  1. Seperate the chat section from the players drafted....too much going on in that box.

    Separate the chat section from the players drafted ....there is way too much chatting going on in order to concentrate on the players that have been drafted. Why can't they be separate boxes? I don't like to see all the **** that people want to say about players when they're drafted.....if people like that then let them view it in another box so the serious people can concentrate on just the players that get drafted. Look at the ESPN site and see what I'm talking about....the most user friendly site I have ever seen.

  2. More in-draft control

    Commissioner should be able to pause the draft, make picks for someone, even be able to go back and change a pick if need be. Not everyone can be at the draft. And sometimes the circumstances are less than ideal. Wifi cuts out all the time. People have technical issues. We had to switch to ****** espn this year because of their in draft controls.

  3. Live Draft Party

    Yahoo does not have enough options to accommodate live drafts. Did a live draft this year and it worked out great but I had to use Clickydraft instead of yahoo. The options that made us choose Clickydraft are:

    1. Read only URL of live draftboard. This allows anybody to stream the draftboard where they have a web browser. We were able to put the draftboard up on a 70in tv for everyone to see at draft party.

    2. Extend draft pick timer and pause timer. While hosting a live draft party with 10 close friends and a lot of drinking,…

  4. Editing pre-draft rankings is very cumbersome.

    #1 Please add a search function for player names.
    #2 Please exclude players already on rosters - for keeper leagues

  5. Make time zones clear.

    Auction is set for 7 pm MST and countdown is 7pm PDT which is 8 MST. It is very hard to get 10 people to all reschedule last minute. You need to have someone select the time zone themselves or get your setting right (make MST = MST)!!

  6. Pre-Draft Rankings

    I have been playing Yahoo Fantasy football for 15 years and I have never had this issue. For some reason our pre-rankings are quarterback heavy with the top 20 pics as QB's. Our point distribution has been the same every year, and this is the first time we have experienced this. Is there a way to have the defualt pre-ranking the same as the AVG draft pick. Has anybody else had this issue? If this is a league issue I think it should be corrected. I would just like to know why this has changed and what I can do…

  7. Please add a an option to set a keeper limit.

    It would be great to be able to set the max number of keepers that an owner can keep.
    While currently the Commish can review everyone's keepers before confirming them, if people chose to keep too many, now I have to chase them down and find out who the really wanted to keep.
    It would hopefully be a fairly simple change that would make life much easier for me and my co-commissioners.
    Thanks!

  9. Release draft order once league is finalized

    Draft order should be randomly assigned when the league members are finalized, not 30 minutes before it begins. This would allow people to do mock drafts in their assigned draft position and prepare properly ahead of time.

  10. Pre Draft rankings

    Why are the pre-draft rankings to top heavy with QB's? That will make it very difficult with the leagues having auto pick players.

    Thank you all for your feedback! The pre-draft rankings are based on total points projected, hence why QBs are stacked at the top.

    Engineering is working to switch the current pre-draft rankings to match our X-ranks. Will update here once resolved. Thanks again!

  11. Give commissioners ability to limit # of players of single position(Ex: 5QBs, 1 team)

    I suggest Yahoo give commissioners the ability to limit the number of players a team can draft for a single position. I have several 16 team leagues and without fail there is that one player who drafts QB after QB. One team with 5QBs in a 16 team league means several teams will be forced to trade with him just to get a starting QB, let alone get a second QB for depth and bye week. That would go a long way to a great 2018 season.

  12. Allow draft order to be imported from a spread sheet program such as EXCEL.

    For someone like myself who likes to rank a very large number of players, the current system is cumbersome and time consuming. It is far easier for me to rank players in a spread sheet.

  13. Custom Draft Order

    It was 56 minutes before the draft was scheduled to take place and I wanted to set a custom draft order, but Yahoo has an arbitrary rule where I can't change the draft order 1 hour before the draft. So I had to reschedule the whole draft. Thanks, Yahoo, for not giving me full control over my league.

  14. Pre-Draft Rankings

    It seems that the pre-draft rankings are not correct. It looks like players are listed based on how they finished in scoring last year. Please correct this.

  15. Nomination time for auction drafts needs to be decreased

    This is our 12th year playing together and the 6th year doing an auction draft. The time it takes for people to nominate players is too long. There should be an option for 15 seconds, because the lowest option right now of 30 seconds, is far too long. If guys are not paying attention and forget to nominate then a good player still gets nominated automatically. With a league of 12 guys drafting 15 players, that's an hour and a half spent just on nominations. The draft takes way too long. Adding the option (not making it a default by…

  16. Please give the commissioner unlimited pauses for online drafts.

    Please allow the commissioner to pause the draft an unlimited amount of times for the online draft. In a league where we can trade draft picks - it's annoying when the commissioner is unable to pause the draft to work out the players being picked up.

  17. Mock drafts: report trolls

    Let us help filter out those who "troll" and intentionally ruin mock drafts.

    A guy named Cliff drafted: Jay Cutler 1st overall, followed by: Tony Romo, Younghoe Koo, and Jordan Gay. Cool.

  18. YAHOO - CHANGE YOUR "PRE-DRAFT" CHANGES CAPABILITY

    Two issues I faced regarding "Pre-Draft" settings:

    1ST ISSUE:
    1) 10 minutes before the draft time for one of my league, I realized that the time needed to be pushed by 30 minutes (I am the commissioner). Yahoo's pre-draft settings would not let me do this. The commissioner can only change the draft time UP TO one hour before the draft time begins. As per Yahoo, this is because that is when the draft room is created. This is ridiculous. You should be able to change the draft time ANYTIME before the draft begins, even if it's one second before…

  19. Adding add/drop feature PRE-DRAFT

    Adding add/drop feature PRE-DRAFT this allows dynasty GMs to add in offseason trades, then GMs can pick keepers with their proper players and we can then online draft, this would make dynasty leagues so much easier and better to use!

  20. Allow for a longer draft clock time limit than two minutes for electronic drafts, and allow for no draft clock.

    The two-minute draft clock limit is an arbitrary limitation on leagues that isn't conducive for leagues that meet to draft in person and like to take their time with the draft. Of course, there is the option to plug in the players manually, but that adds additional effort for the commissioner and sometimes can result in miscommunications without a live draft board. Allowing for us to use the software Yahoo! provides with a draft clock that is longer than two minutes, or even allowing for there to be no draft clock, would vastly improve the experience.
