First of all, their player news sends like 3 notifications per player when they go from GTD to OUT to INJ to OUT in about 30 seconds (only for that player to end up playing), and then they notify you of every single add and drop, individually. I've tried to play around with which notifications I get, but their options seem pretty trash too. I just want to know when a player on my watch list is added or dropped and the status of my player an hour before tipoff. Is that too much to ask for? Am I just an idiot who doesn't know how to set my notifications up correctly?


Yahoo has been AWFUL this year. They got rid of gifs in the player discussions (player chat was fun for reactions), and have been terrible about Out/GTD/INJ statuses. Even more, they have not updated player positions in months, despite guys like Kyrie playing at SG for almost 3 months now.

I love the yahoo app as I think it is much cleaner than ESPN and yahoo has been superior overall in years past but this year they've really been genuinely poor.

Top 7 spots in dynasty all within 7 points. Looks like it may go down to the last week.

holy **** I got lucky picking up Noel because of Kyrie's absence opening up a spare roster spot. Decided on a whim to just fill in the last roster spot with the Noel handcuff and cut Kleber to get KPJ back in the lineup, and Mitch Rob immediately breaks his foot.

Ha yeah you're welcome! He'd sucked for a few games so I cut him. Big Noel fan if he could just get it all together

Well it looks like im headed for a G-League demotion for the first time in my Fantasy career!

Christ my team got absolutely SCREWED by injuries and other anomalies. Durant/Levert/Galo have missed MONTHS of games, Wall/Ball/Rose/Siakam have all missed around 10-20 games a piece. Horford was playing great when he played, but it was too great for OKC's tanking job so they started sitting him for 2 games after every game he played before doing something i have never seen and just listing him Out For Season. Not injury related or anything, just Out For Season because he was ruining their tank averaging 14/7/4/1/1 in just 28 minutes a game. Crazy. Anyways he missed 20 games as well because of "Coaches Decision". My main rebound/blocks guy Deandre Jordan has been demoted to a meme bench reaction gif supplier thanks to the addition of Griffin/Alderidge/Johnson. He's lucky to break 12 minutes a game with like 5 blocks total last month. 56 total blocks on the season show how much he went down.

Only bright spots have been Young putting up the same numbers as last season except for averaging around 6 points per game less, and Sabonis having a great season and putting up multiple triple-doubles while becoming my best rebounder with around 11 a game. Other than that i have been SOL with bottom tier replacement players.

To be fair every one of those guys except Siakam are all injury prone/missed significant chunks of seasons...

The Horford thing is odd. Surprised a contender didn't nab him for an expiring or he wasn't bought out. Love Sabonis, have him in dynasty and he's so good

Yeah I’ll just let the 21 year old point guard averaging 15/6 who balls out every time Wall rests hit the waivers. Heck maybe I’ll trade him for Delon Wright.
