How can we make Fantasy Football better?

More Roster Spots

we want to open a league with defensive players, with just 30 roster spots, we cant really do that, we are going to use ESPN instead because they do 40, if it were 40 or 45 spots we would gladly use yahoo instead

        I have made this suggestion several times. 30 Roster spots are not enough for an IDP Dynasty league. I think yahoo needs to expand there max roster to at least 35.

        @kelly

        Actually, you would be incorrect. I'm not connected to Yahoo! in anyway.

        Anonymous,

        Your comments has no logic. The fact that your handle is Anonymous, tells that you are from within the Yahoo corporate structure.

        The ST points go to the D, and the K and P return setting numbers go to the D and to IDP players if your league uses that setting.

      • KellyKelly commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Actually, it is not DST, it is under the "Kick & Punt Returning" settings. My point is the positions, more that the scoring, to make Special Team more relevant, along with the Offense Team and the Defense Team.

        The option to count return yards is available in private leagues. Also, the TDs scored by the K and P returner count for the DST already, and if your rostered WR, like Beasley with Dallas, scores on a kick return, he gets the 6 points.

        In IDP leagues, if one of your DBs returns a kick for a TD, they get the 6 points and yardage.

        In order to keep Special Teams relevant, I propose adding two positions:

        KR = Kick Returner
        PR = Punt Returner

        Each NFL team designate a player, usually a wide receiver, slotted on its special team roster. Adding the above two roster positions will allow leagues to utilize the return yards and the return touchdowns into their grand scheme of their football strategy.

        The above will provide a valuable option for league owners, whereas, some wide receivers and runnings backs may be on the low end of their respective depth chart, but may be on the top end of the special team depth chart.

        If IDP's can be included into the roster positions, so should special team positions that can provide some scoring potential for team owners and allow leagues take full advantage of of most of the NFL positions.

        Just make it have no limit or like 40 0r 50 for super deep roster leagues and super shallow leagues (8 team) that want to have many starting positions to increase the difficulty for the leagues that are a little shallow.

        Please allow expanded rosters so we can continue to use yahoo fantasy football....we had to leave just because of this

        Agree so much. Already moved our 12 year old dynasty league to MFL after we increased our total roster size this offseason. MFL is garbage. Please yahoo, increase roster size to 35 so we can come back!

      • PP commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Increase maximum roster size to 35. Moved our 12 year old dynasty league to MFL this year because we increased our total roster over 30. MFL sucks. Please Yahoo, increase roster size!

      • ben hinkleben hinkle commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Allow more than 30 players, we had to go to another site because of the 30 player max and our league voted to allow 32 players.

        We didn't want to leave but the yahoo limitations forced us out.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Just need to have more roster positions. If you already have the criteria for 30, what is a few more? My league needs 31 and your system only allows 30. I don't see an area to cut from my league, so I think your system should handle more positions.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I wish I could give all 50 of my votes to this one. 30 players is so extremely restrictive for dynasty players. This is the single reason why we may be migrating away from Yahoo! this year, and that is after being a loyal fantasy player on this site for a decade. Just do it already, I'm not even sure why this policy is in place.

        With more players trying dynasty and IDP it makes no sense to cap the roster size at such a low level, at least in private leagues. Keeping it as it is will only cause people to move to other services. C'mon Yahoo, increase roster size and support those of us playing IDP dynasty!

        My two leagues are at dynasty level. What we have been seeking for the past few years is an expanded roster AND a Developmental Squad of perhaps 5-8 players. The expanded roster makes for true NFL depth.

        The Developmental Squad would allow managers to hold on to rookies or other fringe/2nd-tier players -- QBs,for instance -- to be slowly "groomed" over a two-year period while awaiting their "break-out". At the end of the 2-year period, the player will need to be added to the regular roster or waived.

        Please expand before ESPN opens their fantasy football leagues or I will be using ESPN this year.
