  1. Dynasty League settings

    For dynasty leagues - my league has a 40 man roster and 25 players are on the yahoo website and are scored like a traditional league. The other 15 players are in "minor league" and are owned by the manager but not scored. Is there a way yahoo can give us a minor league option to place and designate these players as owned by a individual manager. It would be awesome if we would be able to move players up and down without waivers. Love yahoo fantasy website and trying to help move it towards helping dynasty leagues. The NA…

  2. New for 2018, you can add players from free agents/waivers directly to your team's DL or NA roster slots

    I hope this can be New for 2018, especially for the Public Leagues. I can think there would be one (1) person that would be against this. Most managers in Publics League, I played with, don't use the DL Slots anyway. The issue is "if this is available for the custom leagues, include the public leagues, also". Thank you!

  3. Please allow players who's games are cancelled to be taken out of starting lineups

    In many cases throughout the baseball season, players will experience weather cancellations. It would be nice to be able to replace a player who's game is cancelled with a bench player that can play so long as the replacement players game hasn't started yet.

  4. maximum games played and innings pitched

    Instead of Max Games Played and Max Innings pitched as a part of league settings to blanket all pitchers and all hitters, please allow for this in Edit Roster Positions under Rosters and Scoring and allow leagues to set tolerances for each position. Catchers never play as much as position players much less 162 games and it would be nice to distinguish between relief pitching and starting with innings limits. I would like an option to allow more innings for utility positions and less for catching.

  5. Weekly Pro Leagues

    I strongly recommend that Yahoo creates Pro Cash Leagues with WEEKLY lineup changes. This is the most widely used setting across other fantasy baseball sites and the average person cannot keep up with the rigors and work involved with daily lineup changes.

    Even the overwhelming majority of custom cash leagues are set for daily lineup changes because that is the default setting that Yahoo creates, and most commissioners who are creating a league overlook this important setting.

  7. Make the "Start Active Players" button move Players marked as Active in for Players marked as Inactive

    Currently, the "Start Active Players" button appears to only take into account if a player has a game scheduled. It does not consider whether or not the players are flagged as either Active (the green tag for "Probable Starter" or "Batting 3rd", for example) or Inactive (the red X for "Not in Starting Lineup"). In should take these into consideration, giving lineup priority first to Active/Green players, then to players with NO tag (so unknown status), then to players with the red X (as a batter not in the starting lineup might still pinch hit). This would especially help with…

  8. 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.

    Hey everyone, thank you for your feedback and another great season of fantasy baseball on Yahoo. Our product and engineering teams are investigating more flexible playoff start/end dates for next season. Stay tuned!

  9. Get rid of the out-dated "Max 20 Characters" for team names. It's not nearly enough to come up with something creative.

    ESPN is WAY better when it comes to creating a team name. Honestly, my whole league wants me to switch to ESPN for this reason alone...and this will probably happen unless this is updated. Seems like a very simple fix to increase to 30-40 to allow for more fun when making team names.

  10. CHANGE THE “7 Minimum Inmings Pitched” rule to 25 or 30. SP are worthless in your leagues.

    Please change the “Minimum 7 Innings Pitched” rule to 25 or 30 Innings. You have all but negated starting pitching with your settings, especially second and third tier pitchers. In addition, you do not force managers to pick their starting pitchers each week. Owvers also pick RP over starters. Moreover, hitters are much more important than pitchers, which is insane. Finally, you will continue to lose players to RTSports and Fantrax if you keep this rule. Please up it to 25 or 30 Minimum Innings Pitched. Thank you

  11. 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…

  12. Allow player sorting by previous year average stats

    There is "total", "std deviation", and "average" options for all other stat categories, except for previous year stats. The previous years' stats is the only category where the "average" option is not available, only "total" and "std deviation".

  13. More flexible playoff sytems

    ideas include:
    - eliminate consolation bracket; once you are eliminated from playoffs, you are locked out just like those teams who miss playoffs and there are no meaningless "consolation" games that no one pays attention to
    - two week championship as an option
    - shorter regular season due to MLB teams shutting down pitchers, resting players, etc. in september. The championships should be wrapped up by time fantasy football rolls around (week one of the NFL should be championship week for fantasy baseball)

  14. 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...

  15. SP and RP search filters in league that only uses the P position

    My league uses the P position for all pitchers, therefore managers can choose their own adventure as far as their team's mixture of starting and relief pitching. However, we are relegated to "All Pitchers" and "Probable" as our only free agent search filters. Why can't we also have search filters for SP and RP?
    We should have the ability to search free agents by starters and relievers since we still play with the stat categories of both type of pitchers.

    Please help us make our free agent searches easier.
    You could do this by keeping the pitchers' SP/RP designation attached…

  17. Active players

    Yahoo needs to make the starting lineups of each team active when the first pitch is thrown and not at the scheduled game time. Too many games are lost when the lineups are activated and then the game is delayed and then postponed after the scheduled start time.

  18. Sunday transactions should count for next week

    My league has weekly transaction limits of 3 per week. Transactions are executed in the middle of the night. If you have reached your limit for the week you can't submit a claim on Sunday, even though the transaction won't be executed until Monday...a different week.

    I have two super easy solutions: 1) Change the time where the transaction limit rolls over to 8am on Sunday. This is after the waivers process from Saturday but still gives time to make a claim for Monday.

    2) Probably the easiest solution is to allow for unlimited claims but only limit the transactions.…

  19. Various Suggestions

    Your game has an unfairness about it and flaw. As it is now, if you have two good RPs, and no SPs in your active Roster, you can easily win three of the Pitching categories (Saves; ERA; and Whip), if you can get a total of 7 appearances from the two RPs in the week, which would occur most of the time if they were good Closers. This does not make SPs that important, and does not make having more SPs in your Active Lineup during the week that helpful, since if they have a bad game, your ERA drops,…

  20. trade problem

    Another team and I made a trade where I gave up two players and he gave up one. He obviously had to drop a player to accept, which he did. A couple days later, and before the trade processed, he picked up another player off the waiver wire. This then voided the trade because he didn't have enough roster space. I think, in this situation, you should be unable to pick up another player if you're agreed to a trade needing the extra roster space and the trade hasn't processed yet. Can this be corrected???
