  1. Would love to see football with rotisserie option instead of just head to head.

    Rotisserie scoring is where you play everyone in your league every week. Like highest scoring would be 9-0 and last would be 0-9 in a ten person league. I have had a brutal year where iv scored the second most but have had the most scored against me.

  2. During Live Scoring, it would be nice if you could see how many points each team has scored during the week.

    Right now, you can only see how many points each team has scored each day or for the whole year. I would like to be able to see how many points each team has scored each week and maybe even sort by points scored during the week.

  3. 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

  4. Kicker's Lives Matter - fractional points and 60+ yard fgs

    It is silly that every other player in fantasy score points using the decimal system. A 49 yard field goal should net a kicker 4.9 points. And it's blasphemous that the kicker cloud nine that is a 60 yard field goal does not net 6 points. When will this nation realize that Kickers too are real people and their lives/points matter. Let's work together to make these necessary changes to give Kickers the rights they have always deserved.

    Problem: Kickers are unfairly discriminated against via yards/points.

    Solution: All field goals are a minimum of 3 points, and all subsequent yards…

  5. Head to head vs. each team in league

    Provide an additional head-to-head option where you play against each time in the league, if you have lowest score you would be 0-9 that week, best score 9-0, etc.

  7. Allow head-to-head leagues the option to designate some weeks as "non head-to-head," decided league-wide by total points.

    I have been in a 12-team league for over a decade. We want to abolish divisions, but keep the 13-week regular season schedule balanced. So instead of each team playing two opponents twice, which is ideal for four divisions, we want to designate two weeks of the regular season that are decided by total points rules, with the top half of the league getting a win and the bottom half of the league getting a loss. That way there are 11 weeks where you play each team once, and two weeks where no one can risk an "unlucky" match-up. Is…

  8. Fractional scoring for field goals, awarding points for the precise yardage of each FG.

    Each field goal kicked would yield the precise number points for the yardage. Example: a 36 yard field goal would be worth 3.6 points; a 66 yard field goal would be worth 6.6.

    This would be very, very easy to implement. And all commissioners could be given the option to utilize fractional scoring or the old system.

  9. PPR based on catch:target ratio

    Receivers that are more reliable targets should be rewarded over those who are getting constant looks with less receptions.

    How it looks in practice:

    if a receiver goes 3/3 receptions over targets, they should get an additional 3pts (3/3 * 3)

    if the receiver goes 3/6 receptions over targets, they would get an additional 1.5 pts (3/6 * 3)

    Without such scoring, the targets stat doesn't mean much other than opportunities. Reliable receivers should be rewarded as such

  10. 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…

  11. Victory Points option

    I think yahoo should add a victory points option. The way it works in H2H leagues, you play your H2H matchup and that's a win or a loss. (1-0) then your score is compared to the rest of the league, if you are in the top half of scoring you get another "win" if its the bottom half you get a loss. So every week there is 2 games. So you can be 2-0, 1-1, 0-2, on any given week. This helps reduce the luck of H2H schedules. It's funny to read how I am 6-4 but if I have…

  12. Positional Specific Scoring Options

    As several other posts here have stated, Yahoo does have some great custom scoring options.

    However, In the interest of creating better Equivalent Positional Value, I'd like to see the ability to add position specific scoring options. For instance: the ability to score QB/RB/WR/TE rushing, receiving, and passing yards separately or, more importantly, independent of each other. With such scoring a QB's rushing yards (or any other relevant stat) could be adjusted to be more/less than say the points earned by a RB.

    The thought with having these options would be to create a more balanced scoring system, which would…

  13. 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.

  14. Matchup Change - All Play

    We moved to an All Play format years ago but this is something that has to be tracked manually. We have found this to be the most competitive way to run a league and truly end up with the best teams going to the playoffs. Can we please make this a league option for next season?

  15. DST and/or Kicker designation changes...

    I have long hoped for ways to further customize fantasy leagues to add more interest, intrigue and strategy to the way owners can approach their matchups week to week.

    One idea that I would love to see implemented some day would be for there to be a DSTK position or a DST position with a check box saying "track kicker stats" next to it.

    This simple change could bring about many variables to how commissioners can lock in mandatory Roster positions that will impact how owners approach the draft, trades, waiver moves and setting their starting lineup week to week.

    Hey Rob, thanks very much for your feedback, certainly an interesting idea. I’ll pass it along to our product managers to investigate feasibility. Good luck this season!

  16. New D/ST scoring opportunity. Punts inside the 5.

    We should have the option to award points to D/ST for pinning the offence inside the 5 yard line on a punt.

    The ST stands for special teams, right? Punt returns can count for points, why not punts?

  17. Points bonus for cumulative receiving/ rushing yards

    Our league has bonus qualifiers for receiving yards (at 100/150/200 yards) & rushing yards (at 100/150/200). Would it be possible to create a bonus qualifier for cumulative receiving/rushing yards? i.e. a running back has 50 receiving yards and 50 rushing yards for a total of 100 total yards, therefore receiving the bonus points.

  19. Make Kickers more exciting by adding scoring elements


    1. Each Touchback. Give them a point. Not a huge play, but it's nice not to worry about the return, as always for any team.


    2. Game-Winning field goal (doubler?) (if is last score resulting in win).


    3. Kicker makes tackle. That could be tough on Yahoo's data collection system, but boy is that a critical play. Kicker probably just saved the team the TD. Worth at least 3-4 points.


    4. Onside Kick Successful. Worth at least as much as a fumble recovery, 3-4 points.

  20. Add 60+ yard field goals as a separate scoring catagory

    Add 60+ yard field goals as a separate scoring category. 60+ is certainly deserving of more points than a 50 yard field goal. why does field goal points stop at 50+ when 60+ yard field goals are possible and quite an elite achievement by a kicker
