Change the way players status' are listed
Myself and others in my league are constantly frustrated when we have injured players on our roster that have been ruled out by the team, and yet on Yahoo, every week after the games, the status changes from out, to Questionable, even when the team has said they will be out several weeks. For example, this week, I have Leornard Fournette, he's been out for several weeks and the team has already publicly stated he will not play till after the bye week. I have moved him to an IR spot and picked up a fill in player, but of course, come tuesday, Yahoo changes him to questionable again, so now he is no longer IR eligible, so it locks my roster from making any changes until I either drop a player off my roster, or just wait until he gets changed back to OUT. I don't think a players status should change from OUT, until the player is actually expected to play. This makes roster management practically impossible week in and week out and gives you a disadvantage to all of the other teams that don't have an injured player. Also, along the same lines, why is Leveon Bell listed as OUT!! The way yahoo works, a player listed as out is IR eligible. So now the Bell owner is able to just stash him in an IR spot all season long, and for some reason, his status stays at OUT every week, regardless of rumours of his return. It is ridiculous that a team can hold a player in an IR spot who is perfectly healthy and just refuses to play, and guys like myself who own Fournette, or others who have Dalvin Cook or anyone else who has suffered multiple game injuries, are stuck waiting till late in the week, when all the best pickups are gone from free agency before we can make any moves. Figure it out Yahoo!

Yes, please change this. I'm always having problems with this.
This! This same issue is one of the most frequent comments on this forum, and yet Yahoo ignores it.
Alternate solution: allow Q and D players to be used in the IR slot!

Agreed! Aj Green is definitely missing regular season games and is down as questionable. But yet, Elderman is listed as out when he only has a bad thumb. Yahoo burnt me with this last year.
