Yahoo Fantasy issue where 'matchup tab does not match the lineup on MyTeam page' gets acknowledged

The Fantasy sports competition segment is full of options, and one of the most popular being Yahoo Fantasy.

Yahoo Fantasy allows American football fans to create their teams with real players. They will then earn points based on the players’ performance in real-world matches.


However, currently multiple Yahoo Fantasy users are facing an issue where the matchup tab does not match the lineup on MyTeam page.

Yahoo Fantasy matchup tab does not match the lineup on MyTeam page

The Yahoo Fantasy ‘matchup tab’ is where users place the players that will be part of their team lineup. However, according to reports, the custom matchup tab does not match the lineup on ‘MyTeam’ page.

Apparently, the matchup randomly changes on its own midway through the match.


@YahooFantasyCC League 326914. Players in matchup tab were switched out at the end of game and do no match the my team lineup. Changed outcomes of both semis.

@YahooFantasyCC everything in our league seems to be broke. People I had on the bench and had played are now in my lineup and people I dropped a couple days ago are back on my team with the new people no longer on my team. Please help

It’s worth pointing out that, for some users, the issue seems to have been fixed:

Yahoo Fantasy team is already aware of the issue and working on a fix, but there is no ETA yet. They also revealed that the ‘team page’ should be correct, so the problem is affecting the matchup page.

We have an issue with this currently where sometimes the matchup page’s lineup does not match the team page’s lineup. Our engineers are trying to fix the issue, but it should update eventually for you. The lineup on the team page should be the correct lineup.

We will update this story as events unfold.
