    Yahoo! will not be offering Pro Leagues this year for some reason (only applies for hockey and basketball). Big let down. I'm trying out CBS but its not nearly as good.

    I'm looking at CBS sports. Appears to be the most similar to Yahoo!.

    You guys were right. I was wrong...wow, I'm mad...

    Hello Blake,

    Thank you for being a Yahoo user. We appreciate you choosing to use Yahoo and truly hope you continue to use Sports, as you have been.

    For the 2014-2015 season, Yahoo Sports won't be offering Pro Leagues in Fantasy Hockey and Basketball. Don't worry, everything else that you love Yahoo Fantasy Sports will still be available.

    Not sure what's available outside of Pro Leagues? You get all of the same great features that you had in Pro Leagues for free by playing in a Custom League or a Yahoo League.

    If you have any further concerns regarding this issue Blake, please let me know and I will be happy to assist you.

    Thanks,

    Alfred

    Pro Leagues

    WOW, not sure why it keeps removing my post...trying to post the following: Hi Michael, go to the General topic and check out the first post, if its still there. May be a few down now and check out our responses to each other. I'm currently waiting on a response from Yahoo! on this. Their website sadly says they wont be offering Pro League's for hockey and basket (don't care about basketball) for the 2014-2015 season. However, before I saw this, I emailed customer care and they responded back saying there would be...and that they would open as it gets closer to the regular season (similar to what happened last year). Once I get a response I will post it in the ongoing topic in the General section. Hope this helped.

    Hi David and Chances14, I just sent the following message to customer service. I will post back in here once I receive a response:

    Are Fantasy Hockey Pro League's going to be available for the 2014-2015 season? Sean from customer service wrote me this in a recent email: "The Pro leagues should become available soon as it gets closer to the season. You probably already noticed we don't have them up and running yet as we are still getting the Football season up and running". However, your website currently says this: "For the 2014-2015 season, Yahoo Sports won't be offering Pro Leagues in Fantasy Hockey and Basketball. Don't worry, everything else that you love Yahoo Fantasy Sports will still be available". Which is it actually going to be? I have two completely different answers and both of them are coming directly from Yahoo!. Can someone please give me the correct answer?

    Hello Blake,

    Thank you for being a Yahoo user. I want to apologize for any inconvenience this issue has caused you. I assure you that I will do what I can to help resolve your issue.

    After a review of your issue, we understand that you would like to join some Hockey Pro Leagues. The Pro leagues should become available soon as it gets closer to the season. You probably already noticed we don't have them up and running yet as we are still getting the Football season up and running.

    Again, sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you, and I hope I was able to address all of your questions.

    Additional information on this, and other Yahoo products, can be found on the Yahoo! help page.

    If you have any further concerns regarding this issue Blake, please let me know and I will be happy to assist you.

    Thanks,

    Sean

    David is wrong. I e-mailed customer service and they said it will be posted soon. I was told they are trying to finish up all the fantasy football drafts/details first since the season is fast approaching for that. I remember last year the same thing happened, the Pro leagues were not up right away so I joined one on CBS and then 2 days later Yahoo opened them and I dropped the CBS one and came back to Yahoo. We just have to be patient, unfortunately.

  • Looking for suggestions on dropping anyone I drafted and looking for a replacement via waivers, is my team decent? Have a shot and doing well? 12 team league. Head to head, standard categories. Thanks guys! Have a good one & good luck!
