A single yield usually doesn't make sense -- you need one loop to generate 
the data

ONE_DAY = datetime.timedelta(days=1)

def dates(first, numdays):
    # generate datetime objects for extra clarity
    # note there are no implicit arguments like `base` in your code 
    for _ in range(numdays):
        yield first
        first += ONE_DAY

... and another one to consume it

def create_url(date):
    return "https:/example.com/{0.year}/{0.month}/{0.day}/".format(
        date
    )

def create_filename(date):
    # use fixed widths for month and day to avoid ambiguous
    # filenames, e. g. is "2017111.json" jan-11 or nov-1?
    return "{0.year}{0.month:02}{0.day:02}.json".format(date)

FIRST = datetime.datetime(2017, 1, 1)

for date in dates(FIRST, numdays=210):
    url = create_url(date)    
    r = requests.get(url)
    filename = create_filename(date)
    with open(filename, "w") as f:
        ...
