  1. Please increase FLEX options

    I have been running multiple leagues on Yahoo for over a decade. My main league is 16 extremely competitive owners. We vote a bottom-four-finisher out each season. We amend our own rules each season to make our game better and better. We can typically implement our own rules using our own tools. We now need Yahoo's help. We want more options for FLEX positions. We need one that will allow owners to choose between: WR/TE/K/DEF. This allows more control for owners and more variety of opposition. Please increase your available choices for FLEX option. This is an easy change and…

    • Trade Veto

      Our league would like to keep managers vote with trade vetoing but would like to have the option to change the 1/3 rule to a higher fixed number such as 6, 7, etc. We would like in our 12 team league to have 6 out of 10 teams not in trade be needed to veto a trade. This option could be provided in commish tools ~ league management and should be locked in for season once draft occurs.

        • 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…

                • Dynasty/keeper league

                  Have a dynasty league feature that allows you earlier access to the league almost all year round and have a maximum of 40-50 players you can have on a roster. Also allow commissioner to edit more rules and deadlines.

                  • 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…

                      Seriously, smack talk is head to head, and then others can add to the conversation. The group smack talk is ********. You don't smack talk everyone at once. You smack talk who you're playing that week, and then others can comment on that smack talk. My league has been on Yahoo for 15 years but I'm actively looking for another place to play if you change this. I've been giving out a best smack talk in our league of around ten years. (Way before you guys added it for awhile) so if you remove it, WE WILL LEAVE YAHOO FANTASY…

                      • 3rd round reversal draft order setting

                        I know that we can fully customize the draft order to our leagues preferences, but there is one draft format option that seems to be gaining popularity. It would be great if Yahoo could have a 1-click setting to be able to set the draft order up for this.

                        Here is how it works.
                        (ill use a 12 team league for simplicity)
                        Rounds 1-2 are serpentine, round 3 switches then continues serpentine until the end
                        So #1 overall picks: 1.01, 2.12, 3.12, 4.01, 5.12, 6.01 etc...
                        And #12 overall picks: 1.12, 2.01, 3.01, 4.12, 5.01, 6.12 etc...

                        • This isn't an action item but does anyone have any idea how to motivate people to click the link to accept their team?

                          I don't see how yahoo could make it easier than opening an email and clicking the blue box that draws you in. That's it!!! Yet a month in I have 31/44 approved and that was after pulling teeth. I guess my only suggestion I have is to be able to autorenew each year without having to get everyone to click their box, and then just remove them if we need to. This holds up scheduling, etc.

                          • Reserve/Developmental List

                            For keeper leagues it would be cool to be able to have an inactive developmental roster spot or two. Basically at the end of your draft, the league has one or two rounds of picks to pick players to stash for future years. These players can't be used in your active lineup until activated, and once activated, can't be moved back to developmental list. Also you can only have x number of active players on your roster, so to activate someone from this list, you would have to drop a player to make room. For keeper leagues this would give…

                              In years past I would sign up for a casual/autodraft league "to be assigned" until I clicked on "ready to draft". I was able to edit my rankings and see an overview. I don't see an "edit players" section Now all I see is leagues to sign up now. Its a totally different format...I don't want to draft until a week before the season. What happened to the old way which included team logo and a formal signup?

                              • Allow importing of lists (.xls or .csv) directly into the predraft rankings.

                                I believe it would be beneficial and time saving to be able to import our own custom lists into the Pre-draft rankings for our league. Please look into implementing this. The current system with the columns and arrows is a but cumbersome even with the drag-drop functionality. With IDPs and deeper leagues, it can take forever to find players in the list.

                                • 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…

                                    We use a different point structure than other leagues. In our format, we tried to limit the impact of schedule strength, and placed more emphasis on point total (in past year's, the guy with the 2nd most total points in the league has missed the playoffs more than once and we decided to change it because of complaining). So in our league, we have 14 teams. The team with the highest point total gets 14, and the lowest point total gets 1 point. Wins are 4 points each. So if you wiin the first week and get most points, you…

                                    • 2 points for a win 1 point for scoring in the top half of league

                                      If you have 10 teams in your league then you should be able to award the top 5 each week for scoring.

                                      Make 2 points for a win over your opponent and 1 point for taking in the top half of the league. If you just happen to face high score that week and you have the 3rd highest score you will still get a point for taking in the top half.

                                      Each week a team can get 3 points this week help take out the luck of facing the top scores each week.

                                      • Please add drops to the RB and WR.

                                        We have PPR but would also like to have negative points for when a player drops a pass. The league I play in has points for completions and negative for incomplete passes, we have points for every time the rb carries the ball, and we have points for every caught ball. We'd like to incorporate negative points for a dropped pass.

                                        • Allow Auction Draft Nomination Time Limits To be Set For Less Than 30 Seconds

                                          We are a 20-team IDP league that intends to field up to 18 starters each week and have as many as 28 players on each team. We'd like to draft them all. And we think we'd be able to do it if we could just speed things up. We see no need to wait 30 seconds when an inattentive manager is just going to end up having the player at the top of his queue nominated anyway. I can't think of a reason why setting the time limit for 10, 15, or 20 seconds would be a problem. Can we…
