The only problem I have is with a QB getting the same for a touchdown as a WR. A QB has the OPTION of MANY to throw to several players on the field. Therefore, it is MUCH harder for a WR to get a TD than a QB. A QB should get LESS points per TD because he is ALWAYS going to be the one throwing the TD pass regardless of who is on the other end.
How does a QB get the same point total for a TD than a WR. The odds of a particular WR scoring a TD is MUCH MUCH more less likely than a QB throwing TD's to anyone on the field including WR's. No wonder Peyton Manning went first in this league's draft. If his throwing a TD is equivalent to anyone WR who catches it then of course he is going to be the top selection. In any other league picking a QB in the first round let alone with the first pick makes absolutely no sense. But with the scoring breakdown in this league it is a no brainer that Peyton should go first since he gets 6 points for every TD he throws.
QB's should get 3 points per TD and WR's 6 end of story.
This guy, who is a first year participant in our league but claims to have been in other leagues before, is acting like this point system (which is based upon the Yahoo defaults) is some unfair system that we came up with on our own out of thin air. He also acts like Peyton Manning isn't a first round choice in any other league besides ours.
I have repeatedly told him that a major flaw in his argument is the fact that EVERYONE has one, and only one, QB playing in a given week - and that everyone's starting QB has multiple options to throw to. But he still doesn't get it.
I should also note that he was nailed for 12 points last Sunday when his opponent had Delholmme threw a touchdown pass to Smith (both of whom were on his opponent's roster) and that he also has Favre as his #1 QB, so he might be frustrated that Favre's's top receiving threat went down for the season as well.
So, I'm curious - are there other fantasy football servers (like Sporting News, CBS Sportsline, etc.) that actually follow this guy's logic? Or is he really as crazy as I believe him to be?
