  1. 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…

  2. support full/real keeper functionality

    Yahoo should start actually supporting keeper functionality, where you can track rosters, years kept, salaries, etc., and can set how many years players can be kept, salary bumps, etc. CBS has been doing this for about 10 years already so it's very achievable technologically.

    Forcing commissioners to enter (and calculate) all keeper info by hand isn't actually supporting keeper leagues - what Yahoo calls "Keeper Leagues" is really "recurring leagues", in which nothing other than team names and league settings are saved.

  3. Create a new auction format like your waiver feature in auction leagues; Player gets nominated and all GM's have 10 seconds to make a blind

    Create a new auction draft format...player gets nominated, all GM's have 10 seconds to make a blind bid...highest bid wins and is announced by computer within 5 seconds. Could auction 3-4 players per minute with this.

    Yahoo already uses this on waivers, so technology is there. This format would drastically speed up time of auction drafts.

  4. Allow player for future draft pick trades (without the balancing draft pick)

    Let me set this up. Draft is 25 rounds. Most teams have 10 keepers, so most teams have 15 picks.

    Next--- Team A trades Joe Outfielder to Team B for a future 6th round pick (next year's draft). Why does Yahoo require that Team A include a draft pick? I recognize that Team A will have more draft picks than roster slots and that Team B will come up one draft pick short next spring.

    With that established, why not "freeze" Team A's final pick due to a full roster just like Yahoo does during the season? Why not send…

  5. Make a change to pre-rank settings to allow you to designate a position to be drafted in a specific round.

    Allow the ability to select what position you want drafted in a particular round when you pre-rank players and have to auto-draft.

  6. Missing mock draft report card and results

    I did a mock draft last night 4 March 2018 and did not receive the mock draft results nor is the mock draft showing up in the mock draft report card. Please fix this issue, it is not the first time this has happened.

  7. Allow Slow Drafts

    Please add the capability for slow drafts. All you would have to do is up the draft pick time possibility all the way to 24 hours. CBS' website lets you do this and it's great for slow drafts. I see no reason why you can't do it as well...

  9. Immediate payment option for private cash leagues

    When setting up a league as a cash contest, the commissioner is the only person required to pay immediately. Anyone else who joins can choose to pay now or pay later. There needs to be an option to require immediate payment when joining. It causes a lot of headaches with having to remove teams who haven’t paid and hoping to find enough players to fill those spots. I know that you can set a deadline for before the draft, but then if not everyone pays Yahoo just resets the league as a free contest.

  10. 14 Team Mock Drafts!

    There needs to be 14 team mock drafts available. I have had a 14 team league since 2008 and can't believe Yahoo! still doesn't offer a mock draft bigger than 12 teams. I need a 14 team mock draft to prepare! Let's do it.

  11. Provide an option for Autodraft teams to opt out of being placed in Live draft leagues in order to fill

  12. Allow teams to draft more players than there are position spots for

    Since trading draft picks is allowed sometimes a team will have more picks than position spots. It would be nice if Yahoo allowed this to happen especially since you could draft some players that will start the season on the DL and you can put them in this spot. In the past on other site this was allowed and each team just needed to have a legal roster once the season started to gain points.

  16. If you want to kill free Yahoo auction leagues, don't offer them, instead of making them impossible to fill

    I've had 4 drafts cancelled now because a conventional rotisserie auction league doesn't fill. There used to be functionality that allowed visibility to fill in leagues that were just short of teams, even up to 45 minutes before drafts. Now draft windows disappear two hours early, almost guaranteeing leagues will never fill when people try to join a new league as a fallback after a cancelled draft.

  17. People NEED to be able to set a player's pre-draft value to $0 in auctions leagues.

    If a player gets hurt in Spring Training (or you mistakenly assign a non-zero value to a worthless player), you should be able to set his pre-draft value to $0 to effectively remove him from your list. Forcing people into a minimum of a $1 value after they've edited the original value means that the player could be auto-nominated and drafted in the event the team owner cannot attend the auction.

    In the Snake Draft format, there is an option when pre-ranking players to exclude someone your list entirely, which in essence makes it impossible for that player to be…

    Mock Draft idea

    It would be really cool if Yahoo set up a mock draft, against only computers, with your league's exact settings, keepers, etc.

    Would help owners get a feel for deep/shallow positions.

  20. Putting in draft results

    Can you please make hide drafted players the default setting instead of having to check the box everytime I go to the page. I'm sure plenty of leagues do slow drafts, and have to go to the page multiple times. Also can you please make it so that if I leave off in the middle of round 4, when I go back and put new picks in it goes back to Round 4 instead of what an individual teams' picks have been. I have to click the Round tab, then round 4 then click the box to hide drafted players.…
