Position Eligibility - 2022-23 Position Eligibility Requests
Requests for position eligibility updates for the 2022-23 Fantasy Football season.
Russ McDaniels commented
Taysom Hill should not be listed as a TE in fantasy football. He does not line up as a TE. He lines up as a QB and when the New Orleans Saints signed him, they signed him as a QB. This is something that should be looked into on your Fantasy Football App. Other Fantasy Football Sites list him as a QB and not a TE
Patrick Ross commented
Taysom Hill is being used as only a qb to score points yesterday. All his points were from QB slot.. he had zero receptions. He needs to be only classified as a qb… allowing him to be used as te who only scores from QB spot is an integrity issue and is allowing one team to start 2 qbs in a 1qb league
michael jay commented
Taysom Hill should not be eligible as a TE when he scores 3 rushing touchdowns and throws for another also catching zero passes and running no routes.
Sam Albright commented
Taysom Hill is designated as a quarterback/tight end as are many others in the past, when this is done it is unfair as they can be plugged into multiple slots and creates an unfair advantage. You can’t have a player taking QB snaps and in a TE slot! Either fix this issue and only designate one position per player or give the commissioner power to change the position designation (preferred).
Charlie D commented
Taysom Hill is not a TE.

These are EDGE players and while that IS NOT and official position, look at what defines the label and you will find yourself in a pool of DEs because it's so insanely obvious to see.
Theyve adjusted to a HYBRID 3-4 with *EDGE RUSHERS* or as SI's CHARGER REPORT notes: "This defense is predicted to be a 3-4 with some moving parts" aka NOT a stringent 3-4 and JUST LIKE MACK - they're going to play a little of BOTH. Ever wonder why the CHARGER website mentions his designation (former or otherwise) as either an EDGE or a DE? It's because they actually know what the heck they are talking about - I swear, you have so many players WRONGLY classified as LBs. Does he drop to 3 point stance and fiercely attack the line off snaps like a DE? YES. Does he also sometimes snap at a stand and drop back like an LB? Also, yes.
I mean if YAHOO SPORTS (aka YOU) is writing articles, noting his resume and skillset as a DE hybrid, you would THINK you would list him correctly on Fantasy.
Here are just a slew of articles listing his position CORRECTLY, all recent:
Angel Rodriquez commented
Before we even get into my request can you have whoever is running your site READ up on FB a bit so they can actually properly categorize the difference between DEs and LBs. Swear, your site is just off the rails with its designations, never seen more insane designations:
Khalil Mack should have dual LB/DE designation as he does in practically EVERY other league because THAT's what he is. Chargers don't run a standard 3-4, it's a hybrid. Chargers have him listed as an "EDGE" defender:
Does THIS look like an LB? https://twitter.com/CatsStillRule/status/1554182325008617474
And that is a term yet to officially be defined, but can refer to, yes, a DE or OLB, but the definition of WHAT they do and WHERE is most important. Even his own school has him listed CURRENTLY & CORRECTLY as a DE/OLB:
He, like MANY other edge players are NOT in their proper category and it seems like YOUR league is just completely wacked on everything. Other leagues at least make SOME sense with the dual designation but to list him as STRICTLY a LB is ridiculous. That's NOT what he is. That's NOT what he does.
Let's take a few other players, for example, all listed at EDGE, you'll notice the MAJORITY are DEs and why is that? Because of the definition of the role and what it DOES. He's a DE in a 4-3 and an OLB in a 3-4. Check out this CHARGERS list of EDGE players (which is what they have Mack listed as):
https://www.chargers.com/news/khalil-mack-linebacker-chargers-afc-west-10-insights-free-agency-2022 [IT INCLUDES: Cameron Jordan (DE), Bosa (DE), & MACK (DE)] Even his own team knows what he is.
