Another Wacky Idea...

Actually...I guess my point was taken the wrong way...I should have explained further.

Kickers can mean a TON in fantasy football. Just because we draft them last doesn't mean they are worthless. The reason we draft them last is because it's dang near impossible to figure out which team is going to suck at scoring TD's but be good enough to get in the red zone a lot and which kicker is going to step up and drill them all. :-B

Jay Feely was probably undrafted in a lot of leagues...as was Neil Rackers. They propelled quite a few teams to wins last year because they were putting up 10+ points each week. How many times did your kicker (and defense for that matter) outscore your WR's? Probably quite a few times. Consistent scoring kickers help your team win BIG TIME.

Therefore, giving the kickers even more points for random things like last-second FG's really isn't my thing. They score enough as it is. :-/

This would be quite interesting.. especially with kickers. Though I can't say that kickers don't do much for a team. Rackers outperformed my RB2 on a regular basis.

Anyways, since there arn't a lot of statistics in soccer other than goals and assists, judges (I'm not sure whose judges they are) rate players as having 'special games' (for good defense, good passing, etc.) and give them points for that.
Should that be done for fantasy football? I like the idea of giving extra points to a kicker that hits the clutch field goal, or a QB/WR who hook up for a miracle hail mary, or even to a WR that makes a key block in a long rushing TD.

What do you guys think?


I don't know......um......I am still on the fact that there is fantasy soccer. If there is fantasy tennis i am done ;-)

tennis is actually a good fantasy candidate in my mind. You could easily have wins, unforced errors, second serve percentage, aces and probably straight set wins as cats.

It doesn't surprise me there is fantasy soccer. That said, anyone play fantasy hockey? Christ, there are too many 0s day in day out for me, and soccer would be worse. I think soccer is the one sport where "special game" has some relvance. How else would you judge full and half-backs sometimes? There are too many 1-0 or 2-0 games and somewhat random scores to have it have any relevance other than luck to some degree. You would have to have, goals, assists, saves as the obvious choices, perhaps tackles to reward defensive guys, and I would say cards against should be a cat, since there are so many floppers and hot heads.

I think soccer would be a boring fantasy enterprise, it isn't as statiscial as other sports. Its more team stats than individual IMO.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

Sure, but there aren't set schedules or teams, players can skip tourneys, etc. Sounds lame to me. When does the season start (isn't tennis a year round sport?). Anyways, you can count me out. :-t

That and the fact that you'd have to actually watch tennis and care. **** that.

A WR throwing a nice block? Who decides this...John Madden with his telestrator? What if I see my WR on the other side of the field give a nice eye gouge to the weak side DB? In order to score for plays like this, you'd also have to give negatives. Say your kicker pulls a Ray Finkle, or maybe your WR drops an EZ pass? What about your QB throwing an INT instead of taking a sack and only losing a few yards? Count me out of this, because I'd go nuts if I lost to some other FF team because some WR did their job and blocked.
