Prize Leagues - Full PPR
This change would have a full PPR (point per reception) scoring category. Currently the only option is 1/2 PPR.
Pro leagues follow the public league format, which does not have PPR.

PPR proleagues for sure

you need PPR pro leagues. It is way funner!
You can start or join a private league where this option is available.

A vast majority of fantasy football players play ppr. You are alienating most of the fantasy football community. It will bring so many more new players to the site, an keep long time yahoo fantasy users happy.
PPR leagues are becoming more popular would be nice to have the instant Yahoo Public leagues the same way it is for Standard Leagues

I agree, i also want to see larger buy-ins/entry fees!
I agree 1000,000,000,000,000,000,000 percent its crazy,, I don't want to leave Yahoo but I might I do 4-5 leagues every year then I want to do pro league and it sucks..
its a major stat not accounted for.. its a must. if they don't I mite go somewhere else.. how can you not.. I would like to hear why they havnt...???
Flex spots, PPR (option) and 12 team leagues, should be the standard in Yahoo's pro leagues by now. It's way too watered down with 10 teams, and makes it anyone's game each week, thus, taking away the competition factor of people actually doing their research and building a complete team (and having the ability to utilize that complete team).
In short, It completely wastes talent left on the bench.
*Please listen to the masses and incorporate these changes, instead of making minimal changes each off-season.
I don't understand why they don't have a PPR pro league yet, PPR format is the predominate one that is used now and a majority of leagues use it now instead of the standard format. So, why not have one?

YES YAHOO PLEASE ALLOW A FLEX SPOT! ITS RIDICULOUS I HAVE A PERFECTLY GOOD RB I WOULD LIKE TO START AND HAVING TO START SOME LOUSY WR. OR GETTING TO THE LATER ROUNDS OF THE DRAFT AND THERES TONS OF SOLID RBS AVAILABLE BUT NO WRS. I WILL NOT PLAY YAHOO FANTASY UNTIL THIS CHANGES, DESPITE THE BETTER THAN AVERAGE PAYOUTS
Get a clue Yahoo ... standard went out in 1987 ... one year after we started in 1986 ... Get PPR pro leagues now!
Pro leagues should have those filters.
First you choose size: 10 or 12
Then you choose scoring: standard, 1ppr, .5ppr (which you NEED)
Then you choose pass TD: 4, 5, 6
Then you choose bench size: standard (16) , large (18) , "expert (20)"
I would guarantee that with more customization options, you would get hundreds of thousands more teams/leagues.
If free leagues can be custom, why can't pro leagues be to some extent? Yahoo would WRECK the competition with even slightly custom-scoring leagues.
The scoring settings from FanDuel (.5 ppr, 5pt passing TDs), is the BEST SCORING in my opinion. It should be available in pro leagues.
2 rb, 3 wr, and a flex
mind your business. My league wants to have 1 spot for PPR AND give points to first down catches. 14 guys in the league, we'd like to do it the way we want.
Who makes first downs?
Giving a bonus for making a first down increases the points scored by the top players with little increase for average and below average players.
I'd prefer to see return yardage count as much as rushing, passing, and receiving yardage. That change would increase the number of players worth owning.
It'd be nice to institute this as a check box so you can add it to whatever position you wanted.
That will open combinations up. My league wants a WR/TE/RB PPR Spot. Along with a First Down Catch Stat.
A PPR Spot, NOT PPR League.
Our League, 10 years running, would like a PPR Flex spot. This would allow you to start a player to receive PPR points, ulnike the rest of the league. This adds a wildcard type effect and may increase your players ability. we do a 14 man league and it'd be fun since we get pretty deep into the league.
Another feature with the PPR Spot, allow a full point for First Down in PPR's. If a player gets a catch, we may designate it as a half point. But if he catches it and it's a first down, it will be a full point.
Really Enjoy the growth Yahoo is providing in Fantasy and I feel a PPR "Spot" would really take off. Especially with a First Down Stat now.
