Allow users to sort and filter lineups in Upcoming and Live views
Sorting and filtering lineups is a useful feature that is offered by other DFS platforms and should be added to Yahoo as well. The current process of finding a specific lineup in a specific contest involves wading through multiple pages of entries and then remembering which page it's on so you can come back to it later. Please add sorting for PMR, points, current place, amount winning, etc. and filters for specific players and contests.
Thank you for the feedback, we will have our team look into these and possibly add them in the future.

Please add this.
Simple sort by winnings, points, sport etc like they have on FD and DK apps.
If someone plays a bunch of lineups they have no idea which ones to root for without clicking through 10 pages of lineups.
I would like to reiterate the necessity of this feature. I played a few hundred lineups across the NFL and NBA slates tonight and it was impossible to actively manage them and make adjustments after the start of the contests because of the lack of ability to sort and filter.
Why was my suggestion on cancellation procedures was moved to a comment here?
Add an option to either a) bulk cancel lineups up to 15 minutes before lock or b) email a support specialist to have them cancel entries for you up to 15 minutes before lock.
It currently takes 15-20 seconds to cancel a single entry right now. If you have 150 entries you're looking at half an hour to cancel every one. That feels disrespectful of your users time IMO.
Option B is offered by both DraftKings and FanDuel. Neither of them offer Option A but FanDuel's current process takes significantly less time on desktop web than DraftKings and Yahoo.
Cancellation is a basic courtesy to users and I don't understand why DFS sites make it so difficult. If you're worried about abuse then put some stipulations on it — if a user mass enters contests early in the day only to cancel them 30 minutes before lock and they do this more than once or twice in a given period of time, then restrict their ability to mass-enter or restrict their ability to cancel.
