  1. Best ball option

    I would like there to be a commissioner tool to edit benched and started players in a given week when the match up is over. That way I can offer each owner in my league one chance a season to use a best ball lineup during the season.

  3. QB position Points

    Like ESPN, when you have your QB in the game and he gets taken out of the game (injury or just replaced) that you still get points for who ever is QBing for that team....Team QB

  4. Victory Points option

    I think yahoo should add a victory points option. The way it works in H2H leagues, you play your H2H matchup and that's a win or a loss. (1-0) then your score is compared to the rest of the league, if you are in the top half of scoring you get another "win" if its the bottom half you get a loss. So every week there is 2 games. So you can be 2-0, 1-1, 0-2, on any given week. This helps reduce the luck of H2H schedules. It's funny to read how I am 6-4 but if I have…

  5. Allow head-to-head leagues the option to designate some weeks as "non head-to-head," decided league-wide by total points.

    I have been in a 12-team league for over a decade. We want to abolish divisions, but keep the 13-week regular season schedule balanced. So instead of each team playing two opponents twice, which is ideal for four divisions, we want to designate two weeks of the regular season that are decided by total points rules, with the top half of the league getting a win and the bottom half of the league getting a loss. That way there are 11 weeks where you play each team once, and two weeks where no one can risk an "unlucky" match-up. Is…

  6. Alternative Scoring Format Excluding Arbitrary Schedule (NOT ROTO!!!)

    I would like to see a format of scoring that eliminates the arbitrary schedule. In a 12-team league with playoffs, our league essentially has 13 weeks of head-to-head matchups. The last two weeks are played against previous opponents for the second time. If the arbitrary schedule has selected your team to go against the 'best' teams in the league, you are at a major disadvantage.

    Further, if you put up the second most points in a week, but are pitted against the top overall scorer, your record would be equivalent to the worst-performing team. I don't mind this in sports…

  7. Matchup Change - All Play

    We moved to an All Play format years ago but this is something that has to be tracked manually. We have found this to be the most competitive way to run a league and truly end up with the best teams going to the playoffs. Can we please make this a league option for next season?

  8. Allow Best Ball Scoring

    Give leagues the ability to use Best Ball Scoring. (Start your optimal lineup) This way you are allowed to set up Draft Only Best Ball leagues. There are other websites that offer them but would enjoy being able to use the Yahoo Fantasy App for that type of league.

  9. PPR based on catch:target ratio

    Receivers that are more reliable targets should be rewarded over those who are getting constant looks with less receptions.

    How it looks in practice:

    if a receiver goes 3/3 receptions over targets, they should get an additional 3pts (3/3 * 3)

    if the receiver goes 3/6 receptions over targets, they would get an additional 1.5 pts (3/6 * 3)

    Without such scoring, the targets stat doesn't mean much other than opportunities. Reliable receivers should be rewarded as such

  10. Custom scoring option for Fake FG and Fake Punt TD on Def/Special Teams

    My league believes a Def should get the option to get 6 pts for a fake FG or Punt that goes for a TD. The option should be given as it makes those plays much more meaningful and it happens when. SPECIAL TEAMS units are on the field.

  11. Positional Specific Scoring Options

    As several other posts here have stated, Yahoo does have some great custom scoring options.

    However, In the interest of creating better Equivalent Positional Value, I'd like to see the ability to add position specific scoring options. For instance: the ability to score QB/RB/WR/TE rushing, receiving, and passing yards separately or, more importantly, independent of each other. With such scoring a QB's rushing yards (or any other relevant stat) could be adjusted to be more/less than say the points earned by a RB.

    The thought with having these options would be to create a more balanced scoring system, which would…

  13. DST and/or Kicker designation changes...

    I have long hoped for ways to further customize fantasy leagues to add more interest, intrigue and strategy to the way owners can approach their matchups week to week.

    One idea that I would love to see implemented some day would be for there to be a DSTK position or a DST position with a check box saying "track kicker stats" next to it.

    This simple change could bring about many variables to how commissioners can lock in mandatory Roster positions that will impact how owners approach the draft, trades, waiver moves and setting their starting lineup week to week.

    Hey Rob, thanks very much for your feedback, certainly an interesting idea. I’ll pass it along to our product managers to investigate feasibility. Good luck this season!

  14. For next years football game for a scoring stat can receivers/quarterbacks get points for drawing/throwing a

    A WR should get at least a point for drawing a Pass Interference. A QB can get some fraction of a point. When a PI occurs those positions get robbed of potential points. The league commish should be able to assign a point value based on the yardage length of the PI.

  15. Add 60+ yard field goals as a separate scoring catagory

    Add 60+ yard field goals as a separate scoring category. 60+ is certainly deserving of more points than a 50 yard field goal. why does field goal points stop at 50+ when 60+ yard field goals are possible and quite an elite achievement by a kicker

  17. New D/ST scoring opportunity. Punts inside the 5.

    We should have the option to award points to D/ST for pinning the offence inside the 5 yard line on a punt.

    The ST stands for special teams, right? Punt returns can count for points, why not punts?

  18. Points bonus for cumulative receiving/ rushing yards

    Our league has bonus qualifiers for receiving yards (at 100/150/200 yards) & rushing yards (at 100/150/200). Would it be possible to create a bonus qualifier for cumulative receiving/rushing yards? i.e. a running back has 50 receiving yards and 50 rushing yards for a total of 100 total yards, therefore receiving the bonus points.

  19. A better Points League format for Fantasy Football

    The Points scoring format could so much better than it is. I have an idea for a truly great alternative to H2H formats.

    It's very similar to the Roto format from fantasy basketball. Instead of H2H matchups, everyone is fighting to be the top scorer every week against everyone else, but you get points based on where you ranked that week. For example, in a 10 team league the highest scorer gets 10 points, 2nd highest gets 9, 3rd highest gets 8, etc. Lowest scorer in a given week gets 1 point. These points determine league standings.

    Overall fantasy totals…

  20. Best Ball Flex

    After talking to several people in different leagues on ways to make fantasy football better, one of the things mentioned was having a Flex spot that would be fillet with the highest scoring player not started. So say your league start the 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 K, 1 DST (as an example) you would asign players you want to start every week in those spots, and then there would be the best ball flex that would take the highest non starter on your bench. We felt that it would have more involvement then…
