Allow Best Ball Scoring
Give leagues the ability to use Best Ball Scoring. (Start your optimal lineup) This way you are allowed to set up Draft Only Best Ball leagues. There are other websites that offer them but would enjoy being able to use the Yahoo Fantasy App for that type of league.

Would be great to have best ball optimal lineups option. Still allows teams to do adds, drops, trades, etc like normal, but lineup setting is based on each week's optimal lineup, automatically set by Yahoo.
Come on Y! When's the last time you introduced a truly new feature requested by this community. For a market leader, these shouldn't be difficult features to add...

By having the scripting exist, you could also use the data in Recaps for all League Formats. "Even This Player's optimal lineup would not have won this week!" "This Player would have to have picked his lineup perfectly to have stood a chance!" "You beat your Opponent, even though he started his best lineup possible!"

If you do this you will have to let me join more leagues on one account, because I will do a lot of these! Like, hundreds. There was another site years ago that had free best ball drafts and it was very popular. It makes mocks meaningful and it makes leagues less time-consuming.
Had to use MyFantasyLeague for this. And I hate MyFantasyLeague...

It should be an option at the creation of the league, Yahoo doesn't have to modify the line up, just determine which qualified player in a required spot has the most points and that goes into the total. This is a newer concept (to me anyway) but I could see players joining 1 or 2 additional leagues just for this reason/option.
