Agree this needs to be addressed. When two or more NFL teams have games canceled due to COVID, it puts pressure on Fantasy Team Managers who essentially have extra byes to contend with. Going forward it is likely there will be further cancelations and the NFL will not be able to just move bye weeks around. Yahoo sports should adopt a policy of allowing players on NFL teams that have had their game moved DUE TO COVID, to be placed on IR rather than have them clog up a Fantasy Team Manager's bench. I have slotted 5 IR positions in our league to deal with COVID this year, but frankly, with Yahoo's policy on COVID designations it makes those spots useless from a practical standpoint.
SLEEPER, another fantasy platform, gives every player on a team that does not play due to COVID a COVID designation. Certainly since Yahoo has added COVID as a designation and programmed the IR slot to accept it, Yahoo could create a designation like GCDC (Game Canceled Due to COVID), or something such as this, and program the IR slot to accept it.
Please consider changing this policy.
