  1. In leagues without waiver bids, indicate whether or not a player on waivers has a claim.

    When one team or more place a claim on a player that is on waivers, provide indication that the player has a claim. Don't show which team(s) has(have) made the claim, but just that the player has a pending claim on him. This is similar to the MLB waiver process. This could be a simple league option to turn on or off.

  2. Redesign Waiver Priority

    Waiver position should be reset after taking a player off of the Waiver Wire. Players should not be allowed to secure more than one player per round.

  3. Players who have a bye week should not go on waiver

    Players who have a bye week should not go on waiver.

    Example:
    Ronald Jones II is on bye week this week. He is currently a free agent. Since he does not play, he is a free agent until Tuesday morning. But then once Tuesday hits, he becomes a waiver again.

    Why should bye week players get put on waivers again? They didn't play, and didn't have their value affected by the previous week. I am eligible to pick up Ronald Jones all the way through monday night games, but as soon as tuesday morning hits I cannot get him anymore,…

  4. Random waiver times

    allow us to pick a certain waiver time. Otherwise have them very random. The ability for some to get free agents at 3:00 because of a flexible schedule is a advantage for certain teams. your site is great about making things equal..... this is one of the few things that make this site unfair. Just an opinion

  5. Built in Free Agent Period in Continuous Waivers

    Allow the option of a defined free agent period in continuous waivers. This would allow commissioners to set a free agent period on Sunday mornings and prior to MNF kickoff to guard against late injury scratches.

  6. Switch to CBS or ESPN

    Yahoo lacks common sense and intelligence. I have only used Yahoo for the league I run for the last decade and cant wait to switch next year. The waivers process with Yahoo is that of something a 2 year old would leave in their diaper.

    Allowing players not involved in a waiver claim to become a free agent over an hour before claims are processed is shamefully stupid. Teams with claims in are left stuck in limbo and put at a disadvantage while other teams can go in and add/drop all of the other players. Since those with claims don't…

  7. Lock all players until all pending claims are processed

    My entire league was ruined by Yahoo this morning. All players must remain "locked" until all waivers have been processed. This morning, players not involved in a waiver claim became free agents over an hour before ANY claims were processed. Therefore, everyone with a pending claim was stuck in limbo since your transaction is locked until its processed. This is penalizing people who put in waiver claims. Those people don't know if they got the person they wanted or not so they don't know which player they need to get next or which position.

    Furthermore, the people without pending claims…

  9. Transaction Notification

    Please add a notification feature when players are being dropped and/or picked up In my league I am the commissioner and I have set rules that indicate you cannot pick up players before week one. Also after week one you cannot drop a player when you pick them up they must stay on your roster for that week played. This prevents blocking others who want the player and then just drop them before game time. Thank you.

  10. Improved free agency process

    Currently the waiver wire process requires a choice, we can either run the FAAB process every night and not allow pickups on Sundays before the games, or we can run FAAB once a week but have pickups in a free-for-all format throuhgout the entire week.

    My league (and assume most others) would like an option to run FAAB every night and have add/drops on Sunday morning in case of injury announcements. CBS and many other websites have already implemented this. Yahoo has the best overall interface out there but my league may have to switch if the waiver rules remain…

  11. Programmable Waiver Period End Time

    With the Yahoo FFL current restrictions, the waiver period ends on Tuesday at 3:00 AM EST. This means that free agency opens at this time, which is not very convenient for those who don't want to burn their waiver spot for the week, but still want first access to the free agency pool. Can you please make the waiver period end time programmable?

  12. Allow locking bench players after their game begins until waivers begin on Tuesday.

    Bench players whose teams have played may still be dropped, allowing the team to sign player on teams whose games have not begun. At a minimum, there should be an option to disallow dropping such players, and require them to remain on the roster until waivers begin. While my league likes the Yahoo platform, other platforms allow this option, and we hope that Yahoo could allow such a restriction rather than needing to switch platforms.

  13. Reduced Waiver Period for TNF players

    The rigid two-day waiver period for dropped players is annoying on the best days and a HUGE leak when it comes to TNF players.

    Players dropped on Waiver Wire Wednesday should be addable if they are playing Thursday Night Football. Instead they are stuck on the waiver wire until Saturday which really means they can't be added until the following week.

    Not sure if the best solution is reducing the Waiver window across the board or segregating TNF players, but this is a pretty silly restriction.

  14. Waiver issue with continuous waivers

    We have daily continuous waivers so first to phone doesn't get the player mid week when news hits. Been doing it for two years now. Two questions about this:


    • every Sunday I have to open waivers for last minute drops. Can this be automized.


    • Can we combine daily waivers with gametime to Tuesday? The idea here is Thursday guys don't come off waivers until Tuesday, not Friday. Everyone has lots of time to put claims in.

  15. Drag and Drop Waiver Priority

    The current use of drop down lists to order the waiver priority is cumbersome. A drag and drop interface would be much easier and faster.

  16. Conditional Waivers

    When prioritizing waivers, there should be an option to make certain waivers conditional based on higher priority waivers being successfully claimed. This would help when you don't want to lose your league waiver position for the lower priority claims, but would like to process multiple waiver claims if you already used your position on the #1 priority waiver claim.

  17. Fairness of Continual Rolling List waiver priority

    I don’t understand the logic/fairness of the Continual Rolling List waiver priority that is used in the Yahoo Pro Leagues (assuming I understand how it works). Whether teams are requesting the same players or different players from waivers, it appears that the team with the worse waiver priority will get the later time stamp in each round of claims? So if every team took one player off of waivers each Wednesday, or two etc., the waiver priority would never change. The only way I can improve my priority is if I take fewer players than someone else. That doesn’t seem…

  18. Sunday Only Waiver Option or 1 Day Waiver

    Have a option to do a Sunday only or 1 day waiver. This is a good compromise for people who like and dont like waivers. Allows people to go out watch or go to the games without stressing about the people sitting at home in front of the computer waiting for a injury.

  19. Players like Colin Kaepernick is should NOT be listed as a 49er.

    When the 49ers play (because he is apparently on their team unbeknownst to the 49ers) he is placed on Waivees which is INCORRECT. He should still be available to pickup as a Free Agent. This is a billion dollar business. Why are these obvious things being fixed prior to the season? It's mind boggling how many years it takes yahoo to make things right. It took 3 years of me and probably many others to hound them about excluding UNAVAILABLE players on Transaction Trends. And don't get me started on why Yahoo thinks ANYONE cares how many times a player…

  20. Please take away the team designations for players no longer on a team. Kaepernick is not a 49er. He should remain a F

    Players who are not currently on a roster should not have team names next to their names and more importantly should not be placed on waivers when their former team plays. They should remain a FA until either a fantasy team picks them up or a REAL team. Please fix this.
