  1. Make Kickers more exciting by adding scoring elements


    1. Each Touchback. Give them a point. Not a huge play, but it's nice not to worry about the return, as always for any team.


    2. Game-Winning field goal (doubler?) (if is last score resulting in win).


    3. Kicker makes tackle. That could be tough on Yahoo's data collection system, but boy is that a critical play. Kicker probably just saved the team the TD. Worth at least 3-4 points.


    4. Onside Kick Successful. Worth at least as much as a fumble recovery, 3-4 points.

  2. Full Season (Including Playoffs) Total Point Scoring

    When using the head-to-head matchups format, Yahoo stops calculating total points for each team after the the final week of play, before playoffs begin. Since you continue to calculate points for each team when determining who advances in the playoffs, it would be ideal to add those points in the standings, even if it's a different standings screen, so each league can show the total points scored for a full season of games (inclusive of playoffs).

  3. Strength of Schedule (SOS)

    For Head-to-Head leagues, under the "Standings", add the Strength of Schedule (SOS) column to show the difficulty or ease of a team's/person's opponent as compared to other teams/persons. This is especially important if teams in a league do not play each other the same number of times.

    This column may also be used in the future as an alternative for determining which teams would be eligible for playoffs and tiebreakers.

    The calculation would be SOS = 2(OR)+(OOR) / 3, where OR is the opponents' record, while OOR is the opponents' opponents record.

  4. Positional Rankings

    Not having positional rankings dilutes the entire ranking experience. I have never found a time where total rankings are helpful in running my team or managing the waiver wire. As FFL owners, we don't make comparisons between positions, only between players of a particular position. At least consider using both total rankings and positional rankings.

  5. Update Stat corrections in scores the next day....

    I received an email yesterday (Wednesday) that I won week 1 with a recap email and this morning (Thursday) I show that I actually lost. The scoring corrections are fine but don't wait until the the next football week to update the scores and not notify the the two teams involved.

    C'mon man....

  6. More options with Type of Scoring

    You need to add an option where the top 5 teams as far as points scored in a give week receive a Win and the bottom 5 teams receive a Loss. You could also add an element where you still go head to head for 1 W/L and then receive another 1 W/L with the top 5 scoring. So if there is a matchup with the 2 lowest scores the teams will end up being 1-1 and 0-2 for the week. Every other site has this I am surprised Yahoo doesn't - please implement!!!!

  7. Fumble 6

    I think there should be a "Fumble 6" option, similar to a "Pick 6". So, if your player fumbles, and that fumble is returned for a touchdown, he gets more negative points.

    Thank you and have a wonderful day.

  8. Best Ball Format

    Allow best ball format leagues which automatically start the highest point players into the starting positions each week.

  9. Defensive scoring

    In our league (Buffalo Bills Backers) we have a system that rewards the defensive team as the following: 200-299 yards allowed gets you 6 pts.; 300-399 gets you 3 pts.; 400-499 gets you 0 pts.; and 500 or more gets you -5 pts. That's fair but it doesn't account for a defensive team which holds an opponent from 0-99 yds., nor 100-199 yds. That's totally unfair. In fact 3 teams in our league last week did just that and weren't rewarded at all!!!!!!! With the above examples of multiples of 3 they should have gotten 9 pts. for 100-199 and…

  10. DST consistant scoring

    A few years ago I lost on a scoring correction. What happened was I owned the Saints Def. Drew Brees threw an interception, on the INT return there was a fumble and the Saints recovered it. At first my def got the points for the turnover recovery, but it was later corrected. The reason I didn't get the points, per Yahoo, was because my defense was not on the field at the time. I disagreed with the logic, as I felt once the int was thrown the saints become defense-tackle points would go to offensive players back in the day…

  12. Individual position scoring

    We do 1.5 PPR for TE specifically with other positions being 1 PPR but this had to be done manually. Can we add a feature to change scoring per position?

  13. Change special teams scoring

    Make fumble recoveries and touchdowns an option for special teams. We feel fake punt or fake field goal touchdowns should be special teams. Also a fumbled punt return. Yahoo says that is offense.

  14. If the settings do not award points to individual players for Special Teams, they should not be penalized for fumbles.

    Our league does not award points to individual players for special teams, but Yahoo does not differentiate between special teams fumbles and any other fumble. For example, in week of 2017, Jamison Crowder fumbled a punt and was assessed -2.

  15. Add QB hurries to IDP stat categories

    It is difficult to increase DL scoring without increasing scoring for LBs at the same time. QB hurries is a stat usually led by the DL position. By adding this stat category the DL position would be more valuable and desirable. Thanks.

  16. Team D/ST Point category for WIN

    Bonus points for a team D/ST who won. 1% or something, or variable. This ensures that the winning team is more likely to outscore the losing team.

  17. droppped balls

    My suggestion is to add a stat category for pass catchers who drop the ball when thrown to them. This "dropped ball" should not count against the QB, as an incomplete pass. If there is no way to separate the two then add it and they both will lose points.

  18. Offer another scoring format

    I was wondering why ESPN doesn't provide the choice to use VP (Virtual Points) scoring. The H2H format is great for competing against someone, but you get no credit for scoring the 2nd most points, as you take the loss on your record. Points is where it's at, but points eliminates the competitive aspect of defeating someone weekly. VP scoring combines the best of both worlds, as you get a chance to defeat your opponent, AND you get credit for scoring within the top 4 of the league. Even if you lose, but have a very high score, you can…

  20. Give the Team Defense points for causing the opposing team to punt.

    Give the team defense 1 point for causing the opposing team to punt since it's their job to get the ball back for their own offense.
