It seems people are tweeting at Yahoo Fantasy's Accounts and it doesn't look like Yahoo is giving answers/explanation as to when it'll be back up.

I feel like it's weird when the bracket is this chalky. You'd think that the people in the lead have a big advantage, but every game from here on out (other than maybe Auburn and Oregon winning) people are going to be collecting points. So if you get a game wrong, people are gonna leapfrog you.

Yahoo on Twitter said scenario generator coming soon but more recently said "no plans for it this year"

First Yahoo separates Ohtani into 2 players and now no Scenario Generator? They're dead to me

how is the scenario generator not a relatively easy thing to code that should be live immediately when brackets go live?

And how does it change enough from year to year that it is a project for them to get it released in time this year?

This is awesome! Thanks for doing this. Can Yahoo hire you?

Any chance you could do the 250 as well?

That'd be awesome. Having no scenario generator really sucks. Especially in a year like this where so many of the 2^15 scenarios are legitimately plausible.

Re: 2019 NCAA March Madness $50 and $250 pools! (267 and 70 entrants last year)

So, I’m terrible at this and now drawing dead. I started a new 2nd Chance $50 pool on ESPN, if you want to join here is the 2p2 thread :

Is yahoo the only site that has a scenario generator? If not, I feel like this is a deal breaker for using them in the future. Sweating this tourney going forward really sucks without it.

Re: 2019 NCAA March Madness $50 and $250 pools! (267 and 70 entrants last year)

Hey folks,

I'm trying to scrape the $250 pool but I think only members can access the pages I need.

Can someone save and send me all of the Members pages? See below for a pic of the page I need.

I don't need a page for each user, I just need each page that lists a bunch of members. These are paginated at 25 brackets per page, so for example if there's 70 entries there'll be 3 pages.

Save each page as HTML only (not HTML/complete) and then shoot me a Dropbox or Google Drive link or whatever. Once I get those, I can scrape all the entries.

Also, with Yahoo scenario generator going belly up, I'll try and run some extra stats for each night's games to give us some sweats - maybe who's drawing dead after X team loses or who's losing a ton of equity or w/e. I'll think on it a little.

I got you - DM me your email and I will send them over


The thing you are already doing is amazing. I think the thing that would be sickest is if you can combine it with a win probability model, you can calc each bracket's equity and then say for each outcome how much equity each bracket would gain or lose.

Even treating every outcome as even, that would be awesome

Also the stuff you mentioned, who is drawing dead after team X loses or big equity gainers/losers if team X or Y wins etc would be awesome

I am in another one on pickhoops.com and it has a "best result" and "teams that must win in order for you to achieve your best result" which is also pretty helpful
