  1. 1 point for pushes

    Whenever there is a push for a game, everyone who makes a pick should get 1 point. Giving no points benefits those who forget their pick for that game and they SHOULD be penalized for forgetting. Please, please make this change. It doesn't hurt anyone to make this change.

  2. If a person does not make a pick (say on a Thurs. night game) they should lose their highest points.

    So if someone fails to get a pick in on time, they should lose their highest remaining point total. Say there is an upset and everyone else had the upset team picked high, you are rewarding the person who did not get there pick in. That will obviously make the missed game their 1 point game. It should not be that way.

  3. Enable history like already exists for Yahoo Fantasy Football.

    With Fantasy Football, a history was enabled a few years ago- it included a retro-active history of all leagues related to the commissioner (me). This was and is enjoyable for all involved. I've also been commissioner of our Pick'em league for close to a decade now and would love to have the history visible in a similar way.

  4. Take away top points for forgetting!!!

    There should be an option to take away the top points available instead of just the 1pt game when someone forgets to make picks. That way the team that forgets isn't rewarded if there is a huge upset on Thursday and everyone else gets it wrong. You should never be rewarded for forgetting or simply not bothering to pick!!!

  5. During bye-weeks, keep the top ranking/value at 16

    During a week with a full slate of 16 games, the total amount of points you could earn is 136. During a week with 13 games, the best you can do is 91 points. This throws the whole season out of whack because you inevitably used your dropped points in those mid-season weeks, often despite picking fairly well. You often feel like, "What's the point?" when picking for a 13-game week.
    But if you kept the max ranking at 16 every single week, things would be more fair. For instance, in a 13-game week, start with 16, step down accordingly,…

  6. Set the "Final" Line on Wednesday.

    As the NFL has adjusted their schedule to always have Thursday games, the point spread will be a topic of discussion in situations as we saw on Thanksgiving. Some leagues allow players to choose up to 5 mins before each game, and other leagues dictate all picks must be done by the start of the first game of the week. If Yahoo "draws a line in the sand" for the point spread on Wednesday, they build in a 24hour leadup to the first game to fix any server issues that are currently seeing.

    Alternatively, you could create a tool in…

  7. Pro Football pickem missed picks

    When a player misses the Thursday game in pro football pickem they only lose 1 point rather that the highest total for that week. THey should lose 16 points (or whatever the highest total is).

  8. Add a "points lost" column

    I'd like to see a "points lost" column when viewing scores under "group picks", and have the option to sort the participants that way.

    This is how I determine who is really leading every week while the week is still underway. Because some participants can have front-heavy high confidence points, and others later in the day, this is a much more accurate way to determine where participants stand for the week...... and then i don't have to do all the math.

  9. You need a new tiebreaker.

    Tiebreaker should be total number of games correct. If it is still a tie, person who lost the highest confidence points game loses.

  10. Missed Games = 16 Points

    When someone misses the Thursday game or forgets to put points against a game, they should miss a max penalty for that week. 16 if there are 16 games, 15 if there are 15 games.. etc..

  11. Why can't the commissioner of a private group add a member's picks after the deadline?

    One of my members attempted to enter his picks around 7:20 CST, about 20 min before the deadline. However your site did not save his picks, and he ended up sending them to me (still before the game started). Now I have no ability to add his picks, even for the rest of the weekend.

    In past seasons, the commissioner could modify the deadline. If that were still in effect, at least I could change that and add his picks so he wouldn't be locked out of the whole week. Why did that setting change?

    In general, I think the…

  13. Point System

    If someone forgets to put in for Thursday Night football they should lose the highest point total possible for that week. I had a lot of members complain about this last year. Thanks.

  14. Pick'em Confidence Factor Scoring - Keep same number of total points each week

    Under the current settings, a pick'em league with confidence factors can have total weekly points raging from 136 to 91 points depending on the number of games played. When playing the option to drop the low week, the current scoring system punishes players who perform well in those 'low total' weeks since the starting point is 45 points lower than most weeks (1/3 the total points!). This issue can be resolved 1 of 2 ways:

    1) Every week is worth the same number of total points. If there are 16 games, 1-16 factors are used for a total of 136…

  15. FIX PENALTY FOR MISSED PICKS

    This is listed on here 100 times, let's make it 101 to see if yahoo gets our point. Fix the confidence points taken away for missed picks from what is virtually a freebie, taking away the 1 point pick, to taking away the highest confidence available. If there are 16 games and you miss Thursday, you lose your ability to put 16 on a game. That simple, I have played in hundreds of these and never seen a system that doesn't make players accountable for their team. Until now, this is a competition that they signed up for, it's not…

  16. Enable Default Picks

    Can there be an option to default picks? The commissioner can set up the league to default to home team/favorite/whatever. I've ran a pick 'em league the past few years through Yahoo and this is the biggest issue that I get when I ask for feedback from the league.

  17. Missed deadline and confidence points

    Our group has the deadline set to 5 minutes before each game with confidence points. When players don't get their picks in prior to the Thursday deadline, they still have the option to assign all points for the week so obviously the 1 point pick is going to go on the game that they missed. That doesn't seem fair as the people that actually get their picks in on time usually assign more than the 1 point pick. There have been several upsets on Thursday this year already and the people that got their picks in on time were down…

  19. Add a tiebreaker for the Season, not just individual weeks

    We have a trophy for our Pick Em, but some seasons end up with ties. We don't really need the weekly tiebreakers (and turn them off), but it would be nice to have a tiebreaker for the season to have only one winner.

    What we use ourselves when there is a tie is the person that won the most individual weeks is the overall winner. If this is also the same, then we have them pick the score of the superbowl.

    Something like this should be added to your system to make it more official for the overall winner.
