  1. New scoring category for next year: (Pts + Reb + Ast) / TO

    This category could help provide a more descriptive indication of a player's fantasy value.

    Thank you Jordan from the fantasy team for the support.

  2. Max games per week option in head-to-head leagues.

    Allow a setting where there can be a maximum number of games played each week in head-to-head matchups.

    This prevents uneven matchups based on volume- especially in deeper leagues- which compromises the competitive strategy of the game.

  3. Add the Option to have Weekly Average Per Player Scoring in Head to Head points.

    Add the Option to have Weekly Average Per Player Scoring in Head to Head points. As well as add the Double Double, Triple Double, and Quadruple Double categories.

    I literally pay $130 every year for my basketball league is CBS Sports because they have these options. Especially the averages...

    Example: Lebron James scores 60, 55, 50 in 3 games for the week. Instead of him having a score of 165pts for the week, his average would be 55pts for the week.

    This eliminates an owner from starting players with more games in a week to get an advantage on their…

  4. Please explain why, as a commissioner, I cannot change roster moves after the games are done, like in football.

    For some unknown reason, as a commissioner in a bball league, I cannot make changes to the other teams lineups, after the games are over, as long as said teams let me know to change them for them, cause they had no chance to do their lineups, now the players are on the bench, and they got no credit for the points. What gives? In yahoo fantasy football I could change players lineups at any time. Please help me. People are complaining.

  5. Please add True Shooting Percentage as a category

    Adding TS% would allow my league to use that instead of using both field goal and free throw percentage. It tells a better story of a player's value and doesn't penalize players that are 65% free throw shooters (in real life I would gladly have a guy that gets to the line a lot and coverts that often, it yields 1.30 points per possession). Doing this would also allow me to get rid of turnovers and still have an odd number of Roto categories which helps for playoffs. (Cats would be TS%, 3s, pts, reb, ast, steals, blocks). Thank you.

  6. Weekly Minutes Limits

    One of the biggest problems in Fantasy Basketball is the NBA's staggered schedule. It's possible during the week for one team to play 2 games, another to play three or sometimes even four games. It's almost impossible to keep up if your opponents players are playing 3 or 4 games, while yours are only playing two or three.

    I've seen some fantasy coaches suggest weekly signing limits - but that's a horrible idea. Especially during the first week and the final week of the season when the schedule is elongated. What I'd like to suggest is some options for Weekly…

  8. Gains and Losses in Roto League Standings.

    HI Yahoo,

    I'm is a Roto league and i tend to check the standings daily and i tend to know in which category i gained and what i lost based off of memory

    However, i think it would be a good idea for you to some how indicate in which categories we gained/loss in the standings daily similar to what is shown in the stattracker. Saves everyone from working it out in your head.

    a simple 'up arrow' or 'down arrow' with 1,2 3 etc... would be nice.

    Thanks

  9. 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.

  11. Get rid of the beta "standings" change. It sucks big time.

  12. Games Played Minimum

    Can you please impose a games played minimum similar to innings pitched minimum in baseball? This would prevent teams from playing 1 guy, benching the rest of his players for the week, then winning fg%, ft%, 3pt% and TO.

    Thank you,
    TK

  13. Basketball roto leagues should be set to 72 games, not 82

    For now, roto leagues are still set to 82 games per position. However, the NBA has a 72-game season this year.

  14. Please help us add WINS category, so that we can draft head coaches at the end of draft! it will make end of draft more interesting!

    Please help us add WINS category, so that we can draft head coaches at the end of draft! it will make end of draft more interesting, and prevent people from exiting drafts so early! I love yahoo fantasy, this is the most important recommendation i've always wanted to say in the last decade!

    yahoo standard roto 5x5
    yahoo stanard roto 5x5 plus coachs (add a Wins category, make end of draft more interesting, people wont be quitting drafts early, it's a win win situation!)

  15. Head to head points

    For all that is holy, please add a Yahoo Pro league that is based on points already. How long is this going to take? CBSSports has done it forever but Yahoo can't? It's literally the only reason I still go to CBS for basketball fantasy still. It doesn't make sense. Roto & category scoring is so boring compared to the points system. Please Yahoo, get it together and add this as an option.

  16. 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

  17. Please allow us to set game limits on daily roster NBA leagues

    IN a daily roster league, you can start someone every day and win categories by simply accumulating the most games. I'd like to be able to cap the amount of games played in a week so that injured players can be sat, but games can't be inordinately accumulated.

  19. Fix player rankings

    When I get on my team's roster page, I like to see who is doing best for the last 14 days, or 7 days, or 30 days. When I call up the stats for these periods, the "current rank" doesn't change with the stats, but just remains the same as the year-to-date rank. This makes it hard to identify who's hot or cold. They have changed in the past.
