  1. You can't have championship week occur during the final week of the (real) regular season.

    Seriously. This is not real baseball. Please have championship week done before the final week of the regular season.

  2. Please add the IR+ spot, makes a big difference!

    Hockey has the IR+ spot available for players that are "day to day" or "out", it makes a big difference!

  3. 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…

  4. Combine Roto and H2H

    I would like to see the option to have H2H playoffs in a roto league. I would like the option to choose the playoff format for my league. The goal would be to use roto scoring to determine the top 4-6 teams as a regular season and then play head to head for the final weeks of the season for the playoffs.

  5. Player Pool

    Please add more prospects to the player pool. Keeper leagues often have very deep leagues and having more prospects available would be very beneficial. Players like Wander Franco SS TB is not available, and he is a top 50 prospect.

  6. Add an option to make FAAB dollars available to trade

    Pretty self-explanatory. My league trades FAAB and, as commissioner, I'm in the middle of every trade. It's not a comfortable place to be.

  7. Make searching for players with tilde lettering easier.

    Players with tildes (˜ ) above their names do not appear when searched. This is HIGHLY annoying. Most of us do not have keyboards that add tildes above letters, and it's almost impossible to search for some people. For instance, if an owner were to search for "Alex Rodriguez" in the search bar, there would be no results because of the tilde above the "A" in his first name (Á). Please correct this! It makes searching for players a growing pain in the behind.

  8. Improve pre-draft rankings

    It is very painful right now to manually scroll through the player list searching or the players you want to pre-rank. Why not allow a search bar to type in the player names, which can then be clicked and dragged over. Also, why don't the player ranks on the pre-draft tool follow the rankings on the player bar?

  9. Eliminate Consolation Round. If you miss the playoffs you should be eliminated from making moves and stealing players from real winners.

    Eliminate Consolation Round. If you miss the playoffs you should be eliminated from making moves and stealing players from real winners. Some managers can help other managers by taking a player that can benefit their friend in the playoffs and hurt the integrity of the game. And quite honestly, after playing a full season and not making the Playoffs, why would I or should I keep playing? It doesn't make sense.

  10. Trade that show other manger reviewed offer

    Create a feature that shows when opposing manager views your trade offer.

    Also the ability to add additional comments on that offer, which would allow for negotiation. Kind of like the comments at the end of a blog, but only the 2 managers involved could see them.

  11. In player search, add a "Probable following day" to go along with "Probable" for pitchers.

    Sometimes a manager might want to go ahead and pick up a pitcher who is starting the next day in a same day transactions league. It would be nice to be able to have a drop down option to find all probably pitchers the following day to decide who to pick up.

  12. Extend Team Name from 20 to 25 characters

    Hello,

    I am the co-commissioner of Major League Fantasy Baseball. We here at the MLFB, appreciate the flexibility provided to us courtesy of Yahoo! Sports, and have been doing so since our inaugural season of 2009. We hold our league in the highest of standards, emulating the most personal and real-life experience for our owners and managers alike. It has come to our attention, that a team would like to relocate from Washington to Philadelphia, however this transaction cannot be completed, due to the inability to exceed 20 characters for a team name, and the "Philadelphia Phillies" protrudes that limit.…

  13. 7day, 14day, 30day for Team Stats

    Allow us to see our total team stats the same way we do with individual players with the 7-day, 14-day, 30-day, season option. This way we can track how our teams are performing week by week.

  14. Draft Pick Management - Ability to Remove Keeper Slots from Trade Resources

    So we have been running a keeper league for the past 5-6 years... and as commissioner I keep running into the same issue every year, minor and fixable but this should be an option.

    I should be able to remove the keeper slots from the draft pick(s) pool available for teams to use in trades.

  15. Allow manager to put in waiver claim on a player, even though they were the one who dropped them.

    Sometimes when I drop someone and then during the days he's on waivers, something changes and I may be interested in having the player again. But for some reason, when you drop someone, you're not allowed to make a waiver claim for them, using the standard waiver system. You can make waiver claims in the FAAB system on your own dropped players. So why not in standard waivers, too?

    Pro League Tie Breakers are for whoever does better the last week of the season. That is completely unfair. I tied with a guy for 6th place and he won cause he beat his opponent by more categories than i beat mine for the last week, week 22. Meanwhile i beat him in the regular season 15-5. BY doing this, weeks 1-21 mean absolutely nothing and that week 22 is only thing that matters for tie breaker. Never heard of such an idiotic rule before in my life. Until this changes, i will take my business else where because Yahoo…

  17. 7, 15, and 60 day DL roster positions

    Length-specific DL roster positions should be available at the commissioner's discretion. The rules for the DL should resemble the actual rules for the MLB as much as possible. Including this feature will greatly benefit keeper leagues that have teams wanting to hold on to players that would have been dropped in a non keeper league.

    This feature was suggested last year and accepted this year, but not properly implemented. The players are listed on the correct disabled list, but there is no option to use this new feature as a roster position.

  18. Previous Season Team Stats

    Save the total team stats from previous seasons so that you can go back and see what sort of totals you'd need to achieve to finish in various spots across categories.

    Not sure if it has total stats for Roto Categories since our league is H2H Categories, but it just shows the overall record across each of the categories which isn't helpful.

  19. Team-Stats tracking function

    Allow managers to track their team-stats, just as you would for a player. i.e. Last 7 days, 14 Days, 30 Days, Season Total.

    It would be helpful to see in which areas you are increasing/decreasing.
