Rosters - Allow Taxi Squad slots for NA players
Requests to allow Taxi Squd roster slots for NA players.

Need a third non-active roster spot type (besides Bench and IR) for Taxi Squad/Rookie Squad. Beyond that (or perhaps as a workaround), the commissioner should have the ability to flag any player with any special designation necessary to allow certain players into an IR or Taxi Squad slot.
Our league allows FAAB bidding on these players to sign them away from the current owner, and currently we have to do everything manually using an extra Bench spot. Not sustainable. Owners are forgetting the rules, which gives the owners already grumpy about the rule more ammo to complain. Everyone would be on board if this was automated.
A complimentary nice-to-have feature would be a way to filter on rookies in the draft room.

Have a third bench category called reserve or rookie contract for dynasty leagues

It has been at least a decade since our league has suggested Supplemental Squads and more defined roster positions -- WILL (weakside LB), Mike (middle LB), Sam (strongside LB), SS (strong safety), FS (free safety).
I just noticed a comment on a different site (Reddit) that suggests some fantasy platforms do have supplemental squads. We've always chosen Yahoo because of it's user-friendly platform, but perhaps you're no longer the 'king of the hill' in fantasy.
I'd like to get a legitimate response relative to these suggestions that I may determine whether my leagues should remain in Yahoo. My league IDs are: #3422 and #3427.

A Taxi Squad is non active roster list of players you can stash for the future. You can customize that a player has to be on a taxi squad for a certain amount of time
Before they can be on the active roster.
