    Last season was April 24th, after the draft.

    I would expect roughly the same time this season.

    Kelly, all settings, including the settings that can be changed during the season, are locked after the last game. Yahoo! does not currently support year round access for their fantasy sports.

    Yahoo! does not support fantasy sports year round. For football, the league settings lock after the last game is played and can be changed when the league is renewed next year. One reason this is done is to prevent league scoring settings from being changed affecting the outcome of the previous season. It also doesn't pay for Yahoo! to support a fantasy sport during that sport's dead months.

    Yahoo! does not support year round activity for fantasy sports. What the commish can do is keep track of the trade during the off season, then after renewing the league next season, process the trade using commish tools.

    In a private league, just ask the commish to expand the rosters.

    I would not expect this to be changed.

    The main reason is because there are days during the week when there are near full schedules, meaning all 13 of your players have games but you can only start 10. Your opponent, on the other hand, has only 9 players with games.

    This does not give you a 4 game advantage for this specific date. It give you a 1 player advantage.

    Another reason is players being sat in either the 1st or 2nd game of back-to-back sets, especially the older players and players dealing with nagging injuries. Just using the team's schedule to count possible games does not factor in situations like this where it is known the player won't play in every game.

    It's all fair in the long run. If you want game limits, play roto

    At he end of the season, every team has played 82 games. The differences in games played per week evens out over the season.

    This cannot be done in the game.

    A league is H2H or points, it cannot be both.

    Using week 17 is a terrible option in any format, since most teams will be out of the playoff hunt and just wanting to finish the season without getting anyone hurt.

    The player who muffs the kick is charged with a fumble in the Yahoo! game, but not the D/ST.

    I can tell you penalty related scoring will never be part of the game.

    As to giving points to a player when their team wins, that won't happen either, because there is no way of knowing if the player contributed to the win.

    Unfortunately no. The bracket formats have been available for the commish and all members of the league all season for review.

    The 8 team option has never had a consolation bracket for the other 8 teams on Yahoo! You must have been playing on another site.

    The greatest number of teams that make the playoffs is 12 and that is by using the 6x6 format.

    They can, on paper. They can set their "official" roster and give it to the commish. After the games, the commish and players can use the info on Yahoo! for the players to accumulate the scores.

    This is currently possible in the game.

    If a pitcher is scheduled to start either game of a DH, they will have a green dot next to their name and they can be started for the 2nd game.

    You just need to have them in your active roster before the first game starts.

    First, ties in fantasy football are a very rare occurrence, especially with fractional scoring, but that is the default option for public and Pro leagues.

    In private leagues, the commish can opt out of this tie breaker and go with just seeding.

    H2H only matters in the playoff tiebreaker and only if the commish selected that option in the league.

    You can find the above in NOTES at the top of your league page. You can do what you want, you just have to do a little work.

    So yes, you CAN, set up the bracket the way you want to.

    H2H results are not used in season tiebreakers. Only in the playoffs if the commish chose the option.

    Then you need to have a points based league. This can't be done in H2H leagues.

    Steve Huslig commented  · 

    Head 2 head results can be used as a tiebreaker in the playoffs in private leagues, but the season tiebreaker is based on how you did against the league, not a specific team.

    Public and Pro leagues have position limits. In private leagues, it is left up to the commish to control their own league.

    Your commish can control this by making it a league rule, and if someone exceeds the number of players per position the commish can remove them from the player's roster using Edit Roster and/or lock the team.

    One hole in your argument, for public leagues, Yahoo! assigns players randomly to the league. They have some basic edits in place to prevent players from teaming up as you describe.

    No other games on Yahoo! have this restriction. You can have 10 QBs or 10 RPs in baseball or 10 G's in Hockey if you want.

    The problem with that is some commishs would pause for hours, if not days, and that cannot be supported by the infrastructure.

    Offline drafts are always the best option if you have time constraint concerns.

    Send text messages and/or emails to the remote player so they can keep up with the picks.

    Skype and similar products would be useful for situations like this.

    Football uses 10 as the default for the number of teams in a league and that's why they have the playoffs set up as 4x4

    You can always create your own league with the number of teams and playoff settings you want next season.

    So you don't draft any Cowboys, Chiefs, Patriots or Falcons since they don't play in week 1?

    Or you wait for week 2, but you don't know who the winners are for week 1?

    Too many complications.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Steve Huslig commented  · 

    The difference is the default league size for baseball, hockey and basketball is 12 teams while football only has 10. That is why the default bracket is 4 x 4 in public and pro leagues.

    In private leagues the 6 team option is available for the commish to select.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Steve Huslig commented  · 

    There is an option to send 6, top 2 get byes.

    Winners move on and play 1 and 2.

    The math doesn't work out.

    5 teams start the playoffs, 1 team on bye.

    3 plays 4

    Winners move on.

    Now you have 3 teams in the next round.

    It is not possible on Yahoo! You will have to do it on paper. And if you chose the lock eliminated teams option, they won't be able to add any players, just rearrange their current roster.

    Yahoo! will produce the numbers for you, so you don't have to track individual players, you just need to look their totals up on Tuesday.

    Your commish can do that today. There is an option for the division winners to get byes, then the rest of the bracket is filled based on points. The commish can use Edit Team Points to change the results of previous games to control which teams make the playoffs.

    Making the playoffs is how you did against the league, not a specific team. In standard 10 team leagues, not every team plays every other team twice in the regular season like is done in the NFL for divisions.

    The ST points go to the D, and the K and P return setting numbers go to the D and to IDP players if your league uses that setting.

    Steve Huslig commented  · 

    The option to count return yards is available in private leagues. Also, the TDs scored by the K and P returner count for the DST already, and if your rostered WR, like Beasley with Dallas, scores on a kick return, he gets the 6 points.

    In IDP leagues, if one of your DBs returns a kick for a TD, they get the 6 points and yardage.
