Schedule/Scoring Formats - 'Doubleheaders vs league score median'.
Each week, the median fantasy points of all teams in the league is calculated by taking the middle number in a sorted list of scores of each team. Each team would get a win if they beat the league median and a loss if they lose to it.

We have a 12-team league and we play a 16-game schedule (haven't added the 17th game yet). There are 2 divisions and we play each team in our division twice and each team in the other division once...it's perfect because that allows us 3 weeks for our playoffs. Weeks 15-16-17. For several years I have tried to get Yahoo to install doubleheader options for their leagues but nothing ever happens. We plan on adding the 17th game next season but reducing the playoffs from 6 teams to 4 teams. Here is how it will work...we have 2 doubleheaders, the first one is week 4 and the 2nd one is week 15. We chose those weeks to avoid the bye weeks so each team is at full strength. We have been using doubleheaders now for 5 years and it helps to create balance of scheduling, each team plays their divisions opponents twice and the other division once (next season with the extra game one team in the other division will be played twice). It's helps to keep our league just like the NFL in the # of game splayed....afterall this is all about having fun and the more games you play the more fun it is....right? It creates a lot of extra work for the commissioner, having to update the standings by hand each week but this way no one can cry about who has the tougher schedule or weaker schedule....it keeps balance and I'm all about keep balance in our leagues. I am more than happy to help anyone who wishes to install doubleheaders into their leagues....just email me. firstname.lastname@example.org. I've been doing this for 44 years and we have everything down to a tee. Steve S. League #46751 Safety Blitz

Please add option for 2 Win League / Doubleheader System.
Joe Cioffi commented
This would be a great addition. We are considering moving our league to sleeper app b/c they have this function, but if you guys add it, then no need to move the league. We are happy with everything else.
PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE!

I have used Yahoo for Fantasy Football since 2006. I really do not want to have to switch Fantasy platforms, however Yahoo needs to take action on this. I vaguely remember that I was able to adjust the Win/Loss record manually in the past, and now I cannot find that commissioner tool anymore.
If Yahoo is unable to create League Median format, please give us the option to go in and adjust the Win/Loss record manually. I know that other platforms have the option with this type of format, and I really don't want to have to switch my league over to that. Thanks,

Very Important, please help Yahoo!
Stephen A Foltin commented
Please please please update Yahoo so that you can do two win/loss a week system. This will allow a team to get one win/loss for their head to head match up as well as one win/loss for finishing in top half of league. ESPN does this and I will have to switch to them if you don’t.

We need this! This year did it for me. A team who was in 9th in point scored finished 3rd in the standings and the teams that were 2nd and 3rd in points score didnt make the playoffs. Playing two opponents per week or an opponent and league average fixes this. Please make the change for 2023.
Considering moving our league to ESPN if yahoo cannot add this feature.

Stop gathering feedback and mark this as planned. It's been over a year!!! Do something.
Isn't the whole point to attract people to your product and not have them leave? You need to have this ready by 2023.
Sean Sand commented
Yessss! Just as long as there is a way to combine this with head to head matchup.
For example, in my 12 team league, if I score a high score of 152pts but lose the head to head matchup 152-164. But lets say I was the 3rd highest score of the week I'd have a 1-1 record after that week.
Basically you can end the week

Please add this feature for 2023. Helps mitigate a bad schedule. We are looking to migrate the league to Sleeper if it is not available.
Seth Rataiczak commented
Yes, would love to see this
Cameron Dunlap commented
Pls do this for 2023.
Only way to fight back against the randomness of the schedule. I get this can be a game of luck no matter what but we have to quit penalizing teams who are solid but have the WORST schedule luck.
Our entire league couldn't care less. Let a few leave, Sleeper bites anyway. We aren't going anywhere
Andrew Fowler commented
Our whole league is looking at moving to the sleeper app because of this. We won't be the only ones if it doesn't happen for 2023 season.

It would be awesome having this for points league. It would award teams with a bad matchup but good scoring
Mike Tavaroli commented
Please add this. Our league will move if not added.
Bryan Teagle commented
Pls add the median suggestion......
But also pls add the ability to schedule ACTUAL DOUBLEHEADERS where a team has MORE THAN 1 FANTASY MATCHUP in a week. This can't be too much effort for you Yahoo, as the scoring module would be the same, just more of the existing Source Code.
This is the primary reason i don't move some of my leagues to Yahoo.
Justin Durham commented
Please add this feature! As commish, we might consider switching to a different platform next year if Yahoo doesn't add doubleheaders.
Conor Maley commented
Would be very beneficial for 12 and 14 team league schedules without divisions. Play everyone once, then do league median scoring (we call it battle royale) 3 or 1 time(s)

Please add this!
