2 or more matchups per week
We changed to CBS 3 yrs ago, only because they offer this features, lot of time and you dont offer this?
Please we preffer Yahoo for so many other things but we cant go back without this feature. thanks.
I agree with the comments below that "Mike" posted on July 19 and that "Me" posted on Oct.24.
I think it would be simpler & more easily understandable to have each team play each team each week.
That way, the "luck of the schedule" would be less of an issue.
In an 8-team league, the team with the highest score would receive 7 wins, the team with the second highest score would receive 6 wins & 1 loss, the team with the third highest score would receive 5 wins & 2 losses, etc.
I think it would be easier to program than the current method of creating a list of opponents for each team each week.
When play-offs arrive, the team with the most wins would have the top seed, etc.
Either this way playing against the league average, or the ability to split the scoring up where the top half or third or whatever scoring teams also get a win and the bottom group also gets a loss.
Or use Victory Points.
Win = 2 points,
Tie = 1 point
Loss = 0 points
Top 3-4 scores = 2 points
Bottom 3-4 scores = 0 points
Middle (whats left) scores = 1 point
Then rank the standing by victory point total. Either way, its more fair scoring wise, but also keeps the head to head weekly rivalry.

OR... you can just not play head-to-head.
I love the idea (I think). I run a 10 team HH league, small but that's what we like. There are only 4 teams that get to play for the trophy and there has been a year where the top scoring team didn't make the playoffs. I would like the option to be able to bump 4th place team (or team with the least points) down to consolation and move highest scoring team up to trophy category. This would be done with all managers approval before the next season started, but I like the idea.
Hope it's not too difficult to implement....
This idea is awesome. I don't have anything substantive to add, I just want to support this option and hope it gets noticed by commenting positively.
This is a great idea....Ive been trying to institute it in my league for a while now but since yahoo doesnt even have the option we havent done it....make it happen Yahoo!

YES!!! My vote would be for two possible wins/losses per team each week. One for the head-to-head, and one based on points. Assuming 12 team league, top 6 teams get an extra win, bottom 6 teams get an extra loss. Everyone goes 2-0, 1-1, or 0-2. I'd even be happy doing this manually as the commissioner if Yahoo allowed us to change the wins/loss records. They allow point changes, but not win/loss.
It is a matter of what you want for your league. If you want to give everyone a chance to get lucky and win the whole thing, this isn't for you. If you want to have a setup that gets the best teams to the top, this would work in your league. There would still be luck, but it would be cut down a little. I like the idea and concept behind it!

This is a very great idea that I actually have discussed in my league. I would say that the decision is about split to incorporate it. I think that going against the median would be better than going against the average, but maybe Yahoo could have the option for either one. Great thoughts! I posted this suggestion earlier, and here is the link:
sorry actually you could go 11-0, 0-11 or anywhere in between
Great idea. I actually would love to have every team play each other every week. In a 12 team league you can go 12-0, 0-12 or anywhere in between. The luck factor needs to be removed from yahoo and the only way to do that is to allow us to customize our schedules as we see fit.
There should be a head to head matchup for each team, and the top scores for each week should get a win, and the bottom half scores should get a loss. so each week a team can go 2-0, 1-1, or 0-2. This could get bad for the low scoring teams, but oh well, they wont be winning anyway.

I like the idea a lot and think it needs to be added. I think the one tweak should be if you score in the top half of the league, not the average. I guess they might be the same thing. if you are in a 10 team league would get a win if you score in the top 5 point total for the week and if you win your game. If you are in a 12 team league, you get a win if you score in the top 6, etc...
We should def do this. I also like throwing out the highest and lowest scores as well.
I am able to do this on another site and it has been very effective at leveling out the playing field and removing the "luck" factor throughout the season. We throw out the high and low scores for the week and make the average out of the other 8 scores (10 team league). I enjoy Yahoo! so much better than any other site as a platform for Fantasy Football but I would like to have the options available that some of the other sites have when it comes to forming a custom league.
Actually, even if you can just have two games per week (face two opponents per week) that'd be awesome.
PLEASE! This is such a great thing.
