Injury Designations - Commissioner can customize IR eligible injury designations
This setting would give the commissioner the power to change what injury designations are eligible for IR. For example, the commissioner could elect to only allow players with the IR designation into IR roster slots. They could also allow players with D (doubtful) to be IR eligible.
Commissioners would be able to toggle the following designations as IR eligible;
P - Probable
Q - Questionable
D - Doubtful
O - Out
IR - Injured reserve
SUSP - Suspended
NA - Not active
COVID-19 - COVID-19
Currently commissioners can't toggle what designations are IR eligible. O (out), COVID-19 and IR (injured reserve) are the only designations that are IR eligible.

This issue is extremely IRKSOME to say the least. I have emailed yahoo 4-5 times in the last ten days and they keep giving me the politicians run around. stating a bunch of qualifications and regulations. basically a bunch of BUL-SH-T!!!! they really need to do something about it. I like Yahoo that's why I continue to play here but they are failing at basic things here !!! every week after the games are played they change the players injury designation making them ineligible and handcuffing your ability to make any roster moves if you want to pick someone up you have to drop a player you want or could trade if you had time and I'm good so any player dropped from my roster is instantly swooped up. GET IT THE PHUCK TOGETHER PLEASE!!!!!
thank you kindly

I sent an e-mail to yahoo last week about how they keep changing a guy's designation after waivers run every week even though there was no way the guy was gonna play. great now you can use it for a guy who is OUT not necessarily on the official NFL IR, which is the way other sites have done it for years. but you should really just leave the designation alone until the guy actually sees the field. now this week waivers haven't even run yet and they are doing it. so now i will have to drop players to even make a waiver claim. when i sent the email last week they sent me a reply with all kinds of sh-t everyone already knows didn't answer a **** thing. now instead of resolving the issue they go and make it worse. like anyone expects Eric Decker to play this week as of now!!!! #asinine

In the past, Yahoo has not allowed players into the IR spot who weren't on IR. A change like that should have meant notifying leagues. It's become an issue in our league right now, and I don't understand Yahoo allowing it.
Right now the IR designation is Yahoo default only where players eligible are IR, PUP or Out. I would like the ability to customize who is eligible for this designation. In our league do not include players listed as "Out" and we do include players that are listed as "SUSP". We now have to manually police this. If the commissioner can customize the IR designation then we could do this systemically. Please add this functionality for 2017!

The IR spot should be limited to NFL designations only. Or have an "IR/PUP" spot but right now, the fact that you can put someone who is "Out" in IR is ludicrous. This should be changed immediately.
I can see from the comments that people have gone back and forth on this but don't, and won't, understand the rationale for being able to put someone who is "out" on IR.

It serves the same purpose as the inactive spots on an NFL roster.

Currently, you can put any player who is Injured Reserve (IR), Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) or just simply Out (O) in the IR spot. The first two are appropriate but you should not be able to stash a player who is just out for that week (O) in your IR spot as it frees up a roster spot.
Good example is a guy in our league stashed Gronk in his IR spot week 1 and didn't have to dump a good player he drafted to pick up another TE.

Just to clarify for the comments below - I'm not proposing to delete the IR position - just create a position for "Out". For the second comment, yes, if you have 5 deep on your bench missing a week is no big deal. But, if you're running a league with only 1 or 2 total bench spots, you end up cutting players just to deal with bye weeks or other issues.
The IR slot is key for dynasty/legacy leagues.
I strongly disagree. Dealing with players that are out only 1 week for whatever reason is part of game.
Jim English commented
Create a roster spot for "Out", which covers suspension, injury, bye weeks, or any circumstance where a player will not play. Having the IR slot is almost useless, as most IR players are usually out for extended periods. If trying to run a league with minimal bench positions, this would allow more flexibility during bye weeks, yet keep FA full of viable options vs having teams be 5+ deep in bench positions to deal with such issues. I believe you could run a great league with only 1-2 bench slots if you have the "Out" slots as well.
