I would _love_ to be able to graph trends for each stat category for each team in a Yahoo league. Even if the actual graphs weren't provided by Yahoo, at least allow me to display (and export) standings for any date of the season -- so that I can create my own trend graphs.

Would be cool.



For me, I'd love to keep the "classic" option ... wasn't a fan of the drag and drop. As long as both options are there I'm happy.


The other, and maybe most important, recommendation would be to make the trading block more accessible. Front and center.

They could make it like CBS. That would be a big improvement. :-D

I was thinking what could be a great add for this coming season? Then it hit me. We have always had the ability to check to see how our players have done "Yesterday" or "Last Week" or Last Month". Very cool. But wouldn't it be really cool if there was a link to a page where all teams were listed and there was the ability to see how the other teams in your league are doing during those same periods? Then we could see how we compare and only have to navigate to one page instead of every team page individually. Currently we can see how all players are doing. But my wish would be simply to see how all teams are doing "Yesterday" or "Last Week" or Last Month" but cumulatively...like we see when click on Standings. When we click on Standings we see all team totals as well as point breakdown.

So, how about a similar page with team trends for the above mentioned time frames. I think CBS allows for this.

Any other suggestions? Thoughts?


Last season when suggestions were asked for, I suggested a way to look at standings from previous days, weeks and even months. ;-D

I still think it would be cool to be able to do multi-team trades.

Same suggestions I have every year.

Better keeper support.
Auction drafts.
More user defined stat categories.

Improvements to the UI is great and all, but I would rather there be upgrades to the base system.

I agree. What do you mean by user-defined stat categories? Can you give me some examples of how you would use them?
