  1. MAJOR FLAW

    Just found out for the first time that yahoo gives the commish no setting to determine regular season tie breakers except to manually change it. I assumed for 15 years that the setting that says “playoff tiebreaker” that I had set to head to head record vs. opponent in regular season only determines a tie in score in the playoffs. This is so dumb in so many levels. First ties can only happen in noob 1 point PPR leagues with no fractional points, which I haven’t played since my first few years way back in 2004-2005. So yahoo gives us…

    Hello Eric,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    We are continually working to refine our fantasy games and will get your suggestion to our product team.

    As you know how the tiebreaker works for the regular season, I would suggest informing your league at the beginning of the year how the regular season tiebreakers work. If you want to use the head-to-head matchup as the first tiebreaker, then inform your league that at the end of the year you will be making a custom playoff bracket based on this set league criteria so there are no surprises when it is done.

    Thanks,

  2. Allow the commisioner to rename teams

    In our league, the team that gets dead last loses the right to control their team name for the next season (the fourth place winner gets to choose the name all season). Currently, we have no way to enforce this - the Commisioner cannot edit team names. Please allow the Commisioner to edit team names!

  3. Allow an option for one retroactive start/sit

    Everyone hates having that guy on the bench who goes off for 40 points or a starter who gets scratched at the last second. This option would allow each team one start/sit switch to automatically be made every week after the games are done. Would add to strategical element of how to build a bench as well!

  4. Your Ratings / Levels Feature is Flawed

    I think your ratings / levels feature is flawed. I lost 18 off my ratings after Week 14 of the 2019 season seemingly because 4 of my starters in 2 leagues went down with in-game injuries. The players were all healthy at the start of their games so I would have had to have been clairvoyant to know they would have got injured. I lost both matches as a result which seems to be the only criteria you use in this rating. If the rating is meant to evaluate team managing ability though, how are players going down with unforeseeable…

  5. Allow us to random draw and then enter the results. Every time Yahoo does it the commissioner ends up with the first pick.

    At the beginning of the season, the commissioner can enter custom draft order in the Edit Draft Order & Assign Keeper Players tab in the commissioner settings.

  6. Playoff tie breakers should be determined by the bench players performance since the matchup is on that week's player's performances.

    In playoff game situations, tiebreakers should be based on bench player's performance since the matchup is based on that week's performance. Why Yahoo chooses to default to previous matchups is beyond me. In fact, there should be NO ties during the year either, because bench could and should determine the difference in that week's matchups. Unbelievable that an adjustment of two yards on a player's performance put me into a tie situation and made me lose the game and my playoff bid because of that tiebreaker rule. Allow the commissioner's to determine tiebreaker rules...thanks Yahoo

  7. You guys messed up BIG Time

    Saints blocked Indy punt in the first quarter but you did not give Saints D/ Special Teams credit. Because of your ***** up I lost the Semis.

    Hello Allen,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    If the ball goes beyond the line of scrimmage, the punter is credited with a punt of that yardage. A blocked kick will not be credited.

    If you refer to the Game Book, https://nflcdns.nfl.com/liveupdate/gamecenter/58123/NO_Gamebook.pdf, where we obtain our stats, you’ll find that no blocked punts were credited to the Saints as the ball was noted to be deflected by New Orleans and not blocked.

    Thanks,

  8. D/ST

    If a D/ST gets credit for a special teams touchdown (i.e. kickoff return), then D/ST should get negative points (i.e. points against total) when a fumble occurs on that special teams play and is returned for a touchdown by the opponent. Simply awarding a D/ST for touchdowns is counterintuitive and rewards teams who are reckless in their special teams plays.

    Hello James,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Items that count towards points allowed are all TDs scored against the defense or special teams from fake punts, field goals, returns from kickoffs/punts/blocked punts.

    A TD return from an interception, fumble or blocked field goal does not count. In the case where two special teams are on the field and a fumble recovery was returned for a TD by the opposing team, it is perceived as a defensive scoring play, thus not counting against the other defense/special teams.

    Thanks,

  10. Battle Royale Weeks

    Allow for the option of designating particular weeks as Battle Royale weeks where the top half of scorers get a win, and the bottom half get a loss. There is no way to do this under the current settings and we would like to play each team once, and then have Battle Royales in weeks 1 and 13.

    Hello Ella,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Scoring is not official during or after a player’s game and is not official until all receiving pending stat corrections have been applied for the league.

    The Ravens should be credited with 1 sack in their scoring and stats. If you still see an issue, please reach out at help.yahoo.com or @YahooFantasyCC on Twitter so we can look into this for you.

    Thanks,

  13. Continuous waivers don't seem to be working

    I have the league set up with continuous waivers which clear every day except Monday and Tuesday. They haven't cleared since Thursday and I'm getting alarmed messages from managers trying to pick up players right before the start of games. Something is not working with the waiver function!

  14. Bring back the "old" Matchup ratings from last year.

    In years past, under the Fantasy Football league resources there was a category called Research. It would have weekly matchup ratings for your own players or all players during the current season. Now it has ratings that include or maybe focus on what the players have done last year, and even back to 2017. The Matchup ratings we had in the past ONLY focused on the current season, which is much more relevant. They were very helpful in the past and I'm not sure why they changed this year.

  15. Add commish option to enable/disable stat corrections!

    I understand stat corrections get delayed. But my teammates hate having their results changed 2-3 days AFTER the last game. PLEASE give commissioners the option to ENABLE or DISABLE stat corrections all together!

  17. When you force me to take someone off IR, tell me that this will mess up my waiver setup.

    Yahoo forced me to take a person out of IR slot. What it didn't tell me was that I would no longer have an open spot and would make my waiver the following day invalid because I hadn't selected anyone to drop. When I setup the waiver, there was an open slot because of IR.

  19. Scheduling Divisional Matchups

    So currently, the only way to insure each team has an equal number of divisional matchups is to do it manually. Maybe something Yahoo can look into is to enable that to happen automatically as a commissioner tool. That way managers don't have to try and make the schedules work out so each team has the same number of divisional games (especially since divisional records is the tie breaker for regular season standings) ... seems like it should be an easy programming thing... match each team up once or twice (but all teams get the same # of divisional games)…
