  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. allow for extended draft

    Having the option for an extended draft, allows teams to draft over a period of time. For example, a league could start drafting three weeks before the season starts. Each team would have, 12 hours to make a pick. It is getting tougher and tougher to find a time to draft, so this would allow more freedom for everyone's schedule.

  4. Two-week Championship

    Was looking for fantasy hockey engineering forum but alas.
    Can we please adjust our playoff settings to create a two-week championship round (combining weeks 23 and 24)?
    There is no option to do this despite popular support. Why?

  5. Delete Smack Talk from Old Leagues

    I have multiple smack talk leagues that I don't use. Can you guys make a way to delete them? Every year someone strarts posting in the wrong chat and if we could delete older league chats it wouldn't happen. Not the biggest deal but it'd be nice to have that option.

  6. tiebreaker

    Could we have an option where the commissioner can set tiebreaker similar to what the NFL uses? First tiebreaker would be head to head result, second would be division record, third would be record vs common opponents, fourth would be strength of victory, and then finally points scored.

  7. Please allow waivers by lottery

    I think it would be great if you waiver claims could be resolved by lottery instead of position/ranking.

    This would allow everyone to place waiver claims with no cost.

    This would eliminate any need for people to wake up early the next morning to grab free agents who weren't important enough to waste waiver position, since there was no cost to begin with.

  9. Season Story Calculation is Flawed

    Your Season Story grade is fundamentally flawed. I agree with including the in-season management and final results but by incorporating our draft score you're incorporating YOUR projection of our draft score. In one of my drafts, I drafted Kareem Hunt in the 4th round. Your draft analysis ridiculed me for this pick.
    After Hunt finishing 3rd in overall running backs, I'd say I had the better draft strategy. I'd suggest if you do this again next year, you re-score the draft based on the final results and not on your questionable pre-draft rankings or even ADP.

  10. "One Button" Optimal Starting Lineup Option

    Add a button for setting your lineup each week to optimize your starting lineup in one press of a button (based on the current projections at that time). When pressing the button, your starting lineup will update based on the highest projections and starting position availability.

  11. Please Blocked Eliminated Players From Waiver Claims in the Playoffs

    Please Blocked Eliminated Players From Waiver Claims During Playoff

    Eliminated players participating in the consolation bracket should not be able to make waiver claims. The ONLY players who should be allowed to make waiver claims are the players who are still in contention to win the championship. That is, after all, WHY WE PLAY THE GAME! When a player is eliminated, then makes waiver claims...its at best, bad form and poor sportsmanship and at worst it's cheating and possible collusion.

    This should apply to all redraft leagues.

    I guess Keeper Leagues Should have an option for eliminated players participating in…

  12. New Skill Level section shows inaccurate info

    Today I noticed the new Skill Level that replaced the Smack Talk section on the My Team page. I'm not sure where it is pulling the information from but it is 100% false, not even close to being accurate. I have played in the same league that I created in 2003 which makes its inaccuracy even more surprising and confusing. It says I have managed 15 teams, which is true including this season, with a lifetime record of 68-54-0 with 4 trophies won (I assume that means all trophies not just Gold?). I just went through and checked and my…

  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. 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!

  15. 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.

  17. Teddy Bridgewater was just switched from "Out" to "Inactive" despite being placed on PUP.

    There is evidently an error in the way you update your injury status. Teddy Bridgewater had been listed as "Out" through the entire off-season until he was put on PUP, and then his status changed to "Inactive" which is normally saved for players not on an active roster.

  18. 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.

  20. Let us disable the consolation bracket in fantasy playoffs

    I know many people enjoy the consolation bracket in the playoffs, but no one in my league pays attention to these games or cares about them. All they do is mess things up. Please give us the option to turn the consolation bracket off!

    There are two main benefits:

    1. This will make the "lock eliminated teams" feature more effective (right now it's basically useless because it lets managers in the consolation playoffs continue to make waiver moves, which is not what most commissioners intend when they use this feature)

    2. It will prevent meaningless consolation games from determining the…
