Why are Safeties worth so little in FF?

i suggest to just change the scoring, but i dont agree they should be worth as much as a defensive td. if defensive tds are worth 6 points, id say 4 points for a safety is fair.

Safeties

2 points for the score and 2 for the turnover

and another 1 or 2 for the rarity.

So i would go as low as 4 minimum 5 maximum

you would also score a sack for the D. If it is the qb.

Yeah 4 points should be the standard. Never thought of that.

As long as we're there, has anyone ever thought of having a system where tackles for losses are worth like .3 points?

If we're adding points for rarity, shouldn't blocked kicks be worth more, too? Also, although it's not technically a turnover, it usually saves 3 points if it's on a field goal, so I would imagine you would want to add points there, too.

If you're going to change points for safeties based on rarity, everything else should be adjusted, too, or it's not fair.

Safeties are so rare, that they should be worth somewhere around 20 pts/safety just because of their rarity.

I wasn't kidding. I think that the team who is first able to pin the opposing team to the 5 yard line or less, than is able to overcome the offensive line and sack teh QB or make the RB run backwards deserves 30 points.
