"Victory Point" Based Standings Option
Similar to another idea but allow commissioner to create a custom victory point based league standings. For example, in a 10 team league, something like 10 victory points for a win and an additional point for every team you would've beat that week. For example:
In scoring terms, Team 1 beats Team 2 and Team 9 Beats Team 10
Team 1 - 19 Victory Points (1 win + outscored 9 teams)
Team 2 - 8 Victory Points (0 Win + outscored 8 teams)
Team 9 - 11 Victory Points (1 Win + outscored 1 team)
Team 10 - 0 Victory Points (0 Win + outscored 0 teams)
It takes away some of the luck factor without completely removing it. But allow the commissioner to determine the points system.

Any chance of having a "victory points" type setting for football this year? Last season we used the typical head to head W/L and then also used each team's score vs the rest of the league: the top 6 got a W, the bottom 6 got a L. So you could go 2-0, 1-1 or 0-2 for a given week. It was great but had to be scored offline as there's no settings for this on Yahoo. Other sites offer this but we've been on Yahoo forever and want to stay, hoping it'll be an option sometime in the future!

Yes, agree here. Would be great if Yahoo could add this.
