  2. 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.

  3. Defenses should get points for interception/funble recovery yards returned

    Self Explanatory in the title I think:

    If say the defense recovers the ball as a fumble from the QB but went nowhere with it, , it is currently scored and valued in fantasy as the same as if they recovered the ball but got chased down out of bounds after carrying it 50 yards. That 50 yards should be worth something.

  4. 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.

  5. Dropped Passes

    Most leagues take points away for fumbles. It would be interesting and fun to have a stat category that allows for points to be taken away if a player drops a pass.

  6. 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…

  7. Keep track of Total Points through week 17 for all players.

    Right now, in a head to head league, points are not cumulated once a team is not in the head to head playoffs. There should be a section where total points for the entire season is added. Our league pays out head to head and total points, but with yahoo we had to manually add up some of our player's points.

  8. Split the defensive category into Line, Linebackers, and Defensive Backs.

    Rather than pick one team defense, break defense out into 3 categories: Line, Linebackers, and Defensive Backs. Ex. You could draft Dallas' Defensive Line, Detroit's Linebackers, and Cincinnati's Defensive backs! Some points would translate to all 3 categories, like tackles, but others would be unique to each.

  9. Improve Stat Correction notification

    Last week I got a notification I had won an extremely close contest. Next time I looked, a half point had been deducted and I lost that contest, but no notification was sent to that effect. In such a case, shouldn't a notification be sent to inform you what happened and why?

  10. A more exciting type of Points League

    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…

  11. 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?

  12. Please add PPG to team page

    Points per game is the most important stat in fantasy football and should on full display anywhere stats are visible. Would make trading players a little easier too.

  13. Setting the season length in a Points league

    I am the Commissioner in a Points league. No head-to-head. Whoever has the most total points at the end is champion. I noticed on the head-to-head option you can set the length of your season. So if you wanted the last week of competition to be week 16, you can do that.

    As far as I can tell, in a Points league you cannot set the length of your season. It's 17 weeks, period. However, our league, for example, does not want to play week 17 because many NFL teams are sitting their starters on the final week of the…

  15. 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.

  16. fractional defense yards allowed

    Like ESPN, Yahoo should have a fractional option for defensive yards allowed...simple as that. A lot of people don't like tier defensive points and go to ESPN because of it but I really want to stay with Yahoo.
