I think it was under match up ratings, but when I look there now all I see it just the ratings for the same day. that is useless for free agents. I liked last year begin able to check out favorable players for the next day.

Go to the Players page, and select Fantasy Matchups from the rightmost dropdown selector. You can sort on the Matchup Rating as well.


found it, thanks.
I'm getting picky here.. I see it has the date for the following day. is there a way to get additional days ahead?

I don't *think* anywhere on the Yahoo! site exposes that data beyond the following day, if they even have it.

Which doesn't stop people from asking it many times each season, of course.

Makes sense. Thanks.

No problem. It is frustrating, but it is one of these problems that has no great answer. When I worked there I thought the approach used was at least guaranteed to be even handed, and now that I don't work there I still agree.

And now at least one more person knows the reasoning and can help share it :-)

If a player on my team has a 0% chance of getting an at bat on a day due to a game cancellation, there is a 100% chance I want to replace him in my lineup. So it would be nice to have this issue fixed. Thank you. :-)

You aren't reading. What I'm telling you is that the data feeds that come during the day aren't guaranteed to be reliable enough to ever give a 0% chance.

In one of my leagues I went to the wire looking for streaming options for tomorrow (Monday April 21).
So I sort by "Probable" and see that none of the guys who turn up are scheduled to pitch tomorrow. In fact when I swtich from "season" to "opponents" I realize that every pitcher listed is scheduled to start on Wednesday 4/23!
What is going here?

Another glitch (or perhaps just an annoying "feature" that was purposely programmed this way), that I have noticed lately:

Usually when you are on your team page, and click on a players "player note" icon, you get a small popup window with the notes, schedule info, % owned data, league availability, etc.
I always assumed the popup window was how its supposed to work.

However lately when I click the icon, it opens the actual player page in a whole new tab. This is rather annoying, and Im not sure why it happens sometimes.

Last year I could always look at a batters career numbers against a pitcher to make lineup decisions, pretty annoying that this was taken out especially since the matchup ratings are fraught with inaccurate info ie. Player X has not fared well against right handed pitchers like Pitcher X, when the pitcher is actually a lefty.


This complaint emerged right after the redesign... how many months does it take to get fixed? I mean really.
