Please settle an argument....

Postby Deamon » Sun Sep 14, 2008 7:03 pm

My friend is in a league that has a scoring system of 1 point for ever 30 yards rushing, and 6 points for a rushing TD. Is this normal? Under this system, someone who rushes for 200 yards and no TDs gets 6 points, and someone who rushes for 1 yard and 1 TD also gets 6 points. Thoughts?

Sounds like he is deliberately minimizing RB value, perhaps in response to the change in fantasy landscape (specifically, RBBC). Maybe he set it this way to capitalize on draft day? Scoop up all the top WR's while every wastes picks on LJ, McGahee, Addai, etc.? I agree, it is a silly setting. Your example proves the point.

Receiving yards are also 1 point for every 30 yards receiving

I agree it's not your "normal" scoring but I'm not sure what you would want to do. It's nothing more than a TD heavy league. Yes your example does so how there could be "odd" outcomes, but the same happens in normal leagues as well. As an example, I had to start SMorris as my flex this week. His statline, 8 carries for 0 yards, 2 catches for 7 yards, and 1 TD. Fantasy production of 7 points because of a .5 PPR for RB's. So he just gave me the same production as a RB who ran for 79 yards essentially.

Ours is 1 point for every 25 yards rec/rush, but only 3 points for a TD.
Also - 1 point for 50 yards passing and 3 for a passing TD.

It's stingy, but we like it. I think your league needs to devalue the TDs somewhat.

Yes, it is a VERY heavy TD league but what is the argument?

Yeah it's a little TD heavy - but there is nothing wrong with that.

I play in a money league that has been around for about 25 years and we just went to 1 point/25 yards this year (It used to be 1 point/50 and 2 points per 50 after 100 yds). Because it is with friends, for money and been around forever it is by far my favorite league to play in.

It's not like his league sucks because the scoring isn't a more typical format.

There are lot's of scoring quirks out there. You can maybe argue the benefits of a more 'performance' based system to him - but that doesn't make playing in a different sort of league any less fun.

League like that suck, because yardage is by far the best indicator of performance/consistency. Nothing worse than having a player eat up 60 yards of field and get stopped on the 4 yard line, and see the score go to a short pass to the fullback who almost never constributes offensively.

The player that gets the team in a position to score should be rewarded as well IMO. Hence balanced scoring for yardage and TDs.
