This is actually the Yahoo/Ohtani vent and rant thread. 

haaaaaaaaaaaa coming from the same people that cant make ohtani both bat and sp in one player. seems highly unlikely

Yahoo is by far the premier fantasy baseball platform. Their Pro leagues are 2nd to none.

Why not.  It is way better to have a combo faab and waiver (if you bid $0 it works just like regular waivers) having played in both formats.

 one of the ways I liked having fun in the yahoo free leagues was having unlimited moves. most leagues/seasons I have 100+ adds. I would typically add player(s) on days where there were only a handful of games, that way I maximize the 162 games played allowed.

if I want to add a player I can bid $0? I've never done a league with this, was thinking it was like auction bidding where it had to be $1 minimum.

$0 bids are allowed.

Yes I'm in private roto leagues with FAAB.  You can bid $0 and I do it often.  I typically make about 200 moves a year in those roto leagues.  If you get the player for $0 you go to the back of the line waiver seed wise just like the old non-FAAB leagues.  If you get a player for $1 and up you keep your waivers seeding and don't go to the back of the line.

If you bid $0 and no one else does you keep your waiver priority, if you and another person bid $0 it goes to the highest priority and the winner then moves to 12(or how ever many teams in the league) at least this is how my yahoo pro basketball league works.

That's interesting.  I don't think the baseball one works like that because my $0 bids sent me to the back of the line whether anyone else bid $0 or not.  I'll have to check it this season and see if they made a change.  If they did that would be sweet.

It rarely matters anyway. The waiver order only comes into play when a bid on a player ties with another person. There will probably be some $0 adds where this may occur but for the most part its rare.

Not in my leagues.  They are 16 teamers so everyone is out there casting nets with $0 bids on fringe players all the time.  So guess it depends on the league.

Are these $0 bids made daily? I’m in a league that has no FA pickups. Everyone is picked up thru waivers, but waivers run only twice a week. Can’t lie...I hate that. Lol. 

 

In yahoo pro leagues yes. I assume a private league like yours could still do twice a week and still use the old waiver system and not faab.

Speaking of CBS is there any way to export weekly point league stats from last year? I usually export this data at the end of each season but forgot to back in Nov and now it seems to be gone

Not sure exactly what you want here. But under custom reports, you can select weekly scoring for all teams. After the report generates for 2020, you can use the drop down box to select 2019 for the report format. But this may not be what you are looking for. The standard export to Excel should be at the bottom.

Good to know.  Guess I was always doing it against other $0 bids most of the time.

Probably, but you can see the other bids under the FAAB Bids tab. Only on PC not on app. I pointed out a flaw in this to Yahoo years ago and it is semi-fixed. In the past you could just throw $0 bids out there on players you may not be interested in and other teams are and if you already got your guy and couldn't fit a guy on your roster it would still calculate a tie with another team and drop that teams waiver order to end of the line.

How did you extract it in previous years in Nov?

So you are looking for a game log for each player? There are a lot of info and tabs on the player page.

Apologies if I've missed it here already, but has Yahoo stopped doing cash leagues? I'm not finding any yet.

this is what they sent me;

Thank you for contacting Yahoo Sports. I understand your concern regarding converting into a cash league.

As of right now, cash leagues are not yet available. This will change once Pro leagues get released. We do not have an exact date for this yet, however, we are aiming for mid-February.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Regards,

Josh

The Fantasy “experts” had their first draft of the year, LABR (15-team mix roto).

https://rtsports.com/labr-mixed-draft

Am I the only one that thinks it's absolutely insane how late Julio Urias is going? 188??? In between Marquez and Heaney??? After guys like Odorizzi, Maeda??? Holy Christ.... I just see profit profit profit!
