  1. Bring Back Polls

    I don't know why polls were disabled, but when I am setting up a new league it would really be helpful to have polls so we can all agree on scoring settings.

    • 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…

      • 6 team playoff (includes a consolation bracket)

        To be consistent with the default playoff scheme, which Baseball, Basketball, and Hockey uses, Football should use the following, instead of the 4 team playoff (includes a consolation bracket):

        The top 6 teams in the league standings after the last week of the Fantasy regular season qualify for a 3-week postseason tournament to determine a league champion.

        The next 6 teams in the standings qualify for a consolation bracket to determine 7th through 12th place. The season is over for everyone else.

        Teams - 6 championship, 6 consolation
        Playoff Weeks - 2 options:
        Weeks 14, 15, and 16
        Weeks 15,…

        • Additional Roster Positions

          In order to keep Special Teams relevant, I propose adding two positions:

          KR = Kick Returner
          PR = Punt Returner

          Each NFL team designate a player, usually a wide receiver, slotted on its special team roster. Adding the above two roster positions will allow leagues to utilize the return yards and the return touchdowns into their grand scheme of their football strategy.

          The above will provide a valuable option for league owners, whereas, some wide receivers and runnings backs may be on the low end of their respective depth chart, but may be on the top end of the special…

          • Make the team picture bigger

            Team names and pictures are an important part of fantasy football if you are in a league with people who are the least bit creative. The little circular team picture is so small that nobody can see what it is. You also have to spend too much time editing your picture to get what you want to fit into it. It should be a much larger square or rectangle.

            • Kickers - part of defense/special teams.

              As a custom scoring option, I think making kickers a part of defense/special teams makes perfect sense since in real life kickers are actually a part of the special teams. They would collect points for field goals made and extra points, but lose points for missed field goals/extra points. An argument against losing points for missed FGs/PATs has been if the kick was blocked it wasn't really the kickers fault, but this contends that argument because in that case, it's the entire special team's fault for letting the blocker through. I'd really like to see this available in custom scoring…

              • Offer a fully customizable post season league for weeks 18 through 21

                Offer a fully customizable post season league for weeks 18 through 21. The league I've been hosting on a different site is a points only league consisting of 8 roster spots and no salary cap. Any participant can choose any player they prefer multiple times through weeks 18 through 21. The participant with the most points at the end wins.

                  In IDP leagues, MLB's are the heavy hitter and are therefore stacked on benches.

                  • Scoring formats

                    Please add the option for adjusting reception value independent of position and adding the ability to adjust reception scoring by decimal values. For example... my league would like to use a 0.5 PPR scoring setting for all players and a 1.5 PPR scoring value for TE. As of now you can only set it to 0 or 1 PPR.

                    • Additional Win/Loss Based On Weekly Points

                      In addition to one's head to head matchup, there should be a win or loss based on your points for the week. If a team scores in the top half of the league, they should get a win (bottom half- loss). Therefore every week a team would have two results (2-0, 1-1, or 0-2). It seems like every week I hear someone complain that he or she had the 2nd highest score in a league but lost because they played against the highest scorer. This system would take the luck out of the regular season, and more accurately determine the…

                      • Cost per Transaction on the Waiver Wire

                        Cost Per Transactions: My current league is a cash league, however we also collect at the end of the year for roster pickups on the waiver wire. $2.50 per pickup, $2.50 per drop. A move cost $5.00 total.

                        In 2017, can Yahoo collect the transaction fee when the transaction is made?

                        Action: Have the paypal account link to Yahoo Wallet, everytime a transaction is made, the withdrawal is collected in the league pot.

                        2016 was even better as the Commissioner end of the year responsibilities are automated with payments with the collection of funds at the start of the season.

                        • Practice squad

                          Please add a practice / taxi squad designation for dynasty leaguers!! Allowing some bench spots tagged for rookies / practice squad allows us to hold rookie drafts for prospects without using bench spots that cost us viability / waiver claim space. Essentially we'd need to add another designation (like IR or Bench) that once a player is removed from they can not be allowed to be put back (without commissioner modification).

                          • 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.

                              We can currently evaluate a trade to see what projected points differences are for the teams involved. Is there a way to make this feature available for when we add free agents? It would be helpful to see projected weekly and season points differences based on adding/dropping a player.

                              • 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.

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?

                                    Leave the leagues open year round to allow for offseason trades through the site and to help commissioners leave the rosters the same. It stinks having to load in every player every year and starting the first round of our draft in round 19 or whatever

                                    • Optimal Line Up - Season Rankings

                                      At the end of the regular season, Yahoo should show how teams would have ranked if Optimal line ups were submitted for the season. Just for fun and hazing/ bragging.

                                      97th ranked

                                      • Make the Team Log Sortable

                                        The team log could be a valuable tool if it was sortable and showed fantasy points rather than just raw stats. This seems odd considering every other table of players in yahoo fantasy is sortable in some way except for the team log. There is also an issue with columns being aligned on that page which could be easily fixed.

                                        • Commissioners need the ability to adjust playoff brackets based on our own tiebreakers

                                          We have 2 divisions of 5...Firemen vs Cops....Top seed each division gets bye. 2vs 3 in week 14 on each side....week 15 winner of 2vs 3 plays #1 seed. week 16 its 1 cop vs 1 fireman for the title and a 3rd place game. No way to set this up under Yahoo's settings. I wouldn';t think it would be that hard to allow commish control the change playoff settings
