  1. Fix all positions

    Yahoo needs to check how many minutes each played in what position and fix all positions to all players, rather then wait for a comment regarding this player or the other.

  3. Weekly start limit per team

    With the vast unpredictability and imbalance in the NBA season schedule, the number of players a certain fantasy team has playing throughout the week can have a very significant impact on the outcome of that week. I think a weekly start limit option needs to be seriously considered. Similar to the weekly start limit for starting pitchers in fantasy baseball. If you set the limit at, let's say, 40 or 42 starts per week, this guarantees that each team will have the same number of players playing for the week, and benching one of their worst players once or twice…

  5. Increase the Number of INJ spots for standard settings

    Players get injured quite frequently. Please consider increasing the number of INJ spots from 2 to 4.

  9. Giannis Antetekounmpo PG/SG

    Giannis Antetekounmpo should have PG/SG eligibility as he did last year. Jason Kidd is notorious for his line up tweeks and Giannis starts at multiple positions throughout the year.

  10. Please add dark background option again

    Since we play this game for hours, it is best using dark background for our eyes. Many big companies including youtube turns to dark background. Please take this into consideration seriously before season begins. Thank you

  11. Need to shorten the fantasy season. "silly season" is frustrating.

    I know there's probably not an easy solution...but being hit by fake injuries,random rest and tanking linups after you spent a whole year trying to build the best team possible is just not fun.
    Fantasy playoff should be a few weeks earlier.

    Hey Samuele, thanks for your feedback. Our product team is investigating more flexible fantasy playoff start times. Stay tuned!

  12. Create a new format of fantasy basketball with starting 5 and subs.

    The drafting and scoring would be similar to a points league, where one game is equal to one week. however, this format would allow you to only start and play 5 players at a time like a real nba game. everyday before the first game tips off, you would be allowed to make substitutions. You can allow leagues/commissioners to set the number of subs allowed per game... or leave it unlimited.. this would require more strategy and making the right picks day to day to win as opposed to whoever has more players in a given week having the edge.

  13. 2 Point Field Goal Percentage

    Our league would like to add 3PT%, but also change FG% to only include 2PT%. That way FG% doesn't include 3 pointers as well. Other fantasy platforms offer this.

  14. Wing Flex Spot and Big Man Flex Spot

    In Yahoo Fantasy Basketball we have the G position (which means PG/SG flex) and the F position (which means SF/PF flex), but we don't have the wing position (SG/SF flex) or the big man position (PF/C flex). I run a 16 team league with 8 active roster spots per team, and I would love if our 8-man active lineup could be a traditional starting 5 plus an additional PG, a wing, and a big man. Is there any way you could make this happen for me?

  15. SG/SF and PF/C position options in custom leagues

    I would like the option in leagues that I run to have SG/SF and PF/C slots. There is already a guard slot for PG/SG and a forward slot for SF/PF so why not make the other 2 possible? The NBA today has a lot of "wing players" and "bigs" which is basically players that play SG/SF and PF/C respectively. Adding these position slots would allow commissioners to make their league rosters more flexible which would reflect the nba game today.

  17. Commissioners help & more....

    1. Give the Commissioner a button (Start Active Players) so they can keep dead teams competitive while replacing dead managers.
    2. On team page and waiver wire, put average points per game as the 1st column . We can look at individual stats if needed. Scrolling back and forth on a pad or cell phone is tedious and makes you dizzy.

  20. AUTOSET LINEUPS: Help protect leagues against inactive managers

    Idea:
    Yahoo should add a setting under League Settings which can be turned on or off to have lineups automatically set 5 minutes before the first games that evening, if the manager has not filled his lineups.
    I know this could create a problem if a manager is strategically leaving a player on his bench (say, to preserve a narrow FG% win or something)
    However, this would instantly solve the problem of the seemingly unavoidable inactive managers who stop setting their lineups.
    Yahoo could write the code so that it either bases the auto-set feature on o-rank, or season rank,…
