My leagues are on CBS & ESPN. Has anyone heard if that fake punt TD will count for JAX D/ST? They stopped penalizing “points against”when a QB throws a pick-6, due to the fact the D/ST wasn’t on the field

Yeah I'm playing against Jags on Yahoo and would prolly cost me my week if they add 6 points ?

I'm assuming it's because the punt team is essentially considered offense because they are in possession of the ball at the snap. They would then be considered defense when the ball leaves the punters foot. ??‍♂️

Punt & kickoff return teams aren’t in possession at the snap, yet their TD’s count. If that’s their excuse, it’s weak

A fake punt TD is NOT a scoring category for a defense so it doesn’t count.

 

so stop wondering & whining

It’s obviously something that happened, so it should be a category. So shut your hole if you’re not interested

That's exactly what I said ?. I said punt team is in possession at snap so they ARE considered offense.

Yahoo says trade deadline has passed yesterday.

 

Does this mean we cannot make trades for the year?

Is anyone else on my fantasy league using IDP and not seeing any tackle for loss showing up this week?   I know like Lawrence had one on Perine and didn’t show and then I looked at rest of league and nobody in live Scoring has a TFL

My league in yahoo seems to show a lot of TFL when looking at the stats. I have to constantly check the box score on espn to confirm. Seems like the past 2 weeks they have adjustments on IDP 2-3 hours after the game. 

 

Not it sure if this is a yahoo issue or an issue because my league doesn’t use all of the default settings for IDP.

Anyone else see where ESPN looks to be getting rid of HTML code usage in their LM note?

 

 

 effectively ending any chat boxes, background codes, or image codes for league home pages etc.

 

Are the things im hearing about them doing this true? anyone able to confirm and maybe know why they would do this? they will lose a TON of fantasy leagues from this

 

didnt think this was an AC forum topic but if so a mod can move it there

 

thanks guys for any info

So i guess LM's were using the chats and codes and such to get malware into the other owners computers so ESPN said to heck with it

 

bummer, ESPN going to lose a lot of owners now, already lost one in my league from it hah

Coding got shut down in my leagues a couple of days ago. Thought maybe it was a tech problem at first, but apparently not. I haven't heard any news about it other than your post & not sure if anyone knows a work around. I'll have to do some research.

lol anyone see the new ratings and level for Yahoo Football? Reminds of back in the day playing Chess and Checkers on Yahoo Games...i.e. your rating can fluctuate depending on winning/losing versus the experience of your opponent...

Ratings and Levels Explained

 
 

We have introduced levels and ratings for players of Yahoo Fantasy Football. Simply stated, your rating measures your performance in Fantasy Football. Your level displays the rating group you are in. Here are some details about how it works and what you will see.

What is a Rating?

  • Rating is measure of your performance in Fantasy Football on Yahoo.
  • Your rating is set in a range from 0 - 1,000, where 1,000 is the highest rating and 0 is the lowest.
    • There may be some very rare cases where someone could have a rating below 0 or above 1,000.
  • The data used to calculate your rating cover your gameplay on Yahoo Fantasy from 2009 onwards.
    • We do display “Playing Since,” which obviously can pre-date 2009, but everything else is from 2009 on.
    • Unfortunately, we do not have everything we need to calculate ratings for seasons before 2009 at this time.
  • Rating is based on a range of factors:
    • How often you win your match-ups. The more you win, the higher your rating. The more you lose, the lower your rating.
    • The level of your competition. Beating amore highly-rated player will boost your rating more than beating a lower-rated player. Conversely, losing to a lower-rated player will drop your rating more than losing to a more highly-rated player.
    • How well you have played most recently. Your performance from last season and this season will have a significantly higher impact on your rating than prior seasons.
    • And, within limits, the number of leagues you play in also impacts your rating. If you are successful in more match-ups (i.e. you play in more leagues and win more often) the more your rating will increase.
  • Important: Rating is not a lifetime measurement. It is a measurement of your performance in the current and most recent previous seasons.
  • Your rating will update one time per week and you should see it update every Tuesday.

What are Levels?

  • Ratings are broken into five levels grouped by ratings and percentiles. The table below lists our levels from highest to lowest:
  Level Rating Percentiles
felo_nfl_diamond_mini@3x.png Diamond 900+ 99th
felo_nfl_platinum_mini@3x.png Platinum 800-899 95th-98th
felo_nfl_gold_mini@3x.png Gold 700-799 81st-94th
felo_nfl_silver_mini@3x.png Silver 600-699 60th-80th
felo_nfl_bronze_mini@3x.png Bronze 0-599 0-59th
  • At the end of each season since 2009, Yahoo stores your final rating and level for that season.
  • Best Finish shows the highest level you have achieved playing Yahoo Fantasy Football.
  • For example, if you have finished at a gold level two times, we will display Gold (x2).

Other Data

  • In addition to the level and rating, we will share other information about your game play in Yahoo Fantasy Football
    • Playing since: This shows the year you first played Yahoo Fantasy Football.
    • Teams managed: This shows the total number of fantasy football teams you have managed on Yahoo since 2009.
    • Record and winning %: This is the W-L-T record and winning percentage over every match-up you have played on Yahoo since 2009.
    • Trophies won: This is the total number of 1st, 2nd or 3rd place trophies you have won in Yahoo Fantasy Football leagues since 2009.
    • First place trophies won: We think you get this one.
  • Points Leagues
    • We do not calculate ratings for points-only leagues. Ratings cover head-to-head leagues only

Where Can I See Ratings and Levels?

  • We will display rating and level in two places: team pages and match-up pages
    • To see the rating and level of you and your opponent on a match-up page in a web browser, click the [vs.] symbol. Both Rating and Level will be displayed in the mobile app shortly.
    • You will see the rating on the Team page to the right of your team name in a web browser. This module has replaced the team slogan.
  • You can also view levels and ratings on match-ups and team pages other than your own.
  • Ratings and other info will be added to Fantasy Profiles in the near future.
  • Ratings are also coming to the Yahoo Fantasy mobile apps soon.

We have a Yahoo League that I run as a dyno. (which is terrible because nobody wants to move to MFL) Our league is over at 16 but I want to keep waivers open through 17 but the add is "greyed out". I tried emailing but all I got was a bot response after a few days. Does anyone know how to set the settings where we can still drop/add after the championship game? Its great to be in championship/consolation game but that is 4 teams that can't drop their kicker for a prospect...

I was surprised that Yahoo effectively ended our season as well too.   I could have sworn in years past that we were able to add after the championship game.  Our league is not dynasty but we have several keeper slots available.  Was planning on dropping some waiver guys that started for me so I could take some fliers and see what happens at the start of next year.  Guess that's not available to me now.
