  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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!

  4. 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

  5. For next years football game for a scoring stat can receivers/quarterbacks get points for drawing/throwing a

    A WR should get at least a point for drawing a Pass Interference. A QB can get some fraction of a point. When a PI occurs those positions get robbed of potential points. The league commish should be able to assign a point value based on the yardage length of the PI.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  9. Full Season (Including Playoffs) Total Point Scoring

    When using the head-to-head matchups format, Yahoo stops calculating total points for each team after the the final week of play, before playoffs begin. Since you continue to calculate points for each team when determining who advances in the playoffs, it would be ideal to add those points in the standings, even if it's a different standings screen, so each league can show the total points scored for a full season of games (inclusive of playoffs).

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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....

  14. Fumble 6

    I think there should be a "Fumble 6" option, similar to a "Pick 6". So, if your player fumbles, and that fumble is returned for a touchdown, he gets more negative points.

    Thank you and have a wonderful day.

  15. 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.

  16. DST consistant scoring

    A few years ago I lost on a scoring correction. What happened was I owned the Saints Def. Drew Brees threw an interception, on the INT return there was a fumble and the Saints recovered it. At first my def got the points for the turnover recovery, but it was later corrected. The reason I didn't get the points, per Yahoo, was because my defense was not on the field at the time. I disagreed with the logic, as I felt once the int was thrown the saints become defense-tackle points would go to offensive players back in the day…

  17. 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?

  18. 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!!!!

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
