How can we make Fantasy Football better?

Better, more detailed league history.

I would love to be able to go back into my league's history and see individual player's point totals from every week, not just the overall matchup scores. I'm making a record book and have lost 5 season's worth of player's weekly scores. I can access standings, which helps but not how well each player did on a weekly basis.

    I love my League, and the past few seasons have written a newsletter, where I would highlight achievements, playoff chances, entertaining editorials, and much more. I often refer to the League 'Records' Page for insight. I am disappointed in a few things: I cannot remove single entries, and I can only see the top record.

    Example: in one year, a guy came in, set his lineup week two, and left. Obviously, as BYEs and injuries took place, his average weekly score, rushing and receiving tallies, everything, went down. This should be able to be edited and removed, as it does not reflect the League activity, and will forevermore be displayed as a record (in a bad way).

    Example: I wish I could see individual records, for every team AND year. I wish I could report that "this was X Team's highest rushing total since Week 2 of 2105," or, "the whole league hasn't gotten this many kicks since Year Four / Week Four!" It's currently structured where I can see this year's current leader in many categories, and the sole leader from the life of the league. I wish I could go deeper than that. I also wish I could research top 5 instead of JUST the leader in every individual category.

    For us number nerds.

    Totally agree with this suggestion -- there's no reason to not be able to get detailed week by week scoring for prior years.

    Go to your fantasy profile page, the one with your trophies and medals.

    Find the league from last year and click on it. The default first page is the playoff bracket from last year.

    This is my #1 wish. It would not likely get a lot of use by most users, but for me this is gold. I have a database for the past 10 fantasy seasons that I personally maintain. I include overall W/L/T, Pts For, Pts against, Moves, entry fee, payout, and place. This allows me to have some Excel fun. It would be an incredible addition if we could export the head to head results after each season is over. I'm less concerned with the weekly stats and more concerned with head to head results. If we can't export, then Yahoo should at very least be able to state with each match up the overall record vs. the owner that we face that week. It would greatly help with the smack talk in our league!

    I just do not understand why I am not able to click into box scores from past seasons, as Shane mentioned in his initial suggestion. Clearly, the data is there to provide this functionality as ESPN has done this for at least 2 years. For long-standing leagues, it definitely is nice to be able to access player stats and point totals by week.

    I love league history, I wish I could see the player scores of each game so I could use the history to see the best offense and IDP defense of each year

    Pre-2011 history should be available. If MFL.com is able to import yahoo info to generate league history stats going back to 1980, there is simply no reason yahoo cannot make this available. Or at least add a manual import option for private leagues.

    The previous season history that shows up on the main league page is not present. This is typically a drop down selection by year. Our league dates back to 2005 and the history is gone. If this can't be fixed this might be a good time to switch our league to another fantasy football provider.
