  1. Make it possible for leagues to add / trade / drop year round to accommodate the dynasty format

    Be ahead of the curve and cater to Dynasty Leagues. Make it possible for leagues to add / trade / drop year round to accommodate the dynasty format. Currently it says “the game has ended” and no roster edits are possible.

  2. Dropping bench players after they play (REMOVE)

    You need to remove the ability to drop bench players once they've played. This is the only platform that allows this and multiple analysts have spoke out about why this shouldn't be allowed.
    If a player tears his ACL on Thursday Night Football, you should't be allowed to drop him for another player who has yet to play, even if he was on your bench.
    At a minimum, you should add a setting for commissioners that locks all players to a team's roster once they have played, regardless of if they are starters or benched.

  3. 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.

  4. Programmable Waiver Period End Time

    With the Yahoo FFL current restrictions, the waiver period ends on Tuesday at 3:00 AM EST. This means that free agency opens at this time, which is not very convenient for those who don't want to burn their waiver spot for the week, but still want first access to the free agency pool. Can you please make the waiver period end time programmable?

  5. 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…

  6. Continuous Waivers except from 4:00 AM Sunday until game-time. This allows people to make last-minute roster moves

    Give us the option to have continuous waivers except from 4:00 AM Sunday (when waivers process overnight) until game-time. This allows people to make last-minute roster moves when players are unexpectedly ruled out on gameday.

  7. Sunday Only Waiver Option or 1 Day Waiver

    Have a option to do a Sunday only or 1 day waiver. This is a good compromise for people who like and dont like waivers. Allows people to go out watch or go to the games without stressing about the people sitting at home in front of the computer waiting for a injury.

  8. Prioritize FAAB Transactions (not completed!)

    This issue was already reported and marked as COMPLETED but is still a problem. Thank you user Mike (https://yahoo.uservoice.com/users/38597922-mike) for the excellent description of the issue.

    https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/206158-fantasy-football/suggestions/9002020-prioritize-faab-transactions

    "Yahoo, you need to enable owners to prioritize their FAAB transactions. Your current setup of processing an owner's highest bid over their lowest bid is an egregious mistake.

    Take the following example:
    Owner A wants to drop Adrian Peterson for Matt Asiata with a bid of $8.
    Owner A also wants to drop Adrian Peterson for Jerick McKinnon with a bid of $2.

    Let's say Owner A would actually prefer the…

  9. Customize waivers to run on multiple days and be "free" on gameday

    The options for waivers are very limited, either running Tuesday PM or players always stay on waivers (continuous). We'd like to run waivers on multiple days, but still enable "free for all" on game day so owners aren't stuck waiting for waivers.

    If we could get the above change, that would be awesome. Beyond that, I believe it should be built in that, on a day that a player has a game, they are removed from waivers. This allows owners to make moves on Thursday night prior to the game if needed, while the players not in the game are…

  10. 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?

  11. Please allow a waiver option that ends at noon on Sunday, opens after MNF and processes on WED night. Makes more sense because of Thurs game

    Close waiver as usual on Sunday at noon. Open them again after the Monday night game. Allow waiver claims until Wednesday night and process them Thursday morning. I think this makes more sense because the first INJURY REPORT of the week comes out on WEDNESDAY and you'd have your claims for the Thursday night game.

  12. Close the loophole in the waiver wire

    Stop allowing the West Coast to have an advantage over the East Coast. The East Coast shouldn't have to get up at 3am to try and get FA before the waiver wire starts. Adjust the time so it makes it fair for everyone. The West Coast can pick up players and never loose their waiver spot at the top.

  13. Allow locking bench players after their game begins until waivers begin on Tuesday.

    Bench players whose teams have played may still be dropped, allowing the team to sign player on teams whose games have not begun. At a minimum, there should be an option to disallow dropping such players, and require them to remain on the roster until waivers begin. While my league likes the Yahoo platform, other platforms allow this option, and we hope that Yahoo could allow such a restriction rather than needing to switch platforms.

  14. Waiver issue with continuous waivers

    We have daily continuous waivers so first to phone doesn't get the player mid week when news hits. Been doing it for two years now. Two questions about this:


    • every Sunday I have to open waivers for last minute drops. Can this be automized.


    • Can we combine daily waivers with gametime to Tuesday? The idea here is Thursday guys don't come off waivers until Tuesday, not Friday. Everyone has lots of time to put claims in.

  15. Please Help with IR

    It is not fair to hurt our ability to make our team better. Or at the least be active on the waiver wire while trying to preserve my squad. I have a player whom all reporting says will be out for weeks, and low and behold every week he has ended up out. But at the beginning of the week you keep changing it to questionable and then on Friday-Saturday you change it back to Out. This is hurting my ability to participate in Waivers. I want to pick another player and drop another player but because this players status…

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. Award waiver claims first, then release all remaining players to free agents! Players locked with no claims..

    Players are being locked in the waiver system even when they are not claimed by anyone. At 1am, most players that are not claimed move to free agents. This morning it kept several players, including Matt Bryant and Cameron Brate locked in the waiver system, even though no one claimed them. Then, apparently after waivers were awarded at 2:21am, they became free agents. It would be beneficial for all fantasy team owners if Yahoo would lock all players until waiver claims are awarded and then release all unclaimed players to free agency at the same time. Doing it in different…

  20. Alshon Jeffery (and other players) going from OUT to QUESTIONABLE every week?

    I spent a draft pick on Alshon Jeffery who has not played yet thru week 3 and every week I am blocked from making waiver claims because his status changes from OUT to QUESTIONABLE. (Then back to OUT on Friday or Saturday) I would have to drop two players to make a waiver claim. (one to take him of IR and another one to make a claim) It's not right. 3 weeks now he hasn't played and 3 weeks I've been penalized for drafting him. Why can't a player like Jeffery remain marked OUT until the team says he is…
