Why can you put anyone who is "OUT" in the IR spot??? You should have to be on the IR to be put in there. Like it used to be. Pretty simple concept. Why it changed to this is beyond me. Fix it please
Riley Murphy commented
I disagree. If someone is Out or IR its basically the same thing for that week. Plus many out happen last minute. You shouldn't have to drop someone because of that if it happen late sunday or Monday...especially if they are a good player.

I disagree with this one. It is one of the things I don't like about nfl.com. You could end up having to cut players due to multiple injuries.
ya, this is awful, cant flip flop back and forth IL. Once yahoo ok's IL they should stay there until they play. Totally unfair that we have to add/and drop according to this whim. Im trying to make a waiver claim and cant because TY Hilton lost his IL status.He has missed 2 straight games. Yahoo projects him to get zero points this week and already has him projected for points the week after.

No one wants to keep IR players in that slot for 8 weeks. That’s like 80% of the season. Might as well not even have an IR slot then. Keep the O... I’d include suspended players in this spot too actually
Ryan Whitley commented
i disagree, it helps manage rosters when a player is out
If yahoo changed this to be only IR, I would take my league off Yahoo. They already are terrible about changing injury designations. They've literally changed DeSean Jackson back to Q/D every frigging week for the past 6 weeks, only to change him back to O despite no one saying he'd be ready to play or even practicing. C'mon, really? And now AJ Green has been designated as out and not even travelling with the **** team, and he's still not O. Yahoo should not change a player away from O until they have practiced at least once!
Derek McDonnell commented
If you change this, which I would NOT. You will need to creat another "Inactive" position to put players.
This one correctly covers all: IR/PUP/O
Makes absolutely perfect sense to me.
Derek McDonnell commented
I believe that "O" was used as a designation so you do no have to drop a drafted or talented player just because he's hurt you have to go pick up someone temporary just for a week or so as a filler.
I would leave this alone!!
No one wants a player going through BYE WEEKS that's out for weeks and you really don't know when they are coming back.
Just like the real NFL, if a player is OUT and not playing that week, they do not activate them on their 45 man game day roster, they are inactive.
So this is our inactive position because they are not playing that week.

exactly what I came here to post. Please update this Yahoo!
Derek Stout commented
Gallup is OUT 2-4 weeks yet still tagged as Q...can you make him O so we can put him in our IR spot before waivers? Thank you!

@Jack Lynn I agree in general - however this isn’t something that Yahoo should do midseason (which is what they did) since Gordon owners took him with the assumption he would be able to go to IR since that’s how it was in the past (and even for most of week 1). Yahoo should make this change after the season and make sure everyone’s aware of the change
Completely agree with Seth Heller. Ludicrous move from Yahoo
Seth Heller commented
Melvin Gordon should be IR eligible as long as he is holding out.
Yahoo has reclassified him from being IR eligible heading into week 1 to Not Active, thus not IR eligible, leaving his owners with a decision of whether or not to forgo roster transactions in order to preserve his IR status.
This is inconsistent with the way Yahoo treated Le'Veon Bell last season during his holdout, as he was IR eligible all season. Many yahoo fantasy managers spent early to mid-round picks on Gordon under the impression that if he holds out he can be stashed on IR based off of precedent set last year with Bell.
What is even more mind-boggling is that yahoo did not classify Bell as "Not Active" last year when he technically was not even under a NFL contract. Yet, here we are with Gordon being listed as Not Active yet he is a Reserved player per the official depth chart of LA Chargers.
Why isn't Guice elgible to placed on the IR ye?. Would be great for this to happen ASAP to be able to pick some up for tonight's waiver bids.
Jack Lynn commented
Melvin Gordon is not injured and should not be able to be on IR. The out designation is not always for injured players and IR should only be for injured players. This is an unfair advantage for the Melvin Gordon owner and should be fixed
Michael Porter commented
I agree, I can't pickup a waiver wire guy because Gordon is in my IR slot and the game is already over for this week
michael dawson commented
Yahoo tells me Melvin is no longer eligible for my IR slot.
Last year Leveon Bell sat out and was eligible for IR all year long. How is Melvin Gordon any different.
Rick VanBuskirk commented
I noticed in our leagues that we have an IR spot, this year you can put a player that is OUT in your IR spot, this needs to be rectified, a manager that takes Risks during the draft should NOT be rewarded with an extra bench spot to pick up additional players because they can put Gordon, Zeke, or AJ in their IR spots. PLEASE FIX
Jonathan Zegadlo commented
i think you should only be able to put a player in the IR slot that was on your team in a regular capacity...not someone you could just pick up and stow
Voodoo Chicks commented
Several years back, Yahoo used the IR slot only for season ending IR. It got changed because people complained that they wanted more flexibility, like ESPN. Yahoo gave them what they want.
