Having a date menu/selector at the top of the 'Standings' page would be a start, but ideally I'd like to see a simple line graph of the data by team (x-axis), and date (y-axis), showing one stat category at time, which was selectable. Does that make sense?
A line graph showing a trend in each category would be EXTREMELY helpful in determining needs.
Of course, any access to the data would be appreciated, even if it were just made available as a CSV download (actually, that would allow us to create our own graphs )

Thanks for the reminder. Sure enough, at least for roto leagues, there it is. Looks like we have the standings and full standings data for every day during the year.
How to display this data in an intuitive manner is an interesting question, but nice to know we have the data. That is sort of a necessary prerequisite.
It isn't "Simple", in that you immediately came up with two options, Bwanna quickly came up with a 3rd, and before I posted I had 2 or 3 others that aren't listed here heh... and since we aren't likely to put in 12 different ways to see it, it would be an interesting discussion for our designers to come up with the 1 or 2 best ways. That was what I meant
I saved my roto standings every monday in the past 6 years and I have it on my computer.
Its just that before seasons start I saved the Yahoo standings page, cleaned it cause I dont need the ads, the unnecessery links and drop down menus etc... that I was able to recognize and remove without screwing up the whole thing, and inserted a link to every week saved on my computer, so I can look up any week with a click, and thats it. Every monday I just make a copy of my standings htm on my computer, rename it, and copy paste the new stats into it. Takes about a minute. Oh well, now I had to do the minor change since Yahoo inserted GP and IP into the standings, but didnt take long.
