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.

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!!

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?

In points head to head league, pichers can help get you a lot of points. It would be great to limit the starts to what you wanted. We are able to limit pick ups, but a team could load up on starters and we want to keep it at ten. Its a feature allowed on other platforms.

Need a “maximum IP” for Head-to-Head Points League or “Start Limit” to prevent excessive steaming.
Yes, good suggestion. Not just needed in H2H points, but H2H category leagues, too. We have a maximum number of SP starts per week (13) but it's basically just the honor system. Your competitors like Fantrax and I think CBS have this ability.

Max IP needs to be implemented. Puts everyone on even footing. You're not simply streaming to win. In H2H pts format you can't steal catagories with having one great start. It all cumulative pts. but when someone has a heavy arm week and they use ALL their pickups on SP's you can't catch them. Please fix!
Having a 2-week championship match-up (and maybe even a 2-week semi-final) negates the advantage of the streaming strategy and makes for a fairer result too less flukes.
