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.

It's insane that another year has gone by, and none of the substantive changes asked for by the community have been added. Some of the top-10 have been asked for years ago. It's great to see Yahoo adding such important features as "BRING BACK SMACK TALK", and "LET ME HAVE A PICTURE BY MY NAME".
After you've played in a private league for more than a few years you'll understand.
Both of the options you suggested are used heavily in public games, no real league uses either of them. Head-to-head is the preferred type of game of the two offered by Yahoo and most other sites. Allowing multiple games per week enables larger leagues (my 20 team league, for instance) to have a more realistic (closer to NFL 17 game) season, and thus a more accurate playoff bracket.
Your comments about what is "fair" are probably accurate, but what's "fair" isn't always FUN. Lets make things fun.
I agree with this, and it should be easy enough for Yahoo to implement. The more people you play per week takes away from some of the luck factor of fantasy football.
I agree with JamesK. Let's have every team play every team every week.
Why bother with such a complicated system when better systems of scoring are available?
Yahoo can more easily add "All-Play" rankings under which each team plays every other team each week. That is Fair.
Your league can already use "Total Points" scoring under which the team which scores the most total points during the season wins the league. That is Fair.
Both of these systems are better than what is being suggested here.

Listen up Yahoo. this request is really important. For private leagues at least
James Goode commented
Please explain what you mean by "All-Play."
James Goode commented
I agree that this idea would be an improvement.
However, I'd really prefer to see Yahoo offer the option of every team playing every team each week.
It's the fair way to run a league, and it would require less change in Yahoo's computer code because Yahoo already reports in its game recap "if you played every team this week, ..." and if you played every team every week, ..."

All-Play scoring, All-Play + Head to Head, Victory Scoring...these formats have been around for years. Yahoo needs to adopt some of these scoring options. I hate to move my league, which has been with Yahoo from the beginning, but they're falling way behind.
Good article(2 years old BTW)
As with most of the comments, I switched to a paid league site because Yahoo didn't offer dual matchups each week. I WOULD LOVE TO SWITCH TO YAHOO IF ONLY YOU HAD THIS FEATURE!
Not sure if it exists, but be nice to be able to setup all-play leagues.

having the option to have a league where you can have two matchups per week instead of 1.

In fantasy football, usually there are 13 weeks of regular season weeks and 3 weeks of playoffs afterwards. If there's an option to have matchups a week, so with 13 weeks, there would be a total 26 games played in the regular season. Can be more challenging and more fun.
YES!!! I came on to this forum to make this exact suggestion. So glad to see it's already on here. Top half of the league gets a Win and Bottom half gets a Loss. This way the standings still have the standard wins/loss record. Then in the playoffs the same format continues. Top 2 records get a bye. 4 active playoff teams play and the top 2 scorers for the week advance to the semis. The format continues until the finals. I have been doing H2H leagues for years and have seen some weak teams make the playoffs just because they had a "lucky" schedule. This format keeps the league as fair as possible by rewarding the true top teams each week.
Would love to see this as an option in 2017!!! Thanks so much Yahoo if you can make this happen.

Plus 3 on this one. I'd prefer the flexibility to do what I want with the schedule, but would give folks the option of playing 2 games per week.
I would like to keep the head to head win/loss but add a win for top half of scoring that week also.
A MUST for 2017!
Each team plays against their whole League each week, so your weekly record (for a 12 team) could look like 10-1 (if you beat every teams score that week except one), etc.
Then cumulatively it will provide a very accurate overall record at the end of the year to represent the true strength of what type of team you put out there.

This seems too easy for Yahoo not to offer as an option! Lets do this Yahoo!!!!!

Doubleheader - We would like to have the option of playing a double header on some weeks so that we play each team an even number of times.
Scott Betteker commented
This is a great idea and something that has been shared by managers in our long time league. Currently, the only way to capture this is to track the league outside of the web based service, which is super unappealing. When a manager is scoring the most points but coming up against people have career weeks, the bitterness is palpable. The head-2-head matchup keeps it more consistent with real football, while the top 5 scoring eliminates some of the randomness.
We did an exercise and checked a previous year's results and found that the same top 4 still would have made the playoffs, but we didn't check every year.
