    It won't be any different at ESPN. Stat corrections come directly from the NFL and don't come out until Thursdays. You will experience the exact same thing at ESPN that you do at Yahoo!.

    @Joe Laviolette:

    Your tiebreaker setting did not involve how to handle teams tied in the standings. It involved how to handle playoff matchups that end in a tie. Normally, such tied matchups in the regular season just count as ties in the standings (1/2 win + 1/2 loss) and you just move on to the next week; however in the playoffs, you can't have ties.

    Teams tied in the standings (7-5-2 = 8-6-0) have their own set of tiebreakers (the first being total points for), and these tiebreakers cannot be altered in any way, not even by a commissioner (nor should they be). Head-to-head season record never even comes into play here in fantasy.

    It's likely the commissioner settings; although I believe that ANY team in a league that has at the very least ANYTHING to play for (whether it be for a third-place game, a game in a consolation bracket, or even just for total points in the league if that means anything) should have just as much right to make any roster moves of any kind (waiver claims, free agent pickups, etc.) to improve his/her team, and should be able to do so without any special restrictions whatsoever.

    @Travis Teschner: Why do you even have a player from an earlier played game in your Flex?

    In particular, if you're starting more than one player from a particular position which would include starting one such in your Flex, then the player from that position that should go in your Flex spot should always be the one whose game starts the latest in the week, which is NOT necessarily the "weakest player" (fantasy wise) of those from that position. This gives you more FLEXibility in the event that something unexpected should come up that would require you to make a change.

    @Anonymous: The opening poster is referring to real life trades (such as Carlos Hyde being traded from the Browns to the Jaguars, which then significantly increased the stock of Browns RB Nick Chubb), not fantasy trades in one's fantasy league.

    Even if I were in a dynasty league, I would prefer to "disconnect" during the off season. I have other things to do.

    @Ronald Mazzei: The "Weekly Recaps" are probably being done by "bots". There's absolutely no way any one human being can write up what would be separate recaps for each of the millions of Yahoo! fantasy matchups each week.

    If you dropped a player by accident, explain the situation to your commish so that such player will immediately be returned to your roster (don't make this a habit, however).

    However, if you meant to drop the player, then you're basically stating to all of the other owners in your league that you don't want that player anymore (even though that might not really be the case). Dropping a player exposes such player to all the other owners in the league who might want him; and just as in the real world of sports general-managing, the owner who waived him must wait until he clears waivers to reclaim him.

    I believe in Yahoo! (as opposed to ESPN), you CAN drop players that played earlier in the week … provided that they were on your bench and not in your starting lineup.

    In fact, most of the complaints I hear on these boards is that one should NOT be able to drop players that played earlier in the week, including those left on one's bench.

    I believe what is being asked for here is the option for a two-week final (could be Weeks 15 & 16, if one doesn't want to use Week 17). I'm sure other sites have that option, and Yahoo! uses such format as the default in its baseball head-to-head leagues (Weeks 25-26). I just wonder why Yahoo! doesn't offer a two-week final even as an option for their head-to-head football leagues.

    The commissioner already has the power to "mute" other managers.

    Commissioner Tools -> Manage Other Teams -> Lock Teams.

    The problem here is that there's nothing in the box score indicating either the player benefiting from the DPI call or the player guilty of the OPI call; thereby making this an individual stat impossible to track.

    Personally, I believe that as long as team has something to play for (whether it's for 3rd place in the main playoff bracket, 9th place in the consolation bracket, or even just for total points if that's relevant), then the team should be allowed to make roster moves (waiver claims, free agent adds, etc.) just like any other team in the league.

    There is a commissioner setting that allows for the locking of eliminated teams in general; however, I don't know if this setting applies just to those teams who literally have nothing to play for, or to all teams eliminated from championship contention (such as all the teams in the consolation bracket, and maybe even the teams playing the 3rd place game of the main bracket).

    The only change you're really suggesting is a two-week final since all playoff formats are currently single-game elimination anyway.

    @Nick: You don't need Yahoo! to set up your consolation brackets; just set them up yourself and inform the bottom eight teams and let them play it out. Business as usual.

    If a manager has a player in the IR slot when such player is no longer IR eligible, then the manager will not be able to add new players (waiver claims, free agents, trades, etc.) onto the roster until this situation is rectified.

    Other than these restrictions, the manager is not obligated to remove the player from the IR slot.

    It's also noteworthy that every once in a while, a punter (e.g., Patrick O'Donnell) can get credit for TD pass!

    @Jeff: How would you expect Yahoo! to handle the situation if you drop your starting kicker for a QB?

    In other words, whenever you add a player onto your roster, the added player ALWAYS goes onto your bench. It is your responsibility to put that player into your starting lineup.
