In our league there is a large emphasis on IDP drafting. They score well and a well drafted IDP squad can win you games.
Our league has been using Yahoo Fantasy since 2005!. We added IDP soon after and it make our league unique. Yahoo provides an amazing system for using these players and we wouldn't use any other program, however there lies major issues when it comes to exploiting defensive roster spots.
Our league is deep with 14 teams and in addition to the standard offensive spots we have 8 IDP positions. This makes it very hard for a team to manage the limited 5 bench spots we have in our league along with the IDP players. So to remedy this we added one additional bench spot only to be filled with a Defensive position player. Let the shenanigans begin. Teams would use this spot mid week to add offensive talent and decide who to drop last minute, along with a multitude of other ways to cheat with this bench spot. Our league to fix this added stiff fines such as 0 points for the week and an automatic loss for violating this rule.
Yahoo please this can all be fixed by just assigning a separate bench for defensive players only. then players can protect their draft investments without the fear of dropping the very little bench talent they have in our super deep league.
Please do this. Please its so simple!
