  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. Consolation Bracket

    In our (12 team) league, we punish the last place team. Besides that, positions 7-11 don't really matter. Can we get the option to make the consolation bracket (or losers bracket) determine the last place team? Something that would make the losers advance? The champion and the loser will be determined the same week.

  3. Decimal point scoring for kickers

    Please allow decimal point scoring for kickers. If a 39-yd rush is awarded more than a 31-yd rush, the same should be true for kicks. At least make this an option for commissioners.

  4. Consolation Playoffs for leagues with 8 team playoffs.

    I can only set the commish tools to allow for a consolation round if the playoffs are set for 6 players? This is the league's first year on yahoo and this is throwing our members into fits as this has impact on how we set our next year's draft order. Is there any way to have this added in? On a semi-urgent basis (insert concerned looking commish emoji here)

  5. 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

  6. Optional "Bye-Week" Roster Slot

    Proposing a "bye week" roster slot that works like an IR slot.

    Players would only be eligible for this slot when they're on a bye week and would have to come off upon completion of the bye week. This frees up a roster spot for the user.

    Reason: Having to burn a roster or potentially even drop someone because they're on a bye isn't an objectively good thing and should be optional - bye weeks can penalize you for having too many good bench players and cause an unpleasant experience. There should be an option to stash bye week players…

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

    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!

  15. Please allow waivers by lottery

    I think it would be great if you waiver claims could be resolved by lottery instead of position/ranking.

    This would allow everyone to place waiver claims with no cost.

    This would eliminate any need for people to wake up early the next morning to grab free agents who weren't important enough to waste waiver position, since there was no cost to begin with.

  16. Allow commissioner customization EVERY week of playoffs

    I have Toilet Bowl brackets for both leagues I'm in. The loser advances each week instead of the winner. Loser of the final game "wins" the toilet bowl trophy. Yahoo only allows the winner to advance, so the managers are required to email me their rosters. I'm glad I can customize the 1st week now, but why can't Yahoo allow customization during the entire playoffs so I can edit who advances each week.

  17. Custom scoring option for Fake FG and Fake Punt TD on Def/Special Teams

    My league believes a Def should get the option to get 6 pts for a fake FG or Punt that goes for a TD. The option should be given as it makes those plays much more meaningful and it happens when. SPECIAL TEAMS units are on the field.

  18. New Skill Level section shows inaccurate info

    Today I noticed the new Skill Level that replaced the Smack Talk section on the My Team page. I'm not sure where it is pulling the information from but it is 100% false, not even close to being accurate. I have played in the same league that I created in 2003 which makes its inaccuracy even more surprising and confusing. It says I have managed 15 teams, which is true including this season, with a lifetime record of 68-54-0 with 4 trophies won (I assume that means all trophies not just Gold?). I just went through and checked and my…

  19. 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!

  20. 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.
