I heard today on the radio that Yahoo profits were 5 times higher in the last year than the year before (mainly advertising I spose). They can obviously afford some free fantasy games and still look after the bank balance.
On the changes to qualifying at new positions, this could be a pain in the but. I dropped players at the cutoff dates last season presuming they would not qualify this season (Hafner comes to mind). I havent checked the numbers but I'm sure there will be cases where it will have an impact on many keeper (dynasty) leagues.
I'm not sure its fair to use yahoo public leagues as mock drafts. I know its always the same but surely there are other ways to practice your drafting skills without mucking other people around.
Anyway, bring on the season
