The prize leagues were horrible this year. Allow for 12 teams and in 2022 why are we still doing waivers? And why if I drop a player I can't put in a claim? This season has been so unfulfilled that if there's no FAB next year, I won't play on this site. Waivers are flat out trash for NFL. Competitive balance is capped. Benches should be 8 players as well. Also, if a player scores a TD and is on special teams, why don't they get the points? This product LITERALLY hasn't changed since 2008 despite the vast changes in the game. 0 outta 5 stars for this year's product. Loyalty is gone now, we need a major upgrade or I am out. FAAB, more teams, 8 bench spots or higher, scoring revisions to D/ST players scoring TDs.

Please go back to your projection stats that are simple, e.g. 85 projected yards, 2 TDs, 7 receptions, & 15 total points. Drop this 5.5 or 9.5 pts, 1.3 receptions or 85.3 yards. That's too confusing, unnecessary, and detailed for the fantasy player. Return back to the way it was in previous years. This year was NOT an improvement.

Agree with adding a punter position for net yards, inside the 20 and inside the 5.
I'd also like to see, for the Kicker, a stat line showing their longest FG of the year.
Adding one more stat line would be a simple task. Kickers should be rewarded same as any other skill position. Not many have the confidence of their team to allow them to try from their opponents side of the field. Over 40 yds is 4 pts, 50+ is 5, 60+ should be 6. No brainer in my opinion.
Regarding kicker points: Yahoo added the option of accounting for "Field Goals Total Yards". So I award all field goals made (FGM) 3 points regardless of distance and the have the yardage option set at 40 yards per point (so a 40 yard FG is still 4 points, but a 45 yard field goal is 4.13 points). This is a precise method for scoring field goals whether they are 21 yards or 61 yards without kicker scoring getting out of hand by awarding 6 points for 60 yard field goals, the same as we award for touchdowns.

Kickers are getting better, so a 50 yard kick is more like what a 40 yard kick use to be 15 to 20 years ago. And another tier for kicking points: 50 to 59 and 60+.
Henry Richards commented
why is my team not Scoring. admittedly I did not put Ga
no in the kicking spot. but Ended up putting a kicker in later. I should have still scoring even with 8 players
Joseph Espiritu commented
Agree with Rich on 60 yarder field goals being 6 points! They are rare but should factor into the increment of: 20+ yards and under 40 = 3 points, 40 yards and under 50 =4, and 50 yards and under 60 yards should = 5. Logically 60 + yards should be 6 points. Changing the code would not be that difficult.
Paul Caraccio commented
add a stat line for 60+ yard FGs. my league does 3 pts for up to 39 yards, 4 for 40-49, and 5 for 50+, we'd like to do 6 for 60+
This would be great!

yahoo needs to check fantasy scoring on L A Rams. 24 pts against should be 0 Pts not 1
Edward Zaleski commented
yahoo needs to check L A rams def scoring. Scoring for L A rams def pts should be 0 for 24 pts
I would like to see tab for league rules.
Alonso Cavazos commented
Rashaad penny fumble wasn’t added to stats

I am considering developing an efficiency based scoring custom league next year. Most of my ideas Yahoo provides a way to implement but one idea I had was to give -.1pts per target to receivers. This would reward WR's who tend to get more separation for easier completions, make contested catches, and avoid drops. It would also be a .6 point ppr league so you would essentially still get a half point if you catch the ball. But it's a stat that yahoo already tracks so it should be very easy to implement as a custom option in leagues. I'm marking this "critical" just because I would really like to implement it next year and I know that it would take some time to implement on Yahoo's end.

Smaller increments for 'yards allowed' and 'points allowed'. Add passes defended, fumbles forced, and ESCPECIALLY punts forced.
Ross Marcinkowska commented
Defensive Scoring and LD and RD positions would be a GREAT feature to add as well!!
Alexander Thiel commented
Adding a punter position and stat line for net punt yards and coffin corner kicks. Would be a nice new position to add
zack chaps commented

Matt Danko commented
Allow the option to create a weekly head to head categories league for fantasy football, like you can in all of the other fantasy sports yahoo offers.
