  1. Please bring Team Slogans back to Yahoo Fantasy Football!

    The combination of a Team Name, Picture and Slogan has given our group of friends countless opportunities to enjoy ourselves over the past 7 years we've been playing on Yahoo. Having a team slogan is very important to us. We much prefer the Yahoo interface to the competition but will have to change providers in order to maintain our fun. Please bring slogans back!

  2. More Roster Spots

    we want to open a league with defensive players, with just 30 roster spots, we cant really do that, we are going to use ESPN instead because they do 40, if it were 40 or 45 spots we would gladly use yahoo instead

    What happened to the image embedding on the message boards? This was a great feature that we used often and it seems to be missing. Is this coming back at some point?

  4. Pre-Draft Rankings

    I have been playing Yahoo Fantasy football for 15 years and I have never had this issue. For some reason our pre-rankings are quarterback heavy with the top 20 pics as QB's. Our point distribution has been the same every year, and this is the first time we have experienced this. Is there a way to have the defualt pre-ranking the same as the AVG draft pick. Has anybody else had this issue? If this is a league issue I think it should be corrected. I would just like to know why this has changed and what I can do…

  5. Duke Johnson should be WR eligible

    Duke Johnson should be WR eligible. Prior to the start of the season the coach said they were going to use him primarily in the passing game. Then week 1 plays all 50 of his snaps at receiver with 0 carries. He should be a WR, they clearly don't view him as an RB since he didn't even take the backup RB snaps. Should make the change.

  6. Transaction Notification

    Please add a notification feature when players are being dropped and/or picked up In my league I am the commissioner and I have set rules that indicate you cannot pick up players before week one. Also after week one you cannot drop a player when you pick them up they must stay on your roster for that week played. This prevents blocking others who want the player and then just drop them before game time. Thank you.

  7. Pre Draft rankings

    Why are the pre-draft rankings to top heavy with QB's? That will make it very difficult with the leagues having auto pick players.

    Thank you all for your feedback! The pre-draft rankings are based on total points projected, hence why QBs are stacked at the top.

    Engineering is working to switch the current pre-draft rankings to match our X-ranks. Will update here once resolved. Thanks again!

  8. Teddy Bridgewater was just switched from "Out" to "Inactive" despite being placed on PUP.

    There is evidently an error in the way you update your injury status. Teddy Bridgewater had been listed as "Out" through the entire off-season until he was put on PUP, and then his status changed to "Inactive" which is normally saved for players not on an active roster.

  9. Exportable draft/team rosters

    I realize that Yahoo cannot anticipate/account for all possible league setups. However, giving us a one-click setting to export (as csv and/or Excel format)
    1) the previous year's draft
    2) end-of-year rosters
    Would cut down on a good bit of manual work that I (and surely other commissioners) have to undertake every season.

    For example, many keeper leagues have a cost associated with each keeper. While there some variations that are automated within the Yahoo management system, there are several that are not:
    1) keepers are kept in the round they were originally drafted
    2) keepers are kept in the…

  10. Punters

    Please add Punters! There are many interesting statistics that we can add to having a punter as an option for a private league that would make it a lot more fun to play! I would be happy to give it a test run for our league and give feedback!

  11. Allow Best Ball Scoring

    Give leagues the ability to use Best Ball Scoring. (Start your optimal lineup) This way you are allowed to set up Draft Only Best Ball leagues. There are other websites that offer them but would enjoy being able to use the Yahoo Fantasy App for that type of league.

  12. OFFICIAL 2016 SMACK TALK PETITION

    Not having smack talk for 2016 has been different. It certainly makes fantasy football players appreciate having smack talk as it is one of the best features of playing. We would like to see smack talk be brought back ASAP!

  13. Message Board degradation of functionality

    The inability to post GIFs or images on the message board this year will force me to move my league to ESPN unless it is urgently addressed.

  14. Improved free agency process

    Currently the waiver wire process requires a choice, we can either run the FAAB process every night and not allow pickups on Sundays before the games, or we can run FAAB once a week but have pickups in a free-for-all format throuhgout the entire week.
    My league (and assume most others) would like an option to run FAAB every night and have add/drops on Sunday morning in case of injury announcements. CBS and many other websites have already implemented this. Yahoo has the best overall interface out there but my league may have to switch if the waiver rules remain…

  15. Add Snaps Played to Stats

    It would be great to get the Snaps Played on Offense / Defense. I get the info from the NFL Gamebooks but it would be a great way to use it with the stats to evaluate NFL players for future fantasy projections.

  18. Allow Football team managers pick a bench player on their roster for each position that automatically gets subbed into the lineup if injury

    Allow Football team managers pick a bench player on their roster for each position that automatically gets subbed into the lineup if the starter gets injured during his real game....so that position can still accumulate points! i.e. QB Aaron Rogers gets injured, then my backup QB gets inserted into my fantasy lineup so i can still get points for that position

  19. Alternative Scoring Format Excluding Arbitrary Schedule (NOT ROTO!!!)

    I would like to see a format of scoring that eliminates the arbitrary schedule. In a 12-team league with playoffs, our league essentially has 13 weeks of head-to-head matchups. The last two weeks are played against previous opponents for the second time. If the arbitrary schedule has selected your team to go against the 'best' teams in the league, you are at a major disadvantage.

    Further, if you put up the second most points in a week, but are pitted against the top overall scorer, your record would be equivalent to the worst-performing team. I don't mind this in sports…

  20. Get rid of amazon add.

    The amazon add is horrible. Pops up all the time can not close it. Sucks you in then have to close every thing to not do their dumb questins for a not so free gift.
    Then start over with in three buttons on page get it again.
    If this does not go away. We will not be returning to yahoo next season.
