  1. Head to head vs. each team in league

    Provide an additional head-to-head option where you play against each time in the league, if you have lowest score you would be 0-9 that week, best score 9-0, etc.

  2. 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…

  3. Reduced Waiver Period for TNF players

    The rigid two-day waiver period for dropped players is annoying on the best days and a HUGE leak when it comes to TNF players.

    Players dropped on Waiver Wire Wednesday should be addable if they are playing Thursday Night Football. Instead they are stuck on the waiver wire until Saturday which really means they can't be added until the following week.

    Not sure if the best solution is reducing the Waiver window across the board or segregating TNF players, but this is a pretty silly restriction.

  4. All play record as a wild card and playoff spot tiebreaker criteria

    Enable "All Play Record" as a wild card determiner. You already track a teams 'all play record' and report it, at least on a single week basis. My league has voted that this is our preferred metric for establishing wild card births into the playoffs. At the moment, as commissioner, I track that independently and will use the alter playoff seeding manually if needed this year, but it would be terrific to have this automated and reported as part of the league standings.

  6. Being able to adjust waiver processing times.

    Being able to set a customized time for when waivers process in a league would be ideal for FAAB (Continuous).

    Example: Being able to set the waivers process time to 9am PST Instead of the set unchangeable standard of midnight PST.

  7. Bring back the consolation bracket please!

    We've had the same league for 3 years - 14 teams, with 8 teams making a 3-week playoff and the next 4 making a consolation bracket. Our settings haven't changed, and the bracket is gone now. Why? It's very important for our year-to-year management, and honestly, keeps it fun for everyone. Let's get that back.

  8. Conditional Waivers

    When prioritizing waivers, there should be an option to make certain waivers conditional based on higher priority waivers being successfully claimed. This would help when you don't want to lose your league waiver position for the lower priority claims, but would like to process multiple waiver claims if you already used your position on the #1 priority waiver claim.

  9. Please allow for fractional kicker points

    Allow for Commissioner tools to enable function for fractional kicker points. A 31 yard field goal worth 3.1, a 46 yard field goal worth 4.6.

    All other positions are allowed fractional points. Would be beneficial to allow fair scoring across the board.

    Thanks.

  10. Allow locking bench players after their game begins until waivers begin on Tuesday.

    Bench players whose teams have played may still be dropped, allowing the team to sign player on teams whose games have not begun. At a minimum, there should be an option to disallow dropping such players, and require them to remain on the roster until waivers begin. While my league likes the Yahoo platform, other platforms allow this option, and we hope that Yahoo could allow such a restriction rather than needing to switch platforms.

  11. Please add option to Lock all players (for that week) once their game has started! Common sense option on other platforms

    I like having the Waivers run once a day (almost everyday) so there's never a time a team can simply Add a player based off of breaking news... they have to put a Waiver claim in. However, with this "Continuous" Waiver option in Yahoo, it doesn't Lock the Thursday night guys once they've played. When our Waivers process on Saturday, the Thursday night guys are available to put a bid in! That makes no sense!

    So PLEASE Yahoo, simply add an option to Lock Players at Gametime (regardless of the Waivers setting). It's a simple option that other main platforms…

  13. New playoff option

    My buddy played in an ESPN league with this playoff setup and Id like yahoo to allow for this option as well.

    How I want to do it is week 15 the semi finals, week 16/17 part 1 and part 2 of the finals. What do you think about that?? Even if you don't like it shouldn't we at least have the option so people who do like it can choose it?

  14. Kicker's Lives Matter - fractional points and 60+ yard fgs

    It is silly that every other player in fantasy score points using the decimal system. A 49 yard field goal should net a kicker 4.9 points. And it's blasphemous that the kicker cloud nine that is a 60 yard field goal does not net 6 points. When will this nation realize that Kickers too are real people and their lives/points matter. Let's work together to make these necessary changes to give Kickers the rights they have always deserved.

    Problem: Kickers are unfairly discriminated against via yards/points.

    Solution: All field goals are a minimum of 3 points, and all subsequent yards…

  15. Dropping bench players after game time and 3 way trades

    Two suggestions for next year

    Two issues I would like to see implemented to improve yahoo fantasy football.

    1. This is a major issue... a player being dropped during or after a game is played should not be allowed until the week is over and everyone has played their game. ESPN fantasy is the only site I've seen implement this and this is how all sites should be IMO. example: Team X picks up JD Mckissik before tonight's game in hopes that he can break out or overtake Rawls on the depth chart. But Team X is wrong and mckissik…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. Poll

    Please add back the option to post polls on the website. It makes it very hard when trying to incorporate changes moving forward. I want to convert my league to a keeper league... but may have to switch to ESPN or another format if polls aren't enabled. This makes it extremely difficult for people with busy lives to coordinate.

  20. Ty Montgomery should have WR eligibility

    Ty Montgomery should have WR eligibility for 2017. Against the Seahawks, he wore jersey number 88, a number reserved for WRs or TEs and ineligible for RBs. Though he may be taking snaps out of the backfield, Yahoo cannot deny that he is a WR as indicated by his jersey eligibility.
