Scoring - Maximum Innings Pitched option for Head-to-head leagues
Requests to add maximum innings pitched requirements for H2H leagues. Currently, this feature isn't supported in H2H leagues.

Needs to happen!

100%. Leagues should have this option. If leagues do not want to use a maximum, they should not be forced to...but for leagues that want it, there has to be a way to implement it. Other sites have this availability, why doesn’t Yahoo!?

In any format, I'd like to set a RANGE of IP's. 30 to 40 or so would be perfect.

I just moved my league to Yahoo this year after being at ESPN for 10 years and Fantrax last year. Espn was too basic with limited features and Fantrax was too complex for many in my league. However, in each platform we were able to use start limits to curb streaming and stashing SPs. It's very surprising to see this option isn't available in H2H-Points formats. It seems pretty basic- even ESPN offers it.
It's also disappointing that this thread has been open for 3 years with members pleading for this option and it has yet to be addressed.
Having a Minimum IP promotes streaming and forces commissioners to set roster limits and/or waiver limits, which has never been something we've wanted to use. As long as all active slots are filled an owner should be able to construct their team however they want.
I fear that the Min IP will have a negative impact on the quality of our league.
Please consider adding the start limit option to h2h points formats, and as soon as possible. It truly impacts the quality of your product.
why would you want to limit the way teams try to win? It's all strategy. Some have all their bench players as batters, some have none or just one. Some like to add and drop pitchers hoping for wins and k's. Sometimes it costs whip and era because most the available pitchers to claim aren't very good. It's like baseball making the shift illegal. Why? If it helps to win because a player can't hit to the opposite field, why penalize the defense?

There is already a minimum innings pitched limit per week. Adding a maximum limit shouldn’t be too hard to add.
Our league has had to limit weekly transactions to curb streaming. But it sucks when you have to replace an injured hitter and can’t because you’re out of weekly transactions due to a rule only made to address pitching.

Y'all this needs to happen for 2020.

Have not read all the comments, but you can limit IP. Seems like a imperfect but not worthless option right there.
A THOUSAND times this for private leagues too! PLEASE!!
Josh Burkhart commented
I agree it should be an option for leagues that wish to have it. Leagues that do not want it can set it at like 120 or something per week. Leagues that do want it can set wherever lower. It compares start to start more closely in weekly leagues rather than comparing who accumulated the most counting stats.
come on already

There needs to be an option for a maximum innings pitched. Too many teams in my H2H league are just streaming pitchers for volume to snag a couple pitching categories. Having a maximum innings pitched option there would be good as it would keep everyone on an even playing field.

..i implement streaming, since it's a part of the Fantasy GAME we
play, but i can definitely see how folks who don't like the tactic
would benefit from a Max IP setting..
..that said, be prepared for highly increased prime SP demand at
the top end of the Draft, eh?..
..personally, i feel that streaming SPs encourages (or awards)
more active owners..plus, it's an option open to all, so as more
owners implement the strategy, there are fewer viable SP to
meet demand, thereby reducing the impact of a few owners
who "take advantage" (not really, since it's built into the GAME)
..still, a Max IP could help diminish the practice, as well as
providing Y!FLB Managers the opportunity to recover from a
disasterous outing by one of their primo starters..
..if you consider 7 Starters per week, averaging 6 IP (maybe
5?..those are setting the Commish should be able to set),
as well as considering RP activity, i'd think something like
60 Max IP would be reasonable..and (pls!) make it adjustable
by the Commish, as they see fit..
not for- or against-, but a decent change to permit>>

RPs would havemore value if starts were limited, great idea
Let's go yahoo...
"Streaming Pitchers" is a valid strategy!! If you are playing a team "inflating" their K and W why are you unable to "reciprocate"? All teams should have the exact number of transactions allowed per week. Sorry but "Maximum innings pitched...." comment is just dumb.
Thids needs to be added ASAP. It should be easy to do and should've already been done. Come On!!!!!!!!
I’ve been waiting for this feature for years. Streaming is dumb imo. If you like streaming, great. But our entire league hates it and as of now, we have to govern it by the honor system because Yahoo refuses to add a simple starts/week feature.
where the vote against button?
