    Vance didn't mention playing fantasy baseball at Yahoo since 1985, just being in the same league since then.

    According to Wikipedia, Yahoo added fantasy sports in 1999.

    If all of your team's position and bench slots are currently filled, you will have to create an opening to acquire a new player who is listed as NA or DL.

    pro leagues

    This, apparently, is the latest. A couple of weeks ago, pro leagues were projected to open mid-April; now it's anyone's guess.

    Pro Leagues for Fantasy Baseball aren't currently available, but they'll be back with a vengeance later on in the 2015 MLB season.

    Yahoo's Week One officially began April 5 at 12:00 a.m. Pacific time. When did your head-to-head league's draft conclude?

    Playoff Tiebreaker

    Copied from Yahoo Help:

    If a Fantasy Basketball, Baseball, or Hockey playoff game ends in a tie, the deadlock is broken (and a winner is declared) based on:

    - Head-to-Head (best win-loss-tie percentage in regular season games between the teams)
    - Overall playoff seed (highest seed wins)

    In leagues using standard Head-to-Head scoring (all Public and Pro Leagues), winning percentage is based on each team's stat category wins and losses, not overall matchup wins and losses.

    In Custom Leagues using a "One-Win" or "Points" system, the team with the best overall matchup win percentage against the opponent during the regular season (not stat category wins) wins the tiebreaker.

    Changing # of bench spots after draft errors?

    by Jared Mar 17, 2015 2:08 PM
    Christine Christine Mar 23, 2015 3:45 PM Flag

    Each team's roster cannot exceed 30 total positions (starting and non-starting).

    Limits for non-starting roster positions are DL-5, NA-5, BN-20. As Evil Chemist noted, the league's commissioner can increase the number of DL, NA, or BN spots after the draft has been completed but cannot decrease them.

    Why isn't Kris Bryant in player pool?

    by Brian Mar 22, 2015 9:20 AM
    Christine Christine Mar 22, 2015 10:23 AM Flag

    Check your league's settings. If "New Players Become Available" is set to "Wait until called up to Majors," Bryant's name will not appear in the current player list.

    Commish gone missing

    Yahoo will not intervene. However, if the commissioner does not return for next season, you can recreate the league. See Yahoo Help article SLN7088 (copied-and-pasted in part below):

    If you no longer have access to the account that was associated with the Commissioner last season and/or you are not the Commissioner from the previous season, you can still re-create the league.

    To re-create your league
    1. Log into Yahoo Sports Fantasy Hockey.
    2. Create a new league, using Express Registration to copy your league settings from last year. Make sure you add in a custom URL.
    3. Load your new league | Click Commish Tools.
    4. Click Edit League History.
    5. All leagues in which members participated the previous season will appear. Select the league you want associated with your new league | Click Save and Continue.
    6. Repeat Step 5 for as many years as you'd like associated with your new league.
    7. Click Done.
