  1. Weekly waiver wire glitch.

    The waiver period ends each Tuesday nite at precisely 11.59pm - but the waivers are not filled for another hour or two - and we have some owners who have figured out that the free agent players are all available to pick up in that time dead space. Please fix that by keeping all the players on waivers until the computer actually fills the waiver requests.

    • Copy and pasting photos into a message no longer works

      I post weekly "Player of the Week" messages. I would normally copy and paste photos of GIFs into the message to make it more entertaining but now all that pops up is "Image result" or the URL for the image.

      Half the time when I post messages they don't show up on the message board either. Other players get an email notification of my message but it doesn't show up on the board.

      Please straighten this out ASAP.

      • Tyreek Hill WR/RB

        Tyreek Hill should be heavily considered to have his position be WR/RB based on the amount of time he lines up in the backfield in addition to his actual touches.

        • Total Points needs more value

          As the commissioner of my league for the last five years I am constantly looking to improve our league to make it more competitive and more fun. I believe that win loss record should not be the only way to determine playoff seedings, and league standings. Points For is the best indicator to show how well the team is done not Just win loss. I would like to see Yahoo To allow customized playoff seeding by allowing the commissioner to rank teams according to their total points for. It a 10 man league I would propose that three playoff seeding…

          • Every Team Plays Every Team Every Week

            In Yahoo's review of each week's game, Yahoo reports "If this team had played every team each week, its record would be ..."
            That's interesting to read.
            It would also be fun to play.
            Just move it from the weekly review to the league's standings.
            Then sit back and think about how much CPU and data storage is saved by not having to generate and store a league schedule for every league.

              Dear anyone who is responsible /or should be/ for this issue,

              First of all, I write here because this topic is the closest to my question. Unbelievable that there isn't a place to ask your questions about a specified topic...

              I am very surprised about the new look and design of the yahoo premier league sport site. Simply: I don't understand what happened!?!?!?!?!!! The new design is... terrible, I'm sorry to say this but it is true! Everybody shares this opinion around me and probably I am the most surprised! The previous version/design was much much more better, that was…

              • Suggestions

                Dear Customer Service,

                My suggestion is creating a system that detects inactive participants. It is unfair when someone quits and they have great players on their team and no one has access to them. Can they be automatically dropped in the waiver wire so they can be picked up? It would also be great to be able to have the QB and his backup automatically added to a roster so when you lose yours at the last minute you get the back up to step in. Lastly during the playoffs a new draft inclusive of the players non-playoff participants have…

                • PPR Pro Leagues and Higher Stakes

                  I know that football is still far away but I would recommend the PRO500 and maybe PRO1000 leagues. Also PPR option would be great.

                  • 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…

                                    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).
