Daily/Weekly Lineup Combo Option
I would love if Yahoo! Would give an option to select a certain amount of players per week, and not just daily or weekly. My rationale is this:
I look at the playoffs, and I have every single rostered player playing Monday, and zero players going Tues and Thurs. I have no chance to win any bulk stat categories that week with that many holes in my lineup. This has caused the "Plug and play" strategy in our league which sucks.
My proposal: You get to play 40 players per week. 7 PGs per week max, 7 SG per week max, etc. That way you can play 12 guys on Monday, and zero on tuesday. This would make up for the discrepancy that happens in daily leagues when teams have a distinct advantage having more players on a given date.
Could Yahoo! Please look into this 3rd lineup option???

This sounded ridiculous at first, but I see the benefits of it now after thinking about it.
No harm to have it as an option, anyway.
I like this option. Basketball is unique in that a good/bad week in terms of schedules can either make you the heavy favorite or *********. Annoying in the regular season, devastating in the playoffs. It gives you the fairness of weekly lineups while giving you flexibility should someone get injured on a monday or tuesday.

Horrible idea for the head-to-head format. You want to play rotisserie.

NO! Just because you can't compete doesnt mean you change the rules.
I like this idea - it is a hybrid between weekly and daily lineups. Provides the flexibility of the daily lineup, but has a weekly restriction so you are not rewarding teams to pick-up and plug players to gain a roster advantage.
I like this idea - it has been a problem in our league with players gaining an advantage by having sub-par players that are easily dropped and picked up on off days. I realize it is part of the strategy to make balanced lineups each week and we can regulate the weekly roster moves; but it still doesn't fully address being down 5,6,7 players throughout the week. We could switch to the weekly lineup option to avoid this problem, but the whole league likes having the flexibility of daily lineups. This sounds like a nice hybrid option to get the best of both worlds.

Our league lineup is: PG, SG, F, F, C, Util so with the 6 roster spots. To make it clean, let's say the number is 42 (that's 6x7 6 roster spots, 7 days)
42 Players MAX per week:
14 F max
7 C max
7 util max
