Fantasy Ratings and Levels


Fantasy Ratings and Levels measure your performance against your opponents. It’s based on your gameplay and is updated throughout the fantasy season. At the end of each season you’ll have a final Level and Rating.

  1. Rating Scheme is Horrible

    This rating system ultimately rewards players who play and "win" in a lot of weak leagues, as that is the best way to game this system. There are so many other dimensions of good fantasy players that are ignored. For example, how does a team do with the pickups they made in that week? Does the owner check in regularly to make sure that their players are active? How good are the owner's trades? Did the player win in an active league or a dead one? Basically this system only rewards league champs. Not really useful IMO

  3. I dont understand why you are using 2009 as the year to start to use rankings from. some of my best seasons are before that, use ALL seasons

    Use all the seasons people played yahoo fantasy baseball, not just a random year of 2009, it makes literally zero sense

  4. Needs a leaderboard

    From a gamification standpoint, why would I care about my ranking if I can't see it compared to others? There doesn't seem to be any reward for attaining a higher level, other than having a higher level displayed in my team page. This appears to just be noise on the page. I'd honestly prefer just having my trophy case from previous seasons available somewhere on my team page so my opponents would have to stare at my previous triumphant victories while they look over my player list.

  5. I won all 4 of my leagues, and exceeded point projections yet lost 17 points. I think there was a bug with this ranking.

    I won all 4 of my leagues, and exceeded point projections yet lost 17 points. I think there was a bug with this ranking stemming from the points issue this morning.

  6. Week 11 scoring and league record updated, but player rating not updated.

    After Week 11 the glitch that occurred with player points caused me to be 6-5 instead of 7-4. That part of the glitch was corrected and my league standings are not correct, however my player ranking is decreased from where it was after week 10. Are player rankings going to be corrected as well to reflect the actual results of week 11?

  8. Hard to understand the rating system

    How does the rating system work? Is it possible to get to 1000+?

  9. Excessive Ranking Demotion

    Don't punish for a bad season of Fantasy Football; How I went from Gold to Bronze it's like the championships mean nothing

  10. Ratings should be based on Owners (Playoff Appearances and Championships)

    The current metrics used does not accurately reflect the best owners in the league (those who win). Statistics should not be based on projections but management; therefore, playoff appearances and number of medals should provide good metrics for ratings. They should also be tailored to individual leagues. Some leagues are more competitive than others.

  11. Love what you are doing with the Fantasy history, ratings and levels. Would it be possible to include head-to-head matchups all time between

    Love what you are doing with the Fantasy history, ratings and levels. Would it be possible to include head-to-head matchups all-time between owners. I have played in a Yahoo! League with my friends since 2006, with the same core group still intact, and we love it. Being able to see who is the all-time leader in matchups between the two managers would be an amazing addition!

    Keep up the great work,
    Tim

  12. Fail

    I see no point in this. I measure my performance against my opponents in wins and losses which is the whole point of fantasy sports to begin with.

  14. So what we've learned here is that nobody reads, or is able to read. The criteria are CLEARLY defined.

    All of this weeping, "I won a game, and I din't get many points",
    'I'm bronze and a new player is bronze, too", "I've won trophies, but I'm only Gold". The formula is right there in the explanation. Recent games matter more. Playing in many leagues matters more. Beating a highly-ranked team matters more. Winning matchups matters more. It's a recipe of stats, not a single item. Winning a few games will not make you Diamond, in the top 1% of fantasy players, like me. I LOVE this feature, as well as the owner comparisons.

  15. Needs to be option to turn of display

    Having the rating be displayed by the league logo should absolutely be an OPTIONAL feature (ie. one that we can turn off).

    I run a just-for-fun league just to keep buddies in touch, and we honestly don't care enough about this kind of thing to be "rated", and it's just distracting.

    Please allow us to disable it!

    Hey Seth, thanks very much for your feedback on the new feature. I’ll pass it along to our product team for consideration.

  16. Won a Championship, lost points.

    I'm only in two leagues. I won my Championship in one this week, lost the semi-final in my other league. Winning a championship and losing the semis netted me a 4 point loss, is this pretty common? I thought you'd get a decent boost for winning a title, maybe I'm just ignorant of the scoring. Can anyone break this down for me?

  18. Yahoo-wide leaderboard for top 1-percentile in the Diamond rating

    I wud really love to see a Yahoo-wide leaderboard for that top 1-percentile in the Diamond rating. Since Yahoo already has all managers categorized and ranked within Yahoo it shouldn’t be too much work to display in our fantasy profiles and leagues a leaderboard link. If not for the top say 10% then for the top 1% of all managers… or at least a leaderboard presenting da creme of the creme - maybe the top 100 Yahoo managers in Diamond territory? You know… I’m talking here about a manager leaderboard much like MLB The Streak does in their app. Idk…

  20. I outscored my my projection, had the highest point spread in the league, and have won 6 of my last 7, but I only went up by 6.

    I'm not really sure how this makes sense, as my opponent this week gained 16 last week, while scoring 50 points less than me, and not meeting his projection.
