  1. Totally customizable playoff formats

    There absolutely needs to be the ability to create a totally customized playoff format. Our league went to 14 teams this year and it created several issues with playoffs, due to the limited options that yahoo allows. It shouldn't be very hard to allow commissioners total control for playoff brackets, allowing byes where an odd number of teams enter or continue in the playoffs. Other sites have these options and yahoo needs to keep up. I know we're not the only ones who are a bit salty about this. We want to come back next year, but you need to…

    • Automatic Substitutions Option for Players Ruled Out Prior to Game Start Time

      An option that allows the team manager to auto sub for players ruled 'O' on game day only. Manager would create a 'prioritized sub list' for each position based on players already on the bench.

      Example: If on game day a WR is ruled Out, the system would select the next WR on the auto sub list based on the team manager's sub order.

      This makes it easier for managers to have contingencies for late scratches where the manager cannot practically access the FF app (driving, at work, running a 5K, especially for managers running a 5K)

      The option could…

      • Make Denard Robinson a RB Only

        Clearly, Denard Robinson is used and viewed by the Jaguars as a RB. So, he should be listed as a RB only and not wr/RB for fantasy purposes.

        • Allow Custom Tiebreaker Rules

          There is no reason to be forced to use Yahoo's default rules for determining regular season tiebreakers. Give me the option in my league to allow head to head matchups for teams with identical winning percentages determine their tiebreaker, not their overall points scored. I'm frankly baffled that this is still not an option. Common sense would indicate that if I beat you in the regular season, but we're both 8-5 at the end of the year, I make the playoffs, regardless of what our total points-for are. I understand some don't agree with this, but that's why there should…

          • Please make the team name option more than a 20 character max.

            At least double the character max to 40. I know several people that have had to completely change their team names because of this 20 character limit.

              • Sportsmanship Rules for Private/Custom Leagues

                I propose mirroring the sportsmanship rules, to some extent, currently being utilized in the Public League. Having five impartial league owners, randomly selected by Yahoo, to submit to Yahoo their conclusion for appropriate action Yahoo can implement.

                General: If an owner does not comply with the sportsmanship rules as defined in "Fair play and sportsmanship rules for public leagues", or a league determines that an owner has acted in an unsportsmanlike manner, the league reserves the right to disqualify the owner, void points and/or remove that owner from the league and select a new owner. The resolution will be handled…

                • Any plans to finally start ranking IDP'S next year?

                  I think Yahoo! has been doing fantasy football long enough without ranking IDP's. I play in a IDP league and every time we draft you have to search for the player you want. I use a magazine but to a new owner in my league it is overwhelming. Please take this into consideration.

                  • Strength of Schedule (SOS)

                    For Head-to-Head leagues, under the "Standings", add the Strength of Schedule (SOS) column to show the difficulty or ease of a team's/person's opponent as compared to other teams/persons. This is especially important if teams in a league do not play each other the same number of times.

                    This column may also be used in the future as an alternative for determining which teams would be eligible for playoffs and tiebreakers.

                    The calculation would be SOS = 2(OR)+(OOR) / 3, where OR is the opponents' record, while OOR is the opponents' opponents record.

                    • Year round?

                      I see football has come down now. I believe shortly after the current season ends we should be able to get going on our next season. I need to actively recruit and some people take FOREVER to approve their teams. I started my baseball league on day one and still waiting for someone to approve. I think this would be especially handy for those in keeper leagues.

                      • No trades during the offseason for Dynasty/Keeper leagues??

                        Why have Dynasty / Keeper leagues if you can't make year round trades?

                        Two teams in my Dynasty league have agreed to a trade but cannot execute it because Yahoo has taken away the 'trade' function during the NFL offseason.

                          • Prevent Managers who just dropped a player to waivers from placing FAAB until the player clears waivers.

                            There is no FAAB waiver option that prevents the manager from placing a bid on the player he/she just waived. This absolutely needs to be an option for next year to prevent dropping superstars and picking them up cheap! Is there already a solution for this (other than the uneditable Can't Cut list)?

                            • Additional Roster Positions

                              In order to keep Special Teams relevant, I propose adding two positions:

                              KR = Kick Returner
                              PR = Punt Returner

                              Each NFL team designate a player, usually a wide receiver, slotted on its special team roster. Adding the above two roster positions will allow leagues to utilize the return yards and the return touchdowns into their grand scheme of their football strategy.

                              The above will provide a valuable option for league owners, whereas, some wide receivers and runnings backs may be on the low end of their respective depth chart, but may be on the top end of the special…

                              • Let us draft entire teams for our RB positions instead of individual players due to the injuries and handcuffs at that position.

                                I think that our league should have the option of drafting entire teams at the RB position due to injuries and handcuffs. For example, we could draft individual players at every position, but for the RB position we could draft the Houston Texans, or the New England Patriots. There are a million reasons for this, but my latest example is the fact that I have Jonas Gray and Shane Vereen on my team. The week that Gray scored 4 TD's he was on the bench and I had Vereen in the starting lineup, and he didn't do anything for me.

                                  In Head-to-Head Leagues, the tiebreaker should be Head-to-Head Rules. This can follow the same rules as the NFL:
                                  - Head-to-Head Record
                                  - Record in Division
                                  - Record amongst common opponents (in unbalanced schedule leagues)
                                  - Strength of Victory
                                  - Best Net Points in common games
                                  - Coin Toss

                                    • Think about offering Pro Leagues that are pure points from weeks 1 through 16?

                                      As another option other than just head-to-head with playoffs? So the team that accumulates the most points from weeks 1-16 finishes first instead of having to deal with the randomness of the playoffs. All the scoring values would be the same.

                                      • Locking players after they've played.

                                        There seems to be an issue where you can still drop a player after they've played for the week. An example of this happened this year where someone played a TE on the Sunday night, then after the game, dropped him and picked up a RB and played that RB on the Monday night. The system does lock players from being picked up if they've already played, but does not lock them from being dropped. Effectively, this allowed someone to gain the benefit of playing that player, and then dropping him to get the benefit of a new player.

                                        • playoff odds

                                          you should make a playoff odds column in the standings to see if you have a shot at making the playoffs late in the year.
