Scoring - Team Position Points
This scoring setting credits all points scored by a specific position on an NFL team to the manager who rosters them. Most commonly, team QBs are used in this scenario. For example, if Russell Wilson gets hurt, the team that started him would get the points from Geno Smith for the rest of the game. Currently we don't offer this setting.

I'd like to see this as an option in Yahoo. You may gain some users who play in ESPN solely for their TQB (as well as Punter and Head Coach) position options. I like to do both individual QB for the risk/reward and TQB just to have a unique setting to convince managers to play in multiple leagues.
As a compromise, would this be possible? ... Allow us roster positions of "Starters" and "Backups" and, prior to kickoff, Yahoo designates quarterbacks as "SQB" or "BQB" and then managers can have fun deciding whether they want both QBs from the same NFL team to play it safe or go with the most likely backup to see action ... perhaps the backup to your weekly opponent's starter so that, if they are benched or injured, it's a win/win.

Designate on bench your back up Player QB/RB/WR. If a player is knocked out of a game, you can replace that player with a back up player and continue to score points.

I also have one question and I’m wondering why yahoo hasn’t done this yet. CBS has their site set up so that for whatever QB you start on a team so that if your QB let’s say for example gets injured in the first quarter then whoever the backup for that team is comes in and you get the backup's points for the remind of the game so that you’re not completely screwed.
So for example if you drafted Dak Prescott it calls your QB the Dallas Cowboys QB in your starting lineup. If he gets hurt at any point in the game the backup comes in automatically for your for Dallas.
This is a great feature that any fantasy player would love. So many people lose games and get screwed because the QB gets hurt during the game. Will yahoo implement this feature like CBS?

Please consider this option:
... where a manager receives stats for all QBs who play for an NFL team.
Example: If you have Kyler Murray, the Cardinals QBs and he gets hurt in the first quarter, you'll get all the points put up by his replacement(s) like Colt McCoy for the remainder of the game.
You won't have to have both Murray and McCoy on your roster. Just having one QB from a team will activate the team points.

In the player stats, add receptions, receiving yards and receiving TDs to the RBs and add rushing yards and rushing TDs to the QBs, WRs and TEs.

I have a better solution. Each team selects one Alternate from their bench every week. If a QB, RB or WR is ruled OUT in the 1st quarter of their game, the alternate is subbed in. The alternate must be from a flex position (RB, WR, TE).
The player must be ruled OUT (not questionable, but does not return), and it must occur in the 1st quarter. Think carted off, street clothes on the sideline, etc. Each manager could select the alternate every week, or if they don't make a selection, Yahoo would auto-select based on the highest projected point total of any one player on the bench.

we would use this for qb's and kickers.....
Draft QB,WR,RB,TE,K by team instead of individuals. Then there's no issues with certain individuals not playing. You could draft CLE RB, and get whoever is playing: Chubb, Hunt, Johnson, etc
This would enable persons to play without worrying about game time decisions, or IR status of a player, you'd still get points for the backups.

Give us the qb by committee option like espn does

Yahoo should have QB auto handcuff in rosters. Lost 3 qbs during games this year. lost 2 of them 3 weeks and WFT week 15 lose carr in semi's It's long over due

Add TQB as an alternative to QB. This way you don't need to waste a roster space on backup QB. Also important if QB gets hurt then you continue gaining points from backup QB. QB points value stay the same just viewing it as a team rather than individual.

If you have Mahomes on Monday night or Sunday night or sometimes just at a 1pm game and he tests positive and its announced just before you would most likely be screwed unless you rostered his two backups which would be ridiculous. Most leagues lock adds at 10am on Sundays and there probably wouldnt be any options left. In a normal season the injury report comes out a few days before.

Would love a Team QB option especially this year with Covid19. If you draft Mitchell Trubisky, you get Foles & Bray also. It would make managing your team easier during this pandemic.

You can’t have a 2 QB league with 12 teams with individual QB setting.

Team QB & K scoring
Why? A team has a QB on every play.
So if Goff were to go down you would also get Bortles points.
So now you say if that is the case If I have Gurley I should get Brown's points also? Not the case. Neither Gurley or Brown play every offensive play, but there is always a QB.
Now what about Hill in NO? You should get Brees & Hills stats. Why he is listed as a QB no one is going to start him as a QB unless it's a 20 team league.I would not allow receiving yards but with the Philly special you about have too.
Kickers (now they can always go for 2) but some will use a punter or another position you wouldn't even think about safety, linebacker if a kicker gets hurt.
So whoever kicks should go towards the kickers score because points were scored.
These are 2 positions where you don't need to draft an individual person. Again because there is always a QB & someone who kicks although a back up K is not listed on most rosters.
So is it fair if Goff gets hurt first play that a fantasy team gets 0 points at QB not really because SOMEONE played the rest of the game.
But then you say is it fair if Kupp goes down first play & gets a 0 for the game? Yes! The odds of Kupp playing every offensive play is not impossible but it is minimal.Plus Goff will throw to 5 other receivers. He is not the only receiver there is only 1 ACTUAL QB.
This would need to be predetermined with the league & commish & promotes stronger competition. If this is voted down by your league you may as well play a public league where no one plays cause that's the competition level you are getting!
You can always make that a subset of rules & the commish can adjust team points it is a good thing to do because it's rarely used.
RB, TE & WR's rarely play the entire game but there is always a QB & never a back up K.
Brad Bullers commented
Have a team QB option also called TQB
Chuck G. commented
Like ESPN, when you have your QB in the game and he gets taken out of the game (injury or just replaced) that you still get points for who ever is QBing for that team....Team QB

This is absolutely ******* stupid. no, you don't get to do this. If you want a teams QBs, then draft them all.
I think that whether you're talking about Team QB's or having your bench sub in when a starter gets injured, having a way to fill in would make Fantasy Football more like real football, and make Yahoo Fantasy Football better.

I like this idea, when the league is set up, it would either be a player league or a team league. Snake order picking by position. Commissioner would pick the order of the positions selected.
