    Also, It has been #1 ranked for 1.5 years. Where is some action?

    Funny how my original post on this thread regarding keeper leagues, and the ability to trade and make actions from championship week and the draft was posted on June 14, 2014. Still gathering feedback Yahoo!? C'mon. Since then my original posts seem to have been hidden/expired and the topic heading changed... because it's been so long I'll assume. Hahaha! It still needs to be addressed years later, as other sites are moving forward. Yahoo! remains trailing the pack of other sites whom have already adopted year-round keeper abilities multiple years ago.

    Well, Yahoo! We have made no progress have we?! This post is over a year old, and has been the most popular thread for that long as well. Our status is still showing "Gathering Feedback", and no changes have been make to this years version of Fantasy Football '15. I cannot be because there is a logistical issue, or competitive balance issue, because the other sites offer my suggestions as the norm of playing in leagues on their sites.

    Example: ESPN (another free fantasy site) is only closed down for approximately 1 week per year and offers Keeper League trading year-round minus the Commissioner controlled cut-off during the playoffs. Then is free fro the commissioner to edit all rosters for trades and draft picks again. It's super awesome, and light years ahead of Yahoo! After over a decade of loyal Yahoo! re-draft leagues in multiple sports, we have considered moving our Keeper League if this didn't get solved this upcoming year. Which makes us get familiar with other sites, and move our re-draft leagues away from Yahoo! too.

    Color me disappointed that this is the most popular suggestion thread for over a year, and has seen no results, notifications of action, or explanation of why it cannot change. This could be our last year here after over a decade of -redraft leagues. But for my keeper league, Yahoo! is less superior than other free sites. I have already created an off-Yahoo! website to track our past years results, trades, and upcoming draft pick that were traded. If we spend half of our fantasy year playing off the site of Yahoo! because if its limitations compared to other sites, what is the point of creating league here anymore? And spending half our season playing on my own created site, doesn't help your advertisers either.

    I hope to see this in the fixed column soon. Until then, vote if you agree, post if you have something to say, and generally let yourself be heard for change!

    In my other ESPN keeper league we are trading players, adding/dropping on the waiver wire, and editing players on our trading block to keep communication lines open and offers coming in. Basically all functions available during the course of season play, we are doing right now months before our draft, and year-round. It only closes for a month per year, and we have every ability of the league at all times to edit rosters, trade, pick up prospects from the waiver wire, have up-to-date rosters, etc.. Why can't Yahoo! stay on par with the other sites?

    Nice work Yahoo!! Delete any posts are necessary for anyone impersonating Yahoo!. Kudos!

    Now people can get back to actually making suggestions regarding the need to edit rosters so that keeper leagues can keep their rosters up-to-date months away from the NFL schedule. Opening the trade feature all year will allow for the off-season trades to be put through as well. As long as there are options to custom any cut-off dates that each league chooses, we can easily have this problem solved.

    Eg. If a league chooses to have no trade deadline at all, we should be able to trade players all the way though the playoffs (even though we don't as a "gentleman's agreement" in my leagues to try to have the longest extended trading timelines), but we should be able to trade after championship week as well, instead of it closing right away. We purposely chose "No Trade Deadline" for this feature, but it disappointingly cuts off. "No trade deadline" apparently means "3 more weeks" currently.

    If a commissioner chooses the option the import last years rosters (as it prompts you to choose when renewing a keeper league) it should automatically have the option imported to edit rosters at any time. Then the keepers can be set, then the league can draft the correct players. Even if the trade feature is off, the commish should always be able to edit things. Now, the commish has to set the draft manually, but I don't know how you set a keeper that is not currently on your roster, and the commish cannot put them onto your roster.

    As far as the trade timelines, I suggest a beginning and end date to have the commissioner set and edit up until the draft occurs, then it freezes, just like most options. In a perfect world, I would set my league to be able to trade from the day the league is renewed (or possibly start when all teams are finalized if all teams need to be present first). Then I would have the trades suspended for a certain amount of weeks during the playoffs (which we do as gentlemen currently), then open again when a champion has won, and then open until the league actually closes. I know that Yahoo! opened earlier than ever this year, and are probably aiming to have as little downtime as possible between seasnons. If this suggested way with a hiatus isn't possible, we would gladly have the trades never close, and have a "gentleman's agreement" to not trade in weeks 12-16. A commish can reverse any shenanigan's with this anyway, but that hiatus in the middle of a fully open trading league would be fantastic!

