I don't know why, but push notifications don't work for me in the Yahoo fantasy sport iOS app. In fact they don't work for anyone I know who uses it. So in need of a hacky workaround here's an IFTTT recipe that will generate an iOS notification on player status changes, for example when the player becomes injured.
As you can see I have all the preferences set to recieve push notifications and yet they never arrive.
Notifications will appear in your notification center. You can grab the recipe by following the module below.
