  1. - points for dropped passes

    Yahoo should add a scoring category for dropped passes. I had Brandon Marshall a few years ago and he dropped a pass that should have been a 25 yard gain. I immediately thought he should lose a point.

  2. 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

  3. Yard bonuses

    Suggest to make bonuses based on tiered points instead of one whole number. I.e. some leagues give 1pt per 10yards and 3pts bonus at 100 yds...instead of a full bonus of 3pts at 100yds, there should be an option to make the bonus 1.2pts for 10yds for anything over 100yds or some user option.

  4. 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.

  6. Is there a way to look at stats for a prior season and get a listing of points scored by individual player only when they were starting?

    Is there a way to look at a team / player / season and get a listing of fantasy points scored by individual players only when they were in the starting lineup of their fantasy team?

  7. 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…

  9. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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).

  16. Negative yardage

    I run a PPR league, I'd like to see it where the player isnt rewarded the point on reception if the play went for negative yards. Negative gains shouldnt be rewarded imo...

    For example Isaiah Crowell at one point in a game had 3 catches for -12 yards. 1.8 pts in the postive for busted plays.

  17. 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…

  18. 0.5 PPR Expert

    A lot of leagues are utilizing 0.5 PPR for a better balance between RB and WR. Yet, the experts on each site only discuss either standard or full PPR scoring. There is a whole untapped market here given that there would be a lot of issues to discuss, starting with draft strategy, roster construction, depth, etc.

  19. Best Ball Flex

    After talking to several people in different leagues on ways to make fantasy football better, one of the things mentioned was having a Flex spot that would be fillet with the highest scoring player not started. So say your league start the 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 K, 1 DST (as an example) you would asign players you want to start every week in those spots, and then there would be the best ball flex that would take the highest non starter on your bench. We felt that it would have more involvement then…
