  1. IDP position designation!

    The IDP community would love to see DL/Edge. Edge rushers in 3-4 typically OLB it would be a beautiful thing to bring them together. There is too much inconsistency in what players are labeled DL/LB. Or let commissioners have the options to have control who should be labeled at respectful position designation. DL/EDGE IS THE EVOLUTION OF THE IDP!! THANK YOU

    Hey Russell,

    Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback.

    Position eligibility is determined by a player’s past participation and info our data provider collects from NFL teams. Our data provider makes the final decision (there’s no set criteria) on position eligibility including when a new position is added.

    We will get your comments and suggestions to our product team.

    Thanks,

  2. Jaylen Samuels should not be listed as a RB/TE

    Yahoo needs to remove the TE designation from Jaylen Samuels. If he's allowed to be dressed as a TE for the playoffs and is in fact a RB it could break the playoffs for many leagues

    He’s had RB/TE eligibility all season. If we remove TE eligibility today, it would not take effect until this evening, after most claims had been made. We felt it was not fair to change so late in the day or season.

    Samuels will remain an RB/TE in our game.

  5. We need pre draft trading asap, dynasty is growing at a rapid pace and users want an easy dynasty format.

    Please please please get pre draft trading/year round trading asap!! Dynasty has gotten way more popular over the last few years and managers are getting fed up with having to manually trade and i lost 2 managers last year because of this. Managers are now breathing down my neck to move the league this year but yahoo is my favorite platform and i'm trying my best to keep it together on here. i'm shcoked that this hasnt been done yet. Espn has allowed it for awhile now, but there down fall is that they don't allow draft picks to be…

  6. Need another playoff choice

    I love your fantasy football league but I need you to add another playoff option. My league this year will be two divisions with six playoff teams. I want both divisions champions to have first round byes, but I want my No. 2 seed and No. 3 seed in each division to meet in the first round of the playoffs, and then the winner plays the No. 1 seed from the same division. I want to keep the playoffs inter-division like NFC vs NFC, and AFC vs, AFC. You do not currently offer that option. I want 3 playoff teams…

    Hi Tampa,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    As league commissioner, you have the option to use the commissioner tools to edit the 1st week of the playoffs for both the seedings and matchups. This would allow you to have the division winners have a bye then have the 2 seed play the 3 seed from each respective division and the following week play the 1 seed in the semifinals. Learn more at https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN28555.html.

    If you do not want reseeding, you can disable this setting in the league settings. Learn more by going to https://help.yahoo.com/kb/fantasy-football/enable-playoff-reseeding-yahoo-fantasy-sln6467.html.

    Thanks,

  7. Scheduling

    Not so much of an idea but more a question. Every year I renew my league the schedule automatically is set and the two championship teams always play each other the 1st game of the season. Is that a Yahoo configuration or something I can fix. Last year I caught flack for changing the schedule because of this issue?

    Thanks for reaching out. You can always randomize the schedule but I believe the matchups to be random. Unfortunately I’m not sure of the algorithm for scheduling.

  8. Stop putting keeper league status on my leagues, I have never used it, yet it pops up every year

    Every year in all sports, my leagues, that have never used Keeper league setup and never will, whether I renew or have re-set-up the league are built with keeper league dates and restrictions. Let leagues decide if they want to be keeper leagues. Or simply renew them as they were built in the prior year. When I set up the league if I want keeper setup on it I will make that decision. I do not want to go about setting up the league and be hit with Keeper league restricts that messages.

    Hi Dustin,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    When renewing the league from year to year, there is a box selected to import rosters from the previous season. If you do not want the keeper options enabled, then you just need to uncheck this box before renewing the league.

    Should you miss this option, you can disable the keeper league management tools for the league through the commissioner tools to be a standard fantasy league.

    Thanks,

  9. Allow Team Defense Categories to Apply to Individual Defensive Players (IDP)

    Trying to balance individual defensive players with offensive players is tough. I've realized that the biggest setback for IDP is that they can't achieve any cumulative stats (yardage) over the course of the game.

    I think that allowing cumulative team defensive stats to be applied to individual players would be a good start.

    In the end the existing stats are still not ideal for each position. Right now we can only select Points Allowed and Defensive Yards Allowed for DEF. But it's a start.

    In an ideal world, we should be able to apply Rushing Yards allowed to defensive linemen…

  10. Bring back "enter live draft now". Or much more open selections to enter live draft for that day.

    I'm tried of searching for draft times. To which most I won't be available to participate. I remember 15 years ago all I had to do was enter number of teams n live or not draft and presto. Several teams appeared with time to select from. We need that now. I tried to create a league open to the public and was unable to. I don't want to send invites. I like it to be open to ALL yahoo members to join. Fast, simple and the way it should be.

