  1. 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,…

  3. can we please do away with

    Can we please do away with waivers in public leagues? Or at least not have them be three days. It hurts owners who pay more attention to their teams!

  4. 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.

  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.

  7. ADD A PLAYER

    When adding a player and dropping them shortly after, meaning the same day, should still be available to the remaining teams to select, and preventing that team from adding that plater for a week. A player should be on your roster for three days before being added to the waiver wire. It will lead to making smarter decisions

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. Please allow waivers by lottery

    I think it would be great if you waiver claims could be resolved by lottery instead of position/ranking.

    This would allow everyone to place waiver claims with no cost.

    This would eliminate any need for people to wake up early the next morning to grab free agents who weren't important enough to waste waiver position, since there was no cost to begin with.

  11. Modify the waiver rule (error #245)

    The way Yahoo has it set up, if you drop a player, then want him back, you CAN NOT put a claim in for him. That is ridiculous. Sure, the player has to pass through the entire league before you can pick him back up, but the way Yahoo has it set up, everyone else in the league can put multiple claims, and you have to wait until ALL are processed before the player is available to you (if he hasn't been scooped up). The way it should be is, that player passes through the waiver order ONCE before the…

  12. Please add option to Lock all players (for that week) once their game has started! Common sense option on other platforms

    I like having the Waivers run once a day (almost everyday) so there's never a time a team can simply Add a player based off of breaking news... they have to put a Waiver claim in. However, with this "Continuous" Waiver option in Yahoo, it doesn't Lock the Thursday night guys once they've played. When our Waivers process on Saturday, the Thursday night guys are available to put a bid in! That makes no sense!

    So PLEASE Yahoo, simply add an option to Lock Players at Gametime (regardless of the Waivers setting). It's a simple option that other main platforms…

  13. Please make adding players for a Monday night game reflect in the current week, not next week.

    I have a no waivers league. I want to add a player for tonight's MNF game, but when I try to add a player it is reflected on next week's schedule. I'm not trying to exchange a player that already played this week. I'm trying to exchange a player that was on my bench all week.
    What if I have a questionable player going into Monday's game? What if I would like to trade him out on Monday before the game starts? Why do I need to exchange him on Sunday, before I know whether he's playing or not?
    The…

  14. 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.

  15. Place FA/Waiver pickups that replace Starters as a Starter not a Bench player

    Please change how your website works when you pick a player off waivers to replace an existing STARTING player. As of now the waiver pick up is added as a Bench player and the Starting stop is listed as Open. I screwed up this last week by replacing my Starting Kicker with a FA just minutes before kickoff. I presumed that was set. I checked my roster literally 5 seconds after game start to realize my new Kicker was stuck as a bench player and I had no Kicker for the week. I had to still make another switch to…

  16. Why can't the waiver wire clear at a more reasonable time in the a.m.?

    How about 9 a.m. Pacific, 8 a.m. Mountain, 7 a.m. Central and 6 a.m. Eastern? It's ridiculous that we have to try and get up in the middle of the night to pick up a free agent without losing our waiver status. Why is it done this way?

  17. 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.

  18. Allow Commissioner to change between weekly & FAAB waivers

    Short version: Allow the commissioner to change between weekly & FAAB waiver formats.

    Currently, Commissioners can change the weekly waiver options between continuous rolling waivers, reverse order of standings, and a reverse order of standings weekly rolling list that resets after each week. In order to change to a FAAB waiver format, the commissioner has to contact Yahoo support.

    Then the commissioner can change between the different tie-break methods for FAAB. If the league wants to go back to weekly waivers, they have to contact Yahoo again.

    Hey Michael, thanks for your feedback. This is something our engineering team will investigate further. Good luck this season!

  19. Modify Existing Waiver Claims

    I suggest adding the ability to completely modify existing waiver claims. I often want to change the players involved in a waiver claim that I've already made. That functionality is not currently present so the only option is to cancel the waiver claim and resubmit a new one. It can be a pain point because one may have to re-enter FAAB bids and rearrange the waiver priority.

  20. Add an alert setting when a player is dropped to the wire.

    Managers should be able to set alerts for players that get dropped to the waiver wire as well as traded. This could even be limited, but it will expose collusion as well as get managers more active in the wire (using the app more often)
