    That might not be fair to your opponents in H2H daily leagues. PPD's are what they are and you just need to suck it up and manage with what you got when rain gets in the way. Btw, very often PPD's are made up with a double-header the very next day or later on in the season. That means you'll get to make up for it with extra starts from those PPD'd players the previous day. Giving you extra moves through that IL+ idea in baseball that you are suggesting, will be unfair to your opponents, unless they too had the same number of PPD's you had and got to also claim another player for each PPD. See what I mean? If they didn't have any PPD's, and hence didn't get to make any extra player claims to replace PPD's, they'll likely end up with less starts than you at the end of the week. In hockey perhaps that's not a problem but I wouldn't know coz I don't play the hockey game so don't know the ins n outs.

    Good to see y'all had already started this petition for DTD to become an extension of the IL in fantasy baseball and basketball. I guess I was too lazy to check for similar petitions the other day before posting my petition for the same thing.

    Anyway, I asked everyone in my 10-yr keeper cash league to stop by to vote it up. So in checking the ranking for the petition now I see that Yahoo has merged our petitions since they are basically rooting for the same. That's actually a good thing.

    Yahoo has also merged my petition as a comment in your petition, which you can see in this comments section.

    We are now 30th in the ranking. So let's go guys... let's continue to spread this around. Post the link to this petition in all your Yahoo fantasy leagues, regardless of sport. I'm sure many of the guys in hockey and football leagues also field baseball and basketball leagues on Yahoo. We really DO need DTD to work more like IL/ IR for all sports.

    It would be great if Yahoo were to assign the IL designation to injured players who are expected to be out for an extended period of time due to surgery or a bad injury early on before the season. Having to wait until April for MLB to officially place those players on their official IL does not seem right. It is more than obvious that some of those players will be on the IL for a month or two, perhaps longer. Good examples of the type of injured players I speak of are Zack Britton, who just got surgery and is expected out until June at the earliest, and Seth Lugo, who also got surgery and is expected out until at least mid May. Those guys are currently DTD and occupying bench spots because DTD is not really considered a real designation by Yahoo. DTD is basically just there for looks.. It serves no real purpose other than let you know the player may have a nagging injury or something is up with him that may keep him out of the lineup. But many truly injured players are often given the DTD label and their fantasy owners can't move them out of the way since DTD is no real designation. Early on the season, DTD keeps fantasy owners from moving injured players out of the way to target temporary replacements in prep for the start of the season. Like Britton and Lugo, there are many other even more valuable players with the DTD tag. Injured players that are likely months away from returning. But it would be a mistake to just cut them in deeper leagues or in keeper/ Dynasty formats. It seems particularly unfair for us that play the H2H format and have a limited number of moves allowed per week (Acq/ Week) to have to wait until after April 1 when MLB officially places their injured on the IL. At that point we will be forced to use our valuable (and limited) Acq/ Week moves for week 1 just to fill those spots... something we could have done much earlier without having to spare a week 1 move to do it. Yahoo, we know you are just playing by the book by making us wait for MLB to label injured players w/ the IL designation. But at the very least please make DTD a real injury designation or consider creating a new designation - say like, TO for Temporarily Out (much like y'all did for COVID-19 players) - so that we may get some of the injured players (the ones with surgeries and extended recoveries ahead) out of the way until they are officially placed on the IL by their teams once MLB kicks off. This will give us a chance to continue making roster moves and prepping up ahead of April 1 without having to use our limited week 1 roster moves (for those in H2H formats). Nothing much to ask… just create sort of a transient IL (a Temporarily Out) designation where we can get important injured players out of the way without having to drop them. In fact, it would be even easier if the DTD designation worked the same as the COVID-19 designation. All of those injured players I speak of are currently labeled as DTD, even though we all know many will be out for weeks or months. Why not make the DTD designation a temporary IL designation that will allow us to put injured players away for a few days until players either go on the extended IL or get healthy? Like the COVID-19 designation for players with Covid or for those that have been quarantined due to suspicion of Covid. It will help everyone tremendously, especially as stated, early on before the season begins; and it will be even more useful for those in H2H leagues that can only make a limited number of weekly FA/ waiver transactions after April 1.

    Good idea for those of us that like the slow drafts.

    We hold ours on a Google Sheets spreadsheet online. So it's an offline draft. Lots of fun though. Our draft usually takes 8-11 days. First few years it used to take like 16 or 17 days to get it done. But after 10 years of doing it we knock it off in like 8 or so.

    Maybe if Yahoo had longer timer options as you petition, we would consider doing ours on Yahoo. But our offline draft has gotten pretty elaborate w/ OTC timer and a bunch of other stuff. Very creative and intense. Lots of fun, much like the real thing.

    I'm voting up your idea.

    100% in agreement of increased roster size. They should just let the league Commissioners set their own roster size. My 10-yr keeper league is already maxed out to 30, but I wish I could increase it some to say 36 or even 40. Love the deep formats. Voted up.

    Please consider voting up my suggestion for making the DTD a real designation that we can use to stash injured players out of the way while waiting for them to be given the IL designation. Thanks.

    Just realized someone had brought this up already so I gave it my vote and hope others support this idea to make it a Yahoo Sports initiative for our game.

    I wud really love to see a Yahoo-wide leaderboard for that top 1-percentile in the Diamond rating. Since Yahoo already has all managers categorized and ranked within Yahoo it shouldn’t be too much work to display in our fantasy profiles and leagues a leaderboard link. If not for the top say 10% then for the top 1% of all managers… or at least a leaderboard presenting da creme of the creme - maybe the top 100 Yahoo managers in Diamond territory? You know… I’m talking here about a manager leaderboard much like MLB The Streak does in their app. Idk it seems like something fun we'd look at everyday and marvel/ brag about to our heart’s content.