    Either way, our league has been staring at our teams that don't even have the correct players on them since the day the league opened with no recourse. It's not awesome, and a third party site we are forced to use daily alongside to chat and make offers because it contain all of the information and correct rosters, is I'm sure the opposite of what Yahoo! wants to see.

    A sarcastic thank-you to the jerk of a user posing as "Yahoo! Product Support" on multiple Feedback topics. I'm sure we all impressed by your cowardly rouse to deter people that honestly help to make these sites better for everyone. I'm sure we'll hear from you again, being that you have enough time in your sad, pathetic life to seek out new ways to throw wrenches into the proverbial gears of progress.

    To others: keep posting to show Yahoo! that we as users need more functionality with the site constantly as our Fantasy leagues continue to grow in numbers and creativity. We'll continue to suggest the options we need to see, or what other free Fantasy Sports sites can do currently that Yahoo! does not.

    From what I can gather, it won't let you edit rosters as a commissioner or trade players between teams until the Keeper Selection Date has past, which just handcuffs leagues that play all year and trade players and picks constantly. I ask, is the keeper declaration that important? It isn't in Custom Private leagues, because the commish sets each keeper into draft position manually in a Custom Order. I know as manager, I set the entire draft manually with keepers and traded picks I have logged. So, it is puzzling why I cannot edit rosters with the trades that we have already made off line, and let players know whom is on which team to begin with.

    Maybe that is the difference that needs to be looked at. For custom private leagues, all abilities of trading and editing rosters should be open all the time. Maybe not for public Keeper/Dynasty leagues, because it might cause problems when people don't know each other at all, and there could be collusion and cheating. Declaring Keepers in an auto-draft may be important too for both Private and Public leagues, but that should be a stipulation of an auto-draft, not all leagues.

    Again Custom Leagues should have the ability to alter anything they see fit, and the league should be closed for the least amount of time possible a year. That is the fun of a custom league, being active on Yahoo! everyday!

    I am actually blown away that I can't edit my league's teams with our off-season trades in a dynasty/keeper league. This seems like the simplest of solutions, and huge oversight! Why does setting your keepers have anything to do with editing a roster?

    On top of that, you cannot trade in the off-season as well. What the **** is the point of selecting a setting to not have a trade deadline in our league, if you can ONLY trade after the draft and it ends championship week?!?! We play all year Yahoo!! Why do we have to use a 3rd party webpage to track transactions for this site in the offseason?

    C'mon Yahoo! Trades and Editing rosters are needed by dynasty/keeper leagues 100% of the time!

    I would support an additional feature to set up a "Toilet Bowl" scenario by a Commisioner's manual match-up. We currently keep track of the scores on the message board for a 3 week total points stand-off for the worst place trophy. It is the last two teams of a 14 team keeper league that don't make the consolation side..

    I believe you are asking for the wrong change. The mock draft app is just a generality and not custom to each leagues custom rules. As far as real "competative" drafts, they cannot be different from the mock draft simulator, and take into account hundreds of thousands of auto-pick leagues. If you eliminated filling the starting positions first before moving to the bench players, you could pick 3 bench QB's in a row, as it picks the highest ranked player available. Hence, your suggestion it messes with the algorithm to pick players for you, though it does bring to light a change that is viable

    What Yahoo! needs to do is offer what other sites have. That is a preference to what position you would like to draft in each round. It lists each round with a drop-down menu of positions you prefer to draft in this round. I believe some even have secondary position preferences. It picks your highes ranked of that position in each round that you suggest it to. In this option, you can tell your auto-pick that you do not want a Defense or Kicker until the final 2 rounds, and it will draft he best available in that round only. It also allows you to pick each other round. If you want 3 RB's in RD1-3, and not a QB until RD6 (but no later) you can make those preferences and it will auto pick it for you. Along with your pre-draft rankings, it can customize deeper into auto-picking a team you have more control choosing!

    Other sites are miles ahead of Yahoo! auto-pick options and pre-draft rankings regarding applying to the draft itself, and mock drafts.

    That is the suggestion that we are looking for people! Vote and suggest on a more specific and viable thread here:

    It would be interesting to have an option to hide the player making the bids, only if you want it to, bot by default. Some of fun is knowing what your competitors needs are to predict their needs, and drive up the price, or knowing that you can get player "A" cheaper. I like the option for a commish to make.

    Yahoo! is the worst at changing or adding new options, check out my Keeper post to be able to edit rosters due to off-site and off-season trades for keeper leagues. It was been over a year at #1 most popular... and still "gather feedback". That is Yahoo! code for "We're igonoring you", even though our competitors offer this this option.

    I support this post as an option for commissioners to choose fraction/non-fraction kicker scoring.
