Yahoo Fantasy Rules Changes Needed/Playoff Changes as well
Rule Change: Since its a common fact in most if not all sporting even that require teams, why not have a rule that causes a Fantasy Team to FORFEIT their game/week points for not submitting a roster of able players? If any Coach in the NFL could not field a rostered team that could play, they would FORFIET!
This rule would stop the hoarding of players that miss a few weeks and cause mgrs to Utilize the FA/WA market players as it is intended to be used.... It would also encourage trades...
There any mgr that submits a roster with a blank sport or a player that is IA/IR/NA/OUT would end up lossing the game and the total points for that week. Seems fair and objectively prudent in making this more practical as it relates to real/live sporting events.. Try it U will Like it.
PLAYOFFS: This system is a joke.... Its a silly gesture to take a team/mgr that has taken their team to the Number 1 in the league and then have that (best team/mgr) subjected to loosing the crown to a #4 team record of 8-7 or worse.. I had a team 8-1 and lost. Go figure? Lets just play the 16 games and the crown goes to the league leader... With the new rule change I submitted... If you really need a chance to win championships or have playoffs, then just after 16 games, let each team points be counted (all games/both active and bench points scored for each week) and the team with the greatest total point maker, WINS.... SOUNDS GOOD TO ME.
if that doesn't work, then create a divisional playoff between leagues that are the same and let the computer generate a playoff systems that takes the four teams from two leagues and mesh them into the playoffs? At least we are not playing against the teams we just beat with the exception of the #2 teams in the corresponding leagues as WILD CARD contenders... Sounds good to me. Are you all on board?
