Schedule/Scoring Formats - Guillotine League
This league type eliminates the lowest scoring team every week and sends that team's players to the waiver wire to be bid on by the remaining teams. This process continues until there is only 1 team left.

Will yahoo be having this as an option in the future?
Currently we have to do this manually, and in cash leagues, the commish can't lock a team from making lineup changes and adds/drops. I had to get Yahoo to do that after I dropped all of the team's players back into the FA pool. We need a way to set up the league specifically to have that enabled as a commissioner to lock teams from trying to add players back. Plus, to Sean's point, not have it affect the player's rating all season long when you get eliminated during the season - just a rating boost/decline at the end of the season based on where you finish in the standings

Yes, but make sure eliminated player doesnt feature any future matchups. Nobody wants their Level status affected for taking "losses" in every week after they got eliminated.

Doing one and manually this year.. Wish they had a format to do all the work in resetting points each week, dropping lowest scoring player, and adding their players to the waiver pool.. Also I cant get live scoring on my phone for points only league

Add the option for a Vampire League. Currently we have to set this up and run it manually.

Can you add the option for guillotine leagues? These are leagues where the lowest scoring team is eliminated and it’s roster is put back into the player pool to be available for waivers/free agency to the teams surviving. This happens until there is one team left
