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 like the Nov.6 comment that suggests the top 4 teams get a win, the middle 2 teams get a tie, and the bottom 4 teams get a loss.
Thomas, your idea would be an improvement.
Even better, the top 4 teams could get a win, the middle 2 a tie, and the bottom 4 a loss.
Even better, you could have every team play every team every week.
Even better, you could use Total Points Scored during the season to rank the teams.
I agree with the Nov.19 comment from greg.
It makes more sense to me than the "Top 5" idea presented here.

Please implement this for the 2016/2017 Fantasy season. Thank you!
Why not combine both? Double Headers with this system.
We should have the ability to play double headers any week.
If we want to play double headers the entire season, go for it. If just in week 13, that should be possible too.
Please increase your functionality. Yahoo has the best GUI, but is like 10 years behind (not exaggerating) many other ffl sites (not mainstream).

I kept track of this manually in my league and it made barely a blip on the standings. It's nice in theory but fairly worthless in practice.
i'd like the head to head be against the entire league each week. in a 10 team league the high score should get 10 that week in the standings, 2nd place gets a 9, down to the worst team getting a 1. the standings points are cumulative for the year. fantasy points are the tiebreaker. every week each team has the opportunity to get the high score.
AFFL TOP 5 STANDINGS AFTER 10 WEEKS
1. Badgers..................8-2......1147 points
2. *Squad Deep*.........8-2......1111 points
3. Landsharks.............7-3......1010 points
4. radicals...................5-5......1060 points
5. DEFCON X..............5-5......1020 points
6. Gorilla Monsoon......5-5......928 points
7. oilers.......................4-6......923 points
8. Penndel Bob...........4-6......917 points
9. Roids.......................3-7......979 points
The above standing is based on the TOP 5 scores every week or 50/50 scoring system. as you can see the records and standings resemble the standard head to head or better yet the random schedule standings. There will never be any undefeated teams. Last year three times the the 9th highest scoring team beat the only team it could beat the 10th & worst highest scoring team while the 2nd & 3rd highest scoring team has lost to the highest scoring team a few times this year. TOP 5 or 50/50 is the only fair way since you have absolutely no control over your opponents score. Yahoo please offer us the TOP 5 scoring system...PLEASE....I'm tired of manually entering the TOP 5 every week.
From looking at the responses It is clear to me that Yahoo needs to add the 50/50 scoring option. Your customers want the top 5 scoring system. In today's world people want options to choose how to score the wins & losses in their leagues. Yahoo be a leader and be the 1st web site to offer the 50/50 scoring option. You will increase your customer base by doing so.

I hate this idea. The name of the game is beating your opponent each week. If it's all about total points, then whynnotbjustbskip the completion and skip the W/L records altogether and just tally up the points at the end of the season?

I wish Yahoo would add a double header option too.
Yahoo can you modify the wavier system where the league is not shut down till Wednesday 5am. This is boring where there can be no activity for days. Yahoo can you add feature where the league can choose a wavier system for either Monday 5am, Tuesday 5am, or Wednesday 5am. Choices are good and this way leagues could choose how long they want the wavier system for and their league frozen. Please give us choices Yahoo. The Monday and Thursday night games do not need to be frozen.
I've done the top 5 scoring format for a couple years. I manually post the winners and standings every week. The team records are the same as head to head. Currently after 8 games we have two 6-2 records four 4-4 records, three 3-5 and one 2-6. There is no such thing as undefeated teams in top 5. top 5 standings reflect the same balance as head to head, but you have to score to win and not depend on random schedule luck. also top 5 is more competitive on Sunday & Monday night games because the low scoring teams can have hope of finishing 5th and the top couple teams don't have to worry about the 2nd highest scoring team losing to the top scoring team because the random head to head schedule. Manually go back to your league and score each week giving the top 5 teams a win and you will see for yourself. I am talking from facts and a couple years of doing.
You could do better. You could give the top 4 teams a win, the 2 middle teams a tie, and the bottom 4 teams a loss.
You could do better. You could have each team play each team each week. That eliminates much more of the luck factor.
You could do better. You could use Total Points scoring for the season and not even mess with wins and losses. The truly best team in the league is the one which scores the most total points during the season.
The head to head concept is totally invalid because in fantasy football you have absolutely no control over how many points your opponent scores against you. Last year three (3) times the 9th worst scoring team beat the worst scoring team while one of those times the top scoring team beat the 2nd best scoring team. I outscored the two worst scoring team by 40 something points, but lost because I was unlucky to play against the highest scoring team. The head to head system causes stress, anxiety, and anger because I am always worried I could be playing the highest scoring team and lose while a bad scoring team beats another bad scoring team. Also if someone quits your league or neglects their team the team that is playing that team gets easy wins. A much better fantasy football scoring system would be to award the TOP 5 best scoring teams wins every week and the worst 5 scoring teams gets losses. I post the top 5 winners and standings every week. One team is 3-5 in head to head while that same team is 6-2 in top 5 scoring. Why should a TOP 5 scoring team be punished because of some random head to head schedule. Also one year I was 9-4-1 finished 1st in head to head. My team was not very good, but I was luck to play other teams that did not score well against me. I figured out my record the same year and I would have been 5-9 in top 5 scoring. The same year the overall highest scoring team went 6-8 in head to head, but would have been 11-3 in top 5 scoring. The best team did not even make playoffs just because of some random head to head schedule. Also in top 5 scoring if someone quits the league or neglects their team it does not effect the league at all because only the top 5 best scoring teams gets wins and nobody is playing directly against the team who quit posting low scores. I would like to have the option of selecting a top 5 scoring league if Yahoo could offer it.
Wow, people in the comments lack foresight. Sure, there might be more than 1 undefeated team at the end of the year in this format, but if that's teh case, then those teams would deserve to be undefeated. Tiebreakers would obviously be points scored, and then the top 4-6 teams would qualify for the playoffs with 1 week HTH elimination weeks against each other. This idea submitted is terrific and solves the problem of the 2nd highest scoring team losing to the highest scoring team just because of schedule.

I like how you call it "your idea". Matthew Berry has discussed this at length on his podcast that it's how the Stern Show League handles their scoring.
Granting commissioners the ability to edit team records would accomplish the same outcome.
I think Steven Bernier explained the problem with this rule precisely.
At the end of the season, a league could have several undefeated teams.
What a mess that would be!
