  1. On side kick recovery scoring option for Defense/Special Teams

    Have the option to add points for a on-side kick recovery for Special teams as that is an important play if recovered

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. Update Stat corrections in scores the next day....

    I received an email yesterday (Wednesday) that I won week 1 with a recap email and this morning (Thursday) I show that I actually lost. The scoring corrections are fine but don't wait until the the next football week to update the scores and not notify the the two teams involved.

    C'mon man....

  5. 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.

  6. A better Points League format for Fantasy Football

    The Points scoring format could so much better than it is. I have an idea for a truly great alternative to H2H formats.

    It's very similar to the Roto format from fantasy basketball. Instead of H2H matchups, everyone is fighting to be the top scorer every week against everyone else, but you get points based on where you ranked that week. For example, in a 10 team league the highest scorer gets 10 points, 2nd highest gets 9, 3rd highest gets 8, etc. Lowest scorer in a given week gets 1 point. These points determine league standings.

    Overall fantasy totals…

  7. Positional Rankings

    Not having positional rankings dilutes the entire ranking experience. I have never found a time where total rankings are helpful in running my team or managing the waiver wire. As FFL owners, we don't make comparisons between positions, only between players of a particular position. At least consider using both total rankings and positional rankings.

  8. Individual position scoring

    We do 1.5 PPR for TE specifically with other positions being 1 PPR but this had to be done manually. Can we add a feature to change scoring per position?

  9. Defensive scoring

    In our league (Buffalo Bills Backers) we have a system that rewards the defensive team as the following: 200-299 yards allowed gets you 6 pts.; 300-399 gets you 3 pts.; 400-499 gets you 0 pts.; and 500 or more gets you -5 pts. That's fair but it doesn't account for a defensive team which holds an opponent from 0-99 yds., nor 100-199 yds. That's totally unfair. In fact 3 teams in our league last week did just that and weren't rewarded at all!!!!!!! With the above examples of multiples of 3 they should have gotten 9 pts. for 100-199 and…

  10. Best Ball Format

    Allow best ball format leagues which automatically start the highest point players into the starting positions each week.

  11. More options with Type of Scoring

    You need to add an option where the top 5 teams as far as points scored in a give week receive a Win and the bottom 5 teams receive a Loss. You could also add an element where you still go head to head for 1 W/L and then receive another 1 W/L with the top 5 scoring. So if there is a matchup with the 2 lowest scores the teams will end up being 1-1 and 0-2 for the week. Every other site has this I am surprised Yahoo doesn't - please implement!!!!

  12. If the settings do not award points to individual players for Special Teams, they should not be penalized for fumbles.

    Our league does not award points to individual players for special teams, but Yahoo does not differentiate between special teams fumbles and any other fumble. For example, in week of 2017, Jamison Crowder fumbled a punt and was assessed -2.

  13. Change special teams scoring

    Make fumble recoveries and touchdowns an option for special teams. We feel fake punt or fake field goal touchdowns should be special teams. Also a fumbled punt return. Yahoo says that is offense.

  15. Give the Team Defense points for causing the opposing team to punt.

    Give the team defense 1 point for causing the opposing team to punt since it's their job to get the ball back for their own offense.

  16. Passes defended/deflected for Defense/Special Teams scoring setting

    We have the ability to score tackles for a loss. How about adding a setting for Passes defended/deflected for defense/special teams as they have a impact on the game as well

  17. Bring back the projected scoring in red (below projected) or green (above projected).

    Bring back the projected final score. I can't tell if a team is trending up or down and with multiple games occurring Thursday-Monday night, I can't tell if a team is trending towards a loss or a win. The new display sux!

  18. IDP stat corrections

    Please develop a better/quicker system for IDP stat corrections. For example, I gained 13+ points yesterday(Wednesday) from missed IDP stats. What if I had lost by 12 or fewer? I easily could have by that amount of points being unaccounted for. I understand IDP scoring can be difficult but 2 missed forced fumbles and 3 tackles is a bit much.

  19. Two Game Week

    Every week you have a chance to get two wins:


    1. Against your H2H opponents

    2. Your points rank within the league (i.e., 12-team league, top 6 scoring teams get a win, bottom 6 receive a loss)

    This will help mitigate some of the luck inherent in a H2H league, while still allowing the fun and excitement of H2H.
