  1. Live Draft Party

    Yahoo does not have enough options to accommodate live drafts. Did a live draft this year and it worked out great but I had to use Clickydraft instead of yahoo. The options that made us choose Clickydraft are:

    1. Read only URL of live draftboard. This allows anybody to stream the draftboard where they have a web browser. We were able to put the draftboard up on a 70in tv for everyone to see at draft party.

    2. Extend draft pick timer and pause timer. While hosting a live draft party with 10 close friends and a lot of drinking,…

  2. Large Format - Multi-division Leagues

    Allow for large format leagues. Have multiple divisions of 8-15 teams each that play within their division during season then the top 'x' team advance to a grand playoff which remaining teams compete in their division tourney. No player overlap within your division but there can be during grand championship tournament. This allows for greater engagement within larger groups and offices similar to March Madness. Many offices I've worked in have had 3-4 separate leagues though they'd prefer the larger option. I have used myfantasyleague.com for a church fundraiser including 50-70 people but prefer your U/I and functionality. All this…

  3. Prize for bottom bracket

    I love that Yahoo has now implemented money collection into the league, but I would really like an option to give money to the winner of the bottom bracket (teams that didn't make playoffs). One of the problems that happens in fantasy is that the bottom teams no longer stay engaged (picking up free agents or setting their lineup), which effects how the better teams are doing as well. In the past I've offered the teams a chance to win their contribution back, so they still have something to play for even if they didn't make the top bracket playoffs.

  4. Edit team order (not sport order, but individual teams)

  5. Additional Win/Loss Based On Weekly Points

    In addition to one's head to head matchup, there should be a win or loss based on your points for the week. If a team scores in the top half of the league, they should get a win (bottom half- loss). Therefore every week a team would have two results (2-0, 1-1, or 0-2). It seems like every week I hear someone complain that he or she had the 2nd highest score in a league but lost because they played against the highest scorer. This system would take the luck out of the regular season, and more accurately determine the…

  6. Trade Deadline Dates

    Fantasy football has just opened... and I noticed the trade deadline is only customize-able for 5 specific dates (all which are Saturdays). What gives?! Why does Yahoo continue to limit commissioner customize-able settings? Commissioners should have as many customize-able settings as possible.

  7. 10 Team Playoffs for 16 team leagues

    I run a 14 team league and we are adding 2 more teams. With 16 teams we want to have a 10 team playoffs. Teams 1-6 are automatically in the 2nd round while teams 7-10 play in a "wild card" round. We think it is the perfect option as 8 teams doesn't seem like enough. I have looked and ESPN offers this option, we have always been Yahoo and we prefer the Yahoo user interface but will make the switch if this option isn't created

  8. Two team defenses are missing from Draft Analysis page

    Our league uses Average Draft Position to calculate where our keepers are allowed to be picked. Unfortunately, I cannot begin to calculate the Los Angeles Chargers defense because it is nowhere to be found on the ADP page (https://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/draftanalysis?tab=SD&pos=DEF&sort=DA_AP). It looks like there are currently only 30 teams listed. There are 32 teams in the NFL. So by my calculation, there are a total of two teams missing. I'm not sure which other team is missing, however

  9. Dropped Passes

    Most leagues take points away for fumbles. It would be interesting and fun to have a stat category that allows for points to be taken away if a player drops a pass.

  10. Please enter a weekly high score option for cash leagues

    Doesn't have to be paid out weekly but would be nice to have more options to win other than season overall points.

  11. Option to commission/manage leagues you don't play in

    Background - I have been managing my league using Yahoo for the past 6 years. In that time, the demand to be in my league became so popular amongst friends & coworkers (mainly because there's a trophy) that I eventually expanded into 2 12-man leagues (A & B). Unique Rules: You can only win the trophy in League A. The teams to make the playoffs (top 6 teams) in League B move into League A next season. The teams that don't make the playoffs (bottom 6) in League A drop down into League B next season.
    Main Point - Since…

  12. Draft Team RBs like Team Defenses

    Draft Team RBs like Team Defenses. RBBC is so common now it makes sense to draft them that way. Can this option be added for this season?

  13. Lock bench players who have already played

    Block any team owner from dropping a player that has played, regardless of whether they are in their active line up or on their bench. The owner in my match up did not set his lineup before the games started. After the Sunday night game when he saw that he had a chance to win if he had set his lineup correctly, he dropped two players from his bench that had already played on Sunday to add two players in the Monday night game. Now he stands a very good chance to get the win. Whereas, before he was going…

  14. Franchise tag

    We have a Keeper league, but this year have added a 2 year max Franchise Tag designation.

    Is there anyway to add an 'F' along with the 'K' designation to distinguish these two?

    Also, since most use pads or phones, and there's no way to hover over the 'K', is there an easy way to determine Keeper value?

    Thanks and you guys CONTINUE to do a GREAT job?

  15. A more exciting type of Points League

    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…

  16. extend season through the Superbowl in non-head to head leagues

    In non-head to head football leagues, allow the season to run through the superbowl, this would add the challenge of choosing players with playoff potential and create a playoff season waiver rush.

  17. Prioritize FAAB Transactions (not completed!)

    This issue was already reported and marked as COMPLETED but is still a problem. Thank you user Mike (https://yahoo.uservoice.com/users/38597922-mike) for the excellent description of the issue.

    https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/206158-fantasy-football/suggestions/9002020-prioritize-faab-transactions

    "Yahoo, you need to enable owners to prioritize their FAAB transactions. Your current setup of processing an owner's highest bid over their lowest bid is an egregious mistake.

    Take the following example:
    Owner A wants to drop Adrian Peterson for Matt Asiata with a bid of $8.
    Owner A also wants to drop Adrian Peterson for Jerick McKinnon with a bid of $2.

    Let's say Owner A would actually prefer the…

  19. I do what's called Manager Efficiency Rating -- a percentage of points scored versus the points you could have scored with the right players

    I do what's called Manager Efficiency Rating -- a percentage of points scored versus the points you could have scored if you had the "right" players in your lineup (the optimal). I also do what's called Strength of Team, which is simply a sum of a team's optimal points. With these two measures, you can analyze who has been good at inserting the right players into their lineups and whose team has had potential, but the manager can't get it right in terms of their lineup. It can identify who has been doing well despite not having the pieces on…

  20. Additional Roster Positions

    In order to keep Special Teams relevant, I propose adding two positions:

    KR = Kick Returner
    PR = Punt Returner

    Each NFL team designate a player, usually a wide receiver, slotted on its special team roster. Adding the above two roster positions will allow leagues to utilize the return yards and the return touchdowns into their grand scheme of their football strategy.

    The above will provide a valuable option for league owners, whereas, some wide receivers and runnings backs may be on the low end of their respective depth chart, but may be on the top end of the special…
