Projecting Fantasy Points, Weird Scoring System

Postby ZigZagMan » Thu Aug 09, 2007 12:28 pm

How would I go about projecting fantasy points for QBs in a league that uses the following chart?

passing points
from to pts
100 139 2
140 169 3
170 194 4
195 216 5
217 235 6
236 255 7
256 273 8
274 290 9
291 306 10
307 321 11
322 335 12
336 347 13
348 359 14
360 370 15
371 380 16
381 389 17
390 397 18
398 404 19
405 410 20
411 415 21
416 419 22
420 422 23
423 424 24
425 999 25

There's no real mathematical formula to use since the increments decrease with more yardage. I'm pretty stumped.

I'm not sure I would put much time into a league like that. It is too complicated. Whoever set this up has the formula to figure out how to rank the QB's and will use it to his exclusive advantage.

Basically you want to go for the QBs that get a ton of yardage, and not necessarily worry as much about TDs and such. Reason being, once you get up really high, you're getting a point for every few passing yards.

Agreed that you should find a different league, but rank your players by their projected passing yards for the season and go with the big yardage guys like Manning, Brees, Brady, Bulger, Palmer, and Kitna.
