  1. BEST FF Site - Draft Slot?

    I've never used Yahoo Fantasy Football (just starting a league this year), but for baseball, basketball and hockey Yahoo allows the Commish to place players in any round after the keeper deadline. If I'm understanding you correctly.

    The relative importance of your draft depends on your league depth. My league is 20 teams, 23-man rosters, so the importance of a good draft is higher. Three of those five guys UberRebel named were drafted in my league.

    Lol. I don't love or hate any specific stat. Well, maybe my fantasy teams' wins I was just wondering if anyone knew the difference between an MLB official stat and an MLB unofficial stat, and its relevance for fantasy.

    What is the relevance of that fact? To be honest, I'm not even sure what the fact means. I know MLB says it isn't official, yet there they are tracked on their site, as well as a definition.

    Not necessarily. Depends on your league settings.

    To each his/her own, but I prefer H2H as it's good for my keeper league. Eight of the 20 teams make the playoffs and the chance at a playoff upset keeps the owners of those eight good teams engaged. Plus it's fun. Just like MLB playoffs. Also, that's where rivalries are born between league-mates. For me it's not about dominating or being the best. It's about fun. And that's good for the league long-term.
  8. There seems to be a problem for a least of couple of us in my league with accessing the league group chat on the app. It appears to be working on the desktop version though. Anyone else experiencing this?
  9. We have a Facebook group for our league. You can do polls there.
  10. If we could use these types of players like MLB teams do then we'd only be able to start them at those positions for a handful of games. I assume you want to use them at the new positions more than that. I like the approach Yahoo and ESPN take that the player needs to play at a position for some minimum critical mass of games at a position before we can play them there all the time. That way fantasy players can't exploit some one-off (or two or three-off) appearance at a position.
  11. Yes, come to think of it you are correct. We only do online drafts and the keepers are really only assigned to teams when the online draft begins. Thanks for the clarification.
  12. Must be a miscommunication here. I've commished Yahoo keeper leagues for years. Online draft (i.e. not auction). I click the automatically assign keepers and voila! I have easier settings (i.e. no specific rounds) so it works great for me. But I can see if you have a more complicated set up it wouldn't work. But I'm a simple man You just overstated it by saying it has zero functionality. Maybe for your setup but not everyone's.
