  1. Please fix NBA players positions... (position eligilibty)

    Some thoughts based also on Rotoworld stats...

    MARQUESE CHRISS (PF/C) - He is a full-on hybrid PF/C. He played 49% of his minutes at center, without Chandler or Len next to him...
    ALLEN CRABBE (SG/SF)- He’ll be coming off the bench with a ton of minutes at the two and three.
    JAMYCHAL GREEN (PF/C) - He saw about five minutes at the five and even three minutes at the three.
    WILSON CHANDLER (SG/SF/PF) - Last year, Chandler was expected to play a lot of four, and they did go that route again in the preseason. Coach Mike Malone wants to…

      • Alan Williams position eligibility

        Please add C eligibility for Alan Williams. Rotoworld categorizes him as a center (without PF eligibility), and with the Suns in player-development mode, Williams is playing most of his minutes in place of Alex Len at center.

        • Please add back the "games played" column under the "full standings" page. This is needed for points leagues with a games cap per position

          Please add back the "games played" column under the "full standings" page. This is needed for points leagues with a games cap per position. For example, we use a points league (NBA and MLB) with max games per each position. When analyzing the standings, it is vital that we know exactly how many games the other managers have played. Thank you! This option was present for as long as I can remember, but it disappeared with the new BETA version of the Full Standings page.

          • Please add SG to D'Angelo Russell's position

            According to the latest update on Yahoo, DLo is expected to play off the ball more for the remainder of the season. Can this change be made for the playoffs this week? I will have to bench one guy unless DLo gets to play SG, which he will play more of according to your updates.

            Thanks in advance!

            • Allow trading of Draft picks two seasons into future for Dynasty leagues

              We currently use Yahoo for our Dynasty league and we allow the trading of draft picks two years into the future (in addition to trading draft picks for the upcoming next season).

              It would be amazing if Yahoo could manage this and allow trading of picks for the upcoming two seasons (currently were recording trades for the 2018-19 season manually).

              Thanks

                  • Please make Pro Leagues available when registration opens

                    The 2017-2018 season opens 5 days earlier than the prior season. Have Pro leagues available for all entry fees and dates available as soon as sign ups for fantasy basketball begin. Money is refunded if a league doesn't reach the required 12 managers so why aren't Pro leagues available right away?

                    For the 2016-2017 season, fantasy basketball registration opened well before the first available Pro league draft date which was the first Sunday of October.

                    • Eligibility of 12 teams for Playoff

                      Playoffs are only eligible for 8 teams at maximum. So, I recommend to have an option for our Dynasty League w/ 18 teams as below format if it is possible:

                      12 team playoff (first 4 team have automatic bye & between 5th and 12th positions play against each other) - Taking place during Week 19 or 20

                      Between 13th and 16th position play consolation during that week.

                      In the next week first 4 team will match with the qualifying teams from the matchups btw 5th and 12th spots.

                      [5-12]
                      [6-11]
                      [7-10]
                      [8-9]

                      I think this addition will enable more teams…

                        • Scoring to make fantasy basketball almost as good as fantasy football

                          Instead of the categories that we have all become accustomed to, a point system should be implemented (probably using the values you guys use to rank players). Since not all players play the same amount of games each week, an average of stats per game should be taken. An average of per minute would also work and account for injuries, but injuries aren't accounted for in football.

                          This would also work for baseball

                          • Give Commissioners the Ability to Change Position Eligibility

                            By giving the commissioners the ability to change position eligibility, changes in each league will occur much quicker and be custom to each league. For example, Steph Curry is always placed as a PG/SG, when people in my league agree he should just be a PG. Conversely there are guards out there like Lillard, Lowry, Westbrook, Ty Lawson and many more that have never been given SG eligibility when in fact they have played as SG. Additionally there should be a system that if a manager believes a position eligibly change is needed (ex. taking PF away or adding PF…

                            • Please change Willy Hernangomez from the Knicks to PF/C along with others.

                              Like the 1st ranked suggestion here, i am vouching for an update and a few alterations on player position eligibilities. I contacted Yahoo customer service via e-mail about my concern on this issue, i do not want to reiterate all the points i made so i will just copy paste my conversation.

                              I just personally think that having more position flexibility for certain players that make sense would make fantasy basketball even funner and more competitive. I understand that, for example, Deandre Jordan can only be listed as a Center because that is the only position he is capable of…

                                Hello!
                                It would be great if we could have more than 20 teams in a League.
                                For example, 24 teams would be great.

                                  • trade review days

                                    Trade review day should be shorten. When set to 1day, if a trade is made Thursday at 12pm, it will not get processed till Saturday morning. That's a full 24 hours plus another 12hrs. Thats 36hrs total.

                                    The Trade should be processed the very next day, no matter what.

                                    • Regular Season Tiebreakers Options

                                      Leagues should be allowed to choose what tiebreaker works best for them. Right now Yahoo!s regular season tiebreakers are overly prescriptive, hard to find, and leave an important aspect of the league restricted by yahoo! rules.

                                      Commissioners should be allowed to choose from a menu of tiebreaker options including the current rules, H2H regular season records, total points, or choose from a hierarchy of statistical categories. No matter the options- there should be SOME sort of choice allowed to leagues in this crucial aspect of the game.

                                      • Live scoring beta testing during playoffs? Seriously?

                                        Leave it to Yahoo to force beta testing on users during playoffs. Another unforced error....as if it matters.

                                        • Standings page. Line up the stat columns!

                                          Dudes! Line up the stat columns on the standings page! It's been messy for years! It's so hard to compare charts when they don't line up! And it's been this way since I can remember! But I do like the "live standings". Nice job on that.
                                          LINE UP THE COLUMNS!
