PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE add IP and H/AB to the matchups page.

That's one thing the mobile app has that I wish the web site had.

The autodraft feature should be comish controlled in private leagues. Especially Auction drafts. The different setup means prices can be totally different, and only takes one no show to screw up the whole league with it's stupid bidding. :-t

Suggestion for Pro Leagues- 50/50 leagues. Already a staple in daily leagues, the 50/50 format would entice owners to stay active for the entire season. If I'm in 9th place at the end of August I don't care enough to manage my team for the final month because it's highly unlikely I'll finish in the top 3. 6th place, on the other hand, is still with in reach. There's an incentive to update your team every day.

The problem is, who wants to spend every day, for 6 months, managing a team with the chance to only double your buy in?
50/50s are only practical for daily leagues where it takes 30 seconds to complete the lineup with no further attention required

From an investment standpoint, a 100% ROI over 6 months is pretty darn good.

From an investment standpoint, a 100% ROI over 6 months is pretty darn good.

But its not an investment. Its more like a meager hourly wage.

Anyway, using that logic, a 600% ROI is much better than a 100% ROI, right?
