Head-to-Head scoring in Yahoo Fantasy

Face off against a new manager each week for the best stats. Each week is considered a Game Week and you'll earn wins, losses, and ties based on how your team performed against your opponent's team. At the end of the season, the team with the best winning percentage is crowned champion. There are 3 types of Head-to-Head available, depending on which sport you're playing.

Breakdown of each Head-to-Head format

Head-to-Head Points

Play against a different team each week to earn the most total points, instead of winning stat categories! You’ll also only get 1 point added to your W-L-T record per week. This is the default in fantasy football, basketball and hockey. 

  • The commish defines how many points each tracked stat is worth.
  • See what your commish setup is in the "League" tab, by clicking Settings.
  • The total points earned in a week determine what's added to the W-L-T record:
    • 1 added to Win - The manager with the most points.
    • 1 added to Loss - The manager with the least points.
    • 1 added to Tie - Both managers have the same points.
  • Points reset at the start of a new Game Week.

Head-to-Head Categories

Each week, your goal is to get the best stats from your active players. This is the default scoring type in fantasy baseball and it's available for hockey and basketball but not football. 

Tracked stat categories:

  • Each stat is considered 1 game per Game Week.
  • Games being won at any given time are shown on the league page.
  • Standings are finalized and added to your record at the end of each Game Week.
  • Stats reset at the start of each new Game Week.

W-L-T record:

  • Weekly wins, losses, and ties accumulate each week.
  • Your record is tracked in a Wins-Losses-Ties (W-L-T) format.
  • Your W-L-T record determines your standings and who wins the championship.

Head-to-Head One Win

This is identical to Head-to-Head Categories, except only 1 point is added to the W-L-T record per week. This scoring setting is available in fantasy baseball, hockey and basketball but not football. 

  • 1 added to Win - The manager with the most games won.
  • 1 added to Loss- The manager with the most games lost.
  • 1 added to Tie - Both managers win the same number of games.
