  1. End fantasy baseball playoffs earlier

    Everyone in my league checks out as soon as football starts. Give the commish the option to end the playoffs some time in August. I'm guessing a lot of fantasy baseball people feel this way.

  2. Keepers

    Stop making me go on a computer to select keepers for the season. You should be able to do everything from the mobile app. This applies to all sports

  3. 2 Week Playoff Matchups with Adjustable Schedule

    I would love to see Yahoo allow for 2 week playoff matchups and an adjustable schedule that allows you to end regular season whenever you want. These options are currently available on ESPN. After doing our fantasy baseball on Yahoo since 2006, we switched over to ESPN this season because our managers simply prefer 2 week playoff matchups and how it rewards a "true" winner.

    Especially in a sport like baseball that entails so much randomness, a 1 week matchup at any given time is almost a "crapshoot". Also, allowing for an adjustable schedule would also be a great feature…

  4. Give the option of having a two-week Championship!

    The league commissioner should be able to customize (or at least choose from more options) when the fantasy playoffs begins/ends. Having a two-week championship is an option that every member of our league supports, but we are unable to implement.

  5. Expanded Commish Ohtani/Future 2-Way Player Options

    So we realize you guys decided to make Ohtani 2 separate players. Many people are obviously upset about this (myself included). I understand that either choice will ruffle some feathers, so why not make a commissioner option to treat Ohtani as 1 or 2 players?

    Commissioner Option 1: Treat him as 2 separate players, both take up a roster spot, etc. the way you guys said it would be this year.

    Commissioner Option 2: Have him in the system as 2 players but he would act as 1 player. For example, under this option, pitcher Ohtani and hitter Ohtani only…

  6. Update player photos already

    Yahoo, you need to get on the ball with replacing the headshots of guys who have changed teams. Goldschmidt is still a Diamondback, Puig is still a Dodger, Brantley is still an Indian, Bauers is still a Ray, Encarnacion is still an Indian, and Hand is even still a fricken Padre for Godsake…..and those are just the guys on my one team!

  7. League Draft Board to display on a big screen while drafting on your device.

    When we have a group of guys come over to draft, I'd love to put a league draft board on the big screen while each of us have our own devices to make our draft picks.

    I think it'll help create a better community environment while drafting (and also my 9-year-old son won't be mouth-breathing into my ear while looking over my shoulder while I draft).

  8. Let us re-sort the pre-draft rankings without having to create an entirely new list

    Currently, if you don't like the default pre-draft rankings, you have to basically create an entirely new list in your preferred order by clicking the arrows to add players to the "Preferred" list.

    Why not just allow us to drag-and-drop names from the default list? If I don't want Scherzer at #1 (I mean, seriously Yahoo!?) and a handful of other players, usually pitchers, in weird spots, I shouldn't have to create a whole new list of nearly 300 players.

    Just let me drag Scherzer down to a more reasonable spot and continue to use the default list as is.

  9. Message/Chat Board Needs to Feel Like Social Media Site

    The Message Board has become a waste of space because it's not easily accessible, readable or usable. Posts and comments should be easily scrollable, mobile friendly, and look and feel like Facebook/Instagram/Twitter. Get rid of "topics" and duplicate what the most popular social media sites in the world do to encourage messaging, chatting, and communicating!

  10. Please allow Commish to pause the draft more than 5 times or 15 mins. How about full control?

    ESPN let’s be the Commish pause the draft and start it back up anytime they want. I suggest Yahoo do the same as there is no valid reason to have limited pauses. Unforeseen can things happen and having a simple pause and unpause button would be great. Thanks.

  11. Carry "notes to self" over to the next year.

    I guess i can always go back and copy, but in a keeper league it is much easier just to have them still be there.

  12. More in depth ADP data

    Additional data regarding ADP would be really useful. Things like minimum pick, maximum pick, number of drafts each player has been taken in, and being able to select a date range to view this data. These can be really useful during draft prep.

  13. Yahoo waiver glitch

    Our league has a 3 move maximum per week. By Sunday all of us were out of moves. However, the waivers execute on Monday morning at 3 am (a new week). Some folks in our league were able to put in claims on Sunday for the Monday night pickup. But others got the message that they were out of moves for the week. Please fix this ASAP. It is creating issues in our league. It is an obvious glitch.

  14. Double format

    Why not have the option for a lig to have both formats
    Just click or the standings to check where u stand on both. H2h ligs should have this for an option. All stats are already kept and tallied.
    Why not make it viewable. Whether it counts for yahoo $ logs is to be at your own discretion but #1 in Roto should be recognized in h2h ligs. I also prefer a total moves limit for h2h. I've used 50 in mine for yrs. It's Roto tho

  16. Double the max waiver moves the first "week" of the season.

    First week of fantasy baseball is played over 2 weeks. Yet the max waiver moves stays at 6. Should be at least 10.

  17. Player Pool

    Please add more prospects to the player pool. Keeper leagues often have very deep leagues and having more prospects available would be very beneficial. Players like Wander Franco SS TB is not available, and he is a top 50 prospect.

  18. Random selection of Managers on Draft Day Fantasy Baseball Flawed

    I signed up for two Yahoo Fantasy Public Baseball Leagues.
    Here is the issue,
    1) My first Yahoo Public Baseball league had seven, yes, seven mangers listed as "Diamond or Platinum. I thought this was strange given the chances of top 5 percentile managers assigned to one league.
    2) My second public fantasy baseball league--Yep, there were a total of 6 managers ranked as "Diamond or Platinum--all of them ranked in the "Top 5 percentile of mangers."
    Statistically this is not fair ! Not only for the six or seven managers participating that are ranked high...but what about the managers…
