How can we make Fantasy Baseball better?

Allow player swap once a game is PPD

Once a game is PPD, if there are bench players available that can be swapped due to start times being later, this should absolutely be implemented. Feels like a large miss and something that could be easily changed.

    not only to provide this rule but also you can make changes add/drop before the games that day have started. When you add/drop it applies to the next day.

    PPD game players should just be allowed to be switch out, however since rosters lock at the beginning of the FIRST game of each day (daily leagues), it wouldn't matter because that player would already be locked.

    Yahoo must first make all players moveable until their individual game starts. Works just fine in Fantasy Football why can't it work for Baseball?!?!?

    Side Note... I've asked for this at least the last 2 years, got some small following, and then just simply died.

    agree. players should be able to be swapped if game is PPD and there are bench players yet to play

    I agree. Once a game is PPD, if there are bench players available that can be swapped due to start times being later, this should absolutely be implemented.

    I benefit from this every single season and would not mind if Yahoo would even the playing field by making this happen. But who are we kidding, the only thing that Yahoo updates and makes better in Fantasy are the ways they can make money off of us.Don't hold your breath for any real changes because they suck

    And once you figure out how to code this PPD change, you can use that code block as the basis for separating games of a doubleheader so managers can set a unique lineup for each. Welcome to OOP, Yahoo!

    Hey guys; this is Yahoo. They are NEVER up to par regarding updates. Check this out.... today, Tuesday July 24, there is a green dot next to Shane Beiber, indicating he is the starter today, yet, if you read the comments on him, he is being optioned to assignment last week. Get it right, willya?

    Absolutely agree. The postponements often come too late make the change even when I'm sitting at the computer! It would be great to create another designation w/the PPD that lets us swap out a player. Rain has played a big role this early season and has really skewed the results.

    Also, some people don't check their rosters every 15 minutes, due to work, family, religious or any other commitment. Please change it.

    It should be implemented. But it hurts us any time of the season,.

  • eW commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes, we need this. It really kills us early in the season with all the rain outs.

    I agree, we don't play fantasy sports to not have guys playing everyday - why have bench players if u can't swap out on PPD days, it's the only thing really that sucks about Yahoo Fantasy Baseball, not everyone that plays is in the USA, down in Australia we are 12-15hrs time difference, you need to cater for all & your currently not. Apart from that I love fantasy baseball.
