I would have given this 3 votes, but only had 2 left. So I spent my last penny here!
I notice (remembered) that the "Keeper Cost" shows for all keepers for the entire year. So when I go to look at the final rosters from LAST year in order to pick my keepers, those who were also kept last year, show the round they were picked in.
What would happen if this field (at any time up until keeper selections are made) were:
1) editable by the Commish
2) available for ALL players (even those who were not keeper the previous year)
While it might be a bit of work for the Commish (until automation was able to be added by Yahoo, of course) would allow all owners to see the cost of their potential keepers to aid them in making decisions on their keeper.
My indenting got stripped. in the next to last paragraph, the numbering between the first "3" and the "4" should be 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3.Tom shared this idea ·

Yes, after the Commish sets the draft order (snaking/non-snaking), individual picks can then be moved to account for trades if necessary.
After the order of picks is determined, the Commish can then assign any player to any any draft pick. So a player kept in round 16 (of 20) could be put in round 16 for the correct owner before the draft. When that owner's 16th round pick comes up, the player will be auto-drafted.

While I don't currently play in any leagues with such restrictions, I have in the past and know that many do play in such leagues. I like Yahoo's FF software and advocate for it in various forums. It would be nice to be able to tell other potential users that Yahoo supports this feature.
Fantasy football is about adding another level of enjoyment to a game we love. Different folks want/find enjoyable different formats/features.
To criticize someone for having different likes than your own is a bit self-centered at best. There are all sorts of formats - "Best ball" for example that limit the "risks". Some folks like it. As the original poster pointed out, there is not much difference here than having "Team defense" as a category.
For me personally, I say no thanks. But Yahoo adding a format that allowed a league to designate "Team" rather than individual players for any (or all) positions would hurt no one, should not be hard to implement, and might add more enjoyment for some folks. I don't see a problem.

Yahoo has a great fantasy product. Pre-draft ranking is the ugly step-ton though. Off the top of my head here are a few needed features:
1) Search by name
2) Filter by Rookie
3) Filter by IDP
4) Allow reordering your list by dragging or a modifiable field next to the player.For example, I add a player to my list. He enters as player 301 (I do go that deep) in the list but I want him to be in my top 20. I currently have to click "Move up" 280 TIMES! Allow me to drag him up or let me see 301 and replace it with 20.

This thread has turned into a gathering spot for drafting enhancements. There are some good ideas here! Yahoo, send this thread onto your developers so they can give it a look see!

Jumping in again to say.... Please! Please! Please!

Certainly to implement this would be with the caution that if the backup was on another roster, the owner of the player who was injured would be out of luck.
Based upon this, that some owners would be lucky (because no other owner had the backup player) and some owners would be unlucky (because another owner did own the backup), I think in the end, this idea doesn't work. To me, it would create an unlevel playing field which would be worse than the problem it is trying to correct.
Please! Please! Please! It is a pain having to have to walk team by team thru the league, copying and pasting into excel or a text editor. Then due to the html formatting, it is a pain cleaning up the teams into a format that is usable.

As others have said, you can run a dynasty league in Yahoo without too much difficulty. Simply change the number of keepers allowed to include the entire roster.
There are a few things that could really improve this though:
1) Leave the league open year round. Yahoo is getting better and better on this front. They just auto-renewed my league from last year. The "opening" date used to be in July. So it is only February thru May that the league is now shut down. Hopefully next year the option to remain open year round will become available.
2) Make it a bit easier to import the previous years rosters. Actually rather than have to "import" then, have them be always available with the same owners. Then the only change that need to be made would be to transfer the team should a previous owner exit the league.
3) Give the draft a few more automatic options. With Custom Draft order, the commish can certainly do whatever needs to be done.
But for example, some leagues put all keepers into the first or last rounds of the draft. For a 15-payer roster with 6 keepers, this in effect, takes the keepers off the table and simply leaves a 9-round draft to flesh out the roster. Having an option to auto-configure the draft like this would be sweet for such leagues. This would not affect me personally as I no-longer play in any league with this format, but it might attract more leagues to Yahoo.
