarts, we'll revert to real baseball, but in the meantime, it would keep us coming back to Yahoo and give us a ton of good entertainment.

  17. Custom "Can't Cut List"

    Commissioner should be able to create a custom can't cut list for Keeper Leagues. We have custom contract rules with a 2-year committed contract. Players in the 2-year contract cannot be cut however we have no automated way to manage it. Creating the ability to customize your can't cut list would be a great feature to help us manage this.

    Thank you for this feedback. We love hearing new ideas from our members as that helps us keep our platform on the leading edge. I will relay this suggestion to our product team.

  19. Please use an identity verification service that does not require a SSN or DL.

    Other fantasy services such as CBS and Fanball only require users to enter only their basic personal information (i.e., legal name, address, birth date) to be verified as a single user. Requesting a SSN or DL for verification is an unnecessary risk and could potentially lead to identity theft. There are plenty of identity verification services that do not require sensitive personal information.

    Hi Juan,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    In baseball, a player must be listed on the official MLB Injury Report and placed on the IL by his respective team to be eligible for the IL roster spot.
