We’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue the Yahoo Communities effective Jan 24, 2019.
Be assured you will still be able to find answers to your Yahoo product and app questions on the Yahoo Help website (https://help.yahoo.com). In addition, you’ll be able to find the Yahoo Community moderators on Twitter, responding from our many handles including @YahooCare and @YahooFantasyCC.

Will Yahoo have a scheduling option for weekly round robin where each team play each other?
For example, in a 10-team league, each team will have nine individual head-to-head matchups and compile a weekly record (ex: 7-2, 4-5, etc...).
Our league always has a problem where high scoring teams take a h2h loss with an unlucky matchup...and conversely...low scoring teams end up with a win due to a good matchup. For instance, a team could score 110 points (2nd highest weekly score) and lose against a team scoring 115, while a team that scores 65 points (2nd lowest weekly) beats a team that scores 63.
Ultimately, by season's end, we have teams with 1,200 points that are 4-9 and teams that have 900 points that are 9-4 just by the luck of the draw.
I know other sites offer this option, just wondering if Yahoo will be adding it....?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I love this stuff, lol. But a couple things. First, on this: "Teams that draft and manage a good team should be the only ones rewarded, not the lucky."
You'll never eliminate luck and that includes bad as well as good. In a 10 team NFL league, my key players were Rodgers, Bell, Hunt, OBJ, Fitz and G. Olsen. I also smartly drafted Conner. I managed to squeak my way into the champ game, but if this had been "no adds or drops", my season would have been over before it started.
I totally agree on matchup luck, but there are ways to mitigate that. Obviously, the biggest (and simplest) is just play roto. You don't need a complex system when it's all about PF. Another idea: don't use divisions. They add another layer of luck. I run 2 Yahoo leagues and we've never used divisions. When you use PF as tie breaker, it pretty much eliminates that bad matchup luck component.
On your last idea about final 2 drafting from playoff teams, I like that idea, but it also seems to go against your mindset about drafting smartly. I keep this in mind when I draft a lot more than, say, bye weeks. You want guys on teams that are likely to still be fighting in Weeks 15/16. Either that or in a contract year, lol.
