  1. Increase the cap on running backs drafted

    Since you added a flex spot it doesn't make sense that you can draft 8 WRs and only 6RBs. You can start the same number of each so why can't you draft to the same limit?

  2. You NEED to have better PAUSE controls during live draft

    What a disaster switching over to Yahoo league. What is the reason for only allowing 5 pauses for a total of 15 minutes? And why can't I start the draft back up again by clicking START. Why do I have to wait the full 5 minutes? Look, there are all kinds of reasons a live draft party needs to pause/start their draft - especially when using your system for the first time. GIVE BETTER PAUSE CONTROLS!

  3. fantasy auto drafts need a MAJOR change in settings

    I had Amari Cooper well above Carson Wentz in my pre-draft rankings, yet, my team auto drafted Wentz above Cooper. This must be for positional reasons, but this is idiotic.

    There needs to be SOMETHING where you can just say "My Pre-Ranks Only" instead of the computer choosing when and where you need a position...This has happened in EVERY auto draft i've ever done...

    I want the guys i had ranked - not position players to fill out my roster...Why can't this be changed?

    I don't even want to get into the computer drafting a Kicker when i've got guys…

  4. Yahoo should create customized Slow Draft option...

    Create live drafts that have a customized timer and notifications. Simple right! Yahoo! already does both, why not combine the two. This would allow leagues such as mine to do a slow draft which a manager has hours or days to select a player then when they do the next manager would receive a notification that they are on the clock. Currently my league does this through GoogleDocs and texts. Yahoo! would be able to charge for this ability I'm sure. The other platforms allow you to do this but it costs a lot and I really like to use…

  5. Pre-Draft Rankings

    I have been playing Yahoo Fantasy football for 15 years and I have never had this issue. For some reason our pre-rankings are quarterback heavy with the top 20 pics as QB's. Our point distribution has been the same every year, and this is the first time we have experienced this. Is there a way to have the defualt pre-ranking the same as the AVG draft pick. Has anybody else had this issue? If this is a league issue I think it should be corrected. I would just like to know why this has changed and what I can do…

  6. Please give the commissioner unlimited pauses for online drafts.

    Please allow the commissioner to pause the draft an unlimited amount of times for the online draft. In a league where we can trade draft picks - it's annoying when the commissioner is unable to pause the draft to work out the players being picked up.

  7. Pre Draft rankings

    Why are the pre-draft rankings to top heavy with QB's? That will make it very difficult with the leagues having auto pick players.

    Thank you all for your feedback! The pre-draft rankings are based on total points projected, hence why QBs are stacked at the top.

    Engineering is working to switch the current pre-draft rankings to match our X-ranks. Will update here once resolved. Thanks again!

  8. Fix draft appearance in dynasty/keeper leagues

    As it currently stands, viewing the draft results from a dynasty/keeper league is repulsive. Why can't it just be the number of rounds from the draft and not include all keepers in random positions?

  10. Give commissioners ability to limit # of players of single position(Ex: 5QBs, 1 team)

    I suggest Yahoo give commissioners the ability to limit the number of players a team can draft for a single position. I have several 16 team leagues and without fail there is that one player who drafts QB after QB. One team with 5QBs in a 16 team league means several teams will be forced to trade with him just to get a starting QB, let alone get a second QB for depth and bye week. That would go a long way to a great 2018 season.

  11. Live Draft Party

    Yahoo does not have enough options to accommodate live drafts. Did a live draft this year and it worked out great but I had to use Clickydraft instead of yahoo. The options that made us choose Clickydraft are:

    1. Read only URL of live draftboard. This allows anybody to stream the draftboard where they have a web browser. We were able to put the draftboard up on a 70in tv for everyone to see at draft party.

    2. Extend draft pick timer and pause timer. While hosting a live draft party with 10 close friends and a lot of drinking,…

  12. Allow uploading of draft rankings via CSV

    I would prefer to rank my players in Excel and then upload my rankings instead of manually having to look at my rankings and update them in the yahoo tool. This would be a great addition.

  13. Editing pre-draft rankings is very cumbersome.

    #1 Please add a search function for player names.
    #2 Please exclude players already on rosters - for keeper leagues

  14. Make time zones clear.

    Auction is set for 7 pm MST and countdown is 7pm PDT which is 8 MST. It is very hard to get 10 people to all reschedule last minute. You need to have someone select the time zone themselves or get your setting right (make MST = MST)!!

  15. Printable rankings!

    A link to printable up to date draft rankings to use in live Yahoo drafts would be great. Using ESPN rankings sucks.

  16. More in-draft control

    Commissioner should be able to pause the draft, make picks for someone, even be able to go back and change a pick if need be. Not everyone can be at the draft. And sometimes the circumstances are less than ideal. Wifi cuts out all the time. People have technical issues. We had to switch to ****** espn this year because of their in draft controls.

  17. Our league loves the auction style draft. Is it possible next year to make it a blind auction?

    Our league loves the auction style draft. Is it possible next year to make it a blind auction? It helps keep the less knowledgable people from watching who the top people bid on and try to outbid them. I would keep the running tally of team's budget and who they drafted.

  18. Seperate the chat section from the players drafted....too much going on in that box.

    Separate the chat section from the players drafted ....there is way too much chatting going on in order to concentrate on the players that have been drafted. Why can't they be separate boxes? I don't like to see all the **** that people want to say about players when they're drafted.....if people like that then let them view it in another box so the serious people can concentrate on just the players that get drafted. Look at the ESPN site and see what I'm talking about....the most user friendly site I have ever seen.

  19. Need to be able to Pause Auction more than 5 tiles

    Technical issues come up and league managers need to be able to reverse picks, change picks, and most importantly, be able to PAUSE an auction more than 5 times (that’s your max allowed right now). My League is gonna have to go with a different site unless you can change this. It’s too bad, because your auction room has fantastic functionality. Best in class.

  20. We get a draft grade after the draft, why don't we get one at the end of year on how are draft choices turned out?

    I don't believe in the grade of my draft at the start of the season. In the pros they also grade team's draft choices at the end of the season. Why not give a grade for a team's draft at the end of the season as well?