I mean your own league has Jadeveon Clowney at DE - he and Mack are basically the same player in terms of hybrid status but you give one a DE and one an LB? Where most ALL other leagues disagree with you. Pretty sure his OWN TEAM mentions him as an EDGE (and not "LB" or "DE") because he's a hybrid player deserving both designations, as stated in this article from CHARGERS.COM mentioning his FIRST TEAM ALL PRO HONORS at DE & LB simultaneously:
A similar argument could be made of his teammate Bosa, with the Chargers running a 4-3 until this year. DE Bosa is basically STILL a DE, but in a 3-4, doing all the roles of a traditional DE as he always has, under an "EDGE" label that, well until officially adopted as a position, traditionally aligns far more with a downed lineman attacking the line and passer. Do you see Mack in 3-point sometimes? Yes. Do you see him head up sometimes? Yes. Does he play both? Yes. Is he listed as a DE still in leagues? Yes. And also an LB? Yes. And on non-official (non fantasy, article related) sites is he listed most accurately as an EDGE, though not an official designation, MOST accurately defines his hybrid role as a mix of OLB/DE in BOTH the DEFINITION of the positions (and what they DO), but also in size and mobility.
I MEAN COME ON, YOURE GOING TO PUT *ONE* position designation on THIS grouping:
completely ignoring ALL their HISTORIC roles/positions on a team or maybe do a little work and recognize - oh wait, this scheme isnt exactly traditional and this - hmmmm, maybe the roles are equally not traditional. LIVE IN THE NOW!
David Chang commented
deebo samuel should have eligibility at both wr and rb
Sean Nemeth commented
Commish should be able to edit NFL players position eligibility, I'd specifically like to change T.Montgomery to RB instead of WR
Dhaman Gill commented
Deebo Samuel needs to have RB eligibility. Clearly he is rushing more than other RB in the league
Shelby Powell commented
Deebo Samuel should have WR/RB designation. He is clearly being used as a traditional running back in the 49ers offense and has 12 rushing attempts, 105 rushing yards, and a rushing TD through two games. As a WR he only has 7 receptions, 58 receiving yards, and 0 receiving TDs. If you also take into consideration what Deebo did running the ball last year, it is clear that he is being used as a RB just as much, if not more than he is being used as a WR.
ROBERT SCHWALB commented
A the commissioner of a league that’s been going for over 25 years I’ve tried to set up a league that plays multiple styles of offences. Standard, Run & Shoot, Wish Bone and Two TE’s. Thus our league is set up to start 2 WR’s, 1 RB, 1 TE, a WR/RB position, and a WR/RB/TE position. By listing a player at “TWO POSITIONS”, Say a WR/RB or QB/TE. You open the door for one owner in a league to run a two QB offence or even a four RB offence. These are not offences played in the NFL. Thus giving one team owner a advantage over the others.
Joe Parisi commented
Deebo Samuel needs to be listed as a WR/RB. He has rushed for 12 TDs in his brief career and already has 1 TD this season. He leads the 49ers in rushing after week one and now that Eli Mitchell is on the shelf for the next two months, Deebo will be in line for even more work out of the backfield. He NEEDS to have the RB designation as well as WR. Make it happen Yahoo. Don't let ESPN beat you to this. Do the right thing.
ROBERT SCHWALB commented
please do away with the two position eligible designation in football. this can cause one team too have a unfair advantage over the others. giving that owner the opportunity to play four RBS in standard leagues while all the other owners can only play three. Or playing two QB's instead of one. this causes a problem in my long term league year every year. Tayson Hil is a ensample QB/TE
Dhaman Gill commented
Deebo Samuel should be a rb
Saqib Razvi commented
2022 Week 1 rushing: 8/52/1 with more rushing stats on the way (mitchell injury). Change to WR/RB eligibility.
Samer Kazem commented
Von Miller as DE. Same thing happened to Robert Quinn who has been updated.
everett moreland commented
JJ Watt is a DE as well. That designation is coming from the Steelers official site. He is a DE. There are hundreds of complaints that you need to read on his profile page regarding this matter.
Chachi Gerber commented
C. Patterson needs to have RB/WR tag! Please and thank you!
Ryan Williams commented
Von Miller changed from LB to DE. He switched schemes to a 4-3, he’s now a DE.