    Hi Shawn,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    If you are looking for a Custom League, you can use the filters to narrow down a specific date and draft type you are looking for. If you have availability on June 13th for example, you can search for drafts on this date, see how many teams are in the league and join the league at the time that suits you.

    If you’re looking to create a league and open it up to the public to join, make sure you’re following the steps located at https://help.yahoo.com/kb/opened-public-sln7211.html.

  12. Edit Final Standings

    Allow commissioners to edit final standings after the season ends. Someone else posted this but it was removed. Some of my leagues want the finals standings based off of the regular season standings and not the consolation bracket. This should be simple to add and done asap since we still have two weeks left. Allow it to be done the week after the season ends.

  13. 7 Playoff Teams Option

    My league has always tried to mirror the NFL with 16 teams and 6 playoff teams being half the NFL numbers. With the NFL now going to 14 teams I'd like to be able to have 7 playoff teams.

  14. Stop allowing back to back auto drafters, ruins drafts!!!!

    Its not realistic , no one is going to the highest rated yahoo player every single round of the draft regardless of postion. Auto drafters distorts when you should draft what and when. Time out anyone that autodrafts 2-3 times in a row. People want to to draft with people not bots.

    Hello Eric,

    We appreciate you taking time to leave feedback.

    Auto draft works the same in mock drafts as it will in an actual draft for a league if managers cannot make the draft.

    All starter positions are filled before bench positions.

    You can’t designate which round a player is picked or a position is filled.
    Each round, autopick drafts the highest-ranked (pre-rank, then default rank) available player based on your position needs.

    The system determines a max number of players to positions ratio, including bench, so that your roster positions are balanced.

    Your feedback has been provided to our product team.

  15. Changes to Fantasy Football Settings:

    Being a Yahoo Commish for 18 years, few changes NEEDED:

    1) Since PPR is the new norm, please add scoring setting for Dropped Passes. We can add negative value for dropping passes. This can influence WR's and RB's who catch.

    2) Add value changes, ie. RB who catches passes, add value where we can +/- points for any RB that has receiving yards. So if McCaffrey gets 100 yards receiving, we can make it 1 pt. per 20 yards receiving, and still have 1 pt. per 10 yards receiving for WR's.

    Hi James,

    Thank you for leaving your feedback.

    We are continually working to refine our fantasy games on a year-to-year basis for a good experience for our members. Your suggestions have been provided to our product team.

    In the meantime, if you would like to use this type of scoring in your league, you can use the commissioner tools to edit the scoring for teams in the league each week. It will require some additional work on your end but you can determine the value and enter the negative amount for the points for dropped passes. You can also edit the scoring to account for 1 point per 20 yards as opposed to 1 point per 10 yards for a wide receiver.

    The edit team points can be found in the commissioner tools under the Manage Other Teams setting of the tools.

    Thanks,

  16. Improvements for Points Only and IDP Leagues

    Hello,

    I hope this message finds you all well. I was hoping to possibly make a couple suggestions for potential improvements in Yahoo Fantasy Football. My group loves using Yahoo and there were a few things we thought maybe it was worth reaching out about.


    1. Option to put a “max” for player position on your roster. We play a mixed offense and IDP league. So it is very difficult to keep rosters balanced when there is no limit to the number of players per position. For example: maximum 6 RBs, 6 LB, etc. It’s a small thing but it really…

  17. Add IDP positions to "superflex" so be QB, HB, WR,TE,DB,LB,DL I believe this be a great "superflex" option

    Running a 2Qb, IDP league myself would love this to be an option based on lack of QBs. With a league of 12 teams or more this would help with flexibility to also include IDP positions DB LB and DL .

  20. 5 team playoff

    Can you add 5 teams make the playoffs, kind of like a play in game. Seeds 4 vs 5 in week 14, with seeds 1,2,3 earning buys. Then the winner vs #1 and 2 vs 3 in week 15 and so on.

    Hi Eric,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    We will get your suggestion to our product team.

    If you would like to use this type of playoff this season, you will need to run your regular season through Week 14. You can edit the matchups for the week so the teams that would be the 4 and 5 seed will play one another in Week 14. You would also set up the league with a 4 team playoff format, so the playoffs would start in Week 15 and you would be able to edit the first round of the playoffs to set the matchups and seeds for the last 4 teams and continue with the playoffs.

    Thanks,
