  1. Display Plate Appearances in OBP leagues

    In matchups, Yahoo displays the H/AB stat along with the individual match up stats. However, for leagues that use OBP instead of AVG, the H/AB stat is useless. In OBP leagues one needs to know how many Plate Appearances ones players have had, to contextualize the number. I suggest either replacing the H/AB stat with Plate Appearances, or adding it alongside it.

    I have seen numerous requests for this, from twitter (https://twitter.com/Ian_Myers/status/1111697924151488512) to reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/fantasybaseball/comments/b6oad9/deriving_obp_on_yahoo/)

    Please make this stat available, thank you.

  2. Add More NA spots

    NA spots are currently capped at 10. I'd like to see the maximum raised to 15 or 20 to allow keeper/dynasty leagues to have more in-depth minor league possibilities. Yahoo has done a good job of expanding the player pool, but when you can only roster 10 NA, it caps these newly added players usage.

  3. Pre-draft Rankings

    Allow pre-draft rankings to be sorted by xrank in addition to default rankings. It makes no sense that this is not an option. In addition, add a search bar so that you can search for a player instead of having to scroll up and down constantly. The interface on the pre-rank page is barbaric.

  4. message board

    I think previous message board posts made by other users in all Yahoo Fantasy Sports Leagues should be viewable by all members. I noticed that from the seasons 2011 to 2017 I can not view the messages posted by other users. I do not know why this feature was changed but I think for league history purposes it should be made viewable once again, especially for commissioners. If Yahoo Fantasy Sports wants leagues to last for years members should be able to go back and see what other member wrote on the message board, particularly when Yahoo allows us to…

  5. Dynasty team with a minor league of players

    With more dynasty leagues get created with a farm team, I suggest you allow the commish to Lock the farm players so they don't get picked up by other teams. When a manager wants to pick up a farm hand, the commish can either unlock the player or simply add him to the managers roster. This would prevent a lot of headaches.

  6. Add CP (Closing Pitcher) spot

    In points league, often times the RP spot is just used by a starter that has both SP and RP designation and inflates the scoring for the week. I want to be able to use solely closing pitchers in a spot.

  7. Make clear how you determine rookie position eligibility

    Most other fantasy platforms define how they determine rookie position eligibility. For example NFBC determines eligibility by greatest # of plate appearances at position their final minor year. Yahoo! simply guesses based on what position they were drafted at and then defers to MLB player page. MLB player pages are updated by an intern at their convenience, not even by the individual team. Please, an actual policy on how you determine eligibility would be much appreciated. Yahoo! is the most lenient platform when it comes to granting eligibility and yet Nick Senzel is only 3B eligible for who knows what…

  9. Increase the qualifying innings pitched for each team from 7 to 20. Just 7 innings per week per team is way to small.

    We all have about 4-5 (SP)pitchers on each team - they can all pitch at least 5 innings - increase the number of innings per week for each team from 7 to whatever,,,, (take the average SP innings per week, and use that number going forward to use instead of 7)

  10. Allow to pick up an "N/A" free agent player and assign him to N/A roster spot

    We should be able to pick up an N/A player and assign him directly to a N/A roster position spot. It sucks that you have to drop a player to make a spot for the N/A player, then move the N/A player to the N/A roster spot, then pick up a different player than the original. You shouldn't have to miss out on a current player to stash away an N/A player.

  11. Allow Commissioners to designate keepers all season

    I'm in the 10th year of my dynasty league. I would like to be able to manually designate players as Keepers throughout the season. Other managers will then be able to see the K next to a keeper to avoid confusion when adding or trading for players. Currently I have to manually maintain a list which is very time consuming.

    Quick example... Managers pick their keepers pre-draft, those players have the "K". We hold draft, all newly drafted players (all keepers by my leagues rules) don't receive K. Mass confusion all season and offseason.

    Thank you!

  12. "Closer" and "Middle Relief"

    I'd like to see an option in private leagues where a reliever can be designated as a "Closer" (or "Closer Relief", "C" or "CR) and a "Middle Reliever" ("MR") as a position.

  13. “Yesterday” Filter option

    In the Filtering of the players available it would be helpful if “yesterday” was an option. Transaction trends is helpful but if you could filter to show the stats of everyone from the day before it would be much easier.

  14. SAME-DAY ADDS IN PUBLIC LEAGUES

    Please, please, please allow same-day adds (or at least the league option) in public leagues (especially money leagues).

    This goes for baseball, basketball and hockey. If people don't like it, have another option. Too many times I am GUESSING if a player is playing the next day. That takes no skill and pure luck.

    Whereas on the same day, if I stay informed and hear a player will not be playing (having a baby, stomach virus, rest, etc), the skill in staying informed and actually being able to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT should be rewarded.

    I understand everyone is on…

  15. Add Player Faces Next to Names

    Your UI is far too outdated. If you play fantasy football on NFL.com, it leaves you for dead. Your site doesn't even offer a face of the player for crying out loud? Are you serious? Yahoo is run by a female and it shows. Adjust your priorities.

    Faces should be added soon. We are waiting on that information from our data providers.

    Thank you for your feedback.

  16. Change your position eligibility requirements

    Your are currently the only fantasy baseball provider in the universe that has Anthony Rizzo 2B eligible in 2018. THE ONLY ONE. If that is not enough to demonstrate you have an issue, I don't know what does.

    Please change your requirements similar to CBS and ESPN and require 20 "games played" at a respective offensive position. 5 "games started" is fine.

  17. Change your story editor

    I don't know who writes the notes that show up when you click the notes box next to the players name but they are very often wrong, for example Mike Clevinger had 12 strikeouts in stats but the notes say he had a career high 11?

  18. I would love to have a new stat category that I can use for my fantasy baseball league. In pitching I would like Wins+ Loses+quality starts.

    Loses + Wins + quality start is good for a complete pitching stat with starters. I was able to create this stat in other league and it is great. This stat can go up and down as your pitchers performance goes.

  19. Please get updated info to users faster

    I see updates on key pitchers from MLB news feeds that are not picked up by your service in time to be of use. This also having an impact on your Matchup ratings. For instance, Joe Musgrove start was moved and Trevor Williams pitched for Pirates on Sunday March 31st, but your Matchup with Reds starters still referenced Musgrove. In addition, the update on Musgrove noted he would be available "out of the bullpen" on Sunday. I see errors re: Matchups at least once or twice each week and this can have an impact on Fantasy lineups.

    Thank you for reporting this issue. We’re currently working on getting these updates to our customers sooner.

    Thank you for your feedback!

  20. Michael Lorenzen for the Reds needs a created batter as well. Just like you have for Ohtani. He’s already played CF this year.

    Michael Lorenzen needs a Utility/OF player as well like you have for Ohtani... He’s already played CF this yr. He’ll hit at least 10 homeruns...
