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 opponent.
Example: If I had James scoring 165pts in 3 games, I might be incline to sit James for the week in favor of Harrison Barnes whom might only score 40pts per game, but he's playing in 5 games and would have a total score of 200.
That would make no sense in real life... You would never sit Lebron for Harrison Barnes in any week. If you allow player averages for the week. The score would be Lebron 55 and Harrison 40. If you lineup is 7 players... You teams score for week would be the sum of the averages for your 7 players... Ex. 7 players avg 50pts each would lead to a team score of 350 pts for the week.

As NBA teams continue to adopt the "load management" philosophy, I believe using average stats for any kind of league (we have a weekly head-to-head category league) will become more and more desirable. This is already something we'd love to have in our league. If Yahoo can add this feature, we'd be very grateful.

Make this an option, just how there is an option for Categories One WIn, and Categories total wins..
It can be Point System Total Points and Point System Average Points

Yes Yahoo PLEASE add this. I hate the CBS website and app and I love he Yahoo platform.. but I really enjoy the "Average Points" scoring system and CBS seem to be the only webste to have this feature :(

This is an awesome idea; please make this happen.
This is the best idea yet. Yahoo has long got this wrong. It is NEVER fair to have one team have way more games than another. The average is logical and easy

This should definitely be offered, but in tandem with a minimum games played feature. Otherwise, I could see someone starting a couple stars that go nuts early in the week, and then sitting a lot of players to keep their average high--which somewhat undermines the purpose of this.
Yes a must do, or at least let us set a weekly number of Games Played. We need to even out the two teams games played.

Must have weekly average scoring...Fantrax offers that for free so I will continue to play there unfortunately.
So one week's matchup should override an entire season's performance?
GR is right, it's too grey to be a solid indicator of performance
The plus/minus is not statistically valid. Lets not give it any more power than it already has.
I completely agree with offering this scoring option. It allows for a truer head to head competition. Football is great because it measures one game to one game. Rather than being at the mercy of the number of games, particularly in the playoffs, the team with the best players has the highest likelihood of winning.
