  1. Award waiver claims first, then release all remaining players to free agents! Players locked with no claims..

    Players are being locked in the waiver system even when they are not claimed by anyone. At 1am, most players that are not claimed move to free agents. This morning it kept several players, including Matt Bryant and Cameron Brate locked in the waiver system, even though no one claimed them. Then, apparently after waivers were awarded at 2:21am, they became free agents. It would be beneficial for all fantasy team owners if Yahoo would lock all players until waiver claims are awarded and then release all unclaimed players to free agency at the same time. Doing it in different…

  2. 8 Team Consolation Bracket Option

    Can you please add a Consolation Bracket for the 8 team playoff option. This remarkably helps in preventing managers from giving up on their season if they have been eliminated from the playoffs. Thank you

  3. IR spot

    Why can you put anyone who is "OUT" in the IR spot??? You should have to be on the IR to be put in there. Like it used to be. Pretty simple concept. Why it changed to this is beyond me. Fix it please

  4. Add Option to Export League Data

    Add an option to export league data to Excel or CSV. This would be very helpful for dynasty leagues and for commissioners tracking league-custom records and stats.

  5. Maybe, just Mayyyybe your garbage app should notify owners of their players being TRADED!!!! You notify me 9-10 times about questionable/hea

    Maybe, just Mayyyybe your garbage app should notify owners of their players being TRADED!!!! You notify me 9-10 times about questionable/healthy status changes, yet you did NOT notify me a player had been traded.... Some one in my league within 12 minutes already took his replacement off free agency. If you had notified me when it was announced, I would have been able to scoop up the replacement from FA BEFORE random opponents took the new RB1 for the browns.

    Its un-be-frickin-leavable that you don't notify on TRADES

  7. Le'von Bell is not on a NFL Roster he should be Listed as NA not Out

    Bell is not on a Roster thus should be made NA not out like other players through out the season such as Dez or Marshall who were NA not Out when the were unsigned. Bell is unsigned. For short Bench Keeper Leagues this is a huge issue. Fix it.

  8. Pulling Data from Multiple Leagues

    I am working on a Fantasy Football project that looks to pull data (real-time points, teams, team rosters, etc) together from multiple leagues. I have been looking into the Yahoo Fantasy Sports API, but I am not sure if that covers all the data I am looking for. Is that something you can help with or can you point me in the proper direction?

  9. I think it would be a great idea to add the ability to run a dynasty league on yahoo.

    I think the ability to do a dynasty league on yahoo would be a great asset. Yahoo is the best interface for fantasy football, but currently doesn't support dynasty. The ability to manage a roster over the offseason, would be great for users, and could attract more.

  10. H2H Regular Season, Points playoffs

    H2H is way more fun for regular season, but I would like to make playoffs points-based. Instead of H2H matchups, the teams in the quarters and semis face everyone and the top scoring half of teams move on to the following round (4 move on from quarterfinals and 2 move on from semifinals). Simple feature to add, and it's more fair.

  11. Allow playoff matchups to be edited after the playoffs begin.

    I'd like to be able to manually change matchups during the fantasy playoffs. This would allow me to have a consolation tournament take place for the Bottom 4 teams, and would include losers from Round 1 of the playoffs.

  12. Tiebreaker is supposed to be Head to Head season record, but 4th seed went to highest scoring. Need HELP ASAP

    Our league is supposed to be head to head season record tie-breaker. 3 teams finshed 8-6. 4th seed went to highest scoring instead of the team that won their regular season matchup by 90 points. Need help changing playoff seeding in our league

  13. Next Day Waivers vs 1-day waivers

    As many are saying, waivers don't clear until like 3am EST on Wednesday, meaning that the lowest waiver period (1-day) results in the player not being available until 3am EST on Friday.

    This is not only a ridiculous wait period for the lowest setting, but it blocks anyone from picking up players who play on Thursday night. Those players will now be on waivers from the time they are dropped Tuesday PM, for a whole week due to them playing o Thursday... this has been a HUGE bugaboo for my league.

    My proposals:

    > Option 1 - Make a time…

  14. Customize waivers to run on multiple days and be "free" on gameday

    The options for waivers are very limited, either running Tuesday PM or players always stay on waivers (continuous). We'd like to run waivers on multiple days, but still enable "free for all" on game day so owners aren't stuck waiting for waivers.

    If we could get the above change, that would be awesome. Beyond that, I believe it should be built in that, on a day that a player has a game, they are removed from waivers. This allows owners to make moves on Thursday night prior to the game if needed, while the players not in the game are…

  15. Don't make stat changes Thursday morning!

    Really dumb to make stat corrections Thursday morning. I went from a having a first round bye to playing, dropping from 2nd to 3rd in my league. I missed out on waivers and 3 days ti prepare. Anyone who actually plays fantasy would never do that

  16. 8 Team Consolation

    I run a 14 team league, and I would love to have the option for a 6 team Playoff Bracket and an EIGHT team Consolation Bracket. Yahoo! currently only offers a 6 team Playoff Bracket and a 6 team Consolation Bracket.

  17. 8 team Playoff with Consolation Bracket

    I run a 12 team league with an 8 team playoff however for the 4 unlucky members there season ends after week 12. I think it would be a good idea to have the option for a 4 team consolation bracket extending their seasons two more weeks so they are still engaged for the rest of the season.

  18. Pass Interference Points

    Defensive pass interference should award the WR/TE/RB/QB with half the regular amount of yardage points; or at least provide the option and let the commish choose the % allocation. Seems unfair that the offensive players gets nothing in this situation.

  19. Playoff time!

    When it comes time for playoffs, you should dress the site a lot more for the contenders. Give it an intense, more exicting look. Add some art, regular season h2h match up summaries, etc. to the Match Up page. More graphics or something on the League page as well.

    IT'S THE F'N PLAYOFFS!!

    I'd love to work for yahoo fantasy if you take this idea.

    Thanks.
