[Rosters] New roster positions
Requests for new roster positions such as Punters, DEF/K roster slots, etc.
Carlos Morales commented
Optional addition of the Punter position. Punter score will depend on the final position of the ball on the field after a punt. For example, if the punted ball ends within the zero and the five yardline can earn more points than a punt that ends between the five and the ten yardline, etc.
A blocked punt cand sustract points to the punter.

Additional Positions: Punters, Offensive Linemen, Team Offense, Teams/Head Coaches (w/ scoring categories for Home Wins, Road Wins, Home Losses, Road Losses, Home/Road Ties, OT Wins/Losses, Points For, Points Against, Yards For, Yards Against, etc.)
I would like to see public leagues have individual defensive players, rather than a team defense. A team roster would have all of the offensive players it has now, plus the kicker and IR spots, but instead of a team defense, it would have 2 defensive linemen, 2 linebackers, and 2 defensive backs.

Allow user to setup positions for flex. Make Kickers and Def available as well.
Erik Willyard commented
Please add punters
Adam Ball commented
Add Offensive Lineman!
Ben Riegger commented
We need this asap
Scuf A commented
DEF/K flex spot please!
Elias Pearson commented
Please add punters like ESPN does now.
TE continues to be/has been a weak position when it comes to depth in fantasy football. Its no longer fair for all teams involved to be required to start a TE each week. Yahoo currently offers WR/RB/TE and WR/TE as flex alternatives to help resolve this issue.
However, a new flex position of RB/TE is needed as a roster option for commissioners to choose from, and the reason, is because there needs to be an option that has no affect on the WR spot in fantasy football. There is a dearth of reliable WRs to start each week as the season goes on, if you participate in a league that starts 3 WRs with an option for 4.
With all of that said, I am politely requesting that a RB/TE option can be created.

Create position called DSK that combines the scoring of kicker and team defense/special teams. Kicker is part of special teams and combining the value of these two will give this position true value, rather than seldom passing 10 fantasy points.

Go full football and add Offensive Lineman and Punter stats
also keep leagues open year round
John Szamosi commented
Offensive Linemen. Scale it based on sacks given up, penalties, hurries, and qb knockdowns.

We need a RB/TE Flex option added to the Roster options. We have basically every other combo available except for that one.
Somethin Bruin commented
Suggest to add a flex position with Wr/Rb/Te/K. The K makes more sense than a flex QB. In a 14 team league, a K becomes a little more valuable and makes for some interesting starts over WR3/RB3/TE2. Please make this happen… thank you!

I would love to see yahoo get two new draft spots - head coach and punter.
I would also really like to see a max put on the number of players you can have on your team. One of the things I really like about ESPN fantasy is that if I have two spots open for a running back you are only allowed 3 on your team. This keeps those that like to hoard positions from doing that and keeps all teams in it if players get hurt.
I would love to stay with yahoo if these things could be made available.

super flex positions which add an optional QB dramatically changes strategy of league, where as a super flex position which allows for option between WR/RB/TE and K (perhaps D too) allow managers to chose from players in the same value range. Superflex which include a QB might as well just be called a 2 QB league rarely does a team have enough talent at RB/WR/TE to chose one of those to start at this flex spot. However, a super flex that allows use of a K actually allows selection of a starting player from a group of players of relative value and scoring parity and provides greater roster flexibility across the league.
Anon Anonson commented
Would definitely like the option for a te/rb flex position as true rb 1s are rare and in deep leagues viable TEs are limited

If you can please quickly have this resolved soon would be great as leagues will be drafting soon.
I am looking for a flex position with RB/WR/TE/K/Def/IDP. It would allow for more options to be added.
Tom Evans commented
Allow kickers in the flex.
